Patient Alleges Negligence During Surgery Cause Esophagus Injury

January 3, 2017 | Product Liability

While the use of a flexible probing tool during surgery is supposed to reduce injuries, there is still the risk of errors, leading to complications, injury, even death if gone undetected. For example, if the esophagus is perforated during a medical procedure, the contents of the esophagus can collect in the chest area, resulting in a serious infection requiring surgery to repair the hole. If undetected, it could result in serious injury or death.

Any delay or failure to provide the appropriate standard of care could be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

A man recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging he was injured during surgery in December 2014 at a Veterans Affairs hospital in California. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff holds the surgeon and hospital responsible for negligence during surgery that caused esophagus damage that went undetected for two weeks. The plaintiff seeks general damages, medical expenses, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just.

While waiting for their case to settle, the plaintiff could be facing financial issues in which litigation funding could help. This lawsuit cash advance is often the answer to difficult situations where a plaintiff is between a rock and a hard place without sufficient funds to handle unexpected medical bills and ordinary living expenses such as the rent/mortgage, groceries, utility bills, etc.

Receiving a lawsuit cash begins with completing an online application. Next, one of our professional staff members will request case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. Once the application has been reviewed, if the case is approved for funding, we will prepare a contract for signature by the plaintiff and his/her attorney. Funds will then be sent via overnight mail or wire transfer.

There are no applications fees, no credit check and no employment requirements required. Because there is no need for a credit check, the plaintiff’s credit remains intact. But, the most appealing benefits of litigation funding is that there are no monthly payments and if the case is lost, the cash advance does not need to be repaid.
