The tragedy occurred in Georgia; a pipe insulator who worked on site at a grain processing plant was only 26-years old at the time of his death. He was elevated and harnessed on a 15 foot high scissor lift that was close to a recompression evaporator, filled with hot liquid waste.
While harnessed and hanging near the evaporator, one of the outlets gave way shooting a stream of hot liquid and steam directly at Garcia. He could not disengage from his harness and sustained chemical burns over 90% of his body. He died in hospital the next day.
Garcia’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit on his behalf, and were subsequently awarded $6.7 million. The case took a long time to resolve and this was a man who sent much of his wages to his family, back home in Mexico. How does a dependent family handle its finances after losing its principal means of support to an accident? Well, while waiting for a fair settlement or verdict, the family could have taken advantage of a service referred to as litigation funding to help get by. Lawsuit funding is a quick and easy method to access fast cash that will help a plaintiff pay all his/her necessary bills right away. In addition, applying for a lawsuit cash advance only takes a few minutes and it may be done either online or by calling the legal finance company directly.
After a plaintiff’s application has been approved, pre-settlement funding dollars are sent quickly and expeditiously either by wire or by check. When the plaintiff receives that money, they immediately pay off their medical bills or any other costs associated with the accident and/or deal with their usual regular financial obligations. Once these important obligations have been satisfied, a plaintiff can now patiently wait for a fair resolution of the case; he/she now has the choice to turn down any ridiculous offers made by an insurance company. Resolving immediate financial hardship with lawsuit funding allows a plaintiffs to obtain a fair and equitable settlement. It may be a good fit for your lawsuit; the call is free; the advice is priceless.
