As the parent of a child impacted by Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP), you are likely consumed with understanding the causes, treatments and long-term outlook for babies rendered blind or severely sight-impaired by ROP. You may also be rightfully concerned with how your family will cope with the financial aspect of raising a child with special needs. What many parents don’t realize is that medical negligence may have caused their child’s vision problems and that compensation may be recovered to alleviate some of the future financial challenges their child will face. At Freidin Brown, P.A., we are experts at identifying when medical malpractice has caused a lifelong injury to a child, as well as recovering much-needed compensation to deal with the challenges your child will face and obtain the best medical outcome and quality of life your child can achieve.
ROP and Medical Malpractice
ROP is a condition that occurs in certain premature, low-birth babies where the blood vessels in the eye do not grow as they should. The consequence of ROP is severely-limited sight vision or blindness. ROP requires proper identification of risk by a pediatrician or neonatologist, and it requires frequent proper monitoring by an ophthalmologist with training on ROP. The tragic effects of retinal scarring, retinal detachment or blindness do not have to occur with proper diagnosis, monitoring and medical care. When misdiagnosis or other mistakes cause serious injuries that could have been prevented, the medical malpractice and birth injury lawyers at Freidin Brown, P.A. can help.
