Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers frequently represent children in cases against negligent doctors, clinics, and hospitals. One type of case is the failure to properly treat and diagnose the condition of childhood asthma.
Chronic Bronchitis can be a very serious condition that affects children. Chronic bronchitis is persistent or repeated episodes of bronchitis. When bronchitis lasts three months or more, it is termed chronic bronchitis. Chronic bronchitis is also apparent when a child has bronchitis for most of the days in a three month period for two years in a row and when other lung diseases or conditions have been excluded.
Symptoms of Chronic Bronchitis
Vomiting or spitting out mucus
Frequent respiratory infections
Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, or constriction of the breathing tubes
Lips or skin turning blue
Swelling of feet and other extremities
Because of the severe health consequences, it is imperative that a doctor recognize and treat chronic bronchitis promptly and properly. There are a number of tests that can be performed to recognize chronic bronchitis, and your pediatrician or specialist should be familiar with them. In addition, while there are a number of causes of chronic bronchitis, the symptoms are fairly easy to recognize.
If your child is further injured because a doctor failed to test for, diagnose, or treat chronic bronchitis, you may have a valid claim for medical malpractice. You should contact us immediately to see if you have a case.
