Grand Rapids Couple Receive $1.25 in Medical Malpractice Lawsuit from Radiologist’s Estate

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) May 5, 2014 - This lawsuit stemmed from a baby girl’s death in 2009.

“The baby, Sage Gilbert, was only three-days old when she died. Although she had been born prematurely, she was considered to be healthy. To assist her to eat, she was fed though an umbilical venous catheter, inserted into an artery or vein of the baby’s cord. She was in the neonatal intensive care unit and by all reports was doing well, until her early morning feeding when the catheter was inserted,” explains Daren Monroe, of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan.

On insertion, it was protocol to take x-rays to make sure the catheter was in the proper position. The x-ray of baby Sage showed clearly that the tip was in her heart. The radiologist said nothing and reported there were no abnormalities. Due to the improper placement of the catheter, fluid built up around the baby’s heart, causing her to go into cardiac arrest. A coroner’s report indicated both her lungs had partially or completely collapsed and that there was feeding solution in the sac that surrounds the heart. “Had the radiologist mentioned the improper placement of the catheter, Sage would be alive today,” says Monroe.

The 63-year-old radiologist died in 2012, four months prior to the family filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. The court decided his failure to tell anyone about the improper placement was negligent and thus a contributing factor in the baby’s death.

“How would this family be able to pay for their baby’s medical care? The expenses would be quite high and they would likely have been hard pressed to find that kind of money. The answer may have been to contact a litigation funding company and fill out an application form for pre-settlement funding, an emergency lawsuit loan for plaintiff’s struggling financially to cope with medical expenses and their usual monthly bills,” explains Monroe.

Many lawsuit loan applicants are pleased to discover that they are not required to pay any money upfront or monthly once they obtain their emergency funding. Additionally, the application process is very easy and the plaintiff is not required to have a job, and not required to go through a credit check. Should their case be lost in court, the plaintiff then keeps the lawsuit loan, no strings attached. “It’s worth doing research to find out if this process would work for you, if you need this kind of funding,” adds Monroe.
