A New Jersey family of five, including four children, were killed in an auto accident in Delaware, according to state police. One adult was taken to an area hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

According to police, a southbound pickup truck crossed the median and struck a northbound vehicle. That vehicle came to rest in the median, while the pickup continued traveling in the wrong direction down the highway before being struck by a minivan carrying the New Jersey family.

An investigation is still underway. The crash has also raised questions about the need to install guardrails.

Auto accident personal injury claims can take a long time to settle. Although insurance companies have an ethical and legal duty to act in good faith and pay legitimate claims promptly, many will deny, delay, and defend claims as long as possible. Auto accident lawsuit funding can help auto accident victims stay afloat, make ends meet, and avoid financial disaster during the litigation process.

A man suffered serious injuries and underwent numerous surgeries after a 2011 auto accident caused by an uninsured driver. Despite having uninsured motorist coverage under his own auto policy, and despite paying his premiums, the man’s insurance carrier denied his claim and refused to make medical payments. The innocent victim filed a lawsuit, which wasn’t settled for five years. During that time, his family faced financial hardship.

Suffering a personal injury in an auto accident is bad enough, but when your own insurance company refuses, in bad faith, to negotiate or settle the claim, the victim is forced to fight for his/her rights.

A woman suffered a brain injury when her car hit a five-inch drop off and she lost control. She filed a personal injury lawsuit with the state of Louisiana, however, suing the state adds additional hurdles, which led to years before she received a settlement. In the meantime, the woman had to pay for much of her own care, such as an in-home aide. Although she was able to borrow money from the bank, she had to pay interest on the loans.

Waiting to receive just compensation over an injury due to someone else’s negligence, can be financially devastating. Complex auto accident lawsuits can take months or even years to resolve. During this time, your bills and expenses are stacking up and your injuries may render you unable to work, forcing you and your family into debt in order to simply cover day-to-day expenses. Furthermore, government agencies, insurance companies, and large corporations named as defendants have greater resources at their disposal to delay and prolong settlement of lawsuits against them. They count on the desperation of the plaintiff to either drop the case or settle for less than full case value.

That is why lawsuit funding has become a popular and effective option. If approved, you can get the money you need to stay financially afloat until your attorney can obtain fair compensation for your injuries and losses. But even after a settlement is handed down or agreed upon, the wait may continue.

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.

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.

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.
