Neglected Mental Patient Dies
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) May 30, 2010 - This medical malpractice lawsuit involves an accusation of inadequate treatment for a mental patient.
In this case, the mother of the deceased filed a notice of action against the Oregon State Hospital. The notice suggests that the hospital did not provide proper or adequate treatment according to his physical and mental health conditions.
“There was a full scale investigation into this case and the investigators found that the hospital did fail to provide the deceased with adequate medical care. It appears that the young man’s caregivers on his ward didn’t properly treat his chronic conditions, didn’t create a useful treatment plan, failed to update his medical chart and did not return the family’s calls in the weeks that led up to his death,” outlined Daren Monroe, Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.
The horrendous thing in this case is that the day the young man died, no one discovered he had passed away for many hours, which points to the likelihood that he was ignored. “Mrs. Perez feels her son’s legal rights were violated due to the fact the hospital didn’t provide him with proper care. As a result of the hospital’s negligence, they have lost a loved family member,” added Monroe.
This has the makings of a difficult case; no doubt the family is quite upset. They will be concerned about how to pay their bills, how to deal with medical expenses, funeral and burial costs. Life may well be an uphill battle for them in many respects. As the litigation drags on, the Perez family might wish to find out if they can take advantage of litigation funding. Litigation funding is called many things, including “lawsuit cash advance” and even, incorrectly, “lawsuit loan.”
Others call litigation funding “pre-settlement funding” or “lawsuit financing.” It doesn’t matter what you call it, this vital litigation tool has the potential to get your family through some really tough financial times. A lawsuit cash advance would allow the Perez family to pay their pressing bills immediately while waiting for justice.
If you’re not sure you want to pursue lawsuit funding, consider these facts: there are no up-front fees and no monthly payments to make. You may use the money for any purpose and you don’t have to repay it until you win your case or settle it and your attorney receives the lawsuit proceeds.
