Proving Liability For Misread Mammograms And Other Medical Testing Errors In New Jersey
Having an accurate diagnosis can be crucial to preventing and treating an injury or illness appropriately. X-ray errors, testing problems and misread pathology reports can all lead to the delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious health problem – one that would otherwise have been preventable.

We represent people in Bergen County and throughout New Jersey with medical malpractice claims involving:
- Mechanical X-ray errors such as taking X-rays of the wrong part of the body or from the wrong angle
- Misinterpretation of X-rays, angiograms, EKGs, MRIs, mammograms and other specialized tests used to diagnose fractures, obstructed cardiac, brain injury, breast cancer and other types of cancer
- Misinterpretation of pathological studies, oncology reports and other lab tests
- Failure to call in a specialist or request follow-up tests if initial tests indicate clear warning signs of a more serious condition
Unlike other types of personal injury claims, medical malpractice requires an in-depth medical analysis before the claim is even filed. This is because not all adverse outcomes are the result of medical mistakes, nor all mistakes necessarily malpractice. Beyond proving whether medical negligence was involved, you must also prove that it was a primary factor in causing further injury or illness.
Our attorneys work with the appropriate medical and radiological experts first to establish whether medical negligence was involved. We can then provide you with an honest consultation on whether filing a legal claim is even possible. If so, we have the trial skills and practical experience to pursue damages on your behalf.
