Family of Student Killed in Bus Crash Plans to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Few events in anyone’s life are as catastrophic as finding out that a loved one has been killed due to the negligence and carelessness of another person or entity (company). If someone else's careless or reckless behavior caused your loved one's death, you have the legal right to seek compensation for your loss.

Two Houston Independent School District (ISD) students were killed when the school bus in which they were passengers fell off an overpass onto the road below. One the teens died at the scene; the other teen was pronounced dead at the hospital. Two other students and the bus driver were injured.

Interestingly, it appears the accident was caused by a Houston ISD teacher likely driving to work at the time. Investigations show that the teacher, who was driving a Buick LeSabre, thought that another vehicle was veering into her lane, which led the teacher to swerve and strike the bus. The impact caused the bus to smash through the guardrail, careen off the overpass, and plunge onto the road below. The school bus was making its routine commute to Furr High School at the time of the crash.

The family of the 17-year-old teen who died at the scene plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit against both drivers involved in the accident. The attorney says the family also may sue other parties, including the manufacturer of the guardrail. "We believe the accident was preventable, and we intend to pursue a wrongful death action against both drivers involved, against possibly the manufacturer of the guardrail that didn't work correctly and to investigate HISD's role in all of this -- their hiring practice, training, retention, maintenance of vehicles," said the family’s attorney.

Although the family has the right to file a lawsuit, compensation is not automatic. Cases involving buses and other forms of public transportation can be made difficult by complex laws surrounding government liability. Thus, wrongful death claims can be long and drawn-out, taking months, even years, for a settlement to be reached. The financial roller coaster may be equally as painful as the loss. The family should not be forced to conduct settlement negotiations when they are struggling, financially. If they do, they will, almost always, accept an offer that is less than full case value. A better option is to leverage the expected settlement in the form of litigation funding.

Litigation funding can assist family members through the difficult financial issues facing them by providing short-term cash to pay medical expenses, funeral or burial expenses, or to handle monthly bills such as mortgage payments, car payments and household expenses.
The application process is quick and easy; the approval process is less than 48 hours after receiving case documentation. There are no upfront fees, monthly payments, credit checks or employment verifications. Repayment is only made if and/or when the lawsuit is won or settled. Litigation funding is also risk-free. If the family loses the case, the cash advance is completely waived.

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a bus accident, it is important to contact an attorney to help recover compensation for your loss. If you are struggling financially while awaiting a settlement contact Lawsuit Financial to discuss your short-term financial needs. We try to buy you precious time to develop your case, your damages, and allow your attorney the time he needs to get the job done.

Litigation Funding Prevents Victims from Falling Behind on Bills

When you walk into a retail store, you should not have to worry about merchandise falling on your head.

A 58-year-old Michigan woman was recently awarded a $4.6 million settlement resulting from an August 2012 accident at a CVS.

The woman asked an assistant manager for the price of a chair she could not reach because it was on a shelf six feet off the ground. While the employee reached for the chair, the woman leaned over to look at other chairs on a lower shelf. Suddenly, a few of the chairs from above, and the metal bins they were contained, came tumbling down. One of the chairs struck the woman in the head and hand. She sustained a serious traumatic brain injury which has left her with serious cognitive limitations and disabling headaches, and unable to return to her job as a senior building analyst.

CVS refused to take responsibility and denied fault throughout the case, alleging that the chairs did not fall on the woman but “leaned on her head,” according to the woman’s attorney. CVS also claimed there was no security footage of the incident, despite the presence of six surveillance cameras throughout the store. Fortunately, the jury saw the truth and award in favor of the plaintiff.

Despite the award, the couple may not receive compensation for some time; CVS is considering options for filing post-trial motions and an appeal. During this time, expenses will keep coming and while this woman waits for her case to go through the appeal process, bills and expenses will still need to be paid. Unable to work, how can she withstand financial hardship that will come with further delays? The answer: litigation funding.

Applying for litigation funding takes less than five minutes. Once supported with adequate documentation, the case is review and if approved, funds can be available in as little as 24 hours. A lawsuit cash advance from Lawsuit Financial is based solely on the merits of the case. No matter how long it takes to receive a settlement, repayment is deferred until resolution. If the woman loses the appeal, the cash advance would be completely waived.

If you are in a pending lawsuit or facing an appeal process and can’t afford to wait for a settlement, Lawsuit Financial may be able to offer you a lawsuit cash advance.

Driver Alleges He Doesn’t Remember Hitting Jogger

An auto accident can have devastating effects on a victim's life, both physically and emotionally, but it can also cause financial challenges, especially in the immediate aftermath of the accident. Provided that the circumstances of an accident show that someone else was responsible for the injuries, the victim can seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Once a lawsuit is filed, the plaintiff can also seek lawsuit funding.

The driver who left a jogger for dead has turned himself in through his attorney after negotiating with authorities. The hit-and-run accident happened on September 29 in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. The bleeding woman was rushed to the hospital in serious condition after a girl, on her way to school, found the woman lying in a ditch. Investigators believe the jogger was on the sidewalk when she was hit because they found tire marks where the driver jumped the curb; there were no signs of braking. She continues to recover in the hospital after suffering a crushed pelvis, a severed artery in the leg, a tear in her aorta and trauma to her neck. The woman was training for Denver's Rock 'n' Roll marathon.

According to court documents, the man told deputies he was driving along when something jarred him awake. He claims that he got out of his car, saw damage to the vehicle, but nothing else. It was after his wife showed him news reports that he revisited the site, then contacted an attorney and confessed. The man also told officials that he smokes hash and concentrate marijuana every other day, usually at night to sleep, but said he was not smoking before the crash. He faces several charges including careless driving, failing to remain on scene after an accident involving serious bodily injury, failing to notify police of an accident and tampering with physical evidence.

When someone is seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, the first days, weeks, even months are spent getting necessary medical treatment and dealing with the injuries, pain and suffering, lost work, and disruption to normal life. But, victims also need to protect their rights and should consult an experienced personal injury attorney. Unfortunately, personal injury claims can take months, even years to settle. Meanwhile, bills can pile up forcing plaintiffs to settle their claim for significantly less than full case value. In such times, lawsuit funding can be a helpful and useful financial tool.

Lawsuit funding is a resource that provides a plaintiff with emergency cash until a settlement is reached. The benefit is that it provides liquidity to the plaintiff with no upfront fees, no credit checks, no monthly payments, and no restrictions on how the money can be used. Once we receive an application and case documentation, a funding decision can be determined within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment of the cash advance is not required until the case concludes successfully. If the case fails, the plaintiff keeps the money, free of charge.

Lawsuit funding is not for everyone, but if you are in need a financial assistance during a pending claim, it is important to choose an experienced lawsuit funding company to guide you appropriately. Lawsuit Financial has been a leader in the legal finance industry for over 15 years, and we are one of a few companies where funding comes from our own resources. We never broker out, which means optimal privacy and confidentiality to you. Call us today to discuss funding options available for your case.

A Survival Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Driver and Trucking Company

A financially desperate plaintiff is not in a favorable position regarding settlement negotiations; this person will often settle for too little, too soon. Lawsuit funding can help plaintiffs take care of their financial obligations while giving their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice.

A Texas family has filed a survival action lawsuit alleging wrongful death and negligence in a fatal May 2014 auto accident. The suit claims that the driver of a tractor trailer was negligent when he slammed into a Dodge pick-up truck as it was existing a parking lot. The driver of the pick-up truck was unresponsive at the scene and subsequently died from his injuries.
The plaintiffs allege that the driver failed to:

• keep proper lookout;
• maintain a safe speed;
• keep safe distance;
• turn, brake, or stop in order to avoid a collision;
• keep the rig in a good working condition.

The lawsuit also cites his company for failing to inspect as well as maintain the truck, and failing to abide by the safety and traffic regulations.

According to the claim, the driver of the pick-up truck was non-responsive at the accident scene; his injuries subsequently took his life. The lawsuit also states that the plaintiffs have incurred substantial medical costs and funeral costs, as well as loss of enjoyments of life, and loss of wages and earning capacity.

Trucking accidents cause thousands of devastating injuries and deaths each year, resulting in lawsuits which can often take an extended time to settle. These cases can also put undue financial pressure on the family as they try to piece their lives back together. Lawsuit funding has helped plaintiffs pay immediate expenses – medical bills, funeral expenses, mortgage or rent payments, credit card debt, but also gives them time to obtain full value for their pain, suffering, and loss. To qualify, a plaintiff needs attorney representation and a case with merit; that’s all – no credit checks, employment verification or collateral is necessary. Once an application is approved, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. No payments are made until the case settles. If, for some reason the case is unsuccessful, the repayment is completely waived.

Do not resolve your case for less than full value because of pressing financial need. If you are in a position that you need cash now, contact Lawsuit Financial for a free evaluation of your funding situation.

A Look At Financial Resources To Help Plaintiffs In Need

Every plaintiff goes into a lawsuit expecting a fair settlement. However, fighting a case can be a long and complicated battle. During this time, a plaintiff’s financial responsibilities don’t stop until a time that is financially convenient.

Financial responsibilities can often lead a plaintiff to settle too soon, for too little. While there are many places that a plaintiff can turn, most will not fit his/her needs.

Credit cards. While credit cards may seem like a quick fix – just pull one out of your wallet and charge your payment – there are still monthly payments and accumulated interest. The longer it takes to pay off a credit card, the more the interest and fees add up. By the time a settlement is reached, much, if not all, will go to paying the credit card company. Furthermore, the debt must be paid even if the case is lost.

Bank loan. Plaintiffs often look to the bank for a traditional loan, but most banks will not provide a loan against a lawsuit. The application process is also time consuming, requiring a credit and employment check which creates problems for plaintiffs who are often out of work. Even if the plaintiff is approved, s/he would have yet another monthly payments. Again, despite the results, the plaintiff must repay the bank loan.

Family and Friends. Borrowing from family or friends may initially seem like a good option, but often times it results in conflict. Most lawsuits can last for years, putting a strain on the relationship.

Some plaintiffs may decide to do nothing, letting the bills pile up until the case settles. This can lead to foreclosure, eviction, car repossession, and affect a person’s credit score. Plaintiffs who fall into this trap are not considering how debt can affect them for years to come.

A better option to stay out of the red and wait for fair compensation is litigation funding. A legal finance company understands the financial situation facing plaintiffs so the application process is quick and easy, and it can be done online. Approval is based on case merit, not financial history or current status. When cases are reviewed and approved, it is with the plaintiff’s specific needs in mind. Furthermore, there are no monthly payments; repayment is made once the case settles. If the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived.

To benefit the most from litigation funding, here are a few important tips for plaintiffs:

Do the research. Look for an experienced funding company with a good reputation. The right company can help plaintiffs understand lawsuit cash advances and help determine the best funding solution.

Be an informed plaintiff. When choosing a lawsuit funding company, be sure you understand all your options and ask questions throughout the process. A quality funding company will not only thoroughly explain the funding process and provide a clear written agreement, but will encourage you to review the contract with his/her attorney before signing.

The costs of lawsuit funding vary.
It is important to compare not only the rates, but terms and conditions. The lowest rate may not always be the best deal.

Use the lawsuit cash advance prudently. Despite what some funding companies may tell you, a lawsuit cash advance is expensive. Only borrow the amount that is absolutely necessary and use the money prudently – for paying necessary expenses such as the mortgage, utility bills, medical expenses, etc.

Investigators Report Nine Prior Safety Violations by Subcontractor of Vikings Stadium Fatality

Although an investigation is ongoing at the new stadium site for the Minnesota Vikings’ where one construction worker lost his life, and injured another, records showed that the subcontractor involved had received nine citations for serious safety violations at its worksites in the past five years, including failure to use safety harnesses on elevated worksites.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) said the two workers were installing a solid roof when they fell and slid down the roof. One of the workers struck a post and was stopped, but injured. The other broke through a guard rail and fell 50 feet onto an elevated platform below. He died from his injuries. Both men w for were employed by the subcontractor, Berwald Roofing and Sheet Metal Company.

Investigators are still determining whether the men were wearing harnesses or other safety gear at the time. An owner of Berwald, said “the company stresses safety, but can't always control its workers' actions, including failing to hook up their harnesses.” It is currently unknown whether the victim was wearing a safety lanyard. Berwald has a $3.4 million contract to work on the stadium. Mortenson Construction, the general contractor is overseeing the $1 billion-plus project that consist of approximately 1,200 workers.

Based on their history of safety violations, it appears that Berwald was putting corporate profits over the safety of its employees. Was the company rushing to meet deadlines without concern for its employees? Did they have proper training procedures in place? What about Mortenson who should be overseeing the project? While waiting for the investigation to conclude, victims may file a lawsuit against the general contractor, sub-contractor, or others involved. Once a lawsuit is filed, if the plaintiffs have no life insurance, savings, or other funding sources, until the case settles, they may be interested in applying for a lawsuit cash advance.

Even if injuries occurred on the job, workers compensation may not be enough to cover all expenses and injury-related damages. Medical and funeral expenses can put a family in financial distress. Lawsuit funding is a means to assist plaintiffs with pressing bills, as well as day-to-day living expenses so they can wait for a fair settlement or a jury verdict. The first step is to complete a one-page funding application. A representative will evaluate the prospects for case success and potential case value, then determine an amount that comfortably fits within that value. Upon acceptance of a funding contract, we will direct deposit the funds or send overnight mail. Lawsuit funding requires no credit checks, no employment verification, and no monthly payments. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles, but if the case is lost, our repayment is lost, as well.

Lawsuit Financial has more combined legal and lawsuit finance experience than any company in this industry. We have underwritten thousands of these transactions and represented thousands more.

Family Receives Undisclosed Settlement In Wrongful Death Lawsuit, But Will Their Case Bring Awareness?

There are two main reasons people file lawsuits - to be compensated for damages resulting from the negligence of someone else and to bring awareness to prevent the negligence from happening to others. During a lengthy wrongful death lawsuit, family members can become financially drained. To avoid this from happening, plaintiffs can sustain themselves with the aid of lawsuit funding.

On January 31, 2015, an Ontario family of five was headed for a vacation in Ohio, ready to make some happy memories together. What they got was their biggest nightmare.
This blended family of five was traveling through the Detroit area when heavy snow squalls and white out conditions blanketed the interstate, resulting in nearly a dozen separate accidents. The series of crashes involved a transport truck that slammed into the passenger side of the family’s Mazda sedan. Two children, Aidan 7 and Gabrielle 10 died at the scene. A sibling and their parents survived with injuries; Aidan’s mother suffered brain damage that will affect her the rest of her life. After crashing into the Mazda, the driver of the tractor-trailer collided with another vehicle, killing its 54-year-old driver.

Although dozens of accidents occurred quickly that day, why were other vehicles able to stop with no serious injuries or fatalities? Seeking answers, the same answers any of us would want, the family filed a wrongful death lawsuit. After an independent investigation, it was determined that weather was not a factor and the truck and trailer should not have been on the road.

Results of the investigation showed that there were significant problems with the aging trucks’ braking system. At least half of the transport truck’s braking systems weren’t working and of its eight axles, four had inoperable braking mechanisms. Two of the remaining axles had brakes that were “out of adjustment.” In addition, the driver had a poor driving record including three infractions for speeding and two others for following too closely.

This family will never see Aidan and Gabrielle grow up and get married, but after two years the legal battle has ended with an undisclosed settlement. Not being able to release details about the settlement can be problematic, according to the family’s attorney, who says these types of cases should be viewed as a deterrent. “It’s personally frustrating whenever you’re not given the opportunity to let the public know what occurred,” he said.

Losing loved ones unexpectedly can be extremely difficult and painful. Resolving a claim can be exhausting; reaching a settlement is only half the battle. Waiting for a fair settlement can be financially devastating. To avoid this additional pain and suffering, a plaintiff can seek monetary support through the legal funding services offered by Lawsuit Financial.

While we cannot bring back your loved ones, we may be able to help avoid financial difficulties until your case settle. Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance which helps supplement finances so plaintiffs can pay outstanding bills and prevent a bad credit history while waiting for justice and a fair settlement. Applying for a lawsuit cash advance is absolutely free!

Furthermore, there are no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. Once Lawsuit Financial receives an application, we begin the review process by obtaining case documentation from your attorney. If your application is approved, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Another great feature of lawsuit funding is that you are only required to repay the cash advance when you successfully settle your case. However, if you lose, you owes us nothing.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, and are seeking lawsuit funding, contact Lawsuit Financial to understand how we may be able to help you and your case.

Lawsuit Financial: Your Financial Partner Through A Personal Injury Lawsuit

Jacob was stopped for traffic when a truck approached, and without braking rear-ended Jacob’s vehicle. His car was sent careening down an embankment, flipping several times before coming to a stop. Jacob spent several months in the hospital and underwent three surgeries. He filed a lawsuit against the truck driver and the trucking company, but the case was dragging on. The defendant made a settlement offer, but Jacob’s attorney felt it was significantly less than the case was worth. Being unable to work and faced with a mortgage and mounting medical expenses, Jacob turned to Lawsuit Financial.

When A Medical Provider Puts Profits Over Care, Lawsuit Financial Provides Cash For Justice

Every day, millions of people seek medical assistance whether in a clinic, doctor’s office, emergency room or other healthcare facility. Patients expect the best possible care. When that standard care is not met, serious or fatal consequences can occur.

On December 26, 2013, a thirty-two-year-old man went to a Houston clinic suffering from a fever. He was given antibiotics and sent home. Later that day, his conditioned worsened and he was transported by ambulance to an area hospital. Forty-five minutes after arrival, treatment began. Why the delay?

According to a recent wrongful death lawsuit, the hospital staff was more concerned with how the bills would be paid. The lawsuit claims that the delay cost the man his life. A medical examiner confirmed that the cause of death was anaphylactic shock.

Medical malpractice is something no one should ever have to endure. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical negligence, you should consult an experience attorney to understand your legal options and fight for the justice you deserve.

Given the nature of this wrongful death lawsuit, it may be a long time before the case goes to court and/or culminates in a settlement or award.

Family of Hit-and-Run Victim Settle Out of Court for $4. 3 Million

Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits are usually harshly contested by an insurance company or a corporate defendant. However, even considering this sobering fact, damage recovery does not always require a victim to go to trial and receive a jury verdict. Even after suit is filed, most cases are still settled without a trial. Why? There is no one answer, but the biggest one is that a settlement reduces litigation costs and eliminates the uncertainty of a trial. No one, not even the most experienced attorneys, can accurately predict what a judge or jury will do with a particular case.

A $4.3 million settlement was reached in the wrongful-death lawsuit of a pedestrian who was stuck by a hit-and-run driver, then hit again by a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus in 2009. The driver of the car was never caught. The 36-year-old deceased woman leaves behind a husband and two children.

CTA officials said the settlement was negotiated in part to avoid a possibly higher judgment against the transit agency if the case proceeded to court. After the accident, improvements were made at the intersection, which include repainting of crosswalks, adding yield-to pedestrian signs, and adding a four-second delay in traffic lights to allow pedestrians to cross.

This case is a perfect example that despite whether a settlement was reached in or out of court, it can take years for the plaintiff to receive compensation for damages. In the meanwhile, the plaintiff must pay the medical bills and/or funeral expenses associated with the accident, as well as other expenses such as the mortgage, child care, and daily household needs. Cases such as this are eligible for lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance on the expected proceeds of the case that removes financial stress and allows time to wait for a fair and equitable settlement. Approvals take as little as 24 hours; the application process is easy and free, and you pay nothing unless and until you resolve your case.

Lawsuit Funding Helps Plaintiffs Supplement An Income And Pay Monthly Expenses

A Mercedes SUV rear-ended a Nissan Maxima on the Florida Turnpike in Lake County, causing a crash that killed three people, including an infant. Both vehicles flipped on their sides and caught fire. A male driver and female passenger in the Nissan died at the scene. The infant was ejected from the vehicle; she died at an area hospital. Damage to the Nissan was so extensive that police were unable to identify the victims, determine the age of the infant, or if a car seat was in the vehicle. Police have traced the vehicle identification number (VIN) to an owner in Georgia, but it is unclear if the owner was in the vehicle at the time of the crash. The 24-year-old driver of the SUV escaped with minor injuries.

At this time, it is unclear if the driver of the Mercedes was speeding, texting, driving under the influence, or negligent in another way. What police do know is that the man was driving on a suspended license. Also, a few months earlier was charged with possession of methamphetamine and resisting an officer without violence. In the past two years, he faced multiple charges for speeding and a charge for texting while driving.

When negligence is proven to be a factor in a deadly auto crash, an experienced auto accident attorney can help the family understand their rights and pursue a wrongful death claim. In addition to receiving compensation for funeral and burial expenses and other accident-related expenses, the family may also pursue compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of companionship.

Unfortunately, most legal matters are not quickly resolved; it is not any different when it comes to auto accident cases. This is where lawsuit funding may be helpful.

Lawsuit funding allows plaintiffs easy access to the funds they will received once a settlement is reached. Although the money can be used any way the client wishes, most often it is to pay funeral and burial expenses and other outstanding bills, as well as daily household expenses.

Our auto accident lawsuit funding program requires no credit checks or employment verification, as the entire cash advance is based on the strength of the case. Additionally, funding is on a non-recourse basis meaning that the plaintiff will only have to pay back the cash advance if compensation from the claim is received. That’s correct! We are paid back from the proceeds of the case, but if the case is lost the repayment to us is completely waived.

If you find yourself in a pending lawsuit and facing financial difficulties, consider lawsuit funding to help pay outstanding bills so you can focus on what is really important – winning your case. Call Lawsuit Financial today or complete our online contact form to receive a funding consultation and evaluation of your case.
