Due to the size and weight of tractor-trailers, auto-truck accidents can be devastating, often fatal. Even when victims survive, they often suffer chronic pain and disabilities, resulting in mounting medical bills and reduced quality of life. Lawsuits drag on for months, if not years while insurance companies deny, delay, and defend claims. For that reason, seeking the right lawsuit funding company has become essential for many plaintiffs in need of quick compensation.

Two lawsuits were recently filed against a transport company alleging that a truck driver’s negligence, recklessness, and carelessness, led to serious and debilitating injuries. According to the complaints, a woman was driving a Ford pick-up truck on the interstate when her vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer. She suffered spine, chest, and abdomen injuries, a sprain of the left shoulder, and contusion of the left knee. Her male passenger also suffered from spine injuries. Both lawsuits allege that the injuries have left the plaintiffs with physical pain, impairment, and disability, as well as the loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and mounting medical expenses. The plaintiffs seek an undisclosed amount in damages.

Waiting for their personal injury cases to settle could drag on for years. Yet, for someone with pressing financial needs, waiting is not an option. Without substantial savings or friends and family to help, lawsuit funding is not only a quick and easy solution but quite possibly the only solution.

When an auto accident occurs while a negligent driver is on-the-job, the employer may be held liable for the negligent or intentional actions of their employees.

A Texas woman filed a lawsuit against a motorist and his employer, alleging negligence and reckless driving caused her serious injury in an auto accident. According to the claim, the defendant, suddenly and without warning, made a left turn from the wrong lane striking her vehicle. The plaintiff alleges that the resulting injuries have compromised her quality of life. She is seeking a trial by jury and judgment in excess of $1 million.

In addition to the physical pain, the plaintiff may suffer financial strain caused by lack of income and/or medical expenses and other accident-related bills. One means of helping her through this difficult time is through a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

There are no words to describe the loss of a loved one, especially due to the careless actions or negligence of someone else. Not only is the emotional stress and physical pain traumatic, but the economic consequences of losing someone you relied on for financial support can leave you full of fear and uncertainty and not sure what to do.

Whether from medical malpractice, auto accidents, product liability, and workplace fatalities, when a wrongful death occurs, the victim’s family has the right to file a lawsuit. The first step is to consult with an experienced attorney.

While no amount of money can ever replace a loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit can seek financial compensation for your loss. It can pay for medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, and loss of household services. A plaintiff can also seek financial compensation for loss of companionship and consortium.

A four-vehicle auto accident on the 22 Freeway in Garden Grove claimed the life of a woman and her 9-year-old daughter on New Year’s Day.

According to reports, the driver of a BMW was traveling at high speed when he rear-ended a Lexus, sending it into a barrier wall along the shoulder. The BMW then slammed into a Ford F-150 pick-up truck, causing it to overturn and skid across the freeway before both vehicles struck a guard rail. The pick-up was then struck by a fourth vehicle.

The driver of the truck succumbed to her injuries at the hospital; her nine-year-old daughter died at the scene. The BMW driver was charged with two felony counts of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, one felony count of driving under the influence of alcohol causing bodily injury, and one felony count of driving with blood alcohol .08 percent or more causing bodily injury.

A serious auto accident can result in disabling or fatal injuries leaving victims with lost income, medical bills, even funeral, and burial expenses. When finances run thin, as a lawsuit drags on, plaintiffs often turn to pre-settlement lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance that can help accident victims avoid accepting a low-ball offer from the insurance company, as well as financial disasters such as eviction, foreclosure, auto repossession, and a ruined credit score.

Unlike a traditional loan, lawsuit funding does not require a credit check or employment verification. That’s because a lawsuit cash advance is based upon the strength of the case. Other benefits are no upfront fees, no out-of-pocket costs, and no monthly payments. Best of all, repayment of the cash advance is only made once the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

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.

Eight people died, and 25 others were seriously injured, including three young children, in a crash involving a Greyhound bus and a semi-truck in New Mexico. Some of the deceased had to be identified through fingerprints and other means.

The bus was hit head-on after the semi lost the tread on its left front tire, jack-knifed, and crossed the median. The cab of the truck flipped over; the trailer landed on its side. Debris from the semi and mangled bus was scattered across the highway. Investigators will be looking at maintenance and inspection records, as well as other factors such as driver fatigue and the condition of the roadway.

Two lawsuits have already been filed against the trucking company and the semi driver. Both complaints allege negligence and cite data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration that shows the company reported three crashes in the last two years.

If you have been seriously injured in an auto accident, you may face numerous medical expenses. Who will pay these bills, especially if you require ongoing treatment or surgery and are unable to work?

In no-fault states, at least some medical expenses will be covered under your auto insurance policy, regardless of whether the accident was your fault or not. If the accident was not your fault, you can bring a lawsuit against the responsible party to recover accident-related past and future medical expenses, as well as lost wages for pain and suffering. To determine whether you have the right to file a claim, it is best to consult an experienced auto accident attorney.

Assuming a lawsuit is filed, the time it takes to reach a settlement or verdict could be months, if not years. But, insurance companies usually refuse to pay until a claim settles. This is a deny, delay, and defend tactic to get you to accept less than full case value. Sadly, it might work if you don’t feel you have other options.

A “personal injury” is that life-changing moment when you are seriously injured as the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. While the most obvious example of this is an automobile accident, a personal injury lawsuit can result from many kinds of occurrences and injuries – construction accident, a slip and fall, medical negligence, nursing home neglect, and pedestrian accident.

However you have been hurt or whatever the circumstances, a personal injury victim often experiences severe injuries and disabilities, resulting in a mountain of medical bills, the inability to work, financial and emotional stress. Even with the “best” attorney, it could take years to achieve justice.
