Pediatric Meningitis

Pediatric Meningitis & Malpractice in San Francisco

Call (888) 831-8448 If Medical Malpractice Led to a Case of Pediatric Meningitis in California

Despite medical advances, pediatric meningitis is still a leading cause of mortality and other lifelong medical problems for children. A Central Nervous System (CNS) infection, meningitis can cause devastating damage if not identified early and then treated immediately. Although many children infected with meningitis exhibit no symptoms, there are some signs of the infection that medical providers can use to assist in diagnosis. These symptoms include high-pitched crying, arching the back, staring, lethargy, loss of appetite and pale, blotchy skin.

Impact of Malpractice

Medical providers, especially pediatricians, are trained to diagnose and treat pediatric meningitis, and it is their responsibility to act quickly. When a medical professional fails to perform the necessary tests and does not act in a way that other medical professionals would act with the same information, he or she may be guilty of medical malpractice. Our legal team may be able to help in such cases. Please contact our firm today if you believe that you or your child was not properly diagnosed with and treated for pediatric meningitis.

A failure to diagnose any of these symptoms could lead to permanent disabilities, and should be addressed in a medical malpractice claim. If your child has been a victim of pediatric meningitis and there was a failure to diagnose or treat the illness properly, do not hesitate to retain the services of a knowledgeable attorney for experienced legal representation.
