Kugel Mesh Hernia Lawsuit Settlement Funding Amounts Increased at Legal-Bay Funding.

Case Funding Firm to increase funding amounts on all settled Kugel mesh cases for plaintiffs who cannot wait to get their final payment.

BOSTON, Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that they are beginning to fund Kugel Mesh Hernia Lawsuit cases on a much larger scale now that most cases are beginning to wind down from an earlier settlement. In July 2001, an estimated $184 million was originally announced to settle a bulk of these cases and resolve the product liability lawsuits, which started after the Kugel Mesh Composix patch was recalled in 2005. The lawsuits allege that C.R. Bard's mesh patch caused serious medical complications for many patients including bowel perforation, sepsis, intestinal fistulas, and abdominal abscess formation. This settlement amount will pay plaintiffs about $70k on the average for their claims.

Although some cases may still be pending in the court, most have settled or are still waiting on payment as the administration of some claims are delayed for various reasons. Legal-Bay is an industry leader in mass tort lawsuit funding and while most firms are not funding Hernia Mesh cases, Legal-Bay is stepping up its efforts to assist victims of these specific cases because although many of the cases have begun to settle, there are plaintiffs who still have not been paid.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations, commented on the company's new focus, "We have been involved with the Kugel mesh pre-settlement funding for the last few years, however, now that a firm settlement is being reached on settlement amounts above $150K in some cases, we are able to aggressively increase our funding limits for settlement victims effective immediately. Our staff is prepared to have settled Kugel mesh cases approved and funded within 24 hours at the lowest rates possible so that some plaintiffs in need of cash to pay bills have access to it if they so choose."

Legal-Bay's programs are non-recourse lawsuit cash advances, also known as case funding. None of the programs should be considered to be a settlement loan, settlement loans, lawsuit loan, lawsuit loans, pre-settlement loans, or a pre-settlement loan.
