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 financing. Victims who utilize lawsuit financing services need to consider this important factor when seeking funding on a piece of litigation that could take several years to settle.
Brookwood Medical Center may consider appealing a recent $7.5 million verdict in which an Alabama couple sued the hospital for negligence. The lawsuit alleges that Wilfred (aka Butch) was recuperating from back surgery when he began suffering serious pain. After being admitted to the hospital, doctors made the decision to monitor his condition. According to the claim, nurses failed to relay several changes in the man’s condition. By the next morning, Butch underwent emergency surgery to relieve pressure from a large hematoma on a bundle of nerves just below the spinal cord. The lawsuit alleged that the delay in surgery left Butch permanently impotent and incontinent.
This couple has been seeking for justice for over four years, and now the fight may continue. Consider the pain and suffering and the mental and emotional anguish; maybe even financial hardship. How much more should they endure? How much longer will this couple suffer without compensation, without justice?
I don’t know this family’s financial situation, but I would guess that the medical expenses alone left them financially strapped. During this long ordeal, they may have qualified for litigation funding, a non-recourse cash advance against their pending claim. If the defendant files for an appeal, litigation funding can still be an option to alleviate some financial burdens.
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, including an appeal. 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. The most attractive part about lawsuit funding is that if the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.
