Senior Dies of Untreated Infection Caused by Stone in Urinary Tract
May 9, 2017
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) May 9, 2017 – A 67-year old woman allegedly died as a result of not being treated for a blocked urinary tract caused by an infected renal stone. The woman’s husband filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against two doctors and the hospital that treated his wife prior to her death.
According to court documents filed in this case, the patient went to the local emergency department complaining of fever-like symptoms on October 24, 2016. An ultrasound was ordered and it was determined that the woman had a ureteral obstructing stone and a bacteria infection. The urologist in charge of the patient’s treatment allegedly suggested the findings were not serious enough to warrant antibiotics and discharged the woman with pain medications. No further tests were carried out.
Two days later, the patient, in a state of septic shock, returned to the hospital and was taken to the operating room. Despite aggressive treatment and time in the intensive care unit, the woman’s condition worsened and she died on October 27, 2016.
The lawsuit statement of claim suggested that the death was preventable, that the accepted standard of care for such an infection required the use of antibiotics and that had drugs been given, the patient would still be alive.
“Given the complex nature of medical malpractice lawsuits, they may take months, if not years to reach a conclusion,” said Litigation Funding Corporation representative, Daren Monroe. “Most victims are not financially able to wait years for a settlement or jury award, especially if they do not have financial assistance.” With the help of litigation funding, victims can take on a well-funded defendants and hold their own with a lawsuit cash advance that allows them to immediately deal with living expenses and other important bills.
Litigation funding, also referred to as a “lawsuit loan,” is not a traditional bank-like loan where lenders ask for a credit score, financial standing and a work history. The only thing that is important for obtaining litigation funding is the winnability of the case.
There are no monthly payments or upfront fees when a plaintiff is approved for a lawsuit loan, and the litigation funding company is repaid only if the lawsuit is won or settled. If the case is lost, any repayment is waived completely, with no strings attached.
“If you have a credible lawsuit and an attorney, you are already pre-approved,” added Monroe. Plaintiffs may start the process by filling out an online application for funding or they may call a toll-free number listed on the Litigation Funding Corporation website.
