There are a number of medical errors that can leave a person detrimentally injured and harmed.

In many cases, misread tests cause the following damages:

- Abscess growth

Can I File a Lawsuit if a Doctor Misread My Tests?
When you visit a physician, they are required to provide the duty of ordinary standard of care. This means the doctor is required to treat you respectfully, correctly, and professionally. With this being said, physicians must practice thorough examinations of your body and any health issues. In addition, doctors are required to provide accurate test results. If a doctor misreads your test results or violates the standard of care, they commit a breach of the standards of care and can be sued for negligence or medical malpractice.
