Children and Medical Malpractice

The injury or death of a child is widely considered especially tragic. A life ending too soon is hard for most people to conceive of. And when the serious harm death could have been prevented, those heart-rending feelings are all the stronger. This is the case when a child is the victim of medical malpractice.

Children have many unique aspects to their bodies and their developments. They are much smaller, so even the smallest change in medication can injure them. Their size also makes them very fragile, so an invasive procedure that an adult could survive may be too much for a child’s body to endure.

Whether or not to do a certain procedure or prescribe a certain amount of medicine is up to a doctor; if that doctor is not well studied in the differences between children and adults, the child could become a victim of medical malpractice. If your child has been harmed by a negligent doctor, contact the Sheboygan medical malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at (920) 459-8000.

Common Forms of Medical Malpractice in Children

Children can be affected by any wrong call by a negligent doctor, but they are routinely the victims of:

  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Improper treatment
  • Delayed diagnosis

All children deserve to have a bright future, their doctor’s should not be the reason they are denied this.
