Medical Malpractice: Doctors' Failure to Evaluate Child Results in Death
Our clients' 10 month old son died 19 days after he had surgery to repair his duodenum. The baby died of an undiagnosed small bowel obstruction. From the time of his admission to the time of his death, no doctor ordered any imaging or x-rays. We settled this case for a confidential amount alleging that the physicians fell below the standard of care because they failed to look into the baby's medical history and properly communicate with the hospital nurses.
