Care Facility Reaches $1 Million Settlement in Wrongful Death Lawsuit

March 20, 2017 | Product Liability

Negligence lawsuits against nursing homes often take years for the case to wind its way through the courts, as seen in the following case.

A California continuing care retirement community has agreed to a $1 million settlement in a 2013 wrongful death and elder abuse lawsuit.

According to the suit, staff at the facility noticed an ulcer on the woman’s back, but failed to get her medical attention at the time. Her condition was so neglected that the ulcer became infected. The woman was sent to the hospital where she died of sepsis. The lawsuit also alleged the facility cut corners by not properly training staff, and putting profits over safety.

“While there were defenses to the allegations, we ultimately decided to resolve this case to put our focus on what matters most, the health and well-being of our residents,” said a spokesperson for the defense.

Many plaintiffs simply cannot wait years for their settlement without the help of litigation funding. Litigation Funding Corporation is a legal finance company that provides cash advances to plaintiffs for living expenses and other bills while they wait for their case to settle.

With a lawsuit cash advance, victims can take on deep pocketed defendants and avoid being forced to settle for less just to pay the bills. Litigation funding is not a loan; factors such as employment history, credit score, and financial standing are not required. The only concern is the validity of the lawsuit and the likelihood of its success. Additionally, there are no upfront fees or monthly payments; we are repaid only when your lawsuit settles or is resolved by a favorable cash judgment. If the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

If you have a viable lawsuit and are represented by an attorney, you are already pre-approved. Begin by completing a free, no obligation application online or by calling Litigation Funding Corporation. We will promptly request case documentation from your attorney to review your case. Once the determination has been made to provide funding, cash can be made available in as little as 24-hours. There are no restrictions on how the lawsuit cash advance is used.
