Yes, if you suffer significant injury or harm due to the misdiagnosis of a spinal infection, this does give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit. Physicians are trained to suspect a spinal infection when the patient presents to them with the signs and symptoms of the condition. It is essential that the condition be timely diagnosed and then treated to prevent permanent damage. Diagnostic tests used to diagnose the condition include a blood culture, complete blood count, and a CT Scan or MRI of the spine.
If your spinal infection is misdiagnosed, yet you presented all the signs and symptoms of the condition to your physician, you do have legal rights to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. This type of lawsuit will collect compensation for your pain and suffering, any medical costs, lost wages, and other benefits.
