Every day, millions of people seek medical assistance whether in a clinic, doctor’s office, emergency room or other healthcare facility. Patients expect the best possible care. When that standard care is not met, serious or fatal consequences can occur.
On December 26, 2013, a thirty-two-year-old man went to a Houston clinic suffering from a fever. He was given antibiotics and sent home. Later that day, his conditioned worsened and he was transported by ambulance to an area hospital. Forty-five minutes after arrival, treatment began. Why the delay?
According to a recent wrongful death lawsuit, the hospital staff was more concerned with how the bills would be paid. The lawsuit claims that the delay cost the man his life. A medical examiner confirmed that the cause of death was anaphylactic shock.
Medical malpractice is something no one should ever have to endure. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical negligence, you should consult an experience attorney to understand your legal options and fight for the justice you deserve.
Given the nature of this wrongful death lawsuit, it may be a long time before the case goes to court and/or culminates in a settlement or award. Tragedies like this often have a financial impact, especially if the family’s principal means of support is gone. No one has limitless financial strength; injury victims and/or surviving family members may qualify for litigation funding, a proven to be a godsend in such cases.
The strategy behind litigation funding is that it allows plaintiffs to pay the bills while waiting for a just settlement rather than settling early to avoid further losses. This non-recourse cash advance is based on case strength alone. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments; there are no credit checks or employment verification. Furthermore, no money is repaid until the case successfully settles, and if the plaintiff loses, they keep the cash advance free and with no obligation.
All that is needed to be considered for funding is to complete a one-page application online or over the phone. Next, we review case documentation obtained from your attorney. If the case is approved for funding, we will prepare a contract for signature and wire funds within 24 – 48 hours.
We can’t undo the negligence; we can’t rewind the clock so that it never happened. What we can do is help you to survive the financial turmoil that was caused until a settlement is reached. Don’t let a negative financial picture force you to settle for less than you deserve. Contact the legal funding experts at Lawsuit Financial.
