12 Million Dollar Award to Woman in Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) December 29, 2017 - In 2003, due to a medical error, a 46-year-old Arizona woman was left in a coma. The medical malpractice lawsuit resulted in a $12 million jury award.

According to the lawsuit, the patient went to the emergency room complaining of pain and thin blood. She was given the drug Profilnine, but two hours later she suffered blood clots and cardiac arrest. The patient was given a clot-busting drug, returning her heart rate to normal and improving her oxygen levels. However, she never regained consciousness and now remains in a persistent vegetative state, requiring around-the-clock care.

Attorneys for the named defendants argued that the plaintiff did not give the hospital an accurate medical history when she was admitted. They plan to appeal the jury decision.

While waiting for their case to be resolved, the family may face serious financial issues with which litigation funding could help. In fact, lawsuit funding is a viable option during an appeal, as well. A lawsuit cash advance, or a “lawsuit loan,” is often an answer for a plaintiff without enough funds to handle unexpected medical expenses, long-term care and/or their usual living costs.

Approval for a lawsuit loan is easy. To be approved for a lawsuit loan, the plaintiff needs to apply online or call the litigation funding company. “One of our professional staff will documents the case, and requests pertinent case documentation from the plaintiff’s lawyer,” explained Daren Monroe, Litigation Funding Corporation representative. “If the case is approved, we write up a contract for signature and send the approved funds by wire transfer or overnight mail.” Litigation funding does not need to be repaid if the plaintiff loses their case in court.

“If you feel a family member has been seriously injured due to medical malpractice, a missed or delayed diagnosis, or neglect by a doctor, hospital, or other health care professional, you may have a grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit,” said Monroe. “A lawsuit may offer the mechanism you need to pay your bills, keep your credit standing, and fight for your rights.”
