Supporting Victims of Medical Malpractice with Pre-Settlement FundingMarch 12, 2015
First, “Sandra” lost the baby. Then she lost her health, and then she started to lose her career.
With pre-settlement funding from USClaims, though, Sandra and her family are keeping their lives together.
When she first realized something was wrong, Sandra was seven months pregnant. She had just taken short-term disability from her event management job and had been on bed rest for about a week. For more than two days, she hadn’t felt the baby stir. A late night trip to the ER brought the devastating news: there was no fetal heartbeat.
Sandra had no time to grieve, though. While in the recovery room following the miscarriage operation, she knew something else was wrong. She felt faint and began to lose feeling in her extremities. During the procedure, the operating physician had perforated Sandra’s uterus and caused her to begin bleeding internally.
Thankfully, a nurse noticed her distress and made the notifications that stopped Sandra from bleeding to death. She underwent an emergency hysterectomy to remove her critically damaged uterus. In the space of a single day, Sandra lost both her child and her ability to have any other children. But that was only the beginning of her problems. Sandra’s unplanned hysterectomy developed a number of post-operative complications, major and minor, that have devastated her overall health and kept her out of work for more than a year, even as she continues to undergo counseling for her loss.
Though fictional, this story is all too real to the families who have suffered as a result of medical errors. “Sandra” consulted a personal injury attorney who evaluated the facts and told her that, in his opinion, she had a very strong case for a medical malpractice lawsuit. In the meantime, however, she had to go on long-term disability. Until the operation, Sandra had been the primary breadwinner in her family, and the disability payments were not enough to make ends meet.
