What is Paediatric / a paediatrician?
Paediatric is the branch of medicine for dealing with the health and medical care of all children from birth to the age of 18. A paediatrician is a child’s physician and will not only provide medical care for a child who is acutely or chronically ill but also preventive health services for healthy children.
Paediatrician’s have a big responsibility and will help with:
- Genetic and congenital conditions
- Organ diseases and dysfunctions
Examples of paediatric medical negligence:
- Misdiagnosis and delays in diagnosis
- Problems related to surgery
- Drug errors
- Medical errors relating to meningitis and sickle-cell disease
- Inappropriate or insufficient epilepsy care
- Birth injury
- Anaesthetic care
- Expertise and results for the victims of medical mistakes
Making a claim
If you believe that negligence has caused your baby to suffer any of the examples above, then you may be entitled to make a claim.
You will need to be able to prove that the injury or error happened due to negligence from the health professional for your claim to be successful. If you’re unsure about where to start, you can book an initial consultation with one of our medical negligence lawyers who will talk you through whether you have a claim and if you do, the best steps to move forward.
One of our cases
We were instructed by a lady who’s child contracted meningitis. Unfortunately, the child was not treated with intravenous antibiotics when initially diagnosed and went on to develop a severe neurological condition requiring ongoing treatment. We got answers for our client. We instructed medical experts who confirmed that if the child had received the correct care, it would have cured her meningitis and she wouldn’t have suffered any further complications.
No Win No Fee
Youngs Law offer no win, no fee for all of our medical negligence claims, so if you don’t win your case and receive compensation, you don’t pay us a penny. We will also wait for any fee to be paid to us when you receive you compensation and not upon winning you case.
