Wrongful Death Lawsuit Alleges Negligence by Health Care Facility

When placing a loved one in a health care facility to ensure their daily living needs are met, you expect a safe environment. Unfortunately, many facilities are understaffed or inadequately trained, which can result in negligence. If someone you love has suffered because of negligent care, you may be entitled to compensation.

A wrongful death lawsuit was filed last month against a West Virginia health care facility alleging reckless misconduct and wrongful death.

According to the complaint, a woman was admitted to the facility for rehabilitation and assistance with daily living. During her residency, she suffered multiple witnessed falls, complicated urinary tract infections with sepsis, and fecal impaction, which ultimately led to her death six months after arrival. The plaintiff alleges that the defendant:

  • failed to properly staff the facility.
  • failed to provide adequate supervision.
  • failed to provide basic needs like food, liquid, toileting, cleaning and assistance with activities of daily living.
  • failed to provide a safe environment to residents.

The plaintiff seeks trial by jury and compensation for mental pain, loss of companionship and incurred funeral expenses.

The financial and emotional roller coaster of a lawsuit is equally as painful as the loss. No one has limitless financial strength, and victims should not conduct settlement negotiations when they are struggling financially. If they do, they will, almost always, accept an offer that is less than full case value. Lawsuit Financial can assist victims through the difficult financial issues facing them.

Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance to help pay important bills, such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, mortgage payments and other important daily expenses. The process of obtaining funding is quite simple and can be done online or over the phone in less than five minutes.

Once we receive an application and case documentation, our in-house underwriters will evaluate the case and if approved, provided funding within 24 – 48 hours. We require no credit checks or employment verifications, and there are no monthly payments. The only time payment is made to Lawsuit Financial is when the case settles; repayment is made from the proceeds of the settlement. If the case is lost, the lawsuit cash advance would be completely waived. Call us today at 877-377-7848 for a free, no-obligation consultation or to begin the application process.
