YONKERS, N.Y., Oct. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that in light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the time is now to get proper screening and, in some cases, seek second opinions if you feel something is not right. Legal-Bay urges the public to be aware of medical malpractice cases as a whole and learn how misdiagnoses can rapidly change your life if an issue is not caught immediately.
In one case in 2011, a 57 year old woman received a 3 million dollar settlement in a medical malpractice lawsuit where her breast cancer was misdiagnosed, allowing the cancer to spread to her bones and brain, nearly taking her life. This was a result of a poorly conducted mammogram and sonogram, where the radiologist failed to report the presence of an abnormality. The patient was not referred to a surgeon or sent for a biopsy until November 2007, when another lump appeared under her left arm. Eventually she was referred to a surgeon who diagnosed her with stage IV breast cancer, which by then had metastasized to her left axillary lymph nodes and lungs. Next, the cancer spread to her bones and brain, and at the time, her prognosis was grave.
There are close to 100K wrongful deaths each year in the U.S. due to medical negligence. Additionally, there are over 1mm Personal Injury Claims made each year from medical malpractice. Many times, Doctors, Surgeons, Hospitals, and other medical personnel are unwilling to accept blame for their gross negligence and they hire high powered legal teams to delay the lawsuit as long as possible. Depending on the extent of the injuries, this leaves many plaintiffs without funds to fix the original problem or even keep up with basic living expenses while they recover from their injuries. Legal-Bay funds medical malpractice and negligence cases involving doctors, surgeons, and hospitals, and are dedicated to aiding victims and their family members during this rough time.
Chris Janish, CEO, commented on the company's efforts, "Our focus on medical malpractice lawsuit funding cases for our clients is unwavering, with one of the largest types of medical negligence cases we see being misdiagnoses, especially in cases involving misdiagnoses of cancer. It is appropriate at this time during breast cancer awareness month that we urge women to not only seek proper screening for breast and ovarian cancer, but also consider second opinions to confirm the proper results."
