When we entrust our elderly loved ones to a nursing home, we expect that they will be receive proper care and be treated with dignity. Unfortunately, the number of nursing home negligence and abuse cases in the U.S. are rising each year. Communication among caregivers is far too common; the most noted errors are in prescribing medication. When this happens, family members should seek an experienced attorney who specializes in nursing home negligence cases. Once an attorney is retained, if families find that they do not have the financial strength to pursue the case to the end without some financial assistance, litigation funding may be available.
A wrongful death lawsuit was recently filed against a Chicago nursing home after the death of a patient. Family members allege that doctors prescribed incorrect and excessive doses of medications and failed to properly monitor and report the woman’s condition, which ultimately caused her death. The lawsuit seeks in excess of $200,000.
Lawsuit Financial has provided litigation funding to families like this one for many years. We review the case, and if it has merit, will devise a legal finance plan to assist victims and family members through the difficult financial times. Litigation funding can often be the difference between a mediocre settlement and a large, injury appropriate settlement.
To be considered for litigation funding, we required completion of a simple application which is available online or by calling our office. You are not subjected to credit checks and there is no employment verification; these things do not matter in the decision and funding process. Additionally, the money is provided risk-free; recipients do not have to pay back the cash advance until the case is successful. If the litigation funding client loses, the repayment is waived in its entirety.
Victims should not conduct settlement negotiations when they are struggling financially.
