Pediatric Meningitis Lawyer in Hawaii
Medical Malpractice Lawsuits for Mismanaged Pediatric Meningitis
Pediatric meningitis is a Central Nervous System (CNS) infection that can cause catastrophic injuries if not diagnosed and treated properly. It is a leading cause of childhood mortality and lifelong medical problems for children, such as seizures, brain damage, hearing loss, and disability.
While some children with meningitis may exhibit no symptoms, there are clinical signs of infection that medical providers can use to make the diagnosis.
These symptoms include:
- High-pitched crying
- Arching the back
- Loss of appetite
- Pale, blotchy skin
Health care providers, particularly pediatricians, are trained to diagnose and treat pediatric meningitis, and it is their responsibility to take action quickly when there are signs and symptoms that would indicate such a diagnosis.
A health care provider who fails to comply with the appropriate standards of care when diagnosing and treating this serious illness may be liable for medical malpractice.
If your child was harmed because a provider failed to diagnose, failed to treat, or otherwise mismanaged pediatric meningitis, contact Bostwick & Peterson LLP for a consultation. We are a top-rated medical malpractice firm. Our lawyers can review your case to determine if you are entitled to damages.
