Knee Surgery Results In Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of personal injury and wrongful death cases in the United States. While victims can seek compensation for their loss, the lengthy and intimidating legal process can be discouraging, especially for those struggling financially. This is where lawsuit funding can help. A lawsuit cash advance helps plaintiffs survive the immediate mounting expenses while leveling the playing field against corporate defenses.

On April 11, 2012, a 51-year-old man underwent knee surgery at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital. Eleven days later he died from complications of a post-surgery infection. In 2014, his family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Bozeman Deaconess Health Services, Alpine Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, Livingston Healthcare and four doctors.

According to the suit, the patient returned home from the hospital two days after surgery at which time Livingston Healthcare provided in-home nursing care and physical therapy. Around April 17, the man starting showing symptoms of a post-operative infection, yet, the home healthcare nurses and physical therapist didn’t recognize the signs nor did they recommend that he seek immediate medical attention. When the patient and his wife reported the symptoms to a doctor at Alpine Orthopedics, again the man was not urged to visit the emergency room. On April 21, when the discomfort worsened, he went to the ER at Deaconess. While there, two doctors failed to inspect his post-op wound, didn’t properly diagnose the obvious origin of the infection, didn’t recognize that the patient was being over hydrated, and didn’t recognize the urgency of his condition, according to the lawsuit. He died on April 22 of pulmonary edema, a condition in which the lungs fill with fluid, as well as complications from the infection and fluid overload.

While the medical examiner concluded that the man had died of heart failure, the suit says that an electrocardiogram done just moments before his death revealed no indication of heart failure. The complaint alleges negligence and negligent training and supervising, specifically that staff failed to diagnose the problem before it was too late. The lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount in damages for lost future income, medical care and funeral expenses, as well as damages for emotional suffering for the man’s wife and son. The lawsuit got underway earlier this month with jury selection.

Moving forward after the death of a loved one is emotionally and often times, financially draining especially as a result of medical negligence. Lawsuit funding is ideal in a circumstance such as this. It allows a grieving family time to wait for a fair and equitable settlement rather than risking their credit or accepting a less-than-favorable offer just to pay their bills.

The process of obtaining funding is simple with our easy online application. Plaintiffs can also call our office toll-free at 1-877-377-7848 for a free, no obligation consultation. Once we receive a funding application, our underwriters will evaluate the case and if approved, discuss tailored funding options for the specific situation. We can usually do so within 24 – 48 hours.

Lawsuit Financial: Where Auto Accident Victims Go For Financial Help

Suffering a personal injury from an auto accident is bad enough, but when the insurance company refuses to negotiate or settle your claim in good faith for the sole purpose of protecting its own profits, the impact to you can be devastating. Don’t be bullied by the insurance company’s deny, defend, and delay tactics. Seek justice with the help of an experienced auto accident attorney.

What if the case drags on and you are struggling to pay bills and replace lost wages? You may lack the credit history to qualify for a traditional bank loan. Even if you did, monthly payments would only add to the already stretched monthly budget. How do you and your family survive? Apply for lawsuit funding from Lawsuit Financial.

Lawsuit funding is a great option for plaintiffs who need fast cash to pay life’s necessities – mortgage, rent, car payments, and medical expenses. It allows a case to proceed through the legal process without pressure to settle early and attempts to ensure improved case results.

Generally, there are two kinds of lawsuit funding options; pre-settlement funding is provided prior to case settling while post-settlement lawsuit funding is provided after case settlement and before the plaintiff is paid. Under either scenario, funding is approved based solely on the strength of the case, and is not repaid until the case settles favorably. Litigation funding poses no risk; if you lose your case, you owe nothing.

If your case has not been settled, consider lawsuit funding from Lawsuit Financial, We do not require a credit check, employment verification, or monthly fees. Once you apply for either type of funding, we will request supporting case documents, such as an accident report from your attorney. After reviewing your case, if approved, a contract will be prepared for you and your attorney’s signature. Funds can be wired into your account in as little as 24 hours after an executed contract.

Lawsuit funding is not for everyone but it is a great resource that allows plaintiffs to bridge the financial gap until an equitable settlement is reached. For more information on lawsuit funding, contact Lawsuit Financial toll-free at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) or visit us online.

Lawsuit Financial is one of the most experienced lawsuit finance companies in the marketplace. Mark Bello, founder and CEO, is a trial lawyer veteran, who regularly consults with plaintiffs and attorneys to discuss whether litigation funding is the right fit for them.

Paying Your Bills While a Personal Injury Lawsuit is Pending

If you have suffered serious injuries in an auto accident by no fault of your own, you may wish to file a personal injury lawsuit. This can include compensation for medical expenses, vehicle damage, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses resulting from the accident. The litigation process oftentimes takes several months, even years, but insurance companies do not care how long it takes. In fact, they will deny, delay and defend the claim as long as possible. When this happens, a plaintiff’s financial situation can become strained, especially when injuries mean the victim is unable to work, resulting in lost income. A cash-strapped plaintiff will often times accept a smaller settlement just to make ends meet. A better option would be lawsuit funding.

As long as you have attorney representation and a strong case, you are automatically eligible for a lawsuit cash advance. Lawsuit Financial offers a quick and easy application process, one that requires no credit checks or employment verification. After obtaining case documentation, we can make a funding decision within 24 - 48 hours. If approved, the money can be used to pay the mortgage, car payments, utilities, medical expenses, or anything you wish; there is no limitation on how you spend the cash advance.

Lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning we are only repaid once you successfully settle your case, at which time your attorney will pay us from the proceeds of your settlement. If you lose your case, we completely waive repayment. You will never pay us a dime out of your own pocket.

Lawsuit funding is designed to be a funding source of last resort. If you have a pending claim, have exhausted all other means of obtaining funds, and are suffering financial hardship, you may wish to apply for lawsuit funding. Call our office or complete our online application. One of our experienced funding representatives will be happy to assist you.

Nine-Year-Old North Carolina Boy Dies In Single-Vehicle DUI Crash

When a drunk driver injures or kills another person in an auto accident, the victim’s family has a legal right to seek compensation for financial recovery of their losses, including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost present and future wages, and pain and suffering. Lawsuit funding can help pay the bills in the interim so plaintiffs can fight for the compensation deserved.

A wreath with a black ribbon now hangs on a telephone pole as a small reminder of a 9-year-old boy who lost his life to a drunk driver.

The child was riding in a Dodge Caravan with his father’s finance when the woman ran off the road and hit a stop sign before slamming into a utility pole. The force of impact split the pole in half. The young boy was taken to Duke’s Children’s Hospital in North Carolina where he died from injuries sustained. The driver suffered minor injuries. Neither the driver nor the child were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The woman has been charged with driving under the influence, but also faces one felony count of child neglect. She also has a history of driving infractions, including driving under the influence.

The family has set up a GoFundMe account to help the family pay for Julian’s medical and funeral expenses.

Although it may be difficult for surviving family members to think about taking legal action following the loss of a loved, a wrongful death lawsuit is the only way to hold the negligent driver accountable for her actions and for the family to seek compensation for damages.
The loss of a family member almost always results in financial difficulty for the victim's survivors. Unfortunately, a lawsuit can still take months, even years before a settlement is reached.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) said the baseball size nut may have fallen off one if its water trucks, then was kicked up by passing traffic. Caltrans is cooperating with the CHP as they finish their investigation.

Litigation funding is financial assistance that can help innocent victims pay funeral and burial expenses, monthly bills, or daily living expenses, while allowing their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice. Funding is provided on-recourse cash advance, meaning that it is paid back only out of the settlement of the case. If you don’t win the case, the cash advance does not have to be repaid.

Suffering injuries are the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; don’t succumb to a financial hardship. If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident, have a pending claim and are represented by an attorney on a contingency basis, you may be eligible for litigation funding.

The application process is free and easy and there is no cost to review your case and determine your funding needs. Funding is based on the merits of the case, not on credit-worthiness or employment history verification. If you qualify, cash can often be available in as little as 24 hours.

To determine if you qualify for litigation funding, complete our online application or call Lawsuit Financial toll-free at 877-377-7848 for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Town Settles High Speed Police Chase Lawsuit That Resulted In Two Deaths

The town of Rockport has settled two lawsuits that were filed after a high speed chase last year.

A part-time police officer was in pursuit of a speeding Subaru station wagon driven by Caleb Byras (17) just before midnight on December 5, 2015. Kara Brewer (16) and Emily Vitale (16) were passengers in a vehicle. The officer eventually stopped the pursuit when Byars failed to pull over. Shortly thereafter, Byras lost control of the vehicle, went off the road and crashed into a tree, with such force that the car split into two pieces. It was reported that he had been travelling at 110 mph. Byras and Brewer were killed instantly; Vitale was seriously injured.

The families of the two passengers filed lawsuits against the town, the police department and the officer involved in the chase. The claim on behalf of Ms. Brewer contended that the Rockport police officer’s decision to engage in a high-speed chase through three towns was negligent, violated police policy and caused the death of the teen. The Brewer lawsuit sought $5 million. The Vitale complaint said that it was unreasonable for the officer to engage in the chase, and that the pursuit violated a number of police practices. The Vitale family sought an unspecified amount to cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and emotional anguish. Both claims pointed out that according to the local department’s policy only full-time law enforcement officers may participate in a high-speed pursuit. As part of a settlement, the town paid $200,000 to Brewer’s estate and $100,000 to Vitale.

People who are injured or lost a loved one as a result of a high-speed police chase are victims of negligence and, as such, can pursue the police department and the negligent driver for injuries suffered as the result of an accident. An attorney who specializes in this type of litigation is recommended. Once a lawsuit has been filed, the plaintiffs may qualify for auto accident lawsuit funding to assist with paying the bills while the litigation winds its way through our civil justice system.

Although these cases took less than a year to settle, it doesn’t mean the plaintiffs didn’t struggle financially. Once the lawsuits were filed, these families could have applied for a lawsuit cash advance. Lawsuit Financial is a legal finance company that can offer this service without a credit check, employment verification or monthly payments. Repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case. Furthermore, there are no monthly payments. When the case settles, the cash advance with interest is repaid. But, if the case is lost, repayment is not required. Request for funding applications can be approved as quickly as 24 hours. Once a contract is signed, the money is sent via overnight mail or direct deposit.

If you are in a pending personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, use our financial strength to wage your legal battle in order to wait for the best settlement possible. Contact Lawsuit Financial today.

Lawsuit Alleges Delayed Diagnosis Led to Hemorrhagic Stroke

There are far too many situations where medical negligence on the part of a healthcare professional causes harm to the patient. When this happens the injured person can file a lawsuit to recover compensation for his/her loss. Unfortunately waiting for a settlement can take months or years. During this time, the plaintiff may run out of cash, but that doesn’t mean the bills stop coming in. For those who simply cannot endure a long litigation process seeking lawsuit funding is a viable option.

A Putnam County, West Virginia woman filed a lawsuit alleging that her doctor misdiagnosed stroke symptoms, leaving her with paralysis and brain damage. According to the complaint, the plaintiff sought treatment from Dr. Christopher Bowman on May 9, 2014 due to headaches and nausea. Dr. Bowman allegedly told the plaintiff, who has a history of hypertension, that she was suffering from a virus and that she would feel better soon. The lawsuit claims that when the woman started feeling dizzy, she texted Bowman who allegedly said, again, that he was not concerned and still insisted she would feel better in a few days. However, after suffering weakness to her right side, the plaintiff went to the emergency room of CAMC Teays Valley Hospital where she was diagnosed with a hemorrhagic stroke. As a result of her illness, the plaintiff claims she suffered right-sided paralysis, speech and language impairment, and cognitive defects, some of which may be permanent.

The lawsuit names Dr. Bowman and his employer, Dunbar Medical Associates PLLC, as defendants in the medical malpractice case. The plaintiff seeks a jury trial and an undisclosed amount in damages.

Filing a medical malpractice lawsuit can hold the wrongdoer(s) accountable, but hospitals and other healthcare institutions often have abundant resources, and can pressure plaintiffs to accept a low settlement by prolonging the litigation process. A better option is to secure a lawsuit cash advance.

Lawsuit Financial represents plaintiffs, such as this woman, left devastated by negligent doctors or other medical professionals. Our legal funding services help combat mounting bills, whether medical expenses, mortgage payments or daily household expenses, during a potentially long legal battle. Though we don’t require a credit check, employment history, or collateral of any kind, the best part about our legal finance services is that repayment is only made if, and when, a settlement is reached. If the lawsuit is unsuccessful, repayment of the cash advance is completely waived.

If you have been seriously injured due to a medical misdiagnosis or other medical error, have attorney representation and a pending lawsuit and wish to apply for lawsuit funding, complete our online application or call our office at 1-877-377-7848. After receiving a funding application, we will request case documentation from your attorney so we can evaluate the merits of the case. Approvals are often times made within 24 hours. Once approved, we can wire transfer or overnight mail the funds. It is just that easy to obtain lawsuit funding when you need it most, so why wait?

Family Seeks Answers After Toddler Is Suffocated Under Bean Bag Chair At Day Care

A Utah mother should be planning her son’s 2nd birthday party. Instead, she is planning his funeral after the toddler suffocated at a daycare center.

West Jordan Police said the little boy was underneath a bean bag chair when a daycare employee accidentally sat on it while reading a book to the rest of the children. When the child was discovered, he wasn’t breathing. CPR was performed and he was rushed to a local children’s hospital, where he died a few hours later. An investigation is underway; no charges have yet been filed.

The mother is seeking answers. How could the child go unnoticed? How could the employee not feel the toddler under the chair?

While the police investigation is underway, the child’s family may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Though no amount of money can ever replace a lost loved one, especially a young child who will never attend school, play sports, get married, raise a family, and grow old, a lawsuit is a means for the family to receive compensate for their loss. It will also help ensure that an incident like this does not happen to another child. At this facility, it may mean stricter guidelines, more training of employees and better oversight into the daily operations.

According to news reports, the child center has been in violation twice in the last five years – one for lack of supervising children on their patio and another for having a hole in the fence where a child could easily escape.

An attorney for this family can seek compensation for the pain and suffering of the little boy prior to death; medical expenses prior to death; funeral and burial expenses; and loss of love, care, companionship, guidance, and nurturing that the victim would have provided. Once the lawsuit is filed, if they do not have the financial means to withstand a lengthy litigation, they may want to consider lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance that may help this grief-stricken family focus on healing, rather than calculating expenses or worrying about how they will pay their bills. The money can be used for just about anything, but is commonly used to pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses and other pressing bills while their attorney seeks appropriate justice.

Applying for lawsuit funding is easy online or by phone, and takes less than five minutes. The only qualification is a strong case. We charge no upfront fees and no monthly payments; there are no credit checks or employment verifications. After case-evaluation, if approved for a lawsuit cash advance, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, if the case is lost, we relinquish the cash advance; the plaintiff owes nothing.

If you are interested in receiving a lawsuit cash advance against your wrongful death case, contact Lawsuit Financial today and learn how we can empower you to pursue your case to get the maximum settlement you deserve.

Distracted Driver Took The Life Of A Motorcyclist On Labor Day

Everyone will agree that multi-tasking has become a way of life; behind the wheel is no exception. Distracted driving has become so common that not a day goes by where we don’t see hundreds of motorists doing everything but what they should – drive. The result is a staggering number of serious and fatal auto accidents. Even the most experienced drivers can cause a crash if they take their eyes off the road, if only for a few seconds.

A motorcyclist was killed on Labor Day after he was struck by a pick-up truck near St. Clair Missouri.

The man was heading west on Highway 30 when the driver of a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado crossed the center line and struck the motorcycle, ejecting the man. A truck then hit the motorcycle from behind. Debris from the crash struck the windshield of another vehicle. The motorcyclist was transported by air ambulance to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. No other injuries were reported. Police said the driver of the Silverado was distracted at the time of the crash.

Holding a distracted driver accountable for a crash involves collecting evidence such as photos of the crash site, cell phone records and witness statements. It is important to consult an experienced auto accident attorney who understands the necessary steps and thus recover compensation for damages.

After a lawsuit has been filed, the plaintiff may wish to inquire about litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance while waiting for an equitable verdict or a fair settlement.

Litigation funding is a viable choice for cash-strapped plaintiffs who have no means of paying medical and/or funeral expenses and other expenses resulting from the accident, let alone cover daily household needs. Applicants do not need to have good credit or be employed because funding is based solely on the strength of the case.

Once a funding application is received, we will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation in order to determine the merits of the case and the cash advance we can provide. Typically, funding decisions are made in 24 – 48 hours, and the money is sent via direct deposit or overnight mail.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident caused by a distracted driver, your personal funds are running out, and your case has not settled, you may want to consider litigation funding. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning you owe us nothing until your attorney recovers a settlement on your behalf. If you lose your case, you owe us nothing.

Litigation funding is also available for other cases, such as medical malpractice, slip and falls, premise liability and defective and dangerous products, to name a few. Call Lawsuit Financial today for a free, no-obligation consultation. We look forward helping you make the best financial decisions to help your case.

Nursing Home Negligence Lawsuit Filed After Patient Falls To His Death From a Fifth-Floor Window

Nursing home neglect refers to the failure of a nursing home to provide the care and attention that its residents deserve. When that happens, victims or their loved ones may seek to hold the nursing home liable for harm.

The administrator of a deceased man’s estate has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Glenbridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre, Ltd., alleging negligence caused the patient’s death. According to the claim, due to inadequate supervision the man fell to his death from a fifth-floor window. The suit also states that the nursing home was negligent by allowing the window fixture to remain in a hazardous condition. The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $50,000.

If you see signs of abuse or neglect of your loved one in a nursing home setting, you may have the right to take legal action. Filing a lawsuit against a nursing home can be the most effective way to seek just compensation, hold the nursing home accountable for the damage and, ultimately, protect others from suffering similar nursing home abuse or neglect in the future. But, filing a nursing home lawsuit is a complex process that can easily take two or more years to reach a settlement. This can often lead families to become financially distressed.

After a lawsuit has been filed by an experienced attorney, if you are in need of quick cash, consider lawsuit funding. A lawsuit cash advance can give you the cash you need now to regain control and get your life back on track. Use it for medical expenses, living expenses, funeral expenses or any other financial need; there are no restrictions on how the money is used. Because lawsuit funding is not a traditional loan, factors such as employment history and financial standing are not required. The only concern is the validity of the lawsuit and the likelihood of its success. The best part is that with lawsuit funding comes there is no risk to you - we are repaid only if you win the case.

Airborne Boat Critically Injures Two In Hit-and-Run Crash

Two New Jersey men are fighting for their lives after being critically injured by a hit-and-run ski boat that slammed into the rear of their Bayliner on Greenwood Lake.

The men and their wives were en route to the Sportsmans Marina to dock when the Bayliner was struck at the stern about 8:30 p.m. It is believed they were hit from behind by a ski boat from behind which then went airborne, flew over the length of the 18-foot Bayliner and struck the men in the head before roaring off. Despite the damage to the Bayliner, the women were able to render immediate aid to their husbands and navigate the boat back to the dock. The men were flown by police helicopter to an area trauma center where they remain in critical condition. Their wives were treated for non-life threatening injuries. The New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau is seeking the public's assistance in identifying the operator of a hit-and-run boat. Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Shane Diehl of the Carteret Station at 732-541-0491.

Why would the negligent driver of the boat flee the scene? Since it was the Labor Day weekend, alcohol may have been a factor. Drinking while boating is one of the leading causes of serious or fatal boating accidents; it is just as dangerous as drinking while driving an automobile. Other accidents on our waters are the result of operator inattention, an inexperienced boater, reckless handling, and speeding.

When any boating accident happens due to the negligence of another, the victims should consult an experienced boating accident attorney. A boat accident lawsuit can be complex and take years to settle. During this time, victims may face financial hardship and be left with medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and out of pocket expenses. One way to ease the financial burden during the litigation process is with a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding allows victims time to wait for a just settlement rather than be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar just because of financial difficulties. Applying for funding takes less than five minutes and cases can be approved in less than 48 hours. Why? Because we fund strictly on the strength of the case. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Our funding is also provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning the cash advance is only repaid if the plaintiff successfully wins the case. If the case is lost, there is no repayment requirement.

Never settle a valuable case too early for too little; consult a lawsuit funding expert first. Let lawsuit funding give you financial peace before your case settles. If you are in a pending boating accident lawsuit and need cash to help you bridge the gap between the time of your accident and your ultimate settlement, Lawsuit Financial is the one to call. We provide free case evaluations, and for approved cases, cash in hand within 48 hours.

Lawsuit Funding Removes Financial Worries While You Wait For The Settlement You Deserve

An auto accident is one of the scariest things that can happen to anyone. Countless people become victims due to the negligence of another driver. The reason may be driving under the influence, texting while driving, chatting with passengers, fatigue or a host of other distractions. Whatever the case, victims should avoid accepting a settlement before speaking to an experienced attorney. Insurance companies and responsible parties only seek to protect their own bottom line. Their sole job is to get the victim to accept the smallest possible settlement. In most cases, the settlement won’t be enough to cover all current and future needs.

An attorney will discuss the facts, protect your rights and get you the maximum compensation for damages and losses. Unfortunately, the more complicated the personal injury lawsuit, the longer it usually takes to reach a fair settlement. What do you do in the meantime? How will the medical bills get paid? Where will you get the money to replace your car? For many, income and savings can’t keep up with the bills especially for those unable to work. Faced with significant financial hardship, some plaintiffs will seek help from family or friends, while others will be forced to settle for less than deserved just to avoid financial ruin. A more viable solution may be lawsuit funding.

Unless you have been in this situation, you may not be familiar with such terms as lawsuit funding, litigation funding, pre-settlement funding, lawsuit loan and legal financing. So what is it and how does it work?

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against a pending lawsuit to help plaintiffs avoid foreclosure, car repossession, and mounting late fees on credit cards. By obtaining lawsuit funding, plaintiffs can alleviate the financial stress without compromising the compensation rightfully deserved. Simply put, lawsuit funding helps relieve the financial pressures and reduce the need to accept a settlement too early for too little. When plaintiffs aren’t stressing about their finances, it’s easier to focus on recovering from the injuries while their attorney focuses on obtaining a fair settlement.

Although it may appear to be like a bank loan, lawsuit funding is actually a non-recourse cash advance against your expected settlement. Poor credit? No worries! No job? No worries! No money to make monthly payments? No worries! The only condition to receive funding is attorney representation and a case with merit. After receiving an application and basic documentation, our underwriters review the case. If the application is approved, funding can usually be provided within 24 – 48 hours via direct deposit or overnight mail. Best of all, repayment is conditioned on winning the case. Nothing is paid until you win your case at which time repayment is made from the settlement. If for any reason you fail to win your lawsuit, you would owe nothing; the cash advance does not have to be repaid.

If you are currently involved in an auto accident lawsuit and struggling to pay your bills or put food on the table, lawsuit funding may be a viable option. The first step is to complete a no-cost, no-obligation application or call Lawsuit Financial to speak with an experienced funding representative. We would be happy to provide a free, no-obligation consultation. We look forward to providing the best legal funding advice to help you make a smart decision about your case.
