Could Your Medical Problem Have Been Prevented?
In a medical system where specific tests are conducted in order to help patients receive the appropriate treatment, the misinterpretation of test results by lab technicians, primary physicians, medical specialists, surgeons and other medical professionals can have catastrophic or devastating results.
At Nagel Rice, we assist clients who have suffered injury or developed serious medical conditions caused by misread test results. Whether your condition resulted from a delay in diagnosis or because of a misdiagnosis based on misread lab reports, we will help you and your family pursue the highest amount of compensation possible.
The failure to interpret test results properly can result in the misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a serious problem.

Pursuing Compensation For Injuries Caused By Misread Test Results And Doctor Malpractice
While some conditions can be difficult to diagnose, an inaccurate or delayed diagnosis based on misread test results could be the result of doctor negligence, lab technician errors or defective medical instruments. In such cases, you may have legitimate grounds to pursue a medical malpractice claim against the responsible party or parties.
Our lawyers are committed to pursuing the highest amount of compensation on behalf of those whose injuries or medical conditions were caused by misread medical tests. Such claims include instances where treating physicians failed to properly interpret X-rays, CAT scans, MRIs, blood test results or other lab test results. Other claims may involve lab technician failures, faulty test equipment or improperly calibrated machinery, leading to skewed test results.
Medical test results that are not properly interpreted can result in a number of serious and often costly complications, including:
- Delay in diagnosis
- Misdiagnosis of cancer and other serious and perhaps preventable conditions
- Prescription errors
- Surgical mistakes
- Birth injuries
- Wrongful birth/wrongful life
