School Bus Bursts Into Flame, Kids Injured


There were 40 students and 10 adults on a school bus; a fire broke out as the bus was traveling on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles, California. Police were on the scene instantly and helped evacuate the bus while fire crews arrived to handle the blaze. The fire was extinguished in 11 minutes.

Investigators are not sure what caused the fire to break out suddenly, the vehicle maintenance log and safety history will be examined. Two students were taken to hospital and listed in serious but stable condition, suffering from smoke inhalation.

Smoke inhalation may cause some serious physical problems, especially in younger adults; intense smoke and flame can literally burn the lungs. If this becomes an ongoing and expensive medical issue, it is appropriate for the families to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who specializes in fire and explosion cases.

If they decide to retain an attorney and pursue litigation, they may be eligible to receive lawsuit funding. This is a service that provides a lawsuit cash advance, money against their future settlement or verdict in the now pending case. Because the cases deal with minor children, it is likely that litigation funding can only be applied for and used for medical expenses and bills that the families expend in care of the children. With adult injuries, families may use pre-settlement funding for any important bills or expenses, like mortgage or car payments. With minors, however, since compensation is due someone too young to contract, legal finance may only be provided for the child's own needs. If you have questions about these technicalities, feel free to seek free telephone advice.

Litigation funding may be applied for by phone or by going online. The application is free; if approved, there are no monthly payments or upfront fees to pay. If you lose the case, you keep the money, free of charge; this is known as non-recourse lawsuit funding.

Don't settle a valuable case for pennies on the dollar so that you can obtain medical care for a loved one. A lawsuit cash advance will help you through the litigation process so that you can obtain maximum case value for your precious loved ones. Don't let an insurance company bully you into settling for too little, too soon. Get some legal funding advice first. The call is free; the advice may be priceless
