Paying Your Bills While a Personal Injury Lawsuit is Pending

If you have suffered serious injuries in an auto accident by no fault of your own, you may wish to file a personal injury lawsuit. This can include compensation for medical expenses, vehicle damage, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses resulting from the accident. The litigation process oftentimes takes several months, even years, but insurance companies do not care how long it takes. In fact, they will deny, delay and defend the claim as long as possible. When this happens, a plaintiff’s financial situation can become strained, especially when injuries mean the victim is unable to work, resulting in lost income. A cash-strapped plaintiff will often times accept a smaller settlement just to make ends meet. A better option would be lawsuit funding.

As long as you have attorney representation and a strong case, you are automatically eligible for a lawsuit cash advance. Lawsuit Financial offers a quick and easy application process, one that requires no credit checks or employment verification. After obtaining case documentation, we can make a funding decision within 24 - 48 hours. If approved, the money can be used to pay the mortgage, car payments, utilities, medical expenses, or anything you wish; there is no limitation on how you spend the cash advance.

Lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning we are only repaid once you successfully settle your case, at which time your attorney will pay us from the proceeds of your settlement. If you lose your case, we completely waive repayment. You will never pay us a dime out of your own pocket.

Lawsuit funding is designed to be a funding source of last resort. If you have a pending claim, have exhausted all other means of obtaining funds, and are suffering financial hardship, you may wish to apply for lawsuit funding. Call our office or complete our online application. One of our experienced funding representatives will be happy to assist you.

Nine-Year-Old North Carolina Boy Dies In Single-Vehicle DUI Crash

When a drunk driver injures or kills another person in an auto accident, the victim’s family has a legal right to seek compensation for financial recovery of their losses, including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost present and future wages, and pain and suffering. Lawsuit funding can help pay the bills in the interim so plaintiffs can fight for the compensation deserved.

A wreath with a black ribbon now hangs on a telephone pole as a small reminder of a 9-year-old boy who lost his life to a drunk driver.

The child was riding in a Dodge Caravan with his father’s finance when the woman ran off the road and hit a stop sign before slamming into a utility pole. The force of impact split the pole in half. The young boy was taken to Duke’s Children’s Hospital in North Carolina where he died from injuries sustained. The driver suffered minor injuries. Neither the driver nor the child were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The woman has been charged with driving under the influence, but also faces one felony count of child neglect. She also has a history of driving infractions, including driving under the influence.

The family has set up a GoFundMe account to help the family pay for Julian’s medical and funeral expenses.

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 driver accountable for her actions and for the family to seek compensation for damages.
The loss of a family member almost always results in financial difficulty for the victim's survivors. Unfortunately, a lawsuit can still take months, even years before a settlement is reached. If the GoFundMe account isn’t enough to pay the bills, the family can seek immediate financial assistance from Lawsuit Financial.

Lawsuit Financial is one of the country's most experienced providers of legal funding services. We provide lawsuit cash advances based on case strength; there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. It is easy to apply by phone or online, and we can usually make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. If you are approved and receive lawsuit funding, we charge no fees unless you win your personal injury lawsuit. Lose your case and the repayment is excused.

Has your financial situation become difficult because of a serious injury or death caused by a drunk driver? Our lawsuit funding program can help you meet your financial obligations while you await a fair settlement.

Caltrans May Face Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Man Killed By Flying Metal Nut

An 82-year-old man was struck in the neck and killed by a large metal nut that smashed through the windshield as he drove on Highway 101 in Menlo Park, California. The impact caused him to swerve and collide with the center median. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) said the baseball size nut may have fallen off one if its water trucks, then was kicked up by passing traffic. Caltrans is cooperating with the CHP as they finish their investigation.

By filing a wrongful death suit, the family of the deceased can take some action against those responsible for the loss of your loved one. Cases such as this will require an experience auto accident attorney, one that has successfully pursued claims against negligent government entities.

Suffering the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; the last thing the families need is to face significant financial hardship, too. Lawsuit Financial understands how hard it is to stay financial afloat during a lengthy litigation process. Litigation funding may be an option.
Litigation funding is financial assistance that can help innocent victims pay funeral and burial expenses, monthly bills, or daily living expenses, while allowing their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice. Funding is provided on-recourse cash advance, meaning that it is paid back only out of the settlement of the case. If you don’t win the case, the cash advance does not have to be repaid.

Suffering injuries are the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; don’t succumb to a financial hardship. If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident, have a pending claim and are represented by an attorney on a contingency basis, you may be eligible for litigation funding.

The application process is free and easy and there is no cost to review your case and determine your funding needs. Funding is based on the merits of the case, not on credit-worthiness or employment history verification. If you qualify, cash can often be available in as little as 24 hours.

To determine if you qualify for litigation funding, complete our online application or call Lawsuit Financial toll-free at 877-377-7848 for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Town Settles High Speed Police Chase Lawsuit That Resulted In Two Deaths

The town of Rockport has settled two lawsuits that were filed after a high speed chase last year.

A part-time police officer was in pursuit of a speeding Subaru station wagon driven by Caleb Byras (17) just before midnight on December 5, 2015. Kara Brewer (16) and Emily Vitale (16) were passengers in a vehicle. The officer eventually stopped the pursuit when Byars failed to pull over. Shortly thereafter, Byras lost control of the vehicle, went off the road and crashed into a tree, with such force that the car split into two pieces. It was reported that he had been travelling at 110 mph. Byras and Brewer were killed instantly; Vitale was seriously injured.

The families of the two passengers filed lawsuits against the town, the police department and the officer involved in the chase. The claim on behalf of Ms. Brewer contended that the Rockport police officer’s decision to engage in a high-speed chase through three towns was negligent, violated police policy and caused the death of the teen. The Brewer lawsuit sought $5 million. The Vitale complaint said that it was unreasonable for the officer to engage in the chase, and that the pursuit violated a number of police practices. The Vitale family sought an unspecified amount to cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and emotional anguish. Both claims pointed out that according to the local department’s policy only full-time law enforcement officers may participate in a high-speed pursuit. As part of a settlement, the town paid $200,000 to Brewer’s estate and $100,000 to Vitale.

People who are injured or lost a loved one as a result of a high-speed police chase are victims of negligence and, as such, can pursue the police department and the negligent driver for injuries suffered as the result of an accident. An attorney who specializes in this type of litigation is recommended. Once a lawsuit has been filed, the plaintiffs may qualify for auto accident lawsuit funding to assist with paying the bills while the litigation winds its way through our civil justice system.

Although these cases took less than a year to settle, it doesn’t mean the plaintiffs didn’t struggle financially. Once the lawsuits were filed, these families could have applied for a lawsuit cash advance. Lawsuit Financial is a legal finance company that can offer this service without a credit check, employment verification or monthly payments. Repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case. Furthermore, there are no monthly payments. When the case settles, the cash advance with interest is repaid. But, if the case is lost, repayment is not required. Request for funding applications can be approved as quickly as 24 hours. Once a contract is signed, the money is sent via overnight mail or direct deposit.

If you are in a pending personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, use our financial strength to wage your legal battle in order to wait for the best settlement possible. Contact Lawsuit Financial today.

Lawsuit Alleges Delayed Diagnosis Led to Hemorrhagic Stroke

There are far too many situations where medical negligence on the part of a healthcare professional causes harm to the patient. When this happens the injured person can file a lawsuit to recover compensation for his/her loss. Unfortunately waiting for a settlement can take months or years. During this time, the plaintiff may run out of cash, but that doesn’t mean the bills stop coming in. For those who simply cannot endure a long litigation process seeking lawsuit funding is a viable option.

A Putnam County, West Virginia woman filed a lawsuit alleging that her doctor misdiagnosed stroke symptoms, leaving her with paralysis and brain damage. According to the complaint, the plaintiff sought treatment from Dr. Christopher Bowman on May 9, 2014 due to headaches and nausea. Dr. Bowman allegedly told the plaintiff, who has a history of hypertension, that she was suffering from a virus and that she would feel better soon. The lawsuit claims that when the woman started feeling dizzy, she texted Bowman who allegedly said, again, that he was not concerned and still insisted she would feel better in a few days. However, after suffering weakness to her right side, the plaintiff went to the emergency room of CAMC Teays Valley Hospital where she was diagnosed with a hemorrhagic stroke. As a result of her illness, the plaintiff claims she suffered right-sided paralysis, speech and language impairment, and cognitive defects, some of which may be permanent.

The lawsuit names Dr. Bowman and his employer, Dunbar Medical Associates PLLC, as defendants in the medical malpractice case. The plaintiff seeks a jury trial and an undisclosed amount in damages.

Filing a medical malpractice lawsuit can hold the wrongdoer(s) accountable, but hospitals and other healthcare institutions often have abundant resources, and can pressure plaintiffs to accept a low settlement by prolonging the litigation process. A better option is to secure a lawsuit cash advance.

Lawsuit Financial represents plaintiffs, such as this woman, left devastated by negligent doctors or other medical professionals. Our legal funding services help combat mounting bills, whether medical expenses, mortgage payments or daily household expenses, during a potentially long legal battle. Though we don’t require a credit check, employment history, or collateral of any kind, the best part about our legal finance services is that repayment is only made if, and when, a settlement is reached. If the lawsuit is unsuccessful, repayment of the cash advance is completely waived.

If you have been seriously injured due to a medical misdiagnosis or other medical error, have attorney representation and a pending lawsuit and wish to apply for lawsuit funding, complete our online application or call our office at 1-877-377-7848. After receiving a funding application, we will request case documentation from your attorney so we can evaluate the merits of the case. Approvals are often times made within 24 hours. Once approved, we can wire transfer or overnight mail the funds. It is just that easy to obtain lawsuit funding when you need it most, so why wait?

Family Seeks Answers After Toddler Is Suffocated Under Bean Bag Chair At Day Care

A Utah mother should be planning her son’s 2nd birthday party. Instead, she is planning his funeral after the toddler suffocated at a daycare center.

West Jordan Police said the little boy was underneath a bean bag chair when a daycare employee accidentally sat on it while reading a book to the rest of the children. When the child was discovered, he wasn’t breathing. CPR was performed and he was rushed to a local children’s hospital, where he died a few hours later. An investigation is underway; no charges have yet been filed.

The mother is seeking answers. How could the child go unnoticed? How could the employee not feel the toddler under the chair?

While the police investigation is underway, the child’s family may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Though no amount of money can ever replace a lost loved one, especially a young child who will never attend school, play sports, get married, raise a family, and grow old, a lawsuit is a means for the family to receive compensate for their loss. It will also help ensure that an incident like this does not happen to another child. At this facility, it may mean stricter guidelines, more training of employees and better oversight into the daily operations.

According to news reports, the child center has been in violation twice in the last five years – one for lack of supervising children on their patio and another for having a hole in the fence where a child could easily escape.

An attorney for this family can seek compensation for the pain and suffering of the little boy prior to death; medical expenses prior to death; funeral and burial expenses; and loss of love, care, companionship, guidance, and nurturing that the victim would have provided. Once the lawsuit is filed, if they do not have the financial means to withstand a lengthy litigation, they may want to consider lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance that may help this grief-stricken family focus on healing, rather than calculating expenses or worrying about how they will pay their bills. The money can be used for just about anything, but is commonly used to pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses and other pressing bills while their attorney seeks appropriate justice.

Applying for lawsuit funding is easy online or by phone, and takes less than five minutes. The only qualification is a strong case. We charge no upfront fees and no monthly payments; there are no credit checks or employment verifications. After case-evaluation, if approved for a lawsuit cash advance, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, if the case is lost, we relinquish the cash advance; the plaintiff owes nothing.

If you are interested in receiving a lawsuit cash advance against your wrongful death case, contact Lawsuit Financial today and learn how we can empower you to pursue your case to get the maximum settlement you deserve.

Distracted Driver Took The Life Of A Motorcyclist On Labor Day

Everyone will agree that multi-tasking has become a way of life; behind the wheel is no exception. Distracted driving has become so common that not a day goes by where we don’t see hundreds of motorists doing everything but what they should – drive. The result is a staggering number of serious and fatal auto accidents. Even the most experienced drivers can cause a crash if they take their eyes off the road, if only for a few seconds.

A motorcyclist was killed on Labor Day after he was struck by a pick-up truck near St. Clair Missouri.

The man was heading west on Highway 30 when the driver of a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado crossed the center line and struck the motorcycle, ejecting the man. A truck then hit the motorcycle from behind. Debris from the crash struck the windshield of another vehicle. The motorcyclist was transported by air ambulance to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. No other injuries were reported. Police said the driver of the Silverado was distracted at the time of the crash.

Holding a distracted driver accountable for a crash involves collecting evidence such as photos of the crash site, cell phone records and witness statements. It is important to consult an experienced auto accident attorney who understands the necessary steps and thus recover compensation for damages.

After a lawsuit has been filed, the plaintiff may wish to inquire about litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance while waiting for an equitable verdict or a fair settlement.

Litigation funding is a viable choice for cash-strapped plaintiffs who have no means of paying medical and/or funeral expenses and other expenses resulting from the accident, let alone cover daily household needs. Applicants do not need to have good credit or be employed because funding is based solely on the strength of the case.

Once a funding application is received, we will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation in order to determine the merits of the case and the cash advance we can provide. Typically, funding decisions are made in 24 – 48 hours, and the money is sent via direct deposit or overnight mail.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident caused by a distracted driver, your personal funds are running out, and your case has not settled, you may want to consider litigation funding. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning you owe us nothing until your attorney recovers a settlement on your behalf. If you lose your case, you owe us nothing.

Litigation funding is also available for other cases, such as medical malpractice, slip and falls, premise liability and defective and dangerous products, to name a few. Call Lawsuit Financial today for a free, no-obligation consultation. We look forward helping you make the best financial decisions to help your case.

Nursing Home Negligence Lawsuit Filed After Patient Falls To His Death From a Fifth-Floor Window

Nursing home neglect refers to the failure of a nursing home to provide the care and attention that its residents deserve. When that happens, victims or their loved ones may seek to hold the nursing home liable for harm.

The administrator of a deceased man’s estate has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Glenbridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre, Ltd., alleging negligence caused the patient’s death. According to the claim, due to inadequate supervision the man fell to his death from a fifth-floor window. The suit also states that the nursing home was negligent by allowing the window fixture to remain in a hazardous condition. The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $50,000.

If you see signs of abuse or neglect of your loved one in a nursing home setting, you may have the right to take legal action. Filing a lawsuit against a nursing home can be the most effective way to seek just compensation, hold the nursing home accountable for the damage and, ultimately, protect others from suffering similar nursing home abuse or neglect in the future. But, filing a nursing home lawsuit is a complex process that can easily take two or more years to reach a settlement. This can often lead families to become financially distressed.

After a lawsuit has been filed by an experienced attorney, if you are in need of quick cash, consider lawsuit funding. A lawsuit cash advance can give you the cash you need now to regain control and get your life back on track. Use it for medical expenses, living expenses, funeral expenses or any other financial need; there are no restrictions on how the money is used. Because lawsuit funding is not a traditional loan, factors such as employment history and financial standing are not required. The only concern is the validity of the lawsuit and the likelihood of its success. The best part is that with lawsuit funding comes there is no risk to you - we are repaid only if you win the case. You keep the cash advance if your case is lost, no questions asked.

Our application process consists of 4 easy steps.

1. Complete our quick and easy online application or call our office toll free 1-877-377- 7848.
2. We contact your attorney to obtain basic case information.

Airborne Boat Critically Injures Two In Hit-and-Run Crash

Two New Jersey men are fighting for their lives after being critically injured by a hit-and-run ski boat that slammed into the rear of their Bayliner on Greenwood Lake.

The men and their wives were en route to the Sportsmans Marina to dock when the Bayliner was struck at the stern about 8:30 p.m. It is believed they were hit from behind by a ski boat from behind which then went airborne, flew over the length of the 18-foot Bayliner and struck the men in the head before roaring off. Despite the damage to the Bayliner, the women were able to render immediate aid to their husbands and navigate the boat back to the dock. The men were flown by police helicopter to an area trauma center where they remain in critical condition. Their wives were treated for non-life threatening injuries. The New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau is seeking the public's assistance in identifying the operator of a hit-and-run boat. Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Shane Diehl of the Carteret Station at 732-541-0491.

Why would the negligent driver of the boat flee the scene? Since it was the Labor Day weekend, alcohol may have been a factor. Drinking while boating is one of the leading causes of serious or fatal boating accidents; it is just as dangerous as drinking while driving an automobile. Other accidents on our waters are the result of operator inattention, an inexperienced boater, reckless handling, and speeding.

When any boating accident happens due to the negligence of another, the victims should consult an experienced boating accident attorney. A boat accident lawsuit can be complex and take years to settle. During this time, victims may face financial hardship and be left with medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and out of pocket expenses. One way to ease the financial burden during the litigation process is with a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding allows victims time to wait for a just settlement rather than be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar just because of financial difficulties. Applying for funding takes less than five minutes and cases can be approved in less than 48 hours. Why? Because we fund strictly on the strength of the case. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Our funding is also provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning the cash advance is only repaid if the plaintiff successfully wins the case. If the case is lost, there is no repayment requirement.

Never settle a valuable case too early for too little; consult a lawsuit funding expert first. Let lawsuit funding give you financial peace before your case settles. If you are in a pending boating accident lawsuit and need cash to help you bridge the gap between the time of your accident and your ultimate settlement, Lawsuit Financial is the one to call. We provide free case evaluations, and for approved cases, cash in hand within 48 hours.

Lawsuit Funding Removes Financial Worries While You Wait For The Settlement You Deserve

An auto accident is one of the scariest things that can happen to anyone. Countless people become victims due to the negligence of another driver. The reason may be driving under the influence, texting while driving, chatting with passengers, fatigue or a host of other distractions. Whatever the case, victims should avoid accepting a settlement before speaking to an experienced attorney. Insurance companies and responsible parties only seek to protect their own bottom line. Their sole job is to get the victim to accept the smallest possible settlement. In most cases, the settlement won’t be enough to cover all current and future needs.

An attorney will discuss the facts, protect your rights and get you the maximum compensation for damages and losses. Unfortunately, the more complicated the personal injury lawsuit, the longer it usually takes to reach a fair settlement. What do you do in the meantime? How will the medical bills get paid? Where will you get the money to replace your car? For many, income and savings can’t keep up with the bills especially for those unable to work. Faced with significant financial hardship, some plaintiffs will seek help from family or friends, while others will be forced to settle for less than deserved just to avoid financial ruin. A more viable solution may be lawsuit funding.

Unless you have been in this situation, you may not be familiar with such terms as lawsuit funding, litigation funding, pre-settlement funding, lawsuit loan and legal financing. So what is it and how does it work?

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against a pending lawsuit to help plaintiffs avoid foreclosure, car repossession, and mounting late fees on credit cards. By obtaining lawsuit funding, plaintiffs can alleviate the financial stress without compromising the compensation rightfully deserved. Simply put, lawsuit funding helps relieve the financial pressures and reduce the need to accept a settlement too early for too little. When plaintiffs aren’t stressing about their finances, it’s easier to focus on recovering from the injuries while their attorney focuses on obtaining a fair settlement.

Although it may appear to be like a bank loan, lawsuit funding is actually a non-recourse cash advance against your expected settlement. Poor credit? No worries! No job? No worries! No money to make monthly payments? No worries! The only condition to receive funding is attorney representation and a case with merit. After receiving an application and basic documentation, our underwriters review the case. If the application is approved, funding can usually be provided within 24 – 48 hours via direct deposit or overnight mail. Best of all, repayment is conditioned on winning the case. Nothing is paid until you win your case at which time repayment is made from the settlement. If for any reason you fail to win your lawsuit, you would owe nothing; the cash advance does not have to be repaid.

If you are currently involved in an auto accident lawsuit and struggling to pay your bills or put food on the table, lawsuit funding may be a viable option. The first step is to complete a no-cost, no-obligation application or call Lawsuit Financial to speak with an experienced funding representative. We would be happy to provide a free, no-obligation consultation. We look forward to providing the best legal funding advice to help you make a smart decision about your case.

Lawsuit Financial Corporation Give Plaintiffs The Means To Say “Yes” To Waiting For Justice

Litigation funding has become increasingly more popular in the United States as thousands of plaintiffs seek a means to ease the financial burden and increase access to justice. Due to the growing demand, attorneys routinely recommend Lawsuit Financial. Without our help, many plaintiffs would be forced to settle for less than they deserve.

I was injured in an auto accident because of another motorist who was texting while driving. My injuries kept me out of work for six months. When I did go back, it was only part-time for another six months until I could completely recover. My wife worked part-time and we have three kids. There just wasn’t enough money to pay all the bills, especially my medical expenses. My attorney suggested we look into getting a lawsuit cash advance. I vaguely recall seeing ads on TV, but he suggested I call Mark Bello at Lawsuit Financial. Mr. Bello’s staff was great from the first call until my case settled. They took my application over the phone and within 48 hours, I was paying my stack of bills. I know without the help of Lawsuit Financial, I would have been forced to settle for much less than my attorney was able to achieve. I highly recommend Lawsuit Financial. ~ T.P.

Generally, there are two types of funding options:
• Pre-settlement litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance prior to case settlement.
• Post-settlement litigation funding is provided after case settlement, but before the plaintiff is paid.

What we require:
• A strong case.
• Attorney representation on a contingency basis

What we don’t require:
• Application fees.
• Monthly payments.
• Credit checks.
• Employment history.
• Repayment of the case is lost.

After a plaintiff applies for funding, we will request supporting case documents, such as an accident report, from the plaintiff’s attorney. Upon reviewing the pertinent information, if the case is approved, a contract will be prepared and sent to the plaintiff and his/her attorney to sign. Funds can be sent via overnight mail or direct deposit in as little as 24 hours.

Litigation Funding Makes A Positive Impact On Drunk Driving Auto Accident Lawsuits

Drunk drivers are one of the most common causes of high speed car crashes, leading to serious and fatal injuries. Victims may have legal recourse through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, therefore it is important to consult an experienced attorney. If you are searching for lawsuit funding against a DUI accident, contact Lawsuit Financial Corporation.

Three people are dead and three others injured following a single vehicle crash in Raleigh, NC. A police report said that the driver was under the influence of alcohol when he went off the roadway, over-corrected and went off the other side of the road before hitting a light pole, street sign and tree. The vehicle overturned and two people were ejected. It was determined that the driver was traveling at 50 mph in a 35 mph zone. Investigators said seven people were inside the vehicle at the time of the crash. A relative of one of the injured passengers said the group was coming home from a nightclub when the crash occurred.

The drunk driver has been charged with three counts of aggravated felony death by motor vehicle, three counts of aggravated serious injury by motor vehicle and driving while impaired. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has also determined that he is in the country illegally. Court records show the driver was convicted of DWI in 2011, when he was 17. He also was convicted twice of driving while license revoked – impaired, most recently in April.

The injured victims and family members of the deceased may be entitled to recover expenses related to medical treatment, funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering and more. They may also be entitled to compensation from the nightclub if it is determined that the driver was serviced drinks despite being intoxicated and left in an intoxicated state.

An experienced personal injury or wrongful death attorney is the best way to help these victims get the compensation they deserve. Most likely, the lengthy legal process will hinder them from paying the bills associated with the crash; it may even be a struggle to pay ordinary living expenses. In times like this, auto accident litigation funding is a good option. In fact, it might be the only option to avoid an early settlement for less than full case value.

Pre-settlement litigation funding is an emergency cash advance to qualified plaintiffs that helps them get out of debt and keep their financial obligations current while waiting for a trial or settlement. Victims are eligible for funding once they have attorney representation. Simply complete an online application and we do the rest. There are no credit checks, no employment verification and no upfront fees. If approved, the money can arrive within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment of the cash advance is made once the case settles, but if the funded plaintiff loses, the lawsuit cash advance is theirs to keep -- no strings attached.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to a drunk driver, are in a pending lawsuit, and facing serious financial challenges while waiting for a settlement, contact Lawsuit Financial to ease your financial burden and give your attorney the time needed to obtain full value in your case. 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.

Worker Dies In Vat of Molasses. Cause of Death Under Investigation

An investigation is ongoing in the death of a 23-year-old Michigan man who died in a molasses tank last month.

Robert Herweyer was helping to pump out a 12-foot-tall vat at Agri-Science Technologies in Saugatuck, Michigan when the molasses level became too low to reach the pump-out valve. Herweyer put on a pair of wading boots and a safety mask so he could descend into the tank via a forklift and straps to adjust the valve. According to a co-worker, Herweyer grabbed the straps to start the climb back out of the tank, but suddenly stopped. After calling to Herweyer and receiving no response, co-workers sought help. It is believed Herweyer had been submerged in the molasses for at least four minutes before his boss was able to cut through the tank and pull him out. Although the sheriff’s department hasn’t yet issued an official cause of death, a doctor said Herweyer’s had syrup in his lungs and died from drowning. The man leaves behind a wife and soon-to-be first child.

It is unclear what happened, but authorities believe fumes or a medical episode may have played a part in his death. Michigan’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating to make sure there were no workplace violations, but it may take months to reach a conclusion.

If it is determined that the cause was due in part, or whole, to negligence or defective parts or equipment, it will be imperative to put the proper measures in place so such a tragedy does not happen again.

Incidents such as this are dealt with under the auspices of workers’ compensation law. That’s the general rule of thumb, but there are exceptions. One of those is if the accident was due to a defective piece of equipment or negligence on the part of someone other than the employer. If that is the case in this fatal accident, the victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If immediate cash flow is issue that makes it difficult to pay the bills while waiting for a fair settlement, she may want to consider lawsuit funding.

It is very easy to apply for lawsuit funding, either by phone or online. After receiving a funding application, we will review the case and make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. If approved, the lawsuit cash advance can be used for whatever the funded client chooses, but typically is used to pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, household bills, mortgage, or simply to put food on the table. Unlike a bank loan, there are no monthly payments or credit checks, and employment is not important. And, if the case is lost, the lawsuit cash advance is excused.

Hospital Disputes Jury Decision in Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Thousands of patients are injured or killed yearly due to medical negligence. When victims seek justice it usually takes years. Even when a settlement is reached, the fight for justice may not be over. Hospitals will, often times, deny the allegations and file an appeal.

HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley may file an appeal in a $4.6 million wrongful death verdict by a state Supreme Court jury.

In February 2011, a 63-year-old man went to the emergency room of Kingston Hospital, currently known as the HealthAlliance Hospital Broadway Campus, with severe pains. He was admitted and doctors performed preliminary blood tests. Despite the doctors suspecting pancreatitis, additional testing was not performed, “and they completely failed to diagnose a more dangerous condition: sepsis,” according to the family’s attorney. Less than 36 hours after being admitted to the hospital, the man was dead as a result of a severe infection. He left behind a wife and son.

The family chose to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. The case went before a New York Supreme Court jury which found both doctors and the Kingston Hospital responsible for the man’s death. The hospital and primary care doctor were each found 33 percent responsible. The gastroenterologist, who was called in as a consultant on the man’s condition was found 34 percent responsible. In response to the verdict, HealthAlliance said: “We disagree with the jury’s verdict and will make a motion to set it aside. We also reserve the option to file an appeal.”

A medical mistake took a man’s life; a family was stripped of a loved one. Five years later the case settled, but the fight may continue. Why? Rather than admitting fault and learning from their mistakes, the hospital will most likely drag this family through more pain and suffering.
This family’s financial situation is unknown, but they most likely would be good candidates for lawsuit funding. Even if they did not seek the help from a legal funding company, if they face financial burdens during an appeal, lawsuit funding can still be a valuable resource.

Applying for a non-recourse lawsuit cash advance is quite simple. Just complete a one-page application and we do the rest. Once case documentation is reviewed and the strength of the case determined, approvals can be available within 24 - 48 hours. No money is owed until the case successfully settles, at which time repayment is made from the proceeds of the case. The most attractive part about lawsuit funding is that if the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

If you have pending a medical malpractice lawsuit or won your case, but now faced with an appeal, you may be eligible for medical malpractice lawsuit funding. For a free consultation or to apply, complete the online contact form or contact Lawsuit Financial directly at 1- 877-377-7848.

Lawsuit Financial Helps Auto Accident Victims Pay the Bills While Seeking Justice

The most common accidents in the United States involves automobiles. They can range from a simple fender bender with little or no injuries, to catastrophic crashes that lead to serious or disabling injuries and, sometimes, death. In addition to the physical pain, long-term disability or wrongful deaths resulting from an auto accident both have the potential to exhaust all of your financial resources.

Filing a lawsuit and waiting out the litigation process can take months, even years. But, everyday expenses do not stop because you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one. Years ago, most innocent victims struggled to avoid foreclosure on their home and to pay day-to-day living expenses. With limited options to pay even their basic needs, they would max out credit cards or settle for far too little just to pay the bills. Nowadays, there is another option – and, it is risk-free!

Lawsuit Financial can offer a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding, against your pending claim. With the money, you can pay the mortgage, medical expenses, funeral expenses, groceries, and any other bills and expenses. We do not limit how the cash advance is used.

Lawsuit funding is not a “lawsuit loan” as it is often called; you only repay the cash advance, with interest, if and when you successfully settles your case. If your case is lost, the cash advance is waived in its entirety. Additionally, there are no monthly payments or upfront fees, not credit checks, or employment verification.

While auto accident lawsuit funding will not win a case, it can be a financial godsend for plaintiffs when needed the most. If you have been injured in an auto accident due to someone else’s negligence, are tired of waiting for your lawsuit to settle, and need cash now, apply for auto accident lawsuit funding with Lawsuit Financial. If your case qualifies, we can have cash in your hands within 24 – 48 hours.

Devastating DUI Crash in Texas Kills Husband and Wife’s Unborn Son

Despite increased awareness, as well as stricter laws and criminal penalties for DUI, many motorists continue to drink and drive. In a matter of seconds, lives are changed forever.

On August 2, a Mexican-born aspiring carpenter and his pregnant wife were on their way home from the immigration office where they learned that his application was approved for U.S citizenship. The woman was behind the wheel of their Toyota Corolla when a car coming in the opposite direction crossed the center line and slammed into their vehicle, killing her husband. She was taken to the hospital in serious condition, which included a brain bleed. Two days after the crash, and after nearly 24 hours of induced labor, the woman delivered her stillborn son. Since leaving the hospital, she hasn’t had time to process the death of her husband and unborn child; she has been working in funeral arrangements.

Witnesses told police they saw a woman in a bikini rolling a bottle of alcohol under a parked car after the crash. When police spoke to the 21-year-old woman, she admitted to consuming beer and liquor while floating the Guadalupe River at Texas State Tubes prior to the crash. She has since been charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault.

While there is nothing the surviving victim can do to bring back her husband and child, she should consult an experienced attorney to understand her rights. It is not just about the compensation for her loss. A wrongful death lawsuit sends a powerful message – drunk driving is a crime and wrongdoers will be punished.

Pursuing a lawsuit takes a long time. Even if a case seems clear cut, compensation may be months, even years away. How does a seriously injured accident victim support him/herself while waiting for the case to settle? The answer is, of course, lawsuit funding.

Taking the financial pressure off the plaintiff to settle a valuable case too early for too little is what we do at Lawsuit Financial. A lawsuit cash advance can assist the plaintiff in paying funeral and other death related expenses, medical bills, and any ongoing expenses such as the mortgage or car payments. What makes lawsuit funding better than a bank loan is the fact that most cases are approved within 48 hours, there are no monthly payments and if the case is lost, there is no obligation to repay the advance. All that is needed to be considered for lawsuit funding is attorney representation (on a contingent basis) and a strong case.

If you have been injured in an auto accident due to a driver under the influence and are seeking compensation for your injuries, you may qualify for drunk driving lawsuit funding. Complete our onlne contact form or call our office toll-free at 1 877-377-7848 to get started.

Two People Injured After Woman Crashes Into Panera Bread

Two pedals, inches apart, one for gas and the other for brakes.

An elderly Michigan woman apparently mistook the gas pedal for the brake, jumped the curb and crashed into a Panera Bread restaurant. About 15 – 20 patrons were inside the restaurant at the time. Two people suffered minor leg injuries from flying shards of glass. A building inspector determined there was no major structural damage to the restaurant, but the café and bakery are closed until the glass is replaced. The crash is still under investigation.

Fortunately, the injuries in this incident were minor, but that is not always the case. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 16,000 preventable crashes occur every year due to drivers mistakenly hitting the gas instead of the brake pedal.

Gas pedal accidents became newsworthy in 2003 when an 86-year-old driver mistakenly stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake then panicked, plowing into an open-air market in Santa Monica, Calif. Ten people were killed and 63 injured. A Colorado woman stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake, killing an 18-year-old who became engulfed in flames after being pinned beneath a toppled gas pump. A man was pinned between two vehicles when a truck driver apparently mistook the gas pedal for the brake. The victim died the following day.

Wrongful death lawsuits are not only expensive to litigate, but emotionally and financially costly to family members. For those struggling financially, litigation funding can help.

Lawsuit Financial, a leader in the legal finance industry, can provide a lawsuit cash advance once the victims have filed a lawsuit with an experienced attorney. By assisting with some of the mounting bills and expenses, the plaintiff can wait for justice to be served. Because we provide funding based solely on case strength, there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Once we have some basic case documentation, we can approve and fund a case in as little as 24 hours. Best of all, there are no monthly payments; we are only repaid after the case settles. If our funded client loses the case, we completely waive repayment.

If you are a plaintiff in a pending wrongful death lawsuit and need financial assistance, apply for litigation funding by completing our online application or call our office toll free at 1-877-377-7848. We can also provide a free, no obligation consultation.

Lawsuit Financial Provides Financial Support for Personal Injury Lawsuit Victims

If you were suddenly injured in an auto accident and unable to work, would you have a means to pay the bills – mortgage, rent, car payments, tuition, medical expenses, utility bills, groceries? How long would that money last? What if you filed a personal injury lawsuit, but the insurance company offered an inadequate settlement offer or was denying the claim, thus, causing your case to drag on indefinitely? Do you know how you would stay financially afloat? Most people never give this scenario a thought until they are confronted with the situation.

Until you are the victim of someone else’s negligence, you may not realize that insurance companies use deny, delay and defend tactics to persuade you to settle for less than you deserve. They know the longer the stall, the more likely you will suffer financially to the point of accepting their offer. Few people know there is a viable way out of this situation.

With pre-settlement lawsuit funding, a plaintiff doesn’t have to wait months or years for a case to settle, risking debt or a bad credit rating. If you have attorney representation and a strong case, you already qualify. The only information required for funding approval is information relevant to your accident and the scope of your injuries. There are no credit checks or employment verification, and you are never at any risk financially because repayment is only made after your case settles. If for any reason your case is lost, the cash advance is completely waived. The money can be spent anyway you choose with no restrictions. In most cases, funds can be provided within 24 – 48 hours of approval. It really is that easy!

Anyone in a pending lawsuit, represented by an attorney, and in need of fast cash before their case settles is eligible to apply for pre-settlement funding. Call Lawsuit Financial or complete our online contact form to get started.

Couple Sues Hospital and Anesthesia Group for Daughter’s Brain Injury

Thousands of preventable medical mistakes occur every year. Determining whether a medical treatment error could have been prevented requires experienced medical malpractice attorneys. Waiting for a settlement may take years. During this time, there are still medical bills to pay on top of ordinary household expenses. Plaintiffs may quickly run out of cash. This is a time when lawsuit funding can be a powerful tool.

A couple has filed a medical negligence lawsuit against a Sioux Falls hospital and an anesthesia company alleging surgery left their daughter with a severe brain injury.

According to the suit, an ENT doctor recommended a surgery that is done to treat certain airway complications. The child's airway became obstructed after surgery and she was unable to breathe for about 20 minutes, causing permanent brain damage. On August 11, 2014, she was transferred from Sanford Health to Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Nebraska, where she spent the next seven months. The complaint states that the injury left the child with impairments that will leave her “totally dependent on others for care.” She cannot speak and is fed exclusively through a feeding tube. The lawsuit filed against Sanford and Anesthesia Physicians seeks in excess of $75,000. The anesthesia group says it “lacked sufficient information” to completely respond to the claim. Sanford Health has yet to respond to the lawsuit.

Obviously, this family would rather turn back the clock than sue medical professionals. Yet, it is important to seek justice no matter how long it takes.

Going through a lawsuit is certainly not easy. The emotional, mental and physical stress is enough to deal with; the last thing this family needs to worry about is how to keep up with financial obligations. That’s where Lawsuit Financial comes in. We provide lawsuit funding to help plaintiffs withstand the litigation process and still be able to pay the bills. With the bills paid, the family can focus on their daughter’s needs.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance provided risk-free. This money is not provided against an asset; rather, it is given against the potential settlement of the case. Credit checks and employment verification are not necessary to obtaining a lawsuit cash advance. After completing an online application, one of our professional staff members will contact your attorney for case documentation. Cash can be available in under 48 hours.

Repayment is made only if you win the case. The fee is a certain percentage of the amount of your advance, and both are paid directly from the proceeds of the case. If you lose your case, you are not obligated to repay the money.

If you have fallen prey to medical malpractice, Lawsuit Financial is here to help. We just might have the financial mechanism you need to fight for your rights.

Man Hit by Car While Mowing Lawn Dies of Injuries

Motorists have the obligation and duty to operate their vehicle with care. If the driver is negligent and causes an accident, they should be held liable for damages including medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages. If finances are stretched during a pending lawsuit, plaintiffs may be able to secure litigation funding.

A 50-year-old Tennessee man was mowing his lawn when a woman drove off the road and struck him. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. The negligent driver was taken into custody after she gave police a false name at the scene. Charges are pending.

Although it may be difficult for the family to think about taking legal action following the loss of a loved one(s), a wrongful death lawsuit is the only way to hold the negligent party. In addition to funeral costs, hospital bills, 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.

Securing auto accident litigation funding could help alleviate some of the financial strain during a pending wrongful death lawsuit.

Litigation funding differs from traditional loans in several ways.
• There are no monthly payments. In fact, repayment is only made if, and when, a settlement is reached.
• If the case is lost, the cash advance does not need to be repaid.
• There is no need for a credit check.
• There is no need for employment verification.
• Once a client is approved for funding, the cash advance can be sent overnight mail or direct deposit within 24 – 48 hours.
• There are absolutely no restrictions on how the money is used.

Have you or a loved one been involved in auto accident where another party is at fault? Do you have an attorney? Are you suing for damages? Consider auto accident litigation funding to help you with finances until your settlement is received.

Lawsuit Financial is one of the country's most experienced providers of litigation funding services. We work directly with your attorney to gather needed information to process your funding request quickly, typically within 48 hours. Don’t settle your valuable case for less than you deserve. Apply online or call our office for a free review of your situation and to learn more about our funding services.

Semi Driver Admits To Taking Eyes of Road Causing Crash That Left Young Child with a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury

The consequences of inattention may cause an automobile accident and result in serious personal injuries, even death.

A five-year-old boy suffered a traumatic brain injury after a semi rear-ended his family’s vehicle on July 5, 2016 on U.S. 31 in Oceana County, Michigan. The driver of the semi admitted that he briefly looking away from the road, and when he returned his attention, traffic had slowed for road construction. He attempted to slow but hit a Mazda, then the family’s Subaru. The collision forced both vehicles into the median. The driver of the Mazda suffered serious injuries. The five people in the Subaru, a couple and their three young children, suffered minor to serious injuries with the 5-year-old suffering the most severe injuries. The family was traveling between destinations on a summer vacation when the crash occurred. The semi-truck driver suffered minor injuries; charges against him are pending until all injuries have stabilized, according to Lt. Craig Mast of the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office.

The child’s brain injury has been described as 'catastrophic'. He has been weaned off most medication, breathing on his own and slowly recovering, but is still unable to be transferred to a rehab hospital, before going home. The family is from the Port Huron area and struggling not only with all the medical costs, but all the expenses while trying to stay with the child. Additionally, the little boy will most likely need care and medical follow-up for the rest of his life.

The family will, most likely, pursue a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for the child’s long-term care. Even though the truck driver admitted to taking his eyes off the road, traumatic brain injuries are complex and a large amount of time may elapse before the true extent of the injury is known. For this reason, litigation may drag on for years. While the family awaits a settlement or verdict, they may become further in debt as the bills and expenses related to the care and treatment for their son continues. Litigation funding may be the perfect solution for this family to bridge any financial gap until the case settles.

At Lawsuit Financial, we provide risk-free funding (sometimes called a “lawsuit loan"). To obtain a lawsuit cash advance in the quickest and easiest manner, please complete our online form. One of our agents will contact you immediately and start the process. We usually can process and provide funding within 24 hours of receiving necessary documentation from your attorney. The money can be used immediately to pay medical bills, mortgage, rent, car payment, or other household expenses. We don’t charge upfront fees or monthly payments; good credit and employment are not important. Best of all, funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning that if your case does not win you are not obligated to pay back the cash advance.

If you or someone you love is suffering from a brain injury, waiting for a lawsuit settlement, and strapped for cash, don’t hesitate to apply for litigation funding online or call our office toll free, at 1-877-377-SUIT for further assistance.

Devastating DUI Crash in Fayetteville NC Kills Five

Accidents that are caused by an impaired driver can often result in catastrophic and sometimes fatal injuries. Injured victims and families of the deceased may want to seek compensation for their losses. Civil lawsuits can be successful even if the at-fault driver is acquitted of criminal charges.

A 22-year-old man is in custody nearly a month after he caused a three-vehicle crash in Fayetteville, NC, killing five people.

The driver of a 2000 Ford Mustang was speeding when he lost control, crossed the center line and slammed into two other vehicles. The Mustang hit a Kia broadside, became airborne, and then hit a Crown Victoria on the driver’s side before landing on its roof. Police determined the driver had alcohol in his system at the time of the crash. Among the deceased were four passengers in the Mustang and the driver of the Kia. The driver of the Mustang and a rear-seat passenger were transported to the hospital with serious injuries. Blood drawn from the driver at the hospital tested positive for opiates and cannabis, according to police. The driver of the Crown Victoria was treated at the hospital and released.

Once released from the hospital, the negligent driver was charged with five counts of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of felony resulting in serious injury by motor vehicle, driving while impaired, reckless endangerment of the public, driving left of center, and unsafe tires.

When an impaired driver is found liable for injuries or death, even if the victim(s) was an occupant in the same vehicle, that person (or their loved ones) may still have the ability to file a personal injury (or wrongful death claim) against the liable driver. An attorney can help victims understand their rights and negotiate a favorable settlement that covers the cost of medical care, rehabilitation, funeral expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Auto accident lawsuits have the potential to exhaust all financial resources, especially claims that take months, even years to resolve. To stay financially afloat, auto accident litigation funding can be a valuable option. In fact, it might be the only option to avoid an early settlement for less than full case value.

Litigation funding is a cash advance to help victims deal with important bills and expenses while waiting to achieve appropriate justice. Eligibility is based on a strong case and attorney representation. For victims meeting those criteria, the next step is to complete a one-page funding application. Then, Lawsuit Financial will request necessary documentation to determine case strength and if, and how much, funding can be provided. We can typically approve a case for funding within 24 – 48 hours because we do not required a credit check or employment verification. Furthermore, repayment is made only after the case successfully settles. If our funded client loses, we waive the repayment in its entirety.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a car crash caused by a driver under the influence, are in a pending, attorney-represented lawsuit, and don’t have the financial ability to wait out the litigation process, contact Lawsuit Financial. Our experienced and professional funding team is happy to answer your questions and help you understand the lawsuit funding process. If you do not have legal representation, we would be happy to provide one in your area from our network of attorneys all over the country. This is a no cost, no-obligation service to you.

Why You Might Need Lawsuit Funding After An Auto Accident

An auto accident can leave you with serious injuries and prevent you from returning to work. It can also leave you struggling financially especially if the case does not settle quickly.

Most plaintiffs do not have the deep pockets of big corporations and insurance companies. They can’t afford to wait forever for a settlement without feeling some financial stress. Savings may dwindle to nothing and home foreclosure may be imminent. Accepting an early settlement is very tempting especially as litigation drags on.

While it is nearly impossible to plan for a tragic incident, injury victims should never be forced to accept minimal settlements because of pressing personal financial needs. Instead, victims can stay financially afloat while waiting for a fair case settlement with a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance for personal injury plaintiffs based purely on the strength of the lawsuit. The money is meant to help plaintiffs with medical expenses, car payments, mortgage payments, and other necessities, although there are no restriction as to how the money is used.

In order to be considered for funding, a plaintiff must complete a free, online application or call our office. We will review the application along with case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney to determine if the case has merit; employment status and credit history are irrelevant. Upon approval, funds can be deposited directly into the plaintiff’s bank account or sent via overnight mail within 24- 48 hours. There are no monthly payments to be made; we are only repaid once the case successfully settles. Should the plaintiff lose the case, repayment is completely waived. It really is this simple!

If you are in a personal injury lawsuit and feeling the financial crunch, don’t become desperate and accept a settlement that is less than case value. Lawsuit funding has helped thousands of plaintiffs overcome financial pressures and it may be able to help you, too. Click here to apply or call Lawsuit Financial toll-free at 877-377-7848.

Family Awarded $37.9 Million In Crash With Tractor-Trailer On Icy Texas Highway

On February 28, the driver of the tractor-trailer lost control, slid sideways across the icy Interstate, and hit a guardrail before coming to a stop with his trailer blocking every lane. Several minutes later, the driver of a Chevy Astro van slammed into the trailer of the semi. EMS pronounced him dead at the scene. The driver of the 18-wheeler was not injured.

Although investigators said icy roads were to blame for the collision, the family of the deceased filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the truck driver and his employer, O’Reilly Auto Parts, alleging that the driver of the semi was driving too fast for ice conditions, was on his phone at the time of the crash and failed to place reflective cones in front of the 18-wheeler.

During trial, the plaintiff’s attorney argued reflective tape on the trailer would have made it visible from 1,200 feet away. The driving record of the truck driver was also put under questioning. In the three years before the fatal crash, the trucker was in three accidents involving O'Reilly property and two roadway crashes. He also received two speeding tickets and a "How's My Driving?" complaint. "This was a case about corporate responsibility for not identifying unsafe drivers and taking them off the roadway," said the plaintiff’s attorney. "Known unsafe 18-wheeler drivers expose us all to unnecessary risk of serious injury and death." The jury awarded $37.9 million to the victim’s family, assigning 40 percent of the responsibility for man's death to the truck driver and 60 percent of the responsibility to O'Reilly Auto Parts.

Many victims often wonder who is to blame after such an incident. Families deserve to know whether they can recover damages for the loss of a loved one. An experienced auto accident attorney can help answer these questions and more. If the accident was caused by another driver's negligence, the victims may be entitled to compensation.

Trucking accidents cause thousands of catastrophic and devastating injuries and deaths each year, resulting in lawsuits which can often take an extended time to settle. Under such situations, victims may be faced with mounting medical bills, mortgage payments, household bills, or even worse – funeral expenses. The financial strain can not only seriously impacts one’s life, it can also impact the case. A financially desperate plaintiff is not in a favorable position regarding settlement negotiations and will often times settle for too little, too soon. But, what other choice does a cash-strapped plaintiff have?

Lawsuit Financial is an auto accident lawsuit funding specialist that understands how hard it is to stay financially afloat during a lengthy litigation process. With this non-recourse cash advance from us, plaintiffs can take care of their financial obligations while giving their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance awarded based solely on the merits of the case, not on credit-worthiness or employment history verification. Once we receive a request for funding, we work directly with the plaintiff’s attorney to gather necessary information to review the funding request as quickly as possible. Most times, we can have a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance, meaning that there are no payments until the case settles. If the case is lost, the cash advance does not have to be repaid.

If you have suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one in an auto accident, do not resolve your case for less than full value because of pressing financial need. Contact Lawsuit Financial and learn how we might ease your short-term financial burden.

Two Dead After Wrong-Way Driver Crash On Route 53 In Rolling Meadows

Two men were killed in a wrong-way crash on Route 53 just south of Euclid Avenue in northwest suburban Rolling Meadows, according to Illinois State Police.

The driver of a Toyota Scion was heading south on in the northbound lanes when he struck a Chevrolet Impala. Continuing in the wrong direction, he then collided with a Toyota Sienna - an American Taxi minivan. The taxi driver, who was not on duty at the time, and the wrong-way driver were killed. The condition of others involved in the accident is still unknown. Investigators have not said whether alcohol was a factor in the crash, but a witness said he saw the driver of the Scion traveling at what appeared to be nearly 100 mph just before the crash. The investigation is ongoing.

When someone is injured or killed due to the negligence of someone else, legal action by the injured, or family of a deceased loved one, can be taken. This process oftentimes requires an experienced attorney to obtain full and just compensations for damages.

Once the lawsuit is filed, plaintiffs that are in need of immediate cash can apply for litigation funding. Litigation funding is a 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. The funding process begins with completing a one-page application. Next, Lawsuit Financial will request case documentation to determine the strength of the case; there are no application fees, credit checks or employment verification. If the case is approved for a lawsuit cash advance, the money can arrive within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment is only made once the case is won and the settlement received. If the case is lost, the plaintiff is under no obligation to repay the cash advance.

For any victim of an auto accident who have retained an attorney, filed a lawsuit, and in need of financial assistance, we encourage you to consider litigation funding before settling for less than full case value or struggling to the point of losing your home and credit standing.

One Dead, Several Injured In Multi-Vehicle Crash Near Construction Zone

Construction is a necessary part of keeping roads safe, but construction sites can become just as dangerous as a bad road. Construction zone accidents typically occur because of excessive speeds, drunken or impaired driving or because people are simply not paying attention.

At least one person was killed and several others injured in a six-vehicle crash that forced state police to shut down the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 in the Montgomery, New York.
A Dodge truck had slowed in a construction zone when it was struck from behind by a speeding tractor-trailer, according to police. The force of impact caused the Dodge truck to rollover multiple times before landing in the center median. The semi continued on, rear-ending a SUV and van. That impact pushed both vehicles underneath a second tractor-trailer. The deceased was a passenger in the van. Dozens of firefighters were called upon to assist with the mangled wreckage. An investigation is ongoing.

If you suffered a serious injury or lost a loved one in a work zone or construction zone accident, an experienced attorney can make a difference in your case. If you don't have an attorney, Lawsuit Financial can help you find one, within 24 hours, in all 50 states. Once you retain an attorney, the process of collecting evidence and trying to get your life back to normal begins. But, many lawsuits take months, even years to resolve.

Personal injuries and wrongful deaths resulting from an auto accident both have the potential to exhaust financial resources. Everyday expenses, compounded with medical expenses, funeral expenses, and lost wages, do not stop because you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one. For many families, auto accident lawsuit funding is not just a good option; it is the only option.

Lawsuit Financial is dedicated to helping plaintiffs fight for fair compensation and justice by offering a non-recourse cash advance against a pending lawsuit. This means that funding is completely contingent upon the outcome of the case; repayment is made once the case is won and compensation received.

One of our experienced representatives will answer any questions and help you understand the lawsuit funding process. And remember, there is no payments until your case successfully settles.

Police are Searching for a Hit-and-Run Driver Who Caused a Fatal Crash in Queens

A family of four was waiting at a stop sign to make a left turn when the driver of a black BMW SUV plowed into their Toyota at more than 50 mph, ejecting a mother and child from the car. The 41-year-old woman was killed in the crash; police found her pinned under the Toyota. Her 9-year-old daughter was critically injured. Witnesses said the driver stopped long enough for them to see that he was drunk before he took off. One witness said the impact sounded like a bomb blast. Police are still searching for the hit-and-run driver.

Following an auto accident, the at-fault driver can be held accountable for the victim’s damages – medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income, property damage, pain and suffering and other related expenses. But, when the driver flees the scene and is not apprehended, the recovery process becomes more complicated. In cases such as this, if the victim has uninsured motorist coverage, he/she may be able to pursue compensation from their own insurance provider.

Whether the hit-and-run driver is found or not, it is important that the family of the deceased contacts an experienced attorney to understand their rights to recovering compensation. Hit-and-run legal claims can be difficult to resolve, often taking months, even years, to reach a settlement. Insurance companies are more interested in dragging out the case than doing what is right. How does a personal injury victim cope with his/her present financial situation?

When finances are an issue, a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding may be helpful. To obtain funding is quite simple. Complete an online one-page application or call our office. Once we receive your application, we will contact your attorney for the basics of your case – who was at fault, what type of injuries did you sustain in the accident, etc. If a case is approved for funding, a contract is prepared and signed. Then, we will overnight mail a check or direct deposit the cash into the client’s bank account. The cash advance will only be repaid when the case successfully settles; if lost, the repayment is waived. There are no restrictions on the money’s use.

When money is tight during your pending personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, one solution is to lawsuit funding. Call Lawsuit Financial today to learn more.

Litigation Funding Helps Families Seek Justice in Auto-Pedestrian Fatalities

When a pedestrian is struck by several thousand pounds of metal and glass, even a low-speed collision carries a high potential for serious or catastrophic injury, or even death.

On June 25, two teens were struck and killed by the driver of a Jeep Wrangler, while riding skateboards around 10 p.m. along South Carolina highway. The driver fled the scene, then filed a false police report claiming the vehicle was stolen. Deputies later learned from witnesses that the man was driving in a reckless manner shortly before the incident and that he struck the teens after attempting to pass another vehicle. The drive has been arrested without bond; the investigation is ongoing.

The legal process provides resources to hold negligent drivers accountable and help victims obtain compensation for damages such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life and pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can ensure that the family's rights are protected and decide the best course of action in recovering the maximum.

Unfortunately, the legal process can drag on for years. Although the family may eventually receive a financial settlement, they may experience a financial shortfall during the litigation process that could lead to significant financial hardship. In situations like this, litigation funding can help ease the financial burden until a settlement or verdict is achieved.

Litigation funding is a non-recourse cash advance to remove the financial and allow the plaintiff to continue with the litigation and receive the compensation and justice deserved. The only eligibility requirements for funding are attorney representation and a strong case. There are no application fees, credit checks, employment history verifications, or monthly payments. Once an application is completed and case documentation is received, our underwriters will review the case. If approved for funding, we can wire transfer or overnight mail the cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, repayment is only made when a settlement is reached. If the case is lost, repayment is completely excused.

If you were seriously injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian-auto accident and awaiting justice, don’t let your bills wait and ruin your credit. To obtain litigation funding in the quickest and easiest manner, complete our brief online application. We will contact you immediately and begin the process. If you have questions or would like a free, no-obligation consultation, don’t hesitate to contact one of our experienced funding representatives, toll-free at 877-377-7848.

Lawsuit Funding Helps Prevent Insurance Companies from Devaluing a Claim

Just before daybreak last Labor Day, Amanda DiGirolomo and Bryan Botti of Baltimore were returning from the Made in America Music Festival when they were struck by a taxicab driver. According to reports, the cab driver was traveling at more than 50 mph in a 25 mph zone when he struck the pedestrians in the crosswalk. DiGirolomo body was launched 100 feet. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Botti was taken by ambulance to an area hospital where he died a half-hour later.

The tragedy has led to two wrongful death lawsuits against the cab driver, Jacob Gabbay, the owner of the cab, as well as six members of the Gabbay family. The lawsuits claim that the cab driver is a “ticking time bomb.” He allegedly has been issued multiple traffic citations in the past and is the subject of seven civil lawsuits, one which was filed by the Gabbays’ own Germantown Cab Company to recover nearly $2,000 in fines. The lawsuits claim that the Gabbay family operates three fleets of unsafe taxicabs that are subject to more than 50 complaints with state regulators. “The Gabbay Family Enterprise has consistently been cited for safety violations by the Pennsylvania Utility Commission, as well as the Philadelphia Parking Authority concerning maintenance of its taxicab fleet and the reckless management and supervision of its taxicab drivers,” said an attorney for one of the plaintiffs. “Despite numerous warnings, complaints, citations and extensive fines, the Gabbay Family Enterprise has continuously failed to adhere to the PUC/PPA regulations in obvious and reckless disregard for the safety of the public.” The Gabbay family’s cabs have also been repeatedly cited for operating with unlicensed drivers or drivers who have suspended licenses, as well as unlicensed drivers with criminal records. The lawsuit also alleges that the Gabbay Family Enterprise is grossly underinsured, and purposely structured in a way that fraudulently conceals the company’ assets. Brett Berman, attorney for the Gabbay’s both as individuals as well as their companies, said the claim is merely an attempt to pierce the corporate veil.

Pedestrian accidents are not always cut and dry. Sometimes the insurance company will dispute liability even though the driver is clearly at fault. Although an experienced attorney can fight for the justice that is deserved, cases like this can take years. Often times, plaintiffs do not have the financial resources to withstand a lengthy litigation process, but backing down only devalues the claim. At times like this, plaintiffs may look to lawsuit funding to help them to cope with unexpected expenses.

While the family of the deceased may eventually receive a financial settlement to compensate them for their loss, they may experience a shortfall in their finances that could lead to a significant financial hardship. Lawsuit funding is a cash advance offered to litigants in exchange for a portion of the future proceeds of their case. There is no credit check, employment verification, or restrictions on how the money is used and it is only repaid once the claim is settled. Because repayment is contingent upon a successful recovery, if the lawsuit is lost, there is no obligation on the part of the plaintiff to repay the cash advance.

The application process takes less than five minutes online or by phone. If the case is approved for funding, we can direct deposit or overnight mail the money within 24 - 48 hours. If you need financial help during a pending personal injury claim, contact Lawsuit Financial today. Let us ease your financial burden while you are waiting for your lawsuit to settle.

Police Chase Ends in Fatal Head-on Crash

One person died and two were injured after their vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer being pursued by police.

The fatal crash began when the out-of-state driver of a Freightliner was driving erratically and struck a vehicle. The uninjured driver of the vehicle tried to stop him, but the truck driver sped off. Moments later, an off-duty police officer spotted the trucker and attempted to pull him over. During the encounter, the officer fired a single shot, but the truck driver continued at a high rate of speed, striking several parked cars and moving vehicles. He then drove through a police barricade, leading police to fire more shots. About a half-mile away, the truck driver hit another vehicle, killing the driver and injuring two passengers. Police said more than a dozen vehicles were damaged during the chase. Multiple charges are pending against the truck driver, who was hospitalized for non-life threatening injuries. The fatal crash and the police response to the incident remain under investigation while a mourning family is left wondering why.

The injured victims and the family of the deceased may wish to pursue a lawsuit against the negligent truck driver. They may also pursue a negligence claim against the Union County police. The first step in doing so is to contact an experienced auto accident attorney. Litigation is expensive and time consuming; cases like this can take years to settle. Once a lawsuit is filed, litigation funding can help with financial obligations without risk.

Litigation funding is a cash advance against a pending lawsuit that can be obtain without the need for a credit check or employment verification. Furthermore, there are no monthly payments. When the case settles, the cash advance with interest is repaid. But, if the case is lost, repayment is not required. Request for funding applications can be approved as quickly as 24 hours. Once a contract is signed, the money is sent via overnight mail or direct deposit.

If you are in a pending personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, use our financial strength to wage your legal battle in order to wait for the best settlement possible. Contact Lawsuit Financial today.

Lawsuit Financial Explains Lawsuit Funding

In many personal injury cases the financial, physical and emotional damages are overwhelming. The filing of a lawsuits is often followed by a complicated and lengthy litigation process. Regardless of any legal claim, life goes on; bills must be paid. But, how does a victim make ends meet, especially if injuries have led to the inability to work? How does a victim survive, financially, to do battle with a well-financed insurance company with all the time and money in the world?

Plaintiffs with a strong case and attorney representation can seek financial relief with lawsuit funding. As a pioneer in the legal finance industry, Lawsuit Financial understands that lack of financial resources can force a good case into premature settlement and deny an injured party of the compensation deserved. One way to avoid this to obtain a lawsuit cash advance.

While beneficial for many plaintiffs, lawsuit funding can be an expensive method of obtaining emergency cash. Therefore, it should only be considered as a last resort. Make sure you know the right questions to ask and what to expect so you can keep potentially prohibitive costs to a minimum.

What is lawsuit funding?
Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance to help plaintiffs pay their bills, compensate for lost wages, and assist in daily expenses while on a long, and sometimes, bumpy road to resolution.

At what point is lawsuit funding the best option?
Do you have pressing financial issues? What are they? Lawsuit Financial Corporation often finds that the client is facing eviction or foreclosure or needs a car to get to work. Daily living expenses and medical bills are other important items that can be secured with a lawsuit cash advance. If you are not facing these types of financial situations or can tap into other sources of revenue, such as savings, lawsuit funding is probably not the most viable option.

Are their upfront costs, monthly payments, or other "out-of-pocket" expenses?
An ethical, professional lawsuit funding company provides the cash you need without any upfront or monthly costs to the plaintiff. Cases are approved on the strength of the case only, so there is no need for a credit check or employment verification.

How does a plaintiff qualify for funding?
The only qualifications for funding is a case with merit. A case with merit involves a plaintiff with a serious injury, a strong case against the defendant, and an attorney working on a contingency basis.

What are the repayment terms?
Most lawsuit funding companies provide funding to clients on a non-recourse basis. This means that repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case. When the case settles, the funding company is repaid from the settlement proceeds. If the case fails, so does the repayment; the client gets to keep the cash advance without obligation to repay.

How much funding can I receive?
Lawsuit Financial recommends clients receive no more than 10% of the predicted value of the case. We also recommend receiving smaller cash advances, over time, rather than receiving a larger, lump sum advance immediately, because doing so will save money.

What happens if my settlement is lower than expected?
When a case settles, for valid reasons that were not apparent at the time of funding, the lawsuit finance company should adjust its principal and profit return to comfortably fit into the settled value of the case. If a funding company will not promise you, in advance, to adjust rates for compromised, unexpected results, consider another company.

How long is the application process?
The process is quick and easy, consisting of a one-page application. Once received, Lawsuit Financial will review the application and pertinent documents, and make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. Once approved, we will provide a funding agreement for signature. The plaintiff’s attorney is required to acknowledge the agreement and agree to withhold money from the settlement to repay the advance, if the case is successful. Once we received the signed contract, we will then wire transfer or overnight mail the funds.

Why choose Lawsuit Financial?
The key element to handling lawsuit funding transactions successfully is an expert understanding of the litigation process and what plaintiffs and attorneys go through before they are in a position to resolve a case. Lawsuit Financial is an attorney owned and operated full service legal finance company recognized by attorneys nationwide as a preferred choice for legal funding services. Mark Bello, CEO and General Counsel has over 17 years’ experience in the legal finance industry and over 39 years’ experience evaluating plaintiff personal injury cases, the primary case type for these investments.

Five Family Members killed After Van Collides With Amtrak Train

Five people were killed when their van was hit by a train. According to the Colorado State Patrol, the driver of the van failed to yield the right of way to the train. The van was not stopped on the tracks. The driver and four passengers were killed, including three children. A fourth child was airlifted to the hospital in serious condition. No train crew members of passengers were injured. The family was on their way to church at the time of the crash.

There has been six accidents between trains and vehicles at the same crossing since 1986, according to Federal Railroad Administration records. In July 2010, a 55-year-old man was killed and in October of the same year, two people were injured at the crossing when the drivers attempted to cross the tracks.

The rural crossing is marked by just four crossbuck signs, although it was identified back in late 2013 as part of a railroad improvement project to receive flashers, gates and a warning system. The proposal is still waiting approval from the state Public Utilities Commission.

Although the driver failed to yield, a railroad has a duty to keep its crossing reasonably safe. A railroad can be liable for failing to make sure adequate signage was posted, failing to evaluate crossings or install lights and automatic gates, or if there are inadequate sight lines at its crossings.

Injury or death can occur at railroad crossings where the railroad company chooses not to install signals or crossing gates and unsuspecting drivers are unable to see an on-coming train in adequate time to clear the tracks, or when drivers are unable to hear the train because the train crew fails to exercise reasonable care to sound its horn. Holding the railroad accountable, not only compensates victims for damages, but allows the problem to become publicly known so that hopefully changes will be made and lives saved.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a railroad crossing accident, and you would like to learn about your rights, contact an experienced attorney. If it is determined you have a valid claim, but you are finding it difficult to make ends meet, contact Lawsuit Financial.

We are a strategic lawsuit funding company that provides financial support to plaintiffs in need of immediate cash while awaiting a settlement or other case resolution. Our lawsuit cash advance can be used to pay medical or funeral expenses, as well as any outstanding bills that must be paid.

The only requirement for a litigation funding is a pending lawsuit. We will evaluate your application, and if your case has merit, provide lawsuit funding in less than 48 hours. Lawsuit Financial requires no application fee, monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. Best of all, a lawsuit cash advance with us is on a non-recourse basis meaning that if you lose your case, you are not obligated to repay the cash advance.

Call or visit us online if you are currently seeking litigation funding but don’t have the financial staying power to see your case to the end. Lawsuit Financial is here to help the innocent victims wait for justice.

Alcohol and Speed Factors in Fatal New York Crash

A driver lost control of his vehicle, jumped the curb and slammed into a fire hydrant, killing his passenger and seriously injuring himself. The impact was so powerful that the vehicle was nearly torn in half and the fire hydrant wound up in the middle of the car. Both men were trapped inside and had to be removed by rescuers. They were rushed to the hospital, but doctors were unable to save the passenger. He leaves behind a four-year-old daughter. The driver was arrested on charges of vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated. Police said speed was also a factor.

Catastrophic accidents are life changing. Family members will be faced with a number of decisions including the family’s financial future. Although it may be difficult for family members to think about taking legal action following the loss of loved ones, a wrongful death lawsuit may be the only way to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions and for the family to seek compensation for damages.

These types of cases can take months, even years to settle. Often times, victims will struggle not only with day-to-day living expenses, but with medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and other expenses as a result of the accident. As the case drags on, plaintiffs may consider cutting their losses and take whatever compensation is offered. A better option is to call Lawsuit Financial.

“Our goal at Lawsuit Financial is to help those families who are involved in a lawsuit, can no longer pay for the necessities of life, and who may not qualify for a traditional loan," states attorney Mark Bello, owner and founder of Lawsuit Financial.

Lawsuit funding is cash provided in advance of an expected settlement. Unlike a bank loan, personal credit has no bearing on our funding decision, and applicants don’t need to be employed. We fund strictly on case strength. Lawsuit funding is also risk-free. If the case is resolved successfully, repayment of principal and profit owed is made. If the plaintiff loses the case, we excuse the advance.

Lawsuit Financial is one of the country's most experienced providers of lawsuit funding services. We work directly with your attorney to gather needed information to process your funding request quickly, typically within 48 hours.

Victims of Hit-and-Run Accident Can Ease Financial Burdens with Lawsuit Funding

Two teens reportedly slipped out of school unnoticed, stole an unlocked vehicle and started cruising the streets of Camden, New Jersey. At some point, the car was reported stolen. Before police caught the boys, the 16-year-old driver hit a 53-year-old pedestrian and sped off. The teens abandoned the stolen vehicle at a nearby median, fled the scene on foot and at least one teen returned to school. The female pedestrian was transported to the hospital where she died the next day.

The hit-and-run driver has since been arrested and charged with first-degree aggravated manslaughter among other charges. While the investigation is ongoing, the family of the victim should contact an attorney immediately to understand their rights and whether they can file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Last Saturday, a 35-year-old was riding his bicycle when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver. The driver went to the police station about an hour later reporting that he thought he had hit someone with his car. The 68-year-old driver was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. The bicyclist remains in critical condition.

Often in situations like these, it takes time for information to be gathered and for investigation results to be compiled. The fact that a guilty driver is charged does little to pay the bills for injured parties or the family of the deceased. Victims may be entitled to file a lawsuit against the hit-and-run driver to recover compensation for medical treatment, funeral expenses, loss of earnings and past and future pain and suffering resulting from the injury. An experienced attorney can ensure that the right course of action is taken and the victim is fully compensated. The litigation process however, takes time, often years. In the meantime, plaintiffs still have to pay bills and meet their financial obligations. Finances are even tighter in the event a lost loved one was the sole breadwinner. At times like this, plaintiffs may look to lawsuit funding to help them to cope with unexpected expenses.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance offered to litigants in exchange for a portion of the future proceeds of their case. There is no credit check, employment verification, or restrictions on how the money is used and it is only repaid once the claim is settled. Because repayment is contingent upon a successful recovery, if the lawsuit is lost, there is no obligation on the part of the plaintiff to repay the cash advance.

The application process takes less than five minutes online or by phone. If the case is approved for funding, we can direct deposit or overnight mail the money within 24 - 48 hours. If you need financial help during a pending personal injury claim, contact Lawsuit Financial today. Let us ease your financial burden while you are waiting for your lawsuit to settle.

Lawsuit Funding Assists Auto Accident Victims Involved in Contentious Litigation

You get in your car, buckle up, start the engine, and hit the road. You most likely don’t give any thought to being in an auto accident because frankly – you are a careful driver. While the odds are low that an attentive driver will cause an accident, others on the road may not be so careful. Distracted driving and driving under the influence account for the majority of crashes that even the most cautious drivers may not be able to avoid. At freeway speeds or under adverse weather conditions, these effects can be even more pronounced. Although you may be lucky enough to escape with little or no injuries and minor auto repairs, when the accident causes serious injuries, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit to recover damages.

Retaining an attorney and filing a lawsuit is just the beginning. Compensation sought could be months, even years away. For a seriously injured or disabled person, one not working as a result of an accident, the financial impact can be devastating. A victim is at a significant disadvantage against a powerful, well-financed insurance company that deliberately drags its feet to make the injured victim become desperate to resolve the case for less than full case value. How does a plaintiff avoid such tactics, yet pay the bills and put food on the table? The answer is often lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding, often times termed “lawsuit loan”, can give you “fast cash” to pay pressing bills and get your life back on track while waiting for your future lawsuit settlement. It can also help level the playing field and give your attorney time to negotiate the highest settlement you deserve. All that is needed to be eligible for funding is a strong case and attorney representation. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Once we receive an application and applicable case documentation, a funding decision can be made within 24 – 48 hours. Lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning that repayment is totally contingent on the outcome of your case. We are repaid once your case settles, but if you lose, the cash advance is completely waived.

If you have sustained significant injuries in an accident and need financial assistance, our legal funding services might be just what you need. Call our office or complete our online application to get started. You really have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, with a lawsuit cash advance from Lawsuit Financial.

Injured Customer Files Lawsuit After Fire Engine Crashes into Dairy Queen

Three people were injured last January when a fire engine slammed into a North Texas Dairy Queen. Officials said the truck it left the road for an unknown reason, crashed into an outdoor patio and through a portion of the restaurant, collapsing part of the front wall before coming to a stop on the other side of the restaurant. The truck driver, a restaurant employee working the drive-thru window, and a customer in the drive-thru line suffered non-life threatening injuries. The truck was not being driven by a firefighter at the time of the crash and was not headed to an emergency call. It had just been serviced by Siddons-Martin Emergency Group and the company was returning the vehicle to the fire station when the crash occurred.

An attorney for the injured DQ customer recently filed a personal injury lawsuit claiming negligence against Siddons-Martin Emergency Group and their employee. According to court documents, the driver allegedly lost control of the fire engine, crossed a grassy median, ran into a guard rail, crossed oncoming lanes, struck an exit sign, hit an embankment and went airborne before crashing into the restaurant and two cars sitting in the drive-through lane. The plaintiff was the driver in the first vehicle and was injured from the impact and bricks flying through the drivers-side window. The lawsuit alleges that the truck driver was traveling at an excessive rate of speed, failed to apply his brakes in a timely manner and was under the influence of a foreign substance. The lawsuit also claims negligence on the part of Siddons-Martin stating that the company had a duty to adequately train and supervise its employees, but failed to do so. The plaintiff is seeking unspecified damages.

Some may wonder why the plaintiff is able to sue Siddons-Martin; why is the company responsible for the driver’s negligence? The answer lies in a legal concept vicarious liability) that holds an employer responsible for the harm caused by its employee, as long as the employee was acting within the scope of his/her employment at the time of the accident. Some state laws require employers to indemnify employees for civil damages, verdicts or judgments assessed against an employee. Even a casual personal call while on company business may result in employer liability.

Determining what constitutes an act committed “within the scope of employment” can be a difficult task. One way to minimize any financial impact is with a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding. Lawsuit funding is a financial tool that gives plaintiffs the staying power to wait for a fair settlement. It may be the only financial lifeline to paying medical expenses and other important bills, especially if unable to return to work. This no-risk cash advance is based solely on the merits of the case; credit history and employment do not matter. Best of all, because it is a non-recourse cash advance, we are only repaid once the case settles. No repayment is required if our client loses the case. If the case is approved for funding, the cash advance can be sent via direct deposit or wire transfer within 24 - 48 hours.

If you or a family member have been directly affected by an auto accident due to the negligence of someone else and struggling financially during a pending lawsuit, call Lawsuit Financial or complete an online application for a free case funding evaluation.

Elderly Pedestrian Killed by Bus She was Riding Moments after Exiting the Vehicle

San Francisco police are investigating a fatal accident in which a pedestrian using a walker was hit by a paratransit bus.

The deceased 86-year-old woman was crossing the street after exiting the bus. A witness said it appeared that the woman stopped in front of the bus to check for cars passing by in the next lane. As she took a step back to avoid the traffic, the bus driver accelerated and struck the woman, dragging her nearly 30 feet across the intersection. She was trapped beneath the bus and was pronounced dead at the scene.

It was unclear if the woman was crossing against the traffic light when she was run over. She was on her way to a meeting hosted by Senior and Disability Action, a group that is sponsoring town hall gatherings regarding safety on San Francisco streets. Police hope video from surveillance cameras at a nearby church will help in their investigation.

San Francisco Paratransit is a city run service contracted by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency for people with disabilities. The driver is a veteran operator, but it was his first time on the route. He has been cooperating with police.

Was the driver distracted or not paying close enough attention to notice the woman stopped in front of the bus? Was she crossing outside of a crosswalk or against traffic control signals? Was there a bus mechanical failure or defect? While all the details of this pedestrian-auto accident won’t be known until the investigation is complete, witnesses said that the intersection has always been dangerous.

No matter how the investigation concludes, the family of the deceased woman may be entitled to compensation and should seek legal advice from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. A wrongful death attorney can ensure that the family's rights are protected, help determine who may be at fault, and decide the best course of action in recovering the maximum compensation for funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages. Even if the pedestrian is found partially at fault, the family can still be entitled to compensation, but it would be reduced according to the amount of responsibility the pedestrian had in the accident.

While waiting out the litigation process, the family can avoid a shortfall in finances that could lead to a significant financial hardship, with the help of a lawsuit cash advance known as lawsuit funding. Obtaining funding is quick and easy because unlike a traditional loan, the cash advance is provided completely on case strength. There is no credit check, employment verification or collateral necessary. Best of all, repayment is only made when a settlement is reached. If the case is lost, our repayment is lost.

Applying for funding takes less than five minutes online or by phone. Once we received the application and supporting documentation, a funding decision can be made within 24 – 48 hours. If approved, the money would arrive within 24-48 hours by check or wire transfer.
If you were in a pedestrian-auto accident and awaiting justice, don’t let outstanding bills ruin your credit. Call Lawsuit Financial or visit us online for more information or to complete and application. Where else can you obtain a “risk-free lawsuit loan”?

When Discouraged With Your Financial Situation During A Pending Lawsuit, Consider Lawsuit Funding

Auto accidents occur every day, causing emotional, physical, and financial hardship. Although you may have a strong case, an auto accident lawsuit can take months, even years, before a settlement is reached. Financial pressures can put a tremendous strain on families, which insurance companies know and will use deny, delay, and defend tactics to preserve their own profits rather than doing what is right for the innocent victim. Rather than settling for pennies on the dollar just to pay the bills, you could apply for lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding, commonly referred to as a “lawsuit loan,” is a non-recourse cash advance to help plaintiffs pay the bills while their case proceeds through the legal process rather than being forced to settle for less than you deserve because you are in a financial bind. Unlike a bank loan, there is no employment or income verification and credit score doesn’t matter because funding is based solely on the strength of the case. There are also no monthly payments. We are repaid once your case successfully settles. If the case is lost, repayment is waived in its entirety.

If you have been seriously injured in an auto accident due to the negligence of someone else and have filed a personal injury lawsuit, before becoming discouraged about your financial situation, consider lawsuit funding. Our streamlined application process begins with an online application or by calling our office. Next, we will contact your attorney and review case documents to determine eligibility for funding. If approved, funds can be available in as little as 24 hours. When you know your bills and expenses are covered, it is much easier to fight for justice to be served.

NTSB Concludes Ice on Wings Downed Plane that Killed Woman and Two Children in Home

Airplane accidents are rare, but when they happen they usually cause serious injuries or death. Litigation in these cases typically take years. The last thing victims should worry about is their finances. For that reason, Lawsuit Financial provides pre-settlement lawsuit funding.

The NTSB concluded last week that the tragic deaths of a Gaithersburg, Maryland mother and her two young sons could have been avoided if the pilot of a private plane had flipped on his de-icer before he attempted to land on a chilly morning in December 2014. The woman was trying to protect her sons with her own body after the plane crashed into their home and erupted into flames. The pilot and his two passengers also died when the plane stalled as it approached the runway at Montgomery County Airpark. The NTSB report said that “had the ice protection been activated the pilot would have received an aural warning of impending stall about 20 seconds earlier.”

The incident was the second time the pilot had crashed while attempting to land at the Gaithersburg airport, despite being a highly qualified pilot, with 4,500 hours logged in control of an aircraft. He was certified as a commercial pilot and as a flight instructor. The first crash was also determined to be due to pilot error.

Several lawsuits have been filed in the aftermath of this tragic crash. The widow of the woman and two young boys has filed a lawsuit against the pilot’s family and the maker of the jet. Owners of two homes that were damaged in the crash have also filed lawsuits seeking to recoup losses they incurred when smoke, fire and parts of the aircraft wrecked their homes.

The widow of one of the deceased passengers aboard the plane alleges the pilot was negligent for failing to operate the aircraft in a safe and competent manner. The suit names the pilot’s estate, as well as a host of other companies involved in the manufacturing and maintenance of the aircraft as defendants, alleging the plane was "defective and unreasonably dangerous." Sage Aviation LLC, owned the plane and had liability insurance coverage, but it won't be enough to pay out all the claims resulting from the crash, according to her attorney.

It has already been a year-and-a-half since this tragic crash. Several families have lost loved ones, whiles others suffered serious property damage. One man is living the aftermath of losing his entire family and home. In addition to the grief, these families are undoubtedly suffering financially.

Reckless Driver Crashes into Nine Bicyclists, Killing Five Instantly

Kalamazoo County Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey Getting said that three separate police agencies started receiving phone calls regarding a truck's erratic driving about 30 minutes prior to a crash that killed five bicyclists and seriously injured four others. Officers were attempting to locate the driver of a blue Chevy pick-up truck when the crash occurred. The pick-up truck sustained heavy front-end damage and was disabled after the crash. The driver fled on foot, but found a short time later and taken into police custody. The five deceased bicyclists were pronounced dead at the scene; the injured victims were transported to area hospitals. All victims were adults. The crash remains under investigation.

Drivers who flee the scene of a fatal accident face felony charges. In addition to criminal consequences, families of the deceased victims may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Additionally, those injured can pursue a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. While the grief these families are facing is overwhelming at best, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to determine their rights to recover compensation for medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering endured as a result of this crash.

Once the litigation process is underway, if these families need financial assistance to keep their case alive, lawsuit funding may be a viable solution. Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance to help plaintiffs pay for expenses resulting from injuries sustained or simply to catch up on daily living expenses. This is funding received prior to case settlement without the need for a credit check or employment verification. Additionally, repayment is only made once the case successfully settles. If the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is completely waived. It’s that simple!

Pre-Settlement Lawsuit Funding: An Essential Asset While Waiting for a Product Liability Settlement

We all expect the products we buy to work as intended, but sometimes a flaw in the design or an unintended side effect can result in a faulty, defective product, and innocent people get hurt. When that happens, injured victims can file a product liability lawsuit to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and for pain and suffering. However, these types of personal injury lawsuits are complicated; insurance companies don’t want to pay out on claims. They will drag out the litigation process knowing that most plaintiffs will be faced with mounting medical bills on top of ordinary living expenses. Insurance companies know that cash-strapped plaintiffs will often settle for less than full case value. Lawsuit Financial is here to tell you there is another option.

If you have filed a product liability lawsuit and have attorney representation, you are eligible for pre-settlement lawsuit funding. Lawsuit funding is a cash advance against your pending claim to help you pay bills, purchase a car, put a down payment on a new home or for anything else that you may need; there is no restriction on how you use your money. This removes the financial pressures while allowing your attorney time to achieve full case value.

The application process is quick and easy because we require no upfront fees, no credit checks, no employment verifications and no collateral. All we require is attorney representation and a case with merit. Best of all, our funding is provided risk-free. We are repaid only when the case settles, at which time we are paid back through the case proceeds. If you lose your case, there is no obligation to pay us back. Most often, we can approve contracts and provide the cash advance needed within 24 – 48 hours.

When you are seriously injured, in a pending lawsuit, and have nowhere to turn for financial assistance, you can rely on Lawsuit Financial. Call us today for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Why Do Plaintiffs in a Personal Injury Lawsuit Need Pre-Settlement Lawsuit Funding?

Pre-settlement lawsuit funding, sometimes termed “lawsuit loan” can help seriously injured accident victims who might otherwise have trouble paying medical bills, mortgage payments, car payments, rent, or other living expenses while waiting for their claim to resolve or a settlement to be reached. Even after the case is won, often times it will take months to receive the settlement. Insurance companies and defendants deliberately delay the process; they have all the time and money. A person pursuing a lawsuit who is desperate for immediate cash is not a positive influence during settlement negotiations. The insurance companies knows that the longer they hold out, the more likely a cash-strapped plaintiff will settle too soon for too little.

Lawsuit Financial knows how to level the legal playing field. We will take on your financial burden by providing you a lawsuit cash advance, risk-free. We are only repaid once you settle your case, but if the case is lost, you owe us nothing. Most often, funding can be available within 24 – 48 hours because there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Once you complete a funding application, all we require is information from your attorney to determine the strength of your case.

There really is no better way to obtain risk-free fast cash than by calling the funding experts at Lawsuit Financial, one of the most experienced personal injury funders in the country. Leverage our money today for a better result in your case tomorrow.

Lawsuit Funding: A Practical Option to Overcome a Plaintiff’s Financial Struggles

The law allows plaintiffs who have a legitimate claim to seek damages from those who caused an injury through recklessness or negligence. Unfortunately, one problem with the lawsuit process is that it can take months or years for a victim to see the money. However, medical expenses, credit card bills, and other household expenses must still be paid. By the time a case works its way through the courts, someone unable to work or with limited resources available can face bankruptcy or a ruined credit rating. To avoid this situation, plaintiffs are often left with two choices: accept a less-than-favorable settlement or apply for lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a means of accessing instant cash. It is also provided on a non-recourse basis meaning that the cash advance only needs to be repaid if, and when, a case is won or settled. If the case is lost, the repayment is waived. Once we receive a funding application and important case documentation, Lawsuit Financial will be able to determine if your suit meets our funding guidelines. Funding is based solely on the facts of your case; no credit check or employment verification is required. Once approved, our client can typically receive their lawsuit cash advance within 24 hours via overnight mail or direct deposit.

Don’t be tempted to take a settlement offer just to relieve financial pressure. Contact Lawsuit Financial Corporation and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Tire Separation Likely Cause of Fatal Auto Crashes in Florida

A preliminary investigation shows a front tire malfunction may have caused a fatal single-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 in Titusville, about 40 miles east of Orlando.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), three people died and eight others were injured when an SUV carrying all eleven lost control and rolled over several times. The three deceased girls, all under the age of 18, were pronounced dead at the scene. Six of the eight injured were treated at area hospitals. Among the injured was a child who was ejected over a perimeter fence, and found after rescuers heard the child crying. It is unclear whether or not all occupants were wearing seatbelts.

The crash follows a crash earlier this month in Juniper, Florida in which a woman lost control of her minivan, veered into a concrete barrier and then bounced into the path of an SUV. Four of her children and two other adults died in the crash. Three people died at the scene of the crash, and three others succumbed to their injuries at local hospitals. The driver and her 11-year-old son suffered serious injuries. Several victims were ejected from the vehicle. The FHP believe the crash was caused by a separated tire. It is unclear whether any of the eight passengers in the minivan were wearing seat belts.

Did the tires fail because they were defective? Did the vehicles roll over because of a defective design? Once a tire loses its tread, it can become difficult even for experienced drivers to regain control of the vehicle.

When a tire company creates a defective tire or tire part, it should be held liable for the injuries and deaths that the defects cause. Proving that a defective vehicle part was the cause, or a contributing factor, is often difficult and takes time. It is best to consult with an experienced attorney who can protect your rights and determine if legal action is valid and likely to succeed. An experienced auto accident attorney knows the right questions to ask and has the best legal strategies to hold negligent corporation accountable. But, it won’t be easy as large corporations and their insurance companies will deny, delay, and defend the claim. Such cases often drag on for years. During this time, victims may struggle to pay bills and expenses – medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and ongoing monthly bills, to name a few. One way to minimize the financial impact is to seek a litigation funding.

As a leader in the legal finance industry, Lawsuit Financial knows the effects such a traumatic auto accident can have on a family. We can provide a lawsuit cash advance at no-risk to plaintiffs in a pending claim because we provide fast cash based strictly on the merits of the case. We do not care about employment status, credit score, or personal assets. The process is quite simple. Once you hire an attorney and your lawsuit is underway, complete our online application or call our office. The rest is up to us. We will contact your attorney for necessary case documentation and upon funding approval, you can have cash in hand within 24 – 48 hours. We will wait until your case settles to be repaid from the case proceeds. If your case does not win, you have no personal liability to pay us back. It is that simple!

Call us today for a free, no obligation litigation funding consultation. Your road to financial freedom could start tomorrow.

Lawsuit Funding Helps Cases When An Accident Caused By A Drunk Driver Destroys Your Life

Many auto accidents are the result of a driver being intoxicated; it is a common occurrence nationwide. Victims of a DUI crash may have legal recourse to recover damages through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the person(s) at fault.

A Spring, Texas couple and their 17-year-old son were returning home from a church function when the speeding driver of a Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up truck ran a red light and plowed into their Honda sedan. All three family members were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. After the crash, the driver of the pick-up attempted to flee the scene according to witnesses. It was reported that when deputies arrived, they “could smell a strong odor or alcohol about his person.” Other field tests were administered and the suspect reportedly failed them as well. At the time of the accident, there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest for a prior drunk driving charge. He was also driving on a suspended license.

Although it may be difficult for surviving family members to think about taking legal action following the loss of loved ones, 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, medical bills, 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, which cannot be assigned cash value. The claim may also be filed against bars, restaurants, night clubs and other establishments that serve alcohol to the intoxicated persons.

Such cases can take months, even years to settle. While some people can financially withstand a lengthy legal process, often times, the financial burden is too much for most. Lawsuit funding can provide immediate financial relief and peace of mind.

Lawsuit funding is cash provided in advance of an expected settlement; its main purpose is to assist plaintiffs who are struggling to make ends meet due to injury or death caused by auto accidents. There are just a few benefits of lawsuit funding:
• It is not a loan. If you don’t win your case, you don’t repay the cash advance.
• Unlike a traditional loan, you make no monthly payments.
• Your personal credit has no bearing on our funding decision, and you don’t need to be employed. We fund strictly on case strength.
• You do not need to be employed.

Lawsuit Financial is one of the country's most experienced providers of lawsuit funding services. We work directly with your attorney to gather needed information to process your funding request quickly, typically within 48 hours. Don’t settle your valuable case for less than you deserve. Visit us online or call our office for a free review of your situation and to learn more about our funding services.

Rhode Island Police Officer Dies in Unusual Wrong-Way Crash

Wrong-way crashes on highways are relatively rare, but are often fatal because of the increased force of two vehicles in a head-on crash and because such collisions are usually at a high rate of speed.

Rhode Island State Police said a 24-year-old Jamestown police officer was on his way home from work when his Dodge Charger was struck head-on. According to surveillance video and witnesses the 23-year-old Massachusetts man that caused the crash was driving the right way on I-95, but then suddenly pulled onto the shoulder, made an illegal U-turn and headed in the opposite direction at a high rate of speed. Shortly thereafter, he slammed into the off-duty officer. The reckless driver’s car burst into flames. Firefighters had to put the fire out before using the Jaws of Life to free both men, who were pronounced dead at local hospitals. The crash is under investigation; the surveillance video did not cover the actual crash. Police said there were no signs of drugs or alcohol in the reckless driver’s car, but they are still waiting for toxicology results. According to the man’s mother, he may have been at a graduation party earlier that evening.

The family of the deceased police officer may wish to consult with an attorney to understand their rights to seek compensation for their loss. While a wrong-way accident may seem easy to prove and often settle through negotiations without having to file a lawsuit, there are cases when an insurance company is unreasonable in making a fair offer forcing the victim into a lawsuit. Once a lawsuit is filed, the family may also wish to consider whether auto accident lawsuit funding is necessary to keep them financial stable until their lawsuit is either settled out of court or tried to a conclusion, in court.

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. The process begins with completing a one-page application upon which time the funding company will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for documentation. Funding is based solely on the strength of the lawsuit; there are no credit checks or employment verification. If the request for funding is approved, a contract is executed and cash can be available within 24-48 hours. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles; if the plaintiff loses, repayment is completely waived.

If you are a plaintiff in a pending lawsuit and need fast cash, don’t hesitate to contact Lawsuit Financial at 1-877-377-SUIT. If you do not have an attorney, Lawsuit Financial has 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.

5M Award for Family of Woman Hit and Killed by SMART Bus

In November 2014, Sally LaMay, 37, lost her life after she was hit in a marked crosswalk by a SMART (Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation) bus that was turning on a yellow flashing light. She left behind two teenaged children. The bus driver was subsequently fired, and he died in January 2016.

Earlier this week, a jury awarded the woman’s family $5 million in damages. The family’s attorney, Geoffrey Fieger, said the award reflects the fact that LaMay suffered when she was fatally struck by the bus, an assertion SMART denied. Fieger said that while the defendants admitted that the driver hit the woman, they claimed that she died instantly and did not suffer any pain. It’s unclear if SMART will appeal.

Wrongful death lawsuits allow surviving family members to recover damages from those responsible for their loss, including compensation for the damages suffered by the victim. But, often times, trying to pay the bills during a pending litigation can be too much. Although Lawsuit Financial cannot bring back a loved one, we can help plaintiffs with immediate their financial needs. With a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs obtain the staying power to seek full compensation against their claim.

When you obtain lawsuit funding against a wrongful death lawsuit you are borrowing against the proceeds from your case. Funding is provided on a contingency basis, much like how an attorney is paid. This means you will only be responsible for paying back the advance if you prevail in the suit. Lose your case and the repayment is waived. There is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments; funding is based completely on case strength.

If lost a loved one due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, you may be entitled to compensation. If you are interested in receiving lawsuit funding or post settlement funding against the future recovery of your suit, contact Lawsuit Financial or complete our online application. We will evaluate your case and expected compensation. If your case has merit, we can provide funding typically within 24 – 48 hours.

Jury Awards $1.3 Million In Hip Replacement Surgery Case

Failed hip replacement surgery can cause severe pain, serious injuries, physical impairment, mental anguish, and the need for additional surgery. A failed surgery, whether caused by medical negligence or a defective product, can deprive a patient of the relief that is supposed to come with the procedure. Regardless, of the cause of negligence, a victim can file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Any restitution might help with the financial burdens -- both current and future -- that arise in the aftermath of a botched surgical. But, such claims take significant time and resources to investigate and litigate. Pre-settlement lawsuit funding may be the solution to withstand the lengthy process until just compensation can be received.

In July 2010, a 58-year-old woman suffering from osteoarthritis required a total hip replacement. Surgery to insert a prosthetic hip joint was intended to relieve her chronic pain, but she said the pain actually increased after the procedure. Fourteen months later, she underwent a second surgery to correct the problem.

The woman filed a lawsuit stating that although there was substantial relief after the second surgery, she will suffer long-term effects from mistakes made during the first procedure. She alleged that the first surgeon performed an improper insertion of the prosthesis, and claimed that her pain was due to his negligence. The surgeon blamed the manufacturer, however the jury did not agree and awarded the woman $1.3 million in damages, including $850,000 for past pain and suffering, $400,000 for future pain and suffering and $50,000 to her husband. In 2012, the manufacturer did recall two of the hip replacement components used in the first procedure, but the plaintiff’s attorney asserted that it did not depart from prevailing standards of care.

This case is an example where pre-settlement lawsuit funding may have helped. As a pioneer in the legal finance industry, Lawsuit Financial understands that the lack of financial resources can force a good case into a premature settlement. With a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs can pay their necessary expenses without credit risks or monthly payments. We assume all the risks, so the cash advance is only repaid if our client wins or settles the case. If the case is lost, the repayment is waived; no debt is ever created.

If you need a lawsuit cash advance on your future settlement, complete our online application. One of our experienced representatives will contact your attorney to start the process. We typically can make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours of receiving the necessary paperwork from your attorney. The cash advance can be sent via overnight mail or direct deposit. To learn more about lawsuit funding or see if your case qualifies, contact Lawsuit Financial.

Family Mourns St. Paul Woman Killed In Distracted Driving Crash

Driver distractions are so much a part of lives that we don‘t give them a second thought. Unfortunately, distracted driving accidents can be deadly. Once you, or a loved one, are the fatality -- it’s too late!

In the aftermath of a recent accident, a surviving family member admits she has been a distracted driver. “It’s just like, you never think you would hurt somebody doing that, but it happens,” she said.

Her 31-year-old sister died in what police believe was a distracted driving crash. As the woman’s fiancé slowed to stop for traffic on I-35W in St. Paul, an SUV slammed into them from behind at highway speed. The woman died from brain injuries; her fiancé survived, but also suffered brain injuries. The deceased woman leaves behind a 2-year-old daughter. Police have not provided details as to how the driver was distracted, but said criminal charges are a possibility.

While the deceased in this case was a victim of distracted driving, the message still remains – it is time to we all stop ignoring the facts that distracted driving kills. With more distracted drivers on the road, it is important to practice safety driving precautions. However, sometimes accidents do happen. If you have been injured, or lost a loved one, in an accident involving a distracted driver, contact an experienced attorney to understand your rights. You may be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills, property damage, funeral expenses, lost wages and physical and emotional anguish.

Although a personal injury attorney can help victim's fight for justice, it can take time to obtain the best compensation. Unfortunately, many victims are not in a financial position to wait out the litigation process. If the plaintiff is unemployed or has poor credit, banks will usually not grant a loan. Even if approved for a bank loan, the plaintiff 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. Lawsuit funding allows victims to obtain immediate cash to meet their bills while their case progresses. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full value of your injuries.

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. 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 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 country. 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.

Jury Awards Largest Settlement In County’s History Following Surgery Death Claim

Medical Malpractice is a serious issue and a leading cause of wrongful death, with failure to diagnose being among the most common issues. While you can file a medical malpractice lawsuit for negligence, waiting for a settlement can often take years. The financial and emotional roller coaster of a lawsuit is often equally as painful as the loss. A plaintiff who simply cannot endure a long litigation process with financial repercussions can seek lawsuit funding.

A Peoria, Illinois hospital and two physicians were recently found liable in a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of a woman who died during hysterectomy surgery in March 2013. After a 9-day trial, the jury awarded the plaintiffs over $5 million. If the verdict withstands an appeal, it will be the largest wrongful death verdict in the county’s history.

The lawsuit claimed that the 36-year-old woman bled to death during a robotic-enhanced hysterectomy procedure at Methodist Medical Center in Peoria, Illinois. The suit alleged that the gynecologist, Dr. David Kindred, accidently lacerated an artery and the patient bled internally for approximately two hours before the injury was detected. The blood collected in an area undetected by cameras and sensors used in the surgery. Meanwhile, the anesthesia staff failed to timely diagnose and treat the internal bleeding, despite the presence of deteriorating vital signs in the patient. It wasn’t until the doctors could detect no pulse did Kindred perform a general incision that revealed the cut artery and blood loss. Despite subsequent transfusions and efforts to stem the bleeding, the patient died. She left behind a husband and three children.

Although nothing can ever replace the loss of a loved one, Lawsuit Financial is happy that this family was able to seek justice. While we don’t know their financial situation, this case would have been eligible for lawsuit funding. A lawsuit cash advance would have ensured that their expenses were covered until the case reached a settlement. It can also be a benefit if the defendants file an appeal, dragging out the case even longer.

Lawsuit funding 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. Repayment is contingent upon litigation outcome. Had the plaintiffs in this case applied for, and received, a lawsuit cash advance and lost the case, we would not require repayment. That is because we assume all the risks when funding clients. The same applies if the family receives lawsuit funding during an appeal process. If the case is lost on appeal, repayment of the cash advance would be completely waived.

If you have lost a loved one due to a medical professional’s the failure diagnosis, 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. Our litigation funding professionals will evaluate your wrongful death lawsuit funding and can typically provide the funds you need within 24 – 48 hours of case evaluation.

Lawsuits Filed Against Oklahoma Natural Gas After Home Explosion

Two separate lawsuits have been filed against Oklahoma Natural Gas (ONG) alleging negligence following a home gas explosion in January. The explosion damaged more than 50 homes, ranging from minor cosmetic issues to structural problems that require demolition. ONG reported that the explosion was due to poor workmanship on a weld seam in the 1980s-era pipe. The investigation found that a 3½-inch crack in a polyethylene pipe and a lack of fusion in a weld seam led to the blast. The gas escaped the main and went underground, where it entered the home.

One lawsuit was filed by a man who claims that his house exploded because ONG failed to inspect, maintain and remove a dangerous condition from the home. The suit states that crews came out to check on a gas leak on Friday, January 1 then left, saying they would be back to fix it on Monday. The lawsuit also claims the utility was negligent for failing to warn residents of the danger, failing to remove the dangerous condition and for creating a hazard. The explosion leveled his home in the middle of the night on January 2, while he was sleeping inside. He was hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns on his legs that left him permanently disfigured and which will continue to require medical treatment. He is seeking an amount in excess of $225,000 for actual and punitive damages. The second lawsuit was filed by the man’s next door neighbors who allege ONG knew about the danger and could have prevented it but did not. The couple also suffered injuries as a result of the explosion.

The lawsuits come at a time when some other residents say they're feeling forgotten, abandoned or pressured by ONG in the wake of the explosion. While the utility said it has settled claims with more than 30 households affected by the blast, a few residents say they've had no contact with the utility or have been pressured to sign what they considered unfair settlements.

Cases like this take time and incredible amounts of resources to reach a settlement. For many victims, waiting for fair compensation is not a viable option, especially if unable to return to work due to injuries. For these families temporary housing, clothing and more must be acquired. In order to avoid financial hardship, Lawsuit Financial could provide lawsuit funding to prevent these plaintiffs from settling for less than full case value.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance against a potential jury verdict or settlement designed to help plaintiffs pay medical expenses and the monthly bills that pile up while awaiting a lawsuit settlement. It puts time in the hands of the plaintiff to await justice.

If you have been the victim of gas explosion resulting to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, and seeking compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, you may also qualify for lawsuit funding. Applying for a lawsuit cash advance requires one to complete an application. The transaction is risk-free and clients often obtain money within 24 - 48 hours. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis and is completely contingent on the outcome of the lawsuit. If the lawsuit fails, the cash advance is completely excused. There are no upfront fees and no monthly payments. Credit and employment do not matter because we focus on the case and the case, alone.

Easing The Financial Pressures of A Lawsuit

If you are involved in a lawsuit or legal claim, it may take months or even years to receive the highest possible settlement. When your ability to work is affected, the longer your case lasts, the more difficult it becomes to pay everyday bills. Financial pressures can put a tremendous strain, but Lawsuit Financial can offer a series of well-placed non-recourse lawsuit advances to ease the financial pressure to settle early for too little. We believe being forced to settle for less than you deserve because you are in a financial bind is not seeking justice and could result in losing thousands, even millions of dollars of fair compensation. Lawsuit funding can dramatically change the outcome of your case by leveling the playing field. When you are more financially stable, your attorney has more time to negotiate the settlement you deserve.

Plaintiffs who apply for, and receive, lawsuit funding can use the money for anything they wish, but the cash advance is usually meant to pay important bills and other household expenses. By requesting cash advances on an as needed basis, it enforces financial discipline. Plaintiffs that receive a lump sum may be more inclined to spend some of the money on “luxuries” only to find in following months that they need more cash for the “necessities”, especially if the case takes longer than expected to settle. Requesting funding in smaller increments is also less costly because repayment is based on the cash advance amount at the time the funding was provided. The longer a cash advance is outstanding, the more expensive the repayment.

How easy is it for plaintiffs to obtain funding? First of all, eligibility simply requires a pending lawsuit and attorney representation. Next, we require a one-page funding application. That’s it! We take it from there; no need for a credit check or employment verification. Lawsuit Financial will review case materials from the plaintiff’s attorney and once we determine the strength of the case, we make a funding decision.

Truck Drive Detaches Cab Then Flees Scene Of Fatal Accident

Police are searching for the hit-and-run tractor-trailer driver who killed one person and severely injured another in Vernon, California gruesome crash. Apparently, after the truck driver fled the scene of a minor collision he proceeded to run a red light. As he blasted through the intersection, the semi collided with a Chevy pick-up truck which became wedged underneath the semi’s trailer. The truck driver attempted to keep driving, but stopped after hearing the sound of the mangled Chevy beneath his trailer. That only stopped him temporarily. The semi unhitched the trailer and fled the scene in the cab of the truck.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, they had to cut open the Chevy in order to extricate the two men trapped inside. The passenger died at the scene; the driver was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Police located the abandoned tractor cab about a mile away, but after speaking to several witnesses and officials of the Texas-based company connected to the truck, they have identified a “person of interest.” No arrests have been made.

Regardless of how an accident occurs if you are a victim due to no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Therefore, it is important to consult an experienced attorney. Although an attorney can build a case on your behalf and seek the justice deserved, this takes time which often creates financial distress. Just because you are involved in a lawsuit does not mean you don’t have financial obligations – mortgage payments, car payments, medical expenses, utility bills, and more. Failure to pay can lead to harassing collection calls, foreclosure, and can jeopardize a good credit score. This is where lawsuit funding can help.

What about applying for a traditional bank loan, you ask? While traditional types of financing can be less expensive than a lawsuit cash advance, they require employment verification and credit checks. If your credit has been damaged or you cannot show employment, it is not likely you will be able to obtain a bank loan, even you are considered a “valued customer.” Assume you do qualify for a traditional bank loan, then what? It will need to be repaid, usually with monthly payments, regardless of your financial status. Not matter what happens in your case, win or lose, you will be required to repay the bank loan in full. On the other hand, lawsuit funding is based entirely on the strength of your case. There are no credit checks, employment verification, or monthly payments. You only repay the advance when your case successfully settles. If you lose your case, the advance is yours to keep with no further obligation to the funding company.

If you believe that lawsuit funding could help you during a financial time of need while waiting for case settlement, contact Lawsuit Financial. Our dedicated staff can typically approve your lawsuit cash advance request within 24 – 48 hours of receiving all necessary case documents and speaking to your attorney. The funds can be wire-transferred directly to your bank account or sent via overnight mail. When the case settles, your attorney will repay the cash advance plus interest from the proceeds of the settlement; no monies will ever come directly out of your pocket to pay us.

Call today and see if Lawsuit Financial can help you negotiate from a position of strength, not financial desperation.

The “How’s” Of Lawsuit Funding

Does this sound like your scenario?

• You were seriously injured in an auto accident due to a distracted driver.
• You have filed a personal injury lawsuit, but the medical bills are piling up.
• You need to replace your damage vehicle.
• Your credit cards have reached their limits.
• You have been out of work due to your injuries.

The big question is – when will your case settle because you need money NOW!

When you need financial relief without accepting a less-than-favorable settlement, consider lawsuit funding. Lawsuit funding is a cash advance provided to plaintiffs in advance of their expected settlement. Funding is based on case strength, not your credit report or employment status. The money can be used any way you would like, but it is recommended that it be used for “emergency” needs, such as medical expenses, mortgage, car payments, etc.

How do you obtain a lawsuit cash advance?
It is really quite easy. As long as you are in a pending claim and have attorney representation, you are. Simple complete our one-page, online application or call our office. After submitting your application, we will work with your attorney to determine the amount of funding we can provide.

How long will it take to receive your money?

Once we receive an application for funding and the necessary case documentation, we can make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. If you accept our cash advance offer, you and your attorney will sign a contract. Once we receive the signed contract, we will overnight mail or wire transfer the funds for immediate use.

How is repayment made?
Lawsuit funding is an advance, not a loan. Therefore, there are no monthly payments. You simple repay the cash advance when your case settles. Repayment is made by your attorney from the case proceeds, so there is never an out-of-pocket expense to you. Best of all, we never require repayment if you lose your case.

How do you determine if lawsuit funding is right for you?

Lawsuit Claims Medical Device Caused Brain Damage

Every year, millions of people are surgically implanted with medical devices under the belief that it will help a medical issue or alleviate pain. But, if the device is defective in any way, the patient can suffer significant harm and even death.

A lawsuit was recently filed against Penumbra, a California based company, claiming its medical device used to treat aneurysms malfunctioned and caused a software engineer to suffer brain damage. According to the suit, Dennis Montgomery suffered an aneurysm in 2013. During surgery at Overlake Hospital in Bellevue, the doctor placed 90 percent of a Penumbra Coil 400 into the aneurysm, but the last 10 percent detached prematurely and got stuck in the intracranial artery, which led to clots and ultimately a stroke and brain damage.

The Food and Drug Administration initiated a recall of the Penumbra Coil 400 in 2011 after finding that the pull wire could slip out of place and prematurely detach, potentially causing serious injury, stroke or death, according to the lawsuit. Penumbra obtained an FDA clearance to market the coil in 2012. The device used on Mr. Montgomery was manufactured in August 2011 with an expiration date of Aug. 31, 2013. It has not yet been determined if the device used was one of the recalled coils, or if the new coils have the same problem.

The lawsuit also names Penumbra representatives who attended the surgery and Overlake Hospital Medical Center in King County Superior Court. The suit seeks an undisclosed amount for medical and economic costs as well as damages. Penumbra has filed a motion to dismiss.

Product liability lawsuits where a person is injured due to a defect product require proof that the product was defective, and that defect caused injury or death. Most claims are based on one of the following:

• Fail to warn. If manufacturers of a medical product fail to warn patients of potential risks or dangers, they may be liable for the injury.
• Design flaws. Manufacturers of products that have defects in their design that cause injury may be liable for damages.
• Failure to recall. If a medical device manufacturer fails to recall a product that is found be dangerous, they may be liable.

These cases are complex and take time to settle. Most manufacturers will deny the claim putting profits over people and aggressively fight to keep their products on the market until forced to stop. While the plaintiff’s attorney will fight hard for a victims rights, it most often comes with immediate financial devastation for the plaintiff.

At Lawsuit Financial, we understand that the litigation process takes time, during which bills can pile up, resulting in financial problems that could lead to foreclosure, eviction or bankruptcy. With our quick and easy litigation funding services, Lawsuit Financial can provide a cash advance against a pending settlement, usually within 24 – 48 hours. There is no risk to our clients because we are repaid only after the case settles. If our client loses the case, we completely waive the cash advance.

As with any major financial decision, it’s important to get all the facts. Lawsuit Financial provides free, no-obligation consultations to provide you with a solution that is customized to your specific needs. Once you make a decision to apply for litigation funding, simply complete our one-page application or give us a call; we will do the rest. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification; funding decisions are completely dependent on the facts of your case. If you are in the middle of a pending lawsuit and need financial assistance, do not hesitate to call Lawsuit Financial.

Wheelchair Bound Man Hit By Suspected Drunk Driver

A personal injury is that life-changing moment when you are seriously injured as the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. That can’t be further from the truth for a 45-year-old Dallas man.

Born with no arms and no legs, he has been wheelchair bound all his life. Last month, as he was crossing the street, the man was hit by a suspected drunken driver. The car then hit a tree and utility pole before flipping over. The man in the wheelchair suffered serious injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital. Doctors believe his wheelchair absorbed the brunt of the crash and may have saved his life, but his $25,000 motorized wheelchair was destroyed and his prosthetic legs valued at $10,000 were crushed. The suspected drunk driver was arrested. Records showed that he had been previously arrested for a variety of drug charges however, there are no report of him having been involved in any prior auto-pedestrian accidents.

Although someone has offered to donate a used replacement chair, the victim has no idea how he will replace his prosthetic legs. He should consult a personal injury attorney to discuss potential civil litigation. A civil lawsuit is filed for compensation and is separate and distinct from any criminal proceedings filed against the drunk. Damages may include medical bills, a prosthetic legs, a new wheelchair, lost wages because of inability to work or impaired function, rehabilitation, therapy and more. In addition to the drunk driver, any bar, restaurant, etc. that may have continued serving the man who was “physically intoxicated” may be held liable under dram shop laws.

While discussing the case with an attorney, he might also want to ask about lawsuit funding. A lawsuit cash advance could help this man financially until a verdict or settlement is reached. Lawsuit Financial is a direct lender for lawsuit funding. We charge no upfront fees or monthly payments, and our funding is provided at no risk. The only requirement is a pending lawsuit with merit and a serious financial need. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, so if this man would lose his case, there is no obligation to pay us back. Repayment is only made when the case is won. With our quick and easy application process, cash can be available via direct deposit or overnight mail in as little as 48 hours.

If you have been seriously injured due to the negligence of someone else, are seeking restitution, and need financial assistance, call our office or complete our free, online funding application. We may be able to help you financially while your lawsuit works its way through the legal system. Call Lawsuit Financial today for more information.

Medical Malpractice Litigants Find Financial Relief With Litigation Fund

When a hospital patient lies in one position for an extended period of time, he/she can develop painful lesions known as pressure sores or bedsores. Though most health care organizations consider bedsores to be easily preventable, an alarming number of injuries and deaths have been attributed to this condition because medical staff may not always take the proper measures such as hygiene, supervision, turning and repositioning and frequent skin assessments.

The development of a bedsore is never the fault of the patient, but such negligence is often denied by the medical staff and facility. This should never deter the victim, or their loved ones, from seeking the justice they deserve. Damages in many bed sore litigations may be obtained for medical expenses, pain, disfigurement and emotional loss. Additionally, pursuing a lawsuit will help to ensure others are not harmed by the same negligent practices in the future.

On Jan. 10, 2015, Frank R. Martino was admitted to Ruby Memorial Hospital for repair of an incarcerated incisional abdominal hernia, according to a recent lawsuit. Martino claims that three days later, a nurse identified a “skin tear” and within two weeks, it evolved into a severe, debilitating pressure ulcer wound that required several months of treatment. The lawsuit claims the hospital is liable for negligence, and responsible for his pain and suffering; mental anguish; embarrassment; and loss of ability to enjoy life. The suit also claims his wife suffered a loss of consortium as a result of the pressure ulcer. The Martino’s are seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

The time between when the lawsuit was filed and a settlement is reach could stretch over years - time that is financially difficult for many plaintiffs. When the ability to wait for compensation is not an option, litigation funding may be.

Litigation funding, a cash advance based on the predicted outcome of a case, can bridge the gap between financial needs and a fair settlement. With bills and creditors at bay, the plaintiff can concentrate on recovering, and his attorney has more time to seek full compensation. Receiving funding is based solely on the strength of the case. If the case is reviewed and appears to be winnable, the application will likely be approved with funds available within 24-48 hours. There is no risk to the client because funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning that Lawsuit Financial accepts 100% of the risk. Plaintiffs pay nothing until the case settles, at which time we are repaid directly from the case proceeds. If the plaintiff loses, the repayment is waived completely.

If you are a plaintiff in a pending lawsuit, you do not want to conduct settlement negotiations when you are struggling financially. You will, most likely, accept an offer that is less than full case value. Lawsuit Financial will devise a legal finance plan to assist you through the difficult time so you can wait for a larger, injury appropriate settlement. Call us today at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) to discuss your financial needs or complete our online application to get started.

Sounds Like Gunshots Woke Tenants In Massive Apartment Fire That Claimed Three Lives

Landlords building owners have a duty to maintain their property, to inspect the premises for problems and to warn of hazardous conditions. If they shirk this responsibility, serious injuries or death can occur. For victims who file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, Lawsuit Financial may be able to provide premise liability lawsuit funding.

Three people died and six were injured after a blaze broke out at the Springmist Apartments in Winchester, Kentucky. According to Fire Chief Cathy Rigney, firefighters were called to the apartment complex sometime after 1 a.m. on March 11. When they arrived, heavy smoke and flames were coming from the windows and out of the roof of the two-story structure. Rigney said some people jumped from second-story windows to escape the fire. Two people were found dead inside the building; a third person died after being transported to the hospital. At least 10 units were destroyed, displacing residents. Rigney said she didn't know if each unit had a working smoke detector, but said the wood frame building had no sprinkler system. A preliminary investigation showed that the fire originated in a main floor apartment where one of the tenants was smoking while using an oxygen machine. The 55-year-old man, Jackie Hisle, Jr., has been arrested on three counts of second-degree manslaughter in connection with the fire.

Two civil lawsuits have been filed alleging negligence and dangerous conditions. Ervin Reynolds, the husband and administrator of the estate of Tina Reynolds, 29, who died in the fire, claims that the fire started in Hisle’s apartment and spread to the second floor. Mr. Reynolds said jumped from a bedroom window and was seriously injured, but his wife did not jump and died in the fire. The lawsuit alleges that the apartment building did not have required fire stops (physical barriers designed to stop the spread of flames), alarms or escapes and the owners failed to keep the building up to local or state building codes. The lawsuit names Jackie Hisle Jr., B&P Apartments, who owned the building, and John Hall (the owner when the complex was built) as defendants. Hall is listed as a defendant because government records show that he “was to complete fire stops with fire separation of one hour,” but that the “stops were not properly installed … if installed at all.”

The second lawsuit was filed on behalf of Eric Everman and the estate of Dixie Everman, 71, who also died in the fire. That lawsuit says Eric jumped from a second-floor window “to prevent himself from being burned alive.” Dixie also jumped but died later at the hospital. The Everman lawsuit says that there were “inadequate sprinkler systems, smoke alarms, smoke detectors and an inadequate evacuation plan or means of escape for the occupants in the event of a fire.”

Both lawsuits says that B&P Apartments “knew or should have known” that Hisle smoked near his oxygen machine and “was not capable of managing the flammable and explosive material.” B&P Apartments denies the allegations. Hisle’s son, Donald, 36, also died in the fire.

James Tackett, the current property owner, said he cleans each apartment when a tenant moves out and ensures that it has a working smoke detector before a new tenant moves in. Tackett said some of the apartments are government subsidized and must pass inspection, which would not happen if the smoke detectors didn't work. He also said that the apartments have small stoves that frequently set off the detectors, so some tenants have been known to take down the smoke detectors or remove the batteries.

If it is determined that a case for negligence can be proven, case resolution by settlement or verdict may take months, even years. If the plaintiffs find themselves needing financial assistance during this time, they may want to investigate and obtain a lawsuit cash advance from Lawsuit Financial.

The main reason plaintiffs seek lawsuit funding is that the process is quick and easy, it takes away the financial pressure to settle a case too early, for too little and permits victims to wait out the process to achieve fair and equitable case results. In contrast to traditional bank loans, with lawsuit funding there is absolutely no collateral needed, therefore there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. As long as the case is strong, funded approval is usually granted.

Once approved, Lawsuit Financial clients receive their cash advance within 24-48 hours by check or wire. There are no monthly payments or upfront fees. While we recommend the money be used for “life necessities” such as car and mortgage payments, tuition or medical expenses, there are no limitations on how the money is used. Our clients pay back the money once they receive their settlement, but if they lose their case, they owe us nothing.

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in a tragic accident such as this apartment fire and doubt you can maintain your life financially while awaiting your case to settle, lawsuit funding could be the answer you need. Contact Lawsuit Financial for a free case analysis.

Lawsuit Funding Is A Financial Buffer For Cash Strapped Plaintiffs

If you were suddenly injured in an auto accident and unable to work, would you have a means to pay the bills – mortgage, rent, car payments, tuition, medical expenses, utility bills and groceries? How long would that money last? What if you filed a personal injury lawsuit, but the insurance company offered an inadequate settlement offer or was denying the claim causing your case to drag on indefinitely? In the meantime, bills continue to pour in while creditors continue to call, demanding payment. Do you know how you would stay financially afloat? Most people have never given this scenario a thought until they are confronted with a similar situation.

Although your attorney will do the best he/she can to obtain justice and get you the compensation you deserve as quickly as possible, the insurance company will use every tactic in the book to persuade you to settle for less. They will de-value your claim and use stall tactics in an effort to wear you down to the point that you accept their low settlement offer. While it may seem fair at the time – covering past and present bills, it will most likely not be nearly enough for future expenses associated with your loss.

Everyday expenses do not stop because you or a loved one have been catastrophically injured or killed. If you don't have the financial ability to wait out the litigation process for a favorable settlement or verdict, litigation funding may not be just a good option; it may be the only option. Qualifying is easy because funding eligibility is based solely on case strength; there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Once approved, funding can be mailed or wired into your account within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, you are never at any risk financially because repayment is only made after your case successfully settles. If for any reason you lose, the cash advance is completely waived.

Are you in the middle of a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit? Is the financial strain of your case too much to handle? You don’t have to suffer financially or wait months, even years, for your settlement or jury award. You can have part of it now, and absolutely risk-free. To learn more about litigation funding and how you may benefit, simply complete our easy, online application or call our office toll-free at 1-877-377-7848.

Lawsuit Funding Helps Victims of Personal Injuries Take Action

While a personal injury can be due to a host of reasons – defective product, medical malpractice, slip and fall accident, dangerous products – the most common cause is an auto accident. When serious injury occurs, the first step is to seek medical attention. Once you have done so, it is important to gather as much information applicable to your accident as possible, such as the names and contact information of any witnesses and photos of the accident scene. You should also retain all medical records and expenses. Although an insurance company will determine the amount of compensation in accordance with a “formula”, it is often not enough to compensate you adequately for your loss. An experienced auto accident attorney can evaluate your claim, explain your rights, and help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Although an attorney will represent you on a contingency basis, the case may take several months – sometimes a year or more – to settle. In the meantime, you may be struggling financially to pay the basic living expenses, such as groceries, mortgage, and car payments, as well as expenses associated with the accident, such as medical bills. When that happens, your first thought might be to accept the insurance company’s offer. You do not have to settle for less than your case is worth just because you don’t have the money to withstand the delay tactics of the defense. Lawsuit Financial can help you pay the immediate expenses so you can ultimately receive the settlement you deserve.

Lawsuit funding (sometimes referred to as a “lawsuit loan”), is NOT a loan, but rather a non-recourse cash advance. This means that you repay the advance, plus fees, if and when your case successfully settles. If the case is lost, the cash advance is completely waived; you owe us absolutely nothing. What bank or lending institution would make that guarantee?
Other unique features of lawsuit funding is that there are no credit checks or proof of employment required because approval is based solely on the strength of the lawsuit. In most cases, we can provide the cash advance in less than 48 hours.

If you are worried about bills while waiting for your lawsuit to settle, complete our online application or call our office to see if your case qualifies for lawsuit funding.

Investigation Determined Safety Features Disabled In Vehicle That Rolled Over Lakeside, CA Girl

On Feb. 22, 10-year-old Kiera Larson was playing with two young toddlers when a 1999 Mercedes SUV that was parked on a sloping driveway started rolling down a hill towards them. Kiera pushed the toddlers out of the path of the vehicle, but the car struck her and pushed her through a fence. She died from her injuries in a California hospital.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) determined that two disabled safety features may account for the accident. First, the shift interrupter or interlock, which prevents someone from shifting out of park unless the foot is on the brake, was “broken or disabled or disconnected,” Secondly, a cable running from the brake pedal to the ignition had been disconnected. Investigators are still working to determine who is responsible for disabling the features.

Losing a loved one is an extremely difficult time for family members affected by the tragedy. No matter how this investigation concludes, the family should seek legal advice from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. They may be able to receive compensation for the wrongful death of this child and claim damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and other damages resulting from the accident. Obviously, this type of litigation can become quite complex and take a long time to settle causing immediate and long-term financial problems for the family. Lawsuit funding can help them pay the bills during the litigation process.

It is free and easy to apply for a lawsuit funding online or by phone. There are also no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. If approved, the lawsuit cash advance would arrive within 24-48 hours by check or by wire. Repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case; if the case is lost, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety. That is correct; the plaintiff would owe nothing.

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, lawsuit funding can mean the difference between settling for less too early and waiting for a fair judgment later. Call us today if you have any funding questions. We offer free, no-obligation consultations.

Man Wakes Up In Dentist Chair To Find All His Teeth Were Pulled

Last month, a 36-year-old Indiana man went to White River Dental for a routine procedure to have four teeth removed. When he woke up, Donnie Grisby learned that he lost a whole lot more.

Amanda Grisby said after five hours of waiting, she got worried and demanded to know what was going on. That’s when Amanda said she was told the dentist pulled all her husband’s teeth due to an infection he feared might spread. When she saw her husband, Amanda said he was unresponsive and covered in blood. An ambulance was called, and Donny coded twice on the way to the Columbus Regional Hospital. Doctors there had to put him in a medically induced coma. Although Donny is home now, he uses an oxygen tank because he still has blood clots as a result of the dental work. White River Dental said due to HIPPA laws, it is unable to comment on any allegations, but the dentist said in a statement that while patient privacy laws prevent him from addressing the matter specifically, “every patient” has treatments “explained to them thoroughly” and “all the proper consent forms are signed prior to any treatment being performed.” The Grisby’s say they plan to file a malpractice suit.

Dental malpractice cases typically fall under malpractice law. You must prove that the dental care provider (including dental assistants, dental hygienists and oral surgeons) failed to provide the quality of care that other reasonably competent dentists would have provided under similar circumstances and that harm was caused by the negligence. Dental negligence can include:
• Permanent or temporary numbness or loss of taste sensation
• Injuries or death caused by improper or negligent administration of anesthesia
• Complications arising from negligently completed crowns and bridges
• Certain complications from anesthesia, even when releases are signed
• Unnecessary extraction of multiple teeth and/or extraction of wrong teeth

A dental malpractice attorney can help a victim recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and any mental and/or physical pain and suffering caused by the dentist’s negligence. However, such cases are usually very complicated and will likely take at least a year before a plaintiff reaches a settlement.

Many victims of medical negligence find that they simply do not have the financial assets needed to weather the storm without help. Once their lawsuit is filed, if the Grisby’s find themselves in this situation while waiting for their rightfully deserved compensation, lawsuit funding may be of interest. This non-recourse cash advance requires no upfront fees or monthly payments, and the couple need not have a job. Furthermore, no money is repaid until the case successfully settles, and if the Grisby’s lose, they keep the cash advance free and with no obligation. All they need to do is complete our one-page funding application online or over the phone. We will request case documentation from their attorney and review the case. If approved, we can wire transfer or overnight mail funds within 24 – 48 hours.

Don’t let a negative financial picture force you to settle for less than you deserve. Contact the legal funding experts at Lawsuit Financial. We can’t undo the negligence; we can’t rewind the clock so that it never happened. What we can do is help you to survive the financial turmoil that was caused until a settlement is reached.

Two Workers Dead, Several Passengers Injured After Amtrak Train Hits Equipment On Track

The NTSB is investigating an Amtrak train crash near Philadelphia, resulting in the death of two workers, and injuring more than 30 passengers aboard the train.

The train was traveling was traveling southbound heading for Savannah, Georgia when it struck a backhoe on the tracks. The impact derailed the lead engine of the train that was carrying more than 300 passengers and seven crew members. One of the workers killed was operating the backhoe; the other was a supervisor. It is unclear why the backhoe was on an active track, but officials said the train was going 106 mph in a 110 mph zone when it struck the equipment.

New York Senator Chuck Schumer (D) said it is unclear whether the equipment was being used for regular maintenance, which usually is scheduled on Sunday mornings because there are fewer trains on the tracks, or whether it was clearing debris from high winds in the area overnight, but he said there is virtually no excuse for a backhoe to be on an active track. "Clearly this seems very likely to be human error,” said Schumer.

The derailment comes almost a year after an Amtrak train from Washington D.C. bound for New York City derailed in Philadelphia. Eight people were killed and more than 200 were injured in the May 12 crash. The exact cause of that crash is still under investigation, but authorities have said the train had been traveling twice the speed.

Unfortunately, train accidents are not uncommon, as we have read in the last few years, often times result in numerous injuries and deaths. Lawsuit can take years which is why Lawsuit Financial is dedicated to helping victims financially, during an already emotional and physical time. We provide short-term compensation -- known as a lawsuit funding -- prior to plaintiffs receiving a settlement.

A Hit-And-Run Accident Involving a Drunk Driver May Be Eligible For Litigation Funding

Drunk driving accidents are one of the most devastating types of crashes, and 100% preventable.

Two women are recovering after they were pinned between two cars while loading items into their vehicle. Police said that an alleged drunk driver was traveling at a high rate of speed when he struck a parked car that was located in front of the women. The force of impact pushed the parked car into the woman’s vehicle. Both women were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The intoxicated driver fled the scene, but was caught after he crashed is vehicle during a police pursuit. He was arrested and charged with intoxication assault, two counts of failure to stop and render aid, and evading arrest in a vehicle.

The fact that the negligent driver was arrested and charged does little to pay the bills for the injured woman. Although they may wish to file a personal injury lawsuit, it may take months or even years before a settlement is reached. Meanwhile, they still have to pay bills and meet their financial obligations. If money is tight, one solution is to secure litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance in exchange for a portion of the future proceeds of the case.

At Lawsuit Financial, our lawsuit cash advances are provided on a non-recourse basis, without the need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. In fact, no payment is made until the case settles. If the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived.

Do you have a personal injury lawsuit case pending? Are you in need of fast cash? In the right situation, for the right plaintiff, litigation funding is clearly a service that plaintiffs should consider at a strategic time in the litigation. Once approved, funds can be available for immediate use within 24 – 48 hours. Call Lawsuit Financial to learn how litigation funding can help you.

Man Sentenced To Two Years In Fatal Boating Crash May Still Face Civil Lawsuits

What began as a fun weekend at the lake, turned into a tragedy.

A 54-year-old Grands Fork, MN man allegedly had a blood alcohol content more than twice the legal limit when the boat he was operating at about 2:45 a.m. Aug. 9, 2015 struck a tree sticking out of the lake. A 26-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene; the driver and others were transported to the hospital with injuries, two of them critically.

The driver of the boat had a blood alcohol content of 0.178 approximately three hours after the crash, according to a blood test taken at the hospital. Officials also determined that the man was operating the boat at a high rate of speed, estimated up to 38 mph, just 20 feet from shore. It is unknown if the boat had safety lights or if the passengers were wearing life jackets. The operator of the boat was recently sentenced to manslaughter, three counts of reckless endangerment, and boating under the influence.

When an accident occurs in a boat accident because of the carelessness of the owner, the victim can be legally entitled to financial reparations. Some families of the victims have already indicated they will be filing civil lawsuits against the negligent driver. While nothing will undo their loss, holding the drunk driver accountable will provide some compensation and hopefully act as a deterrent against future negligence by boaters.

Boating accident lawsuits may take years before a settlement is reached, and with bills continuously adding up, the ability to wait for a settlement may not be an option. When this happens, litigation funding can be an essential asset. Litigation funding is a service that provides a lawsuit cash advance, before your case is settled, that will permit plaintiffs to wait for a just settlement rather than be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar because of financial difficulties.

Legal finance companies like Lawsuit Financial, do not require credit checks; you don’t have to be employed to apply. All we require is a strong case and attorney representation. There are no monthly payments; we are repaid from the case proceeds once the case successfully settles. If our client loses the case, we completely waive repayment of the cash advance. The application process is easy and free, by phone or online. Approvals are often completed, with funding provided via check or wire transfer within 24-48 hours. The cash advance can be used to pay outstanding bills, purchase a car, or anything else the client needs; there are no restrictions on how the money can be spent.

If you have been injured in a boating accident due to the negligence or reckless of another, Lawsuit Financial believes you shouldn’t have to wait or settle for less than you deserve. Call us today and learn how our litigation funding services can be a valuable asset for you.

Speeding To Blame In Crash That Killed Three Siblings And Seriously Injures Another

Speeding may seem like a small infraction, but the consequences of such reckless behavior can be devastating. When serious or fatal harm is done, victims have a right to pursue compensation for damages. Sadly, this can take years and include financial hardships on top of the emotional and physical pain. In fact, insurance companies know that most victims need money, so they tend to prolong the case hoping to force victims into an early settlement. While we can’t take away the physical and emotional pain, Lawsuit Financial can help with the financial burden by providing a lawsuit cash advance.

A Dallas woman and her four kids were on their way to a karate class. According to police, the woman approached the intersection and seeing it was clear to proceed, pulled forward to make a left turn. Suddenly, a speeding driver struck the left side of her 1998 Sedan with such force that it pushed the woman’s vehicle into oncoming traffic. The three children in the back seat – a 3-year-old female, a 6-year-old male and an 11-year-old female – were pronounced dead at the hospital. A 13-year-old female sitting in the front passenger seat is in critical condition. Both drivers were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. Police said the speeding driver is facing three counts of criminally negligent homicide.

The area is regularly targeted by police, but residents say speeding is still a problem and more permanent solutions must be made, such as a traffic light. While the investigation continues, the family of the victims should consult an auto accident attorney to investigate not only driver negligence, but whether the roadway was knowingly dangerous. Compensation may include the total expenses resulting from a crash; medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, property damages etc. If a lawsuit is pursued, waiting for a settlement can take a long time, putting this family in financial ruin. Cases like this, is where Lawsuit Financial can help ease short-term financial problems.

With lawsuit funding, a plaintiff can pay medical expenses, funeral expenses, or any financial obligations. The process to apply for a lawsuit cash advance is easy and it's also free. If you qualify, lawsuit funding can often be available in as little as 24 hours. Suffering injuries are the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; don’t succumb to a financial hardship as well.

“Freak” Basketball Accident Claims Life

It was a typical day for a 16-year-old Ohio teen – playing basketball with friends at Calvary Baptist Church. But, when Noah Lear went up to slam dunk the ball, a support pole snapped and the whole thing- backboard, rim and post came down on him. Still conscious, Noah called his mom to let her know what happened. He said his mouth was bleeding and he knocked out a few teeth, but his friends called 911 and the police were taking him to the hospital.

At the hospital, Noah went into cardiac arrest twice; he was airlifted to Nationwide Children’s Hospital. An emergency tracheostomy was done to help get oxygen to his brain. He endured surgeries and was put in a medically induced coma, which is standard for the type of injuries he incurred. By March 7, Noah was breathing on his own, but had yet to come out of the coma. While there were signs of brain activity, the part of his brain that controls vitals such as heart rate, body temperature and blood pressure had been severely damaged. After several specialists said there was nothing they could do, Noah was moved to hospice care where he remained in a coma until he succumbed to his injuries 18 days after the incident.

The loss of a life is never easy, especially when it’s a child. In this tragic death, we know the -- who, what, when, and where. What no one knows is – why? As Noah’s family begins the healing process, they may be asking “Why did the support pole snap?” “Why did the whole thing come done?”

In order to allege a wrongful death, the family must prove the snapped support pole was the result of negligence on the part of the church or the manufacturer of the basketball pole. If reports indicate the pole was defective or was not properly maintained resulting in the detachment, the church and/or manufacturer may be held liable for the accident and the wrongful death of Noah.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit and negotiating a settlement isn’t an easy task, which is why it is important to hire an experienced attorney. Although a GoFundMe page was set up to help with the unexpected medical costs, if Noah’s family is financially strapped during a lengthy legal process, they may be interested in litigation funding.

At Lawsuit Financial, we offer non-recourse lawsuit cash advances against an anticipated settlement. That means victims will never be at financial risk of paying back a high-cost loan if their case is unsuccessful. We only get paid if, and when, our client wins the case and receives a settlement. If you are having trouble meeting your expenses while waiting for a legal settlement, litigation funding may be a helpful solution. It is easy to apply online or call our office at (877) 377-7848.

Lawsuit Against Nursing Home Alleges Inadequate Care Caused Death

Nursing homes have a legal responsibility to provide a specific standard of care to their patients. Staff workers and caregivers must be available to assist residents with a variety of needs such as getting out of bed, walking to the bathroom, or eating. Generally, nursing homes provide sufficient care to patients. However, when that duty is violated and serious injury or death occurs, family members have the right to pursue a lawsuit. When justice extends beyond one’s financial position, lawsuit funding can help.

A second wrongful-death lawsuit has been filed against a Marysville, Washington nursing home alleging inadequate care that lead to death. The lawsuit alleges that the nursing home was negligent and did not provide adequate care, including insufficient nutrition and fluids.

In December 2012, the 85-year-old man was admitted to the nursing home. Shortly thereafter, he became dehydrated and malnourished, and his diabetic symptoms and high blood pressure worsened, according to the lawsuit. He also lost his ability to move without help. The suit alleges that due to staff negligence, the patient suffered bed sores and MRSA. He also suffered a fractured vertebrae from falling trying to reach the bathroom, after calls for assistance when unanswered. A once active and independent man, he never fully recovered from a procedure to fix the vertebral fracture. He died Feb. 21, 2013.

If you or a loved one suffered physical or emotional injuries because a nursing home was negligent or failed to fulfill its care obligations to you and your family, you may have grounds for a nursing home negligence case. Contact an experience attorney as soon as possible. If you are seeking lawsuit funding to help during this financially difficult time, leverage Lawsuit Financial’s money to hold out for full case value.

GPS Fatal Distraction

Although many newer vehicles come equipped with a voice-activated GPS preinstalled, GPS on cell phones is common and many drivers are using them to navigate while behind the wheel. But, this technology can lead to serious, even fatal accidents.

Three Houston teens were killed in a car crash that authorities say was caused by distracted driving. On their way home from a spring break getaway on South Padre Island, the 18-year-old driver glanced at a map on her cell phone to make sure she was in the right place. When the vehicle veered off to the left, the driver tried to regain control but overcorrected, crossed the median, and collided head-on with an 18-wheeler. The impact crushed the car, instantly killing two backseat passengers. The driver and a third passenger were airlifted to an area hospital in critical condition; the passenger died a few hours later. The driver of the 18-wheeler was unharmed. Reports indicate that the teens were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

This fatal accident shows that a moment’s lapse in concentration can prove deadly. Remember that the most important task to perform behind the wheel is to get yourself and your passengers safely to your destination. While a GPS unit is an invaluable tool for many drivers, it is important that it is used safely to avoid a distraction that may lead to a serious or fatal accident.

• Program your GPS to your destination before you start driving.
• Learn how to use the voice navigation setting if your unit has one. Listening to voice commands will help keep your eyes on the road and decrease your chances of being involved in an accident.
• Ask a passengers in your vehicle for help. If you don’t have any passengers with you, or they are not old enough to operate the system, pull off the road. Never read or program the GPS unit while driving.

Auto Accident Lawsuit Funding Provides Financial Stability

Alcohol May Have Been A Factor In Fatal Michigan ATV Rollover Accident

An investigation is ongoing in a weekend crash that claimed the life of a 13-year-old following an ATV accident. The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department reported that a 28-year-old Howell, Michigan man was operating a John Deer Gator at Hawk Meadows Golf Course when it overturned, ejecting both the driver and the boy. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene; the driver was treated for non-life threatening injuries. Neither the driver of the ATV or the teen were wearing seat belts. Police are investigating whether alcohol played a factor.

Widow Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Recycling Center Death

As a man was walking to the trash compactor building, a woman backing up to unload her trash accidentally struck. The force of impact was strong enough to knock the man into the trash hopper. The cause of the crash was determined as driver error; tests determined there was no vehicle malfunction and blood tests showed the negligent driver was not impaired at the time of the incident.

The widow of the deceased filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver and the Town of Cape Elizabeth. The suit claims the town is responsible for her husband's death because it implemented a plan where vehicles back into the garage hopper disposal area.

Lawsuit Funding Can Be The Right Choice In A Wrong-Way Crash

Last month a 26-year-old was killed on the Florida Turnpike. Last week, a wrong-way driver collided with a sheriff's deputy, killing them both. This week, a Honda van collided head-on with a cab driver; both drivers were dead at the scene.

A Florida Department of Transportation study released last year found that there were about 280 wrong-way crashes on interstates and expressways across the state between 2009 to 2013, with nearly one in five being fatal. The Florida Highway Patrol said the majority are caused by impaired drivers. Officials said they are working to install wrong-way driver alert systems, which would notify the wrong-way driver, law enforcement and other motorists on the road of possible danger. Drivers should also be extra cautious when driving at night or during the early morning hours, when the majority of wrong-way crashes happen.

If you have been injured in a wrong-way accident or lost a love one due to a crash, immediately contact an attorney. While a wrong-way accident may seem easy to prove and often settle through negotiations without having to file a lawsuit, there are cases when an insurance company is unreasonable in making a fair offer forcing the victim into a lawsuit. Once the suit is filed, the innocent victim can apply for auto accident lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a 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. It cost nothing to apply and if approved, the money can arrive within 24 – 48 hours. The process begins with completing a one-page application upon which time the funding company will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for documentation. Funding is based solely on the strength of the lawsuit; there are no credit checks or employment verification. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles; if the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

If you or someone you love has been involved in a wrong-way auto accident, or suffered a serious injury in any other type of auto accident caused by the negligence of another, contact Lawsuit Financial, a leading provider of lawsuit funding throughout the United States.

When Victims Of Nursing Home Negligence Seek Justice, Lawsuit Financial Can Offer Support

Nursing home neglect or abuse can happen at any facility. Often times, "neglect or abuse" results from the simple lack of interest by nursing home staff. When a loved one dies because of nursing home negligence, the family may be entitled to compensation for medical costs, funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, and other expenses.

A wrongful death lawsuit was filed against a Marysville, Washington nursing home alleging negligence and inadequate care. According to the suit, an 85-year-old man became dehydrated and malnourished shortly after being admitted to the nursing home. He fell numerous times and also developed bed sores and MRSA. He was transferred to the hospital where he subsequently died from his injuries.

An Illinois woman had made a decision to move her mother to another nursing home because of numerous problems. Sadly, she never got the chance. Her mother was one of six patients rushed to the hospital on Feb. 3, 2015, after they were allegedly sedated by a nurse. The woman died the next day; an autopsy revealed toxic levels of morphine and hydrocodone. The family said she was taking hydrocodone for back pain, but was never prescribed any morphine. The case remains open, however the family has pursued a wrongful death lawsuit against the nursing home and the nurse. A police source with knowledge of the investigation reportedly said that it was believed that the patients were sedated to lighten the workload while the facility was understaffed on the day after a snow storm. There is also evidence of inadequate record keeping at the nursing home, in terms of controlled substances.

The financial and emotional roller coaster of a lawsuit is equally as painful as the loss. Victims do not want 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. At Lawsuit Financial, we extend financial assistance to plaintiffs strapped for cash during the processing of their legal claims. This type of help is known as non-recourse lawsuit funding. There are no upfront fees, monthly payments, credit checks or employment verifications. Furthermore, repayment is only made once the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, we are not repaid. All that is need to be eligible for a lawsuit cash advance, is attorney representation and a strong case.

If you answered yes to these questions, Lawsuit Financial invites you to complete our online contact form or call our office toll free at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) to discuss your financial needs.

Worker Crushed Under One-Ton Garbage Bale

A Waste Management, Inc. employee was killed after being struck by a 2,000 pound garbage bale at a Philadelphia trash-transfer station. Authorities said the man was performing a routine inspection of his forklift near large bales of tightly packed recyclable paper when another worker, who was operating a forklift nearby, hit the bales of cardboard. The impact caused a “cascade effect," that sent one of the large bales crashing down, crushing the man. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. The accident is under investigation but the federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).

There are many unanswered questions: Was the forklift driver distracted or otherwise careless in his duties? Did Waste Management fail to provide a safe workplace and proper training to avoid serious risks or death? Did the equipment malfunction?

Distracted Bus Driver Slams Into Nine Stopped Vehicles

A bus accident often times results in a complex litigation. This could mean a longer time before victims receive compensation for their injuries. When the plaintiff is suffering from lost wages, medical expenses, ongoing living expenses, and more, pre-settlement lawsuit funding may be the answer.

Seven people were hurt, two seriously, after a Coach USA bus driver slammed into nine vehicles stopped for a red traffic signal. Among the most serious injuries are a man with a broken back and a woman with a broken pelvis. Two people had to be extricated from their vehicle by the fire department. No passengers were on board at the time.

When first questioned by the police, the bus driver claimed the brakes failed. Yet, the wreckage suggested a very hard impact. Several vehicles were pushed off the roadway and into a nearby field. An investigation determined that the bus driver was traveling 50 miles per hour and that for at least 10 seconds prior to the crash, he was not looking at the road in front of him. Police said the bus driver failed to reduce his speed, brake or take evasive action, and he struck the first vehicle at full highway speed prior to applying his brakes. But, they have not stated what may have been the cause of his distraction.

If the victims file a lawsuit against the bus driver and his employer, their case will undoubtedly take a long time to litigate. For those facing a financially difficult time, pre-settlement lawsuit funding is can be a helpful resource to enable the maximum settlement. Lawsuit Financial offers a quick and easy application process so our clients can get funding as quickly as possible. We work directly with their attorney to gather necessary case documentation to determine case strength.

Lawsuit funding services are not based on credit or work history, but rather on the strengths and merits of the case. Most importantly, a lawsuit cash advance is provided on a non-recourse bases. This means if our client does not win or settle the case, we are not repaid the cash advance.

If you have been injured as a result of a bus accident and are looking for lawsuit funding, contact Lawsuit Financial.

The pilot of a Bell 206B tour helicopter that crashed off the coast of Hawaii last week said he felt a vibration and heard a "grinding noise" before the chopper went down, according to a preliminary report. He also said shortly thereafter he heard a loud bang, then noticed the rotor rpm decreasing despite the engine still running. The pilot tried to make an emergency landing before the helicopter descended rapidly into the water, about 20 feet from the shoreline. In addition to the pilot, a family of four from Canada were on board the chopper when it crashed. The Navy said the helicopter reportedly belongs to Genesis Aviation. The company website says it conducts helicopter tours of Oahu. An investigation is ongoing, but a preliminary report indicates that the chopper may have had some kind of mechanical problem before the crash.

The helicopter was submerged in about 40 feet of water. Witnesses said a 16-year-old boy was trapped inside; he had to be cut free from his seat. Four days later he died. An autopsy report listed brain damage from drowning as the cause of death. The pilot and three other passengers were treated for minor to serious injuries.

The surviving family members have since been released from the hospital and returned to their home in Canada. They have hired an attorney to look into a possible lawsuit over their son’s death. According to the attorney, the family said they also heard the grinding noise and felt the vibrations before the chopper went down.

We don’t often hear about helicopter crash litigation, but when they do occur, it almost always results in serious injuries or deaths. Most likely, this family has significant medical expenses, in addition to the funeral and burial expenses for their son. If they do proceed with a lawsuit, they may also be able to receive a lawsuit cash advance against the pending claim.

The goal of lawsuit funding is to get people like this one through the litigation, without having pressing bills and expenses effect the value of their case. The application and approval process is quite simple – complete and one page application and we do the rest. We will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation, and typical make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. When the lawsuit successfully settles, we are repaid from the case proceeds. If the case fails, we lose our money.

When A Dire Financial Situation Is Impacting Your Lawsuit, Consider Lawsuit Funding

Traditionally, plaintiffs have had a difficult time bringing claims against insurance companies and large corporations that are well-funded and have the ability use their financial strength to their advantage. They will offer a low settlement hoping the plaintiff is in a compromised position, financially. After witnessing hundreds of seriously injured plaintiffs inhibited from the ability to pay their bills during a pending lawsuit or being forced to accept an early, less-than-favorable settlement, Mark Bello created Lawsuit Financial.

A lawsuit cash advance can not only help plaintiffs cover daily living expenses, but can be used for medical expenses and other bills directly related the claim. This is a no-risk funding option to a bank loan. First of all, there is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. Repayment is only made once the case successfully settles. If there is no recovery for the plaintiff, we do not recover the cash advance and applicable fees.

Lawsuit Financial makes seeking lawsuit funding as quick and painless as possible. Once we receive a funding application, we will contact your attorney for case documentation. We only use this information to determine case strength. If your case is approved for funding, we will prepare and send your attorney an agreement for both, he and you to sign. Once the contract is signed, cash will be disbursed within 24 – 48 hours via overnight mail or wire transfer.

Don’t let a dire financial situation deter you from seeking justice. As long as you have hired an experienced personal injury attorney and have a strong case, you already qualify for lawsuit funding. Contact Lawsuit Financial for a free, no-obligation funding consultation.

Plaintiffs Fight For Restitution With Litigation Funding

When a loved one dies due to a medical error, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation. An experience medical malpractice attorney can evaluate the circumstances and determine whether the victim has a viable case. After a lawsuit is filed, the time between the lawsuit and settlement can stretch over years - time that is financially difficult for many plaintiffs. When the ability to wait for compensation is not an option, litigation funding may be.

A New Jersey woman recently filed a lawsuit against two doctors, a physician assistant and a Cambridge Springs, Pennsylvania health care facility, alleging the wrongful death of her daughter. According to the suit, the young woman sought medical at Correct Care Solutions LLC for a cough, congestion and abdominal pain, but while at the facility, she was never examined by a physician. On Dec. 15, 2014, an exploratory laparotomy was performed, which confirmed a ruptured and necrotic appendix; she died the next day. The lawsuit seeks a jury trial, compensatory and punitive damages of more than $150,000, plus legal costs.

Bringing a medical malpractice suit holds hospitals, doctors, and other medical staff accountable when appropriate levels of care are not provided. But, hospitals have “deep pockets,” and, often, deliberately delay the legal process, forcing a low settlement on their victim because he/she can’t afford to wait out the process. Litigation funding, a cash advance based on the predicted outcome of a case, may be able to help bridge the gap between financial needs and a fair settlement. This type of financing is provided against the potential settlement of the case. That means there is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments.

The application process is quick and easy. If the case is reviewed and appears winnable, approval and funding can be available within 24 - 48 hours. There is no risk to the client because funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning that the funding company accepts 100% of the risk. If the case wins, the funds are paid back at the time of settlement, but if the plaintiff loses, the repayment is waived completely.

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 litigation funding, contact Lawsuit Financial or complete our online contact form. Don’t let the litigation process wreak havoc on your financial situation. Litigation funding ensures that you can fight for restitution for as long as it takes to win.

Litigation Funding May Make Sense In The Bottom Line Of Your Case

We all are aware that thousands of innocent people suffer from a personal injury every year, but no one can imagine a litigant’s dilemma until they are personally affected. Depending on the type and the severity of the injury, medical expenses can reach thousands of dollars or more, pain and suffering can last years, and some injuries can put a victim out of work for life. A personal injury lawsuit often takes months or years to resolve, but during this time the bills must be paid. In order to avoid foreclosure and hounding creditors, plaintiffs may consider settling for less than full case value. A better option to stay the course financially until justice is served, is to apply for litigation funding.

All that is needed to qualify for a lawsuit cash advance is a case with merit and attorney representation. Unlike a traditional bank loan, there are no monthly payments, no credit checks or employment verification, and the cash advance never shows up on your credit report. Additionally, litigation funding is risk-free; there is no obligation to repay the advance if the case is lost. Applying for funding requires a simple online application. Next, we contact your attorney for case documentation in order to qualify you for funding. If approved, you and your attorney will sign a contract detailing the funding agreement. There is no need to worry about confusing text; the terms and conditions are clearly defined, but Lawsuit Financial will go over everything first. We also advise our clients to only take a cash advance for the amount absolutely necessary; a request for additional funding can be made later, if needed. Once the contract is signed, we will direct deposit or wire transfer the funds within 24 – 48 hours so you ca start paying your bills immediately.

When you need fast cash, litigation funding could allow you to live comfortably until the settlement check arrives in the mail. It can also make a real difference in the bottom line of your case. You owe it to yourself to check it out. Call Lawsuit Financial for a free, no-obligation consultation or click here to apply online.

Car Crashes Increase Dramatically When Roadways Are Wet

Former Miss New Jersey, and current SNJ Today anchor, Cara McCollum was critically injured in a car crash on a New Jersey highway. State police said Ms. McCollum was northbound on Route 55 in Pittsgrove Township when her vehicle spun off the roadway and hit a tree. The car spun again and hit two more trees before landing in an embankment. McCollum was transported to the hospital in critical condition. Although the crash is still under investigation, police believe speed and the wet roadway were contributing factors. Ms. McCollum was not wearing a seat belt.

Wet weather conditions may be unavoidable, but it is still the responsibility of every motorist to take the necessary precautions to avoid an accident.

1. Slow down! It takes longer to stop or adjust in wet weather. Reducing your speed can decrease the chances of your car sliding out of control.

2. Defog your windows. Rain will quickly cause your windshield to fog up.

3. Avoid slamming on the brakes. Tires have fewer grips on wet roads, so it takes a longer distance to stop.

4. Don’t tailgate. Your visibility is reduced in rain, so increase your following distance.

5. Use your headlights. Not only do they help you see the road, but they’ll help other drivers see you.

6. Take extra precaution when passing large trucks. The spray created by their large tires reduces your vision.

7. If you begin to hydroplane, do not brake or turn suddenly. Such maneuvers can throw you into a slide and cause an accident. Ease off the gas and steer straight ahead until your steering returns to normal.

If a driver is involved in an accident due to the negligence of another, they have the legal right to file a lawsuit against the careless driver for damages incurred. This can include medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and out of pocket expenses related to the accident. In addition to the physical pain from serious injuries, the victim may suffer mental and financial strain caused by a lack of income. Once a plaintiff has filed a lawsuit and entered into the litigation process, a lawsuit cash advance may be an excellent decision.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against the future proceeds of the case. It is a means to ease the financial burden and give the plaintiff's attorney the time needed to obtain full case value. The application process take less than five minutes. Next, case documentation is obtained from the plaintiff’s attorney. If your case qualifies, Lawsuit Financial will provide a lawsuit cash advance without considering credit score or employment history; we can often approve applications in as little as 24 hours.

Suffering injuries or the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship. If you don't have the financial ability to wait out the litigation process for a settlement or verdict in your auto accident lawsuit, consider lawsuit funding. Apply online or call Lawsuit Financial for a free, no-obligation consultation. Our experienced and professional lawsuit funding staff is available to answer your questions and help you understand the legal finance process.

Make The Wait A Little Easier With Litigation Funding

Any act of negligence -- auto accident, medical malpractice, inadequate care, or defective product -- that results in death, is a potential wrongful death claim. Damages can include loss of income, medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. A wrongful death attorney can help family members seek the compensation deserved. Unfortunately, a wrongful death claim can be a long, drawn out legal process. For example, it must be proven that a doctor’s performance was below the minimum standard of professional conduct. In a defective product case, the defendant might allege that the victim did not use the product with the intended use, thereby contributing to his/her own death. The insurance company will continuously deny, delay, and defend the claim. This often places a significant financial burden on the family. As the bills mount, plaintiffs may feel the pressure to settle too soon, for too little; the exact situation the insurance company hopes will happen. So how do plaintiffs pay their bills if they do not have access to resources that would keep them stable until a verdict is delivered? Litigation funding is often times the best solution.

Here’s how it works. Once a plaintiff completes an online funding application, Lawsuit Financial will begin the review process by contacting the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation. Approvals are based on the strength of the case, alone; whether a plaintiff qualifies has nothing to do with his/her credit standing or job status. Once a case is approved for funding, we draft a contract for signatures, then wire transfer the funds to the plaintiff. When the case settles, and not before, we are repaid from the proceeds of the settlement. If the case is lost, the plaintiff keeps the cash advance, no string attached.

Lawsuit Financial understands the urgency for most plaintiffs which is why we can typically approve an application for funding within 24 – 48 hour. Let us remove the financial pressure to settle early and inexpensively and allow your attorney the time he/she needs to get obtain the fairest possible result. Call us today to see how litigation funding can make a real difference in the bottom line of your case. You owe it to yourself to check it out.

Litigation Funding Supports Family During Wrongful Death Lawsuit

There is nothing more painful and life altering than experiencing the unexpected death of a loved one. Losing the support, companionship, and financial security can impact your life greatly. When it is determined that the accident was caused by the negligence of someone else, the legal concept of wrongful death comes into play. While there is no amount of money that will ever make up for the loss of a family member, fair compensation and future stability is what you and your family deserve. To obtain the justice you deserve requires the help of an experienced attorney who can thoroughly investigate and win the case. Sadly, insurance companies will do everything they can to deny and devalue a claim. This is one of the reasons a wrongful death lawsuit can take much longer than many victims can financially bear. That is where litigation funding can help.

A widow has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a truck driver and his employer alleging negligence. According to the claim, her husband was rear-ended by a speeding flatbed truck while he waited at a stop sign. Police found no evidence that the truck driver ever attempted to apply the brakes. The lawsuit seeks damages up to $1 million for funeral and burial expenses, loss of inheritance, loss of companionship, pain and suffering and mental anguish. The deceased was the sole breadwinner for his family of five.

A financially desperate plaintiff is not in a favorable position regarding settlement negotiations; this person will often settle for too little, too soon. If this widow is suffering financial hardship during her pending lawsuit, a better option would be applying for litigation funding. With a lawsuit cash advance, the family can focus on rebuilding their lives and finishing the litigation without worrying about their finances.

At Lawsuit Financial, we know time is of the essences. Therefore, we make our application and approval process as quick and easy as possible, with no credit checks or employment verification. Once we receive an application, funding approval can be determined is as little as 24 hours. Best of all, our cash advances are provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning you don’t have to pay us back unless you are successful in winning your case.

Do not resolve your case for less than full value because of pressing financial need. Call or visit us online to apply for no-risk litigation funding.

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. Simply complete our online application or call our office for a free, no-obligation consultation.

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.

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.

Post-Settlement Lawsuit Funding: Fast Cash For Your Settled Case

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.

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.

Cause of Deadly Crossover Accident In Wentzville, MO Still Under Investigation

Three people are dead and one is in critical condition following a crash on Highway 61 in Wentzville. Investigators said that after a 1995 Ford Escort struck the rear of a 1996 Acura, the Acura traveled across the median before being struck broadside by a 2010 Ford Escape. The driver of the Acura and a child passenger were pronounced dead at the scene. Another infant in the Acura died at the hospital the next morning. Drivers of the Escort and Escape suffered minor injuries. Investigators are still working to determine what caused the accident.

Auto accidents can leave their mark on victims for the rest of their lives —physically, emotionally and financially. Some may be left with short-term medical expenses while others will face life-long bills. Others may be faced with lost wages. When the crash causes death, family members will be faced with funeral and burial expenses. For these reasons, and more, the negligent driver should be held accountable and the victims should be entitled to seek compensation for their injuries.

Drunk Driving Suspected In Fatal Highway Crash

A young mother of three died in a fatal auto accident at the hands of a suspected drunk driver. According to police, a 24-year-old was driving a 2003 Ford pickup truck in the eastbound lane when he went into oncoming traffic hitting a 2001 Chevy Lumina head-on. The force of the impact caused the Lumina to spin, hitting a 2002 Ford Escort, driven by 65-year-old woman. The deceased woman was a passenger in the Lumina. She died at the scene. The driver of the vehicle she was riding in was taken to the hospital in critical condition while the driver of the Escort suffered a broken ankle. The driver of the pick-up was also treated for non-life threatening injuries. The state patrol said alcohol was detected on the breath of the pick-up truck driver and witnesses told officers he was driving aggressively, attempting to pass in a no passing zone. After being released from the hospital, he will be taken into custody on suspicion of criminal vehicular homicide.

Injuries caused by drunk driving are frequently the subject of civil suits. While drunk drivers can face serious criminal charges, they can also face civil liability if they are sued by their victims. When someone is injured, or has lost a loved one, due to a drunk driver, it is important to consult an experienced auto accident attorney. A civil suit may be the best course of action to hold the negligent party accountable and for the family to seek compensation for damages. But, a lawsuit such as this will most likely take months, if not years, to settle. The deceased woman’s family is already struggling to find the financial resources to travel from the Philippines to make funeral arrangements and determine care for her children. If they proceed with a lawsuit, they may want to consider litigation funding.

The team at Lawsuit Financial knows how difficult this can be, how frustrating it is to negotiate with an insurance company that will attempt to convince you to settle for less than case value, and the temptation of that low settlement when you are strapped for cash. Litigation 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. With litigation funding, the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. There is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. The application takes less than five minutes; approvals are often within 24 – 48 hours. Litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if you lose, repayment is excused.

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. We are one of the country's most experienced providers of legal funding services.

Our sympathies go out to the victims and family members of this suspected drunk driving accident. We hope for the day when news stories like this are rare instead of all too commonplace.

Convenient Store Found Liable for Slip and Fall On Ice

The winter months typically bring some snowfall and freezing temperatures. While such weather makes for poor driving conditions, it also results in slippery sidewalks, parking lots and other walking surfaces. Although some accidents are unavoidable, many can be directly attributed to carelessness on the part of the property owner, such as failure to remove hazards on the property or to warn against known dangers. A poorly maintained surface can lead to a slip-and-fall injury.

A lawsuit brought against a convenience store has reached a settlement agreement according to the plaintiff's lawyer. The lawsuit stems from a slip and fall accident that occurred in January 2012. As the plaintiff was walking to the convenient store to pay for her gas, she slipped and fell on an accumulated patch of ice. She suffered a fractured hip that required surgery. The lawsuit alleged negligence on the part of the store, which is attached to the gas station. After a two-day jury trial, her attorney was able to prove that the store owner was negligent for allowing the dangerous condition to exist on the property and not warning visitors about the hazard. The woman was awarded $200,000. While the settlement was a victory for the plaintiff, it took over three years to achieve.

The woman undoubtedly suffered financial hardship with her medical expenses and the inability to return to work. Many plaintiffs, when faced with such a burden, feel tempted to settle for the first offer by the insurance company, which is much less than they deserve. A better option is to stay the course with slip and fall lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit Financial provides a lawsuit cash advance to plaintiffs to help them through financial hardships until their case settles or reaches a resolution. Unlike a traditional bank loan, we do not require credit or employment history in our approval process. Our only concern is the strength of your case and the likelihood of a positive outcome. Additionally, we require no upfront tees or monthly payments. We are only repaid once the case successfully settles. If you lose your lawsuit, no repayment is required.

If you are injured while on another person's property, don't be denied your right to fair compensation. Fight back with lawsuit funding from Lawsuit Financial. Begin by completing our online funding application or call our office toll-free at 1-877-377-7848. Once approved, we will wire transfer or direct deposit the money in as little as 24 hours. Remember, lawsuit funding is absolutely risk-free; if you don’t settle, you owe us nothing.

An Auto Accident Can Shatter Your Life, But Lawsuit Funding Can Help Put It Back On Track

Millions of people are involved in personal injury accidents every year. Sometimes, the impact can be devastating, leaving victims helpless and vulnerable.

When a plaintiff is in a compromising financial position, lawsuit funding may be the solution to help cover immediate expenses.

Lawsuit Financial is a pioneer in the legal funding industry. With almost 17 years’ experience, we understand that the lack of capital can force a good case into a premature settlement denying the plaintiff of just compensation.

Four Family Members Died in California Mobile Home Fire

Neighbors of a mobile home in Big Bear Lake called 911 to report a fire early Christmas morning. When the first deputy arrived, the home was fully engulfed and the family's injured father was outside. He said his family was still inside but he was unable to get them out due to the blaze. Minutes later, firefighters arrived. They crawled inside and were able to pull out the man’s wife, but she had already died. Before they were able to rescue three children, a 6-month-old girl, a 3-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl, the roof collapsed. The father was airlifted to a hospital for treatment with burns, cuts and smoke inhalation injuries. According to an initial investigation, the blaze may have been caused by an electrical issue. However, the investigation remained ongoing. It is unclear whether the home had working smoke detectors. Big Bear Lake is a small city in the San Bernardino Mountains about 90 miles east of Los Angeles.

According a government study, almost three times more people die in a mobile fire than in conventional homes. Mobile home fires are often caused by inferior wiring and poorly installed butane and propane gas lines. Because there is no attic to burn towards and ultimately burn out, the fire moves horizontally from room to room. The design of a mobile home and the materials used in its build allows the fire to spreader quicker cutting down the time an occupant has to escape.

Premises liability may be an issue; the home may not have been safe for residents. If there were violations of fire code regulations, a failure to provide proper safety equipment and/or adequate ingress or egress, this would be negligence. The surviving victims will want to speak to an attorney experienced in premise liability cases. Even if it is determined that a case for negligence can be proven, a settlement or verdict may take months, even years. The survivor may find it difficult to pay for funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses, and pay for a new home. If so, Lawsuit Financial may be able to help.

Lawsuit Financial is a leading provider of litigation funding services throughout the United States. We work with clients that have been injured or have lost loved ones resulting from fire accidents. Applying for a lawsuit cash advance is easy and free; the application can be completed in less than five minutes online or over the phone. Our underwriters will evaluate the case to determine if funding can be extended. If approved, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours by check or wire. Repayment is made when the case settles. All funding is non-recourse, meaning that if for any reason there is no recovery on the case, then no repayment of the cash advance is required.

If you are involved in a premises liability injury case and need cash now, contact Lawsuit Financial immediately. Taking away the financial pressure to settle a case too early for too little will permit victims to wait out the process and achieve fair and equitable case results. Additionally, Lawsuit Financial would like to urge everyone to have working smoke detectors in every room of their home and an emergency evacuation plan in place in the event of a fire.

Speed Factors Into Crash That Killed Teen

Teen and young adult drivers have caused more auto accidents than any other age group. They are not only inexperienced, but their immaturity makes them more likely to take risks behind the wheel. A speeding driver, especially and inexperienced one, is less able to negotiate turns and to steer around hazards. The faster a vehicle is going, the longer it will take to slow down or stop. It only takes one moment of inattentiveness at just the wrong time for an accident to occur.

An 18-year-old female was killed in a car crash after the driver lost control at a curve in the road. The vehicle slammed through three trees, a light pole, and a residential gate before coming to a rest in the front of a home. The woman was a backseat passenger in a silver Porsche driven by another teen. The driver and a front seat passenger were taken to a local hospital with head injuries. No other cars were involved in the crash. Key Biscayne police believe speed was a contributing factor. An investigation is ongoing.

Every year thousands of young adults die in traffic accidents—often as a result of the driver’s excessive speed, lack of experience, or inattention. They leave us shaking our heads because we know these types of crashes are preventable. If a lawsuit is pursued, waiting for a settlement can take a long time, putting the family in financial ruin. Suffering injuries are the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; don’t succumb to a financial hardship as well. Lawsuit funding may be an option.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against the future proceeds of the case. This immediate funding source allows a plaintiff to take care of their financial obligations while giving their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice. The application process is quick, easy and -- it's free. If you are approved for funding, cash can be available in as little as 24 hours. Call Lawsuit Financial or apply on line.

Litigation Funding: A Hassle-Free Cash Source for Drunk Driving Victims

Drunk driving is one of the most common causes of an auto accident. Through no fault of their own, and with no warning, innocent people have been injured, or a family has lost a loved one, due to a drunk driver. Unfortunately, our legal process unintentionally victimizes the victims and their families all over again.

Although some court cases can be settled quickly, many drag out for months, even years. The longer a case takes, the more the victim is at risk of financial hardship, especially in the event of lost income. In such a situation, plaintiffs may need financial assistance. The best way to resolve financial problems until a settlement is reached might be through a lawsuit cash advance.

Litigation funding is a hassle-free cash source to help plaintiffs stay financial afloat while waiting for a fair and equitable settlement. Otherwise, they may feel pressured to settle a valuable case for pennies on the dollar solely out of desperation. Plaintiffs can apply for funding in less than five minutes; the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. There is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. Once approved for a cash advance the money can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case. If the case is lost, repayment is excused.

For any plaintiff who feels they cannot financially wait to seek justice in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, litigation funding may be the solution. If you have questions about how litigation funding works, call Lawsuit Financial, the pro-plaintiff legal finance company. We can help determine if litigation funding is the best solution for you to regain control of your life and finances.

Construction Workers Injured When Scaffolding Collapses

Millions of construction workers rely on scaffolding frequently in their line of work. When workers are not properly trained and/or the scaffolding is not erected according to regulations, construction workers are exposed to numerous hazards.

Two men were seriously injured after a scaffolding collapsed while they were working on a hotel project in Dearborn, MI. Both workers were taken to an area hospital in serious but stable condition. The cause of the scaffolding collapse is unknown at this time.

Under the workers’ compensation system, an employee agrees not to sue the employer in exchange for the right to collect workers’ compensation benefits (primarily the payment of medical bills and lost wages) while recovering from injuries. This is usually a no-fault system; regardless of whether the worker was negligent or not, he/she may collect workers compensation benefits. In trade, the worker gives up the right to a trial by jury. Many people also think that the receipt of workers compensation prevents the possibility of a lawsuit for pain and suffering. That is not always the case. Workers’ compensation does not excuse an employer’s gross negligence; it also does not excuse the negligence of a third party. To fully understand whether they are entitled to receive more than workers’ compensation, workers should seek the advice of an experienced attorney. A lawsuit may be the only way to recover financial damages against the wrongdoer.

Because the legal process is complicated and involves many steps, it can sometimes take months, and, in some cases, years, to culminate. When you are seriously injured, need money to help pay medical bills, replace lost wages, etc., Lawsuit Financial can provide a lawsuit cash advance to manage your finances while your case winds through the legal system. The primary objective in lawsuit funding is to remove financial pressure to settle early and cheap. Funding is based solely on case strength so if you are unable to return to work or have poor credit, it doesn’t matter. Additionally, there are no payments until the case settles. The funding transaction is risk free because the advance is not repaid unless the lawsuit settles.

If you or someone you know sustained a serious injury in a scaffolding accident and have concerns about paying the bills, a lawsuit cash advance may be your answer. Contact Lawsuit Financial.

Auto Accident Lawsuit Funding Provides Financial Support to Injury Victims

When an auto accident is directly related to the negligence of another, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover medical expenses, lost wages and even compensation for pain and suffering. Often times, the wait will extend to your immediate financial needs especially if injuries left you unable to work for any length of time, or indefinitely. Filing a lawsuit against the negligent party and their insurance company will, more often than not, take months or years to settle, seriously impacting your finances.

Unfortunately, life won’t wait for your lawsuit to settle and you should not settle for pennies on the dollar because of pressing financial needs. While Lawsuit Financial cannot remove the physical and emotional burden that is caused by a serious personal injury or wrongful death, we can reduce the financial burden with a lawsuit cash advance.

Lawsuit Financial helps plaintiffs level the playing field with well-financed defendants without compromising the case. Lawsuit funding differs from a traditional bank loan because there are no credit checks or employment verification, and because it is a non-recourse cash advance, there is no risk to the plaintiff. Repayment is only made once the plaintiff successfully settles. If the case is lost, repayment is waived in its entirety. That's right; you win or the cash advance is yours to keep - free!

In order to be eligible for lawsuit funding, you need attorney representation and a strong case; that’s it! The process begins with the completion of a one-page funding application. Once received, Lawsuit Financial will contact your attorney for documentation to determine the strength of your case. In most situations, cases can be evaluated and funded within 24 - 48 hours. Once approved and a contract is prepared and signed, the lawsuit cash advance can be received via wire transfer or overnight mail, often the same day.

If you need financial staying power to assure your best chance of full compensation for your claim, call Lawsuit Financial at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) or visit us online to learn how we can make it possible to fight for your rights no matter how long it takes.

Lawsuit Funding Helps Plaintiffs Avoid Accumulating A Dangerous Amount of Debt

Since most plaintiffs enter the legal process with little or no familiarity with the proceedings, they underestimate the time and effort required for the case to be successful. They also don’t realize what affect their finances have on their case. Financial strain is a common problem for plaintiffs. The stress of medical bills, car repairs, household expenses, and the necessities of everyday life can mean fighting a financial battle along with a legal one. Many times, they will be fighting against a defendant with the financial means to keep the case going for as long as necessary. Bill collectors and creditors won’t wait patiently for the lawsuit to conclude. The longer the defendant stalls, the more financial pressure is put on the plaintiff to accept an unfair offer just to pay the bills.

While there are many solutions that plaintiffs feel can help their financial struggles, such as borrowing from family or friends, using credit cards or obtaining a bank loan, these usually don’t fit the needs of a plaintiff. A better option is to secure a lawsuit cash advance from Lawsuit Financial.

With lawsuit funding, the plaintiff can take care of personal financial obligations without jeopardizing their case or credit. Lawsuit funding is a cash advance against your pending claim. One of its unique features is that the case serves as collateral. There are no monthly payments and repayment is only expected once a settlement is reached. Furthermore, if the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is completely waived.

Lawsuit Financial offers a simple, one-page application, so plaintiffs can get the money they need quickly and focus on their lawsuit instead of their finances. If approved, the money can be used any way the plaintiff wishes, although it is typically for paying the mortgage/rent, auto payments, medical expenses, and other financial necessities. Call us today for a free, no-obligation consultation. Our experienced, professional staff understands your situation and will do our best to get you the financial assistance you need within 24 – 48 hours.

Slip and Fall Plaintiffs Take Steps to Financial Freedom with the Help of Lawsuit Financial

Have you been injured in a slip and fall accident? Do you have a personal injury case pending? Are you in need of cash to help pay bills and stay financially stable until your case settles? If you answered yes to these questions, Lawsuit Financial may be your financial lifeline.

In February 2015, a man sustained serious injuries to his spine and lower back after falling in a restaurant parking lot. He suffered a herniated disc in his lower back and also underwent spinal fusion surgery in the lower regions of his spine. Despite several surgeries, he is left with permanent disabilities and restricted in his range of motion; he struggles to perform many daily activities. According to his pending premise liability lawsuit, the man slipped on an untreated patch of ice in the restaurant’s parking lot. The claim also alleges that the lot was not well-lit; several lights were burned out or missing. He is seeking an undisclosed amount.

It is not uncommon for a slip and fall claim to take a year or more to make its way through the litigation process. Unfortunately, timing is important for victims, especially if faced with lost wages and mounting medical expenses. Lawsuit Financial has helped thousands of personal injury plaintiffs by providing a lawsuit cash advance until their settlement or verdict is reached. When we invest in a lawsuit, we only look at the strength of the case. We don’t care about credit history, collateral or employment status; we also do not require monthly payments. While there are no contingencies on how the money is spent, it is typically used to pay the mortgage/rent, medical bills and daily household expenses.

If you are the victim of a slip and fall accident and experiencing financial problems while waiting for your case to settle, don’t allow defendants to use 3D tactics - deny, delay, and defend - as a means of discouraging you from pursuing compensation. As soon as you file your case in court, with the help of an attorney, you’re eligible to apply for lawsuit funding. The application takes less than five minutes to complete. We will, then, contact your attorney for case documentation. Once received, we usually make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment of the cash advance is made from the proceeds of the settlement, but if you don’t win your lawsuit, the repayment is waived.

Call Lawsuit Financial today to learn more and to begin the steps to immediate financial freedom.

Lawsuit Funding Let’s Plaintiffs Stand Up For Their Rights, No Matter How Long It Takes

It is not uncommon after becoming the victim of an auto accident that you do not understand your legal rights or where to turn to for help. While an attorney may not always be needed when it comes to injury and medical damages it is recommended to consult one prior to speaking with the claims adjuster. A personal injury attorney can help determine your rights and a potential settlement value on your case. But, seeking fair compensation and justice can be a long process. The insurance company will often drag its feet hoping you will settle for less than full case value. When you experience financial duress due to mounting ordinary and extraordinary expenses and possibly loss of income, any offer is tempting. Injury victims should never be forced to accept a less-than-fair settlement because of pressing financial needs. When faced with foreclosure or credit risks, consider lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against your pending claim. The goal of lawsuit funding is to get the plaintiff through the lengthy litigation without having pressing bills and expenses effect the value of their case. All that is necessary to qualify for funding is attorney representation and a case with merit. Lawsuit funding has many benefits:
• No long approval process!
• No upfront fees or hidden charges!
• No monthly payments!
• No need for a credit check!
• No employment requirements!
• It is 100% risk-free. If you don't win, you owe nothing!
• Approval can be made in less than 48 hours!
• The money can be used for anything you wish, but typically goes towards medical expenses, mortgage/rent and daily household needs.

After reviewing the documents, if funding is approved, a contract will be prepared for signatures. Once the contract is executed, funds can be deposited directly into the plaintiff’s bank account or sent via overnight mail within 24- 48 hours. When finances are under control, it is much easier to focus on healing while your attorney fights your case. In the unlikely event you do not successfully win your case, you are under no obligation to repay the case advance.

Don’t be afraid to stand up to the insurance companies and stand up for your rights, no matter how long it takes. Protect your rights by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Then, if you need financial help to stay “in the game” in order to pursue your case for the maximum settlements you deserve, call Lawsuit Financial.

Lawsuit Financial Helps Medical Malpractice Victims Secure Litigation Funding

When someone suffers harm or emotional trauma due to the malpractice of a medical professional, the victim may be entitled to compensation for injury-related medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering. A medical malpractice attorney can review the facts and help determine if the victim has a viable medical malpractice lawsuit.

After a lawsuit is filed, the attorney will need time to recover full compensation. This could take years especially because medical personnel are usually unwilling to accept blame for their gross negligence and they hire a high-powered legal team to delay the lawsuit as long as possible. Depending on the extent of the injuries, this leaves many plaintiffs without funds to cover even basic living expenses, especially those already living paycheck to paycheck.

At this crucial time, litigation funding can be a powerful tool. A lawsuit cash advance ensures that your bills and expenses are covered until your case reaches a settlement. Lawsuit Financial provides their clients with non-recourse funding which means you only repay the cash advance once your case settles. If your attorney is not successful in winning your case, you are not obligated to repay us. We also do not charge any out of pocket fees, and there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. All that matters when considering an application for funding is the strength of the case.

No one wants, or expects, to be the victim of malpractice, but when it happens, the financial implication can be overwhelming during the litigation process. For financial peace of mind, consider litigation funding through Lawsuit Financial. To obtain more information on how this financial vehicle can benefit you, complete our online application or call our toll-free number at 1-877-377-7848.

Lawsuit Financial Provides Auto Accident Lawsuit Funding When There Is A Delay In Settlement

After the accident, the insurance company will usually prefer to pay you a settlement amount in return for your agreement not to pursue a lawsuit in court. It saves them the costs of defending the case. Sadly, they will usually offer less than the full value of your claim.

Jury Awards $5 Million in Wrongful Death Claim Alleging Inadequate Supervision At Assisted Living Facility

A jury recently awarded $5 million to the family of a 90-year-old woman who died after ingesting detergent at a Detroit-area senior living facility in 2012. Willie Mae Henderson suffered from dementia and was place in The Fountains at Franklin, a Watermark Retirement Communities facility because the facility was promoted as a safe place for residents with dementia and promised to have adequate staffing and supervision. On December 1, 2012, five weeks after Ms. Henderson moved in, she took dishwasher detergent from a kitchen cabinet and ingested it. The incident occurred when a caregiver had been on break, leaving one other caregiver to supervise 17 residents. When the caregiver who was on break returned, he saw Ms. Henderson alone in the dining room. Her head was leaning back and her lips were swollen. She was admitted to the hospital with severe chemical burns to her mouth, esophagus, throat and stomach. A doctor determined that Ms. Henderson was not a candidate for surgery based upon her age and condition. She died 13 days later; the medical examiner determined that the death was caused by the toxic dishwasher detergent.

The lawsuit alleged that the facility was negligent in providing inadequate supervision, failing to keep the cabinets that stored the detergent secure enough to prevent patients from gaining access, and failing to secure the lid on the detergent in the event the cabinet was left unlocked. The defendant argued that either the decedent (who had arthritis), or some unknown person, forcibly tore a hinge off the cabinet to get access to the chemical. The claim sought damages include compensation for her pain and suffering from the time of injury until her death, the loss of society and companionship suffered by her family due to her loss, and payment of funeral and burial expenses. The jury reached the verdict after a seven-day trial and less than three hours of deliberation. The family was awarded exactly the amount sought.

When we place a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility, we expect them to be cared for and protected. Alzheimer’s and dementia patients require extra care because they tend to wander, become disoriented, and lost. When we hear stories like this, it makes us all wonder about the safety of our aging loved ones.

Anytime someone loses a loved one, it is devastating both emotionally and mentally. It may be shattering financially, as well. The financial and emotional roller coaster of a lawsuit is equally as painful as the loss. If you or a loved one suffered physical or emotional injuries because an assisted living facility or nursing home was negligent or failed to fulfill its care obligations to you and your family, you may have grounds for a nursing home negligence case.

If you are seeking lawsuit funding in an assisted living abuse or negligence case, begin by completing our lawsuit funding application. Lawsuit Financial provides non-recourse funding to help financially strapped plaintiffs during their pending lawsuit. 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.

Fatal Auto-Pedestrian Accident in New York May Be A Case for Lawsuit Funding

On December 6, police responded to a fatal auto-pedestrian crash in Clifton Park, New York. Upon arrival at the scene, they found a 30-year-old man through the windshield of a BMW. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the BMW was not injured; there were no signs that she was intoxicated or impaired. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

If the motorist is determined to have been at fault, she could be held responsible for the pedestrian’s wrongful death. A wrongful death attorney can ensure that the family's rights are protected and decide the best course of action in recovering the maximum compensation for funeral and burial expenses, anticipated and future lifetime earnings, loss of love, care and companionship, and other damages related to this pedestrian accident.

While the family may eventually receive a financial settlement to compensate them for their loss, they may experience a shortfall in their finances that could lead to a significant financial hardship. The last thing they should do is agree to an early settlement for less than full case value. A service called lawsuit funding can help ease the financial burden until a settlement or verdict is achieved. The plaintiff, then has the luxury of waiting out the litigation process.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance meaning if the plaintiff loses his/her case, the lawsuit funding is excused and the money does not have to be repaid. The only eligibility requirements for funding are attorney representation and a strong case. There are no application fees, credit checks, employment history verifications, or monthly payments. Once an application is completed and case documentation is received, our underwriters will review the case for funding. If approved, we can wire transfer or overnight mail the cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. It really is that simple!

If you are seriously injured or lose a loved one in a pedestrian-auto accident that was not your fault (or, was only partially your fault), you may be able to recover damages for medical bills, loss wages, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of financial support, and funeral expenses. Contact a personal injury attorney who specializes in handling pedestrian accidents. Once your case is filed, if you are struggling financially, don’t let bills pile up and ruin your credit and don’t give in to corporate tactics pressuring you to settle for less than you deserve. Call Lawsuit Financial or visit us online for more information or to complete and application.

Lawsuit Funding: Is It The Right Choice For Your Financial Needs?

Life is fairly uncertain; no one could ever anticipate a personal injury from an auto accident, slip and fall or medical negligence. When it does happen, the results can be physically, emotionally, and financially devastating. Legal recourse is often sought to obtain compensation for lost wages, medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. But, as anyone who has ever been in a personal injury lawsuit knows the process can be lengthy, often times taking years to settle. During this time, many victims are unable to meet their immediate financial obligations. Powerful defendants will take advantage of this, offering lowball settlement in hopes that the plaintiff will settle out of necessity for immediate cash. Rather than being shortchanged for a fair settlement simply to pay the bills, plaintiffs can apply for lawsuit funding.

Unlike a traditional bank loan, lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance based solely on the strength of the case. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Before choosing a funding company, it is important for plaintiffs to weigh all the options. The right company can help plaintiffs understand lawsuit cash advances and determine the best funding solution to fit the plaintiffs’ needs. It is important to compare rates, understand terms and conditions and clearly understand the repayment terms. The lowest rate may not always be the best deal. Keep in mind that a reputable company provides funding on a non-recourse basis meaning no repayment is required until a settlement is reached. In a situation where the plaintiff loses the case, the cash advance does not need to be repaid. It is also important to note that despite what some funding companies may say, a lawsuit cash advance is expensive. Plaintiffs should only borrow enough to necessary expenses - the mortgage, utility bills, medical expenses.

Applying for lawsuit funding takes less than five minutes online or over the phone. Once the application is received, a funding representative will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation. If the plaintiff is approved for funding, money is made available within 24 – 48 hours via direct deposit or a check sent via overnight mail.

Lawsuit Financial hopes we have provided you some valuable information to assist you in making the best lawsuit funding decision possible. If you need financial help during your pending claim, call our office toll-free at 1-877-377-7848 or complete our online application; see if we are the right choice for you.

Medical Device To Prevent Pulmonary Embolism Linked To Serious Injuries and Deaths

The Bard G2 IVC filter is a small, spider-like device implanted into the inferior vena cava to catch blood clots before they reach the heart or lungs. The main purpose of this medical device is to prevent pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal. Unfortunately, the filter has caused significant injury in a growing number of patients, and has been linked to multiple deaths. Many patients allege that the device is prone to puncture the vein, move out of position or fracture, potentially sending small pieces to the heart or lungs.

A growing number of lawsuits have been filed with the latest case by a Missouri woman who suffered severe injuries when a strut on the Bard G2 filter fractured and lodged in her back. The complaint describes how a Bard G2 IVC filter implanted to prevent a pulmonary embolism fractured into multiple pieces and became lodged in her back. The lawsuit alleges that the G2 filter is defectively designed, despite claims from the manufacturer that it had “enhanced fracture resistance” and “increased migration resistance.” The complaint also claims that Bard failed to conduct adequate clinical testing to ensure the device was safe and effective. The problems were discovered when the IVC filter was removed. As a result of the injury, the woman contends that she not only faces significant medical expenses, but has endured considerable pain and suffering, suffers from permanent disability and has diminished enjoyment in her daily life. She is seeking both compensatory and punitive damages.

Lawsuits like this one take a long time to resolve; there is a significant gap in time between the filing of the lawsuit and its resolution or trial. The discovery and evidence gathering process is difficult and time consuming. Waiting for a fair and equitable settlement or a jury trial in hard fought litigation like this will likely take years. In the meantime, the Missouri woman will still need to pay a mountain of medical bills on top or her ordinary bills and expenses.

For thousands of people injured by defective devices and pharmaceuticals, lawsuit funding has proven an invaluable resource for plaintiffs who are cash-strapped and struggling to stay afloat as they wait for their case to resolve. It is especially helpful to victims unable to return to work due to serious or debilitating injuries.

Lawsuit funding removes the pressure to settle early and inexpensively and allows the attorney the time he/she needs to get the litigant the fairest possible result. One of the main advantages of lawsuit funding over credit cards or bank loans is its non-recourse nature. Repayment is made once the case settles, but if the lawsuit is unsuccessful, there is no obligation to repay the cash advance. Furthermore, there is no need for a credit check or employment verification, and approval is usually within 24 – 48 hours.

If you’ve been injured by a defective medical device or pharmaceuticals and have retained an attorney to represent your case, you may be eligible lawsuit funding. Contact Lawsuit Financial for a free funding consultation. Lawsuit funding may be the means to continue litigation for the justice you deserve.

Three Lawsuits Follow Fatal Auto Accident Caused By Underage Drunk Driver

Three lawsuits have now been filed against a now 20-year-old who killed two teens and injured another last year while driving "super drunk" on a Michigan highway. The fatal crash occurred on U.S. 23 in Pittsfield Township about 4 p.m. July 3, 2014, when the freeway was filled with holiday traffic. The drunk driver was headed north in a pickup truck when he crossed the median and crashed head-on into a Mercury Sable carrying the teenagers. His BAC was .22 percent, according to the lawsuits. The lawsuits also claim his parents are responsible for furnishing the alcohol that made the underage driver intoxicated, even if they didn't knowingly supply it. An attorney for one of the plaintiffs said that the teen had access to alcohol because his father brews his own beer at their home and that his parents knew or should have known that their son was an alcoholic. Each lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $25,000.

Wrongful death take time to pursue, even with the best lawyers available. The time between filing the lawsuit and its ultimate settlement could be years. Meanwhile, bills must still be paid and plaintiffs often find themselves in the unfortunate situation where they are strapped for cash. Lawsuit funding is specifically designed to help plaintiffs pay immediate bills and have money on hand for future expenses as they await case resolution and a settlement. The only requirements to be eligible for funding is attorney representation and case with merit.

Once a funding application is received, our underwriters will review case documentation provided by the plaintiff's attorney. If approved, the money can be available within 24 - 48 hours. There are no upfront cost, no credit checks and no restrictions on the money’s use. Lawsuit funding transactions are ‘non-recourse’, which means repayment is only made if, and when the lawsuit is won and settled. In the event the plaintiff loses, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety.

If you or a family member have been directly affected by an accident similar to this one and struggling financially while awaiting a settlement, why worry about money when a lawsuit cash advance would ease the immediate burden? Call Lawsuit Financial or complete an online application for a free case funding evaluation.

Slip and Fall Risks Increase During Holiday Shopping

During the busy holiday season, shoppers should be aware of the potential for slip-and-fall accidents that can occur when hazardous conditions are not quickly remedied by retail establishments or their employees. One of the most common slip and fall injuries is when a retailer leaves a slippery substance on the floor without putting up proper signage. Other dangerous conditions such as ripped or torn carpeting, changes in flooring, or scattered merchandise.

Premises liability mandates that all property owners and operators take reasonable precautions to ensure their grounds are safe for visitors and guests. Unfortunately, many take this duty lightly and fail to keep up with regular maintenance. When this basic obligation is breached, victims are able to sue for damages, but this is not always easy. It must be shown that a "dangerous condition" caused the accident and the retailer knew the dangerous condition existed.

Determining negligence requires legal expertise. Even then, business owners and their insurance companies employ deny, delay, and defend tactics. The insurance company will also work the legal system to buy as much time as possible so that they can hold onto their money hoping the victim will give up and settle for less than the value of the case. That is where lawsuit funding comes in handy.

Lawsuit funding can be a life-line for many who would have limited resources to continue litigation, let alone pay the mortgage and hospital bills. There is no need for a credit check, collateral, or employment verification because the lawsuit cash advance is provided solely on the strength of the case. One of the major advantages is that if the case is lost, or a settlement isn’t offered, the cash advance does not have to be repaid. Additionally, there are no contingencies on how the cash advance is used.

If you become embroiled in contentious litigation with a business owner and an insurance company arising from your slip and fall accident and injury, Lawsuit Financial would be more than happy to discuss what options are available when it comes to paying the bills until a settlement is reached. Once your application for funding is approved, we will deposit fund directly into your bank account or send a check overnight. Call us today, toll free, at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848).

Plaintiffs Meet Financial Needs with Lawsuit Funding!

Lawsuits take time. Insurance companies and corporate defendants count on this to force cash-strapped plaintiffs to settle early for less than full case value. Fortunately, plaintiffs with a strong case can overcome a defendant’s financial advantage with the help of Lawsuit Financial.

When someone is seriously injured due to the negligence of another, the financial burden can be overwhelming, especially if the injuries make it impossible to return to work. Very often it results in being foreclosed on or in a vehicle being repossessed, and it almost always destroys a person’s credit rating. This is in addition to the physical pain and suffering the plaintiff has endured.

As the plaintiff falls further and further behind in his/her financial obligations, he/she will often consider settling for a fraction of what a case is worth just to make ends meet. A lawsuit should never be as bad as the problem that caused it. Lawsuit funding is often the only option available to help level the playing field and promote justice for plaintiffs.

Lawsuit funding offers some distinct advantages over a traditional bank loan.
• Bank loans are credit-based while lawsuit funding is based on the strength of the case.
• Bank loans usually charge up-front fees and monthly payments while lawsuit funding companies do not charge either.
• Bank loans require employment verification. Again, lawsuit funding companies do not.
• Bank loans must be repaid no matter what while lawsuit funding companies are only repaid if, and when, the settles successfully.

If you have been seriously injured, are currently involved in a lengthy legal process, have retained an attorney, and have financial needs until your case settles, we can help you. After receiving your funding application, we will work with your attorney to obtain relevant documents. If approved, we will prepare a contract and wire funds within 24 – 48 hours.

Litigation Funding Is Often The Financial Solution In Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Whether from medical malpractice, auto accidents, product liability, and workplace fatalities, when a wrongful death occurs, the victim's family has the right to file a lawsuit.

Without financial assistance, many families may be unable to proceed with their case, but litigation funding can change all that.

Litigation funding is a financial tool that helps plaintiffs stay financial strong under justice is served and a fair and equitable verdict or settlement is reached. It removes the financial pressure to settle a valuable case too early for too little and could be a real difference maker for a case. The application process is free and easy; there are no credit checks or employment verification. Funding is based solely on the strength of the case, so there is no need for a credit check or employment verification.

Family Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Nursing Home

When a family decides to place a loved one in a nursing home, they do so with the expectation that the home will provide adequate, compassionate and ethical care. If the loved one suffers unexplained serious injuries or a sudden death, it is natural to be suspicious that abuse or negligence may have played a role.

Most of the time, what we call "neglect or abuse" results from a simple lack of nursing home staff interest. Staff does not provide for residents’ basic needs including water, food, or a clean and healthy environment. This form of neglect can also lead to more serious forms of illnesses, diseases and medical conditions. Bed sores are a typical example of conditions that are relatively easy to prevent but far too common in many nursing centers. Seniors can develop bed sores at a higher frequency due to inactivity, the thinning of skin, poor circulation, and malnutrition.

The family of a woman cared for at the Bloomfield Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the nursing home. According to the lawsuit, the nursing home staff ignored the woman's dietary needs which caused dehydration, malnutrition and weight loss, and also allowed her to develop bed sores that went untreated. The complaint also alleges that the woman developed infections and suffered injuries, including an "unexplained" arm bone fracture, while being cared for at the facility.

Preferred Care Partners Management acquired the Bloomfield Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center, as well as nine other New Mexico nursing homes in November 2012. According to The Albuquerque Journal, the New Mexico Attorney General's Office filed a lawsuit against the nursing home operator in December, claiming under-staffing at the company's New Mexico nursing homes made it impossible to provide adequate care. The family is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages in the wrongful death lawsuit.

Choosing a quality nursing home is an important decision and a thorough evaluation of potential nursing homes is necessary to help protect your loved one. If you believe that a loved one may be the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, you may be entitled to compensation. Choosing the right attorney in this situation is also a vitally important decision. If you do not know an attorney who specializes in nursing home abuse, Lawsuit Financial has excellent legal referral sources all over the country and our professional staff will locate you a top-notch legal specialist, in your city or state, within 24-48 hours. This is a free service for injury victims and their family members.

Lawsuit Financial will also devise a legal finance plan to assist victims and family members through the difficult financial issues facing them. Victims do not want 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. Strategic lawsuit funding can often be the difference between a mediocre settlement and a large, injury appropriate settlement.

Leverage Lawsuit Financials’ money to hold out for full case value. We offer free, no-obligation consultations. Should you be approved for funding, we can usually provide cash within 24- 48 hours. The best part is that we expect no payments until your case successfully settles, at which time we are repaid from the case proceeds. If the case is lost, you will owe us absolutely nothing!

When A Routine Surgical Procedure Goes Wrong Victims May Have A Medical Malpractice Case

The occurrence of a colonoscopy perforation by itself is usually not enough to establish a medical malpractice claim, as it is a generally accepted risk of the procedure. However, a doctor’s failure to promptly recognize and treat a perforated colon from a colonoscopy can give rise to liability for damages that occur as a result of any delay in treatment.
When a man checked into the hospital in July 2011, he expected a standard colonoscopy. Now he continues to suffer medical problems and is unable to return to work. Why? The doctor perforated his colon during the procedure.

The patient filed a lawsuit alleged that the doctor who performed the colonoscopy dramatically overinflated his colon, causing it to tear. It wasn’t until the man began experiencing severe pain and a CT scan was performed was the tear was detected. Follow-up surgery was required to repair it. The doctor argued that a colonoscopy carries a known risk of potential puncture, which is mentioned in the informed consent notice signed by patients. However, the jury disagreed and awarded the plaintiff $2 million.

This case shows what happens when doctors are negligent when it comes to patient care. It also shows how long medical malpractices case can take to settle. The emotional, mental and physical stress is enough to deal with; the last thing a patient needs is to worry about is how to keep up with the financial obligations. That’s where Lawsuit Financial comes in. We provide lawsuit funding to help plaintiffs withstand the litigation process and still be able to pay the bills. When the bills are paid, victims can focus on recovery and getting their life back as much as possible.

Eligibility for lawsuit funding is not contingent on credit status or the ability to work; we only care about the strength of the case. After completing an online application, one of our professional staff members will contact your attorney for case documentation. Once approved, you can receive the funds within 24-48 hours.

We may have the mechanism you need to pay your bills, keep your credit standing, and fight for your rights.

Lawsuit Funding Can Save Your Finances And Your Financial Future

Everyone knows that a lawsuit allows victims to seek compensation from the individual or corporation who wronged them. Unfortunately, the problem with our legal system is the amount of time it takes for a claim to resolve. It is not unusual to take months, even years for a case to settle and a plaintiff to receive compensation. During this time, many victims will face financial hardship due to medical expenses and loss of income. Once plaintiffs realize that they need financial help, the first thing that comes to mind is a traditional bank loan. The problem with a bank loan is the lengthy, complicated approval process; cash-strapped plaintiffs do not have time to wait. Additionally, banks usually will not fund against a lawsuit, require monthly payments (which is not good for someone already cash-strapped), and usually require good credit and employment. What most people don’t know is that there is financial assistance without the “red tape”; it’s called lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against the expected outcome of the case. This means that repayment of the cash advance is only repaid if, and when, our client wins the case or reaches an out-of-court settlement. There is no need for a credit check (your credit rating remains intact) or employment verification (if you are unable to work due to injuries, no worries), and no monthly payments (you don’t need more bills at a time like this).

Lawsuit Financial understands the financial emergency plaintiffs face so we offer a quick and easy application process; it less than five minutes to complete. Once we receive a funding application, one our representatives will consult with your attorney for case documentation to determine if you qualify for funding. The entire review and decision process can be completed as quickly as 24 – 48 hours. If approved, and you accept our funding, Lawsuit Financial will prepare a contract for signature. Then, we can direct deposit or overnight mail the funds to you. While you can use the cash anyway you wish, the money is typically meant to pay medical bills, mortgage payments, car payments, groceries, and other necessary bills.

If you are struggling to pay the bills while in a pending lawsuit, there is no reason to settle for less than full case value. Call Lawsuit Financial today and see how lawsuit funding can help you start rebuilding your life tomorrow.

Man Files Two Wrongful Death Lawsuits in Columbia, Missouri Auto Crash

A Columbia, Missouri man has filed two wrongful death lawsuits following a fatal crash that killed his wife and 9-year-old son in September. The lawsuit alleges that the defendant’s negligence behind the wheel led to their deaths.

The woman and her son were killed when the driver of a 1997 Ford Taurus crossed an intersection slamming into the Nissan Altima in which they were passengers. According to police, the Ford, traveling southbound, hit the northbound Nissan in the passenger side as the Nissan turned left. A 15-year-old with a learner's permit was driving the Altima at the time of the incident. Both drivers and four young children in the Taurus were treated for injuries at an area hospital. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor.

The more complicated a wrongful death lawsuit, the longer it usually takes to reach a fair settlement. Waiting months or years can take a financial toll on a family. When financial resources are dwindling, but the bills still need to be paid, plaintiffs should never compromise their ability to get the compensation they deserve. A better option is to seek litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance to alleviate financial stress after the wrongful loss or serious injury of a loved one. This lawsuit cash advance can be used to pay expenses such as the mortgage, car payments, medical expenses, and funeral and burial expenses. The only eligibility requirements are a strong case and attorney representation. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. There are no upfront costs or monthly payments; repayment is made from the proceeds of the case. Best of all, litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if the case is lost, repayment is excused.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident and need financial assistance until the case settles, you may wish to apply for a non-recourse cash advance. The application process takes less than five minutes either online or by phone. Once your case is approved, funds can be available within 48 hours or less. Contact Lawsuit Financial for a free no-obligation consultation.

Lawsuit Funding Helps Victims of Hit-and-Run Accidents

A 50-year-old pedestrian was killed after she was hit by a vehicle in northwest Houston. Police say the woman was crossing the street about 9 p.m. when a speeding SUV ran over her. And kept going. The woman died at the scene.

A hit-and-run accident can be very complicated and the laws in such cases very state-to-state; so does insurance liability. It is imperative that the woman’s loved ones seek advice from an experience attorney to understand their rights and collect full recovery for damages. Unfortunately, the litigation process could take years. While coping with their grief, the family may be burdened by the expenses associated with the woman’s death. There may be immediate financial assistance in the form of lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance that would allow the family to pay funeral expenses and other important bills. When the financial burden is lifted from the plaintiff, their attorney is given the time necessary to obtain full value in the case. Funding can be obtained in as little as 24 hours because we approve applications based on case strength and attorney representation. We do not require a credit check or employment verification, and there are no monthly payments. Most importantly, our cash advances are non-recourse. This means if our client does not win or settle the lawsuit, repayment of the lawsuit cash advance is void.

The application process takes less than five minutes online or by phone. After we obtain case documentation from your attorney, if approved for funding, we can have the cash in your hands within 24 - 48 hours. Contact Lawsuit Financial today and see if our legal finance services can be the financial lifeline you need during your pending lawsuit.

Plaintiffs Can Get A Portion of Their Settlement Before Case Resolution With No Risks Attached

Many people wait months, even years before reaching a fair settlement offer in their personal injury claim, yet they need money to withstand the litigation process. Living through a lawsuit should never be as devastating as the problem that caused it, but seeking help from family or friends or applying for a bank loan is not always a viable option. What happens if you fail to repay the money? How does that impact your relationship with family or friends? If you took out a bank loan, you must pay it back, with monthly payments. The bank can come after you if you default, even after they’ve taken collateral. The lender can also bring legal action against you, garnish your wages, levy bank accounts, and use other methods to collect the amount you owe. That is difficult for any borrower, but devastating for those in a personal injury lawsuit. A risk-free option is lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding allows plaintiffs to pursue their litigation on a level playing field by providing the tool – a non-recourse cash advance – to resist delay tactics by the defendant (usually an insurance company). When a plaintiff can overcome a defendant’s financial advantage, they are in a position to wait for a fair and equitable settlement. The main advantage of lawsuit funding is that there is no credit check, employment verification, or collateral required; funding is awarded solely on case strength. Additionally, repayment is only made when the case successfully settles; it cost the plaintiff nothing if the case is lost.

Two key qualifying requirements to apply for funding are a pending personal injury case and attorney representation. The next step is to complete our easy, one-page application. We will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for documentation to determine if the case has merit. Upon approval, funds can be deposited directly into the plaintiff’s bank account or sent via overnight mail within 24- 48 hours. At that point, the money can be used anyway the plaintiff wishes, but is typically used to pay medical expenses, mortgage payments, auto payments, daily living expenses, or any other expenses. Remember, the plaintiff owes absolutely nothing until a favorable settlement is reached; if the plaintiff loses the repayment is completely waived.

Providing a lawsuit cash advance is just the beginning with Lawsuit Financial. Through our Client Resource Center (CRC) we also help plaintiffs find financing and budgeting options to improve their financial security not only during the pending claim, but beyond. Our assistance in placing clients with the right people in the right program is offered absolutely free. Call us toll-free at 1- 877-377-7848 and see how we may be able to help you.

Lawsuit Funding Bridges The Gap Between Settling A Lawsuit And The Financial Stresses Of Living Through One

Most plaintiffs do not have the deep pockets of big corporations and insurance companies. They can’t afford to wait forever for a settlement without feeling some financial stress. Settling a personal injury lawsuit early may seem like the right thing to do when the bills are piling up, but it is usually a lost opportunity to achieve a much larger settlement, one that is closer to case value. Injury victims should never be forced to accept a less-than-fair settlement because of pressing financial needs. When in the middle of a lawsuit and faced with foreclosure or mounting bills, plaintiffs can turn to Lawsuit Financial for help.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance for personal injury plaintiffs based purely on the strength of the lawsuit. Our team will evaluate a funding application by working with the plaintiff and their attorney to obtain all necessary information about the case. Once the supporting documents is provided and reviewed, if approved, a contract will be prepared for execution. Funding can be available within 24 – 48 hours by overnight mail or direct deposit into the plaintiff’s bank account. The money can be used however the plaintiff chooses, although is typically used to pay medical expenses, car payments, mortgage payments, and other pressing bills. There are no upfront fees, no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verifications. Additionally, there is no risk to our clients because no payments are made until the case settles, and if the case is lost, no payment is made, ever.

If you are in a personal injury lawsuit and it appears litigation will continue for an extended period of time, don’t become desperate and accept a settlement less than you deserve. Lawsuit Financial has helped thousands of plaintiffs overcome financial pressures and we may be able to help you, too. Click here to apply now!

Four Killed, 14 Seriously Injured in Crash Near Our Nation’s Capital

A pickup truck collided with a church van in Hyattsville, Maryland, leaving four people dead and 14 others injured. Police believe the pickup truck initially rear-ended a passenger vehicle before going several hundred feet farther up a road, losing control and then crossing a double yellow center line into the path of the van. When the van struck the truck, the pickup became engulfed in flames. Three people in the van were killed, including a young child, along with the driver of the pickup truck. The 14 injured — six children and eight adults — were taken to various hospitals, eight in critical condition. The crash is still under investigation.

Lawsuit Funding: A Simple Solution To Paying The Bills During A Pending Lawsuit

Many plaintiffs don’t realize what affect their finances will have on their lawsuit. It is not uncommon for plaintiffs to be out of work due to injuries and have medical bills to pay on top of the usual responsibilities of a mortgage or rent, a car payment, and other daily expenses. Some may have been experiencing hard times before the accident happened. While a settlement may help cover these bills and expenses, creditors won’t wait while a lawsuit drags out months, even years. If the defendant decides to appeal the ruling, which is a common setting for stalling tactics, the legal process will take even longer. When pursuing a lawsuit of any duration, plaintiffs often find that lawsuit funding is the fastest and easiest way to manage their finances until case resolution.

Lawsuit funding is not a loan; it is a cash advance that allows plaintiffs to borrow from their future settlement to pay necessary bills and. Cash advances are based on the merits of the case; there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. The major benefit is that repayment is contingent on the case settlement. If the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is waived.

• Are you are in a pending personal injury lawsuit with dwindling funds?
• Are you unable to return to work?
• Are you feeling pressure to settle too early for too little?
• Are the bills piling up?
• Are you facing foreclosure?
• Are debt collectors calling?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, contact Lawsuit Financial. We offer a fast, online application and are able to provide funding via overnight mail or a bank wire within 24 – 48 hours of funding approval. Financial stability is not only essential for you to fight your case, but it could also be seen as a smart legal strategy. There are no risks to apply, and since we do not check your credit an inquiry will not appear on your credit report.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Against Ohio State University Would Have Qualified for Litigation Funding

Ohio State University will make a pair of $1.7 million payments to settle wrongful-death and medical malpractice lawsuits. The first settlement was the result of a medical negligence and wrongful death claim by a family of a man who died in 2009. According to the lawsuit, Michael McNew sought medical attention at in 2009, complaining of an acutely painful hemorrhoid in addition to nausea, diarrhea, sore throat, and fatigue. He was diagnosed and treated for a blood clot in the hemorrhoid. Over several days, McNew complained about bleeding and severe pain, but only was advised to keep taking pain medication, the lawsuit alleged. A few days later, he died from an undiagnosed cerebral hemorrhage caused by thrombocytopenia, a bleeding disorder. Ohio State will make a $1.4 million payment to McNew’s family and pay $300,000 over four years to fund annuities for his three children.

In the second settlement, OSU agreed to pay $1.75 million in a medical malpractice case in which a man alleges he received substandard care that led to permanent injuries. In a lawsuit, Briyn Huff alleged that air was allowed into tubing connected to a catheter during spinal surgery in 2013 at Wexner Medical Center, permitting air to enter his circulatory system and cause an embolism. As a result, Huff says he suffered heart attacks, brain and spine strokes, vision problems and numbness.

These are good examples of cases that would be eligible for litigation funding. While waiting for their case to settle, the plaintiffs could have dealt with their financial issues through a lawsuit cash advance against the future settlement. Lawsuit funding is often the answer to difficult situations where a family or individual is between a rock and a hard place without sufficient funds to handle unexpected medical bills and ordinary living expenses, while trying to pick of the pieces of their shattered lives.

Obtaining a lawsuit cash advance can often be arranged within 24-48 hours.

Propane Explosion Rocks a Neighborhood for Miles; Debris Scattered over a 1,000-Mile Radius

A man was transported to the hospital with significant burns after a house explosion on Sunday. Neighbors said a blast went through the neighborhood, blowing out windows, rattling doors and forcing people to the ground after the home was vaporized in the gas explosion, leaving nothing but the foundation. Somewhere from beneath hundreds of pounds of rubble, an electronic greeting card kept playing “Happy Birthday to You.”

The incident is still under investigation, but it is believed that a propane tank inside the home could be behind the explosion. DTE Energy confirmed that the home had not been hooked up to natural gas since 2004, which led them to investigate whether propane was a factor. The gas lines may have still been active, despite no service to the home.

A propane explosion can occur anywhere the flammable gas is handled improperly. Although homeowners are at fault for many gas and propane explosions, gas and propane failures can be the result of improper venting, defective parts, leaking pipes, hoses and tanks, faulty installation and negligent maintenance and repairs. When propane tanks leak, the gas becomes highly flammable and can easily ignite by static electricity, an electrical spark, smoking material and fire. It is critical that experienced fire investigators are able to analyze evidence and determine the chain of events leading up to the explosion. A reputable personal injury attorney specializing in propane gas explosions can also help determine the cause of the accident. If it is determined that the explosion was due to someone’s negligence, those parties can, and should be held accountable.

Explosion lawsuits are among the most difficult cases to litigate and to prove at trial because most of the key evidence has been destroyed; sometimes key witnesses have been killed in the blast. An experienced attorney can help the victims receive compensation for injuries, including medical bills, disfigurement, lost wages, and pain, suffering. While an attorney thoroughly investigates the facts and builds a solid case, the victims may suffer financial loss. Foreclosure, eviction, and car repossession may be looming. Many victims who find themselves in need of financial assistance will often choose to investigate and obtain a lawsuit cash advance.

Lawsuit funding helps plaintiffs cover financial obligations while pursuing a settlement. Well placed, interim, legal funding while waiting for the case to resolve, might salvage valuable personal assets and prevent plaintiffs from settling for less than full case value because of dire financial need. All that is needed to qualify is representation by an experienced attorney and a case with merit. There are no upfront fees, no monthly payments, and no credit checks. There is also no risk because if the lawsuit fails, the lawsuit cash advance is completely excused.

Applying for lawsuit funding is easy and free online or by telephone. Once an application is approved, funds can be available via check or wire within 24 – 48 hours. Call Lawsuit Financial today and see how we can help.

Semi-Truck Driver Kills Six People in a Senseless Crash

At least four lawsuits have already been filed against a Kentucky truck driver and his employer after a nine-vehicle crash on June 2015 killed six people and injured 12 others. The truck driver and his passenger were not injured.

Reports revealed that the truck driver tested positive for drugs after the crash and was found to have violated federal commercial hours-of-service regulations leading up to it. The FMCSA determined that he had falsified his records-of-duty log for the days immediately preceding the accident, claiming he had been off-duty from June 15th through June 25th. However, tracking systems demonstrated that he had been driving his truck on June 22, 23 and 24, for 45 hours straight before the accident. He has been charged with six counts of vehicular manslaughter, four counts of reckless aggravated assault, and one count each of driving under the influence of narcotics, speeding, and making false reports about his duty status. Reports also show that his employer, Cool Runnings Express, has a spotty record involving violations for defective brakes and driver logs. This tragic accident, and the glaring circumstances leading up to it, demonstrates the compelling need for better government safety regulation of the trucking industry.

In the meantime, three of the lawsuits have recently been consolidated; a fourth case is awaiting the judge’s determination to decide whether to consolidate it with the other cases. The lawsuits allege that the truck driver "operated his vehicle with negligent and reckless disregard for the safety of others," and accuses him of speeding, failure to keep vehicle under control and reckless driving along with other violations. The claims allege that Cool Runnings Express "failed to exercise reasonable and ordinary care in its decision to hire the driver, as well as failure to supervise him, and failed to properly maintain its vehicle in accordance with the federal regulations.

Trucking accidents cause thousands of catastrophic and devastating injuries and deaths each year, resulting in lawsuits which can often take an extended time to settle. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a trucking accident, it is important to consult an attorney who specializes in this area of the law.

Family Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit Following Big Rig Crash Aiming For Stricter Safety Regulations

A Santa Cruz, CA family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit hoping to seek stricter safety regulations in the trucking industry.

In July 2014, traffic had slowed to almost at a standstill on Highway 17 when a big rig plowed into a line of ten vehicles, killing a 25-year-old man and injuring seven others. One of the injured was a 37-year-old woman who suffered spine injuries and a laceration to her liver; firefighters used the Jaws of Life to get her out of the car.

The rig driver told reporters at the scene that the weight of the two dirt-filled trailers he was hauling, combined with the steep grade, prevented him from stopping in time. He said the truck’s brakes failed and he swerved into the guardrail to try to stop the descending rig.
The driver had just under three months' experience driving such a vehicle at the time of the crash. The owner of the trucking company said a safety check was conducted on the truck the morning of the crash, and that it was inspected by the CHP two weeks ago. The suit seeks an unspecified amount.

The lawsuit was filed against three trucking companies, a construction firm and a truck owner. Alleging negligence in hiring, supervision and training of drivers. “This gut-wrenching tragedy would have never happened had the responsible companies taken steps to ensure that an unskilled trucker driving a faulty big rig not be allowed to traverse a complicated, mountainous journey,” said Robert Allard, the plaintiff’s attorney. He said separate from the civil suit, that he wants trucking industry leaders to require new driver's license "tiers" based on the trucker's experience. For example, inexperienced truckers should be limited to certain load weights or restricted from steep, mountainous highways.

The lawsuit is the second filed as a result of the crash. The seriously injured woman filed a negligence lawsuit against the truck driver and Tracy-based SBT Trucking Co. — also known as Saini Bros. Trucking Inc. Her lawsuit also alleges negligence in the driving, hiring, training and supervision of the tractor trailer. The suit does not seek a specific sum, but attorneys said they want to cover the woman’s medical expenses.

Trucking accidents cause thousands of catastrophic and devastating injuries and deaths each year, resulting in lawsuits which can often take an extended time to settle. Often times, plaintiffs will struggle financially due to medical bills, physical therapy, funeral expenses, and daily household bills, especially if unable to work or the deceased victim was the sole provider for the family. When a plaintiff has nowhere to turn for financial relief, Lawsuit Financial can help until a verdict or settlement is reached.

Lawsuit funding is a risk-free cash advance against a pending lawsuit. There are no application fee, monthly payments, credit check, or employment verification. Best of all, if the case is lost there is repayment of the cash advance is not required. Repayment is only made when the case is won, and from the settlement proceeds.

With lawsuit funding, there is no reason to settle your case too soon or for too little. If you have been in an auto accident, have an attorney handling the case, and seeking a lawsuit cash advance, contact Lawsuit Financial. We will provide a complimentary evaluation of your case. If your case is approved for funding, we can have cash in your hands within 24 – 48 hours of a signed agreement.

Elder Abuse Lawsuit Filed Against California Nursing Facility

When placing a loved one in the care of a nursing home, it is expected that the resident will receive quality care. Unfortunately, negligence and abuse in this setting are all too common. Injuries to elderly residents may occur as a result of inadequate staffing, improper resident monitoring, unsafe conditions, or staff members intentionally neglecting residents or/and causing residents harm. When it happens, victims and their families have the right to seek legal remedies. An experienced elder abuse attorney can guide victims through the legal process to recover damages.

An elder abuse lawsuit was filed against a La Crescenta nursing facility claiming that staff neglected to care for an 88-year-old man, causing him to fall and fracture his spine, and develop multiple pressure ulcers.

In August, the man was transferred to Westside Health Care in La Crescenta for 15 days of rehabilitation to regain his strength after a hospitalize stay. On August 21, he was found “slumped over in his wheelchair,” with an open cut on his head, according to the lawsuit. One caregiver reportedly told paramedics that the man fell while going to the bathroom. The lawsuit alleges that caregivers placed him back in the wheelchair after the fall, “hoping to sweep the whole thing under the rug.” The lawsuit further alleges that it wasn’t until he was transferred to another facility that the man was reportedly diagnosed with pneumonia, and had three pressure ulcers, a spinal fracture and bruising, all because Westside staff “wrongfully withheld required care” which included repositioning him every two hours and making sure he was properly hydrated.

Some residents have medical conditions that make them especially vulnerable to slip and falls accidents, broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, hip fractures, and other injuries. Nursing homes must be staffed appropriately and maintain safe standards to ensure the safety of its patients. When negligence or abuse occurs, whether physical, mental, or emotional, it can leave marks that are not easily seen. These may linger and become more problematic.
The following signs are examples that can indicate neglect or abuse and should be taken seriously.

• Bedsores
• Slip and fall injuries, causing broken bones, head injuries, internal injuries, and more;
• Dehydration
• Infection, unexplained wounds, burns, bruises, sprains
• Poor personal hygiene or unkempt appearance
• Medication errors
• Malnutrition
• Physical abuse
• Sexual abuse
• Emotional abuse or neglect

If you believe that a loved one may be the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, you may be entitled to compensation. Choosing the right attorney is also a vitally important decision. If you do not know an attorney who specializes in nursing home abuse, Lawsuit Financial has excellent legal referral sources all over the country and our professional staff will locate one in your area within 24-48 hours.

Lawsuits Mounting Over El Faro Cargo Ship That Sank During Hurricane Joaquin

A second lawsuit has being filed on behalf of a crew member aboard the El Faro cargo ship that sank on October 1 in 15,000 feet of water east of the Bahamas. Court records show the wrongful death lawsuit was filed on behalf of Tina Riehm, widow of third mate Jeremie Riehm, one of 33 people aboard the ship. Last week, a $100 million wrongful death lawsuit against the vessel’s owner and captain was filed by the family of Lonnie Jordan, a sailor aboard the vessel.

The ship was sailing between Jacksonville, Fla., and Puerto Rico with the 33 people and cargo that included cars and retail goods when it lost engine power and the ability to steer away Hurricane Joaquin. It was last heard from that morning when the captain the captain communicated that the ship had taken on water, was listing at 15 degrees and had lost propulsion. The U.S. Coast Guard called off a search and rescue mission after finding only one body amid debris from the ship. It is the worst cargo shipping disaster involving a U.S.-flagged vessel since 1983.

Coast Guard records show the ship had mechanical problems dating back several years, including a failed boiler and a fuel leak. Former seamen who sailed on El Faro in the past said they had seen recurring problems, including engine failure, water seeping into rooms during heavy rain and problems lowering the lifeboats. The U.S. Navy is has sent a search and rescue vessel equipped with a "hydrophone" underwater listening device that can detect pulses emitted by the El Faro's voyage data recorder, similar to the black box on airplanes. Aboard are diving and salvage experts, as well as a team from the National Transportation Safety Board and the American Bureau of Shipping.

The lawsuits have been filed against Tote Services Inc. and Tote Maritime Puerto Rico, as well as the El Faro captain, who is also presumed dead, according to court documents. The suits allege that Tote Maritime and its captain, Michael Davidson, were negligent in choosing to sail a 41-year-old cargo ship into dangerous weather despite being in an unseaworthy condition. Tote executives have previously said the captain sailed with a sound plan and blamed the sinking on engine failure.

The plaintiff’s attorney in the first lawsuit, Willie E. Gary, said that he would be seeking the ship maintenance records and had heard that it was undergoing mechanical repairs the day it departed as well as having other problems within weeks of the doomed trip. “Money won't bring him back, I know that. But we're going to change things and that's what big business understands is when you hit them in their pockets," Gary told reporters. Gary said Tote needs to place more emphasis on employee safety and less on profits. He also said more lawsuits would follow on behalf of the other relatives.

Many maritime injury accidents and deaths result from an unsafe work environment and employer liability. When that happens, injured workers (or their bereaved loved ones) can seek compensation from the negligent parties under the Jones Act.

A Jones Act claim generally requires proof of an unsafe work environment, not only through the testimony of workers, but also of an expert in maritime safety work procedures. The compensation recoverable is much broader than in a workers’ compensation claim. The law covers seamen, commercial fishermen and other people employed on inland waters, as well as in coastal marshes and the high seas.

It is highly recommended that you retain the services of an experienced maritime attorney to pursue your case. Lawsuit Financial has strategic relationships with attorneys all over the country who specialize in this area of law. Our Attorney Referral Program promises to locate a legal specialist with 48 hours of your request, free of charge.

Such cases can take a long time to resolve and families are often without wages or other compensation during that time. Once you have an attorney and are pursuing a Maritime case, you may seek lawsuit funding from Lawsuit Financial. This is a non-recourse cash advance to pay your extraordinary medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, mortgage or rent payments, car payments, food, utilities or other important expenses until your case settles for the compensation you deserve. With a lawsuit cash advance, there is no credit check or employment verification; the only collateral necessary is a pending lawsuit. Once approved, funds are typically available within 24 – 48 hours.

If you or someone you love has filed a maritime claim and needs fast cash, don’t settle for less, call Lawsuit Financial toll free, at 877-377-SUIT (7848).

Pedestrian Waiting for the Bus Dies After Coca-Cola Truck Driver Loses Control

On Monday, a 37-year-old woman was waiting at the bus stop on her way to work. She was talking to her husband on the phone when he heard her say, “Oh s…..!” Those words were the last thing he heard. The man thought someone had snatched her phone, but it was much worse. She was struck and killed by a Coca-Cola truck.

The truck driver lost control before slamming into scaffolding outside a Bronx apartment, killing the mother of five and injuring six other people. Although witnesses have given varying accounts of what happened, a preliminary investigation shows that a 52-year-old woman driving a 2013 Nissan S.U.V. crossed two lanes and cut in front of the truck to make a right turn. The truck driver lost control after hitting the vehicle. The truck then jumped a curb, striking three pedestrians waiting at a bus stop before crashing into the scaffolding. The woman was trapped beneath the truck and was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver and five other people suffered minor injuries and were taken to local hospitals, according to the fire department. The investigation is ongoing.

In an instant one woman lost her life, the life of her family shattered. Residents said that the road has been dangerous for a long time and better traffic control is needed. One resident went on to say that the traffic lights frequently malfunction or stop working completely, and police often have to direct traffic. The road may be considered dangerous, but it is highly possible that as more information comes to light, it will become evident that some form of carelessness directly contributed to this crash.

The unexpectedly loss of a loved one can be devastating for any family. Having to plan a funeral will not only contribute to the pain and suffering, but may possibly add a financial burden to the emotional challenges. While the accident remains under investigation, family members of the victim would be well-advised to consult an experienced wrongful death attorney who can advise them of their legal rights.

No one is prepared to deal with the loss of a loved one under tragic circumstances. Soon after the loss, survivors may be also faced with ongoing emotional pain and financial hardship. Although a wrongful death lawsuit can help seek compensation for such loss, it can’t help with immediate financial needs. This is the time when litigation funding can be beneficial.

At Lawsuit Financial, we provide can provide a lawsuit cash advance to help plaintiffs cover medical expenses, household bills, lost income, and funeral and burial expenses giving their attorney time needed to obtain full case value. We require no credit checks, as the entire cash advance is based on the case merit. Additionally, our “lawsuit loans” (as often times termed) are on a non-recourse basis meaning that Lawsuit Financial is only repaid if our funded client successfully settles. With no upfront fees or monthly payments, litigation funding is truly risk-free. Contact us today to learn more; our consultations are absolutely free.

A Lawsuit Cash Advance Keeps Plaintiffs Financially On Track While Awaiting a Settlement

During the litigation process, plaintiffs usually find themselves waiting longer than expected for a resolution in their case. Due to the length of litigation and often the inability to work, many will fall behind on bills due to their injury, treatment and lengthy recovery. Financial stress can be worse than the physical injuries suffered. When plaintiffs do not have the financial luxury to wait for justice, they will often settle for less money just to pay the bills and keep a roof over the family’s head. Those struggling financially can obtain financial assistance through Lawsuit Financial.

For over 15 years, Lawsuit Financial has been helping plaintiffs meet their financial obligations by providing them with a cash advance on their personal injury claim. Lawsuit funding can not only take the financial pressure off plaintiffs, but it allows their attorney time to work the case and achieve full case value.

A lawsuit cash advance is short-term funds that helps plaintiffs pay bills and expenses such as the mortgage, utility bills, medical expenses, car payments and groceries until they receive a settlement. At that time, not before, the plaintiff repays the advance. If the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived. With no credit checks or employment verification, applicants can receive funds in as little as 24 hours. All we need to approve a case is a one-page funding application and case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. We never get involved in how the case is handled or the settlement decisions.

If you have a personal injury case and are falling behind on personal financial obligations, contact Lawsuit Financial. Let us help you pay your bills now so you can receive the compensation you deserve later.

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. To apply, complete our online application of give us a call toll-free at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848). We provide no-obligation funding consultations; we also have an attorney referral program with no cost and no obligation to use our services.

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

This case illustrates how lawsuit funding can help an injured victim obtain access to justice.

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. With a lawsuit cash advance, Jacob was able to pay his bills, avoid foreclosure, and wait for the compensation he deserved.

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. Tragedies like this often have a financial impact, especially if the family's principal means of support is gone. No one has limitless financial strength; injury victims and/or surviving family members may qualify for litigation funding, a proven to be a godsend in such cases.

The strategy behind litigation funding is that it allows plaintiffs to pay the bills while waiting for a just settlement rather than settling early to avoid further losses. This non-recourse cash advance is based on case strength alone. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments; there are no credit checks or employment verification. Furthermore, no money is repaid until the case successfully settles, and if the plaintiff loses, they keep the cash advance free and with no obligation.

All that is needed to be considered for funding is to complete a one-page application online or over the phone. Next, we review case documentation obtained from your attorney. If the case is approved for funding, we will prepare a contract for signature and wire funds within 24 – 48 hours.

We can’t undo the negligence; we can’t rewind the clock so that it never happened. What we can do is help you to survive the financial turmoil that was caused until a settlement is reached. Don’t let a negative financial picture force you to settle for less than you deserve. Contact the legal funding experts at Lawsuit Financial.

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.

Intoxicated Driver Gets Five Years While Victim is Paralyzed for Life

Two years ago, a young woman was drunk when she entered an intersection of a one-way street, driving the wrong way. It was later determined that she was also under the influence of opiates and oxycodone at the time of the accident. Because of her negligence, a 42-year-old husband and father of two young children is suffering from a traumatic brain injury and permanent disabilities. He has also been diagnosed with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

In court, the victim recounts the events following that day he was thrown from his motorcycle, 30 feet in the air before being stopped by a tree. His life changed in an instant; he felt he was living a bad dream.

“I learned how I was struck by a car and flew 30 feet in the air and got stopped by a tree. I was told my head ended up in the gutter. When I regained consciousness in the hospital, I also learned that the person who drove into me was intoxicated.” He said that a woman who held him until the medics arrived heard the intoxicated driver say to a passenger in her car: “There’s nothing I can do, let’s get the (expletive) out of here” and ran off.

He listed his injuries: “The right half of my ribs were fractured, skull, compound femur, hip, knee and my foot needed reconstruction and the foot’s skin came off, and oh yeah, I lost a toe.”
“I’m immobilized now,” he said. “I have to learn to walk, use my dominant arm and I have a traumatic brain injury. Normality is a thing of the past. I am now handicapped for life. I can’t work, nor get a job. At the age of 42, when I was convinced that I could be providing for my family, I now depend on everyone to achieve almost everything.”

The 24-year-old woman admitted to drinking earlier that day. She was convicted of second-degree assault with a motor vehicle, driving the wrong way on a one-way street, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and evading responsibility. While she is serving 5 years in jail, in addition to the life-long physical pain, the victim and his family are currently over $2 million in debt because of this incident. Is that justice?

Through a personal injury lawsuit, the victim can seek to recover financial compensation. But, simply winning the case doesn’t necessarily guarantee receiving the financial benefits. Unfortunately, there are some cases, such as this one, where the defendant cannot afford to pay. She has no income and no savings. There was no mention whether she had insurance coverage and is so, was it adequate.

This should not prevent the victim from filing a claim despite its complexity. An experienced attorney will review the situation and determine the best way to obtain compensation for the damages. Stressful times like this can often lead a plaintiff to make a quick settlement – believing that is all he/she can get from the defendant or simply to just start paying the mounting bills. This is where lawsuit funding can help victims regain control of their lives and their finances. While waiting to obtain justice, a lawsuit cash advance would help the plaintiff pay those outstanding debts. This is a risk-free form of financing based on the successful outcome of a personal injury lawsuit. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments, and the cash advance is only repaid if, and when the case successfully settles. It is easy to apply for a lawsuit cash advance either online or by phone. If approved, funds can often be place in an applicant's hands in as little as 24 hours.

If you have been in a drunk driving auto accident and experiencing financial hardship, contact Lawsuit Financial for a “staying power” advantage and to fight for the compensation you deserve. Whether the family files a personal injury lawsuit or not, Lawsuit Financial hopes that something positive will result from this terrible tragedy. We hope that it will serve notice to drivers about the dangers of driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. This case is also a good reminder to protect you and your family against the financial consequences of an auto accident with an uninsured/under-insured driver by carrying such coverage on your own auto insurance policy. Unde-rinsured motorist coverage compensates you and your family when you are involved in an accident with a driver who does not have adequate insurance coverage for the injuries, and you carry insurance with higher policy limits. When that happens, your insurance company will pay the difference between the other driver’s insurance coverage and your under-insured policy limits. Contact your insurance agent for more information.

Get Positive Case Results with Lawsuit Funding

An auto accident left a professional mover out of work for months due to serious neck and back injuries. He filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver who crossed the median, slamming into his moving van, but the case took months to settle. This plaintiff would have been an ideal candidate for lawsuit funding.

Many auto accident plaintiffs face a lengthy litigation process. During those months or years, they are often in need of money to pay medical expenses, mortgage payments, tuition, and regular household expenses. In such case, there may only be two choices – settle for less than full case value or opt for a lawsuit cash advance.

Lawsuit funding does not mean another monthly payments. It does not mean years of paying back a “loan,” over a fixed period of time regardless of the borrower’s circumstances. It is, however, a risk-free cash advance against the expected proceeds of the settlement. Once the plaintiff reaches a settlement, repayment of the advance plus interest comes directly from the proceeds of the settlement. Should the plaintiff lose the case, the cash advance is completely waived.

The application process takes five minutes. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Once the application is received, case documentation is requested from the plaintiff’s attorney. If the case is determined to have merit, a contract is drafted for signatures and funds can be provided within 24 – 48 hours, via direct deposit or overnight mail. Obtaining a cash advance during a pending claim can’t get any easier. Click here to learn more or call our office at 1-877-377-7848.

Two Lawsuits Filed in Connection with Triple Fatal Auto-Tractor Trailer Crash

Accidents between an auto and a tractor-trailer can be serious or deadly for the occupants of the car. Victims, such as those in the case below, may wish to seek litigation funding to relieve financial pressures while waiting for case settlement.

The crash occurred on October 2014 as a family of four was headed home along I-95 in Waterford, CT. As the female driver slowed for traffic congestion caused by an accident up ahead, the tractor-trailer behind her failed to stop slamming into the back of their Nissan Sentra and causing a domino effect involving a total of four vehicles. The driver of the Nissan was seriously injured. Her three-year-old son was killed instantly; her nine-year-old daughter and fiancé died two days later.

Initially, four separate lawsuits were filed naming the truck driver and his employer, Gold Medal Bakery, Inc. and Gold Medal Bagel Bakery, Inc. of Fall River, Mass. and Hartford. Three of the suits were later consolidated by the female driver on behalf of herself and children. A family member of her fiancé filed a separate suit for his wrongful death.

The lawsuits allege negligence and carelessness of behalf of the truck driver for driving with inadequate or defective brakes, speeding, driving when his alertness was impaired by fatigue and not leaving enough distance between vehicles. The suits allege negligence on the part of his employer for failing to properly monitor the inspection and maintenance of the tractor trailer or properly maintain a driving log of the driver. Both lawsuits seek an unspecified amount to pay for extensive medical bills, punitive damages and attorneys' fees.

It goes without saying that losing a loved one in an auto accident leaves an emotional scar on any family. In the midst of the grief, it is hard to deal with the financial consequences, but cases like this are a perfect candidate for litigation funding.

During a complex and time-consuming lawsuit, Lawsuit Financial can provide a lawsuit cash advance to assist with mortgage/rent payments, funeral costs, medical expenses, and other household living so the plaintiffs can wait for a full and fair settlement that holds the defendants responsible. 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 our client does not successfully settle, the repayment is completely waived.

It is no longer necessary to allow corporate defense attorneys to force you to settle prematurely for a fraction of case value. For a free analysis of your funding situation, call Lawsuit Financial, toll free, at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) or visit us online at www.lawsuitfinancial.com. We are standing by, ready and willing to help you achieve better results in your litigation.

Put Your Finances Back on Track with a Lawsuit Cash Advance

It is stressful enough when you or a family member is seriously injured, without worrying about losing everything. Unfortunately, life doesn’t come to a halt just because you’re involved in a lawsuit, but a long legal process can drain an injured victim emotionally and financially. When things are at their worst, many plaintiffs turn to lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance against a pending claim with no upfront fees, monthly payments or credit checks. Because an applicant’s financial status is not considered in the approval process, employment and credit history do not matter. To qualify, you need to be represented by an experienced personal injury attorney, have a case with merit, and complete a lawsuit funding application. That’s it!

Once approval is determined, funds can be wired within 24-48 hours and available for immediate use. The money advanced can be used anyway the client wishes, but is usually for necessities such as the mortgage, rent, auto payments, medical bills and monthly household expenses. There is no need to worry about repayment until the case is settled. Because lawsuit funding is provided risk-free, you are only obligated to repay the advance if, and when, your case successfully settled. If the case does not favorably settle, you owe nothing.

Are you in need of financial assistance during your pending claim? Would an advance on your lawsuit help pay the bills? Put your finances back on track with a lawsuit cash advance.

Second Lawsuit Filed in Auto Accident Caused by Defective Tire

Defective tires make their way into the market more often than we think, causing serious and fatal accidents. When a tire company, such as Bridgestone, creates a defective tire or tire part, it should be held liable for the injuries and deaths that the defects cause. If you have a pending defective product lawsuit and need a lawsuit cash advance to assist with your financial distress needs, consider Lawsuit Financial.

A Utah-based truck driver has filed a federal lawsuit against Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations alleging negligence. The claim is the latest related to a fatal crash on Interstate 80 in southeast Cheyenne.

In November 2014, a FedEx tractor-trailer driven was heading westbound on the interstate when the front driver's side tire of the tractor failed, causing the vehicle to enter the median, plow through the cable barrier and strike an eastbound minivan before colliding partially head-on with another minivan. The driver and two passengers in the second van were killed. Family members of the three victims filed lawsuits against Bridgestone and FedEx. Their cases have been consolidated for a trial set to start next year.

The truck driver’s personal injury lawsuit says Bridgestone's tire "was in a defective, dangerous condition at the time of its sale" and was "unreasonably dangerous," and that Commercial Tire Inc. sold the two allegedly faulty Bridgestone tires to FedEx and installed them in August 2014. The truck driver alleges he “has suffered emotional stress, shock, trauma and injury to his emotional well-being, all of which has caused, continues to cause, and in the future will cause him mental pain and suffering and emotional distress." He is seeking compensation in excess of $75,000 to cover medical expenses and loss of income, as well as the physical pain and suffering, disability and emotional distress he's had to and will endure.

If a court finds that Bridgestone acted negligently, the victims may be able to recover compensation for medical and/or funeral expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. The battle will most likely include a struggle to pay bills and expenses while waiting for a settlement or award from a jury. One way to minimize the financial impact is to seek a lawsuit cash advance.

For plaintiffs with a lawsuit who need cash now, lawsuit funding is available in the form of a no-risk, no-credit check lawsuit cash advance. At Lawsuit Financial, we fund cases based solely on the merits of the case; personal valuables and credit history are not at risk. To get started, simply complete our funding application. If your case qualifies, we can wire a check directly into your bank account in less than 48-hours. You can pay your bills and wait to pay us back through the proceeds of your settlement. If your case does not win, you will have no personal liability to pay us back.

Your road to financial freedom starts by calling Lawsuit Financial at 1-877-377-7848 or by completing our fast and easy funding application.

Verdict Rendered in 2011 Drunk Driving Case

A Los Angeles jury awarded $21 million to a family seriously injured in a 2011 DUI auto accident. The crash occurred when a drunk driver lost control of his SUV, crossed into the family’s lane, and hit their Ford Taurus head-on. The verdict included compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and damages for pain and suffering.

This case would have likely been eligible for lawsuit funding. When a person files a lawsuit against someone else, they may qualify for a lawsuit cash advance against the expected recoveries from their case. Lawsuit funding is a way to pay the ongoing medical bills, mortgage, tuition, car payments and the other daily expenditures of life while providing a victim precious time to wait for justice.

At Lawsuit Financial, approval is based on case strength; it is not contingent on credit or employment history. The money is provided on a non-recourse bases, so there is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. It also means repayment is based on case success. If the case is lost, the repayment is waived.

If you have a pending lawsuit and are struggling to make ends meet, lawsuit funding is not only an option to get your cash fast, but may make a substantial difference in the bottom line of your case. The application and approval process includes:
• A one-page application
• Case documentation from your attorney
• If approved, a signed contract by you and your attorney.

Once these steps are completed, we can wire the money directly into your bank account in as little as 24 hours.

Post Settlement Funding Puts Cash in Your Pocket Now

For many plaintiffs who have waited months, even years, for their personal injury case to settle, the prospect of waiting even longer for the settlement money to arrive can be financially damaging. Bills continue to pile up, foreclosure may be imminent, and your credit rating can be impacted, especially if the plaintiff is unable to work. When confronted with financial issues while waiting for a payout on a settled claim or appealed case, consider post-settlement lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit Financial offers a quick and easy application process, and a fast approval process often within 24 hours. Once we receive a funding application, we will work directly with your attorney to gather needed information to process your request as quickly as possible. Funding is based on the merits of the case, not on credit-worthiness, employment history verifications, or monthly payments. With a traditional bank loan, if you are unable to repay the loan the bank can go after and seize your assets, such as your home, in order to satisfy the debt! In contrast, our “loans” are provided on a non-recourse bases. You don’t pay back us until you are compensated from your lawsuit. And, if you don’t get paid from your lawsuit, you don’t pay us back. It’s that easy.

If you need help bridging the gap between when your personal injury case settles and when the settlement funds are disbursed, complete our online application or call our office toll-free at 877-377-7848. There is no cost or obligation to review your case and determine your funding needs.

Tents That Collapse During Severe Storms Puts Spotlight on Safety

A pair of deadly tent collapses are raising safety concerns. Last Sunday, a 35-year-old man was killed and more than a dozen injured when a tent collapsed on a crowd at the Prairie Fest in a Chicago suburb. The incident happened when a sudden storm brought high winds, hail and rain and ripped the tent from its moorings. People sought shelter under the tent just before the collapse. The festival is a four-day event with food, live music, a carnival and fireworks. There were around 5,000 in attendance when the incident occurred.

A day later, a man and young girl were killed and at least 22 others were injured after a circus tent collapsed when a severe storm swept through a New Hampshire fairground. Witnesses said it seemed that parts of the tent were briefly lifted into the air before slamming back down. The storm, packing 60 mph wind gusts and hail, blew through just as the first of two scheduled shows was beginning. One hundred people were in the tent when it collapsed. The National Weather Service had issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the area about 20 minutes before the storm swept through the area, ample time for people to get to safety. It is unknown whether the spectators were aware of the storm's strength. An investigation is underway including how the tent was constructed.

These tragic accidents beg the questions: Were the tents properly erected and secured? Were they able to withstand high winds? Were there communication and evacuation plans in place? As these questions, and more, continue, lawsuits could follow. Those responsible for the tent's design and construction, and event organizers who may have failed to warn party-goers of storm conditions, may be liable for serious injury and death related to the incidents. After retaining an attorney, seeking justice may place a financial burden on the victims and their family. These plaintiffs may be experiencing problems paying bills, such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, mortgage, rent, and daily expenses due to the loss of wages.

If they are struggling to make ends meet, lawsuit funding could be an option. Lawsuit funding is a cash advance against a potential jury verdict or settlement. At Lawsuit Financial, we know how devastating serious injuries or the sudden death of a loved one can be, and the emotional and financial impacts it can cause. The goal of the insurance company is to settle quickly and cheaply; not to receive justice. Lawsuit Financial hopes that by assisting with some of the mounting bills and expenses as a result of the lawsuit, the plaintiff can wait for justice to be served. We provide plaintiffs with immediate cash to give them and their attorney time to negotiate a fair and equitable settlement. The plaintiff only pays us back if they win their case; lose, and they owe us nothing. The application process is quick and easy. Call us today or visit us online to apply or learn more.

Lawsuit Funding Available for Victims of Flight for Life Helicopter Crash

Lawsuits have been filed less than a month after a fiery helicopter crash in Frisco, CA. On July 3, a Flight for Life helicopter was being flown for a non-emergency purpose when it crashed into a parking lot seconds after take-off, killing the pilot and seriously injuring a flight nurse and paramedic. The paramedic suffered burns over 90 percent of his body. Witnesses reported that the aircraft began spinning out of control immediately upon takeoff. The cause of the accident is still under investigation. The National Transportation Safety Board expects it to last for about 10 months; the FAA is participating in the investigation.

The lawsuits claim the crash was caused by a malfunction or defect in the helicopter’s tail rotor system sending the aircraft spinning out of control, causing the fuel tank to rupture and the helicopter burst into flames upon impact. The suits also claim that the mechanics who would have maintained the helicopter did not properly inspect and repair it for service. According to the plaintiffs’ attorney, “My clients sincerely hope that this will never happen to anybody again and whatever safety problems there are with that chopper can be fixed.” The lawsuits name Air Methods Corp., the helicopter operator, and the manufacturer, Airbus Helicopters. The lawsuits seek unspecified damages.

Nothing improves safety like the threat of a lawsuit. If you have been seriously injured in any type of accident, notify a personal injury attorney to determine whether the accident circumstances merit a lawsuit against the person or company responsible for damages. If you need a referral to an experienced attorney in your area, we can help through our nationwide database. This is a free service that is provided within 48 hours of request.

For those who find themselves running short on money while their case is pending and they await justice, Lawsuit Financial can help avoid eviction or foreclosure, pay funeral and burial or medical expenses, put food on the table, or pay any other important financial obligation.

We provide a non-recourse lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding. Someone desperate for money will, almost always, settle his/her case for less than appropriate value. Strategic lawsuit funding will often prevent this from happening and will, in most cases, pay for itself with increased case proceeds.

All that is needed to be eligible for lawsuit funding is a strong case; there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Once we received an application and appropriate case documentation, we can determine approval and funding amount within 24-48 hours. If the lawsuit is successful, we are repaid from the case proceeds; if the case fails, we lose our money. If the case resolves at significantly less than predicted case value, we provide an appropriate compromise. With lawsuit funding you have nothing to lose.

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.

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.

Call Lawsuit Financial today for a free, no-obligation consultation and to see if we can provide immediate financial relief when you need it most.

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. Contact us today for a free, no-obligation evaluation of your case.

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?

Post-Settlement Lawsuit Funding Helps Pay the Bills While You Wait

Congratulations, you won your lawsuit! So why are you still struggling to pay the bills? While it may be a known fact that personal injury lawsuits can take months, even years to wind through the legal process, most people do not realize even after a case has settled how long it could take to actually receive the settlement. The defense could file an appeal or make a request to delay or parcel out the settlement into payments over a long period of time. The problem is that most seriously injured plaintiffs are already cash-strapped, especially if unable to work. When there are bills to pay - mortgage/rent, utilities, medical expenses, and necessary daily living expenses such as groceries, post-settlement lawsuit funding can bridge the gap until compensation is received.

With over 16 years’ experience in the legal finance industry, Lawsuit Financial has provided non-recourse cash advances with no upfront fees or monthly payments before, and after a settlement or verdict has been determined. We require no upfront fees or monthly payments; we are not repaid until settlement funds become available. If there is no settlement, there is no repayment.

If you are a plaintiff who has reached a settlement that has not paid out, post-settlement lawsuit funding may be your solution to avoiding financial implications, such as foreclosure or a poor credit score. Our funding application is quick and easy, online or over the phone. Once we receive case documentation, we can review and fund a case in as little as 24 hours because we base funding decisions solely on the strength of your case, not personal credit or employment history. Contact us today to see how we may be able to help you get back on your feet financially! There is no obligation; you have nothing to lose and quite possibly everything to gain.

Bigger Isn’t Always Better!

We have all heard the saying that bigger isn’t always better, and this is especially true in business. Big corporations can be seriously lacking in areas like customer service and communications with clients compared to their smaller company counterparts. The litigation funding industry is no different.

In the legal finance industry, there is a long list of funding companies, of various size. Lawsuit Financial is on the smaller side, but we are big when it comes to experience and customer service. Our company is attorney-owned and operated. Mark M. Bello, our C.E.O. has over 37 years’ experience as a trial lawyer and sixteen years as a leading expert in the lawsuit funding industry. Customer service is a top priority. We all know how frustrating it can be when calling a large corporation and being bounced around from person-to-person or dealing with a different person that is unfamiliar with the issue resulting in explaining the same situation over and over.

At Lawsuit Financial, we value every client and take pride in our personal, customer-oriented service approach; we know every client by name, not an account or case number. Many companies don’t care why the client seeks funding. At Lawsuit Financial, we think that does a disservice to the client. When calling with a meritorious case, seeking funding that trends expensive, a discussion of a clients’ financial “needs” versus “desires” is important. "Lawsuit funding is a very valuable service to someone who can't get the money they need to pay the mortgage, daily living expenses and other critical bills," says Mr. Bello.

Lawsuit Financial doesn’t stop there; providing a lawsuit cash advance to a client is not our only responsibility. We take time with each client to understand their financial situation and offer the best solution to improve their financial picture during their pending claim, and beyond. Our first-of-its-kind, FREE Client Resource Center (CRC), provides direction and knowledge to our clients to help them “get back on their feet” and ensure they are taking the right steps for their financial future. A professional CRC representative will conduct a one-on-one consultation to determine steps our clients can take. We take clients beyond the obvious steps and get into the real issues by identifying bill assistance programs that can help with paying the rent, medical bills, utility bills, credit card bills, and more.

Because time is of the essence for most clients, we do everything we can to make the process as quick and simple as possible. We don’t require a lot of documents like many larger funding companies so in most cases, we can provide a cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. Our main goal is to get money in our clients’ hands fast in order to help them with their financial emergency.

Many companies charge a host of fees: underwriting fees, shipping fees, application fees, wire fees, transaction fees, etc. Then, they roll these fees into the contract and the amount the client “received” in funding includes all of these fees. As profit begins to accumulate on the advance, it is also accumulating on these fees. At Lawsuit Financial, we offer a flat-fee funding approach and disclose all costs verbally and in bold print of our contract. We also offer a guaranteed compromise provision if the case doesn't achieve predicted value.

Most of our clients come to us based on a recommendation from a friend, family member or an attorney who has used our services in the past. These testimonials attest to how we do business.

If you would like to see how Lawsuit Financial can help you with a lawsuit cash advance on your personal injury claim, contact us toll-free at 1-877-377-7848 or visit us online. Let Lawsuit Financial prove that bigger isn't always better!

Lawsuit Funding: Effective Way to Relieve Financial Strain during a Pending Lawsuit

In the battle for money damages in personal injury lawsuits, a typical plaintiff lacks the financial resources to wait out the litigation process. Without adequate savings or help from family and friends, many will settle for less than full case value. Others will seek lawsuit funding. But, what is it and how does it work?

Lawsuit funding was created to help to ease the financial strain on plaintiffs while waiting for a settlement or verdict. It is a process that provides plaintiffs with timely and strategic cash advances to pay necessary bills and expenses.

Unlike a bank loan, lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance, meaning repayment is only required if, and when, the plaintiff successfully settles his/her case. If the plaintiff loses, the cash advance is waived in its entirety. There are no monthly payments. An applicant does not need to have a job and credit standing doesn’t matter.

Applying for lawsuit funding is a quick and simple process and it cost nothing. Simply complete an online application. We handle the rest. The only qualification to receive lawsuit funding is retaining an experienced attorney and having a lawsuit that has a fighting chance to win. When reviewing a case for funding, we examine many factors including:

• How strong is the liability of the defendant?
• What are your injuries?
• How much are your medical bills and lost wages?
• What are the policy limits of the defendant’s insurance?
• What available insurance do you have?
• In what state and jurisdiction did the accident happen?

Once approved, the cash advance can be transferred to your bank account in as little as 24 - 48 hours.

Lawsuit Financial
can fund cases nationwide. Although not a complete list, we fund:

• Plane Crash Lawsuits
• Auto Accidents
• Construction Accidents
• Medical Malpractice
• Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
• Premises Liability/Slip & Fall
• Products Liability
• Traumatic Brain Injuries
• Train Accidents
• Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Texting School Bus Driver Causes Fatal Accident

While never anticipated, a bus accident cannot only cause serious physical and emotional suffering, financial hardship as well. Like most personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits, a bus accident injury claim can take months, even years before a settlement is reached. For some people that live paycheck to paycheck and can't afford to wait for case resolution, lawsuit funding becomes a viable option.

Six months after a fatal school bus accident in Tennessee, police have concluded that the bus driver was texting while driving. In fact, it was determined that he sent and received multiple text messages leading up to the time of the December 2014 accident. Additionally, the investigation revealed some alarming issues regarding the lack of oversight and supervision of the private school bus contractor. According to the investigation, the driver made a sharp turn, crossed a concrete median and slammed into another bus, causing that bus to flip over. Two students and a teacher’s aide died at the scene, several others were injured; the negligent bus driver sustained serious injuries. As the police were nearing the conclusion of the investigation, the bus driver died. While it appears his death was of natural causes, an autopsy has been ordered. Although his death means there will be no criminal charges stemming from this accident, three separate wrongful death lawsuits have been filed against the bus driver and the owner of the bus.

Due to the complexity of the lawsuits, these families may be experiencing financial duress to the point where help is needed. Lawsuit funding is available to pay the mortgage/rent, funeral expenses, utilities, groceries, and any other important bill or expense while waiting for a settlement to be reached. A lawsuit cash advance gives plaintiffs a strategic advantage by providing leverage against the insurance company so the plaintiffs avoid accepting inadequate settlement offers. The application process is quick and easy because funding is based completely on the strength and merit of the lawsuit. We do not charge application or upfront fees, nor do we need a credit check or employment verification. Additionally, there are absolutely no payments made until the case settles. Most importantly, funding is on a non-recourse basis meaning if you do not win or settle your case you don’t repay the lawsuit cash advance.

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. When you need help with life’s necessities, contact Lawsuit Financial. Our bus accident lawsuit funding service is designed to provide rapid financial when you need it most. When you know your bills and expenses are covered, it is much easier to fight for justice.

Lawsuit Funding Available for Victims of Recent Gas Explosions

There have been a number of gas explosions in the past year. Last year, eight people were killed in East Harlem. Federal investigators found a crack in a Con Ed gas main near the site and a separation between that main and a smaller pipe. Another explosion claimed the life of a woman and destroyed 55 homes. That explosion was triggered by contractors who accidentally hit a gas main at the condo complex. In February 2015, a natural gas explosion leveled a home and injured 15 people, two critically in a neighborhood at the New Jersey shore. Seven of the injured were gas company workers trying to locate the source of a leak that filled the neighborhood with a strong gas smell. Investigators later determined the gas leak was caused by a cracked 2-inch steel main distribution line buried underneath a road. A month later, an explosion destroyed three New York City apartment buildings in Manhattan's East Village neighborhood, killing 2 and injuring 22 others. Initial evidence showed signs of physical tampering with the gas line or meters.

Determining liability in a gas explosion often requires extensive investigation. Depending upon where the fault lies, a number of parties could be held liable. Lawsuits in these types of cases take time and incredible amounts of resources to reach a settlement. For many victims, waiting for fair compensation is not a viable option if foreclosure, eviction, and car repossession are looming. Rather than settle too soon, for too little, plaintiffs may seek lawsuit funding.

A pre-settlement lawsuit cash advance helps plaintiffs cover financial obligations while pursuing a settlement. All that is needed to qualify is representation by an experienced attorney and a case with merit. There are no upfront fees, no monthly payments, and no credit checks. There is also no risk because repayment is only made if, and when the case is won.

If you have been the victim of a gas explosion due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, you may seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. If you need assistance locating an experience attorney, Lawsuit Financial would be happy to recommend one, free of charge, from our nationwide database. You may also qualify for lawsuit funding. Complete our free, online application or give us a call; one of our representatives is always available to answer your questions. Once we receive your application, we will talk with your attorney for case documentation. If approved for funding, cash can wired directly into your bank account in as little as 24. It’s that simple so why wait? Call Lawsuit Financial today and see how we can help you.

Lawsuit Financial Can Meet Your Financial Obligations in Pending Wrongful Death Lawsuit

According to police, a woman was killed in an auto accident when the driver of a Ford F-150 drove through a red light at a high rate of speed before slamming into her Honda Accord. Although the accident is still under investigation speed appears to be the only factor; police said the negligent driver was not under the influence. According to local residents, the road where the accident occurred is dangerous because drivers must transition from 65 mph to an abrupt stop at the intersection.

Intersection accidents can occur due to driver negligence, poor signage, poor traffic patterns or improper design of the roadway or intersection, or malfunctioning traffic lights. When evaluating an intersection accident a personal injury attorney will look at all aspects of the accidents to determine liability against the government entity and the other driver.

Winning a wrongful death lawsuit takes time especially when it involves proving the government was aware of a significant roadway danger, but failed to fix it. During the litigation process, the victim may struggle to meet financial obligations due to medical expenses, loss of income, funeral and burial expenses, and other expenses. Lawsuit funding helps address financial obligations so plaintiffs can avoid settling too soon, for too little.

Applying for funding is quick and easy with Lawsuit Financial because we determine if a case is viable for a lawsuit cash advance based solely on case documentation - medical reports, accident reports and statements surrounding the accident. There is no credit check or employment verification. Additionally, we do not require upfront fees or monthly payments. Best of all, our lawsuit cash advances are not paid back until the case successfully settles. Should the plaintiff lose the case, the repayment is completely waived.

To learn more about our funding process, discuss how we can assist with your financial needs, or to apply for a lawsuit cash advance call our office at 1-877-377- 7848 or visit us online.

Lawsuit Financial Takes the Financial Burden Off Plaintiffs

Why does a plaintiff involved in personal injury litigation need pre-settlement funding? Lawsuit cash advances, sometimes called "lawsuits loans", can help serious accident victims who might otherwise have trouble paying medical bills, mortgage or rent payments, car payments, or other living expenses while waiting for their personal injury lawsuit to resolve or a settlement to be determined. Even if they win their case, sometimes victims don't receive their settlement for months, even years. While insurance companies have all the time and money to wait out a long legal process, most plaintiffs do not. A person pursuing a lawsuit who is desperate for immediate cash is not a positive influence during settlement negotiations. When expenses become a huge financial burden, this person will, almost always, settle too early, for too little because they lack other options. Lawsuit Financial offer another option.

If you are a cash-strapped plaintiff in a pending lawsuit, we will take on this burden for you and get you the money you need now with a lawsuit cash advance against your pending claim.

For many, income and savings can’t keep up with the bills especially for those unable to work.

Lawsuit Funding Benefits Slip and Fall Victims

In some cases, physical damages may be long-lasting, even permanent. While victims may never be made whole, money can ease the burden. But, slip and fall cases are often very complicated; there are many factors to consider when determining fault.

Lawsuits Seek Answers in Fatal Accident by Tractor Trailer Equipment with Alert System to Avoid Crashes

Accidents between an auto and a truck can be serious or deadly for the occupants of the car because of the large weight differential between the auto and the truck. A plaintiff filing a lawsuit because of injury or death may want to consider lawsuit funding to relieve financial pressures while waiting for case settlement.

Five Georgia nursing students were killed after a tractor-trailer failed to slow down and smashed into stop-and-go traffic. The semi ran into the back of a Ford Escape, then rolled over a Toyota Corolla before hitting a tanker. The Corolla burst into flames with three students trapped inside. Four other nursing students were driving in the Escape. According to police, four students died at the scene and three others were taken to the hospital, where the fifth one died. All seven woman were en route to the final day of nursing clinical rotations at a Savannah hospital at the time of the accident.

Families of the deceased have filed lawsuits against the truck driver, his employer, and Total Transportation of Mississippi, among others. The lawsuits claim the truck driver did not brake, made no effort to avoid colliding with the stopped vehicles on the roadway, and was traveling just under 70 mph as he approached vehicles stopped by the other accident.

While the lawsuits will not bring their daughters back, the families of the deceased seeks answers. Although an inspection found that the tractor trailer was installed with an alert system designed to warn the truck drivers to stop before hitting the cars, it is unknown whether the device was working. If so, why didn’t the driver heed the warning? Why did he not see the long line of traffic with brake lights? Was he fatigued? Was he distracted by a cell phone? The families also hope this fatality will be a wake-up call to all trucking companies.

As an experienced legal funding company, we understand how difficult the litigation process can be especially if the bills are piling up. With a lawsuit cash advance, we can help you get back on your feet and maintain financial stability until the case settles. We provide funding based on the strength of the case, not credit or work history. Once an application is completed and approved, the lawsuit cash advance can be available within 24 – 48 hours.

Lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, so nothing is paid back until you receive your case settlement. If, for some reason, you don't win your case, the repayment is completely waived. It is no longer necessary to allow corporate defense attorneys to force you to settle prematurely for a fraction of the case value.

Lawsuit Funding Helps Family When Medical Misdiagnosis Caused Severe Brain Damage

Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose a medical condition is a common form of medical malpractice that can result in permanent disability or death. If any harm resulting from a medical misdiagnosis could have been prevented, the patient may have a viable medical malpractice lawsuit. To understand your legal rights, it is important to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Once the litigation process is underway, a lawsuit cash advance can help pay the bills until justice is done and compensation is received.

Here is a hypothetical example of how lawsuit funding can help plaintiffs.

A woman was admitted to the emergency room after suffering several days of severe headaches. After numerous test results, she was discharged and told to take prescribed pain medicine. The next morning, she suffered paralysis on one side of her body. Returning to the ER, doctors determined she suffered an aneurysm and left with severe brain damage and the inability to more the right side of her body. She requires around-the-clock care. It was later discovered that doctors overlooked a cyst on a CT scan during the first trip to the ER.

The family filed a medical malpractice lawsuit on her behalf, but the case was taking much longer than their finances could sustain. Cases like this are hard fought and, in the right situations, excellent candidates for lawsuit funding. A lawsuit cash advance helped pay medical expenses and the family’s daily household bills, until justice was served and compensation received. All that was required for approval was a one-page application and case documentation from their attorney. There was no need for collateral, a credit check or employment verification. The family paid nothing until the case settled, at which time repayment came from the proceeds of the case.

A funding decision is typically available within 24 – 48 hours after receipt of all pertinent information. Because funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, repayment is only made when the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, the repayment is waived. It is financial peace of mind while a family waits for justice.

If you are in a pending lawsuit and have no other avenues of financial assistance, consider lawsuit funding. The call is free; the advice and funding can be a lifesaver.

Three Teens Dead After High-Speed Crash in Metro Park

Every year thousands of teens die in traffic accidents—often as a result of the teenage driver’s excessive speed, lack of experience, or inattention. A speeding driver, especially and inexperienced one, is less able to negotiate turns and to steer around hazards. It is relatively easy to lose control and collide with another vehicle or an obstacle such as a guardrail or pole. Serious injuries and fatalities are a likely outcome.

Three 17-year-olds were killed and two injured when their speeding Jaguar went off the road, crashed through a guardrail and careened into the river. The vehicle came to a stop on its side halfway in the water. Four of the teens were ejected from the vehicle; only one was wearing a seat belt and had to be rescued from the water by firefighters. Three of the four occupants ejected were pronounced dead at the scene. The two survivors were taken to a local hospital; one remains in critical condition. After pulling the vehicle out of the river, investigators found "remnants of alcohol," but said they would not know if the occupants were under the influence until the toxicology reports came back. It is still unknown who was driving the vehicle or if other factors besides speed contributed to the fatal accident.

Some of the families may decide to file a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit against the young driver. While a lawsuit can help, they usually take some time to reach a settlement or a verdict. Meanwhile, bills must be paid; can sometimes encounter financial strain. Lawsuit funding, a lawsuit cash advance, can ease this predicament.

The main purpose of lawsuit funding is to help plaintiffs survive financially during the litigation process so that they are not forced to accept less than a fair settlement just because they need money now.

Lawsuit funding can assist with mortgage/rent payments, funeral costs, medical expenses, and other household living expenses. There is no credit check or employment verification in applying for funding. A lawsuit cash advance is available by phone or online, and is contingent on the outcome of your case. The only collateral needed is a pending lawsuit. Approvals can be made within 24 - 48 hours. If approved, there are no payments until the case settles. If the case is lost, there is no repayment.

If you have been involved in an auto accident and are undergoing serious financial challenges while waiting for your settlement, contact Lawsuit Financial for a complimentary evaluation of your case.

Faulty Signal May Have Caused Fatal Auto Accident

If you are one of the many people injured or who lost a loved one in an auto accident and you need lawsuit funding, Lawsuit Financial may be your answer.

It was a similar scene that several area residents have seen before. A pedestrian lost his life while crossing the busy intersection at the same time as a truck. Residents say that despite it being the busiest intersection in town, the crosswalks aren't properly synced. One witness said, "Sometimes it will say go when it's not time to go, or you'll be waiting for a long time when there are no cars. When there are cars, it will tell you to go."

While the accident is under investigation, family members of the deceased may wish to seek legal advice to understand their rights. If the driver was found negligent, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed against him and his employer. If it is proven that the accident was caused by an improperly designed road, an electronic malfunction, or faulty traffic lights, the government entities can be held accountable. In a case involving a government entity, there will be an extensive investigation of the roadway and its history, especially critical because the road has been the site of previous accidents.

Bringing a lawsuit may afford compensation to reimburse you for lost wages, medical expenses, and other expenses as a result of the accident. In addition, a personal injury settlement can help to offset the funeral expenses of a loved one and provide non-economic damages for pain and suffering. Unfortunately, proving a dangerous roadway caused an auto accident can be a long legal process and difficult to prove; government bodies have strong defenses put in place by the government itself. If it is determined that a cause of action exists for a lawsuit and the family needs financial assistance during the lengthy legal process, lawsuit funding may be a viable short-term solution.

Before applying for lawsuit funding, the family must be represented by an experienced attorney. After completing a funding application, Lawsuit Financial will review certain factors of the case to determine its strength. If approved for a lawsuit cash advance, the client will sign a contract and we will wire funds within 24 – 48 hours. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification, and we do not charge any upfront or monthly fees. The only time we are paid is when the case successfully settles, at which time repayment comes from the case proceeds. If the client loses the case, the cash advance is completely waived.

If you are a plaintiff struggling financially during a lengthy personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, consider lawsuit funding. Call Lawsuit Financial for a free, no-obligation consultation or to apply.

Lawsuit Funding: It's This Simple!

Anyone involved in a personal injury case can tell you that being involved in a lawsuit is a stressful process. More often than not, the insurance company will often delay compensation, then the least possible settlement. It could take months, even years to see justice. The last thing you want to do during this time is worry about insurmountable medical bills, lost wages and various living expenses. If you find yourself in need of financial assistance to make ends meet, consider lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit cash advances can provide financial stability until your case settles. This type of funding is not like a traditional loan. Lawsuit funding is provided solely on the strength of your case and repayment is made from the proceeds of your settlement. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments and employment history doesn’t matter. Even if you have bad or no credit, lawsuit funding is a viable option, quite possibly the only option available to you during this difficult time. Best of all, if you happen to lose your case and receive no settlement, you are not expected to repay the cash advance.

In order to be eligible for lawsuit funding, all you need is a pending lawsuit and attorney representation, whether awaiting trial, a settlement, or payment of your settlement. The next step is to complete a one-page application. Once received, we will ask for case documentation from your attorney to make a funding decision. If your case is approved, and after a contract is signed, we can overnight the cash advance or send funds via electronic bank transfer within 24 – 48 hours. Then, pay your bills and let your attorney focus on obtaining the best settlement.

Lawsuit funding is an important decision; it's not right for everyone. Learn about your options by contacting Lawsuit Financial.

Financial Assistance While Waiting to Settle A Personal Injury Claim

Auto accident victims have a common question – how long will it take to settle my case? This is an obvious question because victims want to put the accident behind them, but also want compensation for their loss, sooner rather than later, especially if injuries meant the inability to return to work. Unfortunately, most insurance companies will deny, delay, and defend a claim. An experienced attorney will fight for the best settlement possible, but filing a lawsuit and waiting out the litigation process can take months, even years. Time is not on the plaintiff’s side, especially a cash-strapped one. With limited options to pay even their basic needs, plaintiffs may consider help from family or friends or max-out credit cards. Family and friends may be unable to provide the necessary cash and credit card companies still require monthly payments. That leaves a plaintiff with two choices - settle with the insurance company now, knowing it is a low settlement offer or apply for lawsuit funding.

What is lawsuit funding?
Lawsuit funding is a cash advance (not a lawsuit loan) provided to plaintiffs who are involved in pending litigation through no fault of their own and need financial assistance. It is based on the merits of the case - what the funding company thinks the case will ultimately settle for.

Who is eligible for funding?
Anyone who has filed a lawsuit and are represented by an attorney, or who has settled a lawsuit and awaiting payment, is eligible for lawsuit funding.

What can the cash advance be used for?
The money can be used any way the client would like, but it is recommended that funding be used for “emergency” needs, such as medical expenses, mortgage, car payments, putting food on the table, etc.

How much can a plaintiff receive?
The amount of funding received depends on the details of the case.

How is the cash advance repaid?
Repayment of the cash advance, with interest, is made once the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, repayment is waived in its entirety. Additionally, there are no monthly payments or upfront fees.

What is needed to apply for funding?
The only requirement to apply is completion of a one-page application by the plaintiff and case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification.

How long will it take to receive the cash advance?

Once application and case documentation is received, if approved, funds can be available in as little as 24 hours.

If you are in a pending personal injury lawsuit and don't have the financial ability to wait out the litigation process, consider lawsuit funding to provide the financial relief you need.

Lawsuit Funding Can Work For You!

Serious injuries from an auto accident can disrupt your life physically and emotionally. Often the losses extend to your finances, especially if injuries left you unable to work. The more complicated the personal injury lawsuit, the longer it usually takes to reach a fair settlement. Because insurance companies have a financial advantage, they are in a position to deny, delay, and defend legal proceedings. Waiting months or years for a settlement can take a toll and you and your family. While accepting a low settlement offer may be tempting, it is usually not in your best interest. When you can no longer afford to wait for compensation you deserve, when you need money to pay immediate bills and meet your family’s basic needs, lawsuit funding can work for you.

With a lawsuit cash advance, you can pay expenses such as the mortgage, car payments, utilities, and out-of-pocket medical expenses. When not stressing about your finances, it’s easier to focus on recovering from your injuries while your attorney fights for fair compensation.

Lawsuit funding is a safe alternative to a bank loan because it better protects your interests as repayment is contingent on receiving a settlement. Lawsuit funding is also risk-free; if your case is lost, you owe nothing. Qualifying is easy; there are no credit checks or employment verifications; funding is based on the merits of the case.

Don’t compromise your ability to get the compensation you deserve. If you have a pending personal injury claim and have hired an attorney, you already qualify. With our streamlined application process, you can be approved for funding as quickly as 24 hours, and the lawsuit cash advance can be deposited directly into your bank account or sent via overnight mail. Call us toll-free at 1-877-377-7848 or complete our online application form. Our representatives are waiting to work for you!

Lawsuit Funding Bridges the Financial Gap until Justice is Served

Many auto accident victims who have suffered serious injuries and loss of income will struggle to pay not only daily household expenses, but additional bills as a result of the accident. Even in the most “cut-and-dry” case, a settlement can take years. When the financial strain of medical expenses and other bills becomes too much to bear, insurance companies, more often than not, will use a plaintiff’s economic hardships to their own benefit. When this happens, the plaintiff may settle for an amount that may not be enough to cover even medical expenses. A better option may be to apply for lawsuit funding.

What are the benefits of lawsuit funding?

1. The client can use the money for anything they wish, but usually will pay medical and/or funeral expenses, avoid foreclosure or eviction, make car payments, buy food, and pay other essential living expenses.

2. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments.

3. There are no credit checks.

4. There is no employment verification.

5. The client can receive enough money to cover critical expenses, but not enough to negatively impact recovery at settlement. In fact, there is an advantage to requesting cash advances over the course of the litigation process. By requesting cash advances on an as needed basis, it forces financial discipline; the plaintiff is more likely to spend the money only on the necessities. Funding in smaller increments is also less costly for the plaintiff because the repayment is based on cash advance amount at the time the funding was provided.

What are the risks of lawsuit funding?

There are no risks to the client; lawsuit funding is based solely on the merits of the case. The legal finance company assumes all the risk “buying” more time for the client’s attorney to receive a larger cash settlement. Funds are only repaid if, and when, the client successful settles the case. If the suit is not successful for any reason, the client's obligation to repay the cash advance is completely waived.

What is involved in the application process?

Lawsuit Financial knows how desperate financially strapped plaintiffs can be, so we are dedicated to making the application and approval process quick and easy. Simply complete a one-page online application or call 1-877-443-4711; we handle the rest. The only qualification to receive lawsuit funding is retaining an experienced attorney and a strong case.

How long is the approval process and how long will it take to receive funds?

Once we receive a funding application and case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney, we immediately review the case. If approved for funding, Lawsuit Financial will prepare a contract for signature and wire funds directly into a client’s bank account within 24 – 48 hours.

The bottom line – lawsuit funding helps solve a plaintiff’s financial problems allowing them to wait for full case value. If you have been injured, disabled, or lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, if the bills are piling up, and if your life has been interrupted in a way nearly impossible to recover from without significant financial help, contact Lawsuit Financial. We may be able to help bridge the financial gap until your case settles.

Action News Exposes Deadly, Outdated Guardrails

Winning a wrongful death lawsuit resulting from a dangerous road accident involves proving the government was aware of a significant roadway danger, but failed to fix it. It can be a long legal process, but successful cases not only benefit the victims, but indirectly force changes in dangerous road conditions that can save lives - changes that might not otherwise occur at all. During the litigation process, the victim may struggle to meet financial obligations due to medical expenses, loss of income, funeral and burial expenses, and other expenses. Lawsuit Financial may be able to help; we provide financial support to plaintiffs known as litigation funding.

Last April, the 25-year-old was driving a 1998 Ford Mustang eastbound on Ronald Reagan Parkway when he lost control of his vehicle and ran off the road before striking a breakaway cable terminal (BCT) on the end of a steel guardrail. Investigators determined the BCT penetrated the driver's side of the car and sliced through the driver's seatbelt. He died on impact. Despite speeding as the cause of a fatal auto accident, the family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Gwinnett County Department of Transportation alleging that a redesigned guardrail could have prevented death and minimized the severity of injuries.

In October, Channel 2 Action News found there are more than 300 outdated BCT guardrails still lining Georgia roadways, despite a federal government determination that the guardrail ends were "too stiff" to protect drivers. Although the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recommended removal and replacement dating back to 1998, it stopped short of requiring states to immediately find and remove all BCT’s, instead allowing the replacements to happen gradually as departments of transportation completed routine roadwork. After Channel 2 exposed the problem, Georgia’s DOT found nearly 2000 of the dangerous guardrails just on Georgia's interstates. The guardrails are being removed on a case by case basis where construction projects exist. A GDOT spokesperson said there is no timeline for when the outdated BCT guardrails will be removed across the state; it all depends on funding.

Any time a guardrail spears and penetrates its interior that should tell you that the guardrail design is faulty. Holding a negligent corporation accountable for a defective product not only compensates the victim for damages, but also allows the problem to become publicly known so that hopefully changes will be made and lives are saved. But, dangerous road cases are often long and drawn out. During this time, a victim may struggle to meet financial obligations.
Unfortunately, cases like this take years to settle. In that time, the victim’s family may be struggling to meet financial obligations due to the loss of income and other expenses as a result of his death. Applying for litigation funding may be the perfect solution. While waiting for the case to travel through the legal system toward resolution, a lawsuit cash advance can help with urgent financial issues and other necessities of life funding. Addressing financial obligations means plaintiffs can avoid settling too soon, for too little.

Applying for funding is quick and easy with Lawsuit Financial. There is no credit check or employment verification. Additionally, we do not require upfront fees or monthly payments. Best of all, our lawsuit cash advances are not paid back until the case successfully settles. Should the plaintiff lose the case, the repayment is waived.

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, Lawsuit Financial may be able to provide you the financial support needed. We will evaluate your case and if approved, you can have funding within 24 - 48 hours. Call our office at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) or visit us online. The call is free; the advice is priceless.

Lawsuit Funding Provides Financial Relief . . . Financial Relief Provides Options

If confronted with the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, the loss can be incalculable financially. Who will pay the bills and funeral expenses? How will you recover from loss of income? Despite a valid claim, the defendant will not accept accountability and justly compensate you without a fight. While deny, delay, and defend tactics prolong justice, the bills keep coming in; you need cash now. Confronted by financial pressures, plaintiffs in these types of lawsuits often accept less money than entitled because of financial obligations. Don’t let the insurance company starve you into an early settlement. Lawsuit Financial can provide wrongful death lawsuit funding.

A lawsuit cash advance is a viable option to lessen the financial burden while the case progresses. Without the pressure to settle, your attorney has time to obtain the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. The application process is free and easy; there are no credit checks or employment verification. There are also no monthly fees required and we are repaid only upon settlement. Best of all, Lawsuit Financial assumes the risk. In the unexpected event that your case does not settle, you are not responsible for repaying the cash advance.

Lawsuit Funding Helps Send Strong Message

With death comes grief for loved ones left behind, but when the death is caused by negligence of someone else, it is even harder to accept. The injury or death can lead to exorbitant costs including medical bills, long-term care, even funeral and burial expenses and emotional damages. It may also result in loss of earnings. A lawsuit can provide fair compensation, while also sending a strong message that will help prevent someone else from being injured by a similar mistake or accident. Once a lawsuit is filed, if the victim/grieving family is in need of financial assistance until the case settles, lawsuit funding may be an option.

Although nothing can bring back a loved one, with the financial pressures reduced, a family is better able to fight for compensation deserved. Lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse basis; the cash advance is waived in its entirety if the case is lost. Within 48 hours of receiving a funding application and case documentation, Lawsuit Financial can review a case for a cash advance. If approved, we can wire the funds directly into a client’s account as quickly as 24-hours. How can we do this so quickly? We provide funding solely on case merit. There are no credit checks, employment verification, or collateral needed.

Are you the victim of medical negligence? Have you filed a medical malpractice lawsuit and are in need of fast cash until your case settles? While cases are time-consuming and a settlement may take years, our lawsuit funding process is not. Contact our offices for a free consultation or to apply; our knowledgeable team is ready to help.

Lawsuit Funding May Be Available for Victims of Harbour Island Bridge Accident

Three pedestrians were injured, one fatally when a vehicle jumped a curb and started driving on a sidewalk in downtown Tampa before hitting a light pole. The pole fell on one of the victims; the vehicle hit an elderly couple. The elderly man died from his injuries. Police believe the driver who caused the accident suffered a medical episode. He was not injured, but admitted to the hospital for the medical condition. The driver is cooperating with the investigation. He may not face charges, as long as there are no medical restrictions on his license.

While the investigation is underway, the injured victims and their families may choose to speak to an experienced auto accident attorney to protect their rights. Auto accident lawsuits can present some unique challenges, especially in a case such as this where a medical condition may be the cause. An experienced attorney can help determine if the victims have the right to seek compensation.

During a lengthy litigation process, the victims may find themselves burdened by the expenses associated with medical expenses, loss of income, or even death of a loved one. There is immediate financial assistance available to victims to cover medical expenses, household bills, lost income, and funeral expenses. It is called lawsuit funding.

A lawsuit cash advance is available by phone or online, and is contingent on the outcome of your case. There are no application fees or monthly payments; the only collateral needed is a pending lawsuit. Once an application and applicable documentation is received, funding decisions can be made within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment is made once the case settles, but if lost, the repayment is excused.

If you have been involved in an auto accident and are undergoing serious financial challenges while waiting for your settlement, contact Lawsuit Financial for a complimentary evaluation of your case.

Lawsuit Financial Removes Financial Pressures during Pending Claims

After being a victim of an automobile accident, a plaintiff may be left with serious or debilitating injuries an unable to return to work. This will often lead to a financial strain on the victim and mounting unpaid bills such as medical expenses, mortgage payments, and utility bills. Some plaintiffs have difficulty even putting food on the table. Often times, insurance companies use deny, delay, and defend tactics to wear down an injured plaintiff in order to settle a case for far less than case value. What can plaintiff do when all financial resources have been exhausted? Call the lawsuit funding experts at Lawsuit Financial!

So what is lawsuit funding? Despite many people calling it a “lawsuit loan,” lawsuit funding is not a loan. In simple terms, it is a cash advance against an expected settlement used to help pay basic living expenses until a settlement is reached. Cash advances are provided on a non-recourse basis meaning that if an advance is made, but nothing is recovered, the plaintiff is not required to re-pay the advance. Additionally, there are no credit checks or employment verification.

Now that you can see why lawsuit funding is not a loan, if you have filed a personal injury lawsuit and need money to pay the bills, give us a call or complete our online funding application. If you need an attorney to be considered for lawsuit funding, we can help with that too. We will contact your attorney and then review your case. If approved, you can have cash in hand within 24 – 48 hours. It really is that easy! Again, you owe absolutely nothing until your case is successfully settled.

A Risk-Free Solution to Paying the Bills during a Pending Personal Injury Lawsuit

Any personal injury victim who is represented by an attorney in a pending lawsuit and in need of fast cash before their case settles, is eligible to apply for litigation funding.

What is litigation funding?

Litigation funding is a non-recourse cash advance to help plaintiffs pay the bills and put food on the table during a pending claim. It is the financial buffer that allows them to avoid settling their case too early for considerably less than case value.

After an auto accident caused serious back injuries, Jacob was unable to return to work. He required several surgeries and doctors would not say confidently that he would ever be able to resume his job as a construction worker. The income from his wife’s job was not enough to sustain this family of four. Although Jacob filed a lawsuit and his attorney said the case was worth at least $800,000, the defendant was dragging its feet. Jacob’s family was facing foreclosure when he learned about litigation funding. Within 48 hours, we were able to fund Jacob $3,000, and two months later another $2,500. His case settled six months later for $1.2 million, at which time he repaid the cash advance and applicable interest.

Many plaintiffs are forced to accept a low settlement offer because they need immediate cash. With litigation funding, a plaintiff doesn’t have to wait months or years for a case to settle, risking debt or a bad credit rating. Litigation funding is based solely on the merits of a case. There is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. Because funding is provided on a non-recourse basis there is no risk to the plaintiff; if the plaintiff loses the case, repayment is completely waived. Once an application is received, we request case documentation from the attorney. In most cases, a funding decision can be made within 24 hours. If approved for funding, the money can be spent anyway the plaintiff chooses, with no restrictions.

If you were suddenly injured in an auto accident and unable to work, would you have a means to pay the bills – mortgage, rent, car payments, tuition, medical expenses, utility bills, groceries? How long would that money last? What if you filed a personal injury lawsuit, but the insurance company offered an inadequate settlement offer or was denying the claim causing your case to drag on indefinitely? Do you know how you would stay financially afloat?

Until you are the victim of someone else’s negligence, you may not realize that insurance companies use every tactic in the book to persuade you to settle for less than you deserve. They will de-value your claim, or use stalling tactics in an effort to wear you down to the point that you accept their offer. Do not feel pressured to settle your personal injury claim prematurely. There may be a viable way out with litigation funding. If you are interested in learning more about litigation funding and how you may benefit, call us today at 1- 877-377-7848.

What is at the Core of Many Higher Personal Injury Settlements?

If you have suffered a personal injury, physically or emotionally, as a result of an auto accident you may wish to seek compensation for damages incurred. While a personal injury attorney will represent you on a contingency basis, your case may take several months – sometimes a year or more – to settle. In the meantime, you may struggle financially to pay basic living expenses, such as mortgage, car payments, utilities, and groceries, as well as expenses associated with the accident. When that happens, don’t be forced to settle for less than your case is worth because you don’t have the money to withstand the delay tactics of the defense. With pre-settlement lawsuit funding, you will be better able to withstand the lengthy legal process and ultimately receive a more favorable settlement.

Insurance companies have the time, power, and money that plaintiffs do not. They will "delay, deny, confuse and refuse” and use the lengthy process to their advantage to "starve" a needy plaintiff into a less-than-fair settlement. If an offer is made in a time a significant financial need (like when the plaintiff is behind on mortgage, car or health insurance payments), it is likely to be considered or accepted by the desperate plaintiff.

The core purpose of pre-settlement lawsuit funding should be to improve case results by removing the plaintiff's financial incentive to settle too early, for too little. With a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs keep valuable assets safe, while giving their attorney time to achieve full case value. Although sometimes referred to as a “lawsuit loan”, lawsuit funding is NOT a loan, but rather a non-recourse cash advance. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments; repayment is made if and when the case is successfully settled. If the plaintiff loses the case, the funding is completely waived; the plaintiff owes the funding company absolutely nothing and keeps the advance. Other unique features of lawsuit funding is that there are no credit checks or proof of employment required.

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, and put in a tough financial situation while waiting for your case to settle, consider pre-settlement lawsuit funding. It is easy to apply, online or by telephone. Your attorney provides only minimal case documentation which is reviewed by the funding company to determine the merit of the case and establish funding amount to be approved. Once approved, a contract is submitted for signature and cash can be available in as little as 24 hours.

To find out if your case qualifies for lawsuit funding call us toll-free at 877-377-7848 or complete our online application.

Lawsuit Funding Benefits Cash-Strapped Victims in a Pending Lawsuit

“Auto accident victims should never be forced to settle for less than fair compensation because of pressing financial needs. When facing foreclosure or bad credit, many attorneys will recommend lawsuit funding to their clients.” ~ Mark Bello, CEO Lawsuit Financial Corporation

You have been seriously injured in an auto accident and can’t return to work. You have filed an auto accident lawsuit, but your attorney has stated that it could be months before a settlement is reached. You still need to pay the mortgage and other household bills, and you need to put food on the table. When your finances are preventing you from waiting for a fair settlement, consider lawsuit funding.

Suffering injuries from negligent drivers or defective products or design in vehicles, such as seat belts, brakes, tires, and gas tanks is devastating enough. You may not have the funds to pay the bills and family members may not be able to help. Banks don't typically loan money to auto accident victims. Furthermore, money from a bank is a loan that must be paid back, with monthly payments. Lawsuit funding may be the only option to prevent you from settling too soon and for too little.

Lawsuit funding is cash advance against your lawsuit. There are no upfront fees, no monthly payments, no credit checks, and no employment verification. Because lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance, the money is only repaid if the funded client wins the case.

Settling a personal injury lawsuit early may seem like the right thing to do when the bills are piling up, but it is usually a lost opportunity to achieve a much larger settlement, one that is closer to case value. Lawsuit Financial has successfully helped thousands of plaintiffs avoid financial devastation during a pending claim and we may be able to help you, too.

If you are in a personal injury lawsuit and it appears litigation will continue for an extended period of time, don’t become desperate and accept a settlement that is less than case value. In order to be considered for lawsuit funding, complete a free, online application. We will contact your attorney for case documentation to determine if your case has merit; employment status and credit history are irrelevant. Upon approval, funds can be deposited directly into your bank account or sent via overnight mail within 24- 48 hours. Once received, funds can be used immediately. Remember, you owe absolutely nothing until your case successfully settles, and if you lose, the repayment is completely waived. When you know your bills and expenses are covered, it is much easier to fight for justice to be served.

Fatal Hit-and-Run Accident the Result of Street Racing

Street racing, all too often, is publicized as glamorous entertainment, encouraging motorists to drive at speeds significantly in excess of those deemed safe for public roadways. It is not only illegal, but street racing is highly dangerous. Most vehicles participating in the race lack the safety equipment necessary to protect the driver in case of an accident. Additionally, because these races are conducted on the open road, innocent viewers and bystanders are also at risk; there are no barriers to protect them.

As more than 60 people gathered to watch the illegal street race in Los Angeles, the driver of a Ford Mustang lost control, jumped the sidewalk and slammed into the three spectators. Two onlookers were killed, one seriously injured. Both racing drivers fled the scene. Police do not have an estimate of how fast the car was traveling, but said the impact caused one of the victims to be launched airborne into a nearby parking lot. The pavement at the scene was covered in tire skid marks.

A local resident, who often attends the street races as a spectator, said racers often use a product known as VHT, a black compound sprayed or poured onto the street to increase the traction of a car's tires. He also said the races are usually held weekly pairing two cars at a time, one pair right after the other in quick succession so they can finish the event quickly before police find out.

Both drivers fled the scene, but recently the driver of the Mustang turned himself in. He will most likely face charges, but may also face lawsuits from the injured victim and the families of the deceased. If these families file a claim and struggling to pay the bills, they may find financial assistance in the form of a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding will help pay necessary bills and expenses, such as medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, auto payments, rent, and other damages as a result of injuries or loss. 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. These legal finance transactions are based on the strength of the case; there are no monthly fees, no credit checks, and not employment verification. Funding can often be available in less than 48 hours after receipt of a completed application.

Lawsuit funding is not for everyone. 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. We have reviewed thousands of cases nationwide and work hard to ensure that every funding application is carefully reviewed. If you are a personal injury victim in need of cash until your settlement is reached, apply today with Lawsuit Financial. We are one of a few legal funding companies where funding comes from our own resources. We never broker out, which means optimal privacy and confidentiality to you.

Family Award $16 Million in Wrongful Death Lawsuit against Drunk Driver and a Nursing Home

There are no words to describe the loss of a loved one, especially due to the careless actions or negligence of someone else. Whether from medical malpractice, auto accidents, product liability, and workplace fatalities, when a wrongful death occurs, the victim's family has the right to file a lawsuit. Though nothing can bring a loved one back, holding the negligent person or party accountable for their wrongful actions can provide some measure of solace.

Senior Living hired a women in 2012 as a certified nurse. Company policy requires testing of an employee suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs and termination of an employee who is under the influence while on duty. In May 2013, the woman was intoxicated at work, unable to walk without falling and unable to drive home. A nurse on duty notified the nursing director; the drunk woman was driven home. In July, the woman was deemed drunk by another employee and was sent home. Then, on August 24, 2013 she was once again drunk and told to go home. This time the woman was allowed to get behind the wheel. She drove more than 20 miles before slamming into another vehicle, killing the driver and injuring his wife and two children. According to Texas Department of Public Safety, the drunk driver had a blood-alcohol level of 0.40 at the time of the wreck; a driver is considered intoxicated at 0.08.

According to Texas law, if a company sends an employee home from work because the employee is intoxicated, the company must take reasonable steps to prevent the intoxicated employee from causing an unreasonable risk of harm to the public — such as drive the employee home; call a cab; call a family member; call the police if necessary. Despite at least three known incidents of being intoxicated on the job, the company never tested the woman for alcohol or fired her for being under the influence while on duty.

The family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the drunk driver and her employer. The jury deliberated about five hours and determined that the fault was 65 %Senior Living’s and 35% the negligent driver. Although this widow will receive compensation for her loss including lost wages, medical expenses, and funeral expenses, it has taken 18 months. She would have been a perfect candidate for lawsuit funding. Lawsuit funding is a financial tool that gives plaintiffs the staying power to wait for a fair settlement. It may be the only financial lifeline to paying medical expenses, funeral expenses, mortgage, and other important bills.

After reviewing a wrongful death lawsuit funding application, if approved, funds are usually available within 24 – 48 hours. There are no monthly payments, no credit checks, and no employment verification; funding is based solely on the strength of the case. Repayment is only made if, and when the lawsuit is won and settled. In the event the plaintiff loses, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety because lawsuit funding is a non-recourse transaction.

If you or a family member have been directly affected by an accident similar to this one and struggling financially while awaiting a settlement, call Lawsuit Financial or complete an online application for a free case funding evaluation.

Woman Slips into Coma after Hospital Fails to Detect Ectopic Pregnancy

A California wife, and mother of seven, was 12-weeks pregnant with her 8th child when she woke up on Valentine’s Day with severe abdominal pain. Her husband drove her to Anaheim Regional Medical Center where an ultrasound and some tests were performed. According to reports, the doctors told the expectant mother that she and her baby were find and the pain was “normal”. She was given a prescription of the painkiller, Percocet to alleviate the pain and told to rest. On their way home, her husband stopped at a local drugstore to fill the prescription. Upon returning to the car, he found that his wife unconscious and she had stopped breathing. Paramedics were immediately alerted and the woman was rushed back to Anaheim Regional Medical Center. After re-admission, it was discovered that the pain was due to a ruptured ectopic pregnancy which caused internal bleeding. Subsequently, she slipped into a coma the next day. As the 36-year-old woman remains in a coma in an intensive care unit, her family is demanding answers. The children range from 7-months-old to 18-years-old.

Ectopic pregnancy medical negligence claims often arise because doctors ignore the safe rule that lower abdominal pain in female patients of reproductive age, or those in the early stages of a pregnancy, may be due to an ectopic pregnancy until proved otherwise. While this family is surely struggling physically and emotionally, it is important to consult an attorney to determine if they have a valid case for a medical malpractice lawsuit. If the negligence of medical staff or hospital can be proved, the family may be entitled to monetary compensation.

Malpractice negligence cases often involve multiple parties such as – doctors, nurses, and hospitals. The discovery phase is often a long process, taking years to settle. However, plaintiffs often face financial hardship because they simply do not have the financial resources to wait out the process, but the bills keeping coming in. That’s where Lawsuit Financial can help. While the case progresses, lawsuit funding can be used to lessen the financial burden.

Serious Auto Accidents: Why Lawsuit Funding is Ideal

No one ever suspects that they’re going to be involved in an auto accident. When it does, most of the time the accidents result in little or no injuries, a settlement is quickly reached and everyone moves on. Unfortunately, many cases drag on for months, even years especially when the accident resulted in serious injuries or death. These cases typically lead to significant financial loss on top of the physical and emotion burdens. From medical bills to lost wages, the aftermath of an accident can be devastating. When this happens, plaintiffs often consider accepting a less-than-favorable settlement offer because they cannot afford to wait out a long, legal process. If you find yourself in a similar situation, rather than accepting less than you deserve, Lawsuit Financial has a solution – pre-settlement lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit Funding Prevents Premise Liability Plaintiffs from Falling into a Financial Abyss

Waiting for a settlement from a premises negligence lawsuit, but need money now to pay your bills? If you have been injured because of unsafe conditions on someone else's property, Lawsuit Financial can provide a lawsuit cash advance while you wait for compensation from your lawsuit.

Premises liability cases generally involve properties or businesses where an unsafe or dangerous condition exists which should have been repaired, replaced, or eliminated. This could be a spill on the floor, broken stairs, or other unsafe or defective condition. In such cases, the injured victim must be show:

• The property owner knew or should have known the dangerous condition existed;
• The property owner failed to correct the condition or adequately warn others; and
• As a result, the victim suffered a personal injury.

Because the burden of proof in these cases is difficult to overcome, premise liability claims typically require the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney. However, the wheels of justice turn very slowly and compensation sought could be months, even years away. A seriously injured or disabled person, one not working as a result of an accident, is at a significant disadvantage against a powerful, well-financed insurance company. Lawsuit Financial, offers a no-risk solution to get plaintiffs the cash they need now, when they need it most.

With lawsuit funding, plaintiffs can pay the necessary bills - house payments, rent, car payments, groceries, utilities, medical bills, tuition, and other important obligations. These lawsuit cash advances are made against the future proceeds of the case and not against valuable personal assets. After receiving a funding application, Lawsuit Financial will request appropriate case documentation to determine the strength of the case. If approved for funding, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. There is no need for good credit, employment or collateral. There are not monthly payments and repayment is completely contingent on the outcome of the case. If the case is lost, the repayment is waived.

If you have been involved in a premises liability personal injury case, hired an attorney, and filed a case in court, but need financial assistance until a settlement is reached, lawsuit funding may provide the help you need. Call Lawsuit Financial or visit us online to see how we might help.

A Tower of Mist Causes a Deadly Accident

Police and firefighters said there is no question as to what caused a flash freeze on the Shippingport Bridge that led to a fatal accident involving three vehicles.

Emergency responders said that a pick-up truck lost control going north and struck a car coming south on the bridge, then hit another pick-up truck. The driver of the car was killed. The drivers in both pick-up trucks suffered minor injuries. The first responders said the ice made standing and walking on the bridge difficult.

The bridge is next to the Beaver Valley Power Station which has two stacks that emit warm, moist air. When the steam from the cooling towers lands on the bridge during extremely cold temperatures, it becomes icy very quickly, creating a flash freeze. A police chief said because it is a state-owned bridge, anytime such conditions occur, his department alerts PennDOT. He said that PennDot was actually making its rounds salting the bridge the day of the accident. First Energy, operator of the power plant, said the company has never been notified of a problem with ice on the bridge. PennDOT said that the bridge is on a regular maintenance route, but they also have never been notified of a recurring problem with ice on the bridge.

Who Is At Fault?
The driver who lost control may share some responsibility—after all, it is a driver’s responsibility to pay attention, monitor speed, and be aware of dangerous road conditions. But, PennDOT could also be held responsible if it failed to post signs warning of hazardous conditions in winter due to the mist from the stacks or knew of the dangerous conditions that day, but failed to salt the bridge in a timely manner. Possible, First Energy could be partially accountable if it can be proven the company was negligent in providing proper safety conditions.

Government agencies are potentially liable for auto accidents caused, in whole or in part, by defects in highway design and maintenance although the liability is subject to doctrine of “sovereign immunity” in a particular state. Although sovereign immunity limits the government’s liability in some cases, there are exceptions, which vary from state to state, such as:

• The road became dangerous because of a change in physical conditions.
• The government agency knew of the dangerous conditions and had reasonable time to obtain funding and make repairs/improvements.
• Dangerous or misplaced road construction markers and barricades.
• Dangerous curves and defective guard rails.

If the family of the deceased believes the accident was due to the negligence of PennDOT or First Energy, they may should seek advice from an experience attorney who can help you determine if the family has a valid claim.

Proving that a dangerous roadway caused an auto accident is often a long and difficult legal process. Successful cases will not only benefit the victims; of equal importance will be the improvements/corrections in dangerous road conditions that can save lives – changes that, without litigation might not otherwise happen. In the meantime, the victim’s family may struggle financially. This is where Lawsuit Financial can step in.

Lawsuit funding is immediate cash without credit checks, employment verifications or monthly payments. Unlike a traditional bank loan, lawsuit funding is based solely on the details of your case. Clients make no payments until the case settles. If the case is lost, our clients owe us nothing.

Metro-North Train Accident Victims May Wish to Apply for Lawsuit Funding

Victims of public transportation accidents, such as the recent Metro-North accident, have the right to seek compensation for damages. Unfortunately, these types of claims take years to settle, leading to financial ruin for many. In such cases, Lawsuit Financial can assist injured plaintiffs with obtaining lawsuit funding.

An investigation is ongoing in the horrific Metro North-SUV accident in New York that killed the driver of the car and five people aboard the train. Over a dozen others were injured. It was the deadliest crash to ever occur in the railroad's history.

The accident occurred when a crowded commuter trained slammed into the SUV which was, for whatever reason, on the tracks. The force of impact dislodged a third rail that supplies power to the train. When 400 feet of the electrified third rail snapped, it splintered upward penetrating the car, before piercing the train and breaking into 80-foot segments. Combined with gasoline from the SUV, a deadly inferno erupted. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, the entire interior of the first rail car was burned out.

It is still unknown why the SUV was stranded on the tracks. A witness said the vehicle was hit by the dropping crossing gate and then the driver moved forward before being hit by the train. The NTSB said the crossing gates and lights were working properly. The railroad crossing had undergone a number of upgrades in recent years, including the installation of brighter LED lights, "Do Not Stop on the Tracks" signs and new traffic signal control equipment. Plans to install a third set of flashing lights 100 to 200 feet up the road to give motorists a few seconds' extra warning was never carried out. The DOT said it was too early to tell if the extra lights could have prevented this tragedy. Additionally, officials are looking into the rail's unusual design to determine if there is a connection as to why the accident was so deadly. The third rail is a common feature of subway systems, but Metro-North and the Long Island Rail Road are believed to be the only U.S. commuter railroad that uses the design configuration in question.

Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits will likely follow and lead to some sort of financial compensation for those injured and for the families of those killed. Inevitably, it will be a long litigation process that could leave some in financial hardship, yet the bills must still be paid. When there are no other financial resources to bridge the gap until case settlement, lawsuit funding is a viable solution.

Lawsuit Financial knows how to provide immediate cash to financial-desperate plaintiffs. This type of funding comes with a promise to repay the advance if, and when, the case settles. You read that correctly – the money is only repaid if a settlement is reached. In addition to no credit checks or employment verification, there are no restrictions on how the money is used. Our clients can use the money as they seem fit, although we recommend it to be used for outstanding bills and everyday living expenses. Because we are a direct legal funding company, we can review and approve a client for funding in as little as 24 hours.

Personal Injury Victims Avoid Debt during a Pending Lawsuit

Why does a plaintiff involved in personal injury litigation need pre settlement funding? Lawsuit cash advances, sometimes called "lawsuit loans," can help serious accident victims who might otherwise have trouble paying medical bills, mortgage payments, car payments, rent, or other living expenses while waiting for their personal injury lawsuit to resolve or a settlement to be reached. Even if the case successfully settles, sometimes the victims don't receive their money for months, even years. Why? Insurance companies and defendants have all the time and money in the world to wait. A person pursuing a lawsuit who is desperate for immediate cash is not a positive influence during settlement negotiations. Insurance companies know this and will deliberately delay the process hoping it causes a financially-desperate plaintiff to settle too early and for too little. You can level the legal playing field with pre-settlement lawsuit funding.

In the past, personal injury victims had no place to turn for immediate financial assistance. Banks and credit unions do not provide loans when a loan candidate has only potential lawsuit recovery as collateral. Today, plaintiffs have a better chance to receive fair settlement or award rather than accepting a low settlement because of cash constraints.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance provided to plaintiffs before settlement occurs, or after settlement is reached and before settlement funds are paid out by the defendant. A lawsuit cash advance requires no credit check and no employment verification. It is also completely non-recourse legal funding, meaning we assume the risk that the lawsuit will be successful. If you lose your case, you owe us nothing!

Even if you have already filed a lawsuit, it may take years before your case is resolved. Mounting bills, lost wages, even your ordinary living expenses can become a huge financial burden to you and your family. Leverage our money and get a better result in your case. To learn more about our pre-settlement lawsuit funding services or to apply for a quick and easy lawsuit cash advance, complete the online application or call Lawsuit Financial toll-free at 1- 877-377-7848.
