Car vs. Motorcycle Crash Sends Man to Hospital with Serious Injuries

May 25, 2017

Recovering from an auto accident can take a toll on your emotional and physical well-being, not to mention the financial burden that comes with trying to cover the expenses associated with the crash. While an attorney can help obtain compensation for your loss, this can take more time than your finances can withstand. Once a lawsuit has been filed, if your financial situation is too much to bear, consider litigation funding.

A motorcyclist was sent to the hospital with serious injuries after a collision with a car in Rochester, New Hampshire. Police say the 76-year-old motorcycle driver was traveling south when he was struck by the driver of a 2004 Nissan Sentra, who was pulling out of a parking lot. The Nissan driver was not injured.

Both vehicles sustained heavy damage and had to be towed from the scene. The crash remains under investigation.
Although life is not easy after a serious auto accident, it is even harder to fight for a quick and fair settlement. Just because you are seriously injured due to the negligence of someone else, doesn’t mean the bills stop coming in. In fact, victims usually face a host of additional expenses – car repairs/replacement and medical expenses. If injuries leave the victim unable to work, the financial picture may be devastating.

Insurance companies who you thought would be “on your side” when tragedy strikes will usually deny, delay, and defend claims in their own best interest. Knowing a financial desperate plaintiff will strongly consider any settlement, the insurance company will seize the opportunity to offer much less than case value.

Don’t let the insurance company finagle their way out of a claim; never face the insurance company without an experienced auto accidents attorney who can help you fight for justice.

Once a lawsuit is filed, plaintiffs with limited income may want to consider auto accident litigation funding. Litigation funding is a financial lifeline to keep your case strong and your bills paid until a final settlement is reached. This type of cash advance is provided risk-free. There are no payments until the case settles, but if lost, repayment is completely waived. Additionally, there are no credit checks, employment verification or upfront fees; we fund strictly on case strength.

Once an application and case documentation is received, Litigation Funding Corporation can make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. To learn how litigation funding can help get you the emergency cash you need, call Litigation Funding Corporation or complete our online contact form.

High Bilirubin Levels Leading to Jaundice Leave Toddler’s Brain Damaged

May 17, 2017

Parents of a toddler, who sustained brain damage, received $46.5 million in a medical malpractice verdict.

When the baby was born in 2014, her blood tests indicated high bilirubin levels. There were no further tests done and the hospital did not administer phototherapy lights to treat the baby’s jaundice, the required steps for treatment. Jaundice is an indicator of high levels of bilirubin and if it is ignored it penetrates a newborn’s blood brain barrier, causing brain damage.

Due to the untreated jaundice, the baby suffered developmental delays and is unable to walk without help. The now two-year-old requires 24-hour care for the rest of her life. The parents filed a medical negligence lawsuit against the hospital and the physician in charge of the delivery, alleging they did not follow national patient safety guidelines relating to newborn jaundice.

According to expert witness testimony, the child’s bilirubin levels were examined when she was less than two hours old. However, the results were compared to what an acceptable level would be for a two-day-old child. The brain damage resulting from the untreated bilirubin levels is considered a mistake that was preventable, according to the National Quality Forum.

The jury found the doctor to be 85 percent liable for the damages and the hospital to be 15 percent liable.

Medical negligence lawsuits take many months and sometimes years to be resolved. In the meantime, families will often struggle to pay their monthly financial obligations, prior medical bills and ongoing medical expenses. By contacting an experienced medical malpractice attorney, families are able to seek lawsuit funding for financial assistance to allow them to wait for a settlement or court verdict for the full and fair value of the case.

Most plaintiffs find lawsuit funding, also referred to as pre-settlement funding, to be a lifeline while waiting for their lawsuit to be resolved. A “lawsuit loan” offers victims the strategic advantage of having cash-on-hand to wait for a reasonable offer.

An application for pre-settlement funding may be handled over the phone or online. It only takes five minutes to get that done and there are no credit checks, monthly payments or upfront fees. Lawsuit funding is a no-risk quick cash advance and can mean the difference between an equitable settlement and a low-ball mediocre one.

In a recent auto accident lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that in February 2016, he suffered bodily injury, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, incurred medical expenses and loss of earnings, as a result of driver negligence. He had underinsured motorist benefits on his insurance policy, but the insurance company failed to pay the claim. In order to seek justice, he hired an attorney and filed a lawsuit.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the driver, the owner of the vehicle, and his insurance company for an undisclosed amount in damages.

May 15, 2017

Trucking Company Named in Auto Accident Lawsuit

May 9, 2017

A personal injury is that life-changing moment when you are seriously injured as the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. The most obvious example of this is an automobile accident.

Waiting for a personal injury case to settle can be very difficult financially and mentally. Injuries may prevent the victim from earning a living and support a family. A financially desperate plaintiff is not in a favorable position regarding settlement negotiations; this person will often settle for too little, too soon.

Woman Sues Pharmacy after Receiving Incorrect Dosage of Prescription

April 25, 2017

As patients, we place a great deal of trust in our pharmacies to ensure that our prescriptions are filled correctly. We know the pharmacist or technician reads the doctor’s prescription, pulls the medication off the shelf, counts out the pills, puts them in a vial, and puts on a label with instructions. That all seems easy, but pharmacy errors occur far more often than one may think. When a medication error results in serious injury of death, the victim or a loved one can seek legal recourse for damages.

A Chicago woman filed a lawsuit two years after a pharmacy allegedly incorrectly filled her prescription and failed to check to make sure she was receiving the proper dosage of her medication.

The plaintiff claims that in April 2015, a local pharmacy filled her prescription with a 100 mg dosage instead of the 10 mg that she was prescribed by her doctor. As a result, the woman said she sustained severe and permanent injury, resulting in substantial medical care.

The plaintiff seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

Oftentimes, there is a significant gap between the filing a lawsuit and its resolution or trial. In the meantime, the plaintiff still needs to pay the bills. When faced with a mountain of medical expenses and/or the inability to return to work, a plaintiff may seek litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a cash advance to help with various expenses, whether those directly the result of the injury or daily living expenses. The money is not provided against an asset; rather, it is given against the potential settlement of the case. This means that funding decisions are made without the need for a credit check or employment verification. At Litigation Funding Corporation, we only care about the strength of the case.

If you believe you have been the victim of a prescription error, you should contact a personal injury attorney who can fully investigate your claim and determine your legal rights. Once the case is filed, contact Litigation Funding Corporation to determine if we can assist with your financial burdens while your lawyer seeks appropriate justice.
