Medical malpractice cases are hard fought, difficult cases that can take years to resolve. If victims require litigation funding, it is important to know that Lawsuit Financial Corporation is one of the few legal funding companies that provide capped “lawsuit loans”. Victims who use lawsuit financing services need to consider this important factor when seeking funding on a piece of litigation that could take several years to settle.
A Louisiana family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a doctor and healthcare clinic alleging medical malpractice led to the death of their loved one.
According to the claim, the patient underwent a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy on July 5, 2012. A drain was inserted at the surgery site to help with draining bodily fluids. The drain was removed the following day and the patient was released from the clinic. He was readmitted on the 7th of July, with complaints of nausea and pain. Subsequently, he underwent an emergency exploratory laparotomy and was sent to ICU when hemorrhaging was found. The man lost consciousness and experienced cardiopulmonary failure two days later. He was pronounced dead that evening, according to the lawsuit.
