Waiting for a Morcellator Cancer Settlement? Legal Loans Can Help

Jenn Fusion | February 24th, 2016

lawyer and jurorsIt can take a year for a lawsuit to reach settlement or to have its day in court – and even longer for the money to reach the plaintiff’s bank account. When the lawsuit is filed over a power morcellation device causing uterine cancer, every day and every dollar counts.

According to the National Cancer Institute, the initial cost of treating uterine cancer is approximately $26,775 and $1,535 for each subsequent year of life. These sudden bills can be a crushing blow for many Americans already suffering the toll of day-to-day living expenses.

Fortunately, Law Street Capital offers immediate reprieve for plaintiffs with a substantial case who need a cash advance.

First morcellator cancer settlement reached

Scott Burkhart filed a 2014 lawsuit against Lina Medical on behalf of his deceased spouse, Donna, who died of uterine cancer 11 months after having a routine morcellator-assisted hysterectomy. The 53-year-old received her diagnosis just seven days after the procedure and had no known medical history of cancer. The case was set to go before a jury in November 2015 – ahead of 20 similar suits — but settled for a confidential sum outside court in July.

Many more favorable out-of-court settlements are expected in the road ahead, especially since manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson have issued recalls on power morcellators, the FDA has issued a statement discouraging the use of these devices on hysterectomy patients, and – most recently — the FBI joined the safety investigation.

Benefits of pre settlement loans

Beyond the monumental medical bills that pile up, cancer patients still have to contend with the day-to-day costs of utilities, car payments, mortgage payments, groceries, and holiday-related expenses. Often, patients can no longer work and, in some cases, a spouse may have to quit working to take on caregiving duties.

No one should have to suffer a hefty financial burden while battling cancer. LawStreet Capital is here to help with settlement advance loans for plaintiffs.
