Radiological Misdiagnosis

Connecticut Radiological Lawyers – Kocian Law Group

In an increasingly technological world, medical professionals use a host of tools to diagnose conditions. X-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, and MRIs can help find and treat everything from broken bones to cancer. Yet even advanced machines can’t compensate for all types of human error. When something goes wrong with the tests doctors rely on, you may find yourself with a misdiagnosis. In that case, Kocian Law Group can help.

A misdiagnosis based on radiological testing may occur in many different circumstances. Sometimes, radiologists misread images or test results. Other times, doctors who are not radiologists rely on their own readings of difficult or badly-produced images, rather than re-ordering testing or consulting an experienced radiologist.  A doctor may also erroneously rely on the “typed report” produced by the machine without reviewing the substance of the information gathered by the test to independently assess whether the device’s reading was correct. Unfortunately, a faulty machine can give bad results. At Kocian Law Group, we use the facts of your case to map out our course of action.

Radiological misdiagnosis can have devastating effects, as prompt diagnosis is the key to fighting many diseases. For example, doctors can treat cancer, and can preserve your life and functioning so long as the cancer is caught early. A misdiagnosis can add months to your treatment time, and those months can mean the difference between life and death.

Likewise, a wrongful diagnosis can cause you irreparable harm. If doctors start you on a course of treatment for a condition you don’t have, you could be facing a myriad of health issues. You also lose the time and money you spend pursuing a course of treatment that does not address the condition you actually have.

Kocian Law Group can help you recoup your losses. We will examine your case and get reimbursement for unnecessary treatment as well as reimbursement for future treatment needed to correct the damage. We can help you get money for time out of work, loss of function and enjoyment, and pain and suffering. If radiological misdiagnosis leads to the death of a loved one, we can help you file a wrongful death suit. Kocian Law Group is a multi-purpose family firm. Let us guide you through this process.
