Traumatic Brain Injury: The "Silent" Menace

April 24, 2010 @ 12:45 PM — by Mark Johnson

Every year at least 1.4 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury. Unfortunately just about 50,000 people die as a result of their injuries. Most often injuries like this happen because of a traumatic blow or impact. Sadly, brain injury may also be the result of medical malpractice. Anytime someone has a brain injury, the consequences are always serious and in many instances, life-altering.

If a brain injury is the result of medical malpractice, this means the doctor provided substandard care to the patient. That negligence may come in many forms that include misdiagnosing or not diagnosing a condition, not properly giving anesthesia, a surgical accident (a slip of the scalpel while working on the brain) or the interruption of blood flowing to the brain.

In any case that involves head trauma, aneurysms or brain tumors, severe brain injury or death may be the end result if the condition is left untreated. Injuries of this nature have devastating consequences for those who have been hurt, and affect many areas of their lives. Victims may be dealing with speech impediments, paralysis, chronic pain, seizures, depression and astronomical medical bills. In addition, brain injuries impact on the whole family.

When a medical malpractice lawsuit is filed by victims/plaintiffs, they may be interested in knowing they may be able to access lawsuit funding. Money given in the form of a lawsuit cash advance against their future settlement or verdict is what we are talking about; it is also known as litigation funding.  It is not the settlement of the case; it is the purchase of or investment in a small part of your case. 

Why would you allow a company to invest in or buy a piece of your case?  Because many accident victims lack the money and staying power to compete with the insurance companies.  These powerful companies with "delay, deny, confuse, and refuse" and keep you waiting for justice for so long that you are ready to settle your case for any amount, even one that is pennies on the dollar.  A lawsuit cash advance from an experience legal finance company will provide you with the cash you need now to pay your mortgage, car payment, or other important bills.  It will also allow you to get the medical care, therapy or medication you need.  The application process is simple; you can apply by phone or on the web.  So, don't settle your valauble personal injury case for peanuts; get lawsuit funding instead and wait for appropriate compensation.
