“If we don’t stand up for children, then we don’t stand for much.” — Marian Wright Edelman
As members of a law firm with a focus on medical malpractice, the attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder PC, are dedicated to standing up for the rights of children who have suffered due to pediatric malpractice.
Was Your Child Harmed By Pediatric Malpractice?
If your son or daughter was seriously injured because of the negligence of a pediatrician, family doctor or other health care professional, from a nurse to a psychologist, we will aggressively pursue maximum compensation for the full extent of the damages.
Our law firm has won record-setting verdicts and settlements for clients in birth injury cases. We also represent clients whose infants were injured after labor and delivery. Was your child injured because of negligent neonatal care in the hospital nursery or neonatal intensive care unit? Did the pediatrician fail to diagnose and properly treat a serious medical condition? We may be able to help.
Birth to Three System and Filing Deadlines
If your child is involved in Connecticut’s Birth to Three system for children with developmental or physical challenges, it would be wise to contact an attorney to discuss whether medical malpractice of any kind contributed to your child’s condition. There is no cost or risk to find out.
Strict deadlines apply in birth injury and pediatric malpractice claims. If you do not file a lawsuit within two years of the injury, you may give up your right to take legal action against those responsible for harming your child. The lawsuit can always be dropped later on, but you only have a limited time to file a claim for damages.
Negligent Diagnosis and Treatment of Injury and Disease
At any age, children can suffer the same types of malpractice as adults, including surgical malpractice, failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of cancer or other serious conditions. Other hazards are the failure to properly treat childhood illnesses and injuries ranging from child burn injuries and car accident injuries to sports injuries such as concussions.

From offices in Bridgeport, Danbury and New Haven, Connecticut, our medical malpractice lawyers represent clients throughout the state.
