Pediatric Meningitis in Hawaii

Was your child diagnosed with pediatric meningitis?

Pediatric meningitis is a leading cause of childhood mortality and lifelong medical problems for children. Pediatric meningitis is a Central Nervous System (CNS) infection that can cause catastrophic injuries if not diagnosed and treated properly. Progression of the illness can lead to seizures and other long-term health problems. While s ome children infected with meningitis may exhibit no symptoms, there are some clinical signs of infection that medical providers can use to make the diagnosis.

These symptoms include:

  • High-pitched crying
  • Arching the back
  • Staring
  • Lethargy
  • 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. 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 suffers from pediatric meningitis, contact a Hawaii personal injury lawyer from Bostwick & Peterson LLP for legal advice. We are a top-rated personal injury firm, and will review your case to determine if you qualify for monetary damages.
