Pediatric Meningitis

Pediatric Meningitis Lawyer in Los Angeles

Pediatric Meningitis Malpractice Lawsuits

If your child has suffered harm due to pediatric meningitis, you may have the right to seek justice from health care providers that have failed to diagnose or adequately treat the condition. Pediatric meningitis is a leading cause of death in young children, and medical professions who care for kids are trained to meet accepted standards when evaluating for and identifying potential meningitis.

At Boswick & Peterson, LLP, our Los Angeles pediatric meningitis attorneys can review your case and help your family explore options for taking legal action. Our firm is a nationally respected trial practice with a proven record of success:

  • We’ve broken the record for largest malpractice recovery in CA twice since 2018.
  • Record-setting birth and neonatal injury recoveries in multiple states.
  • Over $1 billion in compensation recovered.
  • Attorney James Bostwick is a Certified Medical Malpractice specialist.

Discuss your rights for bringing a malpractice claim over pediatric meningitis during a FREE consultation. We charge families no up-front fees and don’t collect a fee unless we win.

Diagnosing and Treating Pediatric Meningitis

If pediatric meningitis is not diagnosed quickly, children can suffer nerve damage and brain injuries 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 an experienced lawyer to investigate what happened and whether your provider deviated from the accepted standard of care.

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.
