Patient Alleges Doctor Failed To Diagnose Infection

A patient has filed a lawsuit against a doctor and orthopaedics center alleging negligence in medical care. According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2014, she sustained physical injuries in connection with a prosthetic knee and related infection. The plaintiff contends that the defendants failed to inform her of risks, failed to properly treat an infection, failed to remove the prosthetic knee in a timely fashion and failed to inform of complications of an infection treatment. She seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

The physical, emotional, and financial impact following a serious infection can be devastating. In addition to significant financial losses due to medical expenses and lost income, many victims are left permanently disabled by chronic pain or limited mobility. If injuries resulting from a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose could have been prevented, the victim may be entitled to compensation. It is important to contact a medical malpractice attorney to determine one’s rights.

The time it takes to complete a medical malpractice claim depends on the complexity and strength of the case. The last thing this woman or any medical malpractice victim needs is to worry about is how to keep up with financial obligations. When plaintiffs are facing mounting bills and few options, litigation funding could be the perfect solution.

Litigation funding can ensure that this woman’s bills are paid until her case reaches a settlement. Funding is not provided against assets, but rather the strength of the case and the potential settlement. That means that there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Once case documentation is reviewed and the strength of the case determined, if approved for a lawsuit cash advance, the money can be available within 24 – 48 hours. The cash advance is simply repaid once the case successfully settles. If she loses the case, Lawsuit Financial would not require repayment. That is because we assume all the risks.

Don’t let money problems or a financial emergency force you and your attorney to settle your medical negligence case for less than you deserve when Lawsuit Financial may have the mechanism you need to pay your bills, keep your credit standing, and fight for your rights.
