The premature death of a loved one is difficult for any family member. When the death is the result of a preventable medical error, there are usually many unanswered questions. Filing, fighting, and achieving a favorable settlement will usually take years, time not only emotionally and physically draining, but financially devastating as well. Funeral expenses and medical bills alone can become too much especially when family members are faced with lost income. To avoid debt or an early settlement, plaintiffs are turning to pre-settlement lawsuit funding.
It took seven years before justice was served following the death of a 49-year-old woman who was left brain dead in a Georgia hospital emergency room. In July 2006, the woman was suffering an asthma attack when she was rushed to the hospital via ambulance. When the woman arrived at the ER gasping for air and unable to speak, it took at least seven minutes for her to be seen. In an attempt to open her airways, a breathing tube was inserted down her throat – not by the attending physician, but rather the resident physician who made six failed attempts and did not follow hospital protocol. As a result, the woman suffered severe and irreversible brain damage due to lack of oxygen. The family eventually made the tough decision to take their loved one off life support. A jury recently awarded the family $4.7 million.
During the past seven years, this family may have experienced mounting bills while waiting for a fair settlement. A lawsuit cash advance may have helped pay the medical bills, funeral expenses, or any other expenses. There are no restrictions on how lawsuit funding can be used. A cash advance is contingent upon the successful outcome of the case; if the plaintiff does not successfully settle, there is absolutely no obligation to repay the advance. There is no credit check so plaintiffs with little or no credit still qualify.
