Patients want and deserve quality medical care and treatment, but far too often mistakes happen. When catastrophic medical error occurs, it is important that victims or their family members pursue justice. Unfortunately, many victims will struggle financially during this time as the insurance company obligated to pay damages on behalf of those they insure will deny, delay, and defend the claim. As a result, many injured victims will seek pre-settlement funding as an appropriate financial lifeline.
A St. Louis family was recently awarded $10.8 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit surrounding the 2011 death of a 34-year-old woman soon after a “routine catheterization” procedure. They were not awarded any punitive damages.
The suit claimed that during surgery, the tip of the catheter disrupted the inner lining of one of the coronary arteries, dissecting it. The inner lining collapsed cutting off the blood supply to the woman’s heart. She was eventually taken in for surgery, but not until 50 minutes later at which time the damage had been done. The woman died, leaving behind a husband and three small children. The defendant plans to appeal.
An appeal is no surprise; hospitals and medical professionals will do what is in their power to shirk responsibility for their actions. In the meantime, this family may be facing financial hardship. If confronted with the potential loss of a home or other serious financial hardship, there may be no other alternative if than pre-settlement lawsuit funding. Applying for pre-settlement funding will take less than five minutes. Once supported with adequate file documentation, the case is review and if approved, funds can be available in as little as 24 hours. The family can pay outstanding bills and no matter how long the case takes to settle, payback is deferred until resolution. A lawsuit cash advance from Lawsuit Financial is based solely on the merits of the case. It is also provided on a non-recourse basis meaning that repayment is only made once the case successfully settles. If this family loses the appeal, the cash advance would be completely waived.
