A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in pediatrics, a branch of medicine concerned with the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents.  The primary focus of pediatricians is to practice preventive health care, including the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases.  When a pediatrician's level of medical care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts serious injury or death to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred. Unfortunately, even the best pediatricians can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious medical malpractice or wrongful death cases.

Pediatrician malpractice and negligence may include:

  • Delay in Diagnosis or Diagnostic Errors;
  • Failure to Document Clinical Findings;
  • Failure to Document Carefully;
  • Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Errors and Mistakes;
  • Delay in Referring Patient to Specialists;
  • Medication Error;
  • Failure to Supervise Residents and Nurses;
  • Improper Performance;
  • Standard of Care Violations;
  • Failure to Treat Sickness, Illnesses or Disease after Diagnosis;
  • Failure to Schedule or Provide Vaccinations;
  • Failure to Properly Conduct a Routine Infant or Child Health Examination;
  • Misdiagnosis of meningitis, appendicitis, pneumonia, fractures, genital disorders, and other illnesses or diseases.
