Holiday Sale Trampling: Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Wal-Mart

Posted on March 25, 2012 by Fast Lawsuit Team

The day after Thanksgiving (Black Saturday) is a much awaited time because of the crazy discounts. People line up hours before a store opening, excited to get the first dibs on the fabulous finds. Indeed, Black Saturday sales are about frenzied shopping. And sometimes this can go out of hand.

In 2008, a crowd of shoppers waiting outside Wal-Mart’s Long Island store got out of control and stampeded into the shop. Unfortunately, Jdimytai Damour, a guard who was tasked to provide security for the sale, died of asphyxiation. He was assigned to man the doors when around 2,000 shoppers rushed to the store and broke through the doors, trampling him in the process. Four other people were also injured. This is the first fatal trampling incident involving Wal-Mart. Surprisingly, the retail giant was fined only $7,000 for the incident.

The Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Damour’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Wal-Mart, as well as the shopping center it was situated in. The lawsuit claims that Wal-Mart was liable due to the following reasons:

-          The Black Friday sale was heavily advertised. This promoted heavy discounts on limited inventory (such as digital cameras and flat screen TVs) which resulted in frenzy and mayhem on the part of the shoppers.

-          There were not enough measures with regards to security to protect against overcrowding and stampeding in view of the size of the event and the expected crowd. There were no barricades to prevent shoppers from rushing towards the store. There was also no numbered ticketing system to make it more organized.

-          There was a failure to put into action a crowd-management plan.

-          Damour, who was a temporary worker, was not given training for this particular assignment, but was assigned to the front door because of his size (6’5” in height and 270 pounds).

The lawsuit alleges that because of Wal-Mart’s negligence, it resulted in dangerous working conditions for its employees. The challenge is to be able to show Wal-Mart’s liability in this case. With big businesses having a lot of resources and can afford to hire a team of lawyers to protect their interests. A lawsuit such as this may drag on for a long time. Meanwhile, a family may get more and more hard put to make ends meet.

The families of the victims can sue for:

-          Loss of future income

-          Loss of inheritance

-          Loss of consortium

-          Medical bills

-          Funeral and burial costs

-          Loss of benefits, including medical coverage, pension or retirement benefits

Families of victims have the right towards compensation for the loss of their loved one. However, it is also good to be able to negotiate and fight for fair and just compensation from a position of strength. This is where lawsuit funding can come in. Lawsuit settlement funding can provide funds to help hire experts, get depositions for the testimony of witnesses and cover court-related costs. It can also help provide for the family’s needs.

FastLawsuitMoney.com can give families of wrongful death victims a lawsuit cash advance so that they don’t have to settle for a lesser compensation amount. FastLawsuitMoney.com offers non-recourse funding. This means that the family does not have to pay the money back when the lawsuit does not settled. FastLawsuitMoney.com also provides a quick and easy applications process so that families don’t have to wait long for them to get the funds they need.

 

Personal Injury Basics: Loss of Consortium

Posted on March 22, 2012 by Fast Lawsuit Team

A car accident, a defective product or a slip and fall and other injuries produces two kinds of victims. A personal injury does not just affect the victim himself but also the people around him – his spouse and children in particular. After all, the injured person is not the only one undergoing stress and trauma, as well as a particular kind of loss.

When one is severely injured, or worse, dies, as a result of an accident or catastrophic event, things will never be the same. When a car accident renders a man disabled, his son can no longer enjoy shooting hoops with him or going on camping trips with him. When a doctor’s mistake results in some brain damage, the victim’s wife can no longer enjoy quiet nights talking with her husband or having his help with the discipline of the children.  When the accident results in death, this may mean that a daughter will never experience the joy of walking down the aisle with him during her wedding.

This particular loss, in personal injury law, is called loss of consortium. This is awarded to a victim or a victim’s loved ones who are deprived of the benefits and enjoyment of a familial relationship as a result of the victim’s serious injury and subsequent disability or death. In some states, it is simply defined as the loss of the ability to enjoy a “normal relationship” with a spouse or loved one.

Instances when Loss of Consortium is Awarded

A victim or his loved one is entitled to loss of consortium damages, as far as money is able to compensate for such a loss. It is important to note, though, that the rules covering the amount for loss of consortium damages may vary by state or by jurisdiction. For instance, when a victim dies, there are some states that allow parents, siblings or children to sue for loss of consortium. Other states may only award loss of consortium damages to the spouse.

The instance by which it is payable may also vary. Depending on the jurisdiction, loss of consortium damages may need to be filed separately by the victim’s loved ones. On other jurisdictions, the loss of consortium damages is awarded to the victim or his estate and added as part of a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

Areas covering loss of consortium

Some areas where loss of consortium may be payable include:

-          Inability to participate in sexual activity

-          Inability to participate in the family’s activities

-          Loss of companionship, care and affection

-          Inability to work to contribute to the family’s finances

-          Inability to contribute to the household’s maintenance (i.e. fixing a leaking sink, mowing the lawn or cooking meals)

-          Inability to help in parenting and childcare

Loss of consortium and Privacy

If you are considering filing a claim for loss of consortium, you must also consider the fact that this may mean a loss of privacy for you and your spouse, particularly with regards to your sex life. The intimate details of your sexual activities will be made subject to close scrutiny. It is important that you consider this and discuss this aspect with your lawyer so that you can weigh the advantages and the disadvantages.

Loss of Consortium and Lawsuit Funding

Whether loss of consortium is filed with a personal injury claim, a wrongful death claim or as a claim filed by the victim’s loved one, it is important to consider finding help when you can get it. When a lawsuit is still pending in court, it may be tempting to consider accepting the other party’s settlement offer. This is when you need money to pay for your medical treatment or funds to cover your spouse’s funeral and burial.

During this difficult time, worrying about money is the last thing you need. When you are caught in a rock and a hard place, there is another option – to seek lawsuit settlement funding. This can help you get much-needed funds to cover important expenses while your lawsuit is still pending settlement.

The advantage of lawsuit funding is that eligibility is not based on whether you have a good employment or credit record. Rather, approval for “lawsuit loans” (as they are often called) is determined through the merits of the case. Also, the money is only payable upon the settlement of the lawsuit. When this does not happen, you are not obligated to pay the money back.

Maximizing your Personal Injury Claim

Posted on March 19, 2012 by Fast Lawsuit Team

An accident can range from a simple fender bender, an embarrassing fall to something much worse. With the first, you just emerge a little shaken and perhaps with a dent on your car or a scratch on your arm. With the latter, the injuries may be catastrophic that they can change your life (and that of your loved ones) forever. That’s tragic enough, but what makes it worse is that you may not receive the compensation that befits your injuries unless you file a lawsuit against the other party (and their insurance company as well).

When it comes to personal injury claims, it helps to understand your rights to compensation. The other party may try to get you to settle for a certain amount, which most likely is smaller than the actual value of your particular personal injury claim. Before you sign anything, it’s best that you consult a lawyer to help you determine the full amount of the compensation that you should get.

Here are some personal injury claim areas that you should look into to make sure that you get a fair and just amount:

Liability. When liability can be proven to sit squarely on the other party’s side, you can work towards getting the maximum amount of compensation. In some states, if the accident was partly caused by your negligence as well, this can decrease the amount of compensation. It is important for you to be able to present proof with regards to the other party’s liability – that they indeed, by virtue of their negligence, mistake or willful act, caused the accident to occur. That is why it is important for you to document the site of the injury, as well as the doctor’s reports that show the extent of your injuries.

Type and Extent of Injury. Injuries can be minor, catastrophic or fatal. Compensation can be determined based on the type of injury you sustained. The type of injury will help determine future medical expenses, as well as the amount you may need for adaptive equipment and future expenses for therapy and home care. Injuries may fall under the following:

-          Temporary partial disability. The total disability is only temporary and the patient is reasonably expected to recover from the disability. After which, the patient should be able to do activities he used to do.

-          Temporary total disability. The patient is totally disabled during his hospitalization and recovery, but afterwards is expected to resume full function.

-          Permanent partial disability. The disability is permanent, but the patient is still able to do some of the activities he used to do and is still able to work to earn some money up to a certain extent.

-          Permanent total disability. The disability is permanent and the patient is not expected to recover from the impairment.

Please note that there are different definitions of disability (as it may apply in certain states). A person may be considered disabled if he is unable to perform the tasks he needs to do his current job.

Medical damages. Be sure to keep records of all your medically-related expenses. These include:

-          Ambulance expenses

-          Emergency and in-patient hospital bills

-          Professional fees (doctors, chiropractor, surgeon, etc.)

-          Prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs

-          Diagnostic fees, laboratory fees

-          Surgical apparatus or prosthetic appliances

-          Nurse fees

You should also take into account future medical expenses if it can be shown that you need to get continued medical care.

Non-Medical “Special Damages”.  This includes expenses during your hospital stay such as expenses for gasoline (going to and fro the hospital), lost wages, lost sick leave or vacation leave, hotel and food expenses (for the caregiver), as well as child care and household help during the hospitalization and recovery.

Lost income/loss of a Job. Not only should you fight for the income you lost while you were laid up and recovering. The compensation should also cover future lost income or the eventual loss of your job. You should also seek compensation if the injuries you sustained resulted in your needing to take a job on a part-time basis or a job that pays a lower rate.

Pain, suffering and mental anguish. In some states, there is compensation provided for pain, suffering and stress you underwent. This would cover the severity and length of the pain caused by the injuries, as well as the instances that cause or will continue to cause emotional or mental distress to you.

Loss of consortium. This covers compensation for the loss of “enjoyment” or benefits of a relationship. Your injuries may affect your relationships with your spouse and your family. For instance, you can no longer engage in sexual relations with your spouse, this is subject for compensation.

Depending on your injuries, you may stand to receive a considerable amount as your compensation. Of course, the other party would try to minimize the compensation they would have to pay you. A lawsuit will be useful in settling this issue.

However, a lawsuit is the last thing you need while you’re recovering from your injuries. You may need added funds to help ensure that your case is strong. During this time, you may already be burdened by medical expenses, as well as the need to provide for your family’s daily needs. Lawsuit funding will help you deal with these financial burdens.

The cash you get from a lawsuit settlement funding will give you ready funds. This way, you don’t have to be tempted to accept a low settlement offer from the other party. You can continue with the lawsuit or with negotiating a proper settlement amount.

If you are in need of a lawsuit loan, you can go to FastLawsuitMoney.com for fast and reliable processing of your application. With FastLawsuitMoney.com, once your application is reviewed and approved, you can get the funding in as quickly as 24 hours.

Personal Injury Basics: Loss of Earning Capacity

Posted on March 16, 2012 by Fast Lawsuit Team

Unless we are heirs drawing income from a particularly substantial trust fund or have recently won the multi-million lotto draw, chances are, we have to work (whether as employees for a company or as a business owner). Our employment or business provides us with the income we need to survive so that we can enjoy life and provide for our families.

However, our ability to earn may be cut short due to the injuries we sustained due to instances caused by other people’s negligent or willful acts. One may be rendered totally disabled so that he can no longer perform the tasks required for his current job. Or, one may become partially disabled so that he may have to look for a job that he can do with his current set of abilities. As such, loss of earning capacity is one of the items you can include in a personal injury claim.

When Is One eligible for Loss of Earning Capacity?

Loss of earning capacity covers more than income lost in the past. It also is about recovering potential or future earnings. However, past lost income comes into play as it is used as a basis for future earnings. Loss of earning capacity also looks at how the injury affects efficiency and stamina.

One can claim for loss of earning capacity when:

-          He is no longer able to perform the job that he currently has.  For instance, if the victim is a radio announcer or voice talent, and he loses his voice as a result of an accident, he can be considered “disabled”. This is because he can no longer do the tasks and responsibilities that he used to do, even though he can still find another kind of employment.

-          The injury hurts one’s employment prospects. Another example would be a famous model gracing the catwalk, as well as magazines and television commercials. If her face is permanently scarred due to the accident, she can no longer get modeling jobs and enjoy the income she used to earn. She may need to find another kind of employment, even when this pays lower than what she currently receives. On the other hand, if one is an office worker, a scar may not be material as it does not affect her ability to perform her tasks as an office worker.

-          The injuries sustained hurt one’s chances of promotion or advancement. If your injuries mean that you can no longer be considered for promotion, then you are eligible to claim for loss of earning capacity.

Other considerations

Future earnings may be difficult to compute. There are other considerations to make, which includes:

-          The age of the victim. If the victim is young, then the court will compute for the number of working years remaining in his lifetime. This means that someone that is close to retiring will receive a lower amount of compensation for loss of earning capacity compared to someone that has just worked for a few years. A minor (or his parents as representatives) can file for lost future earning capacity as a result of the child’s injuries.

-          The ability of the victim. What is the victim’s educational background? Does his work involve a special skill or talent (i.e. basketball players getting injured)?

-          The possibility of retraining. Can the victim be retrained so that he can work in another area in his field? Or does he totally need to move to another field due to his injuries?

-          The possibility of further injury if a victim continues with his current job. For instance, a basketball player with an injured knee can risk further physical damage if he continues with his job as a basketball player.

-          Self-employment or working on commission. Potential earnings may be computed based on how much he stands to earn if he did the same kind of work for another company. It can also be computed based on past business returns. It will also take into consideration the amount of money needed to hire someone to do the victim’s tasks.

Loss of Earning Capacity and Lawsuit Funding

Loss of earning capacity is just one aspect of a personal injury claim. Loss of earning capacity may be a bit tricky to prove and may prolong a lawsuit. During this time, you may need some lawsuit funding to help you with your financial concerns while you are waiting for the verdict and for the lawsuit to settle.

A lawsuit settlement advance can help you by providing you with quick and ready cash at an already difficult time. This will make you less vulnerable to the temptation of accepting a settlement offer that is far less than what you stand to get, especially if you consider loss of earning capacity.

If you are in need of a lawsuit cash advance, you can go to FastLawsuitMoney.com. With FastLawsuitMoney.com’s streamlined process, you can be sure that your application for lawsuit funding does not require a lot of legwork and paperwork from your end. We will work with your lawyer to evaluate the lawsuit. Once you receive approval of your lawsuit funding, it is not unusual for you to get the money in as quickly as a day.

 

 

Wrongful Death and Lawsuit Funding

Posted on March 10, 2012 by Fast Lawsuit Team

The death of a loved one is a tragic event. It is even more tragic if it was caused by another person’s negligence or willful, malicious act. There is a mixture of unbelief and anger. There is grief, knowing that you can never enjoy the lost loved one’s presence and companionship. There may even be worries about the future, especially if the one who passed away was the family’s breadwinner, or at least, contributed to the household income.

What is Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death usually results from an accident, defective product or medical malpractice. The person or entity that is guilty of the death is called a tortfeasor and is liable to pay monetary damages to the victim’s survivors. Tortfeasors may be a negligent shopkeeper, an employer, the driver involved in the car accident, the maker of a faulty product, a doctor, or someone who committed a crime that resulted in the victim’s death.

Wrongful death lawsuits can be brought against a wide variety of people, such as the driver at fault in an automobile accident, a negligent employer, the manufacturer of a faulty or dangerous product, or a violent criminal.

The elements of a wrongful death suit include:

-          The death was caused by an act of negligence or an unjust action of another (either partly or wholly)

-          There is liability on the part of the erring party

-          The victim is survived by dependents who suffer a financial and emotional as a result of the death. The survivors must show a clear relationship to the victim.

-          There is financial loss that resulted from the death (lost income, the value of lost services, lost medical benefits, etc.)

Who can file a wrongful death claim?

It is important to understand that the persons allowed to file a wrongful death claim against a loved one will vary from state to state. Usually, it is only the spouse that can claim.  In some states, this can extend further to children, parents and siblings.

Here are some people who may file a wrongful death claim (depending on the state where he will file the claim):

-          A parent or appointed guardian of a minor. He may sue for compensation as guardian ad litem. However, most states specify that the child should first be born alive and then died. This means that in some states, there is no wrongful death suit to be filed for the death of a fetus.

-          Extended members of the family. This may be allowed depending on the situation (i.e. the case of a child’s death, where parents are no longer living and the grandparents are the ones who are raising the child). On the other hand, the death of the elderly may not warrant a claim against the loss of nurturing, guidance, parental care or financial support since most family members have already been grown up at that time and are self-supporting. However, the family members may claim for loss of future inheritance if the elderly relative is still working at the time of his death.

-          Legal dependents (i.e. aged parents/grandparents) who receive support or care from the lost loved one.

Family members cannot file against another family member. There may be criminal charges filed but no wrongful death suits. For example, if a spouse died as a result of being battered by the other spouse, the children cannot claim for damages for wrongful death. Only those who are not related to the defendant may file a claim.

What is included in a wrongful death claim?

Survivors can claim for:

-          Medical bills (while the victim was living)

-          Funeral expenses

-          Loss of future income or wages (this is computed from the time of the victim’s death up to his expected retirement)

-          Loss of retirement or pension benefits

-          Loss of medical coverage

-          Loss of inheritance

-          Pain and anguish for the survivors

-          Loss of consortium (i.e. the enjoyment of the victim’s companionship, care and protection)

-          Monetary value of the victim’s contribution to the household (maintenance work, childcare or housekeeping, cooking or driving the kids around).

-          Punitive damages (in some cases)

When deciding about the damages, some considerations are given towards the victim’s person – his lifestyle, character, health condition and earning history.

Lawsuit Funding for Wrongful Death Claims

A wrongful death claim can be a long and drawn-out affair. There will be discussions about future earnings, the victim’s history and personality and other details that will be included in the claim. It may take a while for the lawsuit to finally provide the victim’s family the funds they need. Meanwhile, bills are mounting and the family still has to pay for the mortgage, the daily expenses and the children’s education.

The good news is that a family can turn to lawsuit funding to help tide them over and provide for their needs. A family’s needs can’t wait for the lawsuit to settle. And they certainly don’t need the financial worries on top of the grief they are experiencing. The settlement loan can be used to pay off medical bills, funeral expenses and so on.

FastLawsuitMoney.com provides families and individuals with a lawsuit settlement advance during a trying time of their lives. FastLawsuitMoney.com is committed to provide a streamlined applications process. The funding is also non-recourse, meaning you don’t have to pay it back in the event that the lawsuit fails to settle. The applications also require very little legwork and paperwork on your part. Once the application is reviewed and approved, you can expect to receive your funds within the day.

 

Airplane Crashes and Lawsuit Funding

Posted on March 6, 2012 by Fast Lawsuit Team

They say that air travel is the safest way to go. There are less accidents in planes than in any other mode of public transportation. However, when you consider that plane accidents and plane crashes are caused by a number of factors, you will need to acknowledge the possibility of it happening.

Some reasons for these accidents include:

-          Flaws in the design or manufacture of the plane or its parts

-          Human error, including mistakes made during take off or landing

-          Acts of negligence by the pilot, maintenance or airline staff

-          Acts of negligence by the air traffic controller

-          Adverse weather conditions (i.e. storms, lightning, etc.)

-          Sabotage

-          Bird strikes

-          Fuel Starvation

If an airplane crash is rare enough, surviving a crash may be rarer. And it leaves the victim’s loved ones devastated after the tragic accident.

Compensation for Airplane Crashes

A lawsuit will never be able to compensate the loss of a loved one. However, it can help ease the worries of the family. The just compensation arising from an airplane crash will help pay for medical expenses (if applicable), as well as funeral and burial expenses. It can also provide for the family, particularly if the loved one is the family’s breadwinner. It can also ensure that other important assets are protected – the settlement can enable the family to fully pay the mortgage or get rid of any other debt the family has.

The complexities of a plane crash lawsuit

Lawsuits filing for compensation in an aviation accident may be filed by the victim, or if he is deceased, his spouse. If there is no spouse, then his children (represented by the guardian) or his parents may sue. If there are no children or parents to file the suit, the siblings would be the next that can file the lawsuit.

However, you may not be able to get the settlement as soon as you need them. It will take time and it may even mean you have to file a lawsuit against the party that is liable. The need may be especially urgent if you don’t have the ready cash to pay for medical travel, as well as any expenses related to the loved one’s treatment or death.

Airplane crash lawsuits may turn out to be complicated affairs, especially if it involves an international flight. There are questions to be threshed out: where to file the lawsuit, what law should cover or apply, shall the lawsuit be filed by individual complainants or should they join together for a class action suit? Who is liable for the claim – is it the airline, the manufacturer of the plane, of the parts or the owner of the plane? How can damage and liability be proven?

These kinds of lawsuits are complex and involve a lot of parties that it will take years for the lawsuit to come to a conclusion.

Here are some areas of consideration:

Airline liability. This depends on the whether the flight is international or local. Local flights are carriers are covered by law and regulations of the state, which may differ. International flights are covered by the Montreal Protocol and Warsaw Convention. The two international agreements simplify the case by not requiring complainants to show proof of the airline’s negligence.

Liability for privately owned planes. Any negligence of the pilot or aircraft maintenance staff will be considered the liability of the owner of the plane.

Statutes of limitation. The families of the victims should file the lawsuit within a certain time limit. Otherwise, you lose the opportunity to claim.

Monetary compensation will be computed based on the varying laws of each state. The compensation will usually cover:

-          Medical expenses (past, present and future)

-          Lost future income

-          Pain, suffering and disability

-          Funeral expenses

-          Loss of consortium (given to loved ones for their loss of companionship with the loved one)

-          Loss of prospective inheritance

The expected settlement from an airplane crash is quite substantial. However, airlines and their insurance companies may try to minimize the claims by trying to talk the family out of litigation. This may seem convenient for victims and their families as they get cash they need badly at the time they need it. However, they may be missing out on the settlement that they stand to get had they proceeded with the lawsuit.

One solution for this would be lawsuit funding. This enables families to continue with the lawsuit and still survive the financial challenges of losing a member of the family. Lawsuit settlement funding can be used to repay debts, cover the mortgage, provide for the family’s daily needs and cover death-related expenses.

You can consider getting a lawsuit loan from a reputable company such as FastLawsuitMoney.com. FastLawsuitMoney.com has built a solid reputation of providing cash when complainants need it most – before the lawsuit settles. With FastLawsuitMoney.com’s streamlined application process, you can get funds in as quickly as a day after your application has been approved.

Dental Malpractice and Lawsuit Funding

Posted on March 3, 2012 by Fast Lawsuit Team

A saying goes, “Be true to your teeth, or your teeth will be false to you.” Our oral and dental health is important. We practice good dental hygiene not just for cosmetic purposes (to have that bright, white smile) but for health purposes as well. Bad dental health can lead to a host of other illnesses (such as heart disease). That is why it is recommended that we regularly go to our dentist for check-ups and treatments.

Dental Malpractice

As with other medical practitioners, dentists can make serious mistakes and acts of negligence that will result in service that falls below the prescribed standards of care. Dental malpractice covers treatment, failure to treat misdiagnosis or other mistakes or misconduct that no other reasonably prudent dentist or dental practitioner would have committed.

You must also remember that for the dental malpractice to be considered actionable, there should be injuries resulting from the malpractice.

Some cases filed with regards to dental malpractice covers:

-          A failure to detect oral cancer

-          A patient whose dentures were ill-fitting, which resulted into pain

-          A patient who underwent severe pain and suffering for a dentist’s failure to provide him with immediate treatment due to an abscessed tooth. As a result, the patient had a severe infection to his brain that caused permanent spastic quadriparesis (muscular weakness of all limbs)

-          A patient who suffered from multiple fractures in the jaw during wisdom teeth extraction

These cases were successfully filed and settled.

Here are other possible dental injuries and dental malpractice where the dentist may have liability:

-          Wrongful death due to a treatment or oral surgery gone wrong

-          Injuries (temporary or permanent) to the nerves of the chin, tongue, lips and jaw

-          Delayed or improper treatment of oral diseases

-          Injuries arising from the faulty use of anesthesia

-          Misdiagnosis of oral condition

-          Failure to diagnosis oral cancer, gum disease and other serious oral problems

-          Infections and injuries due to misaligned or faulty prostheses, root canal or crown

-          Improper treatment provided by an unlicensed dentist

-          Infection sustained due to unclean, faulty or improper use of dental implements and products

-          Loss of taste or numbness

-          Structural damage to the gums, chin, lips or tongue

-          Root canal injuries where treatment used Sargenti Paste (N2)

-          Injuries resulting from teeth extractions that were unnecessary

-          Failure to get informed consent from the patient

A Dental Malpractice Lawsuit

A dental malpractice lawsuit is particularly challenging. It is but natural that the dentist you sued will try to refute your claim, or at least, devalue it. Much of the case rests on expert opinion and testimony. Thus, you may have to prepare yourself to get the best experts that will sufficient prove your claim and protect the rights you have to demand for compensation for the injury, as well as the pain and suffering your went through.

You should also remember that there is a statue of limitations for dental malpractice claims – although the length of time will vary from state to state. If you are not able to file your lawsuit within the statute of limitations, you can no longer claim for the compensation due you. Also, if you are suing a dentist or dental practitioner that is under the employ of the government or a public hospital, you are required to provide formal notification regarding your claim in as quickly as 180 days.

The importance of ready cash

The lawsuit will most likely require the hiring of expert witnesses to show that the dentist is the person directly and irrefutably responsible for the injuries and the subsequent damages incurred. You also don’t have the luxury of time. This pressure to file the case and hire your expert witnesses is further compounded by the fact that you may need additional funds to treat the injuries you sustained due to the dental malpractice. And since your claim will eventually be paid by the insurance company that covers malpractice complaints for the erring dentist, you can expect the lawsuit to be a long and drawn-out process.

This is where lawsuit funding can help. Lawsuit funding can provide you with the funds to say “no” to the offers that may first be sent out to you by the other party. Without the cash to help tide you over, it may be very tempting to just give in and give up on the lawsuit.

The great thing about settlement funding is that it is non-recourse funding. This means that you don’t have to pay the funds back in the event that the case fails to settle. The lawsuit loan also is based not on employment records or credit standing, but on the merits of the case.

For quick and easy lawsuit loans, you can trust on FastLawsuitMoney.com. FastLawsuitMoney.com has built a solid reputation for processing applications quickly. You can receive your cash in as quickly as 24 hours once your application is approved.
