Rolling Meadows Medical Malpractice Law Firm Pursuing Compensation for Radiologist Mistakes 

In life, there are instances of medical mishaps that happen through no fault of an individual. However, many cases of medical malpractice cause irreversible damages. When these mistakes happen, all responsible parties must be held accountable to ensure that an affected family is best able to cope with the loss of wages due to missed work, additional medical expenses caused by the error and pain and suffering. 

If you or a loved one has been injured due to a misread x-ray, ultrasound, or MRI, contact Newland & Newland, LLP to see if you are eligible for compensation. During an initial consultation, we will gather information regarding the facts and circumstances leading up to your medical malpractice incident. We will evaluate and advise you of the probability of success and provide you with an estimate of the amount you may be entitled to recover.

The Importance of X-Rays and Ultrasounds

Both x-rays and ultrasounds are imaging tools that look at different parts of the body to determine irregularities or disease. X-rays are usually used for imaging on hard structures or hard tissues, while ultrasounds are typically used for soft tissues and structures. Both are crucial steps for determining whether additional measures must be taken to protect the health of you or your loved one. Common sites for x-rays include one's bones, lungs, and the digestive tract. Ultrasounds are used to view the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, heart, or breasts.

Failure to Address Unclear Screenings

X-rays and ultrasounds are crucial steps in diagnosing an illness or irregularity. In every case, x-ray technicians, doctors, and other medical personnel review the images to determine if anything is present that might be cause for concern. This process of interpretation is often where errors occur. In many cases, medical personnel look at x-rays and ultrasounds and do not notice the irregularities or attribute the condition to something less significant, failing to err on the side of caution. This often leads to harmful health consequences that could have been avoided. If you or your loved one has been injured by a misread imaging screen, contact Newland & Newland, LLP to determine your rights to relief.
