$11.0 Million for Failure to Diagnose

Settlement for Neonatal blindness injuries to premature triplets after failure to diagnose condition in a timely manner.

This case involved neonatal blindness injuries to premature triplets from retinopathy of prematurity. One child was almost completely blind; one child was almost completely blind in one eye and had partial loss of vision in the other eye; and the third child had some functional diminution of vision, primarily in one eye. Retinopathy of prematurity (what used to be called rebrolentna fibroplasia can be treated if timely diagnosed. It is a common problem in premature infants. We contended that the hospital, neonatologist, and pediatricians failed to properly follow up and screen these children and failed to diagnose the condition in a timely manner. The defendants contended that the mother had been properly warned about the condition and failed to obtain an eye exam in a timely fashion after the triplets were discharged from the hospital. This confidential settlement is believed to be the largest of its type in the history of the state of occurrence.
