    Uplift Legal Funding and Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Loans

    Medical procedures, whether elective or necessary, are a scary ordeal. Even if things go right, there can be a substantial recovery time and ‘normal’ side effects. These can hinder a person for weeks, months, or even permanently. Nothing is harder, however than when a doctor doesn’t proceed with the proper standard of care or makes a careless mistake. The effects of medical malpractice can result in additional surgeries, catastrophic side-effects, or even death. Uplift provides medical malpractice lawsuit loans to help you get by while waiting for your case to settle.

    What’s more, medical malpractice cases can take years to resolve, further adding to the stress of the recovery for the patient. The stress that results from these cases is immense. For some who can’t work and who have bills piling up, non-recourse legal funding or lawsuit loan can help.

    What is Medical Malpractice?

    Legal dictionaries define it as “improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, or other health care professional.” This can come in many forms, though. Doctors often fail to diagnose problems or give incorrect prescriptions.

    A surgeon can accidentally cut or damage surrounding organs or tissue. Other times, sanitary issues, improper bandaging, or neglect of a patient can cause damages. Some surgeons accidentally leave gloves or tools inside the body after they’ve sewed the patient up! The list goes on and on. One thing that is consistent in all instances of medical malpractice is that the grief it causes the patients and their loved ones is especially trying.

    Common medical malpractice claims

    Below we have listed some of the most common medical malpractice claims.

    • Misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis – the most common form of malpractice, it is when a doctor does not properly diagnose a condition when symptoms would be apparent to other physicians
    • Childbirth – when a doctor does not handle the baby correctly as it is being born
    • Anesthesia – there are multiple things that can go wrong when administering anesthesia, if a doctor has not gone through proper protocol it can lead to serious injuries
    • Infection – not properly disinfecting an area of the body that leads to infection
    • Medical errors – not properly looking at patient history before prescribing medication
    • Surgical errors – forgetting things inside of the body
    • Informed consent – not making sure the patient has given express informed consent about a procedure

    Who can be held liable

    There are several different parties that can be held liable for your medical malpractice lawsuit. Below we have listed several healthcare-related entities and whether or not you would be able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against them.

    • Doctors – because most doctors are independent contractors, lawsuits would have to be taken against them directly instead of the hospital
    • Medical practitioners – there is not much liability insurance covering medical practitioners and therefore you would have to go for the facility
    • Hospitals and facilities – you can sue the facility in lieu of a practitioner – this is called vicarious liability
    • Pharmaceutical companies – if the company failed to properly warn about hazards in their product you may seek compensation

    Qualifying for Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Loans

    Getting lawsuit funding on your medical malpractice claim is easy. If you can answer yes to the following, you could qualify:

    • Attorney – do you have an attorney handling your case?
    • 18 and above – are you 18 years old or older?
    • Documentation – does your attorney have documents showing your injuries and proving the doctor was negligent and legal pleadings?
    • Expert report or affidavit of merit – unless the case is very clear-cut, most funding companies require that one of these be available for review

    The application process takes only a brief phone call. If your case is qualified, we request and often receive case documents from your attorney soon after. Our underwriters review the information, speaking to your attorney if necessary, and see if your medical malpractice case is suitable for funding. Many times we have an answer to you within a matter of only a couple of days.

    Let us help you bridge the gap between injury and compensation. Apply online or give us a call to get started at (800) 385-3660.

    How Much is My Medical Malpractice Case Worth?

    Medical malpractice cases are tough to value because there are a few key issues that need attention. In many cases, an expert witness is needed to testify or report on how the defendant breached the standard of care.

    Even in cases without an expert, it needs to be determined that the doctor did something outside of the standard of care that caused harm. (Note: because many medications and procedures come with inherent risks, the damages caused by the malpractice must be outside of these normal risks.)

    Depending on the extent of the injuries and how egregious the malpractice was, these cases can settle for tens of thousands up to the millions, like the 2016 verdict for Celeste and Ignacio Trevino.

    How Long Will My Medical Malpractice Case Take to Settle?

    This is where insurance companies get you. Med mal cases are not easy to litigate. Between the cost and time of lining up experts and the more complex pleadings needed, these cases can take years.

    Insurance companies have the means to extend these cases legally by asking for additional documents and requiring additional medical exams, etc. They know that most plaintiffs can’t work and will need to settle the cases soon. This plays into their hands, and they can often settle for cases for lower settlements this way.

    One way to prevent that from happening is to get a medical malpractice lawsuit loan. With a lawsuit loan from Uplift Legal Funding, you will be able to make ends meet without worrying. As a result, insurance companies won’t be able to force you into taking a low settlement because you can’t work.
