Ensuring Children Get Quality Medical Care

Nothing is more devastating to a parent than to have a child die or suffer a serious injury — particularly when the death or injury was preventable. While not every pediatric injury or death is caused by malpractice, doctors may fail to diagnose a child's symptoms, misdiagnose, delay diagnoses or make other critical errors. Pediatric malpractice can cause severe damage at an early age and can have devastating consequences.

Some tragic examples of pediatric malpractice cases that our attorneys have handled result from misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of brain injury, meningitis, childhood cancer and hydrocephalus. Others involve birth injury, medication error, mismanaged infection and failure to diagnose an illness or injury. When a medical professional's carelessness or negligence harms your child, a pediatric medical malpractice attorney can help.

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

Our lawyers at Donovan O'Connor & Dodig, LLP, will help you find the answers you need by examining medical records, talking to witnesses and consulting medical experts. Often, a child will have to cope with the complications of malpractice for the rest of his or her life, and medical negligence laws allow victims of pediatric malpractice to seek compensation for their damages, including:

  • Medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Treatment associated with the injury such as additional surgery, rehabilitation, physical therapy or long-term medical care

Our attorneys are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our clients. We bring decades of experience to the table when fighting for parents of children involved in pediatric malpractice cases.
