Cellulitis and similar conditions difficult to differentiate

Cellulitis is a common physical ailment in New Jersey and around the country. Although medical personnel work diligently to fight this condition whenever they encounter it, the situation is sufficiently complex that misdiagnoses remain common.

Although cellulitis is caused by a bacterial infection, sometimes even by MRSA or other drug-resistant staphylococcus bacteria, there are a substantial number of serious physical ailments that either mimic the symptoms of cellulitis or cause underlying problems that will lead to a cellulitis infection and will remain untreated if only the cellulitis is diagnosed.

Inappropriate prescriptions of antibiotics can lead directly to problems of medical mistreatment and doctor error. Medical researchers have discovered a host of public health problems arising from the incorrect prescription of antibiotics.

A patient has the right to expect that their doctor will make the best diagnosis possible under the circumstances. Failure to acquaint themselves with the basics of current knowledge in the field can lead to the doctors misdiagnosing an issue, which brings with it the possibility of any number of negative health outcomes. Anyone who has had their health impacted by a medical misdiagnosis may choose to file a civil suit against the responsible party or parties and attempt to recover just compensation. An attorney at law may be able to help a client organize their case and present all relevant evidence in a format acceptable to the court. The attorney will also be able to provide legal representation for their client if a civil case goes to trial.
