A California family was recently awarded more than $36 million in a personal injury lawsuit.

In October 2012, a then six-year-old girl was struck by a car in the middle of the street while she was attempting to catch the school bus. She was in the care of an adult neighbor at the time. The child flew 70 feet into the air, before landing on the pavement. As a result of the accident, the little girl suffered serious injuries including fractures to her neck, pelvis, arm, and leg. She went into cardiac arrest several times and was in a coma for three months. Due to a permanent traumatic brain injury, the child requires around-the-clock care by a licensed vocational nurse (LVN), for the rest of her life. The settlement will go into a trust for her medical care.

The lawsuit alleged that the company providing transportation services failed to report and prevent mid-street crossings, which is a violation of their own policies and procedures. Under the system, students who violate the rules get a verbal warning and then a written warning. Discipline can eventually include losing school bus privileges.

Medical malpractice cases are hard fought, difficult cases that can take years to resolve. If victims require litigation funding, it is important to know that Lawsuit Financial Corporation is one of the few legal funding companies that provide capped “lawsuit loans”. Victims who use lawsuit financing services need to consider this important factor when seeking funding on a piece of litigation that could take several years to settle.

A Louisiana family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a doctor and healthcare clinic alleging medical malpractice led to the death of their loved one.

According to the claim, the patient underwent a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy on July 5, 2012. A drain was inserted at the surgery site to help with draining bodily fluids. The drain was removed the following day and the patient was released from the clinic. He was readmitted on the 7th of July, with complaints of nausea and pain. Subsequently, he underwent an emergency exploratory laparotomy and was sent to ICU when hemorrhaging was found. The man lost consciousness and experienced cardiopulmonary failure two days later. He was pronounced dead that evening, according to the lawsuit.
