Your Child Has Lost Their Eyesight, What Can You Do for Them?

It is heartbreaking for any parent if their child has to experience a disability, especially at a young age. No parent ever wants to experience this and no child deserves to go through that. However, the unfortunate reality is that horrible things like this do happen, and that no one is prepared for them. Of course no one wants to think about anything like that happening to their child. Thankfully information can be easily available to help everyone in the family progress in a healthy manner. The best interest of the child should always be the most important thing.
Was It Negligence?
It is always a concern when a mother has to give birth to her baby prematurely; it is dangerous for her and the baby. Thankfully this is nothing new to the medical field and to the medical practitioners. When a child is born prematurely, they do run the risk of developing Retinopathy of Prematurity, but the doctors and nurses know the correct procedures to take to prevent the child from developing these risks, which do result in blindness. If your child has developed blindness after being born prematurely, this is likely due to medical negligence.
Making a Case
Many people might believe that there is no case when there might be and vice versa. That is why any case against medical negligence is reviewed by experts so that they can assess the information and decide if the case is viable. Before this happens, one will need to gather as much information as possible. It is your right as a South African citizen to have access to your medical information. Making a case against medical negligence, it will be a long and draining process and everyone needs to be prepared for it.
