Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of Three Young Children Alleges Medical Negligence

October 13, 2014

When doctors and hospitals fail to exercise proper care in prescribing medications, they may be putting the health,and even lives, of their patients at risk. Sadly, these mistakes can end in deaths that could have been prevented. To seek justice for the death of a loved one and receive compensation for your loss, you should consult an experienced wrongful death attorney. Once you retain an attorney, if you need financial assistance until a verdict or settlement is reach, you should consult an experienced legal funding company.

In August of 2013, a 34-year-old man sought medical treatment for stomach pain and was admitted to Merced Medical Center in Merced, California. He died later that night. A wrongful death lawsuit was filed on behalf of his surviving young children, ages 11, 3 and 2, alleging hospital negligence. The lawsuit claims the patient died as a result of hospital staff administering a lethal dose of hydromorphone, a type of morphine, and staff failed to check on him for at least several hours after administering the pain-killing medication. According to the toxicology report, which took seven months to come back, the official cause of death was “sudden cardiorespiratory arrest” due to “acute hydromorphone intoxication.” The report also noted that the patient was reportedly allergic to morphine. The mother of the children claims she was with her ex-husband when he advised hospital staff that he was allergic to morphine. The family is seeking unspecified financial damages for his wrongful death and the loss of financial care of the children. The hospital denies the charges and said that if negligence occurred, it was on the part of the patient, but a hospital spokesperson did not say how the patient may have been negligent.

Moving forward after a devastating loss is emotionally and financially draining for surviving family members. Medical malpractice cases, like this one, are long, drawn out, draining battles. Trying to make ends meet with ordinary cost of living expenses, medical expenses, funeral expenses, and the loss of income adds to the stress. When this happens, lawsuit funding may be a viable solution.

A legal funding company provides an advance based on its review of the case; a lawsuit cash advance is often approved with funding available within 24 – 48 hours. There are no up-front charges, no monthly payments, no credit checks, and no hassle. Best of all, repayment is contingent on the outcome of the lawsuit.
If you believe you or someone you love has been the victim of a prescription error or medication mistake, contact an experienced attorney. If you are seeking an attorney in your area, we would be happy to refer you to one from our nationwide database. Additionally, if you or your family is going through the emotional and financial stress from a medical malpractice or wrongful death, lawsuit funding may be the answer to help you through these times.

Maximize the Value of Your Lawsuit with Litigation Funding

October 9, 2014

We receive thousands of emails or phone calls from seriously injured victims of auto accidents who are worried about financial stability during the litigation process. Plaintiffs will usually express these concerns with their attorney and request a quick settlement. This is not in the plaintiff’s best interest because the defense will naturally offer a less than fair settlement. The attorney may mention litigation funding, but many people are unfamiliar with the term.

“I was in an auto accident when another driver ran a red light. Spinal cord injuries left me a paraplegic. I lost sensation and movement in both legs and suffer daily from severe pain. My attorney said my case would take up to a year to settle, but I didn’t have that kind of time. As the sole provider for a family of four, I was worried about the ongoing medical bills and how I would keep our home and put food on the table. Rather than settling for less than full case value, my attorney suggested I obtain a “lawsuit loan.” I was skeptical because I could not afford to make loan payments. I contacted Litigation Funding Corp. and learned that I would not be getting a loan, but rather a cash advance against my lawsuit. There was no need for a credit check and it didn’t matter that I was unable to work. Once I applied for funding, the process went quickly. I was able to pay my bills immediately and wait the ten months until my case settled for much more than the insurance company’s initial offer.”

Financial stress is not uncommon for plaintiffs in an auto accident lawsuit. In order to meet financial obligations, plaintiffs will often settle their case prematurely. Litigation Funding Corp. has helped many auto accident victims level the playing field and maximize the value of their case settlement. Litigation funding is not a loan that needs to be paid back in monthly installments. In fact, there are no fees or payments until you successfully settle. We don’t get paid until you get paid; if you lose your case, we completely waive repayment.

If you are being represented by an attorney, have filed a lawsuit, and awaiting trial or settlement of your case, you can apply for a litigation funding. If your case is approved, funds can be wired into your account in less than 48 hours.

In order for a plaintiff to have a legitimate case for a slip and fall lawsuit they must prove negligence. This is best achieved through an experienced personal injury attorney, but could take years before a settlement is reached. When the bills continuously pile up, one’s ability to wait for a fair settlement may not be an option without the help of litigation funding.

A woman alleges she was seriously injured when she slipped and fell at an Edwardsville, Illinois restaurant, due to a liquid substance on the floor near the server’s station. The suit alleges negligence for failing to keep patrons safe by allowing the substance to remain on the floor long enough for the woman to slip and fall. The plaintiff seeks more than $50,000 for medical expenses, pain and suffering.

Don’t Lose Control of your Lawsuit; Litigation Funding Could be the Answer

October 6, 2014

Wrongful death and serious injury accidents often cause immediate and long-term financial problems for victims and families. Litigation funding provides financial relief to victims in a pending lawsuit.

A head on collision between a Ford Taurus and a pick-up truck resulted in the death of a 33-year-old Arkansas woman. The accident happened when the driver of the pick-up truck suddenly lost control, crossed into the turn lane, then into the inside westbound lane before swerving into the outside westbound lane and hitting the Taurus head-on. The woman was killed instantly; two children, an 8- and 11-year old, in her car were not seriously injured. All involved were wearing seat belts. An investigation is ongoing, but it is currently unclear why the truck driver lost control of his vehicle. Was he distracted or was there a mechanical failure or defect?

When life is taken by negligence and irresponsible actions of another, no words can supply sufficient comfort to those who have lost a loved one. No matter how this investigation concludes, negligence can be a difficult concept to understand as well as to prove. It is imperative that the family of the deceased woman seek legal advice from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. They may be able to receive compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one and claim damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and funeral and burial expenses. Unfortunately, the family may be unable to pay the bills and additional expenses associated with the accident until a settlement is reached. In such a situation, they can turn to a lawsuit cash advance, known as litigation funding.

There are no costs or fees associated with a funding application. There are also no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. We review and approve requests for funding based on the strength of the case. All we require is a completed application and case documentation. If approved, Litigation Funding Corp. will wire money into a client’s account within 24 – 48 hours. When the case settles, we are repaid from the proceeds of the settlement, but if the case is lost, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety. Where else can you obtain a risk-free “lawsuit loan”?

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, Litigation Funding Corp. may be able to provide you the freedom to wait for the highest possible settlement. Apply online or call or by calling one of our funding specialists for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Construction Accident Lawsuit Funding Provides Relief When Facing a Pile of Debt

October 2, 2014

Construction accident lawsuit funding provides financial peace of mind for those seriously injured or who have lost a loved on in a construction related accident. If it is determined that the accident was caused by negligence, family members can hold the negligent parties responsible. Once a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit is underway, the financial impact on families may be too much to handle. Lawsuit funding might be the best solution to paying pressing bills while waiting for a fair settlement.

A construction worker was killed and another seriously injured after a large portion of a parking garage under construction collapsed, trapping the men under 55,000 pounds of concrete. There were approximately 20 workers at the garage at the time of the accident. An investigation is ongoing to determine what happened and if there was something wrong with the structure or the way it was taken apart that caused the collapse.

The families of these two men may want to talk to an experienced attorney who can help determine if negligence occurred, and if so, hold the negligent party responsible. The litigation process can take years especially if the insurance company is denying, delaying, and defending the claim. During this time, the victims may be struggling to pay medical and hospital expense, funeral and burial expenses, and ordinary household expenses, especially if the men were the sole breadwinners. Lawsuit funding provides short-term cash solutions to cover immediate financial needs and gives plaintiffs and their attorneys the time to pursue a case without financial risk. There are no monthly payments, no credit checks, and no employment verification. Approval of a lawsuit cash advance is based on the merit of the case only. When the case is settled, the plaintiff repays the cash advance, but if the plaintiff is us successful, the cash advance is waived in its entirety.

If you the victim of a construction site accident and need immediate cash while waiting for your case to settle, rather than accepting a less-than-favorable settlement offer, contact Litigation Funding Corp. The road to financial freedom is just click or phone call away.
