LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that a 3-year-old girl who suffered a brain injury during her delivery was recently awarded $9.6 million in damages in a medical malpractice case. According to the Washington Times, U.S. District Court Judge John Mendez in Sacramento ruled on October 28th that the child "suffered a brain injury during her delivery because the doctor waited too long to deliver her via C-section." The judge decided this occurred even though there was evidence that the heart rate of the baby was worsening and her mother was unable to deliver vaginally. The article stated that the girl was born at Banner-Lassen Hospital in Susanville, and that she will "never be able to walk, talk, or care for herself." The child also "suffers occasional seizures" and "must be fed through a feeding tube into her stomach." Her mother was awarded $250,000 in compensation for the emotional distress that she suffered during the delivery.
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 award, "The current case is one in which a trial was necessary since the defendants denied liability and refused to settle. This is common in complex medical malpractice cases, which can drag on for years and sometimes decades if they become verdict on appeal cases. Our company is one of the few companies in the industry that can work with plaintiffs and attorneys with getting them large lawsuit funding advances to assist with their cash flow needs until they ultimately get their money."
Legal-Bay is currently accepting applications on all personal injury cases that are no fault of the plaintiff and where an attorney is already retained. Legal-Bay specializes in large lawsuit funding amounts and can also assist plaintiffs who have been turned down simply because they have a prior lawsuit advance with another legal finance company.
