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. Contact the experienced and professional staff at Litigation Funding Corporation. We would be happy to answer all your questions and help you understand the lawsuit finance process.

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.

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.

First Female Dealer Appointed By General Motors Dies in Auto Accident

February 15, 2017

An Iowa woman died from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash last week. Her love of the auto business led her to open her own dealership. She was the first female dealer appointed by General Motors.
According to Davenport police, the driver of a Dodge truck crossed the center line, striking the woman’s car as she headed in the opposite direction. Both drivers were taken to an area hospital for serious injuries, where the woman later died. The truck driver was cited for driving left of the center, control of vehicle, driving under suspension, and no insurance. An investigation is ongoing.

Losing a loved one unexpectedly can be extremely difficult and painful. Resolving a claim can be exhausting; reaching a settlement is only half the battle, especially if the negligent driver had no insurance. The family may need to make a claim against the woman’s own insurance company if she had uninsured motorist coverage.
If a lawsuit is filed and the family is facing a significant financial burden due to funeral and burial expenses as well as other expenses as a result of the accident, they may be able to seek monetary support through a lawsuit cash advance, known as litigation funding.

While we can’t bring back a loved one, Litigation Funding Corporation is often able to help plaintiffs avoid financial difficulties until their case settles and compensation received.

Litigation funding is a cash advance to help take care of life’s necessities (mortgage, rent, food, utilities, gas, car payments, medical expenses, transportation, etc.) during a long, and sometimes, bumpy road to resolution. Unlike a traditional bank loan, personal credit has no bearing on the funding decision, and the applicant does not need to be employed. We fund strictly on case strength and require no monthly payments. Litigation funding is non-recourse. This means that you will only be responsible for paying back the advance if you win your case. Any obligation to repay the cash advance will be completely excused if the case fails.

Applying for a lawsuit cash advance begins after you have hired an attorney on a contingency bases. Once we received an application, we will begin the review process by obtaining case documentation from your attorney. If your application is approved, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours by wire transfer or overnight mail. Remember, repayment is not made until the case settles, at which time it comes directly out of the proceeds of your case.

If you need further information or want to see if your case qualifies litigation funding, call Litigation Funding Corporation at 1-866-548-3863.

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 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.

$3.9M Lawsuit Filed Against Bar and Driver for Bizarre Hit-and-Run Death of Pedestrian

January 5, 2017

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a drunk driving auto accident, are represented by an attorney, and experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for litigation funding. If you qualify, Litigation Funding Corporation, a leader in the legal funding industry, may be able to provide a lawsuit cash advance within in 24 – 48 hours.

A wrongful death lawsuit was recently filed against a drunk driver, as well as the bar that served her that night she hit two pedestrians, killing one.

The plaintiff said he and his father were crossing the street on foot when they were struck by the driver of a Honda Civic. The impact of the crash knocked the older pedestrian into the windshield, then onto the luggage rack on the car’s roof. The driver did not stop; she drove 11 blocks before the man fell off. He died along the side of the road as the woman left the scene. The younger pedestrian (also the plaintiff) required surgery for injuries he sustained.

While the crash was initially hit-and-run, police were able to track down the driver, who later pled guilty and sentence to eight years.

The lawsuit alleges driver negligence for driving while intoxicated and failing to control her vehicle. The complaint contends the bar was negligent in serving her alcohol while she was visibly intoxicated.

A bar can be held accountable 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, and it is meant to hold bar owners accountable when their illegal behavior causes severe injury and death. Dram shop liability laws vary widely by state so it is important to consult a personal injury attorney versed in this area of the law to determine if you have a valid case.

These types of lawsuits will take a long time to sort out; the bar will likely mount a vigorous defense and a settlement or trial could be months, if not years, away. By the time the plaintiff is able to see a settlement, he may have medical bills, funeral expenses, and other bills piled up. If he needs financial assistance during the litigation process, Litigation Funding Corporation is here to help.

Litigation Funding Corporation is a reputable legal finance company helping victims regain control of their lives and their finances while their attorney focuses on strengthening their case to obtain the compensation justly deserved. Litigation funding is based on the strength of the case; credit and employment are irrelevant.

It is easy to apply for litigation funding either online or by phone. If approved, the cash advance can be available in as little as 24 hours. Litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if you lose, repayment is excused.

If you have been in a drunk driving auto accident and experiencing financial hardship, contact Litigation Funding Corporation for a “staying power” advantage, so you can fight for justice and the compensation you deserve.
