Discrepancies and mistakes: radiology errors

While the vast majority of patients treated in both inpatient and outpatient settings in New Jersey and across the country receive appropriate and timely care, medical treatments are provided by people and people can make mistakes. When discussing medical malpractice, most people think of clinical errors such as misdiagnoses or surgical errors. Another area where a mistake can be made is in radiology.

What constitutes medical malpractice?

While it would be wonderful for all medical treatments and procedures to go exactly as planned, the medical world is fueled by people, and people do make mistakes. In some cases, treatment doesn't turn out as hoped even though no mistake is made. Given these truths, how do you know when you might have the basis for a medical malpractice suit?

Protecting victims of medical malpractice in New Jersey

Health care professionals are charged with certain performance standards within their fields of expertise. Most of us understand that any medical procedure or treatment has a certain degree of risk involved. But we believe patients are entitled to expect the provider's care to be the best possible. Unfortunately, sometimes that trust has been misplaced. Preventable injuries do sometimes happen because someone somewhere along the treatment line committed medical malpractice.

Know your rights when health care professionals make errors

Residents of New Jersey rely on medical professionals to deliver quality, safe services from the pediatrician's office to the operating room. However, physicians and other health care professionals are still people, and people can make mistakes. Tragically, mistakes in the medical field can lead to serious consequences for the person being treated.

40 years combined experience didn’t prevent doctor error

Patients who need surgery are never guaranteed a positive outcome. Burlington residents know that. It's reasonable to assume, however, that the doctors and medical staff involved in an operation won't make avoidable mistakes.

Medical malpractice can extend to dentists

There are many reasons for personal injury lawsuits to be filed. It doesn't matter if you live in New Jersey or any other area of the country. Seeking compensation when you've been injured by another person is something that our legal system supports. When the injury is proven to be caused by doctor error, medical and other needs may be provided by holding the practitioner accountable.
