Children and Medical Malpractice
Children need special attention in most aspects of their lives. No one would think of, for instance, leaving a child in a house to fend for him or herself. The same logic should also be applied to the idea treating a child medically in the same manner you would treat an adult. But the sobering truth is that some doctors and other medical professionals are not fully aware of the many unique aspects of a child’s body. In some cases, dangerous mistakes are made as a result.
No one deserves to be the victim of medical malpractice, least of all an innocent child. If you have a child that has been hurt by a negligent doctor, the experienced Champaign medical malpractice lawyers Spiros Law, P.C. may be able to help. Contact us today at (217) 328-2828.
Types of Medical Malpractice Affecting Children
Several conditions can present differently in a child than an adult. This is partially due to a child’s reduced ability to communicate feelings and symptoms, and partially due to physiological differences between adults’ and children’s bodies. Some common types of medical malpractice that children may fall victim to are:
- Medical misdiagnosis
- Delayed diagnosis
- Improper treatment
Medical malpractice should not be tolerated in any form; but when it comes to children, doctors should be all the more prepared.
