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.
