Florida Subconjunctival Hemorrhage Attorney
Trust Our Skilled Birth Injury Lawyers with Your Case
Many people experience subconjunctival hemorrhages throughout their lifetimes.
It describes a medical condition that happens when the small blood vessels
located just beneath the eye rupture. Although it can occur at any age,
it usually happens to newborns when trauma happens during a stressful
delivery. Difficult labor can put too much pressure on the infant during
contracts, and doctors can apply inappropriate pressure and force on a
baby during birth. Forceps and vacuum-extraction tools can cause this
type of injury.
If your child was harmed during birth by an incompetent medical professional,
talk to one of our skilled
Florida birth injury attorneys as soon as possible.

Consequences of Subconjunctival Hemorrhage
Most instances of this type of damage are determined by looking at the
infant’s affected eye. There is usually no treatment, as the condition
usually clears up on its own after a few weeks. Artificial tears may be
recommended to help with itchiness and pain. However, in some cases, the
condition can lead to permanent eye damage. Treatment usually depends
on the severity of the injury.

Sometimes the actions or inactions of medical staff can be an explanation
for burst blood vessels in a newborn’s eyes. If the medical professionals
who assisted in your child’s birth weren’t careful and delicate
enough with the baby during delivery, they could have caused unnecessary
physical trauma and stress. Medical professionals do make mistakes, but
they should be held accountable for gross malpractice. Talk to our experienced
Florida medical malpractice attorneys about your situation, and we can offer skilled recommendations about your
best legal course of action.
