Pre-Settlement Lawsuit Funding May Help Leg Amputation Victim Fight for Justice

A West Virginia woman filed a medical malpractice lawsuit claiming doctor negligence for failure to accurately diagnose, care, advise, and observe her medical condition. The woman went to the ER complaining of pain and swelling in her lower right leg, at which time she was diagnosed with right leg edema and advised to follow up with her primary care physician (PCP). It wasn’t until her third follow-up visit that her PCP identified the presence of peripheral edema. He prescribed a diuretic, and ordered both a chest x-ray and an echo cardiogram. During a subsequent visit, she was diagnosed with peripheral vascular disease. After suffering foot pain and fearing an infection, the woman went to a different hospital. An examination of her right foot revealed that deep necrosis had occurred; her foot was emitting a foul smell and the necrosis had caused significant damage. A below-the-knee amputation of her right leg was performed the next day; a subsequent operation amputated her leg above-the-knee.

Despite the fact that our legal system can help plaintiffs receive the compensation deserved, it is usually not a quick and easy process. The emotional, mental and physical stress is enough to deal with; the last thing this woman needs to worry about is how to keep up with her financial obligations until a fair settlement is reached. In medical malpractice lawsuits such as this one, victims may be eligible for litigation funding. When justice is slow in coming, a lawsuit cash advance can be the means to stay financially afloat. All that a plaintiff needs is to hire an experienced personal injury lawsuit and have a case with merit.

Applying for litigation funding can be done online or with a quick phone call. Once a plaintiff completes our one-page application, documentation will be requested from the attorney. The review and decision process is typically handled within one day, and funds can be available for use within 24 – 48 hours of approval. There is no credit check or employment verification; we only care about the strength of the case. Repayment is only made after the plaintiff successfully settles; if the case is lost, repayment of the lawsuit cash advance is excused.
