Undiagnosed Pertussis Causes Death of Baby
PUBLISHED BY: LFN Primary
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) July 11, 2018 – Eight years after the death of her baby daughter, a Pennsylvania mother was awarded $4 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleged that the baby’s death could have been prevented, as the mother had asked numerous times for her daughter to be tested for whooping cough, because she had symptoms herself.
A jury agreed that the child should have been diagnosed and treated sooner. The defendant plans to appeal.
It is difficult to move forward after the death of a loved one financially and emotionally. Medical malpractice lawsuits such as this one are exceedingly complex, and can take months or years before a settlement is reached. Even when a case is settled, a plaintiff may not be compensated due to an appeal.
“No one has unlimited finances. Many people live paycheck-to-paycheck,” said Litigation Funding Corporation representative, Daren Monroe. “Victims may be overwhelmed by medical or funeral and burial expenses, in addition to their regular bills.”
Pre-settlement funding allows plaintiffs the grace to wait for a fair and equitable settlement without financial pressure from insurance companies wanting them to settle too soon for too little. “A lawsuit cash advance is non-recourse,” added Monroe, “which means if the plaintiff loses their case, repaying the advance is completely waived.” Litigation Funding Corporation only gets paid back if there is a successful recovery on the lawsuit.
The process for obtaining a lawsuit cash advance is as simple as filling out an online application or calling Litigation Funding Corporation toll-free at 1.866.LIT.FUND. “Once we receive your application and case documentation, our underwriters evaluate the case and if approved, provide funding within 24 – 48 hours.
