When we place our loved ones in the care of a nursing home, we expect they will receive quality care. Unfortunately, nursing home negligence and abuse are all too common due in part to overworked nurses, under-trained staff, and/or a simple lack of interest by nursing home staff. A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for damages. It may also be a means to improve safety and quality of care.

An 84-year-old Virginia woman was admitted to a nursing home in September 2015, with varying degrees of cognitive impairment. She relied on nursing staff for medical services and to help her bathe, eat and dress. One day, her daughter received an anonymous phone call from a staff member at the facility, telling her about an incident and that she should check on her mother’s well-being. That call eventually led to a lawsuit against the nursing home, its administrator, the director of nursing, two nurses and the facility’s management company.

According to the claim, the resident was tied to a wheelchair with bed sheets and injected with a powerful narcotic drug in an effort to keep her quiet. The physical and chemical restraints forced on the elderly woman were reportedly kept in place overnight, according to the complaint.

You never choose to get in a serious auto accident, but when it happens you will most likely be injured once again by the system when filing a personal injury lawsuit.

The litigation process can take several months to years depending on the complexity of your case. While waiting on a legal settlement, you may feel stress and anxiety regarding to money and how you pay the bills and put food on the table. They mortgage/rent, utilities, car payments, and medical bills need to be addressed. If you are seriously injured, for an extended period of time, or permanently, how will you and your family survive financially?

When your attorney is fighting a lengthy litigation battle to get you the maximum settlement you deserve, but you need cash now, consider lawsuit funding.

Imagine that you’ve been seriously injured in an auto accident. You are unable work and the bills are piling up. You hired an attorney to help you with your claim, but things are moving slowly. You need money know or the utilities will be turned off. You could soon lose your home.

Creditors don’t care that you are in a pending lawsuit. They don’t care that the wheels of justice are turning slowly. They don’t want to hear that you will achieve a large settlement and once that happens, your bills will be paid. They want their money, and they want it now!

So what can you do?

The strains of a legal battle can be exhausting, both emotionally and physically. It can often take months, if not years, to reach a settlement, compounding financial pressures during this arduous time. Opting to settle out of court might save you time and trouble, but it could also mean getting a lesser settlement than you deserve. When financial struggles are the driving force in your decision to settle, lawsuit funding could be a better solution.

Consider this: You are on your way to work when a distracted driver sideswipes your car, sending you down an embankment. Your car is totally and you have suffered serious injuries, resulting in at least six months out of work. Before the accident, you were living paycheck to paycheck; you had little savings in the bank. Now, you not only face mounting medical expenses, but foreclosure. To make matters worse, its tax time. With nowhere to turn, you ask your attorney to settle your case at all cost.

Lawsuit Financial has a better option – lawsuit funding!

Published on:

Are you in a personal injury lawsuit and feeling pressure to settle prematurely simply to pay the bills? Most people do not know this, but plaintiffs in a pending lawsuit, represented by an attorney, and in need of fast cash before their case settles, are eligible for lawsuit funding.

Insurance companies and big businesses have all the time and money to apply delay tactics to force plaintiffs into settling for less that justice demands. For this reason, Lawsuit Financial was created.

Lawsuit Financial is an alternative source of funding for plaintiffs who typically will not qualify for a traditional bank loan. While often referred to as a “lawsuit loan,” lawsuit funding is not really a loan. It is a non-recourse cash advance that provides plaintiffs with fast cash to meet current bills and expenses rather than being forced into an unfair settlement. There is no risk to the plaintiff because unlike a bank loan there are no monthly payments and the cash advance is only repaid if the plaintiff wins the case and reaches a settlement. If the plaintiff loses, repayment is not required.

Although slip and fall accidents are more prevalent during the winter – when roads and walkways are often covered in snow and/or ice – many other conditions can increase the risk of a slip and fall accident, such as defective stairs or walkways, improper lighting, fallen debris, wet floors without “wet floor” caution signs, and falling merchandise.

While many slip and fall accidents are preventable, some are not. Injuries can range from mild to severe. Fortunately, most people walk away with only a few cuts, scrapes and bruises. Other times, these accidents result in broken bones, concussions, short-term or long-term disabilities, and more. They may require surgery and physical therapy.

Just because you were injured does not automatically result in liability on the property owner. As with any type of slip and fall accident, the proper owner is generally only liable if he or she knew about the problem – or should have known about the problem – and failed to fix it.

There are many contributing factors in many auto-pedestrian accidents; driver inattention being the most common cause.

A 38-year-old Clearwater, Florida man has been charged with two counts of fleeing the scene of a crash involving bodily harm after he struck two pedestrians on a sidewalk.

According to police, a 2003 Honda Civic driven by the man, passed through an intersection and veered off the road, striking the pedestrians. When the driver failed to stop, a witness on a motorcycle followed him to a convenient store, called 911, and detained the man until police arrived. The two pedestrians were transported to an area hospital with serious injuries.

Financially-strapped plaintiffs under financial duress do not have time to consider their best options in the legal process. They need money, and they need it NOW! With lawsuit funding, plaintiffs do not have to feel forced into accepting an early settlement offer for significantly less than full case value. A lawsuit cash advance is a safe means of receiving enough money to cover critical expenses, but not enough to negatively impact recovery at settlement.

A woman filed a personal injury lawsuit alleging that on February 2, while entering a grocery store, she fell due to a hazardous condition, causing her to sustain severe and disabling injuries. She claims she incurred pain and suffering, mental anguish and medical expenses. According to the claim, the defendant failed to inspect the premises, failed to maintain the premises in a safe condition and failed to warn of a dangerous condition. The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

This woman most likely would qualify for lawsuit funding. The application process is quick and easy online or over the phone. There are:

On the night of August 10, natural gas built up in a basement utility room at an apartment complex in Silver Springs, Maryland, leading to an explosion and fire that killed seven people. Several others were injured as they jumped from balconies or descended down burning, crumbling staircases.

Investigators are still working to unravel what caused the disaster, but say the explosion was caused by a gas leak in the meter room of the building that built up until the explosion was sparked. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said a complete investigation is ongoing and expected to continue into next year.

In the meantime, more lawsuits have been filed alleging that blame rests with the company that managed the complex and the utility that supplied it with natural gas. According to the lawsuits, both defendants had been warned “on several occasions” about the smell of gas in apartments in the summer months before the tragedy. “Defendants deliberately disregarded the danger to the property’s residents, and undertook no steps to repair the condition,” say the new lawsuits. The suits contend that the gas company failed to ensure the security of residents by not: repairing the gas leak, properly investigating and identifying the gas leak, warning residents, and/or calling for an evacuation. The suit also claims that the utility failed to perform routine inspections that would have uncovered the potential dangers and saved the lives and property of residents.

The aftermath of an accident can be difficult and confusing. The physical injuries, emotional distress, and lost wages can have a significant impact. Some victims may be seriously injured and left unable to work. In the case of a wrongful death, if the person killed was the family’s primary breadwinner, families may find themselves faced with months, even years of financial difficulty. The last thing victims and their families are most likely thinking about is gathering evidence and ensuring that a thorough investigation is conducted. But, these are key steps in seeking any legal claim; an auto accident attorney can help.

While you focus on healing from your injuries and restoring your quality of life, an experienced attorney can fight for justice and fair compensation that you deserve. Unfortunately, this often takes months, if not years because insurance companies are notorious for denying, delaying, and defending claims. In the meantime, you may find yourself going further into debt, unable to pay household bills, medical costs and other expenses. With auto accident lawsuit funding, you can get the cash you need now, usually within 24 – 48 hours.

The only requirements to obtain a lawsuit cash advance is a strong case and attorney representation. Once we receive a funding application, your attorney will provide necessary case documentation to so we can make a funding decision. Credit checks and employment status are not necessary, and there are no upfront fees or collateral required. Repayment is simply made once the case successfully settles.
