Asthma/Respiratory Illness

Asthma may occur in one life anywhere childhood to adulthood. Improper treatment of asthma could include the failure of the physician to place the patient on an emergency inhaler or that the patient is being treated by an allergist and not a pulmonary specialist, failure to properly diagnose the asthma. Other respiratory illnesses include but are not limited to, COPD chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, occupational asthma, reactive airways dysfunction syndrome, pneumonia, and bronchitis. But of course, with all malpractice cases, any claim will depend upon the standard of care that could be reasonably expected.
