NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Case Funding Inc. is now extending its legal finance programs to plaintiffs and attorneys involved in Medtronic Inc. Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator product litigation. Case Funding is one of a limited number of specialty finance organizations providing business financing for law firms and medical funding for plaintiffs. This critical service assists attorneys in launching successful legal actions and provides medical care financing to uninsured plaintiffs immediately rather than at the time of award or settlement – which could potentially take years.
"As an advocate for victims of pharmaceutical products and other personal injury accidents, Case Funding is always actively expanding its funding capabilities to provide relief to victims, their families, and law firms who need the appropriate funds to launch a successful action against negligent companies." states Richard Silverstein, President and CEO of Case Funding.
In October, 2010, Medtronic settled their Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator class action lawsuit for $268M, which according to most reports, should average out to $33,000 per plaintiff. Of course, depending on the injury, the award could be much greater.
The defibrillators, specifically model No.'s 6930; 6931; 6948 and 6949, which were recalled in October, 2007 are made to provide an electric shock to the heart in the event of cardiac arrest. In some instances, the devices, and the wire leads, malfunctioned causing premature shocks and/or failed to provide a shock when most needed. In some cases, the injuries led to death. For many others, the defective device required subsequent surgery to repair or replace the faulty leads.
