If you have been seriously injured in an auto accident, you may face numerous medical expenses. Who will pay these bills, especially if you require ongoing treatment or surgery and are unable to work?

In no-fault states, at least some medical expenses will be covered under your auto insurance policy, regardless of whether the accident was your fault or not. If the accident was not your fault, you can bring a lawsuit against the responsible party to recover accident-related past and future medical expenses, as well as lost wages for pain and suffering. To determine whether you have the right to file a claim, it is best to consult an experienced auto accident attorney.

Assuming a lawsuit is filed, the time it takes to reach a settlement or verdict could be months, if not years. But, insurance companies usually refuse to pay until a claim settles. This is a deny, delay, and defend tactic to get you to accept less than full case value. Sadly, it might work if you don’t feel you have other options.

A “personal injury” is that life-changing moment when you are seriously injured as the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. While the most obvious example of this is an automobile accident, a personal injury lawsuit can result from many kinds of occurrences and injuries – construction accident, a slip and fall, medical negligence, nursing home neglect, and pedestrian accident.

However you have been hurt or whatever the circumstances, a personal injury victim often experiences severe injuries and disabilities, resulting in a mountain of medical bills, the inability to work, financial and emotional stress. Even with the “best” attorney, it could take years to achieve justice.

How do you make ends meet financially?

A New Jersey family of five, including four children, were killed in an auto accident in Delaware, according to state police. One adult was taken to an area hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

According to police, a southbound pickup truck crossed the median and struck a northbound vehicle. That vehicle came to rest in the median, while the pickup continued traveling in the wrong direction down the highway before being struck by a minivan carrying the New Jersey family.

An investigation is still underway. The crash has also raised questions about the need to install guardrails.

Auto accident personal injury claims can take a long time to settle. Although insurance companies have an ethical and legal duty to act in good faith and pay legitimate claims promptly, many will deny, delay, and defend claims as long as possible. Auto accident lawsuit funding can help auto accident victims stay afloat, make ends meet, and avoid financial disaster during the litigation process.

A man suffered serious injuries and underwent numerous surgeries after a 2011 auto accident caused by an uninsured driver. Despite having uninsured motorist coverage under his own auto policy, and despite paying his premiums, the man’s insurance carrier denied his claim and refused to make medical payments. The innocent victim filed a lawsuit, which wasn’t settled for five years. During that time, his family faced financial hardship.

Suffering a personal injury in an auto accident is bad enough, but when your own insurance company refuses, in bad faith, to negotiate or settle the claim, the victim is forced to fight for his/her rights.

According to reports, the driver of a Nissan drove off a highway exit ramp and onto the grass before crashing into the driver’s side of a GMC truck stopped at a light. The truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Nissan driver was arrested and charged with causing a death while operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Police also found an open container of alcohol on the floorboard of his car, according to an incident report.

Nothing can be more devastating than losing a loved one due by a drunk driver. Funeral and burial expenses and other bills can pile up and the cost of fighting a wrongful death lawsuit can be staggering. Sometimes a lawsuit can take months, even years, before a settlement is reached.

Construction is a necessary part of keeping roads safe, but construction sites can become just as dangerous as a bad road. Accidents in construction zones typically occur because of excessive speed, drunken or impaired driving, or driver distractions.

While the underlying cause of the following fatal Illinois truck accident has not yet been publicly disclosed, the crash highlights the possible severity of a tractor-trailer accident.

Last November, a tractor-trailer driver crashed into vehicles that had slowed or stopped in a construction zone on I-55 near Hamel, Illinois. According to the Illinois State Police, several witnesses told investigators that the semi was traveling an estimated 60 mph when it struck eight vehicles, even driving over some of them. Four people died as a result of the crash; a dozen others were injured. The truck driver was charged with four counts of reckless homicide and eight counts of aggravated reckless driving.

Three people were killed when a medical helicopter crashed in wooded, rough terrain in northern Wisconsin. The pilot and two medical crew members were returning from delivering a patient to a Madison hospital at the time of the crash.

Authorities said that the Eurocopter AS350 helicopter’s GPS signal vanished shortly before 11 p.m. Approximately 25 minutes, dispatchers received a call that the chopper was missing. The wreckage was found 12 miles south of their destination. The cabin was crushed, and its rotors appeared to have been sheared off. Debris could be seen 100 yards away.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Although a preliminary report is expected within the next two weeks, a full report could take at least a year. Investigators will be focusing on the weather at the time of the crash, the pilot’s background and training, and the chopper’s maintenance logs.

In July 2015, a man, his girlfriend, and her two children were returning to Colorado when they approached a stopped vehicle on the highway. They stopped, but their Mitsubishi Eclipse was struck from behind by a flat-box truck. The force of impact was so severe that the driver’s seat was damaged; the man suffered a cervical spine injury and a traumatic brain injury that put him in the hospital for six days.

The defense alleged that the plaintiff and the third vehicle driver were at fault, but after a highly-contested trial, the plaintiff was awarded nearly $12 million.

Awaiting the conclusion of a hard-fought lawsuit cannot only be physical, mentally, and emotionally exhausting, but financially as well.

Often, the legal battle between plaintiffs and defendants is like a clash between David vs. Goliath because plaintiffs are fighting deep-pocket businesses and insurance companies. Even if the plaintiff has a strong case, legal tactics and delays can draw out the litigation process. With the bills piling up, you may feel compelled to ask your attorney to just settle. However, Lawsuit Financial has a more favorable solution.

Lawsuit funding is a risk-free cash advance that can make all the difference in your financial situation. Here’s how it works:

In the 2018 NCAA Tournament on Saturday, it seemed the Houston Cougars had victory over Michigan in the bag. How could 4 seconds change everything?

Houston’s Devin Davis was at the line with four seconds on the clock; his team was up by two points. A make would’ve meant Michigan could do no better than force overtime; two makes would’ve iced the game and pushed Houston into the Sweet 16. Davis missed both shots. Then it happened. Michigan grabbed the rebound on the second miss. In a desperate situation, freshman Jordan Poole sunk a 3-pointer from about 28 feet as the final buzzer sounded, giving Michigan a dramatic 64-63 win.

Life can also change in seconds. It is likely that few people stop to consider that simply getting in the family car can be a life-altering decision. Sadly, for too many, serious auto accidents can change their lives forever. Victims may be unable to work and earn a living. A family might have lost the sole breadwinner. While some people just need time to recover, others need surgery or may be permanently disabled.
