What Sort Of Nursing Home Abuse Qualifies For This Funding?
A common type of nursing home abuse is general neglect. It happens when elderly residents get the type of care and attention needed by nursing home staff.
This general neglect also includes denying necessities like supervision, exercise, food, medical attention, water, and other requirements. There is also severe neglect that leads to repercussions such as skin irritation, bone fractures, starvation, bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, and unfortunately in some cases even death.
Injuries that qualify for lawsuit loans related to nursing home neglect can include:
- Mental Abuse

Understaffing Contributes to Nursing Home Abuse
Understaffing takes place when a nursing home doesn’t hire enough staff members to provide adequate, compassionate, and safe care. If federal nursing home figures are to be believed, at least 70% of nursing homes in the US are currently understaffed.
Residents in these long-term care facilities are at a higher risk of sedative overuse, bedsores, urinary tract infections (UTIs), medication errors, and failure to receive timely emergency care because of low staffing levels. There is a clear correlation between the quality of care provided and the staffing levels at a nursing home according to the Institute of Medicine.
Staffing issues generally take place because the owners and managers at the nursing home want to lower their costs and increase profits without considering the repercussions of putting the well-being of elderly residents at risk.
Nursing Home Abuse Claims Receive Large Settlements
According to figures released by Health Affairs, a nursing home negligence or abuse claim in the US usually results in a settlement of about $406,000 on average. Each claim is different and you may receive more or less than this amount. Based on this, in the recent past, there have been several nursing home claims that have settled for more than $1 million.
Recent Nursing Home Lawsuit Settlements
$13 Million for Wrongful Death in Kentucky
This settlement was awarded to the family of a former judge after the nursing home failed to give him his necessary medications, including antibiotics. The infection he was battling eventually took his life.
$8 Million for Sexual Abuse in Washington
The nursing home agreed to this settlement after repeated rapes of a resident by the staff member. The staff member was fired by the care facility, who was also later arrested. However, the damage from these unthinkable acts had already been done.
$6.75 Million for Sexual Abuse in Pennsylvania
This amount was awarded to an 86-year-old woman after she was sexually abused by another resident. She settled even though she won the court trial against the nursing home.
$1 Million for Wrongful Death in Massachusetts
Family members of an 89-year-old woman received this wrongful death settlement after the senior fell in a nursing facility. The staff failed to turn on the alarm that was to sound whenever the woman got up from her bed since she was a high fall risk. The staff could not get the woman to a hospital quickly enough, causing her death.
$740,000 for Elder Abuse and Neglect in Vermont

Nursing Home Lawsuit Funding is Different from a Loan
A lawsuit cash advance or pre-settlement loan is not a loan in the traditional sense. You don’t need to pay back anything unless your case is settled or you win a verdict. Direct Legal Funding requires clients to repay the money only if they win the lawsuit and recover a settlement amount.
If you lose the case and don’t settle, you won’t need to pay the lender any money. Direct Legal Funding provides pre-settlement loans at market competitive interest rates, with a quick and smooth application process, and follows a risk-free lending system.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I qualify for a nursing home lawsuit loan with Direct Legal Funding?
You may qualify for nursing home abuse lawsuit funding if you hired an attorney to represent you for your civil damages claim. Many abuse lawsuits are eligible for pre-settlement funding.
How long till I get my lawsuit loan?
After you sign and return the agreement to us, we will aim to release the funds in less than 24 hours. The process largely depends on the time taken by you and your attorney to complete the documentation and sign the agreement.
How much lawsuit cash advance can I qualify for?
You can request the funding amount you want in the application. We will determine the pre-settlement funds your nursing home abuse case is eligible for by evaluating your case and discussing it with your attorney.
How can I use the lawsuit funding?
There are no specific requirements or conditions for using the settlement loan money. You can use it for covering your essential expenses, such as living expenses, rent, medical bills and others, or even use the loan proceeds for any non-essential expenses you want.
What is the credit score impact of obtaining loans on pending lawsuit settlements?
There is no impact on the credit score or a credit check for obtaining the lawsuit cash advance. There is no risk to you since you don’t have to repay the lawsuit loan if you don’t win a settlement.
How can your settlement funding allow me to win a larger settlement from the defendant?
Personal injury claims can take months or years to resolve. Many victims experience financial difficulties, which compel them to accept a lower but early settlement offer. You can allow your attorney to negotiate from a position of strength or even go to trial when your immediate expenses are covered with a pre-settlement loan. With your ability to wait longer and negotiate patiently, you can take away the insurance company’s leverage.
Insurance companies routinely hold out on settling in the hopes the victim will lose patience and settle for a lower amount. By getting pre-settlement funding for your nursing home abuse lawsuit, you can give your case a real push and advantage for receiving your rightful compensation.
How Can Direct Legal Funding Help You With Nursing Home Negligence?
Each year, there are thousands of reports in the United States about neglect and abuse at nursing homes.
In one out of every ten nursing homes, severe abuse has been reported. It is believed that this increase can be attributed to an increased population of elderly people requiring care—but regardless, it’s a disgraceful situation for everyone involved.
The personal injury lawsuit helps curb this unacceptable behavior, and the victims are compensated for nursing home abuse. Without legal action against negligent facilities or staff members, the problem will only continue to grow worse.
