Did Your Child's Doctor Provide Adequate Care and Attention?

Pediatricians, like all other doctors, can be held accountable when they fail to follow the standards of their profession and children get injured as a result of their medical negligence. The following are some of the major types of pediatric malpractice:

  • Failure to diagnose: If your child has been harmed because your pediatrician misdiagnosed or delayed diagnosing him or her with a major illness such as meningitis, pneumonia, asthma or appendicitis, you may have a medical malpractice claim.
  • Medication errors: The level of medication that is appropriate for a child depends in part on that child's age, weight and related factors. If your child has been harmed due to improper medication, it may be possible to hold your pediatrician accountable.
  • Age-inappropriate treatment: Pediatricians have a responsibility to assess whether treatments that they recommend or perform are appropriate based on age. Recommending an inappropriate treatment may amount to pediatric malpractice.

If you believe your child has been harmed as a result of pediatric malpractice, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your potential claim. Our attorneys and nurses have the experience to build your child's case with the help of cutting-edge technology and expert testimony

We handle all medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee basis, so we will not charge you any fees unless we are successful at helping you obtain compensation for your child.
