A 75-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in her leg. She was treated and released days later; a blood thinner was prescribed. Less than a week later, the woman woke up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain in her hip and groin area. She was transported by ambulance to the hospital. Although doctors performed no testing, the woman was diagnosed with a musculoskeletal pain attributed to her earlier blood clot, and she was subsequently discharged to a nursing home. A day after arriving at the nursing home, a staff member found the woman in hemorrhagic shock. She was rushed back to the emergency room but ultimately died six weeks later.
Her family filed a lawsuit alleging that the doctor failed to timely diagnose and treat what turned out to be a retroperitoneal hematoma (an accumulation of blood in the portion of the abdomen called the retroperitoneal space). After a six-day trial the jury awarded in favor of the plaintiff.
Nothing can ever replace the loss of a loved one, but Litigation Funding Corporation is happy that the family of the deceased was able to seek justice. While we don’t know their financial situation, this case would have been eligible for litigation funding.
Many plaintiffs often face financial hardship as their bills continue to pile up, during a lengthy litigation process. Litigation Funding Corporation can provide a lawsuit cash advance and help plaintiffs receive some of the proceeds from the case now.
A lawsuit cash advance helps lessen the financial burden until a settlement can be reached. Without the pressure to settle, the attorney has time to obtain just compensation. This type of financing is not provided against assets; rather it is against the potential settlement of the case. That means there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. The cash advance is simply repaid once the case successfully settles. Had this plaintiff applied for, and received, litigation from us and lost her case, we would have completely waived repayment of the cash advance. That is because we assume all the risks when funding clients.
If you have lost a loved one due to medical negligence, filed a lawsuit, and looking for immediate cash while waiting for your case to settle, you may be able to obtain a lawsuit cash advance.
