Lawsuit Funding Is A Solution To The Damaging Financial Effects of Personal Injury

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance for plaintiffs in a pending lawsuit who sustained physical and emotional damages as a result of someone else’s negligence. When it is impossible for them to return to work, a financial burden is added to the mix. As they struggle with medical expenses and regular household bills, plaintiffs will often times start to consider the insurance company’s low-ball offer; an offer less than full-case value. A more practical option would be to obtain a lawsuit cash advance known as lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is quicker and easier than most types of loans. The only qualifying requirements are a pending personal injury lawsuit caused by the negligence of someone else, attorney representation, and a strong case with merit. Plaintiffs don’t need to be employed or have great credit; assets do not matter either. Because funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, Lawsuit Financial accepts all the risk. If your case does not settle in your favor, you are not obligated to pay us back. You are only obligated to repay the lawsuit advance if you win your case; repayment is made from the case proceeds.

When strains of a legal battle cause both emotionally and financially strain, consider lawsuit funding. The experienced, professional staff at Lawsuit Financial understands your situation and we will do our best to get you the financial assistance you need within 48 hours.

Lawsuit Funding For Wrongful Death Due to Medical Misdiagnosis

Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose are two of the most common issues in medical malpractice. If you have lost a loved one due to a medical professional’s misdiagnosis, you can file a lawsuit for their negligence. But, waiting for a settlement can take months or years. During this time, you may run out of cash, but that doesn’t mean the bills stop coming in. A plaintiff who simply cannot endure a long litigation process can seek lawsuit funding.

A Ford County jury recently handed down a $950,000 verdict, the largest civil judgment in a medical malpractice case in the county’s 156-year history. Damages included $400,000 for pecuniary losses, $250,000 for pain and suffering, $200,000 for emotional distress and $100,000 for disability. The wrongful death lawsuit, filed in August 2011, alleged that the 73-year-old man died at Gibson City hospital following the misdiagnosis of his medical condition. On October 6, 2008, he went to the ER complaining of chest pain. Tests performed indicated his pain was a result of a peptic ulcer. While in the hospital, cardiac enzymes were drawn only once. The man was sent home and told to follow up with his primary-care physician, which he did the next day — and again two days later. On October 9, he was re-admitted to the ER and subjected to further testing. Despite fluctuations in his heart rate and pulse, the doctor failed to evaluate the patient for cardiac ischemia. Once again, he was discharged again and told to follow up with his primary-care physician. A day later, he was back at the ER with chest pains. This time he was transferred to a medical/surgical unit. According to the lawsuit, while there, his heart rate and pulse were not monitored. At trial, it was revealed that his heart had stopped beating 47 minutes before a “code blue” was called. The man died on October 12. An autopsy showed no ulcer and that the cause of death was actually “hem pericardium with a transmural rupture of the left ventricle.” According to the lawsuit, if the man had been accurately and timely diagnosed, the blockage in his left anterior descending coronary artery could have been repaired with a stent or coronary artery bypass grafting.

Nothing can ever replace the loss of a loved one, but Lawsuit Financial is happy that the wife of the deceased was able to seek justice. While we don’t know her financial situation, this case would have been eligible for lawsuit funding. A lawsuit cash advance would have ensured that her expenses were covered until the case reached a settlement. This type of financing is not provided against assets; rather it is against the potential settlement of the case. That means there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. The cash advance is simply repaid once the case successfully settles. Had this plaintiff applied for, and received, lawsuit funding from Lawsuit Financial and lost her case, we would not require repayment of the cash advance. That is because we assume all the risks when funding clients.

If you have lost a loved one due to a misdiagnosis, you may be entitled to a monetary recovery by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Once you have legal representation, if you are considering lawsuit funding, contact Lawsuit Financial or complete our online contact form. You could receive financial assistance within 24 – 48 hours.

Deadly Snoqualmie Pass Crash May Be Result of Impaired Semi-Truck Driver

The Washington State Patrol reported that two people were killed and five other injured in a serious crash involving eight vehicles that closed westbound Interstate 90 near Snoqualmie Pass for several hours. At least two semi-trucks were involved; one of the semi-rigs was an empty commercial car hauler.

Troopers believe the driver of the car carrier was traveling west and lost control before veering across all lanes of traffic and coming to rest in the roadway. This caused a chain-reaction crash that completely blocked all westbound lanes of the freeway. Witnesses told police the driver of the car hauler has been driving way too fast.

Although an investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing, the driver of one of the car hauler was arrested for vehicular homicide after being interviewed by a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE). The fact that the arrest followed an interview with a DRE strongly suggests that the truck driver is suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the crash. This is a significant development for many reasons, but primarily because it would likely place the truck driver at-fault for the fatalities and serious injuries resulting from the accident.
Accidents involving trucks are some of the worst in the U.S., but it often takes a long time for an investigation to establish who or what was to blame. While the investigation continues in order to determine liability, the insurance companies have already begun working to defend or completely deny their responsibility for the damages that have resulted from the accident.

Lawsuit Financial urges the victims to consult an experience attorney immediately. Waiting can only reduce the chances of a successful outcome. Lawsuit Financial works with top attorneys nationwide and would be happy to help these victims locate an experienced attorney in their area.

Once a lawyer is retained and a lawsuit filed, litigation funding can be arranged to help victims and their family members cope with financial hardship until they receive their settlement. This type of cash advance does not need to be paid back until the case is settled. If the case is lose, the repayment is waived. There are no credit checks, no employment verification, and no restrictions on the use of the money whatsoever.

If you, or a loved one, are in need of litigation funding due to an auto accident, apply online or by calling our office toll-free at 1-877-377-7848. Often times, we can review and approve a case for funding within 24 – 48 hours.

Lawsuit Funding Strengthens Auto Accident Lawsuits

When an innocent victim has been injured in an auto accident due to the negligence of someone else, he/she should be fairly compensated, including medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and any other related costs. Unfortunately, lawsuits take months, even years to settle and most plaintiffs are not in a financial position to withstand a long litigation process. To a desperate plaintiff, any offer from the insurance company can be enticing, but a better solution might be lawsuit funding.

A client was in a head-on collision after a speeding driver lost control and slammed into his vehicle. He suffered permanent brain damage, fractured ribs, and a punctured lung. Our client filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver, but his attorney said it would be at least a year before the case would settle. He was unable to return to work; his wife’s part-time job was not enough to support a family of four. When the insurance company offered $700,000 to settle, the offer was enticing to this cash-strapped victim, but our client's attorney informed him that accepting the offer was a bad idea. While it may cover current expenses, it would not be enough to cover future medical expenses, nor would it be enough to replace lost income. The attorney instead recommended lawsuit funding. Within 2 days, a lawsuit cash advance from Lawsuit Financial gave our client financial stability to wait out the next ten months until his case settled for $1.5 million.

Lawsuit Financial provides lawsuit funding to injured and disabled litigants involved in pending litigation because of their injuries and/or disabilities. We understand the importance of quickly meeting a client’s financial needs which is why we offer a quick and easy application process. The only requirement is that a client has a serious injury, attorney representation, and a strong case. We do not care about a credit check, employment history or collateral. Most funding decisions are made within 24 - 48 hours of receiving the documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. Best of all, the cash advance is on a non-recourse basis meaning that repayment is only made if, and when, the case successful settles. If our client loses the case, the cash advance is waived in its entirety.

If you are involved in a lawsuit and the litigation process is extended far beyond your financial resources, don't settle for less just because you are in desperate need of money. Lawsuit Financial has money available today, so you avoid a financial disaster such as foreclosure, eviction, bankruptcy, and ruined credit. To learn how lawsuit funding can help strengthen your case and achieve maximum settlement value, call us toll-free at 877-377-7848 or complete our online funding application.

Lawsuit Funding Pays For Life Necessities While You Wait For Your Medical Malpractice Lawsuit To Settle

Medical malpractice comes in many forms ̶ delayed or failure to diagnose, an improper procedure, contaminated equipment, surgical tools left behind, incorrect medications or dosage and mistakes made with anesthesia, to name a few. Sadly, many hospitals, doctors, and other medical professionals refuse to admit liability. If the negligence of medical staff or hospital can be proved, the injured person may be entitled to monetary compensation from the negligent party. Unfortunately, this often results in a lengthy legal battle. With limited cash flow it’s difficult to pay bills and keep up with living expenses. Lawsuit funding not only helps victims pay bills, it has the added benefit of keeping a case strong by removing the temptation to take an early, low settlement.

It wasn’t until a full year later, that the woman was informed by doctors that the employee had used a pen to administer her insulin with one that had been previously used on a patient who was positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B and C, the lawsuit states. The defendant is accused of failing follow medical procedures, resulting in alleged unnecessary pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of a normal life.

Do You Quality For Lawsuit Funding?

After hiring an attorney and filing a personal injury lawsuit, many people soon realize that their finances are in jeopardy because of medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, or a host of other bills that must be paid. When there are no savings or family to help, plaintiffs will often go further in debt or settle for less than fair compensation. That is because most people are not familiar with lawsuit funding.

A lawsuit cash advance “buys” time by providing emergency cash when it is needed most; it levels the playing field to wait for the settlement you deserve. The major difference between lawsuit funding and a traditional bank loan is that you do not have to repay the cash advance if you do not win your case.

There are a few minimum requirements to qualify for lawsuit funding.

1. You must have suffered a personal injury or lost a loved one in a wrongful death due to the negligence of someone else.

2. You must have retained an attorney on a contingency-fee agreement. That means your attorney agrees to work for you and agrees to get paid out of the proceeds of your case.

3. There is case documentation of the incident and injuries incurred (accident report and medical reports).

4. The defendant must be able to pay any claim awarded to you.

5. Your attorney must consent to the lawsuit funding transaction and agree to reimburse Lawsuit Financial from the proceeds of the settlement.

Once you meet these qualifications, applying for lawsuit funding and receiving the cash advance is a quick and easy process. Simply complete our one-page online application or call us toll free number at 877-377-7848. Then, we will contact your attorney for necessary case documentation. The review and approval process can take less than a day depending upon how quickly we receive documents from your attorney. We fund purely on the merits of the case. If approved, we will provide a contract to be signed by you and your attorney. When the contract is fully executed, funds can typically be wired into your bank account the same day.

If you are searching for lawsuit funding because you are having financial difficulties, contact Lawsuit Financial. We fund almost all types of personal injury cases including slip/trip and falls, automobile accidents, and work-related accidents. Our experience staff will do everything possible to provide a financial barrier between full compensation and a premature settlement.

Man Killed In Single Vehicle Crash Allegedly Watching Porn

If you read my blogs on a regular basis, you know that I continuously remind readers about the dangers of distracted driving. Usually, these distractions happen in the form of cell phone use or texting while driving. Yesterday, I read an article that goes far beyond any case of distracted driving that I have ever blogged about.

A 58-year-old man was driving his 1996 Toyota on Interstate 75 near Detroit around 3:30 a.m. when he lost control of his vehicle causing the car to roll over. He was partially ejected through the sunroof and thrown from the vehicle. Police said the man was not wearing a seat belt, which is why he was ejected. Although an investigation is ongoing into this single vehicle accident, police said there is a reasonable assumption as to what led to the crash. While driving, the man was simultaneously watching a porn film on his smartphone. Police also believe he was masturbating at the same time; when found at the crash site he was not wearing pants.

Not only is this one of the most bizarre forms of distracted driving, it just goes to show that there are far more possible distractions than anyone could ever imagine. How many more accidents must happen before people get the message? Once you are the fatality, it’s too late!

If you were seriously injured or lost a loved one due to a distracted driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses. It is important to contact an attorney that specializes in auto accident lawsuits. If you don't know or can't locate an attorney in your area, Lawsuit Financial will be happy to provide a free referral, anywhere in the U.S.

What if you are injured or disabled? What if the medical expenses and household bills are piling up, or even worse ─ funeral expenses? What if you lost the sole breadwinner? Coupled with a lengthy litigation process and you may be facing financial devastation. No one wants to rack up more debt with credit cards or a second mortgage on your home. Fortunately, there is a risk-free option with Lawsuit Financial.

Lawsuit Financial provides lawsuit funding to help cover bills while your case is being prepared for trial and settled. A lawsuit cash advance provides a strategic advantage for the victim because it gives them leverage against the insurance company; it prevents them from being forced to take inadequate offers from greedy carriers. When the financial pressure is removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full value of your injuries.

The application process is quick and easy, often times with funding decisions within 24 – 48 hours. There are no application fees, no credit check, no job requirement and no monthly payments. And, if the plaintiff loses the case, there is no obligation to repay the cash advance.

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, let our pro-justice legal finance company help you with immediate bills so your attorney has the time necessary to achieve the results you deserve. Call Lawsuit Financial at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) for a free no-obligation consultation.

Pedestrian Struck and Killed By Drunk Driver in Lincoln, New Hampshire

Drunk driving accidents continue to be an epidemic in the U.S. and account for many fatal accidents every year. Nothing can be more devastating than to lose a loved one especially due to a senseless and entirely preventable act.

Last night, a man was walking on Main Street in Lincoln New Hampshire when he was struck by a drunk driver. He died at the hospital as a result of his injuries. The drunk driver remained at the scene. He was arrested and charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated.
Aside from criminal charges, the family of the deceased victim should consult an experienced auto accident attorney. Although no amount of money can bring back a lost loved one, it can protect the financial future of survivors and give them some sense of justice.

Lawsuit Alleges Child Injured After Ice Rink Staff Denies “Safety Penguin”

When it comes to skating, inherent dangers include the risk of falling, the risk of colliding with another skater, and the risk of skating into a wall or other structure in the facility. So, typically someone injured can’t file a lawsuit against a rink operator if an injury occurred as a result of a reasonably expected aspect of the skating experience. On the other hand, skaters and other patrons injured may be able to file a lawsuit and seek compensation for injuries sustained, if it can be proven that the owner or operator of the rink failed to abide by its requirements under state law. Depending upon the unique circumstances of your case, it may not matter whether the injury was partially caused by the inherent risks of skating. Because such premise liability cases often involve complicated legal issues, it is best to consult an experience attorney to determine your rights. When significant financial damages are incurred, such as extensive medical expenses or lost wages, lawsuit funding may help plaintiffs until the case settles.

A mother took her 5-year-old daughter to Bryant Park for a fun day of ice skating at the park’s Winter Village. The woman said she repeatedly requested a “safety penguin” to help her child skate, but was refused by rink staffers who said the penguins were only for children four and younger. A “penguin” is a plastic balancing aid that kids can hold in order to stay upright. The woman has since filed a lawsuit alleging that her daughter was seriously injured in a fall due to staff negligence. The complaint alleges that staffers didn’t understand their own rules and that the criteria for getting a penguin was a kid’s height, not age. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Due to the complexity of such cases, this lawsuit may take years to settle. A lawsuit cash advance may be able to provide the financial security of paying bills while waiting for a fair and full settlement. At Lawsuit Financial, we provide non-recourse cash advances to plaintiffs in pending lawsuits. We feature an easy online application process, quick approval time, professional customer service, and affordable rates. Don’t worry about a bad credit history or unemployment; with us, those don’t matter. There are no application fees or monthly payments, either. Best of all, with Lawsuit Financial you only repay the cash advance if you win your case. Contact us to learn if your lawsuit qualifies for lawsuit funding.

Elderly Woman Dies After Being Left Alone For Nearly Eight Hours In A Dialysis Center

A 71-year-old woman was scheduled to be transported to a local hospital after her dialysis treatment at DaVita Renal Center West in Joliet, Illinois, but the Kurtz ambulance service never arrived. It wasn’t until police received a call from her daughter that the elderly woman was found sitting in her wheelchair inside the empty, closed dialysis facility. It was shortly after midnight; she may have been left at the facility for as long as eight hours. The woman was taken to the hospital where she died the next day. Kurtz says they were never scheduled to pick up the woman after her treatment. The dialysis center says it is the patient’s responsibility to schedule a ride.

Despite the cause of death, the complete failure to ensure this elderly woman was properly transported back to the hospital is a complete disregard for her life. How could not one person observe the woman sitting in the lobby as they left the building? How could employees turn off the lights and lock the doors without checking that everyone was gone? Although the coroner said the women died of natural causes, the case is still under investigation to determine if negligence was a factor. Had she not been abandon for eight hours, by those she had entrusted her care, she may be alive today.

When you place your elderly loved one in the care of a medical facility, you expect them to be well-cared for and safe. Unfortunately, negligence is all too common resulting in serious injuries or death. A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for one’s loss. It may also be a means to improve safety and quality of care.

If you or a loved one suffered physical or emotional injuries because a medical facility was negligent or failed to fulfill its care obligations to you or a loved one, you may have grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Contact an experience attorney as soon as possible.

Once a lawsuit is filed, Lawsuit Financial can assist victims and family members through the difficult financial issues facing them by providing a lawsuit cash advance known as lawsuit funding. Funding can be used for medical, emotional or financial needs; there are no restrictions on how the money is used. We offer a quick and easy approval process – typically in under 48 hours. There are no upfront fees, monthly payments, credit checks or employment verifications. Because funding is provided on a non-recourse cash advance, if you lose your case you owe nothing. It really is a risk-free “lawsuit loan” option for plaintiffs. Visit us online or call us toll free at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) to discuss your financial needs; we also offer a no-obligation lawsuit funding consultation.
