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.

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.

Nine years ago, a Massachusetts woman died while delivering her fourth child. Earlier this month, the family obtained justice when a jury awarded her family $4 million.

The woman became anemic during pregnancy, which placed her at a higher risk of life-threatening complications during and after a Cesarean section (C-section). The lawsuit alleged that during the procedure, one of the doctors punctured her bowel and the woman lost a substantial amount of blood. Additionally, she suffered from an atonic uterus (condition where the uterus fails to contract after birth), which was treated but relapsed several hours later. The lawsuit further stated that the doctor failed to properly monitor her condition and give her an immediate blood transfusion. By the time blood products and plasma were ordered and administered, the young mother went into cardiac arrest and died. The cause was determined to be “a pulmonary amniotic fluid embolism following cesarean delivery of intrauterine pregnancy” according to her autopsy report.
