The most devastating cases involving failure to treat infection are those that involve newborn children. During childbirth, babies are susceptible to infections. If the mother has an infection, it can easily be passed onto the child.
However, doctors have the knowledge to check for infections such as meningitis. They have the ability to treat mothers for these infections prior to childbirth. Failure to treat infections in these cases is often a clear-cut example of medical malpractice.
Of course, children aren’t the only ones susceptible to infections. We can also address cases of post-surgical infections that are improperly treated. Our attorneys can also handle medical error cases involving antibiotics used to treat infections.
