MILWAUKEE, Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reported today that the 2014 $25.3 million settlement in the medical malpractice case where a 53 year old woman had her limbs amputated in 2011 after a Strep A infection led to septic shock is just one such case of severe injuries and damages due to medical malpractice that the company continues to focus on for plaintiffs. The damage caused by the infection led to the amputations, according to testimony in the case, and the jurors eventually decided in favor of the woman.
This is just one example of the serious negligence and medical malpractice that goes on in hospitals and surgery centers throughout the U.S. The woman, Ascaris Mayo, spent about nine hours at the hospital in March of 2011, undergoing treatment for severe abdominal pain, rapid heartbeat, and fever. She was discharged and instructed to contact her gynecologist the following morning for fibroid issues. However, she collapsed later that day, and was then treated for septic shock. The infection was stopped, but the resulting damage to her vascular system led to the amputation of all four limbs. Mayo and her husband were awarded $25.3 million in July of 2014 after a Milwaukee County jury found that she had lost all four limbs as a result of medical malpractice.
There are close to 100K wrongful deaths each year in the U.S. due to medical negligence. Furthermore, there are over 1 million Personal Injury lawsuit Claims made each year as a result of medical malpractice. Many times, Doctors, Surgeons, Hospitals, and other medical personnel are reluctant to accept blame for their gross negligence and they hire legal teams to delay the lawsuit as long as possible. Depending on the extent of the injuries, this leaves many plaintiffs without necessary funds to pay for basic living needs while they are out of work recovering. Legal-Bay funds medical malpractice and negligence cases and are 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.
Chris Janish, CEO, commented on the company's efforts, "Medical Malpractice claims are very complex cases and are defended vigorously by defense counsels. Many times, insurance companies try to have the plaintiffs take 'low ball numbers' because they are injured and out of work. Our medical malpractice pre-settlement funding program is not only designed to help the plaintiff live their life in dignity during this time, but also enables the plaintiff to wait patiently to get the correct settlement value for their case which could be life altering."
