As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to ravage the world, local, state, and federal governments continue to warn people with pre-existing conditions to take extra precautions. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns that “people of all ages with underlying medical conditions, particularly if not well controlled, are at a high-risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Among the conditions that put people at extra risk are the following:
- Lung disease or asthma
- Serious heart conditions
- Anything that causes a person to be immunocompromised, such as receiving treatment for cancer, being a smoker, HIV or AIDS, or prolonged use of immune weakening medications
- Severe obesity (body mass index of 40 or higher)
- Chronic kidney disease
- Liver disease (Source: cdc.gov).
People with injuries resulting from accidents, including work-place accidents should also be careful. During your recovery period, if you become sick with COVID-19, it may affect the outcome of your case. Where you contracted COVID-19 may be difficult to prove. Was it from work? Was it from a medical provider? Was it at the supermarket? The worst-case scenario is your death. Dead people cannot sue. Only your heirs are able to maintain wrongful death cases.
To bridge the financial gap during your recovery period, consider applying for pre-settlement funding today.
What You Can Do
Benjamin Franklin once mused, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound in a cure.” Now more than ever this adage rings true. Recovering from your injuries, whether your accident occurred at work or some other place, should be your top priority. Avoiding any additional injuries, including contracting the COVID-19 virus, is important. A COVID-19 illness will affect the outcome of your case by interfering with your ability to participate in its adjudication and triggering more medical reviews.
What We Do
Capital Financing provides pre-settlement loans to people hurt on or off work who file lawsuits or claims. The types of cases we fund are car accidents, biking accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall or premise liability accidents, medical malpractice, products liability, dog bites, and assault cases. We provide a loan or advance against your personal injury settlement or workers’ compensation award before your case is complete.
How it Works
To determine a loan amount, we carefully review your case by examining documents related to your lawsuit, including medical records, accident reports, and employment records. We pay attention to things such as the injuries you have sustained, the medical treatment you have received, the extent of your property damage, and the amount of time-off or lost wages you have incurred. We also review the litigation file or claim documents filed by your attorney to understand your legal matter better.
