Chiropractic Treatment Table Crushes Toddler to Death says Litigation Funding Corporation
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) September 28, 2011 - Accidents can and do happen in the blink of an eye. This was a particularly heartbreaking case.
“This story started out as a routine visit to the chiropractor for Amy Newton,” reported Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation of Southfield, Michigan. “She took her three kids with her, including 18-month-old Benjamin. During the mother’s treatment, the baby crawled under the mechanized table and pushed the button that operated it. The table lowered and crushed the child to death.”
At the time of the accident, there were no staff members in the room with the woman and her children. When Newton started screaming, office staff immediately came into the room, raised the table and started CPR. Responding EMS crews rushed the child to hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The coroner’s report indicated he had died of head trauma, consistent with being crushed to death.
“Can the family file a wrongful death lawsuit? Possibly. They will certainly want to talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer and find out what their options are in that regard,” said Monroe. “In the meantime, there may well be a solid case to be made for negligence in leaving a patient unattended in a room, strapped to a table, with three unsupervised children present.”
Should the family choose to pursue a wrongful death case, they may also need financial assistance for medical bills and funeral costs while they wait for the litigation to conclude. The perfect solution could be lawsuit funding, which is a lawsuit cash advance that will help them make it to trial and pay outstanding debts. Litigation funding is advanced against the potential or future outcome of the case. It allows a plaintiff to get back on their feet financially without having to sacrifice a valuable personal injury lawsuit for pennies on the dollar.
Lawsuit financing, if the plaintiff’s case is approved, typically arrives within 24 to 48 hours as most “lawsuit loan” companies understand the need for promptness in these situations. Injury victims should use the money wisely to pay important bills and expenses while waiting for justice to be served.
They now have the luxury of turning down inadequate insurance company offers, and if they eventually lose their case their financial obligation to the lawsuit funding company is completely excused. They keep the money and do not have to pay it back. “Litigation funding, also referred to as pre-settlement funding, can be a very wise thing to do in the right situation – it is worth checking into,” Monroe said.
