Botched Gallbladder Operation Nets Woman $60,000 Jury Award Reports Litigation Funding Corporation
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) February 3, 2014 – This medical negligence case was the result of a surgical error made by a doctor during gall bladder surgery.
“The plaintiff in this case filed a medical negligence lawsuit in 2011, relating to her surgery performed in 2009. The statement of claim alleged that the surgeon did not take the proper precautions to locate and identify the small duct that led to her small intestine. In failing to do his job properly, he severed an artery to the liver and the duct to her small intestine,” explains Daren Monroe, Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan.
As a result of the mistakes, the plaintiff was rushed to another medical care center where she was required to undergo another operation to fix the first surgeon’s errors. The lady was left with a very large scar across her rib cage and has been living with unrelenting pain since the surgeries. The pain has restricted her lifestyle.
“The $60,000 verdict by the jury did acknowledge that there was negligence involved in the first operation. The surgeon that cut the duct and artery is no longer working at the hospital where the accident happened and the institution is not commenting on the details of the case or the amount of the verdict,” Monroe added
No matter what the jury decided in terms of the amount of the award, which was lower than what the plaintiff filed for, she would have been facing some serious medical bills as a result of her two operations and continuing medical issues. She would likely need an extra stream of cash to handle all of her bills. She may have found that applying for lawsuit funding would have helped her financial situation as she was waiting for her case to be settled.
Pre-settlement funding is defined as an emergency lawsuit loan that allows the plaintiff to return to financial stability for the duration of their case, until settlement or jury verdict. They may pay their medical bills with the lawsuit loan, as well as their regular, important financial obligations, such as mortgage payments, tuition, car payments and/or rent.
“Calling a litigation funding company to find out what they have to offer cash strapped plaintiffs is a no obligation investment of your time, should you decide the process is not for you. However, many victims realize that pre-settlement funding is just what they need to manage from day-to-day until their case is resolved. Call and ask questions. It may be the best choice you have ever made,” suggested Monroe.
