Legal Loans Can Help Valsartan Lawsuit Plaintiffs

Staff Writer | February 22nd, 2019

Currently, a number of lawsuits against the manufacturers of Valsartan are pending in courts across the country. The drug, originally prescribed for high blood pressure and other manifestations of heart disease, was apparently contaminated during the manufacturing process with chemical compounds N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA). The compounds have the potential to cause cancer.

The first of these lawsuits, alleging that Valsartan caused a patient to develop colorectal cancer, was recently brought before the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas.

Although the FDA recalled Valsartan in mid 2018, many patients had been taking the drug for a number of years. An FDA review and past studies both indicate that patients taking medications contaminated like this could develop a risk of cancer after four years of a regimen.

How legal loans can bridge the gap

If you or a loved one has filed a Valsartan lawsuit, or plans to take legal action, a successful claim can net damages for medical bills, hospitalizations, loss of wages stemming from the illness, required retraining, losses in quality of life, and loss of consortium.

Court cases, though, can be very lengthy, and appeals can extend the time even further.

If cancer and its treatment have caused you to miss work, made it difficult to continue working, and resulted in large medical bills, you may be very worried about how you can continue financially until your lawsuit is resolved.

Legal funding can be the answer. Legal loans provide the money to support you and your family financially while your case winds through the legal system.

Legal loans may not be for everyone. But for some folks, the financial help they offer can be a lifeline. Lawsuit funding is not like home or car loans. They don’t come from credit unions or banks. They’re more akin to cash advances.

If you win compensation in your case, you’ll pay the cash advance back at a reasonable rate of interest.

If you lose, you’ll never owe a cent. That’s right, you won’t owe anything if your case does not prevail.

Cash advance for Valsartan plaintiffs

One of the best aspects about legal funding is that you can use the money for anything, including your mortgage, your rent, your car payments, groceries, health insurance and other needs.

If you’re cash-strapped for these necessities and have a pending Valsartan case, it impairs your negotiating power. You may be tempted to settle for far less than your case is worth. Lawsuit advance funding provides the economic security needed to negotiate.
