Minnesota Pediatrician Negligence Attorney

When the doctor fails to diagnose a child’s illness or disability

Any pediatric misdiagnosis can be serious and cause lifelong illness or disability. When you become aware of a misdiagnosis that caused serious harm, discuss the situation with a pediatric error lawyer.

Birth injuries caused by obstetrician and pediatrician errors can have severe, lifelong effects including paralysis, brain damage, and, in some cases, wrongful death. Children are especially susceptible to medical mistakes, particularly immediately after birth. Their underdeveloped organs and systems can't withstand some errors like inappropriate medications the way an adult might be able to, so the potential for damage due to a mistake is much higher and can have much more far-reaching effects, causing problems for the victim's entire life.

Pediatric mistakes with serious consequences include:

  • Infections contracted while in the hospital
  • Prescriptions of improper medications or improper doses
  • Catheter injuries
  • IV errors
  • Misdiagnosis, delay in diagnosis and mistreatment of meningitis, PKU (phenylketonuria), congenital hip dislocation, Down syndrome
  • Failure to diagnose cancer

If a doctor’s mistake injured your child, talk to a pediatric negligence lawyer.

Pediatric mistakes can cause a lifetime of illness and disability. You and your child deserve answers and justice, including adequate compensation to deal with the effects of a life–long problem.
