Pre-Settlement Funding for Wrong Site SurgeriesMarch 24, 2016
“Tom” (not a real person) could not believe the magnitude of the error. He had gone in for surgery and awoke to find scars and pain in a new location, one on the side of his body opposite to the planned surgical site. The medical team had operated on the wrong place!
Despite having been subjected to the wrong procedure, Tom still needed the correct amount of recovery time, which he spent mired in depression. The surgery being done on healthy tissue had hurt him not only physically, but mentally; his emotional state was distressed at this unexpected violation of his body and his trust.
Tom planned to file a civil suit against the surgeon, the operating team, and the hospital for medical, emotional, and legal damages; a grievous mistake had been made, and now he was not only missing out on work but also was suffering needlessly.
He consulted a medical malpractice attorney, who reviewed the facts and concluded that a failure in communication and operating room leadership was to blame. Someone, at some point, had marked the wrong site down on a chart, and this error was never corrected or even challenged. Tom’s legal case was strong, but the hospital’s legal team could keep the suit in court far longer than Tom could afford to retain his lawyer. Tom’s lawyer told him to call USClaims.
