A Louisiana man has filed a lawsuit alleging that his heart attack could have been prevented if a doctor properly treated his medical condition. The man consulted Dr. Hutchinson after suffering increased chest pains and numbness in his hands. The patient stated that he underwent a heart catheterization and angiogram, and that the doctor told him if stents were required or the blockages needed to be removed, the procedures would take place at the same time. According to the claim, the doctor found severe heart concerns warranting the stents, yet no stents were implanted and the man was discharged. In less than 3 weeks, the man was rushed to the ER for a heart attack. This time a stent was inserted, but severe heart damage had already occurred; the man was left disabled. The suit claims that had the stent been implanted weeks earlier, the man would not be disabled today. The plaintiff seeks an unspecified amount.
This case already extends over four years, and the suit was just filed. What if it takes longer than expected to resolve? What if the couple can’t get a quick trial date or an early, satisfactory settlement offer? Accepting a permanent disability certainly is not easy especially when it could have been avoided. The emotional, mental and physical stress is enough to deal with; the last thing this man and his wife need is to worry about is how to keep up with the financial obligations. Although I don’t know the financial status of this couple, this case is a perfect example where lawsuit funding could help avoid the pressure of accepting an early settlement that offers too little.
Lawsuit funding helps plaintiffs who are struggling to make ends meet without sufficient funds to handle unexpected medical bills and ordinary living expenses. When applying for a lawsuit cash advance, employment and good credit do not matter; only the strength of the case is important. After completing an online application, a professional staff member will request case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. If approved, funds can be available within 24-48 hours. Repayment is contingent on the outcome of the lawsuit, meaning if the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is completely waived.
