Protecting the Rights of South Florida Patients

Radiology is an important technology in health care that helps diagnose and treat disease. Unfortunately, this life-saving tool can cause considerable harm when radiologists make mistakes in dosing or reading the test results.

Brais Law Firm’s attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience in medical malpractice and have recovered almost $40 million in the last four years alone*. Our lawyers have been honored with membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and designation as Rising Stars, Super Lawyers and Legal Elite. Our Results page gives details about our high-dollar recoveries.

Our team understands the technical aspects of radiology and has access to experts who assist us with investigations and trial preparations. We apply our substantial knowledge and dogged determination to recovering your rightful compensation.

Misdiagnosis of Diagnostic Radiology Test

Diagnostic radiology provides a minimally invasive means of looking inside the body. Through various diagnostic radiology tests, doctors are able to diagnose such conditions as broken bones, soft tissue injuries, heart disease, brain damage, cancer and fetal disease.

However, the test is only as good as the doctor who interprets it. Misdiagnosis can result in missed opportunities for treatment or the receipt of unnecessary, harmful treatments.

Our Miami radiology malpractice lawyers handle misdiagnosis claims related to all types of radiology tests, including:

  • Computed tomography (CT or CAT scan)
  • GI and barium enema scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Mammography
  • X-ray
  • Nuclear, including bone, thyroid and cardiac stress tests
  • Positron emission tomography (PET scan)
  • Ultrasound

Overdose of Therapeutic Radiation

Radiation is used to kill cancer tumors. However, radiation in high doses has serious, potentially life-threatening, side effects. For this reason, doctors must carefully monitor how much radiation patients receive in a single setting and over time. In the short-term, radiation overdose may cause hair loss, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, fatigue and disorientation. High doses of radiation may contribute to the growth of cancerous tumors and early death.


Damages in Radiation Malpractice

The damages you are entitled to depend upon the nature and extent of your injuries. In order to prevail on a radiology malpractice claim, we prove your injuries and that your injuries resulted from the medical error.

When calculating damages in a radiation sickness claim, we consider such factors as:

  • Treatment of radiation sickness
  • Disabilities caused by overdose of radiation
  • Anticipated future care
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Pain and suffering

In the immediate period following high dose radiation, you cannot have contact with loved ones because of risk of contaminating them with radiation. You also have a higher chance of getting cancer after an overdose of radiation. Your isolation and fear for the future may also cause emotional turmoil for which you deserve compensation.
