Seattle Radiology Error Attorney

Radiology is a specialty field in medicine that deals with the interpretation of diagnostic tests such as X-rays, mammograms, CT scans, MRI, ultrasounds and other imaging studies. Some radiologists are more skilled at reading these results than others, and the reality is that even a good radiologist can fail to see a positive finding.

The law firm of Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan in Seattle, Washington, has represented numerous individuals who were the victims of radiology errors that led to a missed diagnosis. Our firm has recovered a number of substantial settlements and verdicts for patients after radiologists failed to diagnose cancer.

We are one of the few firms in the state that concentrates its work in the complex field of medical malpractice. Attorney Steven R. Pruzan is an experienced Seattle radiology error lawyer who has focused on medical malpractice cases for more than 35 years. In that time, he has established a nationwide network of medical specialists who help him determine when a radiology error is an actionable offense.

An increasing number of cases in this area involve interventional radiology, a medical specialty in which radiologists use X-rays, MRIs and other technologies to treat medical conditions. There are many different types of interventional radiological procedures, designed to treat everything from cancer to heart disease to deep vein thrombosis.

In many of these procedures, a catheter is inserted into an artery and moved through the body to the site of the problem. If inserted or advanced improperly, it can perforate the artery, causing a life-threatening emergency.

If you were harmed because of errors in interventional procedures or if you believe a member of your family died due to a medical error, you should speak to a lawyer about your rights. Call 206-388-5038 or email us to schedule a free consultation.
