Yes, if you are suffering because of a defective medical device, medical lien funding is applicable to your case. Here at High Rise Financial, we provide pre-settlement medical funding to clients involved in a wide variety of personal injury cases. Defective medical devices can cause patients a lot of pain and cause all sorts of medical problems.
The medical device manufacturer may not want to accept the blame for your health issues and will fight you (and others, if it becomes a class action lawsuit) for months, if not years. In the meantime, you need medical treatment you can’t afford. In this situation, medical lien funding could be a good, risk-free solution.
If you apply and are approved for pre-settlement medical funding, we can help you schedule your first doctor’s appointment. We can also help coordinate surgery. We have a network of lien-based doctors, surgery centers, and hospitals that we work with.

More About Defective Medical Devices
Medical advances over the years have helped millions of people deal with pain, mobility issues, and other health problems. The majority of medical devices are proven to be safe and effective, turning the medical device industry into a $400 billion money-making machine. The problem comes when devices don’t work the way they are supposed to.
Some of the most widely known defective medical devices include:
- Hip Implants
- Spinal Cord Stimulators
- Insulin Pumps
- Transvaginal Mesh
According to an Associated Press investigation, among the 4,000 types of devices the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tracks, metal hip replacements, insulin pumps, and spinal cord stimulators cause the most injuries to patients. Faulty medical devices have caused more than 80,000 deaths since 2008 and left millions of people suffering.
Recalls, Corrections, and Removals of Defective Medical Devices
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates medical devices and lays out what is supposed to happen when a manufacturer discovers they have defective medical devices on the market. Your personal injury lawyer will be well-versed in all of these regulations and will use them to help show negligence on the part of the medical device manufacturer involved in your case. But the whole process of initiating a recall, making the correction, and removing the device can take years.
You don’t have that kind of time and need to take care of medical issues resulting from the defective device now. But you don’t have the kind of money it will take to help you recover your good health.
Paying the Bills Associated with Faulty Medical Devices
In some cases, if you’re insured, your health insurance company might pay the bills for treatment and surgery associated with your faulty medical device. You would still have to pay the copays and deductibles specific to your insurance plan. Your insurance company will likely file a medical lien on any settlement you receive, in order to recoup their money.
If you are not insured, you’re wondering what to do. That’s where medical lien funding comes in. With this type of funding, High Rise Financial pays all of your medical bills associated with problems resulting from your faulty medical device. This allows you to get the medical treatment you need without financial stress.
You then pay us back when your case settles. And as we said before, this is a non-risk financial and medical solution. That’s because if you lose your case, you don’t have to pay us back.
