Common Types of Pediatric Malpractice
Your pediatrician took on an enormous responsibility when accepting the duty to care for your child, and can potentially be held accountable for any type of negligence or incompetence. This includes failure to diagnoseconditions such as appendicitis, meningitis and other bacterial infections, as these can easily run out of control and become difficult to effectively treat. It is similarly possible to file a claim for failure to diagnose cancer in your child, for medication errors including wrong prescription or medication overdose, and for surgical errorswhich result in post-operative infections or injury to internal organs. We also represent families whose children have suffered birth injuries such as Erb's palsy or cerebral palsy, in addition to wrongful death claims for the tragic loss of a child.
