Woman Files Medical Malpractice Suit Alleging Catheter Was Misplaced

December 1, 2016 | Product Liability

Patients place their trust in the hands of healthcare professionals every day. When a negligent or reckless action by a healthcare provider causes a patient serious harm, the wrongdoer should be held legally liable for compensation to the victim. The process begins with hiring an experienced medical malpractice attorney.

A woman recently filed such a claim after she allegedly suffered severe injuries because medical staff members failed to recognize that they had improperly placed a catheter inside her body, then failed to detect and diagnose the improper placement. The lawsuit alleges that as a result of the medical error, the patient suffered severe and permanent injuries, including but not limited to vascular and internal injuries resulting in pain and suffering, mental anguish and further medical expenses. She requests a trial by jury and is seeking damages in excess of $50,000.

Verdicts in favor of injured medical patients often lead to protocol changes and new regulations that may prevent similar injuries from happening to others. Successful claims may also provide compensation that can help recovering victims meet the financial costs associated with their injuries. But, such cases take time – often years. Those seeking financial assistance during this time may want to consider litigation funding.

The main purpose of litigation funding is to prevent financial distress cause a plaintiff to settle a valuable case too soon, for too little.
