The parents of a child that was exposed to aspergillus mold during a surgical procedure at Seattle Children’s Hospital earlier this year have retained Davis Law Group.
The child developed and has been treated for pediatric invasive aspergillus infection.
The parents will not be making any public statements at this time. The identity of the family will not be released due to privacy concerns.
Recently Seattle Children’s Hospital sent a letter to more than 3,000 families warning that their children may have been exposed to the dangerous mold. Earlier this week four of the hospital’s operating rooms were closed after aspergillus was detected over the weekend.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, aspergillus is a relatively common mold that most people breathe without getting sick but that can pose a very serious health risk to those with weakened immune systems.
Davis Law Group has managed other cases of negligence and medical malpractice at Seattle Children's Hospital. Attorneys are aware of at least two other confirmed aspergillus infections. One infection was fatal and another resulted in serious, permanent injuries.
Davis Law Group is asking that anyone who may wish to share information that can assist the investigation into aspergillus mold at Seattle Children’s to please contact Davis Law Group at 206-727-4000 or use our confidential tip submission form.
