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.

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.
