Pediatric Negligence Attorney

We put your family’s best interests first

After the birth of a healthy child, many parents believe their worries are over. But as difficult and dangerous as the birth process can be, being safely born is no guarantee of continued good health. In fact, many young children suffer serious, permanent injuries every year.

What causes such harm? In many cases, it’s negligence. Specifically, negligent actions committed by pediatricians, nurses, surgeons or other hospital staff can cause serious injuries to infants and young children.

Knowing what to do in such a situation can be confusing. Even knowing what your rights are as a parent might not be clear. That’s why it’s important to talk to an experienced medical malpractice attorney familiar with such cases.

Common pediatric negligence cases

Some conditions are fairly common in newborns, including jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia. In some cases, these medical issues may be temporary conditions that go away on their own. In others, medical intervention may be required. And medical professionals need to act fast to protect the health and well-being of the child.

Unfortunately, some doctors, nurses or other health care workers don’t pay attention to such warning signs and fail to take immediate action. As a result, untreated medical conditions like jaundice can lead to permanent brain damage.

Sometimes, newborn children require surgical care. Pediatric surgery requires highly skilled surgical teams. Timing is also critical. Waiting a few days or even a few hours or minutes to operate can result in a serious, permanent injury, including brain damage.

We’re here for you when you need us most

Medical professionals often refuse to admit they did anything wrong, especially when it comes to mistakes involving the health of infants or young children. That’s because such injuries can be serious and permanent, resulting in a lifelong physical or mental disability.

There’s also the issue of money. If medical malpractice occurred, the doctor or hospital that harmed your child could be forced to pay your family thousands or even millions of dollars. That’s why many medical professionals refuse to admit malpractice.

We believe people should be held accountable for their actions. If someone caused your child’s injury or failed to properly treat their illness, they should be held accountable for their actions.
