Texas Nursing Home Resident Allegedly Beaten by Nursing Assistant

October 31, 2018

The family of a nursing home resident planned to celebrate their father’s 84th birthday, but when they arrived at the facility they found him beaten and bruised. Although staff said the cause was an incident with the man’s roommate, police believe the resident may have been beaten by a nursing assistant.

According to an investigation earlier this year by Texas Health and Human Services, 12 violations were cited at the nursing home — seven were “life safety violations,” and five were health violations where inspectors stated, “the facility did not protect each resident from all abuse, physical punishment, and being separated from others.” Several violations have allegedly yet to be remedied. The facility was also cited because it “failed to have written rules against mistreating, neglecting, and abusing residents, and mishandling residents’ property.”

The family may wish to seek compensation for their father’s injuries by filing a personal injury lawsuit. However, they may find that they are unable to cope financially while waiting out the litigation process against high-powered defendants. In that case, litigation funding may be a good option.

Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance for life needs when plaintiffs may not be able to find money elsewhere, such as family or friends or a traditional bank loan. It can mean the difference between paying the rent or facing eviction. A lawsuit cash advance can also level the playing field until justice is served.

A seriously injured plaintiff who has hired an attorney, and has a strong case with merit is eligible for litigation funding. Applying for a cash advance against a future settlement is fast and easy. There is no cost to apply and no up-front or out-of-pocket expenses. Litigation Funding Corporation will work with your attorney to review your case and reach a funding decision in less than 48 hours.

Pre-settlement funding, or a lawsuit loan, is a non-recourse cash advance tied to the personal injury claim. Repayment is only due once the case successfully settles. The attorney handles the repayment through the case proceeds. If there is no recovery, repayment of the lawsuit loan is completely waived, making it a virtually risk-free cash advance for the plaintiff.

If you have a personal injury case and questions regarding pre-settlement funding, call Litigation Funding Corporation, toll-free at 1-866-548-3863.

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.
