Bus Accident Kills One And Injures 23 Reported Litigation Funding Corporation of Michigan

May 31, 2011

This bus accident was devastating for all those involved. Unfortunately, the experienced driver was killed on impact.

The busload of churchgoers was not expecting anything to happen on their way to a retreat. It was a typical California day and was slightly overcast, followed by periods of sun that melted the snow on the roads. The school bus was on its way to a planned retreat when the accident took place.

“The bus was rounding a curve on wet pavement when the driver lost control and the bus swerved into the oncoming lane of traffic. It slammed into a Nissan Murana, ripped a telephone pole out of the ground and slid at least 20 feet down an embankment. At the time of the accident, there were 23 people onboard, including the driver. The driver, a professional, was pronounced dead at the scene and 10 others were taken to various hospitals with serious injuries,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.

The police report said the highway where the crash took place was wet from melting snow, but there was no ice. They plan to conduct further investigations into the crash and find any possible eyewitnesses to the event. “There had to be some reason the driver lost control of his bus. The police will also be searching for any cell phones or other devices that may have been used prior to the wreck,” Monroe said.

The families of the children hurt in this accident will likely want to consult with their personal injury lawyers and find out how they can file claims for medical expenses. Some of the injured may be in hospital for a long time and may need therapy and rehab when they get out. For cash strapped families who need to pay unexpected medical bills along with their usual monthly obligations, they will be hard pressed to find the money.

One source of cash for them is to contact a litigation funding company and fill out an application form for a lawsuit cash advance. “Pre-settlement funding is easy to apply for and all the plaintiff needs is the details of their case. If it looks like a winner, the fast cash lawsuit loan will be out the door within 48 hours or less,” Monroe said.

Plaintiffs needing an emergency loan to help them pay their bills until their case goes to trial will be pleased to know that they do not need to pay any upfront money and there are no other hidden expenses of any kind. They get what they get: a lump sum to put in the bank and pay their bills. Legal funding is a real bonus for plaintiffs, as it lets them also refuse to take cheap offers from insurance companies looking for a fast settlement.

Drag Racing Critically Injures One Reports Litigation Funding Corporation of Michigan

May 17, 2011

Drag racing is never a smart move.  This head-on crash resulted in critical injuries for one participant, and, remarkably, no deaths.

“It appears that a Hyundai Tiburon and a Honda Civic were drag racing, neck and neck at high speeds on a highway, when the Hyundai rammed into the front of a police cruiser. The officer was helping a colleague with a traffic stop,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.

The driver of the Hyundai, Alejandro Ramos, sustained critical injuries, and the officer made it out virtually unscathed. Ramos was airlifted to the hospital for emergency care. The Honda driver sustained no injuries, nor did his passenger, even though the police think the Honda also hit the patrol car. This was an accident scene right out of a “Fast and Furious” movie; there were vehicle parts all over the road, flashing lights, sirens and medical personnel assisting the critically injured Hyundai driver.

The police report speculated that the two drivers were drag racing immediately prior to the accident. Both drivers will be charged with operating to endanger, speeding, marked lane violation and driving without a license. “Imagine, two unlicensed drivers out on the highway, with passengers, drag racing and slamming into a police cruiser. The truth is often stranger than fiction,” Monroe said.

While there is criminal culpability here, there is also negligence; someone will speak to a personal injury lawyer about filing a lawsuit to recover compensation for his or her injuries. If a lawsuit is warranted and filed, the victim may qualify for lawsuit funding and s/he can call the legal finance company, toll free, or complete an easy online form at their website.

If a plaintiff qualifies, pre-settlement funding can be forwarded within 24 to 48 hours. Use it to pay important bills and expenses, and then wait for justice without financial pressure to settle too early for too little. Refuse inadequate offers from greedy insurance companies. Use lawsuit funding and leverage their money to a fair resolution of a personal injury case.

“Plaintiffs have a number of advantages when it comes to legal funding,” Monroe said. “For instance, they do not pay upfront money, there are no hidden fees, they do not need to go through a credit check and they do not make monthly payments on their lawsuit cash advance. If you find yourself in a situation where you have been badly hurt and have no money to pay the bills, call a litigation funding company and find out how they can help you.”

Crib Recall Over Entrapment Issues says Litigation Funding Corporation of Michigan

May 15, 2011

If it is not strangulation cited as the reason for recalling children’s accessories, it may be suffocation and entrapment. This newest recall involves cribs.

“It’s frightening how many products for kids have been recalled within the last few months alone. It calls into question who is making them and who is testing them. How could they possibly miss the fact that a child could slip between crib bars and become trapped and suffocate?” asked Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan. “Who does the testing for things like this and allows questionable products to flood the marketplace?”

In what may be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to kid’s accessory recalls, IKEA is calling back over 26,000 Sniglar cribs in the U.S. and Canada due to the possibility of entrapment and suffocation. It turns out that the bolts provided with the crib, which are supposed to hold the mattress in place, are not long enough. This causes the mattress support to come away from the crib sides and collapse, possibly trapping a baby between the mattress and the bars. The crib is the Sniglar non-drop-side, full-size crib, model number 60091931.

“The company advises if the support bolts do extend through the nut, they are safe and it is not included in the recall. It is only models where the bolts are too short to go through the mattresses that are involved,” Monroe said. The company is offering a free repair kit to fix the problem.

“While it’s vital that the company did issue a recall for these cribs, what happens if a family that bought one does not hear about the recall or got their crib from a friend as a gift and they have no idea there is a problem – until something bad happens?” Monroe said. The reality is that despite a recall being in place, not everyone may hear about it. Any serious injuries or fatalities as a result of this defective product would likely be the manufacturer’s responsibility.

When it comes to defective product lawsuits, often the case is slow to get to court because of the massive amount of detail needed to put together a case like this. The family would, while they were waiting for justice, need money to pay their medical bills for any injuries their child may have sustained, plus cash to deal with their usual bills, like the rent, mortgage, car payments, credit card debt and tuition.

They could find fast cash to handle their bills by applying for pre-settlement funding. Litigation funding has not been around all that long, but it is increasingly being accessed by cash strapped plaintiffs who need money quickly to handle their financial problems, brought on as a result of an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. “Why not give it a shot if you need money to pay your bills until your lawyer gets your case to court?” Monroe said.

Litigation Funding Corporation Warns That Workplaces May be Deadly After Collapsing Scissor Lift Kills Worker

May 3, 2011

Workplaces may be deadly. This lawsuit involved two men, trying to maintain heavy machinery, when it collapsed.

“It was pretty much a typical day at work for the two men involved in this accident. They went to work, expecting it to be a typical day. It was anything but, as they worked on a scissor lift, at a steel manufacturing plant. The lift was 40 feet in the air and the two men were repairing it – usual maintenance for the men and the machine – when it collapsed,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.

One of the fallen workers was pinned directly under the lift. He was extricated by emergency response personnel who had arrived on site and airlifted to the nearest hospital for emergency care. The other worker died at the scene as the result of his multiple injuries.

“There will be a complete investigation into the accident to determine why the scissor lift suddenly dropped to the floor. It may be a matter of defective equipment or something else entirely, but they would need to get to the bottom of this catastrophe,” Monroe said.

The families of both workers will likely be speaking to personal injury attorneys to find out what their legal rights are and how they may recover compensation for their loss, wrongful death compensation for the survivors of the deceased worker, serious injury and pain and suffering damages for the injured man. While they consider their legal options, they should know if they decide to pursue litigation, they may also pursue legal funding to help pay their bills.

When an accident happens and there are medical bills on top of the usual monthly expenses, families are often put in a difficult position financially. They may not have enough money to move forward. The answer to their financial dilemma would be to apply for a lawsuit cash advance with an experienced lawsuit funding company.

If the case qualifies, if it stands a good chance of success, legal finance proceeds can be approved and forwarded within 24 to 48 hours. “Use it as you see fit; handle your necessary bills and expenses, then wait for a fair resolution in the case. If the insurance company comes makes an inadequate offer, and your attorney recommends rejection of that offer, listen to your attorney. Don’t accept the offer! Pre-settlement funding will help you get through the litigation. You may access this money at any time during the pending litigation,” Monroe said.

“If, by chance, the case does not win in court, a plaintiff who applies for and receives legal funding can keep the lawsuit cash advance proceeds. Yes, that’s right, they keep the legal funding with no further obligation to repay the company afterwards,” Monroe said.
