Assisting Victims Of Laboratory Errors
Have you been a victim of a laboratory error? At Kammholz Messina, LLP, our attorneys understand that most victims of medical malpractice do not know exactly where the negligence originated. They know that something was done wrong, but rarely can they pinpoint exactly where it happened.
In every case, we conduct a thorough investigation to find out what went wrong and to get answers for the victim. We bring in experts to help us review the evidence. Sometimes, we find that the doctor was not responsible. He or she ordered lab tests and that is where things went wrong. If a lab test is conducted but not properly read, major problems can be missed and treatment can be delayed. We will find out exactly what happened, and we will hold negligent parties accountable for laboratory errors.
The Importance Of Investigation In Medical Malpractice Cases
When we find out that blood tests or pap smears were conducted, we will carefully review the test results. With the help of experts, we may discover that this is where the negligence occurred. Lab technicians may have conducted tests improperly, leading to a medical condition being missed. It is also possible that the tests were conducted correctly, but the results were not properly interpreted. Perhaps a doctor or laboratory technician was simply looking for the wrong thing and missed the obvious.
Misdiagnosis And Failure To Diagnose
Cases involving lab errors tend to be cases of failure to diagnose and treat a medical condition. In many cases, the medical condition is cancer. When cancer is involved, lost time means missed opportunities for treatment. Of course, these cases could involve infections and other conditions as well. We have decades of experience, which means our lawyers know the appropriate action to take in these challenging cases.
