Carol Saleh alleges negligent medical care caused her to sustain a stroke.
NorthShore University Health System (Glenbrook Hospital) and Dr. Steven Meyers are being sued by Saleh for failing to diagnose and treat hypoglycemia in a timely manner, not ordering lab work to determine why her physical and mental status kept changing during her admission and failure to determine the cause of a stroke and to treat the underlying cause in order to prevent further injuries.
According to the statement of claim (Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015L009811), Saleh was a patient at Glenbrook Hospital in March 2014, and in the care of Meyers. Due to the physician not correctly or appropriately treating her for hypoglycemia, she alleges she was the victim of a stroke that that then remained untreated for several hours causing her further pain, anguish and injury and a prolonged stay in hospital.
If a doctor, other medical professionals or a hospital do not properly care for a patient, that individual may have grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Medical malpractice can take on many forms from misdiagnosis to medication errors and surgical errors to failure to diagnose.
The Saleh family may wish to consider sourcing litigation funding to help them get through the next few months while their case is being prepared to go to trial. Pre-settlement funding is an emergency cash loan sent as quickly as possible to a qualified plaintiff.
The lawsuit loan goes straight into his or her bank account and may be accessed to pay for anything. However, most plaintiffs receiving litigation funding know that it is wise to pay medical bills first and keep the remainder for pay for their normal and usual financial obligations, such as student loans, rent, mortgage and car payments.
Litigation funding is not for everyone, but it is a good option to look into. Being financially strapped while waiting for a trial is enormously stressful and may contribute to deteriorating health consequences for the plaintiff. They have already been through the wringer in more ways than one before they make a call to a litigation funding company, or apply online.
Representatives are highly trained and treat all applicants with respect. A plaintiff wishing to apply for pre-settlement funding needs to be able to provide the required documents for verification of their case and must also provide the name of the attorney he or she is working with to facilitate matters.
This is a no stress process and plaintiffs do not require a credit check, do not need to be working when they make an application, do not pay any money up front or over the term of the lawsuit loan and may keep the money if their case loses in court.
