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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

After an auto accident or other personal injury, the insurance company will usually make a low settlement offer hoping the claimant will be want to settle quickly. Many injured victims, especially those unable to return to work and who are watching the unpaid bills pile up, will feel accepting the offer is the only option. In cases like this, lawsuit funding can be used not only to pay the bills and help the victim regain financial independence, but it is also a strategic tool to increase the value of the case.

Like other industries, many lawsuit funding companies heavily advertise, and you will find no shortage of this financial service on the internet.

The first step should be asking yourself why you need the money. Lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse, meaning the cash advance is only repaid if you win your case. Because the legal finance company is taking all the risks, this type of funding is more expensive than traditional financing. Therefore, if you don’t need the money to keep a roof over your head, to feed your family, make medical payments, or for other important needs, or, if you have other immediate sources of revenue, you should reconsider seeking a lawsuit cash advance.
