Family Accuses Chicago Hospital of Negligence Resulting in Death

December 21, 2016

A deceased man’s family has filed a wrongful death claim against a Chicago hospital, alleging negligence in medical care.

The suit alleges that the hospital failed to properly diagnose and treat a stroke the man suffered in December 2014, which allegedly resulted in respiratory failure, aspiration pneumonia and cardiac arrest a month later. The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs.

Moving forward after the death of a loved one is emotionally and often times, financially draining especially as a result of medical negligence. Filing, fighting, and winning a medical malpractice case is a complex process that can take a long time before it goes to court and/or culminates in a settlement or award. No one has limitless financial strength; victims may be living paycheck to paycheck or drowning in medical expenses, funeral expenses, and other financial obligations.

Litigation funding allows plaintiffs the ability to wait for a fair settlement without the financial pressure to settle too early for too little. A lawsuit cash advance is provided on a non-recourse basis which means that if the plaintiff loses the case, repayment of the advance is mull and void. We only get paid back when and if a successful recovery on the case is made.

Litigation Funding Corporation can’t bring back your loved one but, we can help put an end to your financial worries while you wait for your lawsuit to settle. The process for obtaining funding is as simple as filling out an online application or calling Litigation Funding Corporation toll-free at 1.866.LIT.FUND.

Don’t Let Your Financial Situation Deteriorate Until You Are Forced Into A Low Settlement Offer

December 7, 2016

An estate administrator recently filed a lawsuit alleging that a Chicago medical facility failed to properly care for her decedent. According to the complaint, the patient fell, which resulted in a fractured hip. Left untreated, the patients’ overall condition deteriorated, ultimately resulting in her death. The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount of more than $50,000.

A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for one’s loss. It may also be a means to improve safety and quality of care. But, wrongful death lawsuits usually take months even years before a settlement is reached. Those on a fixed income often don’t have the financial resources to keep their case going. That’s were litigation funding comes in.

Litigation Funding Corporation understands how difficult it can be to wait for a settlement to help pay medical bills, funeral expenses, as well as everyday living expenses. With a lawsuit cash advance, we can assist plaintiffs with these financial obligations. Funding approvals do not require the plaintiff to be employed, have good credit, or make monthly payments. No payments are made until the case successfully settles. Because it is a non-recourse cash advance, if the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is completely waived. Therefore, with litigation funding there is no need to settle too soon, for too little or struggle financially.

Visit Litigation Funding Corporation online or call us toll-free at 1-866-LIT-FUND to discuss your financial needs. Once we receive an application, we will review the request and specific case documentation from your attorney. If approved, Litigation Funding Corporation can send a check or wire funds directly into your account in less than 48 hours. It is that easy.

Nine-Year-Old Girl Killed in DUI Crash

November 10, 2016

A 25-year-old Chicago man was recently charged with multiple felonies including drunk driving after causing an accident which killed a young girl.

The alleged negligent driver was subsequently charged with leaving the scene of the accident, two counts of drunk driving, and four counts of aggravated drunk driving. There is a possibility his charges are to be upgraded.

The 9-year-old girl was in a minivan, driven by her mother. Two other girls, ages 10 and 12, friends of the 9-year-old, were also in the vehicle at the time of the accident. The mother was driving them home after attending a church event.

Eye witnesses recounted seeing the minivan heading north while the second vehicle involved in the crash, a Cadillac Deville, was heading south. By all reports the Cadillac was drifting in and out of the oncoming lanes. Just prior to the crash the minivan driver made a hard turn to the left to avoid a collision. However, the defensive maneuver was not successful and the Cadillac hit the passenger’s side of the minivan. The minivan continued on until it struck a building.

The Cadillac driver was seen fleeing the area. Police subsequently caught the individual later and determined he was under the influence of alcohol. The family of the young girl may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

The loss of a loved one brings with it extra expenses for the funeral and burial. The young girl’s family might wish to research litigation funding to aid their situation. To apply for a lawsuit loan, the plaintiffs would need to first hire an attorney. Once a lawyer of record is retained, the family may apply for pre-settlement funding.

When plaintiffs are cash strapped, applying for a lawsuit loan helps them financially to deal with monthly bills and other obligations.
