Baltimore, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/03/2017 -- Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC, a Baltimore, MD-based law firm that handles birth injury, cerebral palsy and many other types of medical malpractice cases, is pleased to announce they are available to represent cases that involve the misinterpretation or delay of important medical information.
Unfortunately, radiologists sometimes fail to diagnose or communicate anything negative or positive they see on an X-ray, MRI, CT-scan or mammogram, making it necessary to file medical malpractice lawsuits against them. In fact, some medical malpractice lawsuits may even be filed if the radiologist failed to review the results in time and the patient suffered an injury or died.
Sometimes, radiologists do not always communicate with the patient directly, but that does not mean they should not communicate their findings to the patient's doctor right away. For example, if a patient's X-rays were done on Friday and the radiologist did not review the results until Monday—and the patient died over the weekend as a result—this lack of prompt communication may be considered medical malpractice. Overall, if a radiologist fails to communicate his or her findings in a timely fashion and the patient suffers, the patient or his or her surviving loved ones may seek legal counsel for any injuries or loss of life.
