Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) April 4, 2014 – This shocking case involves a man on the operating table for open-heart surgery. His surgeon left before closing, designating someone else to finish. “This case is hard to get your head around,” says Darren Monroe, of Litigation Funding, Michigan. “It’s difficult to understand why a surgeon would walk away from an operation and hand over closing the open chest to an inexperienced junior physician.” In this case, a Fresno, California cardiologist did just that – walked out of an OR before cardiac surgery was done. The medical negligence lawsuit alleges that […]

Sluggerrr does his job and sends up rally cries on a regular basis, dances, performs and runs like the wind up and down the field. He also throws hotdogs at fans. “Which is not so good,” pointed out Daren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. Sluggerrr, in the throes of revving the crowd up in 2009 in Overland Park in Kansas, pitched a hotdog, wrapped in foil, into […]

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) November 1, 2013 – This series of medical negligence complaints had a bizarre outcome. The accused doctor is allowed to keep his medical license and practice. “Even though the surgeon in this unusual case has been allowed to keep his license to practice, it would not stop the families of those claiming medical negligence from suing him.

The initial complaint registered against the Tulsa surgeon included the names of 23 patients who sustained […]
