Cases We Fund – Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Funding
Did you file a medical malpractice claim as a result of a doctor’s negligence? Did something go wrong with a surgical procedure, or were you given the wrong prescription? If you’ve been injured because of medical malpractice, you’re entitled to compensation. Medical bills pile up fast and can often reach tens of thousands of dollars (or more). If you’re waiting for a lawsuit to settle so you can pay your bills, you might need to look for other options because lawsuits can take months or even years to settle. That is why Capital Now Funding provides funding for a wide range of personal injury lawsuits including medical malpractice lawsuits.
What is Medical Malpractice? Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor, or other health care professional, causes an injury to a patient through a negligent act or omission. Medical malpractice claims can take years to settle. That means you might be lacking income for longer than you can wait if your injuries are preventing you from working. If you don’t have enough savings to be financially independent for the next year or more, you should consider getting a pre-settlement loan to cover your bills while you wait for the payout.
If you have been injured as a result of a doctor’s negligence and need financial assistance, a settlement loan, also called pre settlement funding may be what you need. Although it’s called a loan, it’s actually an advance known as non-recourse funding. This type of advance comes with ZERO RISK, because you don’t have to pay it back if you lose your case.
Medical Malpractice Pre Settlement Funding
You can’t begin to guess when your settlement check will be deposited in your account. You can count on it taking a long time. If you aren’t able to work, you won’t have a way to pay your bills. Some can’t be put off, such as the power bill and groceries.
However, a settlement loan will help you cover your most essential costs until you have a settlement check. To get paid before your case settles, apply for a ZERO RISK pre-settlement loan from Capital Now Funding.
A pre-settlement loan is an advance that provides a portion of your estimated settlement immediately. Although it’s called a loan, it’s closer to a special type of advance known as non-recourse funding. This kind of advance comes with ZERO RISK because you don’t have to pay it back if you lose your case.
Why get pre-settlement funding? Does a medical malpractice claim really take that long?
You might be wondering why you should apply for pre-settlement funding for a medical malpractice claim when you know you’re certain to receive a settlement check. The truth is that you probably can’t afford to wait for your settlement check to arrive in the mail. Your case will most likely take longer than you expect to settle; certain factors may complicate the process.
Personal injury lawsuits almost inevitably require months and even years to complete. Most will settle before trial, which is a good thing, but regardless it is a long process. Even clear-cut cases take a long time to settle because of the time required to complete all the settlement negotiations. Medical malpractice lawsuits can be especially lengthy, dragging on for years.
That’s not always the case, but you can’t have any way of knowing how long your case will take to settle.
What types of medical malpractice claims qualify for pre-settlement funding?
The following are common types of medical malpractice lawsuits:
- Hospital-acquired infection
- Failure to treat
- Prescription drug errors
- Delayed diagnosis
- Childbirth injuries
- Surgical or procedural errors
As long as you have retained an attorney and are pursuing a lawsuit for any of the above (or similar) medical malpractice claims, you qualify to apply for pre-settlement funding.
What expenses would a lawsuit loan cover?
If approved, your pre settlement funding can be used to cover any bills that require payment. Most people use their advance to pay for food and utilities initially, then devote the rest to their medical bills. Although you should always consult your attorney about how to prioritize your payments, it’s usually a wise move to start paying down medical bills as soon as you get some cash. Medical bills pile up quickly, and if you don’t pay them right away, they’ll go to collections. On the other hand, if you don’t pay your electric bill by the end of the month, the power company will shut off your service.
When you have bills to pay or a family to take care of, you can’t afford to wait months for your settlement. You need money right away. Apply today for settlement funding from Capital Now Funding, or call us at 1-855-CAP-FUND.
Medical malpractice settlements are often large
Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Victims with extensive injuries have been known to win hundreds of thousands of dollars, sometimes millions. We hope your injuries are not extensive or severe but it is important to understand that the greater the impact your injury has on your life, the bigger payout you’re likely to get from a lawsuit.
Regardless of how large your payout might turn out to be, the promise of future cash won’t put food on the table today, nor will promises keep the electric company from turning off your power. If you’re struggling to get by, pre-settlement funding from Capital Now Funding will help you manage until your settlement check is in your hands.
Two simple tips for winning your medical malpractice lawsuit
Although you aren’t required to pay back a pre-settlement loan if you lose your case, you probably need every dollar you can get. Even after getting approved for pre-settlement money, make sure you follow through with your lawsuit. Here are two tips for winning your medical malpractice lawsuit and getting the full amount of compensation you deserve:
1. Attend all scheduled medical appointments.
Keeping all of your medical appointments is critical. Skipping any of them will imply to the court that you might not really be injured. Show up for all of your scheduled medical appointments and tests even if you don’t want the treatment. You can always ask the doctor for alternatives or reject certain treatments after you’ve arrived. But if you reject any treatments, be prepared to explain your reasoning to the court.
2. Accept the settlement offer your attorney negotiates
When your attorney negotiates a settlement offer, don’t reject it if he or she tells you it’s the best you can get. Your lawyer will have spent a substantial amount of time and energy negotiating on your behalf. The other party may not agree to a settlement amount that’s as high as you’d like it to be, but you shouldn’t reject any final offers. If your lawyer tells you he or she can’t get you any more, don’t reject the offer or you might end up with nothing at all.
