Supporting Victims of Defective Medical Devices with Pre-Settlement FundingSeptember 24, 2015
More than two years after her husband Jerry’s untimely death, “Gillian” (not a real person) and her three daughters have begun to adjust to a “new normal.” Unfortunately, it’s a lot harder to make ends meet in the new normal. The payout from the life insurance policy provided by Jerry’s employer had kept a roof over his surviving family’s head, but the loss of his salary had changed everything.
Gillian, who’d put her career on hold after her first child, no longer was able to participate in her daughters’ lives the way she had when Jerry was alive. She had returned to the workplace but had been able to find nothing but part-time jobs. No longer able to afford the meals she had once prepared for her family, Gillian now shopped for price and convenience over quality. Her smaller budget had frozen the girls’ college savings accounts since Jerry’s death, and the annual family week at the shore was a thing of the past. Plus, the minivan needed new tires and more than $1,000 worth of brake work, and Gillian didn’t know how she would afford it.
Jerry had suffered a mild aneurysm while relaxing in front of the television set after work one evening, but he wasn’t supposed to die from it. He had, in fact, been discharged from the hospital after surgery to implant an intravenous filter that was supposed to prevent blood clots from reaching his heart. He seemed okay. A week later, he was dead. A blood clot had reached the filter, but instead of being stopped in its tracks, the clot pushed the filter into Jerry’s heart, causing a fatal heart attack.
With her attorney’s guidance, Gillian sued the manufacturer of the medical device; her attorney told her a settlement was likely. That didn’t help Gillian’s finances in the here and now, though, so her attorney recommended that she call USClaims.
