A Georgia nursing home settled a wrongful death lawsuit on the eve before the case was set to go to trial.
According to the lawsuit, the deceased man had been sent to the facility for rehabilitation services after a stroke. During his stay, the man develop pressure sores and was found to be dehydrated and malnourished. His widow alleged that poor care caused her husband’s declining health, and ultimately his death from gangrene-infected pressure sores.
The case settled for an undisclosed amount.
The nursing home had consistently received below average ratings as a result of numerous violations and had been named in several lawsuits over the last ten years. The facility declared bankruptcy and was sold this past May.

Lawsuit funding is used by most people to pay their medical bills, funeral expenses, and ordinary but important bills and expenses that accumulate because of serious injury or death. The strategic advantage of a lawsuit cash advance is that it provides the plaintiff with the financial strength to await for a reasonable offer from the insurance company or defendant.
The application process is easy and may be handled over the phone or online; it takes less than five minutes. There are no upfront fees, monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. Once an application and case documentation is reviewed, if the case is approved for funding the plaintiff can receive the money within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment is contingent upon case outcome; if the case is lost, there is no requirement to pay the money back. Thus, lawsuit funding is a no-risk lawsuit cash advance.
