Lawsuit Alleges Negligence Caused Infant’s Brain Damage During Birth

September 3, 2019

Few things are more devastating than realizing that an incident during birth caused your child serious and permanent injury.

A woman has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a medical center and doctor over allegations of negligence.

The plaintiff was admitted to the medical facility for labor and delivery. She alleges that drugs were administered to induce labor, then subsequently increased when labor wasn’t progressing promptly. Although the baby was also being monitored, the lawsuit claims that he showed late decelerations that were not recognized by the defendants. As a result, the baby was born with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), a type of brain damage when the brain doesn’t get enough oxygen and blood. The child will suffer from life-long medical complications and disabilities, the suit states.

Cases like this are hard-fought; moving forward may be financially draining. Medical expenses, coupled with day-to-day bills associated with the case of the child, could leave this family financially devasted.

While litigation funding cannot solve physical and emotional issues, a lawsuit cash advance can substantially lessen the financial burdens.

Litigation funding is interim financial support to plaintiffs in a pending lawsuit. Funding is based solely on the strength of the case; if the case is reviewed and appears to be winnable, the application will likely be approved with funds available within 24 – 48 hours. No money is owed until the case successfully settles at which time repayment is made from the proceeds of the case. If the plaintiff loses the case, repayment is waived completely.

The application process is quick and easy by phone or online because credit-worthiness and job history are not factors in our funding decision.

If you have filed, or plan to file, a medical malpractice lawsuit and are represented by an attorney, you may be eligible for medical malpractice litigation funding. For a free, no-obligation consultation or funding analysis, contact Litigation Funding online or by phone.

August 15, 2019

A jury recently awarded a woman $2.3 million as compensation for injuries sustained from a three-vehicle auto accident.

The woman was waiting at a traffic light when the defendant, in this case, failed to stop and rear-ended another vehicle. That vehicle slammed into the woman’s car. As a result, she sustained a concussion and injuries to her neck, back, and shoulder. The woman was required to undergo multiple pain management procedures, as well as two neck surgeries and spinal infusion surgery.

Lawsuit Alleges Negligence In Deadly Crash Caused By Tractor-Trailer Driver

June 27, 2019

A Tennessee man has filed a $6 million lawsuit against a tractor-trailer company claiming general negligence.

On the morning of May 1, the plaintiff and his wife were approaching an intersection and the same time as the semi driver. The lawsuit alleges that the truck driver pulled into the intersection, blocking both lanes of the roadway, the shoulder, and half of the median, giving the couple no room or time to avoid a crash. The suit also alleges that the truck driver was traveling too fast when he attempted to make the turn. The female passenger died as a result of serious injuries sustained. The plaintiff suffered a broken hip, as well as multiple fractures to his right femur and ribs.

The lawsuit seeks damages for his injuries and the loss of his wife. The truck driver was cited on one count of failure to yield right of way resulting in death.

Often plaintiffs in situations like this are desperate for money to pay their bills and have little options available. Litigation funding is not only a viable option, but it is also risk-free.

Applying for this lawsuit cash advance is relatively easy, with funds available within 48 hours or less. All it takes is a phone call or the completion of a short form online. There are no credit checks, and a plaintiff doesn’t need to have a job; all he needs is to have pending litigation. If the case is lost, the cash advance does not need to be repaid. He would keep the money, free of charge.

If you are the plaintiff in a pending personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, you may wish to learn about litigation funding. Call Litigation Funding Corporation today to secure the outcome you deserve.

A Lawsuit Cash Advance Can Help Auto Accident Victims Fight For Justice

January 15, 2019

In 2016, a man was rear-ended by a teenage driver as he waited at a stoplight. As a result, this husband and father of three suffered serious back injuries and underwent spinal fusion surgery. Unfortunately, his injuries are permanent, requiring a lifetime of medical treatment. He is unable to return to work as a plumber or continue with the lifestyle he once knew.

The lawsuit alleged that the teen was distracted by her cell phone at the time of the crash. While the defense admitted fault, they disputed that the defendant was looking at her phone. The defense also argued that the plaintiff’s pain was from a pre-existing condition. However, after a three-day trial and two hours of deliberation, the jury awarded the plaintiff $2.2 million.

Although this case resulted in a successful settlement for the plaintiff, his attorney said that through it all the insurance company continued to deny, delay, and defend the claim.

This case is a perfect example where litigation funding would be beneficial.

Unlike insurance companies, Litigation Funding Corporation doesn’t penalize customers for using its services exactly the way it is intended. When corporate greed leads to lawsuit abuse; when innocent victims need to fight for their rights, we are there to help.

A lawsuit cash advance can “bridge” the gap between when an accident occurs and when the plaintiff receives a settlement. A quick call or one-page application is all it takes to get started. Once we receive an application, we will contact your attorney to obtain some additional information about your claim. Funding decisions are typically made within 24 – 48 hours.

Qualifying for litigation funding is based solely on the merits of the case. There are no credit checks, no out-of-pocket costs, no fees to apply, no employment requirements, and no-risk! You are only obligated to pay back the cash advance if, and when, the case is settled. If you should lose the case, you owe absolutely nothing!

If you have been injured in an auto accident and finding it impossible to pay the bills, give us a call or complete our online contact form. We may be the financial relief you need to receive the settlement you deserve. Our case evaluations are absolutely free!

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Targets Convenience Store In Drunk Driver Crash

November 8, 2018

With fatal auto accidents, lawsuits are often filed against a negligent driver, but in certain cases, local businesses can also be held liable. For example, a bar can be sued for a wrongful death caused by a drunk driver if there is evidence that the bar illegally served alcohol to the driver prior to the crash. This is called a dram shop claim.

The parents of two 16-year-old girls who were killed in a drunk driving crash have filed wrongful death lawsuits against the teen driver and the store clerk accused of selling him alcohol. The lawsuits allege that had the store clerk not sold alcohol to a minor, this senseless tragedy would have been avoided.

According to investigators, the 17-year-old driver bought four bottles of Mad-Dog 20/20 at a convenience store a few hours before the fatal crash. The clerk failed to check for valid identification before selling him the alcohol. After downing an entire bottle, the teen got behind the wheel. Unable to stay in a single lane, the driver went up on the median and crashed into a tree at high speed. Both passengers sustained fatal injuries.
The driver was charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter. The store clerk has been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for selling alcohol to a minor.

Finding the right attorney in cases like this is the first step in seeking justice. However, it is often a long fight as the defense will usually deny, delay, and defend the case for months, if not years. For plaintiffs who feel they cannot financially wait to seek justice, litigation funding can help. Not only can his legal financing help cover medical expenses, funeral, and burial expenses, or simply pay the monthly household bills but it can also give the plaintiff’s attorney much needed time to strengthen the case to obtain the compensation justly deserved.

Since lawsuit funding is based on the merit of the case, credit and employment are irrelevant. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments, and the cash advance is only repaid if, and when the case successfully settles. It is easy to apply for a lawsuit cash advance either online or by phone. If approved, funds can be available in as little as 24 hours.

If you have been in a drunk driving auto accident and experiencing financial hardship, don’t let the insurance company victimize you again by forcing you to accept a low offer. Call Litigation Funding Corporation to get the “staying power” advantage to pursue your lawsuit with confidence and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Texas Nursing Home Resident Allegedly Beaten by Nursing Assistant

October 31, 2018

The family of a nursing home resident planned to celebrate their father’s 84th birthday, but when they arrived at the facility they found him beaten and bruised. Although staff said the cause was an incident with the man’s roommate, police believe the resident may have been beaten by a nursing assistant.

According to an investigation earlier this year by Texas Health and Human Services, 12 violations were cited at the nursing home — seven were “life safety violations,” and five were health violations where inspectors stated, “the facility did not protect each resident from all abuse, physical punishment, and being separated from others.” Several violations have allegedly yet to be remedied. The facility was also cited because it “failed to have written rules against mistreating, neglecting, and abusing residents, and mishandling residents’ property.”

The family may wish to seek compensation for their father’s injuries by filing a personal injury lawsuit. However, they may find that they are unable to cope financially while waiting out the litigation process against high-powered defendants. In that case, litigation funding may be a good option.

Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance for life needs when plaintiffs may not be able to find money elsewhere, such as family or friends or a traditional bank loan. It can mean the difference between paying the rent or facing eviction. A lawsuit cash advance can also level the playing field until justice is served.

A seriously injured plaintiff who has hired an attorney, and has a strong case with merit is eligible for litigation funding. Applying for a cash advance against a future settlement is fast and easy. There is no cost to apply and no up-front or out-of-pocket expenses. Litigation Funding Corporation will work with your attorney to review your case and reach a funding decision in less than 48 hours.

Pre-settlement funding, or a lawsuit loan, is a non-recourse cash advance tied to the personal injury claim. Repayment is only due once the case successfully settles. The attorney handles the repayment through the case proceeds. If there is no recovery, repayment of the lawsuit loan is completely waived, making it a virtually risk-free cash advance for the plaintiff.

If you have a personal injury case and questions regarding pre-settlement funding, call Litigation Funding Corporation, toll-free at 1-866-548-3863.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Drug Manufacturer

September 28, 2018

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the makers of Prilosec, a proton pump inhibitor, in the death of a Texas man.

This case is one of 4,600 proton pump inhibitor lawsuits pending in the District of New Jersey alleging that the drug manufacturers concealed damaging side effects, including: end stage renal disease, acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease and acute interstitial nephritis.

According to the complaint, the man used Prilosec for 22 years, from 1994 to 2016. The suit alleges that the long-term use of the drug resulted in end stage renal disease and subsequent death. The wife of the deceased man is seeking damages for fraudulent concealment, breach of warranty, strict product liability, failure to warn, negligent misrepresentation, design defect, fraud and fraudulent misrepresentation, negligence and negligence per se, as well as loss of consortium and wrongful death.

The plaintiff claims that the drug companies knew that long-term use of proton pump inhibitors could harm the kidneys and that such harm would have been averted had the manufacturers warned physicians and patients of the risks. Long-term use of proton pump inhibitors has also been linked to an increased risk for heart attacks, low magnesium levels, B12 deficiency, bone fractures and dementia.

Litigation Funding Corporation understands that the litigation process from a defective drug lawsuit can take years to settle, as it is very difficult to compete with a major pharmaceutical company that has all the time and money to wait. Victims often face financial hardship, leaving them at risk for bankruptcy or foreclosure.

However, with pre-settlement lawsuit funding, plaintiffs do not have to suffer financially. Lawsuit funding gives plaintiffs instant access to cash with no risk. We offer an easy online application with approvals often made within 24 – 48 hours of receiving pertinent case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. There are no credit checks, employment verification, or upfront fees of any kind. Funded plaintiffs only repay the cash advance once the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, the repayment obligation is completely waived.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to a defective drug and have a pending lawsuit with attorney representation, you are pre-qualified for litigation funding or a “lawsuit loan.” Call Litigation Funding Corporation to learn more and see if a lawsuit loan is best for your case.

Healthcare Clinic Sued in Several Wrongful Death Lawsuits Over Use of GranuFlo

August 31, 2018

The families of three patients who died of heart attacks in 2013 after dialysis treatments at their health clinic were awarded $383.5 million.

According to the families’ attorneys, the patients were treated with GranuFlo, a drug known to cause a toxic pH balance. The lawsuit alleged fraud and negligence in ignoring significant blood changes when patients returned for dialysis treatments and that the company hid the harmful effects of an acid concentrate used in dialysis. GranuFlo was recalled in 2012 by the USFDA.

Litigation Funding Corporation knows that the process of arriving at a settlement or concluding a jury trial involving a defective drug or medical product lawsuit may take years to settle. Major drug companies are reluctant to offer adequate settlements, and they can afford to take their time with a lawsuit. In the meantime, victims, and their families, of medical malpractice or defective drug may face financial difficulties that could end in foreclosure or bankruptcy. Litigation Funding Corporation can provide a “lawsuit loan” or pre-settlement funding so victims can focus on recovery.

Pre-settlement funding allows plaintiffs instant access to cash with no risk. The online application process is easy and approvals are often made within 24 – 48 hours after Litigation Funding receives relevant case documentation from the plaintiff’s lawyer. There are no upfront fees, no credit checks and employment verification is not required. If the case does not win, repayment of the cash advance is totally forgiven.

Were you seriously injured and now facing a pending lawsuit? Do you feel that lawsuit funding could help you financially? Call Litigation Funding Corporation at 1-866-548-3863. We are ready to assist you with fast and hassle-free lawsuit funding.

Dockworker Dies After Mooring Line Snapped on Cargo Ship

August 17, 2018

A dockworker’s widow filed a wrongful death lawsuit when a mooring line snapped on a cargo ship, killing her husband.

The woman’s husband was killed June 28 when a thick nylon mooring line snapped and recoiled toward him in excess of 450 miles per hour, killing him instantly. A second man died later the same day. The $16 million lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Portland, Oregon names the owner of the vessel and the company that managed and operated the ship as defendants. It is alleged that the ship was repositioned without checking if the crew was in danger and that there were no safe lines provided to shift the ship.

A wrongful death suit can be filed when a loved one is killed due the negligence of another. If there is no life insurance or other funding sources readily available, plaintiffs could be eligible for pre-settlement funding or litigation financing.

The main objective for litigation financing is removing financial pressure to settle too fast and too soon, and to ensure victims of a tragedy receive fair and equitable compensation. Litigation Funding Corporation provides pre-settlement funding or a lawsuit loan based only on the merits of the case at hand.

The application process is simple and once an application has been approved, the pre-settlement funding can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Once a signed contract is received, funds can be sent either by check or wire. Plaintiffs can use the money immediately to pay medical bills, funeral expenses, and their usual monthly financial obligations. Should the case be lost, clients do not repay the cash advance.

Litigation funding is also available for many other types of lawsuits, such as product liability and auto accident cases. If you are in a pending personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit and need financial assistance, call 1-866-548-3863 to discuss your funding needs. We look forward to helping you obtain justice.

Widow Alleges Husband’s Death Due to Negligence

July 31, 2018

An Illinois widow is suing two machine-manufacturing companies for alleged liability and negligence in her husband’s death on a construction site.

According to the complaint filed, the plaintiff alleges her husband was thrown from a paver and crushed as it ran over him. The widow alleges that the defendants are responsible for failing to provide acceptable safeguards to prevent the death. She is seeking compensation for his wrongful death and the loss of companionship and services of a father and husband.

In filing this lawsuit, it is likely the family will face serious financial hardship due to the death of their primary breadwinner. In addition to bills and expenses resulting from the accident, they may be faced with mounting household expenses. To help them financially during the litigation process, the family could seek a lawsuit cash advance, known as pre-settlement litigation funding.

Pre-settlement funding, or a lawsuit loan, helps qualified plaintiffs deal with the cost of everyday necessities, such as transportation, rent, food, medical expenses, and funeral and burial costs. It is not like a traditional bank loan because a plaintiff’s personal credit has no bearing on funding approval; cases are funded solely on their strength. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments.

Litigation funding is non-recourse, meaning a plaintiff is only responsible for repaying the funding if, and when, they win the lawsuit. At that time, the funds come directly out of the proceeds of a case. Any obligation to repay the lawsuit loan is totally excused if the case fails. .

For further information or to see if your case qualifies for litigation funding, call Litigation Funding Corporation at 1-866-548-3863.
