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.
