If your auto accident involves the potential liability of a government entity and/or a government employee, filing a lawsuit and seeking compensation will not be an easy task. Thanks to a legal concept known as sovereign immunity, government agencies and their employees are protected from many kinds of liability. This doesn’t mean seeking justice is impossible, but due to numerous technical procedures, it is best to consult with an experienced auto accident attorney. Once a lawsuit is filed, the challenge facing many plaintiffs is that the lawsuits could take months, even years to be resolved. For plaintiffs with immediate and long-term financial problems, lawsuit funding can help.

Nursing home residents are typically older and in poorer health than seniors citizens who live on their own or with loved ones. They are also typically more prone to falling. However, a well-run and fully staffed and trained nursing home should be able to prevent the majority of these incidents. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect is still an all too common problem. When issues of neglect such as falls occur, residents can suffer physically and mentally as a result. If a loved one has been injured because of nursing home negligence and/or abuse, victims and their families need an experienced nursing home abuse attorney by their side.

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. Although no money can replace a permanently impaired quality of life, it can provide some help for patients whose health problems were heightened due to the mistake. It also can offer some sense of justice and closure to bereaved loved ones.

While a fair settlement is preferred over the uncertainty of a jury verdict, insurance companies often make low settlement offers in hopes that the plaintiffs will be struggling financially and accept less than deserved. Plaintiffs don’t have to succumb to this tactic. While a medical malpractice attorney helps those victims fight for their rights to a fair settlement or just verdict, Lawsuit Financial can help them remain financial stable until fair compensation is received.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance, often obtained in less than 48 hours, to pay immediate bills and expenses. Unlike a bank loan, a funding decision is based on case strength, not credit or employment status. There are no monthly payments; Lawsuit Financial is repaid only when the case successfully settles. If the plaintiff doesn’t recover compensation in the case, we will completely excuse the obligation to repay the advance.
