Imagine going through disfiguring surgery, chemotherapy and radiation only to later learn that you never really had cancer. It happens more frequently than you'd think.
Sacramento medical malpractice attorney Noël M. Ferris represents clients who have been injured because of the negligence of doctors, pathologists, radiologists and other health care providers in cases involving in the interpretation and communication of test results.
Recreating Real-World Conditions
In these cases, Ms. Ferris sends pertinent test results to an expert for review. However, she does not just send the expert a single X-ray or slide.
She sends the expert six or seven X-rays, for example, without noting which one she is concerned about. It's a way to mimic what a physician would do during a normal work day. If the expert is able to correctly interpret the X-ray under those conditions, it can strengthen a client's case.
Ms. Ferris also handles cases involving delayed X-ray, pathology slide or other test results. These tests can be performed and interpreted correctly, but if the doctor never reads the results or the results don't get to the doctor in time, the patient can suffer serious consequences.
