Cat Bite Victim Claims For Medical Negligence

medical negligenceA woman has started a medical negligence claim against the University of Michigan Health System after the doctors on site were unable to handle the conditions she was facing after a cat bit her, she claims.

Miss Nurnberg said: "I checked into the University Hospital's emergency room in May 2013 after I developed infections from a cat bite on my hand." She's looking to claim a minimum of £50,000 in damages for the negligence. In America, the minimum amount of damages for a Circuit Court lawsuit is $25,000.

Interestingly enough, Nurnberg has filed the claim without the assistance of a solicitor. She is still suffering from the cat bite to this day. She said: "I'm bedridden most of the time. This has been the worst experience of my life. It has wrecked my life. I want to do everything in my power to ensure that this does not happen to anyone else."

Miss Nurnberg is not claiming against the infectious disease physicians but against the other physicians who apparently put her through a 'botched MRI'. She added: "The doctors didn't properly handle the kidney and anemia problems and didn't give me adequate discharge orders."
