Lawsuit Claims Inadequate Care and Supervision Led to Elderly Patient’s Death

When a loved one dies as a result of medical negligence, family members can seek compensation from the wrongdoer. Pursuing wrongful death litigation is a complicated process; the litigant is, almost always, dealing with large corporations and/or insurance companies who delay the process to their financial advantage. Cases often take years to resolve prolonging an emotional, and often financial, roller coaster. Lawsuit funding can provide assistance to surviving family members for expected and unexpected costs while the litigation is pending.

An elderly woman was admitted to the hospital for the purposes of rehabilitation, but after a fall suffered a subdural hematoma that led to a coma and, eventually, her death. The patient’s daughter filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging that the hospital failed to:

•provide her mother proper care to decrease the risk of falls.
•provide proper supervision.
•document the usage of bed and chair alarms.

The suit also claims that due to hospital negligence, the woman sustained bodily injuries, pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, loss of capacity to enjoy life, and aggravation of existing diseases and physical defects.

Sadly, this case is not unique. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit is only the first step. While the family tries to cope emotionally, the last thing they need to worry about is the medical bills and funeral and burial expenses. Fortunately, lawsuit funding provided some relief.

With lawsuit funding, the family was able to focus on healing, rather than calculating expenses or worrying about how they would pay the bills. Funding was provided on non-recourse basis meaning repayment was contingent upon litigation outcome. After reviewing case documentation, funds were wired into their account within 24 hours. Because funding is based on the strength of the case, there was not need for credit checks or employment history. Once the case settled the advance was repaid from the proceeds of the case. Had the plaintiff lost the case, the lawsuit cash advance would have been completely waived.

Lawsuits can help put an end to your financial struggle, but lawsuit funding can help you wait out the litigation process by providing a cash advance against your pending claim.
