Facing a lawsuit can be financially stressful. Litigation funding can help a plaintiff through the tough times.

A person pursuing a lawsuit, who is desperate for immediate cash, is not a positive influence during the litigation process. Insurance companies and big corporate defendants know this and will deliberately delay the process. They will use deny, delay, and defend tactics not only to hold onto their cash longer, but in an attempt to get the plaintiff to settle too soon for too little.

For those plaintiffs that hold out, it can still take months, even years to reach a fair settlement. During this time, lost wages and mounting expenses can become a huge financial burden. A lawsuit cash advance, often termed “lawsuit loan,” helps seriously injured victims who might otherwise have trouble paying medical bills, mortgage or rent payments, car payments, or daily living expenses while waiting for their personal injury lawsuit to resolve/settle.

It is not too late for plaintiffs to obtain financial assistance during the holiday season.

You may have been seriously injured in an auto accident or slip and fall accident. You may have mounting medical bills and can’t return to work. How will you get through the holidays, let alone pay the ordinary household bills and put food on the table?

If you are in a personal injury lawsuit and it appears litigation will continue for an extended period of time, don’t become desperate and accept a settlement that is less than case value. Lawsuit Financial can not only help you pay the bills, but with a lawsuit cash advance you can level the playing field, dramatically changing the outcome of your settlement.

A Flight Life Eurocopter EC145 helicopter crashed last September, killing four people on board. Now, two families are seeking an unspecified amount in damages.

The pilot and two flight nurses were transporting a cancer patient to the hospital when the crash occurred. Witnesses reported hearing a “popping noise” and seeing a trail of smoke from the rear of the helicopter before it went down.

In a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), investigators said that one of the engines showed signs of “overheating and lack of lubrication,” a bearing in the engine was excessively worn, and the transmission could not be rotated by hand. Although the final results of the investigation are still pending, the FAA officially linked the case to a January incident in which a pilot of the same model helicopter performed a successful emergency landing.  In that incident, the pilot said he caution and warning lights went off and he heard a “hissing sound,” followed by the smell of exhaust fumes and an “orange glow” from the rear his helicopter. He activated fire extinguishers and brought the craft down safely on an airport runway.

One person was killed and four others were injured in a multiple-vehicle collision on Highway 17, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver of a Ford F-550 was traveling north when he lost control, veered through a gap in the center concrete wall and collided with three vehicles traveling in the opposite direction – a Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Camry, and Kia Sedan. The impact from striking the Kia was so strong that it rip the roof open and the woman was ejected. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The F-550 rolled onto its roof and came to a rest on the shoulder of the highway.

The CHP said they do not believe alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash, but the crash remains under investigation. Even before the investigation is complete, we encourage the family of the deceased woman, as well as those injured in the crash, to consult an experienced attorney who can help them obtain fair compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and more.

A Manhattan jury recently awarded a 24-year-old woman $71 million for injuries sustained in a 2012 auto accident. The award consisted of $5 million for past pain and suffering, $6 million for future pain and suffering, and $60 million to cover medical needs for the rest of her life. The verdict came after a three-week-long jury trial.

Three college students were on their way to Cornell College when the driver fell asleep behind the wheel, veered into oncoming traffic, and crashed into a minivan. An elderly woman in the van was pronounced dead at the hospital; the driver and her son suffered non-life threatening injuries. The three college students were treated at the hospital; one passenger (the plaintiff in this case) suffered a fracture of her lumbar spine. According to her attorney, the woman now walks with leg braces, but still suffers from neurogenic bowel.

Serious injuries are always accompanied by extensive medical bills. The innocent victim may be unable to return to work. However, lawsuits take time to reach a settlement. A lawsuit cash advance can provide significant financial relief. These advances, known as lawsuit funding, allow a family time to heal while they pay the medical expenses and other important bills. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full case value.

Suffering a personal injury in an auto accident is bad enough, but when the insurance company refuses in bad faith to negotiate or settle a claim, the impact can be devastating. Here is a case where an insurance company put their bottom line profits over their obligation to honor a contract. While the plaintiff eventually won her case, it took nearly four years.

A 41-year-old woman was a rear-seat passenger in a vehicle that was struck from behind by another car. The impact caused the Altima to strike another vehicle stopped in front of it. The passenger was treated and released at a local hospital. Although she complained of low-back pain, the woman was not diagnosed with a cervical intervertebral disc herniation and bulge until years later. Eight months of physical therapy and two epidural steroid injections did not prove successful; a neurosurgeon recommended spinal surgery.

The woman filed a lawsuit against her insurance company seeking payment of underinsured motorist benefits. Allstate disputed damages, arguing that the woman’s cervical conditions were entirely pre-existing and had no relation to the accident. After a four-day trial, the jury found in favor of the plaintiff; she was awarded $1.2 million in unspecified damages.

A 35-year-old California construction worker recently received a $2.7 million settlement for a severe brain injury he suffered when a defective scaffold broke apart, causing him to fall 20 feet.

The man was initially diagnosed with a broken jaw and two broken ankles; he also lost consciousness. A subsequent examination showed that he also suffered a brain injury, resulting in personality changes that included destructive behavior and fits of anger, as well as concentration and memory problems. The man underwent nine months of rehabilitation.

The victim file a lawsuit alleging that the scaffolding was defectively manufactured and designed, creating a safety hazard. The complaint further stated that the brackets were only supported by two welds, with no redundancy or backup margin of safety, and the design was such that the welds could not be seen or inspected.  Therefore, if the welds failed (as they did at the time of the incident), the entire structure would come down.

A woman recently settled a medical malpractice lawsuit in which she alleged negligence resulted in permanent urinary incontinence.

In 2012, a woman with multiple sclerosis underwent a hysterectomy. She claimed that during surgery the ureter was injured and as a result, a second surgery was required to re-implant the ureter. That surgery, she alleged, caused permanent urinary incontinence. The patient also stated that she would require surgery every four years in order to change batteries in the implant.

The defense disputed any violations in the standard of care and maintained that the patient’s incontinence was due to her pre-existing multiple sclerosis. The patient asserted that her multiple sclerosis was in remission at the time of the hysterectomy and she had not experienced incontinence for years prior to the surgery.
