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 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.
