Harm From Negligent Care in Pediatrics
When a pediatrician fails to see obvious signs of illness, pursues a wrong course of treatment or ignores symptoms that warrant further investigation, it can often result in greater injury to the child. Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals may be held accountable for the injuries caused by their negligent errors.
The lawyers at Pacific Medical Law provide experienced representation for children who have suffered injuries through pediatric malpractice. We provide comprehensive legal assistance and personal attention to our clients who often have to deal with the additional physical, emotional and financial burdens of these injuries.
