Funding Your IVC Filter Lawsuit

Jacky Gale | February 22nd, 2019

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are small devices implanted in the vena cava for the purpose of capturing blood clots before they can reach the lungs. A blood clot in the lungs, known as a pulmonary embolism, is a life-threatening event. Unfortunately, a number of patients have experienced significant medical complications from IVC filters, which have given rise to product liability lawsuits.

Although filing a lawsuit can be an effective way to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses, the litigation process is also time-consuming and expensive. This is why many plaintiffs are tempted to settle their lawsuits too soon and for less than what they deserve. But taking a small settlement offer is only a short-term solution, and it might not cover all of a family’s future medical costs and other losses.

Legal funding: A long-term solution

There’s another option for plaintiffs who desperately need cash now, but don’t want to settle for less than what they deserve. Legal funding is a completely legitimate, risk-free way to get the money you need now using your future jury award or settlement as collateral.

It’s not like a traditional loan from a bank or credit union. A traditional bank loan requires a credit check and employment verification, and you’ll have to start repaying it right away. With legal funding, there is no credit check, no employment verification, and you might never have to repay it.

Lawsuit loans are non-recourse. If your case gets dismissed or the jury finds in favor of the other party, you’ll owe nothing. If you do win your case or accept a settlement, you’ll pay back the cash advance at a reasonable interest rate.

How lawsuit loans can fund your IVC filter lawsuit

Many lawyers operate on a contingency basis. That means they don’t collect legal fees unless you win your case. However, you might still have other fees to deal with, like court filing costs and administrative fees. And because you or your loved one has been injured by an IVC filter, you undoubtedly have exorbitant medical expenses. Patients often find themselves unable to work for extended periods of time, which means they might end up losing their employer-sponsored insurance, not to mention all those lost paychecks.

Pre settlement loans can pay for all that and more. There are no restrictions on how you spend your cash advance. You could use it to keep your creditors off your back, pay the rent or mortgage, buy school supplies for your kids, or buy groceries. Remember: If you lose your case, you won’t repay a single cent.
