When Surgeons Leave Behind Surgical Clip, The Patient Pays Dearly

We trust that when we have surgery the doctor will take all the necessary steps to prevent us from further injury or harm. However, that is not always the case. Medical mistakes consist of many types of errors including such things as misdiagnosis, wrong medication, wrong dosage, failure to diagnose and surgical mistakes.

More than a dozen times a day, doctors sew up patients with sponges and other supplies mistakenly left inside. The mistake can lead to serious injuries; in some cases it can cost the patient their life.

A Chicago man has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging that a surgeon left a surgical clip — a small device used to help pull sections of the body away from an area where surgery is taking place — inside his body following the procedure. A malpractice lawsuit alleges negligence, resulting in the patient suffering severe pain and physical injuries. He also had to endure another surgery to remove the clip. The lawsuit seeks damages of more than $50,000 as well as legal costs.

Medical malpractice lawsuits can take years before a settlement is reached. This can be tough for anyone living paycheck to paycheck or unable to work. Unfortunately due to the amount of time it takes for these cases to settle, victims are put in a tough financial position. Not many would have enough savings to cover the medical costs this man most likely encountered from the surgeries alone. Some victims may decide to settle their case early to avoid debt. That is exactly what the insurance company wants you to do. There is another alternative to an early settlement – litigation funding, a cash advance against your lawsuit to help pay those medical bills, mortgage, rent, and more.
During the litigation process, if this man needs financial assistance, he may wish to consult a litigation funding expert. Litigation funding, if approved, can help a medical malpractice victim with their daily household bills and expenses, as well as medical expenses while waiting for a fair settlement or verdict. This lawsuit cash advance helps prevent a pennies-on-the-dollar settlement, while providing staying power for a fair and equitable settlement later. The application process takes less than five minutes. With no credit checks and no employment verification, the approval process is expedited. All that is needed is case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. If approved, a cash advance that could be wired to his bank account within 24- 48 hours of approval.
