Texas Nursing Home Resident Allegedly Beaten by Nursing Assistant

October 31, 2018

The family of a nursing home resident planned to celebrate their father’s 84th birthday, but when they arrived at the facility they found him beaten and bruised. Although staff said the cause was an incident with the man’s roommate, police believe the resident may have been beaten by a nursing assistant.

According to an investigation earlier this year by Texas Health and Human Services, 12 violations were cited at the nursing home — seven were “life safety violations,” and five were health violations where inspectors stated, “the facility did not protect each resident from all abuse, physical punishment, and being separated from others.” Several violations have allegedly yet to be remedied. The facility was also cited because it “failed to have written rules against mistreating, neglecting, and abusing residents, and mishandling residents’ property.”

The family may wish to seek compensation for their father’s injuries by filing a personal injury lawsuit. However, they may find that they are unable to cope financially while waiting out the litigation process against high-powered defendants. In that case, litigation funding may be a good option.

Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance for life needs when plaintiffs may not be able to find money elsewhere, such as family or friends or a traditional bank loan. It can mean the difference between paying the rent or facing eviction. A lawsuit cash advance can also level the playing field until justice is served.

A seriously injured plaintiff who has hired an attorney, and has a strong case with merit is eligible for litigation funding. Applying for a cash advance against a future settlement is fast and easy. There is no cost to apply and no up-front or out-of-pocket expenses. Litigation Funding Corporation will work with your attorney to review your case and reach a funding decision in less than 48 hours.

Pre-settlement funding, or a lawsuit loan, is a non-recourse cash advance tied to the personal injury claim. Repayment is only due once the case successfully settles. The attorney handles the repayment through the case proceeds. If there is no recovery, repayment of the lawsuit loan is completely waived, making it a virtually risk-free cash advance for the plaintiff.

If you have a personal injury case and questions regarding pre-settlement funding, call Litigation Funding Corporation, toll-free at 1-866-548-3863.

Dog Bites: Serious Injuries Require Serious Litigation

May 9, 2010

Been bitten by a dog? Did you know that you have the legal right to ask for compensation for your injuries? Those costs may include treating the bite, medications, and shots, lost wages and pain and suffering. In most states the law is very clear about who is held liable when you get bitten. There are some variations from place to place, but your personal injury lawyer can help you sort that out when you speak to him or her.

In most states you can ask for compensation from any person whose negligence caused you to be attacked, any person who keeps a dog knowing full well it has a history of biting or any person who doesn’t have their dog on a leash, restraint or properly confined. In many cases a lawsuit like this varies because it depends on where you were attacked and how seriously you were injured. Serious dog bites require filing a personal injury claim for compensation. This is usually done with the help of a lawyer who will be able to get you justice. You should know that the lawyer will be dealing with the other person’s insurance company, so he may get the run around. That won’t last for long, because the attorney knows how to deal with things like that. They may try to low ball you, but your attorney won’t let that happen.

If you have been very seriously injured, or your child has been badly bitten and needs some serious medical care, you may want to find out more about litigation funding. Getting a lawsuit cash advance would let you take care of yourself or your child, pay your bills – all of your bills – and then be able to wait for justice.
While the insurance companies are playing around, trying to get you to accept less, a lawsuit funding will enable you to hold out for a just settlement or court verdict. There is no sense in losing dollars to get given pennies.
