Legal Cases Often Devalued When Victims Avoid Surgery Due to Financial Hardship
NEW YORK, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's not always easy for victims to get the care they deserve after suffering an injury as a result of an accident or defective product. This is particularly true when they lack health insurance or the ability to pay for costly surgery. In this situation, they simply never receive the proper care all while bills begin to pile-up. That's where a company like Pegasus Legal Funding comes in. Pegasus is equipped to help victims with everything from surgical funding needs to various other expenses that they face until their lawsuit is successfully resolved.
"The unfortunate part is that in cases such as these, victims often miss work due to their injury and they aren't able to take care of day-to-day expenses. So, not only are they put in a position where they can't afford necessary surgeries, but they are also struggling to pay for basic necessities," said Angeliz Rodriguez of the Pegasus servicing department. "We're able to take some of the financial stress off, plus, we work directly with a client's physician to have all the payments taken care of," Ms. Rodriguez added.
Unfortunately, when victims are injured, even when it's no fault of their own, there is no guarantee that they'll get the proper treatment needed. It's imperative that victims in need of surgery as a result of an accident reach out for monetary assistance. Lawsuits stemming from an accident or faulty product often take years to conclude, which in most cases, is much too long for victims to wait to address their injuries. The other downside to avoiding necessary surgery is the fact that insurance companies often devalue cases if a victim doesn't go through with it.
"Insurance companies will use the fact that a plaintiff hasn't had surgery as a way to prove that the alleged injury sustained wasn't as severe as claimed," said Ms. Rodriguez. "This practice reduces the overall case value"
The funding provided by Pegasus allows victims and their lawyers to properly fight for what they are entitled to under the law. With medical care, travel expenses and day-to-day costs taken out of the equation, victims can focus on getting the settlement they deserve.
