You may have injuries as a result of a medical worker’s negligence to you. To get compensation for your financial and non-financial losses, you may decide to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. However, lawsuits can be expensive because of court costs and litigation fees. Litigation funding can help cover your legal costs throughout the case.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is negligence by a medical professional who fails to perform his duties at or above the standard of care required for his occupation, training, and experience. Under Michigan law, the injured party of a medical malpractice claim must state and prove the following:

  • The facts of the claim;
  • The stated of practice or care the medical professional must have;
  • How the medical professional his duty and standard of care;
  • What the medical professional should have done to comply with his professional standard of practice or care; and
  • The medical professional’s breach of duty was the legal cause of injury

What is Litigation Funding?

Litigation funding, also called legal funding, occurs when a third party financing or funding company pay for the cost of your litigation and other legal cost associated with your lawsuit. The third-party financing essentially assumes all the financial risk of a legal case.

The benefit of legal funding is that party in the lawsuit that receives financing, usually the plaintiff, does not have to pay back the financing company out if his own pockets. The funding is like having a lawsuit loan; however, the funding business only get their money back if the plaintiff settles the case or wins at trial. If you hire an attorney, funding goes to her to represent your lawsuit. Although the third-party financing pays for the attorney’s representation, you still control your case. The attorney must work your best interest and communicate your decision to other parties and the court throughout the litigation.

Paying Back Litigation Funding after a Medical Malpractice Settlement or Trial Win

In a medical action, the plaintiff may have damages that the seek compensation recovery. The damages may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical treatment
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of consortium

A person that files a medical malpractice lawsuit in Michigan law, may recover two types of damages – economic loss and noneconomic losses. Economic losses are the financial losses the injury party incurs because of the negligent act. They include , medical bills, lost wages, and lost of employment. State law defines noneconomic losses as loss due to pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment or companionship. Such losses at a limitation on how much the injury party can receive. Under state law, the amount for noneconomic losses cannot be more the $280,000 no matter now people are suing the medical professional or facility

$3.9M Lawsuit Filed Against Bar and Driver for Bizarre Hit-and-Run Death of Pedestrian

January 5, 2017

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a drunk driving auto accident, are represented by an attorney, and experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for litigation funding. If you qualify, Litigation Funding Corporation, a leader in the legal funding industry, may be able to provide a lawsuit cash advance within in 24 – 48 hours.

A wrongful death lawsuit was recently filed against a drunk driver, as well as the bar that served her that night she hit two pedestrians, killing one.

The plaintiff said he and his father were crossing the street on foot when they were struck by the driver of a Honda Civic. The impact of the crash knocked the older pedestrian into the windshield, then onto the luggage rack on the car’s roof. The driver did not stop; she drove 11 blocks before the man fell off. He died along the side of the road as the woman left the scene. The younger pedestrian (also the plaintiff) required surgery for injuries he sustained.

While the crash was initially hit-and-run, police were able to track down the driver, who later pled guilty and sentence to eight years.

The lawsuit alleges driver negligence for driving while intoxicated and failing to control her vehicle. The complaint contends the bar was negligent in serving her alcohol while she was visibly intoxicated.

A bar can be held accountable for a wrongful death caused by a drunk driver if there is evidence that the bar illegally served alcohol to the driver prior to the crash. This is called a dram shop claim, and it is meant to hold bar owners accountable when their illegal behavior causes severe injury and death. Dram shop liability laws vary widely by state so it is important to consult a personal injury attorney versed in this area of the law to determine if you have a valid case.

These types of lawsuits will take a long time to sort out; the bar will likely mount a vigorous defense and a settlement or trial could be months, if not years, away. By the time the plaintiff is able to see a settlement, he may have medical bills, funeral expenses, and other bills piled up. If he needs financial assistance during the litigation process, Litigation Funding Corporation is here to help.

Litigation Funding Corporation is a reputable legal finance company helping victims regain control of their lives and their finances while their attorney focuses on strengthening their case to obtain the compensation justly deserved. Litigation funding is based on the strength of the case; credit and employment are irrelevant.

It is easy to apply for litigation funding either online or by phone. If approved, the cash advance can be available in as little as 24 hours. Litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if you lose, repayment is excused.

If you have been in a drunk driving auto accident and experiencing financial hardship, contact Litigation Funding Corporation for a “staying power” advantage, so you can fight for justice and the compensation you deserve.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed in Electrocution Case

December 12, 2016

A widow of an electrocuted welder filed a wrongful death lawsuit, on the second-year anniversary of death.

A 33-year-old welder was unexpectedly electrocuted while he was on-the-job at a recycling center in October 2014. He was assisting several other workers in replacing the metal roof of an electrical transformer substation. The man’s widow filed a wrongful death lawsuit naming 24 defendants.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for pain and suffering sustained by the man prior to his death and compensation for his family and next of kin who suffered financial and emotional damages as a result of his sudden death. It is further alleged that the man believed the electrical line, which caused his death, had been de-energized. In addition the tool used to test for a live line was roughly 15 years old and should have been taken out of service after two years as required.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) investigated the welder’s death and the company he worked for was cited for nine alleged safety violations that contributed to his death. Eight violations were rated as serious and one categorized as a repeated offense. The company was hit was a penalty of $115,000 subsequently negotiated down to $63,250. There were also three other serious violations for failing to train electrical workers in safe workplace practices.

The widow would face a difficult time and the case may take a number of months or perhaps years to reach a settlement or go to trial. It is likely going to be difficult paying the rent or mortgage and there is very little money left over after paying for funeral and burial expenses.

October 19, 2016

Police are investigating a Locke Township, MI crash that killed an 11-year-old girl and seriously injured her two older siblings.

Just before 8 a.m., a 16-year-old girl was driving southbound when a northbound driver turned in front of her. After the vehicles collided, the teen’s car hit a tree. The 11-year-old died at the scene. The 16-year-old driver was taken by Life Flight to a nearby hospital and her 14-year-old brother was taken by ambulance. Both were listed in serious, but stable condition. The driver of the northbound vehicle was uninjured.

An investigation will help determine if one or both drivers were responsible. Many factors will be examined such as whether the driver traveling northbound failed to yield or if the teen driver was speeding. In the meantime, the family of the deceased and injured teens may wish to consult an experienced attorney to understand their rights. They may be able to seek compensation for funeral expenses, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages as a result of the accident.

Lawsuit Alleges Doctors Wrongly Prescribed Medication That Led To Woman’s Death

October 10, 2016

According to a 2006 study, medication errors harm approximately 1.5 million people in the United States every year. Medication errors can occur in many ways, such as if the doctor prescribes the wrong medication, the patient is harmed by a medication that was prescribed to treat a misdiagnosed condition, or the patient is given too much or too little of the drug. Side effects or damage may go undetected for months, even years. If the healthcare provider has failed to provide the accepted standard of care resulting in serious harm or death, the victim, or the family of a deceased loved one, should seek legal counsel to determine his/her rights.

A wrongful death lawsuit was recently filed by the family of a woman who allegedly died after taking medication prescribed by her doctors. According to the lawsuit, doctors failed to properly evaluate the woman’s condition and evaluate her medical history before prescribing Fluconazole, a medication that is used to treat fungal or yeast infections in the body. The complaint states that as a result, the woman suffered serious injuries, which led to severe deterioration in her health and ultimately her death. The lawsuit seeks damages greater than $50,000.

Although no amount of money can bring back their loved one or make up for the pain and suffering they have endured, this family has the right to be compensated. Unfortunately, receiving just compensation can take years, time which is often a financial burden for plaintiffs faced with medical and/or funeral and burial expenses. When a plaintiff does not have the financial resources to wait for justice, litigation funding is a great resource to see the case through to a fair and equitable settlement.

Litigation funding is a cash advance against the proceeds of a case. Without this option, desperate plaintiffs are often forced to settlements too soon, for too little. A plaintiff is eligible for funding once he/she has attorney representation. The next step is to complete an online application or call Litigation Funding Corporation. We will then request case documentation from the plaintiffs’ attorney to determine its strength and the funding amount. Approvals are typical provided within 24 – 48 hours because we do not need a credit check, employment verification, or collateral in order to fund a case. Best of all, there are no payments until the case settles, at which time we are repaid from the proceeds of the settlement. If the case is lost, the plaintiff is under no obligation to repay the cash advance.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Reveals Worker Partially Scalped, Asphyxiated

September 15, 2016

Francisca Gomez died on-the-job at Crookham Co. Seed. Her hair got caught in a piece of machinery.

According to the documents filed in this wrongful death lawsuit, Gomez was not the first person to have caught their hair in a moving piece of machinery at the seed plant or their clothing entangled in conveyors in other plant locations. One of the workers who previously had their clothing seized by a conveyor belt was Francisca Gomez’s daughter.

Just prior to her death, Gomez was cleaning a seed treater/picking table. As she crawled under the table to clean the area, her hair became wound up in the machine. According to the coroner, she died as a result of being partially scalped, sustaining significant blood loss and traumatic asphyxia.

The lawsuit alleges negligence on the part of the company for not adhering to operating manual instructions for the table that cautioned there were several steps to follow to ensure the safety of workers using the equipment. The instructions said the table was to be disabled and workers given hard hats to complete their job.

Allegedly, Gomez was intentionally not given a hard hat and told to clean the table while the system was operating. Furthermore a post-accident safety assessment revealed several safety concerns, hazards, violations and dangerous conditions.

Other allegations in the statement of claim suggest the employer did nothing to save Gomez and instead ordered others in the same area to keep working. Some were working a few short steps from the body after the accident. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a significant penalty for serious infractions in relation to the death of Francisca Gomez.

The Gomez family would have been faced with unexpected funeral and burial expenses in addition to trying to cope with their usual monthly financial obligations. They may wish to consider applying for a lawsuit cash advance.

A lawsuit loan is cash advanced to you to pay for your attorney. Also referred to as pre-settlement funding, legal funding, case financing or litigation funding, it helps you immediately while your lawyer works on your case to get it to court.

While many people wonder if a lawsuit loan is based on an individual’s credit rating, litigation funding is not based on an applicant’s credit history. The funds are sent to an approved plaintiff to cover legal and other expenses for their personal injury case, provided they have an attorney of record. If your case does not succeed, you keep the lawsuit loan with no strings attached. It’s certainly worth checking out.

Litigation Funding: A No-Risk Financial Lifeline For Personal Injury Plaintiffs

September 6, 2016

These types of cases often take a significant amount of time to move through proceedings, which can leave the injured person in a precarious financial situation. If the injured person is unable to work, has reduced income, or has expenses associated with care or disability, it may not be possible to wait until a settlement is reached before obtaining funds.

June 22, 2016

One of the most common medical mistakes is the misdiagnosis of symptoms or the failure to diagnose a medical condition.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Targets Bar In Drunk Driver Crash

December 1, 2015

With fatal auto accidents, lawsuits are often filed against a negligent driver, but in certain cases, local businesses can also be held liable. For example, a bar can be sued for a wrongful death caused by a drunk driver if there is evidence that the bar illegally served alcohol to the driver prior to the crash. This is called a dram shop claim, and it is meant to hold bar owners accountable when their illegal behavior causes severe injury and death.

The parents of a woman killed in a car crash have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a bar in Texas. The lawsuit alleges that the bar illegally sold alcohol to the driver of the car in which the woman was a passenger. According to the suit, the drunk driver spent hours prior to the accident drinking at the bar, making the bar equally liable. The suit also states that there is evidence that the driver’s blood-alcohol level was 3 times above the legal limit at the time of the crash. The driver and another passenger in the car also died.

In cases like these, a bar that allegedly served alcohol to visibly intoxicated and or underage persons should be held responsible if the intoxicated persons are involved in vehicle crashes after they leave the establishment. That’s where having an experience attorney can help a case and maximize recovery. But, a lawsuit such as this will take a long time to sort out; the bar will likely mount a vigorous defense and a settlement or trial could be months, if not years, away. If there comes a time when the family cannot financially wait to seek justice, litigation funding can help.

Litigation funding would allow the family precious time to wait for a fair and equitable settlement; if they desperately need money now, the only other alternative may be to settle a valuable case for pennies on the dollar to pay their bills. With litigation funding, the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. There is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. The application takes less than five minutes; approvals are often within 24 – 48 hours. Litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if you lose, repayment is excused.

Call Litigation Funding Corporation today for a free, no-obligation consultation. We are here to assist with legal funding needs of innocent victims to help ensure they receive every penny of damages that they are entitled to receive.
