A New Orleans woman is seeking damages, claiming that a dentist caused her physical pain.
A medical malpractice lawsuit filed last month states that the plaintiff was scheduled to have an apicoectomy (root end surgery). During surgery, the plaintiff alleges that the doctor injured her nasal cavity which resulted in both physical pain and financial stress. She seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.
When a victim of medical negligence, many people find that they simply do not have the financial assets needed to weather the storm without help. This is when litigation funding may be helpful. It is clearly something to consider if you find yourself asking your attorney to accept an inadequate settlement offer just because of serious financial need.
