Misread X-Rays, CT Scans and MRIs

Misread X-rays, CT Scans and MRIs In the last 30 years, medical technology has dramatically changed the way doctors diagnose illnesses. Although plain x-rays are still used, CT scans and MRI's have allowed non-invasive diagnosis of a variety of diseases. Radiologists are physicians who read these diagnostic films and report their findings to your treating doctor. Patients almost never see the radiologist who reads their films but the radiologist is a very important part of the treatment team. Sometimes the doctor who orders a diagnostic film will read it himself or herself. Accurate reading of diagnostic films is essential because it forms the basis for your entire treatment plan.

Occasionally, the proper diagnostic films are not ordered or the films are misread by a radiologist or by a treating doctor. These errors can set in motion a treatment plan that is harmful to the patient, or that can delay proper treatment.

When a patient seeks our help concerning a case of Radiology medical malpractice, misread diagnostic films, or failure to order the proper radiological testing, the first step is to get copies of all of the films and have them reviewed by a consulting radiologist. We also consult with a doctor from the treating physician's area of specialization, so that we can better understand the impact of the medical error on the patient's outcome.

Client Reviews
My 15-year-old son suffered a life-altering closed head injury that left him disabled for life when he was injured in a truck accident. I went to Mike Miller for help. Mike and the law firm were the greatest people I have ever been around. Everything they did was excellent, above and beyond the call of duty. They were able to recover enough to let me leave my job and devote full time care for my son. To this day, they are more than happy to talk with me and take care of anything that comes up. J.M.
Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for. C.L.
A patient with a stroke was not transferred to a hospital capable of treating her. The client said, "We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad's integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great." C.M.
Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman's comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life. T.R.
