Reasons for Infection Misdiagnosis

Lab tests and blood work can help to identify most infections. Even armed with the proper lab tests and their results your doctor can misread or misinterpret them.

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.
