Medical malpractice cases are hard fought, difficult cases that can take years to resolve. If victims require litigation funding, it is important to know that Lawsuit Financial Corporation is one of the few legal funding companies that provide capped “lawsuit loans”. Victims who use lawsuit financing services need to consider this important factor when seeking funding on a piece of litigation that could take several years to settle.
A Louisiana family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a doctor and healthcare clinic alleging medical malpractice led to the death of their loved one.
According to the claim, the patient underwent a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy on July 5, 2012. A drain was inserted at the surgery site to help with draining bodily fluids. The drain was removed the following day and the patient was released from the clinic. He was readmitted on the 7th of July, with complaints of nausea and pain. Subsequently, he underwent an emergency exploratory laparotomy and was sent to ICU when hemorrhaging was found. The man lost consciousness and experienced cardiopulmonary failure two days later. He was pronounced dead that evening, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleges the defendant was negligent for failing to take the necessary steps to save the patient, failing to adhere to the appropriate standard of care and failing to properly monitor the patient.
The plaintiffs are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages.
When an injury occurs as a result of medical negligence, the costs can be exorbitant including medical bills, long-term care, even funeral and burial expenses and emotional damages. It may also result in the loss of earnings. For many victims, filing a medical malpractice lawsuit can produce financial compensation for damages incurred.
While a medical malpractice attorney helps the plaintiffs fight for their rights to a fair settlement or just verdict, litigation funding can help them remain financial stable until fair compensation is received.
When a plaintiff is dealing will the loss of income and mounting unpaid bills, litigation funding can be the emergency cash needed to get through the litigation process. Unlike a bank loan, a funding decision is based on case strength, not credit or employment status. Once case documentation is reviewed and the strength of the case determined, approvals can be available within 24 – 48 hours. No money is owed until the case successfully settles, at which time repayment is made from the proceeds of the case. If the family doesn’t recover compensation in the case, Lawsuit Financial will completely excuse the obligation to repay the advance.
