If you suspect that your child has been the victim of a medical malpractice and the hospital failed to diagnose the cause of your child’s pediatric fever, you do have legal rights and may be able to sue the hospital for their negligence. The first step you should take when pursuing a lawsuit against the hospital, is contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can look into the case and determine whether or not there is a basis for a lawsuit.
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our award winning lawyers will obtain and review all of your child’s medical records and discuss the case with a board certified medical expert who will advise us whether there is basis for a lawsuit. We have significant experience in representing child injury victims and handle serious medical malpractice cases every day.
Once determined that there is basis for lawsuit, a claim will be filed against the hospital. The negligent hospital and doctor will most likely have a top rated legal team on their side, so it is important that you also have an attorney by your side, filing your claim and aiding you through every step of the legal process.
Once the lawsuit is filed, both sides engage in the legal process called “discovery,” where each side is allowed to investigate what it is the other side is going to say at trial. After discovery is concluded, the parties often attend a mediation or facilitation to get all sides together in an attempt to settle the lawsuit. If the parties cannot agree on a settlement amount, the judge will set a trial date.
