People put a lot of trust in doctors to help them heal and improve their health. That is what makes it so stressful and frustrating when a medical error leaves you worse off than you were before you saw the doctor. A missed or wrong diagnosis from a radiologist – doctors who use x-rays and other technology to analyze patients – can result in serious harm to the person being examined. Whether the error is in reviewing an x-ray or in communicating the results of that review to a treating physician, it can mean that the person being examined simply does not get the treatment that is needed to properly address any conditions. That can make existing injuries even worse and in some cases lead to death.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a radiology error, you have the right to seek compensation from those responsible. A radiology malpractice attorney on Cape Cod can help you sue both the medical professional who made the mistake and in many cases their employer. The money damages usually available in these cases include compensation for related medical costs, missed wages due to time away from work, and pain, suffering, and emotional distress. In tragic cases in which a person dies as a result of medical negligence, their loved ones have the right to sue those responsible for wrongful death. These lawsuits allow the loved ones to take the place of the deceased person and seek similar compensation to that which would have been available had the person lived.
To get that compensation, you need to show that the radiologist or another medical professional failed to live up to what lawyers and judges call a “duty of care.” The duty for medical professionals is based on their training and experience. The primary question in medical malpractice cases is: what would a reasonable doctor have done under the circumstances? If the answer is that they would have properly diagnosed the person being examined and communicated that diagnosis, a radiologist who makes an error is likely to be found liable for any injuries that resulted. Expert testimony and medical evidence often go a long way in establishing the duty of care.Contact a Knowledgeable Cape Cod Radiology Malpractice Attorney
