neurological disorder lawsuit funding

Dealing with a neurological disorder injury from an accident is exhausting. The recovery process is long, painful, and stressful. On top of medical concerns, financial pressures can quickly mount.

Pre-settlement loans can provide the financial backing you need to manage daily expenses and medical bills related to your neurological condition while your lawsuit is being resolved.

Neurological Disorder Injuries Resulting from Negligence

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic Brain Injury is one of the most severe neurological disorders resulting from personal injury. TBIs can result from car accidents, falls, sports injuries, or any situation involving a significant impact on the head due to negligence. Symptoms can range from mild concussions to severe brain damage, including headaches, dizziness, cognitive impairments, and in severe cases, loss of motor functions or consciousness.

Damage to the Spinal Cord

Spinal cord injuries can result in partial or complete paralysis. These injuries often occur due to car accidents, falls, sports injuries, or workplace accidents resulting from negligence. Depending on the location and severity of the injury, individuals may experience paraplegia (paralysis of the lower body) or quadriplegia (paralysis of all four limbs).

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy involves damage to the peripheral nerves, causing numbness, pain, and weakness, usually in the hands and feet. This condition can result from physical trauma in workplace accidents or medical negligence during surgery. Symptoms typically include numbness, tingling, pain, and muscle weakness.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy, although usually associated with birth injuries, can also result from medical negligence during childbirth. Mismanagement of childbirth, such as improper use of forceps or failure to address fetal distress, can cause brain damage leading to cerebral palsy. Individuals with cerebral palsy may experience motor function impairments, muscle stiffness or floppiness, and coordination issues.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition typically affecting a limb after an injury. It is believed to result from damage to, or malfunction of, the peripheral and central nervous systems. For example, a person who suffers a minor injury, such as a fracture due to a poorly maintained sidewalk, might develop CRPS. Symptoms include severe pain, swelling, and changes in skin color and temperature in the affected limb.

Financial Relief During Legal Battles

Injuries like these often bring hefty medical bills, ongoing care needs, and lost wages. Victims usually turn to personal injury lawsuits to get compensation. But let’s face it, legal battles can drag on, and the financial strain can add up fast. If you’re finding it hard to make ends meet while waiting for your case to settle, pre-settlement funding might be just what you need. It gives you the financial boost to cover everyday expenses and those mounting medical bills.

What is Pre-Settlement Funding For Lawsuits Involving Neurological Injuries?

Pre-settlement funding, also known as litigation finance, is a type of cash advance available to plaintiffs involved in lawsuits, including those with severe neurological disorder injuries. This financial support helps cover current expenses while the case is resolving.

Importantly, it’s a non-recourse loan, meaning you only repay if you win your injury case. Your credit history doesn’t impact your eligibility.

Why Consider Pre-Settlement Legal Funding When Dealing with Neurological Disorders?

If you’re struggling with the costs associated with severe neurological injuries, legal funding can help you maintain stability and avoid settling your case for less than it’s worth. You can use the money for medical bills, rent, mortgage, and other living expenses.

Moreover, pre-settlement funding for neurological disorders can also assist you in covering the costs of potential treatments for serious neurological conditions that aren’t fully covered or partially covered by your insurance, such as:

  • Advanced Neurorehabilitation Programs: Intensive, multidisciplinary programs tailored to severe neurological injuries.
  • Neuropsychological Services: Cognitive rehabilitation specific to brain injuries.
  • Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES): Specialized equipment and elective or experimental treatments.
  • Spasticity Management: Treatments like intrathecal baclofen pumps and botulinum toxin injections.
  • Robotic Gait Training: High-tech equipment and therapy.
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation: Specialized therapy for balance disorders.

Eligibility for Legal Funding

To qualify for legal funding, ensure you meet the following criteria:

  • Respected and Cooperative Personal Injury Attorney: Your attorney should be experienced in personal injury cases and willing to collaborate with us.
  • No Fault Accident: The incident shouldn’t be your fault, as fault can affect your eligibility.
  • Severe Neurological Disorder Injury: You must have sustained a severe neurological disorder injury.
  • A Strong Personal Injury Case: Your case should have solid evidence and a high chance of success.
  • Defendant’s Insurance Coverage Should Warrant Compensation: The defendant should have sufficient insurance coverage to provide adequate compensation.
  • You Must Live in a Fundable State: Make sure you reside in a state where legal funding is available.
  • No History of Fraudulent Claims: You should have a clean legal history with no previous fraudulent claims.

Neurological Disorder Injury Lawsuit Funding: Key Factors for Approval

Your compensation in a neurological disorder injury lawsuit depends on various factors, including fault laws like comparative fault or contributory negligence.

To get approved for legal funding through Baker Street Funding, your lawyer needs to provide strong evidence that the defendant’s negligence caused your neurological damage. Here are key factors that influence funding approval:

  1. Medical Records: Comprehensive records of all doctor’s visits are crucial to establish the onset and progression of neurological disorders. These records help demonstrate the link between the incident and your condition.
  2. Detailed Incident Reports: Comprehensive accounts of the incident, including eyewitness testimonies and expert reconstructions.
  3. Diagnostic Imaging: High-resolution images such as MRIs, CT scans, and EEGs to provide visual evidence of neurological damage.
  4. Neurologist Reports: Detailed medical evaluations that explain the progression, severity, and permanency of the neurological injury. They should clearly explain how the neurological injury was directly caused by the defendant, how the symptoms manifested soon after the incident to rule out other potential causes.
  5. Neurosurgeon Post-surgical Assessments (if applicable): Expert opinions on the necessity of the surgery, assessments of structural damage to the brain and spinal cord, functional impairments, and surgical outcomes.
  6. Orthopedic Surgeon (Specializing in Spine): Assessment of the nature of spinal damage and its neurological consequences.
  7. Neuropsychological Assessments: Evaluations that document cognitive, emotional, and behavioral changes resulting from the injury. 
  8. Physiatrists. Detailed documentation of functional disabilities and rehabilitation needs, tailored to your specific condition.
  9. Post-Op Reports and Costs: Details of injections (such as corticosteroids, epidural steroids, nerve blocks, botulinum toxin) and surgery reports (including decompression surgery, spinal fusion, discectomy, laminectomy, nerve repair/grafting, deep brain stimulation, or craniotomy).
  10. Potential Future Complications. Long-term treatment plans including ongoing physical, occupational, and speech therapy sessions, regular consultations with neurologists, chronic pain management, and potential future surgeries.
  11. Future Medical Expenses. Examples of specialized treatments that may be needed include neurostimulation therapy or deep brain stimulation (DBS) maintenance.
  12. Health Insurance Coverage: If you have insurance, detailed records of your insurance plan specifying which expenses are covered and which will require additional payment.
