Family Files Lawsuit Accusing Hospital of Wrongful Death

Few events in anyone’s life are as catastrophic as losing of a loved one, especially a sudden, unexpected loss caused by the actions or negligence of someone else. If someone else’s negligent behavior caused your loved one’s death, you have an obligation to protect the legal rights of the deceased. However, compensation is not automatic; wrongful death lawsuits usually involve a significant amount of money and are hard fought by defense-insurance interests. Thus, wrongful death claims can be long and drawn-out, taking months, even years, for lawsuits to resolve. For plaintiffs faced with financial issues, lawsuit funding may be a solution.

A family recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging that their loved on died in the emergency room of a Chicago hospital because he did not receive immediate medical care.

According to the complaint, the man went to the ER on April 21, 2015, for emergency medical treatment for a sickle cell or vaso-occlusive crisis. The plaintiff alleges that due to hospital negligence, their loved one remained in the emergency room without immediate medical attention, resulting in his death the following day.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount of more than $50,000.

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; during the course of the litigation process, the ability to pay even the day-to-day living expenses may become an issue, one that could drastically affect how the case progresses. This family may qualify for lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse lawsuit cash advance that can allow the family to wait for a fair and equitable verdict in their case, without the financial pressure to settle too early for too little.
