The safety of drugs has been a major issue for years, not only with patients but in the legal arena as medical malpractice attorneys fight for justice for victims.

A Kentucky woman filed a lawsuit against three drug manufacturers alleging that she suffered heart failure and cardiovascular injury from a popular type 2 diabetic medication. According to the lawsuit, the woman had taken the medication for approximately two years before being diagnosed with signs and symptoms. As a result of her injuries, the woman says she can no longer work as she had before, substantially reducing her earning capacity. The complaint also states that neither she or her doctor were properly informed about the risk of heart failure linked to the medication and alleges that they were purposefully deceived by the manufacturers.

During a lengthy litigation process, the issue of financing and being able to pay the day-to-day living expenses may become an issue; an issue that could drastically affect how a case may progress. If plaintiffs are worried about their financial situation, lawsuit funding may be an option.

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.

April is National Financial Literacy Month as an effort to highlight the importance of financial literacy and teach Americans how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits.

Most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. That means they will not be prepared financially when an emergency, such as a serious auto accident, occurs. Once a lawsuit is filed, a personal injury victim may wish to seek lawsuit funding to replace immediate income and bridge the gap until a settlement is reached.

With over 19 years’ experience, Lawsuit Financial is one of the oldest litigation funding companies in the industry. We have developed an excellent reputation among plaintiffs and attorneys for our honesty, care, and personal touch.  When a client contacts us, we don’t just take their application.  We take time with each client to understand their financial situation.

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.

As most of my readers know, on March 24 students and community members of the March For Our Lives movement will take to the streets in cities around the country to demand that their lives and safety become a priority.
Conceived as a response to incidences of gun violence around the country, specifically the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, the marches have been primarily organized for and by high school students.
As a Sandy Hook Promise Leader and an active supporter of common sense gun reform, mental health curriculum, and student safety, it was only natural that Jennifer Geiringer, VP of Marketing at Lawsuit Financial, would get involved.

A six-year-old girl was killed after a school bus she was riding in overturned in Georgia. Five others, including the driver, were treated for minor injuries.

According to reports, the bus was traveling downhill. As the driver attempted to make a 90 degree left turn, the bus flipped on its side and slid several feet into the grass.  The little girl sustained serious injuries in the crash; she died that night in the hospital. The bus driver has been charged with a homicide by vehicle in the first degree and reckless driving, a misdemeanor. It is speculated that she was driving too fast; the posted speed limit on that stretch of roadway is 25 miles per hour.

The state Motor Carrier Compliance Division is assisting police with the ongoing investigation to determine what caused the crash, including whether speed was a factor or whether there was a mechanical failure or other explanation. In the meantime, the parents of the deceased young girl have sought attorney representation. It is unclear at this time if they will be pursuing legal action.

A Philadelphia couple have filed a lawsuit alleging the man suffered serious head injuries after a ceiling tile and container fell on him while working at his desk.

According to the claim, the man was sitting at his cubicle when, suddenly and without warning, the ceiling tile with container crashed down onto his head. The lawsuit alleges that his employer and two other companies “failed to properly repair the area in, on, of and/or above the ceiling tile, created a dangerous condition in the same area, and failed to remove the container in the same area.”  As a result, the man suffered a concussion, post-concussion syndrome, headaches, and neck pain, among a number of other serious injuries. His wife is suing for loss of consortium.

Ceiling collapse lawsuits can take many months, even years to come to reach a final settlement. However, if injuries leave the victim unable to return to work and the bills are piling up, the wait can be financially devastating. Litigation funding is a perfect solution.
