Most of us rarely, if at all, think about being in a personal injury lawsuit. However, there could be a day when you need the services of a personal injury attorney, as well as a litigation funding expert.

Imagine for a moment that you were seriously injured by a distracted driver who ran a red light and slammed into your vehicle. Although a personal injury attorney can help you receive compensation for your loss, the legal process is complicated and can take months, if not years, to culminate. Even in the strongest case, the outcome is unpredictable, and the amount of judgment is not always clear. Furthermore, while your case winds through the legal system, no money is paid to you. How will you support yourself and your family financially with the mounting medical expenses and replacing your damaged car, especially if you are unable to return to work?

If you are a plaintiff in a pending lawsuit, obtaining litigation funding may be the answer while you fight for the highest possible settlement.

Hit-and-run crashes are usually prefaced by an act of negligence, such as speeding, texting, talking on the phone, or driving under the influence.

A 5-year-old girl was in front of her family’s home when she was hit by a vehicle. The driver fled the scene and has yet to be identified. The little girl remains in the hospital with a broken femur, skull fracture, and bleeding on her brain.

A serious accident like this usually results in hefty financial costs, as well as emotional and psychological trauma.

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.

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.

Despite the efforts of countless groups spreading awareness of the dangers of drunk driving, it remains common. Every day, 28 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Each one is avoidable.

Two people were killed in a rear-end crash on a Charlotte, North Carolina highway. The North Carolina State Highway Patrol said that their vehicle was traveling very slowly or stopped in the middle of the interstate when an alleged drunk driver hit them. The negligent driver has been charged with two counts of death by a motor vehicle and one count of driving while impaired. An investigation is underway.

With fatal auto accidents, lawsuits are often filed against a negligent driver. However, waiting for a drunk driver accident lawsuit to settle can take a long time. It may take a year or more. During this time, many plaintiffs will become overwhelmed with medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and other costs associated with the accident, on top of ordinary living expenses.

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.
