Man Claims MRI Negligence Caused Him To Suffer Burns
Magnetic resonance imaging scans are generally viewed as being fairly safe and routine medical procedures. However, patients do occasionally suffer injuries during such scans.

Burns from MRI Malpractice in New Jersey
Whether or not a patient is entitled to compensation from a hospital for injuries suffered during a procedure at the hospital depends on many factors, including: what the standard of care is for the procedure, whether the hospital or its staff violated this standard of care and whether the injuries the patient suffered were caused by a standard of care violation. Medical malpractice attorneys can look into these complex issues for individuals here in New Jersey who have been hurt during an MRI scan or some other type of medical procedure at a hospital.
Recently, a man alleged that mistakes by staff at a hospital caused him to get burned during an MRI scan. According to the man, he underwent an MRI scan at a hospital in New York. The man claims that metal EKG leads had previously been put on his chest and that the hospital’s staff mistakenly left these EKG leads in place during the MRI scan. The man says that this resulted in him suffering third-degree burns during the course of the scan. The man is suing the hospital in relation to this alleged MRI negligence.
