Litigation Funding Supports Victims Until Receipt of Injury Claim Settlement

A “personal injury” is that life-changing moment when you are seriously injured as the result of the negligence or carelessness of someone else. As you face this difficult time, you may also find yourself waiting a long time for your case to produce justice. If in this unfortunate situation, litigation funding could provide some financial peace of mind.

Following a serious auto accident, a plaintiff could experience severe financial difficulties from the inability to work, sudden medical bills, and the stress of meeting daily living expenses for themselves and those they support. When savings are depleted and friends and family are unable to help, injured plaintiffs can turn to litigation funding.

A young man recently settled a personal injury lawsuit for the catastrophic injuries he sustained in an auto accident five years ago. He had recently turned 16. The accident happened when a distracted driver veered into oncoming traffic at 50 mph, slamming into the SUV in which the young man was a passenger. The SUV spun around before going down an embankment. The passenger suffered severe traumatic brain injuries and will require round-the-clock care the rest of his life; both drivers escaped with minor injuries. The lawsuit settled for an undisclosed amount.

While no money can take away the physical challenges this young man faces every day, at least he has the financial security to provide himself with accommodation, equipment and care that would otherwise be unavailable or the responsibility of the taxpayers.

Litigation funding is clearly worth consideration for any plaintiff struggling financially while waiting for a settlement or verdict in a pending personal injury lawsuit. In simple terms, a legal finance company provides you with a cash advance on the money you will receive once your case settles, typically within 48 hours and without the need of a credit check or employment verification. The only requirement to obtain a cash advance is a strong case and legal representation. Repayment is made only when the case settles. If the funded plaintiff loses the case, there is no obligation to repay the funding company.

If you have sustained serious injuries in an accident and need financial assistance while in the litigation process, litigation funding may be right for you. The easiest and fastest way to get started is by completing an online funding application. This takes five minutes or less. Next, the funding company will request case documentation from your attorney. After evaluating the case, if you application is approved, both you and your attorney will sign a funding agreement. Your funds can be wired directly into your bank account within 24-48 hours.

The driver of that vehicle died at the scene; his wife was treated at an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. After striking the first vehicle, the semi hit a Honda Pilot and a trailer hauling chicken wings. The semi and Honda became engulfed in flames killing the semi driver and three people in the Honda. Three additional passenger vehicles sustained minor damage in the crash. The accident remains under investigation, but State Police believe the Illini semi-truck driver may have fallen asleep or was not paying attention to the road.

Drivers Education Students in Fatal Auto Accident

Three teens were killed last week when a student driver slammed into a tractor trailer. The driver of the truck said the car initially stopped at the blinking red light, then suddenly went into the intersection as he was already proceeding through it. He couldn't stop in time and T-boned the side rear of the car. The truck driver had a blinking yellow light, giving it the right of way.
Since 2005, the town has made multiple requests to change the light from a blinking intersection to a full functional light because it has been a “difficult intersection.” There have been a total of 36 accidents at the intersection, two fatal. As the investigation continues, county officials have agreed to meet over the safety issue.

When an unlicensed driver on the road during a driver’s education lesson causes an auto accident, liability can be complicated. Victims may wish to file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit against:

• the student driver for her careless or distracted driving
• the instructor for his careless or negligent supervision or instruction, and/or
• the driving school for the negligent actions of its employees

In this case, the county could also be held liable for failing to fulfill its obligations of providing a safer road. It is important for families of the victims to talk to an experienced personal injury attorney to understand all their options, and to make sure their legal rights are protected. If a lawsuit is filed, it could take months, even years to settle. During that time, the last thing these families need is to be faced with financial issues. Fortunately, pre-settlement lawsuit funding may be an option.

Medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages, and daily-living expenses can create an overwhelming financial burden. Lawsuit funding is financial assistance to help auto accident victims and their families pay not only expenses associated with the accident, but daily living expenses as well. This non-recourse cash advance requires no credit check, no employment verification, and no monthly payments. The only requirement for eligibility is a strong case and attorney representation. The application takes about five minutes; approval can often be available in as little as 24 hours. Repayment of the cash advance is only made once the case successfully settles; lose and the repayment is completely waived.

Four Lives Took a Back Seat to One Man’s Desire to Drive under the Influence

A group of young women had hired a limo so they could drink responsibly during a series of visits to North Fork wineries. As the limo was making a U-turn at a blinking traffic signal, it was struck broadside by a pick-up truck. Four women in the limo died - three at the site of the accident; another at the hospital. Three other passengers, the limo driver and the driver of the pick-up truck were injured and treated at the hospital. The fatal accident is still under investigation, but the truck driver was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. Part of the investigation will include if the limo driver was making an illegal U-turn and if the driver of the pick-up fled the scene as some reports have indicated.

In addition to facing criminal liabilities, the truck driver could face civil claims. Additionally, if it is determined that the limo driver made an illegal U-turn, he and the limo company could also be held accountable. A wrongful death lawsuit may help in the recovery of damages as well as provide a sense of closure.

During a pending lawsuit, loved ones of the deceased could suffer serious financial burdens. Financial assistance, in the form of pre-settlement lawsuit funding, could help reduce that hardship. An application takes less than five minutes, and often times funding can be received within 24 hours. We can do this because there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. At Lawsuit Financial, we provide funding based solely on the strength of the lawsuit. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, so if the plaintiff loses the case, there is no obligation to pay us back.

If you have been seriously injured due to the negligence of someone else and need financial assistance, consider lawsuit funding to ease your financial burden and give your attorney the time needed to obtain full value in your case. Call our office or complete our free, online application. We may be able to provide the cash you need today for the settlement you deserve tomorrow.

Victims Obtain Justice from Distracted Driver Accidents with the Help of Lawsuit Funding

The ability to “stay in touch”, at all times, from virtually anywhere, makes cell phones an important business and social tool. While cell phones have certainly become a reality of everyday life, it is important that drivers recognize that using them while behind the wheel puts EVERYONE - driver, passengers, pedestrians and others in serious danger.

Study-after-study has shown that distracted driving from cell phone use hampers reaction time as much as a drunk driver with a blood alcohol level of 0.08--that's beyond the legal limit in many states. Yet, while most people are strong supporters against drunk driving, many of those same people will drive in a state of equal impairment (distracted by cell phone use) and scoff at the notion that the two are similar. That is until, of course, serious or deadly consequences result and the physical, emotional, and financial impacts are felt. It is then that the need for lawsuit funding becomes apparent --and necessary.

A personal injury attorney can stand up for the rights of seriously injured victims, or family member who lost a loved one due to a distracted driver. Achieving maximum compensation can take time. Unfortunately, many victims are not in a financial position to wait out the litigation process because bills must be paid. If the plaintiff is unemployed or has poor credit, banks will usually not grant a loan. Even if approved for a bank loan, the victim would be required to make monthly payments and pay back the loan no matter the outcome of the case. Insurance companies know all this and won’t hesitate to pressure victims into accepting the lowest possible settlement.

Before that happens, a better option would be lawsuit funding, a cash advance against the pending lawsuit. A legal funding company understands the financial situation facing plaintiffs and knows the lengths that insurance companies will go through to reach a less-than-fair settlement offer. With a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs can level the playing field and push for justice.

Funding is based solely by the pending lawsuit. There are no upfront fees, no credit or employment checks and no monthly payments. Repayment of the cash advance is from the proceeds of the case, but if the plaintiff loses, the repayment is waived in its entirety.

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling financially, put the justice system to work for you by getting back financial control of your life with the help of Lawsuit Financial. The application process is quick and easy, and can be done online. Once we determine if a case has merit and is approved for funding, you can have cash in hand within 48 hours or less.

Lawsuit Alleges Lack of Warning on Mirena Side Effects

It can be difficult to prove a drug company produced a drug that is capable of injuring people. Large companies usually defend themselves by pointing to long list of side effects and showing that they warned the public in advance.

Since Mirena hit the market, it has become one of the most popular birth control devices in the U.S. Known for its convenience, Mirena is an intrauterine birth control device that promised to provide effective contraception to women, but instead has led to a wave of products liability litigation.

A number of women have reported suffering serious and debilitating injuries from side effects of Mirena Intrauterine Device (IUD), where the implanted birth control perforates the uterus, migrates to other areas of the body and causes uterine perforation, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts, and irregular bleeding. Although the Mirena warning labels indicate that there is a risk of perforation, the information provided to consumers suggests that such problems only occur during insertion of the IUD. A number of women have experienced “spontaneous” Mirena IUD complications that have occurred after the device was inserted, sometimes years later. When the IUD migrates from its original placement, it will no longer work to prevent pregnancy, but women who become pregnant are more likely to experience an ectopic pregnancy. Infections that may result from Mirena perforations may lead to diminished fertility or a woman’s inability to conceive a child. According to FDA reports, there have been more than 45,000 adverse events reported.

Lawsuits alleged that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. knew – or should have known – that implantations could cause serious complications yet they failed to warn patients and doctors of the potential health risks. Among the many claims of negligence, Bayer is accused of intentionally selling a dangerous product, deceptive advertising and concealing the risk of complications. In fact, the FDA has sent Bayer warning letters for failing to communicate risk information about Mirena. The lawsuits further contend that the IUD suffers design and manufacturing defects.

Though the FDA has not implemented a Mirena recall, if you or someone you love has been injured by Mirena IUD side effects, you should contact an experienced product liability attorney. You may be may be eligible to file a Mirena lawsuit seeking compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. However, with the volume of complaints, this is not going to happen overnight. For plaintiffs facing financial burden, lawsuit funding can help.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance to help plaintiffs cover bills and expenses such as mortgage or rent, car payments, utilities, medical expenses, etc. during their pending lawsuit. The benefit of this type of cash advance is that funding is provided based solely on case strength. Once approved, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours. There is no need for a credit check, employment verification, monthly payments, or upfront fees. The cash advance does not need to be repaid until the case successfully settles; in the event that no settlement is reached the cash advance is completely waived.

Don’t let financial issues force you to settle quickly. To learn more about lawsuit funding and how it can help you during your pending lawsuit, call Lawsuit Financial. If you decide lawsuit funding is right for you, complete our online application.

Lawsuit Funding Provides Financial Relief After Fatal Drunk Driving Accidents

A 21-year-old man faces felony DUI charges in connection with a fiery auto accident that killed a 19-year-old Cal State Northridge student and injured five other people. Police believe the accident occurred when the man’s Hondo Civic ran a red light and collided with a Ford Mustang driven by the teen. The Mustang burst into flames upon impact; the driver was pronounced dead at the scene. All four occupants of the Civic were hospitalized, including one passenger in critical condition. The driver suffered a broken leg.

Although it may be difficult for surviving family members to think about taking legal action following the loss of a loved, a wrongful death lawsuit is the only way to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions and for the family to seek compensation for damages. In addition to compensation for funeral costs and other expenses resulting from the death, the family can also seek damages for the loss of present and future earnings as well as intangible elements of life, such as loss of companionship.

The loss of a family member almost always results in financial difficulty for the victim's survivors. Although the insurance company may offer an immediate settlement, oftentimes it is much less than the overall expenses related to the accident. For those needing immediate financial assistance, lawsuit funding can be a viable option. Lawsuit funding is emergency cash provided in advance of an expected settlement. By securing a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs can not only pay the bills, but can ultimately help their attorney fight for fair compensation without having to settle your case prematurely.

Lawsuit Financial is one of the country's most experienced providers of legal funding services. We provide a free consultation and, if you are approved and receive lawsuit funding, we charge no fee unless you win your case. It is easy to apply by phone or online; the only necessary documentation is case details from your attorney to determine the strength of the case. We do not require a credit check, employment verification, monthly payments, or upfront fees. Best of all, repayment is excused if you lose. If approved, cash can be available within 24 - 48 hours.

If you believe a lawsuit cash advance could help you survive during the pursuit of your legal claim, you owe it to yourself to contact Lawsuit Financial for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

Never Be Forced to Accept a Low Ball Settlement. Keep Your Case Alive with Lawsuit Funding

Have you been hurt in an auto accident due to the negligence of another driver? Rather than go to court, the other driver’s insurance company may offer to settle your claim. For those living paycheck to paycheck, any offer may be tempting to accept. This may not be in your best interest. Insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind. Their settlement offer may only be a fraction of the value of your case because the job of an insurance adjuster is to pay as little as possible on your claim.

An experienced attorney can help you fight for your rights and obtain the best possible value for your case. Unfortunately, the process can be long and difficult while your attorney works to get you the best settlement possible. Meanwhile, your unpaid bills are mounting. How much longer can you hold out? In cases like this, Lawsuit Financial has a solution - lawsuit funding.

There are two requirements to be eligible for a lawsuit cash advance; you must have attorney representation and your case must be filed in court. Next, complete a funding application online or over the phone. The application process is quick and easy; we require no employment or credit checks, no upfront fees and no monthly payments. If we approve your request for funding, we work with you and your attorney to put together a lawsuit cash advance that meets your needs. Once a contract is signed, funds can be made available as quickly as 24 hours. Use the money however you wish – medical bills, mortgage, purchase a new car, daily living expenses, etc. Because lawsuit funding is provided risk-free, you pay nothing unless you recover compensation. That’s correct, you owe nothing if you lose your case.

If you are unwilling to take pennies on the dollar, but can't financially sustain yourself during a lengthy litigation process, contact Lawsuit Financial today about a lawsuit cash advance.

Lumber Company Fined for Safety Violations. Will Wrongful Death Lawsuit Follow?

Manke Lumber Company, a Wisconsin sawmill, has been cited for 25 serious violations and 11 general safety and health violations following an investigation into the death of an employee. The man was killed last December after his clothing was caught by a rotating shaft that pulled him into a conveyor as he tried to loosen jammed lumber. Among the violations, Manke was fined for not ensuring grinders were guarded and failing to safeguarding exposed shafts at four locations, including where the worker died. The company was also cited for hazards related to “confined spaces” such as hoppers, conveyors and dryers. The Department of Labor & Industries says the fines topped $87,000. Manke has 15 business days to appeal.

There has been no indication whether the family members of the deceased are considering legal action in the event of the investigation showing safety concerns at the plant. While any monetary damages do not replace the loss of life, employers like Manke should be held accountable for their wrongdoing.

If the family of the deceased seeks legal counsel and files a wrongful death lawsuit, the suit is independent of any action by OSHA as a result of the findings of their investigation. Unfortunately, it can be a long wait to seek justice. Meanwhile, bills still have to be paid. When it gets to the point where the financial stress is too much, the family may wish to apply for lawsuit funding.

Here's how it works: We will look at the case, and if our underwriters believe that the case has merit, we will advance a portion of the expected settlement to the plaintiff. A lawsuit cash advance can be used for any reason, however it is recommended that it be used to meet important necessities, such as paying the mortgage/rent, utilities, car payments, food, or to assist with outstanding medical bills or funeral and burial expenses. We assume all the risks; if the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is completely waived.

The application process takes less than five minutes. We do not require a credit check or employment verification; a lawsuit cash advance from Lawsuit Financial is based strictly on the merits of the case. If approved, funds can be deposited directly into the plaintiff’s bank account within 48 hours.

If you are involved in a pending wrongful death or personal injury claim and seeking financial assistance until a settlement is reached, contact Lawsuit Financial for a free case evaluation or apply online. We are here ready to help you!

Balcony Collapse may be the Result of Dry Rot and More Lawsuits Against Already Plagued Construction Company

As the tragedy that took the lives if six Irish students in near the University of California – Berkeley last week is still under investigation, it seems clear that Segue Construction, the construction company that built the Liberty Garden apartments, may face numerous lawsuits.

After reviewing detailed photos of the damage, a structural engineer said water had gotten in between the balcony and the building, causing dry rot. The rot may have weakened the cantilever section holding up the balcony. A building code expert said that the lower balcony also had moisture issues and was also structurally unsafe. In the meantime, records show Segue Corporation has over 10 worksite-related safety violations from the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health and at least four lawsuits over water damaged balconies that prematurely rotted and fell off of buildings. The lawsuits accused the company of leaving newly constructed buildings susceptible to water incursion that damaged wood beams. Segue paid more than $6 million to settle two of them, according to court records. A Cal-OSHA senior industrial engineer sued Segue in August 2013, alleging wood used in framing fell on his head during an inspection, and an unresolved 2013 lawsuit by Danville Senior Housing Associates alleges water intrusion caused tangible property damage.

Although a crisis management public relations specialist hired by the Segue says that it is too soon to speculate, families of the victims may wish to seek advice from an experienced attorney. Once lawsuits are filed, plaintiffs will undoubtedly wait a long time for case resolution.

While it is important for the families of the deceased victims to win their case, it may be equally important to maintain financial stability without settling a case too early. This may be possible by securing lawsuit funding against their pending claim. When someone is seeking a settlement advance for a wrongful death case, they oftentimes use the funding to help pay for associated expenses, such as funeral and burial expenses. Funding can also be used as leverage, allowing their attorney extra time to negotiate a fair settlement.

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling financially, we may be able to help you get back financial control of your life with a lawsuit cash advance. The application process is quick and easy, and can be done online. All that is needed is a case with merit; we don’t require a credit check or monthly payments. Once approved, funding can be available for use in 48 hours or less. We are repaid only when the case successfully settles; if you lose the case, the cash advance is completely waived. Call Lawsuit Financial today or visit us online. A representative would be happy to answer any questions and assist you with processing your application.

Lawsuit Funding Solutions for Your Premise Liability Lawsuit

Premises liability is an area of personal injury law; it revolves around injuries or deaths that occur on someone else’s property – either a residence, business, or state, county and municipal property. In most jurisdictions, property owners have a duty to maintain their property, to inspect the premises for problems and to warn of hazardous conditions. Because of this doctrine, we feel confident we will be safe when walking down the aisle of the grocery store or entering a mall or restaurant. If the premises owner shirks this important duty, however, you may slip, trip, fall or suffer another type of accident. The most serious cases can result in lifelong disabilities or death.

When injury or death occurs, the victim or a loved one may have the right to file a lawsuit to recover damages. Typically, the kinds of damages that may be recovered are medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, lost wage and pain and suffering.

If you or a loved one has suffered a premises liability injury, you should speak with an experienced attorney to understand your legal rights to compensation. If it is determined that you have a valid claim, but you are experiencing problems paying the bills until a settlement is reached, you may want to consider lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a service that provides some financial relief to litigants who find themselves having financial difficulties. Assistance comes in the form of a lawsuit cash advance, money that is advanced to you in anticipation of a potential settlement or verdict. It should be used carefully, for serious needs, like mortgage or rent payments, car payments or medical expenses. All that is needed to apply is a strong case. There are no application fees, monthly payments or credit checks. A funding decision can be made as quickly as 24 hours after we receive case documentation. Use the money any way you wish and wait to pay us back from case proceeds. Should you lose your case, you would owe us nothing. Where else can you get risk-free fast cash?
