Nebraska Man Charged with Manslaughter Following Fatal Drunk Driving Crash

March 3, 2017

A single-vehicle crash in central Nebraska claimed the life of two young men, after a heavy-duty pick-up truck left the roadway, ran into a ditch, and rolled at least one full rotation before coming to a rest. Two passengers were ejected; they were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and three other passengers were taken treated for injuries at a nearby hospital. Multiple beer cans allegedly were recovered from the accident scene.

Police reports state the driver had a blood alcohol level of .09; the legal limit to drive in Nebraska is .08. He was charged with two counts of felony manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol. He could face up to 40 years in prison. He could also face wrongful death lawsuits.

An experienced auto accident attorney can help protect the rights of the victims and help them receive compensation for their loss. Even with the help of an experienced attorney, a lawsuit can drag on as the insurance company for the negligent driver will most likely deny fault and delay the litigation process. For the victim’s family, life won’t wait for a lawsuit to settle nor should they be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar because of pressing financial needs. When finances are an issue, litigation funding can be a solution.

Litigation funding is a cash advance of an expected settlement. Its main purpose is to assist plaintiffs with the likely loss of wages, mounting medical bills, funeral expenses, daily household bills, and other out-of-pocket expenses until a settlement is reached. Unlike a traditional bank loan; funding can be obtained without the need for a credit check or employment verification; the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. Funding is based strictly on case strength.

Request for funding applications can be made over the phone or online, with approvals as quickly as 24 hours. Once a contract is signed, the money is sent via overnight mail or direct deposit. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis. When the case settles, the cash advance is repaid from the case proceeds. If the plaintiff fails in achieving a settlement, repayment is completely waived.

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to a drunk driver and need financial assistance, consider litigation funding to help wage your legal battle for the best possible settlement.

Fatal Crash on Private Property Appears to be Alcohol Related

February 22, 2017

A North Carolina woman was killed after the SUV she was riding in crashed on private property, according to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol. She was partially ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. The driver suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries. Neither the driver nor passenger were wearing a seat belt.

Drunk driving accidents occur far too often in the United States. According to the CDC, 28 people die in alcohol-related crashes every day. That equates to one death every 53 minutes. Every two minutes, a person is injured by a drunk driver.

Victims and their families have a right to receive compensation for injuries and deaths caused by a drunk driver. In many cases, the litigation process can take months, if not years, to conclude and a settlement to be paid. During this time, the issue of being able to pay the bills may become an issue, one that could drastically affect how a case progresses. Plaintiffs in these situations may be eligible for a litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance that eases the pressure to settle early and inexpensively. It also gives the plaintiff’s attorney the precious time needed to obtain the fairest possible result. The non-recourse cash advance can be used to pay medical expenses, funeral expenses, mortgage payments, tuition, car payments, grocery bills or ongoing daily living expenses. There are no restrictions on using the cash advance.

When a plaintiff applies for funding, the legal finance company will review pertinent documentation to determine the merits of the case. Once approved and a contract signed, funds can be available to the plaintiff within 24-48 hours. There is no credit check, no employment verification and no payments until the case settles. If the case is lost, there is no repayment obligation.

If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident and the bills won’t stop piling up, consider litigation funding. As in any industry, all legal finance companies are not equal. It is important to do some research and ask questions to determine if litigation funding would be beneficial to you and your case.

February 21, 2017

A 29-year-old woman and her four children were killed in a head-on crash after a tractor trailer crossed into the oncoming lane to pass another truck, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. The children ranged in age from 21 months to 12 years of age.

As part of the investigation, police will be looking into the truckers driving long, how many hours he had been on the job, and if he was distracted in any way. Officials say that particular stretch of highway has a high volume of traffic and is known for crashes.

Even before the details are sorted out, the family of the victims should consult an experienced auto accident attorney to understand their rights to recover compensation for the loss of their loved ones.

Once the litigation process begins, the road to justice can drag on for years. In the meantime, the family may be left in a bind financially due to additional expenses incurred such as medical bills and funeral expenses. Litigation funding provides quick and easy financial relief.

Litigation funding is a cash advance to help plaintiffs who would be between a rock and a hard place without financial assistance until a settlement is reached or a verdict handed down by the courts. To qualify, a plaintiff needs attorney representation and a case with merit; that’s all – no application fees, credit checks, employment verification or collateral is necessary. Once an application is approved, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. No payments are made until the case settles. If, for some reason the plaintiff does not successfully settle, the repayment is completely waived.

It is no longer necessary to allow corporate defense attorneys to force you to settle prematurely for a fraction of case value when a lawsuit cash advance may be able to help you get a higher settlement.

Two Teens Dead and Expectant Mother in Critical Condition Following Head-On Crash

February 20, 2017

Two high school seniors are dead and two other individuals are in serious condition after a head-on collision.
According to reports, the teen driver of a Chevy Impala was speeding, crossed the center line, and struck a Honda Pilot head-on. Police estimate the Impala was traveling at 70 mph at the time of the crash.

The driver of the Honda was 34-weeks pregnant. When she gave birth at the hospital via emergency C-section, the baby girl did not have a heartbeat. The infant was revived after 11 minutes of CPR; she is doing fine. The woman lost a spleen and kidney and has a critical brain injury, according to a family member. Two teen passengers in the sedan were killed; the driver is in serious, non-life threatening condition.

After help from witnesses that a third vehicle was involved, and may have been racing with the Impala, police located that vehicle. Whether the car was racing the Chevy, however, is unknown at this time.

While the crash remains under investigation, the victims may wish to consult an auto accident attorney to understand their rights under a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Recoverable compensation may include medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages, other expenses related to the damages, as well as pain and suffering.

If the woman or the families of the deceased teens file a lawsuit, and need financial support until a settlement is reached, they may want to consider a lawsuit cash advance, known as auto accident litigation funding.

A lawsuit cash advance is based on the merits of the case and the time it will take to achieve an outcome. Funding can often be available in less than 48 hours after receipt of a completed application and case documentation. There are no monthly fees, no credit checks, and no employment verification. Repayment is not required until the case concludes successfully; if the plaintiff loses, the repayment is waived in its entirety.

Bridge the Gap While You Await Settlement

February 8, 2017

Waiting for your personal injury case to settle can be very difficult financially and mentally. Injuries may prevent you from earning a living to support your families. Without sufficient savings, you will most likely have a hard time paying medical expenses, the mortgage/rent, or even put food on the table. When family and friends cannot help, Litigation Funding Corporation can.

A man sustained serious injuries when his vehicle was rear-ended and pushed into oncoming traffic, where he was hit head-on by another vehicle. He was taken to the hospital with a concussion and a knee injury; he underwent several months of physical therapy, leaving him unable to work. The police report indicated that the driver that rear-ended him was negligent of driver distraction and speeding, but that did not prevent the insurance company from denying, delaying, and defending the claim.

Often times it takes months, even years for an auto accident lawsuit to reach a conclusion. For someone with pressing financial needs, waiting is not an option. As long as the case is strong and the plaintiff has attorney representation, litigation funding is usually an option.

Litigation funding, a cash advance, not a loan, is provided on a non-recourse basis. This means that repayment would be made once the case settles but if the case is lost, the plaintiff would be under no obligation to repay the cash advance.

Our goal is to make sure that plaintiffs are able to support themselves until their case reaches a settlement. This means funding decisions have nothing to do with one’s credit history or employment status, and there are no out-of-pocket fees. Once we receive a lawsuit cash advance request, we will work with the plaintiff’s attorney to review case documents and determine the amount we can advance. This typically takes place in less than 48 hours.

If you were involved in an auto accident, suffered injuries and can’t borrow money from a bank, friend, or family, you may benefit from a non-recourse lawsuit cash advance. Contact Litigation Funding Corporation. Our experienced staff can answer your questions and help you with your cash needs.

Litigation Funding is an Option for Plaintiffs with Mounting Debt during a Pending Lawsuit

February 3, 2017

If a truck accident has been caused by the failure of the truck or its parts, components or systems, the carrier, distributor or manufacturer may be liable for accident victims’ injuries and other losses. The failure of a truck’s parts, systems, etc., could be a maintenance issue, which would likely make the carrier responsible. But if the failure was caused by a defect that was there from the start, a product liability claim may seek to hold the manufacturer and distributor accountable.

The legal process can be complicated when pursuing the recovery of monetary compensation in a product liability case. That is why it is critical to have an experienced trucking accident attorney on your side who can uncover the facts and achieve the maximum damages award. But, tracking down the source of a defective part or component can be a time-consuming process in itself. When time is not on your side financially, litigation funding can be a lifesaver.

An Alabama family has received $16.8 million after a family member was killed in October 2013 after he lost control of the log truck he was driving overturned.

Cab guards are meant to prevent shifting cargo from contacting the cab of heavy trucks. According to the lawsuit, the cab guard failed. When the load of logs on the truck shifted in the crash, they breached the truck’s cab and struck the driver, killing him instantly. Additionally, the trailer support beams failed to contain the truck’s load in place, allowing it to shift forward, and the trailer had no cab guard attached to it.

According to the court order, the jury found in favor of the plaintiff, noting that the cab guard on the truck was defective in design, manufacture, and warnings.

Wrongful death accidents such as this one often cause immediate and long-term financial problems for family members of the deceased. When that happens, legal finance services can provide both immediate and long-term financial assistance. This service, known as litigation funding, helps plaintiffs pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and ongoing monthly bills during the litigation process. It is easy to apply for a lawsuit cash advance online or by phone and there are no costs or fees associated with the application. There are also no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. Repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case; if the plaintiff loses their case, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety. That is correct; the plaintiff would owe nothing. Where else can you obtain a “risk-free lawsuit loan”? If approved, the lawsuit cash advance would arrive within 24-48 hours by check or by wire.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to a product defect or corporate negligence, consult an attorney immediately to help you file your claim. Once you are in a pending lawsuit, if you need financial assistance, consider litigation funding. It may be the difference between settling for less too early and waiting for a fair judgment later.

Litigation Funding Provides Plaintiffs Financial Support to see Their Case to Completion

January 27, 2017

After an auto accident, injured victims have a lot to worry about — physical injuries, medical bills, and unpaid time off from work. Working with the insurance company will mostly likely be difficult and time-consuming task. They know you’re in a vulnerable position, and usually will take advantage of that fact. A common strategy for insurance companies is to make a “low ball” offer; you should only settle for what you deserve.

An auto accident attorney helps victims navigate through the process so that just compensation is reached. However, a long and complicated legal process often causes financial hardship. Securing pre-settlement litigation funding can help with expenses so plaintiffs don’t have to suffer financially while a case is litigated.

Litigation funding provides plaintiffs in civil suits with a cash advance to help them weather financial hardships during a pending claim. It has several benefits over a traditional bank loan. Where a traditional loan implies monthly payments, litigation funding requires no payments to be made until a settlement is reached. If a plaintiff fails to recover damages, the “lawsuit loan” does not need to be repaid. Additionally, it is not necessary to be employed or have good credit to obtain litigation funding. The strength of the case and the likelihood of its success is our only concern when making a funding decision.

If you are a plaintiff in a pending lawsuit, don’t let financial distress force you to settle for less than you deserve. After applying for litigation funding, Litigation Funding Corporation will usually be able to provide a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours.

Litigation Funding Helps Plaintiffs Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable for Their Actions?

January 24, 2017

You were seriously injured in an auto accident due to a distracted driver. The medical bills are piling up, you need to replace your damage car, you are unable to return to work, and your credit cards have reached their limit. Your attorney said your case won’t settle for at least six months so you asked the bank for a loan; they turned you down. Now what?

You are faced with two options – settle with the insurance company, knowing their offer is much lower than what you deserve and your attorney says he can obtain if you just wait, or apply for litigation funding.

All too often, plaintiffs who are injured settle for far less than they deserve from those who were distracted because they need the money immediately. Litigation funding is a way to cope in terms of paying the bills so your case can proceed to justice you get the full damages you deserve and the responsible person is held accountable.

Litigation funding is a cash advance against your anticipated settlement. There are no upfront costs or fees, no credit check, no employment verification, etc. Whether you are approved is based solely on the strength of your case, and how likely it is you will win. If approved, the money can be used however you wish, although we recommend that it be used for “emergency” needs, such as medical expenses, mortgage, car payments, etc. As a non-recourse type of funding, repayment of the cash advance is made from the case proceeds. We will never require repayment should you lose the case.

Don’t wait another day for the financial relief you need. Litigation Funding Corporation has streamlined the application process; it is quick, easy, and hassle-free with our online application. If approved, funds can be available in as little as 24 hours.

Litigation Funding Helps Plaintiffs Negotiate From A Position Of Strength

January 12, 2017

Whether an auto accident was due to driver negligence or poor road conditions, innocent victims may be able to recover compensation for damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Litigation funding can be a financial lifesaver if you need help paying your bills while your case is pending.

A personal injury lawsuit can take a long time winding through the courts, time many plaintiffs might not be able to afford. Injuries can result in time out of work and medical bills can put an extra strain on already reduced finances. Insurance companies know this and will present a lowball offer. Although it may be a long road to achieving a fair settlement, it doesn’t have to be a financially bumpy one. With litigation funding, there is no reason to settle for less than full case value.

While many refer to litigation funding as a “lawsuit loan”, it really isn’t a loan in the customary sense. It is a cash advance against the proceeds you expect to receive when your case settles. The money can be used to pay medical bills, day-to-day living expenses, or any other financial obligations. Unlike a bank loan, there is no employment or income verification and credit score doesn’t matter; funding is based solely on the strength of the case. Additionally, there are no upfront fees or monthly payments, and no out of pockets expense. Repayment only occurs once the case successfully settles; if lost, the repayment is completely waived.

At Litigation Funding Corporation, we have streamlined the application process; it takes less than 5 minutes online or over the phone. Next, we will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation to determine eligibility for funding. If approved, cash can be available in as little as 24 hours, via direct deposit or overnight mail. If you are in need of short-term cash during your pending claim, contact Litigation Funding. We provide a free, no-obligation consultation and our professional staff will guide you ever step of the way to ensure the litigation funding process is not only timely, but hassle-free.

Man Charged With Felony DUI After Deadly Crash

January 10, 2017

One of the most negligent acts by a driver is getting behind the wheel while under the influence.
A single vehicle crash in Charleston, S.C. left one man dead and another arrested on a felony DUI charge.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, a white Buick Park Avenue was speeding when the vehicle slid across oncoming lanes and struck a tree stump. The driver and a passenger were transported to the hospital with serious injuries; the passenger later died from blunt force injuries.

Officers found a beer can on the driver’s side floor board and an empty case of beer in the vehicle; they said the driver smelled of alcohol. He has been charged with felony DUI resulting in death. The crash is still under investigation.

While it is the role of the criminal courts to punish the negligent driver by revoking his license, issuing fines, and/or sentencing him to jail time, the ruling will not compensate the victim’s family for his death.
With the help of an experienced auto accident attorney the family can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation can cover medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.

Justice usually takes time, often years. The loss of a family member will often lead to financial problems until a settlement is reached. For financial assistance during this time, many plaintiffs will turn to litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a non-recourse cash to pay funeral expenses, medical expenses, regular monthly bills and other necessary expenses. It also helps to prevent damage to a plaintiff’s credit score. When a plaintiff is financially stable, his/her attorney has time to fight for fair compensation rather than settling the case prematurely.

Applying for funding is easy online or over the phone. Funding decisions are based on the strength of the case; there is no need for a credit check, employment verification, monthly payments, or upfront fees. Once approved, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, litigation funding is repaid only upon a successful settlement. If the plaintiff does not receive a favorable cash settlement, he/she is under no obligation to pay back the cash advanced.

If you believe litigation funding could help you survive during the pursuit of your personal injury or wrongful death claim, you owe it to yourself to contact Litigation Funding Corporation, a direct lender for litigation funding. We can provide a free, no-obligation case evaluation.
