Fatima is a 25-year-old woman who went to the doctor after months of feeling tired all the time. Her doctor listened carefully, ordered blood tests and gave her suggestions that he thought might improve her energy level.

But in the days that followed, the doctor forgot to check her lab tests. As it happened, two months later Fatima was involved in a minor car accident that brought her back to the doctor’s office.
