NEWARK, N.J., March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that an autistic woman recently won a $9 million settlement with the city in a Brooklyn hospital medical malpractice case. According to The NY Post, "It was the largest single malpractice payout made by the city Health and Hospitals Corp. in the last fiscal year."
The patient, Ebony Curry – who is now paralyzed – was sent home from Kings County Hospital emergency room even though she had a severe spinal injury. The suit filed by her father alleged that "the then-27-year-old's paralysis was due to negligence by Kings County doctors who failed to diagnose her injury in 2011." The woman had fallen down stairs at home and then went to the ER, where she stayed for five hours. According to the article in The NY Post, "A radiologist later noticed the spinal injury but failed to contact Curry or her family. She had emergency surgery at a different hospital, but was still left a quadriplegic."
The city Health and Hospitals Corporation settled 221 lawsuits last year, which totaled $124 million. The HHC runs 11 hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes.
There are close to 100,000 wrongful deaths each year in the U.S. due to medical negligence and over 1 million personal injury lawsuit claims made each year as a result of medical malpractice. Legal-Bay funds medical malpractice and medical negligence cases, as well as judgment on appeal and verdict on appeal cases, and the company is dedicated to aiding victims and their family members during this difficult time with a lawsuit cash advance until their case can ultimately be settled or tried in court. Clients who have previously received lawsuit funding advances should not be deterred from contacting Legal-Bay for another funding. Legal-Bay specializes in creative solutions to help clients get funded even if they were denied elsewhere simply because they've received previous lawsuit funding.
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent medical malpractice settlement, "Cases of this nature are unfortunate and can be tragic, sometimes resulting in wrongful death. Medical malpractice cases can drag on for years due to their complexity, and our company can work with plaintiffs and attorneys with getting them large lawsuit funding advances to assist with their cash flow needs until they ultimately receive their settlement money."
