Judgment issued in medical malpractice case

No infant should have to experience negligence at the hands of a medical professional. When a medical professional fails to act properly when proving care to an infant, it can result in the infant suffering harms. Harms suffered due to medical negligence can have lasting impacts on an infant's life. Thus, it is very important for medical professionals to not act negligently when it comes to providing care to infants.

Recently, a judgment was issued in a medical malpractice case from Texas that involved allegations of the above-mentioned type of negligence. The case involved an ophthalmologist who provided care to an infant girl who had been born prematurely.

The girl's family alleged that this doctor acted negligently during the course of providing this care. According to the girl's family, this alleged negligence included failing to examine the girl when he should have and failing to provide the girl with proper treatment.

The girl's family claimed that this alleged negligence resulted in the girl going blind.

A lawsuit was brought by the girl's family in a court in Texas against the ophthalmologist in connection to these allegations. According to the El Paso Times article which reported this story, last week, a court issued a judgment in this case. The judgment was in the family's favor and it granted them a monetary award.

As the allegations that were made in this case underscore, it can be very harmful when medical professionals act negligently during the course of providing care to infants. Thus, one hopes that medical professionals are held accountable when they commit negligence like that which was alleged in this case.
