Misdiagnosis of Subdural Hematoma Leads to Premature Death

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) November 3, 2015 - In yet another wrongful death, medical malpractice lawsuit filed against Glenbrook Hospital, Edward Mack is suing the NorthShore University HealthSystem on behalf of his deceased wife, Barbara Mack.

The statement of claim filed in Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015-L-009769 alleges that Barbara Mack was admitted to Glenbrook Hospital in September 2013. Her medical care team consisted of Dr. Noah DeGarmo and two certified physician’s assistants, Sandra Leeson and Kelly Izsak.

The allegations state that the named defendants failed to diagnose and administer treatment to Barbara Mack for what later turned out to be subdural hematoma and cranial bleeding. As a result of being misdiagnosed, Mack suffered serious and permanent injuries that resulted in her death seven months later, in April 2014.

A subdural hematoma, diagnosed via a CT scan or an MRI, involves bleeding into the space between the brain cover and the brain, referred to as the subdural space. It causes increased pressure on the brain and may result in impaired gait, slurred speech and dizziness. If not treated promptly, it may leave the patient in a coma and lead to death.

Mack is seeking over $50,000 from the court.

“While waiting for his case to go to settlement or court, Mr. Mack may wish to do some research on litigation funding and how it could help him pay urgent medical bills, funeral and burial expenses and still be able to make his usual monthly payments as well,” said Litigation Funding Corporation representative Daren Monroe.

Pre-settlement funding, also referred to as a lawsuit loan, is emergency funding approved for a qualified plaintiff needing financial assistance. The applicant applies either online or by phone and provides all relevant case details, as well as the name of his or her attorney. Once the application has been reviewed and approved, the litigation funding company sends the lawsuit via the fastest possible method directly to the plaintiff’s bank account. “That typically takes less than 48-hours and often as little as 24-hours,” said Monroe.

Most plaintiffs find it very appealing that if they lose their case, they get to keep the pre-settlement funding with no strings attached. They also appreciate not having to deal with insurance companies trying to get them to settle quickly and for a lesser amount than may be awarded by a court. “Even if you suspect litigation funding may not be for you, it is worth getting more information to make an informed decision,” Monroe said.
