Lawsuit Cash Advance Creates Substantial Recovery Increase for Family Hit by Tragedy

Here is a wonderful example of how lawsuit funding can get plaintiffs the recovery they deserved.

Sadly, a woman lost her husband, and her two sons lost their father, after a fairly routine medical procedure went wrong, leading to the man’s death. The death was classified as a complication of a medical procedure. The man was family's sole means of support and his death was completely unexpected.

The widow retained a personal injury attorney and filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging doctor and hospital negligence. As the lawsuit wound its way through the legal channels, the insurance company was persistent in trying to reach a $250,000 settlement. This family lost a loved one and its principal means of support. Desperate for cash, the widow asked her attorney to accept the offer. Instead, the attorney recommended lawsuit funding so the family could wait for the settlement they deserved.

Through a series of lawsuit cash advances totaling $50,000, the family avoided foreclosure, paid medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and was able to keep food on the table until a settlement was reached. The case settled for just over $1 million, an incredible $750,000 increase over the offer they almost accepted out of serious financial need.

Medical malpractice lawsuits hold doctors, nurses, hospitals, and medical staff accountable when they do not provide the proper standard of care to patients. Unlike the injured, doctors and hospitals have “deep pockets” and the ability delay the legal process, forcing low settlements on medical malpractice victims who cannot afford to wait. Lawsuit Financial can help level the playing field with lawsuit funding. We are committed to assisting victims by providing a lawsuit cash advance prior case settlement. With our legal finance services personal credit is not affected and there are no monthly payments. The best part about out program is you don’t have to pay any costs out of your pocket whatsoever; and only have to pay the money back if your lawsuit is successful.

If you have filed a medical malpractice lawsuit, are represented by an attorney, and find yourself in a position of accepting a less-than-favorable settlement because you need cash now, call Lawsuit Financial or complete our online application. We may be able to help you get the money you need, when you need it most.

Injured Victims Improve Their Quality of Life with Litigation Funding

Auto accident lawsuit can take months or years to settle. This can make day-to-day living financially difficult for victims, especially for those who are living from paycheck to paycheck or lost the sole breadwinner. The medical bills and/or funeral expenses can make a serious dent on the finances of the family. This is when many plaintiffs will seek litigation funding.

A driver was killed when a truck tire became detached from a Ford F-450 with a tarp-covered trailer and bounced over a Pennsylvania median, smashing into an oncoming car. The truck driver did not have a valid driver’s license and left the scene of the accident. Neither the truck nor the trailer were insured. The victim’s wife, who was a backseat passenger, was not seriously injured. More than an hour later, during Channel 11 News, the truck was spotted and police were notified. The driver was taken into custody.

Hopefully, the couple had uninsured/under-insured coverage on their policy. In either evident, receiving fair compensation may take months, even years. Once a lawsuit is filed, the widow may be suffering financially due to an avoidable tragedy. She has funeral expenses, her own medical expenses, and quite possibly other bills that are piling up due to lost wages. Lawsuit Financial can help her with immediate cash needs. We are a litigation funding company providing financial assistance in advance of an expected settlement or verdict in a pending case.

Securing a lawsuit cash advance can help pay funeral expenses, medical bills, mortgage, credit card debt, and other out of pocket expenses. Litigation funding can also help avoid the pressures of settling too soon, for too little. All that is needed to qualify is to be represented by an attorney and have a viable case. There is no need for credit checks or employment verification. If approved, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Our lawsuit funding is on a non-recourse basis, meaning if you lose your case, you owe us nothing. Furthermore, there are no out of pocket expenses or monthly payments.

Once we received your application and case documentation from your attorney, if approved, you can have cash in hand in less than 24 hours.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Results in $9M Award

If a loved one was fatally injured by the negligence or wrongdoing of another and you have filed a wrongful death lawsuit, you may be eligible for lawsuit funding as a cash advance against your future settlement. Many families need wrongful death lawsuit funding to help with the financial burden of medical expenses, lost wages and funeral expenses. With lawsuit funding, plaintiffs can obtain a larger settlement since they have time to fight for justice.

A $9 million lawsuit was recently settled out of court in the wrongful death of a man who died in a fiery accident after a truck driver had a seizure and drove into oncoming traffic. The truck driver experienced a prior seizure three weeks before the fatal accident although a physician allegedly cleared him to continue driving. The physician contends that he was not informed of the prior seizure. The U.S. Department of Transportation prohibits a truck driver from working for up to ten years if suspected of a seizure. The wrongful death lawsuit was filed by the victim's sons.

The vast majority of wrongful death cases take longer than this one as it winds through the litigation process. All too often, the insurance companies will "delay, deny, confuse and refuse." However, this may not always be the case; damage recovery does not always require a trial and jury verdict.

Even when a settlement can be reached in a year, plaintiffs can struggle financially. Whether you settle in or out of court, victims are often forced, by financial circumstances, to consider settlements too early and for too little. A lawsuit cash advance would allow you to get cope financially while awaiting a fair resolution. You won't have to take an unreasonably low offer, just because you are desperate for cash now.

If you were injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident, it is important to contact an attorney to help recover compensation for your loss. Next, contact Lawsuit Financial. We provide lawsuit funding to take care of life's necessities, such mortgage, rent, car payments, medical expenses, and funeral expenses to reduce your financial pressures. In most cases, lawsuit funding is readily available within 48 hours. There are no fees to apply, no credit check, no job requirement, no payments to make. And, if you lose the case, you keep the money free of charge. Call or visit us online to learn more about our no risk wrongful death lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit Financial is making the Holidays Brighter for Personal Injury Victims

Lawsuit Financial is continuously working hard to put smiles on the faces of many financially-strapped plaintiffs and their families who might otherwise go without during this holiday season.
Recently, another attorney nominated a client for our Adopt-a-Family program. The client is a mother of two children, ages six and three who is literally homeless. She was severely injured and disabled in a car accident in 2014. Unable to drive to and from work, she lost her job. Her wish list this holiday season includes blankets and child size hats, gloves, scarves, and snow suits.

Without the benefit of an “adoption,” families like this would be looking forward to a very grim holiday. “Having an injured family member is difficult enough,” explains Mark M. Bello, an attorney and also the company’s founder and CEO. “When you add to it the financial stress of the holiday season, it’s almost like suffering through the injury again. We wanted to help make the holidays a little happier for these families’ with our Adopt-a-Family program and honored that the Michigan Association for Justice has joined us.”

Our program is a little different and with a more personal touch because attorneys are anonymously matched to a plaintiff and we actually ask the families to provide a wish list of the things they would like to receive. Our team compiles the wish lists for the attorney matched with each client. Once all shopping is concluded, Lawsuit Financial uniquely packages each bundle of gifts and ensures that the families receive them during the week before Christmas.
Since inception, Lawsuit Financial has helped thousands of plaintiffs and continues to be a recognized industry leader by law firms’ nationwide, citing trust between the funding company, client and attorney as the first step in litigation funding.

Litigation Funding Can Help Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

In the early morning on November 16, the driver of a Mazda 3 lost control and struck a parked SUV. According to police, "the force of impact pushed the on to the sidewalk. The driver and one passenger were treated for injuries; another passenger remains in critical condition. Fortunately, there was no one walking on the sidewalk at that hour. The accident is remains under investigation, although it appears the driver of the Mazda was driving while under the influence of alcohol.

If someone is injured or killed as a result of a driver under the influence, the injured party or a loved one may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver. An experienced auto accident attorney can help determine a victim's rights and seek compensation for damages incurred. Compensation may include medical expenses, lost income, and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.

It can take months and sometimes years to get a personal injury case resolved. In the meantime, victims may face financial burdens. The team at Lawsuit Financial knows how difficult this can be, how frustrating it is to negotiate with an insurance company that will attempt to convince you to settle for less than case value, and the temptation of that low settlement when you are strapped for cash. Lawsuit funding may be just the answer.

When you are injured due to someone else’s’ negligence and unable to work yet the bills keep coming, consider lawsuit funding. Lawsuit funding is not a loan, but rather a non-recourse cash advance meaning if you lose your case, you owe us nothing! Unlike a traditional loan, there are no monthly payments and we do not require a credit check or employment verification. If approved, funds can be wired into your account within 24 - 48 hours.

Don’t let the insurance company force you to take a small settlement. Call Lawsuit Financial to learn how we may be able to help secure the money you need to pay bills while waiting for fair compensation.

Get the Message on Lawsuit Funding

Despite increased public awareness and laws designed to warn drivers about the dangers of texting and driving, serious auto accidents happen every day as a result of drivers preoccupied with their cell phones. When situations like these arise, accident victims are often left with severe, life-changing injuries. Even worse, victims often face extensive medical bills and lost wages. Adding insult to injury is the insurance company’s less-than-fair settlement offer. While an experienced auto accident attorney can help obtain justice and full case value, Lawsuit Financial can provide a lawsuit cash advance to pay the bills and stay financially afloat.

A man was seriously injured when a texting driver crossed the center line and struck his Ford Explorer. The Explorer flipped before coming to a rest in the median. Police said he is lucky to be alive. The distracted driver escaped with minor injuries.

Clearly, a driver looking at a cell phone to read a text message is an accident waiting to happen. This is not mere speculation; it is fact. It takes on average 5 seconds to look at a text message. It seems like “no time” at all, right? Think again. At highway speeds, 5 seconds is enough time to travel the length of a football field. It is, absolutely, enough time to risk your life and others. No text message or phone call is so important that you have to endanger your life or the lives of others. Lawsuit Financial urges all drivers to shut off their phones before they get behind the wheel.

Despite the studies, research, public awareness, and devastating headlines, many people will still engage in distractions behind the wheel. No matter the type of accident you or your loved ones have been in, you may be experiencing significant physical, emotional and financial losses. Don’t be forced to accept a low ball settlement from the insurance company just to make ends meet. Lawsuit Financial is a leading provider in the legal funding industry. Auto accident lawsuit funding is provided to people who are injured or disabled in an accident and suffer financial setbacks as a result. Find out how lawsuit funding can help pay the bills so you can wait for the compensation you deserve. Contact Lawsuit Financial today.

Financial Solutions for Litigants in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

One of the most common causes of auto accidents on our roadways is fatigue; it is not be illegal, but it can be lethal. If you drive drowsy, you are putting yourself and others at risk. As the industry leader in auto accident litigation funding, Lawsuit Financial has seen first-hand, the devastating results of an accident due to driver fatigue.

A North Carolina man was fatally injured after being struck head-on by a dump truck; he died at the scene. Although the cause of the accident is still under investigation, it appears that a surgical resident crossed into oncoming traffic and hit the truck, causing it to swerve and hit the victim's vehicle. Fatigue appears to have been a factor; the surgical resident had just completed a 12-plus hour shift at the hospital.

The victim's family consulted an experienced auto accident attorney and subsequently filed a lawsuit. As the suit dragged on, they family exhausted their savings. They were facing foreclosure and struggling just to meet monthly expenses. Rather than settling for less than case value, the family applied for litigation funding.

Obtaining litigation funding is a smart strategic move because it removes a victim's pressure to settle too soon for too little, simply to obtain immediate and necessary cash. This cash advance is money against the future settlement to help pay bills - funeral and burial expenses, mortgage payments, car payments, and important expenses until a settlement is reached. Although often referred to as a "lawsuit loan,” there is no application or upfront fees, no monthly payments, no credit checks and no hassles. The only qualification to be eligible is attorney representation and a case with merit. Once a plaintiff is approved for funding, the money arrives fast, typically within 24-48 hours.

If you find yourself in need of financial help as a result of serious injuries or the death of a loved one in an auto accident, consider litigation funding. We accept all the risk, meaning that the lawsuit cash advance does not get repaid if the case does not reach a settlement or other recovery. Call us toll-free at 1-877-443-4711.

Remember - fatigue makes us less alert to what is happening on the road and less able to react quickly and safely if a dangerous situation arises. Eliminating the risk will go a long way to preventing serious and fatal auto accidents.

Lawsuit Funding Available for Pedestrian-Auto Accident Victims in Financial Need

Accidents between autos and pedestrians aren’t as uncommon as you might think. When a pedestrian is struck by several thousand pounds of metal and glass, even a low-speed accident can cause serious or fatal injuries.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2012, 4,743 pedestrians were killed in auto-pedestrian accidents in the United States, and another 76,000 were injured. This means on average there is an auto-related pedestrian death every 2 hours; an injury every 7 minutes.

While a negligent driver are often to blame when a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle, it isn't always the motorists' fault. Pedestrians (including bikers, joggers, skateboarders, etc.) can also cause accidents. Determining fault can sometimes be a complicated process. Did the driver run a red light? Was the driver speeding? Was the driver intoxicated? Did the pedestrian wander out into traffic while texting? Could either person have avoided the accident?

In most states, a pedestrian can only recover in a lawsuit against a driver when the accident was at least partially the driver’s fault. While a lawsuit may be the furthest thing from the victim’s mind in the devastating aftermath, a seeking legal counsel and determining one’s rights is crucial. To prevail in a pedestrian injury claim, the victim needs evidence to prove the motorist violated his duty of care, and that breach was the direct and proximate cause of your injuries. A personal injury attorney can help determine who may be at fault, and decide the best course of action in recovering the maximum compensation for damages. Damages may include, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and the loss of enjoyment of life. In the case of a wrongful death, damages can include funeral and burial expenses. Unfortunately, the legal process can drag on for years as insurance companies are notorious for dragging out a claim until the victim gives in to the lowest possible settlement. In order to wait for a fair settlement, yet avoid experiencing a shortfall in finances that could lead to a significant financial hardship, a plaintiff may benefit from lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is financial assistance in advance of an expected settlement or verdict. This legal finance removes the financial pressure to settle too early for too little compensation, and allows the plaintiff to continue with the litigation and receive the compensation and justice deserved. There are no application fees, credit checks, employment history verifications, or monthly payments. Best of all, repayment is only made when a settlement is reached. If the case is lost, our repayment is lost. Applying for funding takes less than five minutes. Once we received the application and supporting documentation, a funding decision can be made within 24 – 48 hours.

If you were in a pedestrian-auto accident and awaiting justice, don’t let your bills wait and ruin your credit. Call Lawsuit Financial or visit us online for more information or to complete and application.

Litigation Funding Keeps Finances Intact While Victim Fights Her Auto Accident Lawsuit

A solution to coping financially during an auto accident lawsuit is a lawsuit cash advance.

Dear Mr. Bello,

“Thank you once again for helping me in my time of need. My auto accident was difficult enough, but when I learned that I may never walk again it was devastating. It was hard to believe my career as a nurse had most likely come to end. As I tried to cope emotionally and physically, the next shock came; my lawsuit would most likely take at least a year to settle. Talk about feeling totally helpless. I had no idea how I would pay the bills. Your company came to my aid at just the right time. With a lawsuit cash advance, I was able to pay my medical expenses and outstanding monthly bills. I would have lost my home without your help. Thank you again for your assistance.” ~ Michele B, Michigan

Michelle was seriously injured in a two-vehicle auto accident when her 2009 Toyota Camry was rear-ended by the driver of a Ford Explorer.

Lawsuit Funding Can Lend Financial Support in Wrongful Death Lawsuit after Tractor Trailer Accident

Trucking accidents cause thousands of catastrophic and devastating injuries and deaths each year, resulting in lawsuits which can often take an extended time to settle. Suffering the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; the last thing any family needs is to face significant financial hardship, too. We understands how hard it is to stay financial afloat during a lengthy litigation process. If you are in need of a financial lifeline until your case is settled, consider pre-settlement lawsuit funding.

A 25-year-old man was killed and seven others were injured when a tractor-trailer hauling 2 tons of dirt lost control causing a chain reaction accident before jumping the guardrail and flipping over during the morning commuter. Ten vehicles were involved; three were damaged so badly that occupants were trapped inside.

A wrongful death lawsuit was filed against three trucking companies, a construction firm and the truck owner alleging negligent hiring, supervision and training. The suit not only seeks unspecified damages, but also calls for stricter safety regulations in the trucking industry. According to the claim, the truck driver only had three months’ trucking experience when he tried to haul a tractor with two trailers over the mountainous State Route 17 during rush hour traffic hours. The lawsuit also alleges that the trucking companies were not up-to-date on all statutory safety inspections. Witnesses told police that they saw smoke coming from the truck’s brakes. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is still investigating; there has been no definitive answers yet, including whether the accident was the result of a brake failure.

The family is hoping to spearhead changes in the trucking industry so this tragedy does not happen to others. Their attorney said he intends to push for new driver's license "tiers" based on the trucker's experience. Should this go into practice, it could limit inexperienced truckers to specific load weights, or it could prevent them from driving on steep and mountainous highways.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a trucking accident, consult an attorney who specializes in this area of the law to protect your legal rights. If you can't locate an attorney, Lawsuit Financial would be happy to recommend one from our nationwide, attorney referral database.

What if you have mounting medical bills, mortgage payments, household bills, or even worse ─ funeral expenses? The financial strain not only seriously impacts your life, it also impacts your case. Pre-settlement lawsuit funding is financial assistance during the litigation process to help innocent victims pay mounting medical bills or funeral and burial expenses. With this non-recourse cash advance, plaintiffs can take care of their financial obligations while giving their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice.

To determine if you qualify for lawsuit funding, complete an online application or call us toll-free at 1-866-548-3863. We work directly with your attorney to gather necessary information to process your funding request as quickly as possible. Funding is based on the merits of the case, not on credit-worthiness or employment history verification. If approved, cash can often be available in as little as 24 hours.

Furthermore, the victim claims they also failed to respond and provide treatment for malnourishment. The second lawsuit, filed by a former resident of the facility, states that the nursing home failed to take care of her properly, which led to malnutrition, infections, and skin lesions. Both victims claim they now suffer from disfigurements and a host of other medical problems as a result of staff negligence.
