Paediatric Claims

We understand how distressing it is when a child is seriously ill and that, in these circumstances families can be thrown into chaos.

Every parent expects their child’s illness, not only to be diagnosed quickly and correctly, but also to be given the appropriate treatment as soon as possible. Sadly, this does not always happen.

Sometimes medical professionals can make errors in diagnosis, treatment and care of a child. Mistakes can include:

  • The length of time it takes to diagnose a child’s illness
  • Administration of incorrect drug dosage
  • Delayed or incorrect treatment
  • Surgical problems
  • Insufficient aftercare

Signs of critical illness can be missed as it is hard for a young child to convey to a doctor where, how and why they feel ill, but delay in diagnosis and treatment could result in permanent illness, injury, disability or even the death of a child.

If your child has suffered as a result of inadequacy or negligence on the part of a doctor or other healthcare professional, our specialist solicitors will offer you support and advice on making a claim against those responsible. We can help arrange rehabilitative treatment, further surgery or other treatment which could help to improve your child’s everyday life.
