Pre-Settlement Funding on Nursing Home Lawsuit Settlements

TriMark Legal Funding is one of America’s premier lawsuit funding companies. Since 2003, TriMark has been providing fast, low-rate pre settlement funding and post settlement loans to plaintiffs in nursing home abuse and neglect cases.

Nursing home abuse and neglect extracts a heavy toll; not only from it’s victims, but from the victim’s family as well. Extra expenses and financial challenges are common. Nursing home abuse lawsuit loans from TriMark can help you get caught up financially, and stay caught up, until your case settles.

It’s painful to hear about the plight of some senior individuals in long-term care facilities. They can suffer physically, emotionally, and psychologically in the hands of negligent caretakers. Others may be mistreated through inadequate or intentional acts.

Nursing home residents have the right to file a claim against such actions, especially if their health and wellbeing are put in peril.

The elderly deserve fair compensation for their pain and suffering. However, pulling them out of the facility may mean additional costs on their family. They surely did not want to be a burden to anyone. But they also didn’t expect to be disrespected in a place filled with people they’re paying to look after them. 

Whether you are a victim of this abuse or a family member, you can rely on nursing home abuse lawsuit loans to avoid this kind of dilemma.

What is this, and how does it work? Get ready to delve deeper into this option.

    What Is Nursing Home Lawsuit Funding?

    Legal financing, otherwise known as pre settlement loans or post settlement funding, is a quick, non-compounding, non-recourse cash advance on your future settlement money.

    Let’s break that definition down:

    • Quick: Unlike traditional bank loans, which are can take time to obtain, this financial assistance is easy to access. Application is fast and easy. No paperwork related to your credit, income, or employment is necessary. 

    Here at TriMark, our sole basis is the merits of your case. We have streamlined our process to put cash in your hand as soon as tomorrow.

    • Non-compounding: We use 2x non-compounding rates, which caps the fees at double the advance you made. We’ve set this up to make sure you can still receive a good portion of your settlement’s net amount.
    • Non-recourse: This means that you won’t be required to pay monthly fees and interests. You will only have to return the advance plus fees when you get to collect your settlement check.

    What do you think about this setup? 

    If you’re wondering how much can you request, it’s as high as 20% of your case value. That is equivalent to $20,000 if your claim’s anticipated worth is $100,000

    Who Qualifies for Assisted Living Lawsuit Settlement?

    If you have a loved one who suffered from nursing home abuse, you may sue the administrator of the facility for negligence. You may recover damages in pursuing this case. It could be settlement or compensation. But in reality, you may not be able to cash it out right after the agreement or trial.

    Even those who have a strong case may fall prey to the tedious releasing process of insurance companies.

    • You have sustained severe physical injuries and financial losses.

    Common Cases of Nursing Home Abuse

    The seniors may be subject to different types of abuse when an assisted living facility tolerates negligence among its staff and administration. 

    They may fall victim to the following:

    • Neglect: Inconsistencies in check-ins, treatment of bed sores, and the like
    • Physical Abuse: Hitting and pushing
    • Mental / Psychological Abuse: Verbal abuse and withholding mail
    • Sexual Abuse: Taking advantage of the elderly for their sexual gratification
    • Exploitation: Solicitation of money or favors through manipulation

    How to Report It

    The Associated Press reported that many abuse claims assisted facility living go unreported. About 6,600 cases are not brought out to the attention of authorities.

    You may take the grievance to the nursing home administrator. But if you suspect them to be complicit, you can try the law enforcement in your area.

    Call 911 for emergency and urgent cases. This is the fastest and most practical means to respond to the nursing home resident’s situation. It will also alert the police regarding the negligent and dangerous acts taking place in the nursing home.

    If it’s not an emergency, you may report the case or any signs of abuse to the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) and the National Institute on Aging (NIA).

    Find out more about how you can protect yourself or your loved one from this type of mistreatment. Check out the resources on the official NCEA website.

    You may also get immediate assistance for injuries or illnesses from doctors and nurses you can trust.

    How Much Is My Nursing Home Litigation Worth?

    According to Health Affairs, the rate of recovery of damages among victims of nursing home abuse was 88% in the early 2000s. That was almost thrice the figure representative of medical malpractice (med mal) claims.

    Meanwhile, the average payout for either compensation or settlement was $406,000 in that same year. This amount was double what med mal plaintiffs take home.

    Some factors that may affect your settlement amount are the following:

    • Case type: A personal injury suit may be awarded less compensation than a wrongful death claim. The harm or injury suffered may also have some impact on the total settlement value.
    • Jurisdiction: Federal, state, and local laws may have various effects on your case.
    • Legal precedent: You and the defendant may use previous compensations and settlements to determine the sweet spot.
    • Case strength: The other party may make a lowball or, worse, zero offer if they find your case weak enough to win in court. 

    Knowing you or your loved one has a high chance of winning, you’ll probably regret it if you pass up on it. The best course is to stand your ground when the defendant is intentionally testing your patience and resolve.

    The money waiting for you at the end of the fight is going to be worth it. But while you wait, you don’t have to get buried in bills, debts, and expenses.

    A lawsuit settlement loan might be just what you need to root yourself in during these troubled times.

    How Long Will Your Trial Take?

    We are not a law firm, but we do get asked about the length of each case we fund. The harsh truth: years. But for nursing home litigation, your wait might last 18 months to two years.

    Court processes, the defendant’s persistent delays, and other events may affect how long your trial is going to be. Some defendants hire attorneys whose main job will be to antagonize you in every way possible.

    Again, they want to see you buckle under the pressure of it all. Through sufficient funds obtained through a settlement cash advance, you will be empowered to push back.

    It's been a year since Jan Garwood, a 72-year-old central Florida woman, won her freedom back and started trying to piece together what was left of her life. In 2017, Garwood was placed in an assisted living facility against her will. A judge had declared her mentally incompetent and put her in the care of a professional guardian to protect her health and finances. The system was supposed to help her. Instead, Garwood felt like a prisoner. She was stuck in a lockdown ward for three years, until a local activist and two attorneys managed to get her rights restored. By then, though, she'd lost more than three years. Her guardian had sold her house, leaving her temporarily homeless. All of her possessions were missing…. Read more

    A nursing home abuse lawsuit is a legal action taken against a nursing home for mistreatment of a resident. Most victims file civil lawsuits for compensation, though some may file criminal lawsuits for restitution. Many civil lawsuits end in settlements. Elder abuse is not a new problem, and it’s common, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While elder abuse can occur anywhere, a growing number of nursing home residents experience abuse. About 1.3 million Americans lived in nursing homes in 2015, according to the CDC. Nearly 1 in 3 nursing homes were cited for violations, according to data cited by the National Center on Elder Abuse. About 1 in 10 homes had violations that caused serious injury or harm. Some of these injuries were serious enough to be life threatening…. Read more
    An issue that doesn't get enough attention in this country is elder abuse. According to the Centers For Disease Control, more than 500,000 older adults over the age of 60 are neglected each year. And those numbers are probably low because a majority of cases likely go unreported. Nursing home neglect is a tragic but common problem in the United States. It occurs if a nursing home doesn't provide proper care to its residents which results in physical or mental health problems….

    Potential neglect and prolonged isolation may have caused serious harm to many people in nursing homes in the United States during the Covid-19 pandemic, Human Rights Watch said today. Interviews with more than 60 people, as well as reports from independent monitors, revealed concerns including extreme weight loss, dehydration, untreated bedsores, inadequate hygiene, mental and physical decline, and inappropriate use of psychotropic medications among nursing home residents. Staffing shortages, a longstanding issue that was a significant problem during the pandemic, and the absence of family visitors, many of whom nursing homes rely on to help staff with essential tasks, may have contributed to possible neglect and decline. Federal and state authorities should investigate the situation and ensure accountability for abuse…. Read more
    When you've made the tough decision to place a loved one in a nursing home, you expect them to receive quality care. That's what nursing homes are for, after all.

    In mid-April, Faith Heimbrodt got a call from the Bria Health Services nursing home in Geneva, Illinois, saying her mother, Carol Orlando, was not in good health. She immediately feared COVID-19. But she says facility staff insisted her 79-year-old mother didn’t show symptoms of the virus, and that her illness likely was due to her advanced dementia. Alarmed, she got permission to visit her mother, even though the facility had been on lockdown since March. Heimbrodt, who has five children at home and suffers from multiple sclerosis, went wearing a gown, respirator and face shield, but she was shocked to see staff and residents without masks. A desperate-looking certified nursing assistant asked how she got her respirator, so she gave it to him. Her mother’s room was filthy, with dirty diapers on the floor. Her roommate was coughing, unmasked, in the adjoining bed, with no room divider. Orlando looked thin… Read more
    Nursing homes are legally liable when one of their residents is injured in a slip and fall, but these cases also differ from other slip and fall lawsuits. Seniors are more likely to fall and more likely to suffer serious injuries due to their age and health conditions, and often the cause is not related to their surroundings. A fall in a managed care facility can happen the way these accidents typically take place, such as a person slipping on uneven carpet or on a wet floor, but that is often not the case. Instead, when an elderly person falls in a nursing home, it is typically because they weren’t adequately supervised. Here are more reasons a nursing home may be liable…. Read more
    Trans Healthcare Inc. has been hit with a $1.1 billion verdict in a negligence case filed in 2009 at a Florida nursing home it says it hasn’t operated since 2004, reports The Ledger. A Polk County jury awarded $110 million in compensatory damages and a whopping $1 billion in punitive damages for the 2009 lawsuit regarding the care of the late Arlene Townsend. Townsend lived at the Auburndale Oaks Healthcare Center from 2004 until 2007, when she passed away at the age of 69. Townsend suffered multiple falls while at the facility, which did not provide proper supervision, according to the lawsuit, The Ledger reports. Trans Healthcare Inc., the defendant in the lawsuit, and Trans Healthcare Management only operated the nursing home until Sept. 30, 2004, according to court records. Auburndale is currently being operated by Encore Healthcare LLC. “The companies stopped participating in the lawsuit, and a default judgment… Read more
