Were You Injured as the Result of A Doctor’s Medical Malpractice?

Did you have a plastic surgery, an implant surgery or another medical procedure which resulted in more harm to you, repeat or corrective surgery because of a doctor’s failures to adhere to the reasonable standard of industry care? If the answer is yes, you may have a legal medical malpractice claim against the doctor or hospital.

We have seen the results of disastrous surgeries and the harm they cause our clients, both physically but also mentally. For example, a client who underwent a breast augmentation procedure with fat grafting (her own body fat) which was performed by a cosmetic surgeon who was not board-certified ended up having to remove her breasts post-surgery due to an infection during the procedure. The client opted to increase her breast cup size from an A cup to a C cup. Her lawyers discovered that the sterilization process and fat which was injected into her breasts were not kept in terms and in par with industry standard. As a result, her breasts were infected. The doctor was later shown in court to have committed medical malpractice because he did not adhere to the standard of care necessary and that failure or negligence caused the client physical and tangible harm.

Medical malpractice cases can take many different forms and be the result of oversights, failures, and pure negligence. Medical malpractice can be committed by a doctor who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of surgery.

The Six Most Common Types of Auto Accidents

Across California and the United States, various types of automobile accidents occur on a daily basis. Whether it is an injured motorcyclist who finds himself making a claim against a drunk driver, a trucking or trailer accident gone wrong, or a car accident with many injured passengers, the availability of pre-settlement legal cash funding is a valuable resource in your legal case. High Rise Financial offers victims of bicycle accidents, boat accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck, car, ride sharing accidents like Uber and Lyft with access to what is similar to a lawsuit cash loan or advance of cash. In the legal world, we call this pre-settlement legal funding. In some circumstances, where your case has already settled against the defendant’s insurance company, you may be entitled to post-settlement legal funding as well if the insurance company is delaying in payment.

The beauty of cash funding for your lawsuit is that it affords you the financial stability and security while your case is pending with your attorney and the defendant. If your case is in litigation and tied up in court for a long time, this may be a very necessary resource based on your financial circumstance and bodily injury as a result of the accident. Many of our clients have lost the ability to work either temporarily or permanently as a result of their car or auto accident. These are all important factors to consider when making a determination of accepting an insurance company’s initial offer for your case. If you have received significant medical treatment or have a serious bodily injury that resulted from a third-party’s negligence or reckless behavior, your case can be strengthened.

Contact one of our representatives for assistance and apply for cash funding for your lawsuit today to see if your legal case qualifies.

Faulty, Failed or Defective Medical Devices like Hip Implants, Transvaginal Mesh and More

Defective medical devices on the market are now a common occurrence. Unfortunately, with trial and error, it is learned that a product has failed to work or function as represented or warranted by the manufacturer. Often times, since doctors are implementing, using or otherwise recommending the use of a medical device- cases for product liability may be intertwined with a medical malpractice claim against your health care provider.

Defective or failed medical equipment or devices that are specifically inserted into the body are the types of products that usually form the basis of a lawsuit in a product liability case. We often see patients become victims of failed hip implants, transvaginal mesh and defective IVC filters (which are inserted intoto the body to stop blood clots). High Rise Financial LLC offers such victims financial assistance in the form of pre-settlement and post-settlement legal funding. Although commonly referred to as a lawsuit loan or cash advance, this type of funding is not a loan in the sense that it is only paid back from your settlement if there is one. If you do not have any recovery against the liable party or insurance company, then there will be no repayment of the cash funding for your case.

Can I Sue for Pain and Suffering?

A victim of any personal injury accident can generally sue for pain and suffering money damages. Of course, the amount that will be considered or awarded is directly dependent on the severity of their injuries and the significant of the incident. Someone that trips and scrapes their knee does not have the same allocation for pain and suffering as someone who suffered third degree burns as a result of a defective product which would fall under product liability.

These distinctions are key. Almost every type of case qualifies for pain and suffering, with one exception: that is worker’s compensation claims. If you were injured in an accident while at work for your employer- then you cannot sue your employer for pain, suffering or disability.

What types of Accidents and Injuries Qualify for Pain and Suffering Damages?

Car accidents, medical malpractice cases, pedestrian accidents, slip and falls, product liability, dog bites, construction accidents, nursing home negligence, defective medical devices and other similar cases qualifies for pain and suffering damages. Injuries that would have a high dollar or monetary value on it for pain and suffering would probably include burn injuries, orthopedic injuries, spinal cord injuries or severe injuries to the brain, any type of injury requiring surgery to recover, as well as broken bones and fractures, amputations, and paralysis (paraplegia and quadraplegia).

Minor or less severe injuries would still warrant some compensation for pain and suffering- because even if you did not fall through a skylight on a construction job- you still had some suffering as a result of that rear-ended car accident (even with minor property damage). Leave it to your attorney to fight for you to obtain as much of a recovery as possible for your injuries, treatment and the impact of the accident on your life and well-being.

What Types of Damages are Recoverable in a Medical Malpractice Claim?

The types of money damages your attorney can recover for you in a medical malpractice or med mal claim include special damages, general damages and punitive damages:

What are Special Damages?

Special damages compensate you for your financial losses in a certain scope. The scope covers medical bills (past and future), loss of income or earnings, prescriptions for medications and more. In terms of medical bills, doctor and hospital bills and any other bill from a medical provider or healthcare professional would be included and covered. For example, this would include a pain management doctor, a chiropractor, a facility for an MRI, a surgery center, an outpatient facility or any other doctor or provider.

What does it mean when your attorney tells you can get General Damages in your Settlement?

General damages compensate a victim for damages that do not have an exact dollar amount allocated to them. This would be for example the loss of enjoyment or ability to do things once enjoyed between two spouses or husband and wife and is called loss of consortium. Pain and suffering is another legal term given which falls under the category of general damages. The amount of pain and suffering in a car accident case with minor damage to the vehicle and to its passenger would be different from the pain and suffering allocation for a victim of a construction accident that falls through a skylight and requires back surgery.

What exactly are Punitive Damages?

Punitive damages are permitted in medical malpractice claims but the law does require the conduct of the physician or doctor to be so outrageous and reckless to qualify for this level of punishment. Punitive damages intend to punish the person that must pay them. A doctor that is under the influence of drugs or alcohol while permitting a surgery may be found to be so reckless that punitive damages are warranted.

At the end of the day, what will be awarded by a court or judge or settled between an insurance company and the victim varies on a case by case basis. But the general rule for medical malpractice claims is that these three types of monetary damages are allowed and recoverable.

Cash Funding for Legal Personal Injury Cases Taken to Litigation

If you have a current or pending personal injury case that involves medical malpractice, a construction accident, an automobile accident, a dog bite attack, slip and fall or premises liability cause of action, or anything related to a negligent third party causing you a direct injury and harm, your case may qualify for legal cash funding that is similar to a lawsuit loan or cash advance. Cases that are litigated typically take many months to years to resolve (anywhere from 6 months up to 2 years). The increasing cost of litigation and burden of prosecuting your case makes a potential settlement distant and in the far future.

Victims of personal injury accidents who suffer serious injuries like paralysis, burns, broken bones, amputations, orthopedic injuries and more may not have the time or ability to wait to receive their settlement to continue living their daily lives and affording their daily expenses. When a car accident is involved, often times our clients have many fees and expenses to pay and they cannot afford to wait for the insurance company to give in or make a low offer or settlement. In these situations, pre-settlement lawsuit funding makes a lot of sense- especially when the case has a significant potential settlement recovery.

Cash funding for a lawsuit is a popular and convenient option. It allows you a break from stress and worry about how to support your family or loved ones through times of desperation and difficulty, especially where the injuries are life-altering and even permanent. Consider settlement cash lawsuit funding for your case. You can let your attorney know you are interested. We at High Rise Financial will work hand in hand with your attorney of record or law firm to determine whether the facts of your case qualify for a cash loan or funding. Our team of specialists at High Rise are at your disposal with one phone call to (310) 876-8086.

Construction Accidents Caused by OSHA Violations

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (also known as OSHA) has many rules and guidelines regarding safety in the workplace. Many of these rules govern construction sites including precautions that must be taken with regard to construction workers. For example, everything from roofing to electrical work on a construction site has rules and regulations. The employer or supervisor of the facility or construction site can be cited and fined for any OSHA violations. Unfortunately, construction accidents resulting in serious injury like paraplegia, paralysis, broken bones, fractures, and even wrongful death do occur.
