Medical Lab Mistakes
Typically, a patient will be tested at a doctor’s office and the sample will be sent to a medical laboratory for analysis. The specimen may change hands many times as it moves its way through the system. While there are strict protocols in place to make this process run smoothly, mistakes do happen.
Examples of lab errors include:
- Pathology lab errors: Pathology laboratories handle the examination of biopsies, blood samples, tissue samples, and other specimens. Errors by laboratory staff can lead to the misdiagnoses or delayed diagnosis of cancer, diabetes, and other diseases.
- Radiology lab errors: In a radiology lab, there are numerous scans that must be carefully administered and analyzed. Equipment error and human error can lead to misreading results.
Communication errors are often the result of lab errors. Sometimes, the lines of communication between the doctor and the lab are broken. If such a lab error has caused you or your loved one significant injury, our attorneys are here to help you explore your legal options.
