Children are especially vulnerable to dangerous infections such as meningitis, encephalitis, lung infections, and ear infections. Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are aware of the danger these infections pose to children. When infections are diagnosed early through blood tests, urine tests, radiology tests, and other means, they are typically easy to treat and cure.

Negligent Treatment of Child Infections
Missing or delaying an infection diagnosis may result in severe medical complications. Caregivers may misdiagnose or mistreat childhood infections by:
- Failing to prescribe antibiotics;
- Prescribing the wrong antibiotic or dosage;
- Allowing hospital errors to occur through unclean conditions;
- Failing to monitor children who are post-operative.
The Becker Law Firm focuses on helping children obtain full and fair compensation for injuries suffered due to the misdiagnosis of infection. In cases involving child infections, we must assess the full extent of the damages the child will face in the short and long term. Because the child may be affected for the rest of his or her life, we must consider ongoing needs in regard to medical treatment, physical therapy, and adaptive equipment.
At The Becker Law Firm, we care about you and your family. Our Ohio child infection attorneys are committed to helping your family secure the just compensation you are owed for your pain and suffering. In many cases, our legal team is able to determine that medical negligence and/or malpractice led to your child’s injuries. When this is the case, we work hard to hold the negligent parties accountable.
