Birth Trauma Brain Damage Result in Large Damage Award

This Illinois case involves a baby who suffered brain injury during his birth. Robert Morales Jr. came into the world in 2001, induced by an injection of Pitocin. Unfortunately, this drug has some nasty side effects, with the major ones being the baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels are reduced.

Apparently, (and the birth trauma medical malpractice case alleged that) the medical professionals failed to notice the baby was in distress and he suffered anoxia and subsequent brain trauma. He was flown to another hospital with a higher level of care, as the first hospital didn’t have the skills to care for critically injured babies with brain injuries. Baby Morales was in hospital for a month. He will require constant care for the rest of his life.

Families that find themselves in circumstances similar to that experienced by the Morales family, may take comfort in knowing that they do not have to face, alone, the nightmare of staggering medical expenses and increased daily expenses caused by an accidental injury suffered by a family member. Lawsuit funding is service that provides interim financial support to litigants with pending personal injury lawsuits. It is easy to apply for legal finance services; one phone call or website visit gets you started. If you are approved for a lawsuit cash advance, you will have funds in your bank account within 24-48 hours. And, if you lose your case, you do not have to pay the money back. This is guaranteed, no-risk lawsuit financing. Now, you can wait patiently, without financial worry, for your case to settle or resolve at trial. A pre-settlement cash advance is fast cash; it is not dependent on your credit or whether or not you have a job.

Don't "throw in the towel" too early and take less than the full value your attorney says your case is worth. Apply for litigation funding, instead.
