It’s important to realize that children may not be aware of a particular illness or affliction when it arises. When they do realize something is wrong, they may not be able to effectively describe their symptoms. Parents rely on the expertise and knowledge of pediatricians to understand conditions, diagnose and properly treat them. When they fail to recognize these symptoms, do not order proper tests or dismiss a reasonable parental concern, what may have been an easily treatable condition can develop into a serious ailment or even a lifelong disability.

If you are concerned that a physician was negligent in diagnosis, treatment or surgery, it is important to reach out to a  pediatric medical malpractice lawyer to understand your rights.

Medical Malpractice Claims For A Child

We are prepared to bring the multimillion-dollar award-winning approach that has been honed in more than 30 years of practice to help you obtain the compensation you deserve if your child has been injured as a result of pediatric medical malpractice, including:

  • Dismissing meningitis or other life-threatening illness as “a cold” or “the flu”
  • Failure to diagnose leukemia or other cancer
  • Failure to diagnose correctable heart defects
  • Failure to diagnose juvenile diabetes or kidney disease
  • Prescription medication errors
  • Permanent disability from improperly setting a broken bone
  • Surgery errors resulting in organ damage or brain damage

It is important to realize that medical malpractice is case-specific. We are able to reach out to pediatric experts and analyze the medical records to determine if a medical professional failed to order appropriate tests, failed to read lab reports or X-rays, or deviated from care standards.
