Dangers of X-rays

The development of x-ray technology is one of the most significant advances in modern medicine because it allows doctors to detect internal problems that one cannot see. These machines use electromagnetic radiation to find problems in the skeletal system – usually concerning broken bones – lungs, intestines, and other internal organs. Unfortunately, while x-rays are very useful in finding causes of ailments, they also have the potential to be harmful because of the significant amounts of radiation to which patients might be exposed during the test.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice and is suffering from radiation injuries as a result, you may be able to pursue financial compensation through legal action. Contact Your Iowa lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233 today to speak with a qualified attorney. We can help you to hold negligent medical professionals accountable for the harm that they have caused.

X-Ray Side Effects

The radiation from x-rays can be very beneficial when used correctly, but it can be devastating when mistakes are made. Doctors or nurses should always cover certain areas of the body and only expose the intended areas to the machine. If these medical professionals fail to act responsibly, the patient could suffer the following:

  • Skin cancer
  • Severe burns
  • Skin damage
  • Damage to reproductive organs
  • Birth defects
  • Leukemia

It is important that medical professionals are held to a high standard, and if you have been harmed by an improperly administered x-ray, a civil lawsuit can help you to hold the responsible parties accountable.
