Misdiagnosis of Bone Infections

In the past, osteomyelitis was considered an untreatable condition. Today, it is treatable, but must be handled with the utmost care and precision. If a bone infection is not promptly treated, it can spread to the bloodstream and other parts of the body.

In many cases, doctors mistake the symptoms of osteomyelitis with those of other diseases, such as:

  • Gout;
  • Cellulitis;
  • Diabetic ulcers;
  • Tuberculosis infection;
  • Avascular necrosis; and/or
  • Bone cancer.

The treatments for these conditions are of little help to people with osteomyelitis and unnecessary treatment can present additional medical problems.

We conduct thorough investigations to determine the cause of our clients’ injuries.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
