Pre-Settlement Funding & Paralysis
Lyndon, or “Lindy” (not a real person) as his friends and customers called him, had the cheapest and fastest oil change in town. His shop was the place to go for brake jobs, alignments, A/C recharges, and all kinds of routine maintenance, and he could do big jobs, too. Engine rebuilds. Transmission replacements. Lindy and his crew got the job done on time and usually under estimate.
That was four years ago. Lindy’s shop is closed now, because it’s hard to run an automotive repair shop from a wheelchair.
Paralysis isn’t a consequence Lindy expected the night he went to the ER with nausea and a fever. The doctors figured out — correctly — that Lindy had an abdominal issue that required surgery. They admitted Lindy to the hospital and put him on intravenous fluids for dehydration.
About an hour before the surgery, though, they discontinued the IV fluids and began administering preoperative anesthesia. Those two decisions, taken together, tanked Lindy’s blood pressure. He failed to receive adequate blood flow to his spinal cord during the operation to repair his abdominal issue, and when he awoke in the recovery room, he couldn’t feel his lower body.
As the hospital and doctors stopped taking Lindy’s calls and answering his questions, Lindy did his best to run his shop without the use of his legs. But Lindy’s team wasn’t a team without Lindy, and he simply wasn’t able to put out the fires and provide the guidance as he had done before.
Lindy’s attorney agreed that he had a medical malpractice claim and took the case, but said it would take time to resolve. When she learned that Lindy was going to have to close his repair shop, the attorney told Lindy to call USClaims.
