A New Orleans widow and her adult children have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a tracheotomy tube manufacturer.
According to the complaint, on May 16, 2016, the deceased man was preparing to remove for routine cleaning the inner cannula of his tracheotomy (trach) tube when suddenly and without warning, the outer/larger cannula failed by separating from the neck flange. As a result, the man had difficulty breathing and died before EMT were able to resuscitate him.
The lawsuit alleges that the trach manufacturer negligently designed, manufactured and sold the defective tracheotomy tube. The plaintiffs seek a trial by jury and an undisclosed amount in damages, including loss of love and affection, society, companionship, services and consortium.
Being injured, or losing a loved one by defective medical devices is a very serious matter. Victims not only face physical and emotional hardships, but as the bills pile up, financial constraints can jeopardize one’s credit, lead to bankruptcy, or even foreclosure. Litigation Funding Corporation can put money in the plaintiff’s pocket in the form of a lawsuit cash advance against the pending settlement.
This cash advance is known as litigation funding. It is provided on a non-recourse basis which means no risk to the plaintiff. We take the time to evaluate the strength of each case and customize a solution to fit the plaintiff’s specific needs. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification; repayment is made only after the case settles and the proceeds are dispersed. If the case is lost, repayment of the cash advance is completely waived.
