Pediatric Malpractice Attorneys Serving the Portland-Vancouver and SW Washington Area

If you’re searching for experienced pediatric malpractice attorneys, look no further than Jane Clark Legal. With over 35 years of expertise, our medical malpractice attorneys specialize in handling cases involving children who have been injured due to medical negligence. Pediatric medical malpractice occurs when healthcare professionals providing medical care to children violate the standard of care, resulting in harm or even death to a child. Our team understands the critical importance of close attention to the symptoms and medical history of child patients, as children may have difficulty communicating their condition, and parents or loved ones may not be aware of potential issues.

Compassionate Advocates for Child Victims: Pediatric Malpractice Lawyers

Here are some examples of pediatric medical malpractice cases successfully handled by our attorneys:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis: Our attorneys have dealt with cases where pediatricians failed to diagnose or misdiagnosed serious conditions in children, such as meningitis, appendicitis, bacterial pneumonia, sudden hearing loss, or congenital heart defects. Delayed diagnosis can lead to delayed treatment and worsened outcomes.
  • Medication errors: We have expertise in cases involving pediatric medical malpractice related to errors in prescribing or administering medications. These errors include incorrect dosages, failure to identify drug interactions, or administering the wrong medication. Such mistakes can result in adverse reactions, overdoses, complications, or even death.
  • Surgical errors: Our attorneys have successfully handled cases where mistakes occurred during pediatric surgeries, such as incorrect incisions, damage to surrounding anatomy, or improper suturing. Examples include errors during procedures like tonsillectomy, appendectomy, or hernia repair, which can cause complications and harm to the child.
  • Anesthesia complications: Administering anesthesia to children requires special care, and our attorneys have expertise in cases where errors in medication dosages, improper monitoring during surgery, or failure to address anesthesia-related complications led to pediatric medical malpractice.
  • Failure to obtain informed consent: We understand the rights of parents or guardians to be fully informed about the risks and benefits of medical procedures or treatments for their child. Our attorneys have dealt with cases where healthcare professionals failed to provide accurate information or obtain proper consent before performing procedures or administering treatments, resulting in pediatric medical malpractice.
