Lawsuit Cash for Pending Elder Abuse Claims

Steve Cid | April 20th, 2015

elderly patient with doctorElder abuse, according to the National Center on Elder Abuse, is defined as “any knowing, intended, or careless act that causes harm or serious risk of harm to an older person—physically, mentally, emotionally, or financially.”

Elder abuse comes in many forms, from obvious physical injury to more insidious and surreptitious emotional or financial abuse that can go unchecked for years. Threats, isolation, and rejection can be devastating to an elderly person as can theft, fraudulent acts, and abuse of authority for financial gain at the expense of the unwitting elderly victim.

Benefits of an elder abuse lawsuit loan

If you have filed a lawsuit based on allegations of elder abuse on behalf of yourself or a loved one, you’re well aware of the costs involved in sustaining a legal action that might in the end go nowhere.  While you battle your abuser in the courts, you continue to be hammered by the financial realities of life outside the courtroom. Your mortgage or rent, car payments, medical expenses, insurance, and all of life’s many expenses  need to be taken care of while your days are spent hoping to receive some measure of justice through the courts.

LawStreet Capital can provide the lawsuit cash you need to sustain yourself and your family with an elder abuse lawsuit loan. The word loan is a bit of a misnomer, because the invaluable funding you receive from LawStreet Capital is not a loan at all, but rather, a series of one or more risk free cash advances, known as a non- recourse loan, to allow you to stay current on your financial obligations while your lawsuit continues. If for any reason, you are not successful in your suit or if your case doesn’t settle or win, there is no obligation for you to repay LawStreet Capital.

Financial abuse is difficult to detect

Estimates of the numbers of abused, injured, or mistreated elders number somewhere between 1 and 2 million. Elder abuse, sadly, is grossly underreported. The National Center for Elder Abuse says that only 1 out of 14 elder abuse incidents are reported to the proper authorities.

One category of abuse that flies well under the radar is elder financial abuse partly because the abusive actions are many times undertaken by trusted family advisors using undue influence over an elderly person’s finances for personal gain. This type of abuse can go on for a long period of time without being noticed if done slowly and methodically to evade detection.

Look for evidence of unexplained changes in bank accounts, missing checks or checks made out to pay for gifts or loans, out of the ordinary withdrawals, risky investments, or wills that are altered. In many cases, bank accounts have been cleaned out and life savings lost due to financial abuse by unscrupulous financial advisors or seemingly well-meaning relatives, guardians, or caregivers.
