Defendants in a pediatric malpractice lawsuit might include family physicians, pediatricians, surgeons, radiologists or hospitals. We work with doctors from each relevant specialty to see whether your child's condition and the medical records indicate the likelihood of medical malpractice. An important element of this analysis is to establish a causal connection between the treating physician's mistake and the injury to your child.
