Woman Files Lawsuit Alleging Failure to Diagnose and Treat Tumor led to her Son’s Disabilities

A woman filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging negligence in the treatment of her son. She contends that a negligent medical procedure resulted in permanent injuries to her son.

According to the complaint, in January 2015, the child was taken to the medical facility and diagnosed with having a large cystic neoplasm. After a required CT scan, the suit says, an attempt to remove a tooth was not successful due to an extensive rush of blood. The child was transferred to a local children’s hospital to undergo another surgery. There he sustained respiratory failure following trauma and surgery, an acute ischemic left a middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke and bleeding, according to the claim. The child was left with aphasia and right hemiparesis, the suit says.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendants failed to properly and adequately evaluate the cyst or tumor, leading to permanent and severe neurological disability. As a result, she suffered loss of earning capacity, medical expenses and mental anguish.

The plaintiff seeks a trial by jury and an undisclosed amount compensatory and punitive damages.

Trying to make ends meet with medical bills and ordinary household expenses couples with loss of income can be financially devastating. Rather than rack up more debt or struggle until a settlement, litigation funding would be a viable option for this plaintiff.

Litigation funding is often the answer to difficult situations where a plaintiff is without sufficient funds to handle unexpected bills and expenses. Without this option, desperate plaintiffs are often forced to settlements too soon, for too little. With litigation funding, a plaintiff can remain in a case longer in order to pursue a larger settlement.
