Wrongful Death Lawsuits Resulting from Medical Negligence Benefit from Litigation Funding

All patients have the right to receive competent care regardless of the kind of healthcare received – minor, complex, required, or elective procedures. Therefore, even if you elect to undergo medical treatment that is not medically “necessary”, you can still file a lawsuit if you believe a healthcare professional committed medical negligence. Once a lawsuit is filed, a plaintiff may apply for litigation funding to help with their financial situation.

A wrongful death lawsuit against the Christus Spohn Health System Corporation, Christus Spohn Hospital, Corpus Christi-Shoreline Center for Plastic Surgery, and Robert A. Fernandez, M.D. alleges medical negligence in the care of a woman who underwent elective plastic surgery. The suit claims that within two hours of surgery, the woman was given an excessive amount of the pain medication, Dilaudid, causing her death. According to the suit, the patient was administered more than three and a half times the maximum dosage, and eighteen times the recommended usual dosage recommended by the FDA, as well as 12.5 mg of Phenergan, a drug that could have had a negative effect when combined with Dilaidid. The family is seeking undisclosed damages.

Moving forward after the death of a loved one is emotionally and often times, financially draining especially as a result of medical negligence. Proving medical malpractice is a complex process; given the nature of this situation, it may be a long time before the case goes to court and/or culminates in a settlement or award. No one has limitless financial strength; injury victims and/or surviving family members may qualify for litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance to help pay important bills, such as medical expenses, mortgage payments and other important daily expenses. Litigation funding allows plaintiffs the ability to wait for a fair settlement without the financial pressure to settle too early for too little.
