Lawsuit Alleges Negligence Caused Infant’s Brain Damage During Birth

September 3, 2019

Few things are more devastating than realizing that an incident during birth caused your child serious and permanent injury.

A woman has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a medical center and doctor over allegations of negligence.

The plaintiff was admitted to the medical facility for labor and delivery. She alleges that drugs were administered to induce labor, then subsequently increased when labor wasn’t progressing promptly. Although the baby was also being monitored, the lawsuit claims that he showed late decelerations that were not recognized by the defendants. As a result, the baby was born with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), a type of brain damage when the brain doesn’t get enough oxygen and blood. The child will suffer from life-long medical complications and disabilities, the suit states.

Cases like this are hard-fought; moving forward may be financially draining. Medical expenses, coupled with day-to-day bills associated with the case of the child, could leave this family financially devasted.

While litigation funding cannot solve physical and emotional issues, a lawsuit cash advance can substantially lessen the financial burdens.

Litigation funding is interim financial support to plaintiffs in a pending lawsuit. Funding is based solely on the strength of the case; if the case is reviewed and appears to be winnable, the application will likely be approved with funds available within 24 – 48 hours. No money is owed until the case successfully settles at which time repayment is made from the proceeds of the case. If the plaintiff loses the case, repayment is waived completely.

The application process is quick and easy by phone or online because credit-worthiness and job history are not factors in our funding decision.

If you have filed, or plan to file, a medical malpractice lawsuit and are represented by an attorney, you may be eligible for medical malpractice litigation funding. For a free, no-obligation consultation or funding analysis, contact Litigation Funding online or by phone.
