There are no words to describe the loss of a loved one, especially due to the careless actions or negligence of someone else. Not only is the emotional stress and physical pain traumatic, but the economic consequences of losing someone you relied on for financial support can leave you full of fear and uncertainty and not sure what to do.
Whether from medical malpractice, auto accidents, product liability, and workplace fatalities, when a wrongful death occurs, the victim’s family has the right to file a lawsuit. The first step is to consult with an experienced attorney.
While no amount of money can ever replace a loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit can seek financial compensation for your loss. It can pay for medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, and loss of household services. A plaintiff can also seek financial compensation for loss of companionship and consortium.
Unfortunately, wrongful death claims can take years to settle; time many families don’t have especially if the victim was the breadwinner or if the family is already living paycheck to paycheck, with little or no savings. When the insurance company denies, delays, and defends, the financial burden is increased. Without financial assistance, many victims are unable to proceed with their case, often times settling for considerably less than full case value.
A better option for these plaintiffs might be lawsuit funding.
Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against a pending claim to help plaintiffs stay financially stable during the litigation process. In fact, it may be the only financial lifeline to paying medical expenses, funeral expenses, mortgage, and other essential bills. By securing lawsuit funding, a plaintiff’s attorney has the time necessary to obtain full compensation.
The application process is free and easy; there are no credit checks or employment verification. After reviewing a wrongful death lawsuit funding application, if approved, funds are usually available within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, the legal funding company assumes all the risks. Repayment is only made if, and when the lawsuit is won and settled. In the event the plaintiff loses, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety.
If you are struggling financially while awaiting a settlement in your wrongful death case, don’t be tempted to accept less than full compensation. Call Lawsuit Financial or visit us online for a free, no-obligation consultation or to apply.
