Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)

Low blood sugar in a newborn baby can cause brain damage if the doctor does not act quickly.

Failure to diagnose or treat hypoglycemia/low blood sugar in a newborn

Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in newborn babies is a life-threatening emergency. Early treatment can prevent serious complications but military pediatric doctors and nurses sometimes miss the early signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia in infants. It is typically a problem in babies whose mothers had diabetes during pregnancy, but can happen even in babies whose mothers did not have diabetes.  Our lawyers have successfully handled  several cases involving a delay in treating hypoglycemia in newborns resulting in brain damage and seizures.

If your child suffered an injury from hypoglycemia due to the negligence of an Army, Air Force, Navy doctor or hospital, our lawyers can help you get the compensation you need to care for your child. Please contact us today for a free, confidential, no risk consultation from an experienced military malpractice attorney.
