Medical Errors Involving Imaging And Diagnosis

Radiologists are responsible to accurately interpret X-rays, MRIs, mammograms and CAT scans. Detecting cancer early in diagnostic tests can prevent cancer from spreading into lymph nodes. However, when medical professionals misread diagnostic tests, the consequences can be life-threatening.

If you believe a radiologist or diagnostic technician failed to diagnose your cancer or another serious illness, you may have a medical malpractice claim. This is a highly complicated area of the law. Select an experienced attorney with a clear understanding of how the law applies to the practices of medicine. For more than 50 years, Chiariello & Chiariello has provided a strong voice to New Yorkers with medical negligence claims. We are committed to helping you assert your rights to fight back against any injustice you have endured.

When Radiologists And Other Professionals Make Critical Mistakes

Radiologists work at the front lines to try and interpret test results before medical conditions become more serious. When radiologists and other medical professionals fail to properly read X-rays and other test results, critical time is lost. This can dramatically affect individuals' recovery rates when suffering from cancer and other serious medical conditions.

When the stakes are high, entrust our law firm to help you protect your rights. The medical malpractice lawyers at our law firm have the skills and legal resources to prove fault against radiologists, doctors and technicians for:

  • Failure to properly read MRIs
