Infected Bed Sore Causes Elderly Woman’s Death

August 23, 2010

This case went to trial in Sacramento, California and resulted in a jury award of $29.1 million. The daughter of the elderly woman who died brought this suit against a local nursing home.

In March of 2005, the 79-year old woman slipped and fell while in the home’s care. She died in a hospital on October 7th, 2010. Her daughter filed a wrongful death suit that stated the nursing home had not properly treated or monitored her mother’s hip, nor dealt with her bed sores. The reason? Allegedly, the nursing home was grossly understaffed. Were the owners of the home were more interested in profits than adequate patient care?

The bed sore developed because the woman, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s, was not repositioned, regularly, as required in situations like this. This was a tough elder abuse wrongful death case and the daughter waited a long time for justice. She did not have to wait alone, struggling financially. Cases like this one are excellent candidates for a lawsuit cash advance.
A pre-settlement funding application is easy and may be done by phone or done online; whichever works best for the plaintiff. Litigants do not have to pay upfront fees or make monthly payments. It is no hassle litigation funding and it arrives within 24-48 hours after the application has been approved.

The strategic advantage of a ‘lawsuit loan’ is that it provides the plaintiff the financial strength to await for a reasonable offer from the insurance company or defendant. That means the ability to refuse all low ball settlement offers on cases worth much more than the insulting offer.

Lawsuit funding
is used by most people to pay their medical bills, other costs related to their situation, and ordinary but important bills and expenses that accumulate because of injury and/or disability. Repayment is contingent upon case outcome; if you lose the case, you do not have to pay the money back. Thus, this is no-risk legal finance.
