Even Experienced Doctors Can Make Life-Threatening MistakesAugust 28, 2016
“Candace” (not a real person) had suffered from multiple sclerosis for years. She had significant pain and blurred vision on the left side of her face, and her medication wasn’t helping matters. With all her other options exhausted, her neurosurgeon suggested surgery to relieve the pressure on the nerves in her brain.
Candace went ahead with the surgery. During her recovery period, however, instead of getting better, the pain only intensified. The doctor prescribed another medication, which seemed to work for a little while, but two months after her surgery, Candace suffered a seizure that required another stay in the hospital.
It shouldn’t have happened. Candace sought advice from a personal injury attorney, who reviewed her medical records and believed that her neurosurgeon had neglected to examine Candace’s MRI before surgery. If he had done so, he would have noticed lesions on her brain stem, a complication that would have contradicted the surgery. It was a simple oversight – one that could have cost Candace her life.
Candace filed a medical malpractice suit against her neurosurgeon for his negligent behavior and her continued pain and suffering she believed was caused by the surgical procedure. Still in pain from her MS symptoms, and with the bills from her extended hospital stays piling up, she didn’t know how she was going to make ends meet.
That was when her attorney suggested Candace contact USClaims to help her secure pre-settlement funding so she could stay afloat during her difficult recuperation.
