Prominent Surgeon Facing Medical Negligence Lawsuit

March 31, 2014

A victim of medical negligence has the right to seek legal remedy and just compensation. For those without adequate financial support during this time, pre-settlement lawsuit funding can be a viable solution.

According to a recent medical malpractice suit, a 72-year-old man underwent surgery to repair an ascending aortic aneurysm, but the cardiac surgeon’s negligence has left the man bedridden in a vegetative state. The suit alleges that the prominent surgeon left the operating room before the patient was stabilized and instructed a physician’s assistant to close the patient’s chest. The patient quickly took a turn for the worse; his heart stopped beating as oxygen and blood rapidly escaped his body. An investigation revealed that the physician’s assistant was not qualified to complete the procedure. Additionally, the surgeon’s decision to leave the operating room before the patient was in stable condition violated hospital policies. The family seeks damages for past and future medical bills, around the clock medical and personal care via nursing home, pain, suffering, mental anguish, limitations on future life activities, and damage to the marriage.

Litigation Funding Makes the Difference

Scenario 1:
Michael was seriously injured in an auto accident and filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver. His injuries left him unable to return to work, but he savings to tap into to pay the bills. Unfortunately, the money ran out within six months. Unable to obtain a bank loan, he felt forced to settle for less than he deserved in order to maintain his credit and keep his home.

Scenario 2:
James was seriously injured in an auto accident and filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver. He had no savings and could not qualify for a bank loan. Instead, James applied for litigation funding to help pay the bills. When the case was delayed, James was able to apply for, and receive, an additional cash advance. At no time did he jeopardize his credit standing. When the case eventually settled, James paid back the cash advance from the proceeds of his case; his credit remained intact.

Pending Cases Benefit with Pre-Settlement Funding

March 3, 2014

We all are aware that thousands of innocent people suffer from a personal injury every year, but no one imagines that it could ever happen to them or someone they love. Depending on the type and the severity of the injury, medical expenses can reach thousands of dollars or more, pain and suffering can last years, and some injuries can put a victim out of work for life.

When the injury is due to the actions or negligence or another person or entity, the victim may pursue a personal injury lawsuit to receive financial compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, long or short term disabilities, even redress for emotional or psychological injuries.

Filing a personal injury lawsuit is about justice and receiving fair compensation to help a victim cover medical, funeral expenses, long term care, and/or loss of wages, but it can also help prevent such negligence from being repeated. Unfortunately, many times these lawsuits will take months, even years to resolve causing injured victims to feel forced, by financial circumstances, to consider settlements too early and for too little. Pre-settlement funding prevents this from happening.

Pre-settlement funding relieves financial pressures which could motivate injured plaintiffs to accept a settlement offer well below what they deserve. It is a no-risk lawsuit cash advance, NOT a loan; there is no obligation to repay if the case is lost.

With a pre-settlement cash advance, plaintiffs buy precious time to develop their case and allow their attorney the time need to negotiate a fair settlement. If you need financial staying power to pursue your case, lawsuit funding may be an option. Complete the online application or call out professional, pro-justice staff for a free, no-obligation consultation.
