A child neurologist is a medical doctor with special expertise in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, muscles and nerves in children.  Child neurologists are skilled in understanding medical disorders that afflict children and their corresponding special needs, including that of the family.  When a child neurologist's level of care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts injury or death to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred.  Unfortunately, even the best child neurologists can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or wrongful death.
