Brakeman Accuses Transportation Company of Negligence

March 16, 2017

In a split second, your life can be changed forever by the carelessness or negligence of someone else. Personal injury victims often experience severe injuries and disabilities, leading to steep medical bills, an inability to work, difficulty paying for basic living expenses, and financial and emotional stress. Meanwhile, the litigation process can take years, time most plaintiffs don’t have. Litigation Funding Corporation can help by providing a non-recourse cash advance.

A Texas man has filed a lawsuit against a transportation company alleging failure to provide employees with a reasonably safe working environment.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that while employed as a brakeman on a switching crew, he was run over by three locomotives that were hooked together as he was crossing the main lead. As a result, his legs were amputated below his knees.

The suit states that the defendant failed to issue audible warning from the locomotive, failed to properly train employees, failed to properly supervise its agents, and allowed unsafe work practices to become the standard. The plaintiff seeks a trial by jury and undisclosed compensation for physical injuries, emotional pain, loss of earnings and medical expenses.

Despite the fact that our legal system can help plaintiffs receive the compensation deserved, it is usually not a quick and easy process. Insurance companies will regularly put up a fight when it comes to paying people what they should. They will usually do this by stalling the case hoping the plaintiff will run out of money and agree to a less than favorable settlement. The emotional, mental and physical stress is enough to deal with; the last thing this man needs to worry about is how to keep up with his financial obligations until a fair settlement is reached. In cases such as this one, victims may be eligible for litigation funding.

When justice is slow in coming, a lawsuit cash advance can be the means to stay financially afloat. All that a plaintiff needs is an experienced personal injury lawsuit and a strong case with a high probability of success. Applying for litigation funding can be done online or with a quick phone call.

Once we receive an application and case documentation, the review and decision process is typically handled within one day, and funds can be available for use within 24 – 48 hours of approval. Repayment is only made after the case settles; if the case is lost, repayment of the lawsuit cash advance is excused.

If you are in a pending personal injury claim and need financial assistance, call Litigation Funding Corporation. We may have the mechanism you need to pay your bills, keep your credit standing, and fight for your rights.

Lawsuit Filed Over Trash Truck Explosion that Severely Burns Worker

March 2, 2017

A man who suffered third-degree burns from a trash truck’s natural gas system has filed a personal injury lawsuit.

According to the claim, the plaintiff was at work, preparing to wash a trash truck, when there was a violent explosion. As a result, the man suffered third-degree burns to his face, arms, and lower extremities. The lawsuit alleges that the explosion was caused by a failure of a component part of the compressed natural gas system attached to the truck. The complaint contends that the defendants were fully aware of the deficiency in the product prior to the explosion, yet failed to properly design, manufacture, maintain, inspect, or replace the hose that permitted the fugitive gas to escape. Defendants also failed to warn those using the product of the danger posed, according to the lawsuit. The plaintiff seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

The plaintiff’s severe injuries are likely to have a substantial impact on his financial situation. His ability to earn a living has, likely, been substantially impaired. The lawsuit will most likely take months, possibly years, to resolve.

Litigation funding enables plaintiffs to handle all medical bills, therapy costs, medications and even required surgery, as well as their usual monthly expenses, like the mortgage/rent, tuition, car payments, and other immediate expenses.

All we need is a funding application and pertinent case documentation to determine make a funding decision. If a lawsuit cash advance is approved, a contract is signed defining the terms of the agreement including repayment from the proceeds of the settlement.

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.
