Lawsuit Funding: A Smart Solution To Paying Bills Until A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Settlement Is Reached

Last November, a 10-passenger plane was approaching Akron Fulton International Airport when it crashed roughly two miles from the runway. The plane clipped power lines before it went through an apartment building and burst into flames. All nine people on board, two pilots and seven passengers from a Florida-based real estate company were killed. There was no one inside the four-unit apartment building at the time. No one on the ground was injured.

After a yearlong investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has determined that pilot error caused the fiery crash, among a litany of other wrongdoings. Despite both pilots completing a flight training program, NTSB investigators found “the crew’s action during the flight revealed ineffective coordination and inefficient responsibilities, failure to make checklists, failure to call out and poor pilot briefing. Blame was also affixed on the aviation company for inadequate hiring, pilot training and aircraft maintenance, as well as having a “casual attitude toward compliance.” The board also placed blame on the Federal Aviation Administration for failing to provide proper oversight of the company regarding compliance with regulations.

Prior to the recent report by the NTSB, several families filed wrongful death lawsuits against the estate of both pilots, as well as the owner and operator of the plane. The lawsuits allege that negligence led to the crash and ultimate death of their loved ones. The complaints contend that the pilots “operated the plane at a dangerously low altitude, failed to listen to warnings about weather conditions on the ground and didn’t chose an alternative landing site.” They also claim that the company that owned the plane did not properly maintain or test the plane. They request a jury trial.

It is fair to say that no one is prepared for the sudden, unexpected loss of a loved one in a manner such as this. Though no amount of compensation that can bring back their loved one or diminish their loss, it may help them achieve a sense of justice and peace in knowing that the party or parties responsible for their loss have been held accountable. It has already been a year; it could take at least another year or more to reach a settlement. If any of the families are struggling to sustain themselves financially through the long court battle, they may want to consider lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against your pending claim. This means you can receive cash today and repay the advance once your case settles. The money can be used for anything you wish, although is typical used to pay medical bills, day-to-day living expenses, or any other financial obligations.

A lawsuit cash advance is easy to apply for, requires no credit check or employment history, requires no upfront fees or costs, and not monthly payment need be made. 'Lawsuit loan' companies look only to the value and quality of the lawsuit for collateral. Personal finances do not matter. Most importantly, the money is provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning if the case is lost the repayment is completely waived. Once an applicant is approved, the money is sent, by check or wire, within 24 - 48 hours.

Lawsuit Funding May Be Able To Help Family Of Young Girl Killed In DUI Crash

A woman and three young girls were on their way home, when a Cadillac Deville drifted into their lane. Despite the woman’s attempt to swerve out of the way, the Cadillac hit her minivan on the passenger side. After being hit, the van struck a building. The Cadillac driver ran from the scene, but thanks to witness descriptions, he was later apprehended and taken into custody. Police said the man displayed signs of intoxication when taken into custody. He has since been charged with four counts of aggravated drunken driving, two counts of drunken driving and a single count of leaving the scene of the crash. The child in the front passenger seat was pronounced dead at the hospital; the other two girls were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The female driver was not injured.

Auto accidents are bad enough, but there is absolutely no excuse for driving under the influence. A young child lost her life because of a man who made a conscious decision to drink and get behind the wheel; it is a senseless and preventable act.

The family of the deceased will most likely file a wrongful death lawsuit. Unfortunately, our legal system unintentionally victimizes the victims all over again through a long, drawn out litigation process. Achieving maximum compensation can take months, even years. Medical expenses, funeral expenses, and other damages can lead to a financial downward spiral until the case settles. For those unable to maintain financial stability, Lawsuit Financial can help by providing a no risk lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

A plaintiff can apply for lawsuit funding in less than five minutes. There are no credit checks and employment is not necessary.

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, let Lawsuit Financial help you get back financial control of your life, allowing time for the justice system to work in your case. The application process is quick and easy, and can be done online or call our office at 1-877-377-7848 for a free, no-obligation evaluation of your case.

Passenger Killed In Single-Vehicle Crash When Driver Falls Asleep Behind the Wheel

One of the most common causes of auto accidents on our roadways is fatigue. Unfortunately, drivers often underestimate this risk and overestimate their ability to combat drowsiness behind the wheel. When this happens, serious and fatal accidents can occur.

A man was killed when the van in which he was a passenger ran off I-495 in Knightdale, N.C., crashed and overturned. The crash occurred at approximately 1:30 a.m. According to the Highway Patrol, after the driver fell asleep behind the wheel, the van went off the right side of the road at high speed. The driver then overcorrected and the vehicle went off the left side of the road, up an embankment and overturned. The passenger died at the scene; he was not wearing a seatbelt. The driver and two other passengers were treated at a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The drive has since been charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and driving on a revoked license. It is likely he will also face a wrongful death lawsuit.

For the victim’s family, life won’t wait for a lawsuit to settle nor should they be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar because of pressing financial needs. After consulting an experienced attorney, if the family of the deceased man is experiencing financial difficulty, Lawsuit Financial may be able to provide “immediate cash” while waiting out the litigation process. This cash comes in the form of a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding can help supplement loss of income, pay funeral expenses, pay down debt, and cover everyday living expenses in order to wait for fair compensation. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full case value.

The application process is quick and easy because the only requirements are attorney representation, a case with merit, and a serious financial need. There is no cost to apply, no upfront fees, no monthly payments, no credit checks and no hassles. Once a plaintiff is approved for funding, the money arrives typically within 24-48 hours. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, so if the plaintiff loses the case, there is no obligation to pay us back. The process is really that simple.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another driver, Lawsuit Financial recommends you consult an experienced auto accident attorney to understand your rights. Once you retain an attorney and file a wrongful injury lawsuit, if you are facing financial devastation, give us a call or complete our online form to get immediate financial relief.

Lawsuit Alleges Medical Negligence In Spine Surgery

A woman filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against several healthcare providers alleging that they botched her spinal surgery. According to the suit, the plaintiff says she underwent spine surgeries and sustained physical injuries that required additional medical treatment because the defendants allegedly used bone morphogenic protein inappropriately and in improper amounts, performed surgery unnecessary surgery, and failed to perform procedures in a timely manner. The lawsuit seeks a trial by jury and compensation in an amount greater than $50,000.

This case is underway, but it most likely will be a long legal process. The burden of proof is on the patient to show where and how the negligence occurred. Even if the plaintiff and her attorney are able to prove it, they will still need to present the case to a jury who will determine a fair and equitable settlement. It won’t be a simple process as the defendant will most likely argue that the harm done was either unpreventable, or not the fault of the surgeon. As the plaintiff proceeds through this difficult time, she may find herself under financial duress. The bills may begin to pile up – medical expenses, mortgage, utilities, and more. How can she make ends meet? Where can she turn for financial help so as not to be forced to settle for less than full compensation?

Lawsuit funding is often the answer to difficult situations where a family or individual is struggling to make ends meet without sufficient funds to handle unexpected medical bills and ordinary living expenses, all while trying to pick of the pieces of their shattered lives. With a lawsuit cash advance, the repayment is contingent on the outcome of the lawsuit. That means if the plaintiff loses their case, they do not have to pay the money back. After completing an application, a case can be evaluated and if approved, funds can be wired into your account within 24-48 hours. Why struggle any longer? The call is free; the advice is priceless.

Litigation Funding Can Prevent Just Compensation From Slipping Away

When you enter a store, you expect the space to be reasonably safe; you expect storefronts to be free of hazards that could potentially cause harm. When injuries result from slipping on a wet store floor, falling on an icy sidewalk, catching a heel on broken concrete, or due to some other lapse in care, you may have a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

During this time, you may face surgery, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and time off work. Debilitating injuries may require months, even years of medical care. Money may become tight. Compounded with a lengthy litigation process, you may be left with mounting medical bills and daily living expenses and no way to pay them. You may be a viable candidate for slip and fall litigation funding.

Don’t take any chances with your finances. With litigation funding, there is no reason to settle your case prematurely due to pressing financial burdens.

Family Files Lawsuit Over Death of Motorcyclist Struck By Felled Tree

A motorcyclist was killed when he collided with a falling tree in October 2014. The tree had been felled by a group of Boy Scouts with a permit for cutting down trees for firewood — according to reports. According to a spokesperson for the Utah Department of Public Safety, the man had no time to react. A doctor who was with the Boy Scouts pronounced the man dead at the scene. Although the group of boys were under adult supervision at the time of the accident, it was determined that two boys had stepped away from the main group cutting trees, and they were the ones that happened to fell the tree that killed the motorcyclist. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.

Last year, the Utah Attorney General's Office issued a decision, supported by all law enforcement agencies, that there was insufficient evidence that the Scouts involved in the incident had the "required mental state, intent, or recklessness necessary [under state law] to reasonably convince a judge or jury they committed a crime," and recommended against prosecution "as the incident was a tragic accident."

Family members have filed a lawsuit accusing the Boy Scouts of America and several others of negligence, including troop leaders and the scouts that cut down the tree and their parents. According to the suit, the troop had a permit for the removal of fallen firewood, but the approval did not allow the removal of green trees or standing trees. The tree that felled and killed the man was a live, green aspen tree according to the claim. The suit also alleges that the troop leaders were "grossly negligent" to entrust tree-removal tools to the Scouts and not supervise the boys. The two boys that cut the tree were not under adult supervision at the time. The suit seeks an unspecified amount of money.

Seeking compensation will not bring this man back, but it will help pay funeral expenses, ongoing living expenses, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, tragedies like this one will often cause family members to struggle, financially, to pay the bills associated with the death of a loved one and a wrongful death lawsuit such as this can be very contentious and often take years to resolve. With a solid lawsuit as collateral, they could apply for a lawsuit cash advance; emergency lawsuit funding to keep afloat financially while awaiting a settlement. A lawsuit cash advance relieves the financial pressure, allowing a plaintiff the ability to wait for a fair and equitable settlement or jury verdict.

Lawsuit Financial provides strategic pre-settlement funding; once approved, the cash advance can be available within 24-48 hours. The plaintiff pays no monthly fees; he/she is only obligated to repay the cash advance if the lawsuit resolves successfully. The obligation is completely excused if the case is lost.

If you have sustained significant injuries, or lost a loved one, due to the negligence of someone else and need financial assistance during your pending lawsuit, Lawsuit Financial may be able to provide the cash advance you need. Contact us by completing our online application or call us toll-free at 1-877-377-7848. A member of our team would be happy to discuss your funding options.

Semi-Truck Driver Attempting To Avoid Vehicle Dies After Slamming Into Bridge Embankment

A truck driver was fatally injured after slamming into an embankment on Interstate 55.

According to Illinois State Police, a witness to the crash said that a Nissan Maxima on the left shoulder pulled onto the highway, in the path of the truck. The semi-truck driver swerved but could not avoid hitting the Nissan, sending it off the left side of the road and into a median cable barrier. The truck veered off the right and slammed into a bridge embankment. The driver of the Nissan suffered serious injuries; the truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash is under investigation.

Death of a family member, especially a bread winner, caused by the fault of another person can have devastating legal and financial consequences for the unfortunate victim’s family. Wrongful death lawsuits or claims are generally filed by surviving family members or beneficiaries of the deceased victim. The family can collect monetary damages to cover the loss of earnings that the victim would have made in his lifetime, death associated expenses (funerals, medical bills), pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.

While the at-fault driver may find in difficult to avoid liability, the possibility still remains that the truck driver may have contributed to the crash, lessening the at-fault driver’s responsibility. For example, if the investigation determines that the trucker was speeding, he may be held partially liable. Insurance companies will fight to the end and attempt to deny, delay, and defend the claim. Even if it is determined that the Nissan driver was clearly at fault, the insurance company won’t automatically agree. It must be proven through a police report, witness testimony, and other evidence. This can delay a lawsuit for years. If the family needs financial assistance during this time, Lawsuit Financial can help.

A series of well-placed lawsuit cash advances can help the stay financially afloat during a lengthy litigation process. With non-recourse lawsuit funding, the family can take care of their financial obligations while giving their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice. The first step would be to complete an online funding application. Lawsuit Financial will, then, work with the plaintiff’s attorney to gather necessary information to process the funding request as quickly as possible. Upon approval, funds can be available for immediate use within 24 – 48 hours. We are repaid once your case is settled but if the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

If you are looking to secure lawsuit funding for your pending wrongful death lawsuit, consider lawsuit funding and contact Lawsuit Financial at 1-877-377-7848 for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Five Teens Killed, Several Other People Injured in Multiple Crashes By Wrong-way Driver

Five Vermont teens are dead in a head-on collision and several other people injured after several crashes along Interstate 89 in Williston.

Police had received over a dozen calls about a pick-up truck traveling the wrong way down the highway. They were responding to the area when calls starting coming in reporting a head-on crash. Arriving at the scene, police found the vehicle with the five teens in flames. While officers tried to extinguish the fire, a man stole the police cruiser and sped away. As police tried to stop him, the man turned the cruiser around and began heading back toward the crash scene. The cruiser then struck seven vehicles, including the pick-up truck, which was still in the middle of the intersection. The man behind the wheel of the police cruiser was thrown from the vehicle, which also burst into flames. All five teens were pronounced dead at the scene. The negligent driver was taken into custody before transported to an area hospital in critical condition. Several others were injured, but none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

Quite probably, the families of the deceased teens will in time file wrongful death lawsuits against the negligent driver. Wrongful death lawsuits can take months to several years to reach a settlement. Meanwhile plaintiffs must still pay the bills and meet their financial obligations. When money is tight, one solution is to secure a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is cash received in advance of a settlement that, hopefully, permits victims to deal with their crucial expenses right away, enabling them to wait out the long, legal process and achieve appropriate justice. Victims are eligible for funding once they have attorney representation.

The process begins with completing a one-page application upon which time the funding company will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for supporting case documentation. Funding is based solely on the strength of the lawsuit; there are no credit checks or employment verification. If the case is approved for funding, the money can arrive within 24 – 48 hours. There are no restrictions on the money’s use. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles; if the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, legal action can be taken. Although a wrong-way accident may seem easy to prove and often settle through negotiations, the process oftentimes requires an experienced attorney to obtain full and just compensations for damages. Once the suit is filed, you can apply for lawsuit funding by contacting Lawsuit Financial. Our experienced and professional staff is waiting to answer your questions and help you understand the lawsuit finance process. If you do not have an attorney, we have a network of attorneys all over the country waiting to assist you. We would be happy to provide one in your area at no cost to you.

Post Settlement Lawsuit Funding: Quick Cash for Your Settled Lawsuit

It may be a known fact that personal injury lawsuits can take months, even years to wind through the legal process, but most people are unaware of the amount of time it can take to receive payment from their case. When a plaintiff is successful in winning compensation, it could still take several months or years to actually receive the settlement, especially if the defense files an appeal. The problem is that most seriously injured plaintiffs are already cash-strapped. Mortgage payments, rent, medical bills, and everyday living expenses add up quickly, especially when you are unable to work. Post-settlement lawsuit funding can bridge the gap until compensation is received.

While waiting for your lawsuit settlement funds to be released, Lawsuit Financial can provide a cash advance – usually within 24 to 48 hours – of receiving your application because we base funding decisions solely on the strength of your case, not personal credit or employment history. Upon approval, we’ll send your money overnight or via direct deposit. The money can be used immediately for anything you wish. There are absolutely upfront fees, monthly payments, or risks to you. We are repaid once the settlement is disbursed, but if the case is lost on appeal the repayment is waived.

Contact Lawsuit Financial today to see how we may be able to bridge the gap between when your personal injury case settles and when the settlement funds are disbursed.

Restaurant Blamed for Slip and Fall Accident

Slip and fall accidents commonly occur due to uneven walking surfaces, holes or cracks in the ground, slippery floors, steps, or sidewalks, poorly marked hazards, or lack of maintenance. These accidents can occur in a number of places such as sidewalks, stores, schools, restaurants, and hospitals. They can result in debilitating injuries that may require months or even years of medical care.

A person injured in a slip and fall accident due to a property owner’s negligence may be eligible to receive compensatory damages, including payment of medical bills, lost wages, compensation for permanent disability, emotional distress, and other reasonable damages associated with the accident.

Case in point is a lawsuit recently filed by an Ohio couple. After having breakfast at a local restaurant, the man slipped on an icy surface and fell, causing injury to his wrist. As a result, he was out of work for months and endured significant medical expenses. The lawsuit alleges that the restaurant failed to exercise reasonable care and caution in the operation and maintenance of its premises. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Victims of slip and fall accidents are often unable to work. Compounding their financial strain is a lengthy litigation process while their attorney tries to prove that the property owner or their employees:

• should have identified the hazard that caused the slip and fall accident and repaired it, but failed to do so, or
• caused the unsafe condition which resulted in the accident, and it was reasonably probable that an individual could have suffered injuries due to this dangerous condition.

To bridge the gap during a pending claim, this unfortunate victim might want to find out if he is eligible for lawsuit funding, a cash advance based on the anticipated proceeds of a future settlement or jury award.

The application process is free! We do not require a credit check and it doesn’t matter if he is still out of work. Once approved, the money can be available in as little as 24 hours. Lawsuit funding is not like a typical loan. If the case doesn’t result in a favorable settlement, the plaintiff is under no obligation to repay the cash advance.

At Lawsuit Financial, we understand that a lawsuit cash advance can make the difference between an early – and unfair –settlement and getting the full compensation you deserve. If you believe you could benefit from lawsuit funding, complete our online application or call our office toll-free at 1-877-377-7848 to speak to one of our experienced funding representatives.

Strategically Time Litigation Funding Can Make a Huge Difference in Litigation Outcome

Being involved in a serious auto accident may be the most traumatic experience anyone endures in their lifetime. In addition to the physical and mental pain, there is the added stress of how to pay the bills and support a family. Banks typically will not provide a traditional loan when a pending legal claim is the collateral for the loan. That leaves plaintiffs relying on savings, friends or family for assistance. If these sources are depleted or, worse, not available at all, the only avenue left to a desperate plaintiff is to settle early for less than full case value. Nowadays, plaintiffs can seek a lawsuit cash advance, known as litigation funding.

Let Lawsuit Financial explain by way of example. (To protect plaintiff privacy, we have removed any reference to names.)

The family of a 21-year-old Illinois man killed in a car crash last March has filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging negligence. The deceased man (let’s call him John) was driving southbound while another driver (let’s call him Tom) was driving northbound, crossed the center line and struck John’s car. John was pronounced dead at the scene. Tom suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The lawsuit alleges that Tom was negligent, failed to take proper precautions, and may have been distracted when he crossed into the southbound lanes, colliding head-on into John’s vehicle. The suit seeks unspecified damages. A court date is set for early December.

While defendants are financially backed by huge, billion dollar insurance companies during a pending claim, most plaintiffs are not in a financial position to withstand a lengthy litigation process. This reality is a major reason why most defendants use delay tactics in litigation.
Now that this family has retained an attorney and filed a lawsuit, they may be able to take advantage of litigation funding to help pay the bills (medical bills, funeral expenses, mortgage, and monthly household expenses) and level the playing field to achieve substantially improved case results. Here are a few factors to consider when trying to determine if litigation funding is the right choice:

• Is the family more concerned about their growing, immediate, financial issues than about receiving full compensation?

• Is the family facing eviction, foreclosure, repossession of their vehicle or other significant loss of valuable property?

• Is the family unable to put food on the table or pay for other necessities of life?

• Is the family seriously considering settling their valuable case for inadequate compensation?

If the answer is “yes” to most or all of these questions, this family is a likely candidate for litigation funding. And, if timed strategically, funding should make a huge difference in litigation outcome. Assuming a solid case, the ability to wait out the process should, almost always, benefit the plaintiff.

To get started, they would complete a litigation funding application online or over the phone. Next, Lawsuit Financial would contact the family attorney to obtain basic documentation to help us determine case strength and the amount of funding to be approved. There are no credit checks or employment verification. We fund based on case strength and can typically approve a case within 24 – 48 hours. Once a plaintiff is financially stable, waiting for compensation deserved is easier. If by chance the case is lost, the plaintiff would be under no obligation to repay the lawsuit cash advance. That is correct – lose the case and Lawsuit Financial does not need to be repaid.

To inquire how litigation funding may be able to help you during a pending lawsuit, give us a call at 1-877-377-7848 or apply online.
