Types of Injuries Covered by Cash Funding

High Rise Financial provides cash funding for your lawsuit or legal case which involves personal injuries such as brain injuries, broken bones, amputations, paralysis, burn injuries, spinal cord damage, back pain and more. Depending on the circumstance and scenario of your personal injury accident, and liability against the at-fault defendant, you may be eligible for cash pre-settlement funding. Such legal funding is similar to a lawsuit loan but it is distinct in that the cash advanced need only be repaid if your case settles and if you are successful.

If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident or auto accident, slip and fall, dog bite attack, construction accidents, wrongful death cases, medical malpractice or by a defective medical product, contact High Rise Financial to qualify for access to lawsuit funding.

When the injuries are serious and the medical bills pile up, cash funding can make all the difference. You can continue to obtain medical treatment and necessary surgeries, pay for your living expenses and bills all while your attorney continues to prosecute your case on your behalf for the best possible financial settlement.

How Medical Devices Cause Injury

Medical devices can be defective or poorly designed leaving them to cause harm and bodily injury to the recipient of the device. A very common medical device that has been found to cause such injuries is a transvaginal mesh implant. Such implants seek to remedy conditions like stress urinary incontinence or a prolapsed pelvic organ. However, transvaginal mesh implants have been recently discovered to cause a host of other issues and complications such as erosion, scarring, damage to the nerve and organ perforation. Such devices are considered to be high risk for this exact reason.

While seeking to cure one problem, these implants create many more due to their poor design. The consequences are life-threatening. Transvaginal mesh implants are just one of the types of defective implants and products used in medical practice. Hip implants pose a similar concern and create a problem for users of those devices as well.

If you or a loved one used a medical device implant and were harmed, and have an ongoing legal claim or case against the manufacturer, you may be entitled to cash funding for your lawsuit.

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.

How Wrongful Death Actions Work

The loss of a loved one is always devastating, but it may be even harder to deal with when it is a preventable death that was caused by the negligence or direct action of an entity or another person. A family member’s death might also impose a significant financial burden upon the survivors. Even if a family is aware they might be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Los Angeles or elsewhere in California, they may not have the cash up front to afford to do so. However, they may be able to obtain legal funding for their wrongful death claim from High Rise Financial, commonly referred to as a lawsuit loan or cash advance.

What Types of Deaths Lead to Wrongful Death Lawsuits?

If a person dies because of a faulty product or the actions of another person, it may be possible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Car accidents, plane crashes and accidents at work could all be reasons to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Medical malpractice could also result in a wrongful death lawsuit. Finally, if one person kills another, that person could be sued for wrongful death. For a lawsuit to be successful, it is necessary to prove that the actions or negligence of the other person or party caused the death.

Restrictions in Wrongful Death Lawsuits

It is necessary for a wrongful death lawsuit to be timely filed and to be filed by the right person or party. The amount of time a person has to file a lawsuit varies according to the specific situation. For example, there is a general two-year limit in California, but for medical malpractice and some other types of cases, it could be less. People who are not yet prepared to file a lawsuit may still want to consult an attorney to find out how much time they have.

The person may also want to talk to the attorney about who may file the lawsuit. In general, a person’s spouse or children or others who were dependents can file a claim, but there may be other elements to consider as well.

Among the damages that may be sought in a wrongful death lawsuit are funeral costs, medical expenses, loss of companionship and loss of income from the person who has died. In addition to consulting an attorney about the specifics of the case, you can apply to see if you or a loved one qualifies for legal cash funding to pursue your wrongful death action or legal case.

Applying is easy; you can call us at  866-407-6404 to speak with a funding specialist about the facts of your case or apply online.

Neck and Cervical Injuries

A neck strain or sprain may happen as a result of many different types of accidents. This could include a motor vehicle accident in which you are a driver, passenger, pedestrian, cyclist or motorcyclist. It could also include a fall, a sports injury, an accident with machinery or any other blunt force trauma that affects that head or neck. Click here to learn about the types of personal injury and accident cases we fund.

A neck injury may also be referred to as a cervical strain or sprain. The vertebrae in this area are more vulnerable to injury because of their wide range of motion. This also means that if you have suffered a neck injury, it is likely to have a significant affect on your quality of life and your ability to perform everyday tasks. You may suffer a loss of flexibility and be unable to turn your head. The recovery time for this type of injury may be lengthy.

If you have suffered this injury because of the negligence of another party, you might have mounting medical expenses plus a loss of income from being unable to work. You may need cash for lawsuit. We may be able to help you get a lawsuit loan that will allow you to pursue a legal case.

Legal Funding for Injuries Caused by Defective Products

Defective products cause thousands of injuries in the U.S. each year. The injuries occur despite the efforts of state and federal agencies like the FDA, USDA and other safety offices that research products and issue product warnings and recalls. We interact with a wide range of products that could cause injuries and are potential safety hazards when they do not operate as intended. Automobiles, pharmaceuticals, children’s toys, high chairs, baby cribs and even car seats have caused serious injuries and deaths.

Defective products are oftentimes the result of design defects, which are flaws in the product’s design, even though the product was manufactured perfectly. For instance, a defective automobile design in the Ford Pinto had caused their gas tanks to explode after read-end collisions. Without regard to the cause, if a defective product causes injury, you have a right to compensation. When manufacturers, government oversight, and other businesses fail to meet their obligations in providing safe products, you may have to initiate legal action in order to get a full, fair and just settlement. In most instances, the defective products come from well-financed companies including large manufacturers and distributors. These companies have large amounts of funds, experienced attorneys and investigators to resist claims; these parties have far more resources than the injured victims that attempt to get compensation for their losses and injuries as a result of using their defective or poorly designed product. Many victims accept inferior settlements that do not fully address the extent of their past and future losses because they do not have sufficient financial leverage to wait out the fight.

A deep-pocketed defendant or insurance company is a difficult barrier to recovery in a product liability case. The case can take a long time to develop due to the need for extensive investigation and experts. The process is difficult and can be extremely stressful for the victims.  However, if you have been injured by a defective product, you can get compensation for past medical expenses, future costs, lost wages or business income and pain and suffering.

To qualify for pre-settlement legal funding for your lawsuit, where we provide you with access to money to keep you afloat while your product liability case works its way through the courts or to settlement, you must first have legal representation for your case. You can then submit an application on our website or by phone and our underwriters will evaluate your claim to determine whether you’re eligible or not.
