Attorney Shapiro’s Work with ROP Lawsuits Changes Hospital Policies
Tampa Bay Medical Malpractice Attorney Holding Hospitals Accountable in Retinopathy of Prematurity Lawsuits
It is a sad fact that premature newborns are still suffering the effects of medical malpractice in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). When adequately monitored and treated, ROP does not have to result in preventable baby blindness. However, our medical malpractice lawyer in Florida has witnessed how holding those accountable in a retinopathy of prematurity lawsuit has forced negligent hospitals to improve their procedures for dealing with severely premature newborns.
If your family is dealing with the devastating consequences of a birth injury like preventable blindness in newborns from ROP, give our medical malpractice attorneys a call to schedule a free case review. You and your child have rights; we will uphold them.
There have been changes made in hospitals. I can’t name specific ones because of the confidentiality of settlements, but I actually had a hospital system, a university-based hospital system, ask me if they wouldn’t mind my allowing them to contact our experts directly to help implement a system in place to prevent what happened to the baby that I represented and her family. Because of that, I want to believe that there will never be a blind kid at that university hospital system again.
