Filing a Claim or Lawsuit in Pediatric Meningitis Cases in L.A.
If your child has suffered severe damage from pediatric meningitis or in cases in which a child lost their lives, you may have the right to seek justice if the physician failed to diagnose the disease. This terrible illness continues to be one of the leading causes of death in young children, and all medical professionals are trained to identify the specific symptoms that accompany the disease.
If the disease is not diagnosed quickly, nerve damage can take place leading to long term physical or mental disabilities, or the tragic loss of life. If your child was ill and your doctor or pediatrician failed to recognize that they were suffering from this debilitating disease, it is important that you contact a Los Angeles medical malpractice lawyer from Bostwick & Peterson LLP. We know how difficult and emotional it is for parents facing these tragic consequences, and we can assist you to pursue compensation to care for your child and address their needs, as well as the pain and suffering that is a tragic aspect of any disability.
Los Angeles Medical Malpractice Attorney
These cases are very difficult for all concerned, but the breach of duty of your physician is our concern. We trust medical professionals to use their skills, and nothing is more important to us than the health and wellbeing of our children. When the medical professional failed to diagnose, or did not test your child for pediatric meningitis, they have failed in their duty to your child, and to you.
The damage to your child could be extensive, and they may need extensive care and ongoing treatment, in some cases for the remainder of their lives. Our goal is to pursue the maximum possible compensation so that your family has the opportunity to give your child the best quality of life possible, and the ability to seek out new treatments as they become available.
