Radiology Medical Malpractice

Radiology is a specialized type of medical malpractice because it typically involves an image, such as an x-ray, MRI, or CT scan. In short, these cases usually involve a “picture” that justifies the claim. While physical evidence, such as an image, might seem to simplify a medical malpractice case, they are usually very complicated. In most cases, these images are difficult to interpret. A skilled legal professional or doctor might be able to identify an abnormality, but most observers could not, and an unprincipled insurance company might deny the presence of an irregularity in the test.
