Failure to Diagnose by Two Physicians Results in Man’s Death

A 63-year-old man died as a result of a severe infection that two physicians failed to diagnose.

The man’s family chose to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, alleging medical negligence. The lawsuit resulted in a jury award of over $4 million.

Court documents showed the man was admitted to the hospital in severe pain. After getting blood tests, two doctors examined him, but neither of the doctors spoke to each other to compare findings and discuss diagnostic possibilities.

The doctors suspected pancreatitis; however, no tests were done to confirm. The patent ended up having sepsis. Thirty-six hours later, the man died. The case ultimately went to the Supreme Court, and the jury found both physicians and the hospital responsible for the man’s death.

Despite the short period of time the man was in the hospital, his family would have faced significant medical bills, including tests, examinations, the cost of the room and any medications. They would also face funeral and burial expenses.

The family may have been interested in applying for a lawsuit loan from a litigation funding company to help them deal with their financial strain. Pre-settlement funding is emergency fast cash allowing plaintiffs the security of having funds on hand to pay all of their necessary bills, including mortgage, school loans, rent and car payments.
