How An Infection Can Be Misdiagnosed

Lab tests and blood work can help to identify an infection. Even armed with the proper lab tests and their results your doctor can misread, misunderstand or misinterpret them. There have even been reports of physicians, oncologists, infectious disease providers, surgeons and orthopedists not reviewing lab or blood results at all.

Sometimes doctors may totally overlook signs indicating infection. They may also totally neglect to order the tests to begin with. All of these may entitle you, and your loved ones, to compensation for your injuries, missed work time, pain, suffering and possibly death.
