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.

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.

Litigation Funding Helps Bridge the Financial Gap Between Filing Suit and Settlement

April 13, 2017

Have you or a loved one been seriously injured in auto accident due to no fault of your own? Are you suing for damages and have attorney representation? If so, auto accident lawsuit funding may be able to help with your finances while your case is pending.

Here is a case example:
A couple was injured in an auto accident in 2014 when a distracted driver rear-ended their vehicle while they were waiting at a traffic light. Due to injuries sustained, the man was unable to return to work for nearly two years. His wife was a stay-at-home mom who was forced to take a part-time job to help pay the bills, but that was still not enough. Three years after the crash, the couple was able to realize a fair settlement, but not before their savings were depleted. In another month, they would have lost their home.

Careless or reckless drivers cause accidents every day, often due to a distracted driver. In a case like this, securing litigation funding could help a plaintiff alleviate some of the financial strain.

Lawsuit funding differs from traditional loans in that there are no payments made until a judgment is rendered or settlement reached. If the plaintiff fails to recover damages, the lawsuit cash advance is not repaid. Additionally, lawsuit funding is structured in such a way that factors such as employment history and credit standing don’t matter. Our only concern is the validity of claim and the likelihood of its success.

The application process takes less than five minutes; we do the rest. After obtaining case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney, if the case is approved for funding we will direct deposit or wire-transfer the funds within 24 – 48 hours. It is really that simple!

If you are involved in an auto accident lawsuit and need financial ammunition to fight for your rights, consider acquiring lawsuit funding. For more information, call Litigation Funding Corporation today!
