Live Comfortably Until a Settlement is Reached with Pre-Settlement Funding

February 24, 2014

Those who need emergency cash for their auto accident case may want to contact a legal funding company to apply for a lawsuit cash advance.

An Ohio man filed an auto accident lawsuit against a driver he claimed was responsible for a multi-vehicle accident that allegedly left his wife, a passenger in his vehicle, permanently impaired. According to the lawsuit, “As the man entered the intersection, the defendant ran a red light, lost control, and struck the plaintiffs vehicle on the passenger side.” An investigation determined that the defendant was not only speeding, but talking on his cell phone at the time of the accident.

The plaintiff claimed that because of the accident his wife is physically impaired, experiences ongoing physical pain and mental anguish, and the couple has incurred exorbitant medical costs. Due to her injuries, he has lost a significant amount of work to care for her. The insurance company made a settlement offer, but the plaintiff’s attorney said it was significantly less than what the couple deserved. He believed if they waited, the case would settle within 8 – 10 months for a much higher settlement. Unfortunately, the medical bills alone were a struggle for this couple. Pre-settlement lawsuit funding was just what they needed.

Rather than letting the bills pile and risking bad credit or home foreclosure, pre-settlement funding can work as a cash advance that does not have to be repaid until the case settles. Applying for funding requires a simple online application. Approval is based solely on the strength of the case. If approved, the client and his attorney will sign a contract detailing the funding agreement. There is no need to worry about confusing text; the terms and conditions are clearly defined, but Litigation Funding Corp. will go over everything first. We also advise our clients to only take a cash advance for the amount absolutely necessary; a request for additional funding can be made later, if needed. The best part of pre-settlement funding is that if you lose your case, the repayment is waived.

From mortgage and auto payments to utility bills and daily living expenses, pre-settlement funding will allow you to live comfortably until the settlement check arrives in the mail. Call us for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Consider Litigation Funding Before Risking Your Credit

December 23, 2013

Tammy, a mother of three young children, can still recall the horrifying day when the phone rang while she was cooking dinner. When Tammy answered the phone, she knew instantly that something was wrong. Tammy’s husband, John, was killed in an auto accident on his way home from work.

As a stay at home mom, Tammy was quickly overwhelmed. With a budget already stretched, Tammy found herself with little savings and a lot of bills. The negligent driver’s insurance company continued to deny, delay, and defend the claim. Although Tammy consulted an auto accident attorney and filed a lawsuit, it did not speed up her case. Months were passing and a settlement was not in sight. The stress was taking a toll; she need cash fast.

As Tammy was cleaning up after the kids, she heard a commercial on the TV in the other room – “Do you need cash to pay your bills before your lawsuit settles?” Curious that help may be available to her, Tammy called her attorney to see if he was familiar with such a service. Tammy’s attorney told her that such financial help is provided by litigation funding companies and he immediately suggested Litigation Funding Corp. as the expert in the industry. After Colleen thoroughly explained how the funding works, Tammy applied for a $3,500 cash advance. She was approved the next day and her bills were paid in full.

Speeding Results in Intersection Fatality

February 16, 2012

A 68-year-old man was killed in an auto accident when the driver of a Toyota Scion ran a red light and hit the man’s Chevrolet Cavalier broadside. Witnesses said the driver of the Scion was speeding, swerved around a vehicle in front of him that had stopped at the light and hit the Cavalier in the intersection. The two vehicles then skidded into a guardrail. The impact caused life-threatening injuries to the Toyota driver; the driver of the Cavalier died at the scene. The accident is still under investigation.

During the continued investigation, the family of the deceased driver may choose to talk to an experienced attorney about their rights to compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one.

Auto Accident on Icy Highway Claims Three Lives

November 15, 2011

A fatal auto accident in Washington is a sad reminder of how dangerous icy highways can be this winter. Police said that at approximately 6:30 on Saturday morning, the driver of a Toyota pick-up truck lost control on an icy stretch of the highway, spun sideways, crossed the center line, and was hit broadside by a tractor trailer. The driver of the pick-up, his passenger, and a passenger in the tractor trailer were killed upon impact. The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.

It is easy to forget about wintry driving conditions especially early in the season, but drivers need to be ready. Whether it’s a dusting of snow or a patch if ice, winter roads can be very dangerous. Icy conditions usually require us to drive at less than posted speeds. Slow down and give yourself time to stop. This is also a good time to remind drivers to check the condition of all tires, antifreeze levels, and put a survival kit in all vehicles in case of an emergency.

The families of the victims may seek legal counsel to learn their rights in the wrongful death of a loved one. After retaining an attorney and pursuing a lawsuit, they may want to ask questions about the possibility of accessing lawsuit funding. A “litigation loan” could be a smart move for a family wondering how they will make ends meet financially without a breadwinner or to simply pay additional expenses associated with the accident. Pre-settlement funding helps victims deal with unexpected bills and then take care of other pressing financial business, like the mortgage and car payments.

A lawsuit cash advance can help them wait for a just and equitable settlement. If approved for a lawsuit cash advance, approval can be provided within 24-48 hours, and a check wired to your account. It is free to apply and funds are only required to be repaid if the case is settled or won. If you lose the case, the money is yours to keep, free of charge.

TRAX Train Crash Kills Two; Severely Injures Two More

July 14, 2010

No one will really know why a young man decided to try to cross railway tracks while the crossing arm was coming down and signaling an oncoming train. The man was trying to maneuver around the barrier when the car he was driving, which belonged to his father, was hit by a TRAX train. The impact of this auto-train collision killed the young driver and a passenger; two other passengers were critically injured.

The family of one of the injured passengers has filed a personal injury lawsuit naming the driver, his father and his father’s employer (I presume the vehicle was owned by the company for the father’s use). The suit alleges the father let his son drive despite his bad driving record and habit of not paying attention to traffic rules. The young plaintiff was permanently injured in the auto-train collision.

It is likely that the other families of the other victims will consider pursuing lawsuits, as well. This was a horrific crash and they are entitled to seek compensation for their losses.

After all victims retain counsel and pursue lawsuits, they and their families may want to ask questions about the possibility of accessing lawsuit funding. A “litigation loan” could be a smart move for a family wondering how they were going to pay for the care of their injured child for the rest of their lives.

Pre-settlement funding is something that lets the victims deal with their medical expenses, therapy, etc., right away and then take care of other pressing financial business, like the mortgage and car payments.

A lawsuit cash advance will help them wait for a just and equitable verdict in their favor; it they are approved, funding can be completed within 24-48 hours, by check or wire. It is free to apply and funds are only required to be repaid if the case is settled or won. If you lose the case, the money is yours to keep, free of charge.

Severe Spinal Cord Injury: Experienced Attorney and Lawsuit Funding Are a Powerful Combination

May 20, 2010

If you have suffered a severe spinal cord injury as the result of a car accident, motorcycle accident or even a fall that was the result of negligence on someone else’s part, then you may want to talk to a personal injury lawyer about filing a lawsuit. You’ll need to recover compensation for your personal injury damages, particularly the physical wounds, as you will need care for the rest of your life. There are some instances where a person does have an inherited condition, but in this post we are just focusing on paraplegia that was the result of an injured acquired in an accident.

What happens with paraplegia is that the channels through which your body sends signals to other body parts get disrupted. This interference in the signals being sent and received will cause not only a loss of sensation in the lower extremities, but sensory damage in the brain itself. When the brain is injured as well, it loses control over other neurological functions.

Contrary to popular myth, the spinal cord does not need to be severed to lose function and feeling. Generally speaking, the higher up the spinal cord the damage occurs, the more paralysis is involved; the result may be either paraplegia or quadriplegia.

While there is no cure for paraplegia, at least not yet, there are various therapies that make an enormous difference to the sufferer. Those therapies are both medical and psychological; some victims may regain minor functioning in their lower limbs if the swelling in their spinal cord goes down over time. Unfortunately, many paraplegics do not recover complete body functions.

The most dangerous complication of paraplegia is respiratory system damage; thus, most often, pneumonia is the leading cause of death for those with paraplegia. Further, loss of feeling can lead to serious injury to the paralyzed body part.

As you can see, there are many things that someone who has been diagnosed with paraplegia will face for the rest of their lives. This is why they need to speak to a competent personal injury lawyer, in order to get compensation that will cover their care.

The paraplegic who was injured in an accident caused by someone’s negligence may also want to check out the possibility of getting a lawsuit cash advance. This is a legal finance service that will provide funding to pay important bills and expenses as well as medical, home health care and physical therapy while waiting the case to be resolved. Lawsuit funding is based on the potential of your case. After your application and the receipt of information from your attorney, if approved, you will receive funding in as little as 24 hours. It might be the answer to your financial distress while you wait for your lawyer and the legal system to provide justice.

Cop Hits Biker; Biker Gets $300,000

May 19, 2010

This motorcycle-automobile accident case was eventually settled for $300,000. It was a bit unusual, as it was filed against a city because the person involved in the accident was a police officer. The officer was not the biker; the officer was driving the car that was hit by biker.

Here is how it happened: The biker was on his way westbound when a city police cruiser crossed right in front of him (across two lanes) without signaling and without the use of his siren. Witnesses said the biker went out of his way to try and avoid a collision but couldn’t make it happen. He hit the cruiser going 30 mph. the EMS crews at the scene were sure he was brain dead because his injuries were so severe.

The biker sustained severe traumatic brain injuries and head trauma, back and spine injuries and a broken leg. He was eventually diagnosed with cognitive disorder as a result of his traumatic brain injuries. Due to that diagnosis, a personal injury lawsuit was filed against the city. The decision was in favor of the plaintiff who will need care for the rest of his life.

While he may not have known this, the biker and his family, would likely have been eligible to apply for litigation funding. It would have allowed them to be able to wait for a fair and equitable settlement or court verdict. They would be able to pay medical expenses, deal with on-going therapy, pay for medications and other operations, as well as special equipment and life counseling. In addition, lawsuit funding would help pay for ordinary bills and expenses while they wait for justice.

A lawsuit cash advance is money given out in advance of a settlement and is based on the amount the personal injury lawyer feels the courts will award. People who apply for it don’t need to have a job, and don’t need a credit check either. Lawsuit funding usually arrives in about 48 hours or less after you have been approved.

Traumatic Brain Injury: A Silent Menace

April 26, 2010

Every year at least 1.4 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Unfortunately, almost 50,000 people die as a result of their injuries. Most often injuries like this occur from of a blow or impact to the head; most often from an automobile accident. It may surprise you to discover that many brain injuries result from medical malpractice. A TBI may result when a doctor provides substandard care to the patient. This is a form of negligence and may come in many forms. A misdiagnoses or non- diagnoses of a condition, improperly administered anesthesia, a surgical accident (a slip of the scalpel while working on the brain) or some interruption of blood flow to the brain are just a few examples. Anytime someone has a brain injury, the consequences are always serious and in many instances, life-altering.

In any case that involves head trauma, aneurysms or brain tumors, severe brain injury or death may be the end result if the condition is left untreated. Injuries of this nature have devastating consequences for those who have been hurt, and affect many areas of their lives. Victims may be dealing with speech impediments, paralysis, chronic pain, seizures, depression and astronomical medical bills. In addition, brain injuries impact on the whole family.

If the TBI was caused by an auto accident, slip and fall, or medical malpractice, a personal injury lawsuit is often filed by the victim/plaintiff; personal injury litigation takes a long time to resolve and TBI are often disabled as the result of their injuries. These litigants and their attorneys may be interested to know that they may be able to access lawsuit funding during the course of their litigation, to assist them, financially. Litigation funding is money given in the form of a lawsuit cash advance against the future settlement or verdict expected, or predicted by your attorney. The victim may use this lawsuit cash advance to pay mortgage payments, car payments and other important bills and expenses. They can also pay for medical or physical therapy treatments while they await settlement. And lawsuit financing is contingent upon recovery; if you lose your case you do not have to repay the money. The application process is simple; you can apply for free by phone or on the internet. Legal finance might make a huge difference in the bottom line in your case.

School Bus-Automobile Collision Injures 3

April 20, 2010

It was a clear and crisp day in Kentucky when a school bus and a car met head-on. The bus was carrying kids from two elementary schools and headed south on the highway when a northbound car lost control when it hit a patch of ice. It spun out, veered over the median and smacked head-on into the bus.

Three kids on the bus were badly injured and taken to the nearest children’s hospital by EMS crews for medical assistance. The others were transferred to another school bus and returned to their schools. Police on the scene were trying to figure out the exact cause of this accident. The roads were slippery, but drivers, when faced with poor road conditions, should be slowing down and driving with care.
There are unanswered questions here; they revolve around how fast the car was going, whether the driver was paying attention to the roads, and if not, why not? Was the driver too busy doing something else, inexperienced or on a cell phone? When the police get answers, it will determine what kind of citation may be handed out.

Depending on how serious the children’s injuries were, their families might want to talk to a personal injury lawyer about filing a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for their medical bills etc. It never hurts to seek professional advice in cases like this.

If they retain and attorney and pursue personal injury litigation, they will discover that cases like this tend to take a while to be settled or have a verdict handed down. This might mean the families may want to also consider litigation funding to tide them over. Also known as lawsuit funding or a lawsuit cash advance, this type of funding has helped thousands of people pay their immediate bills and provide money to deal with current expenses.

Legal finance services will, very simply, allow the plaintiff(s) wait until they get justice, rather than have to take any offer thrown their way because they desperately need the money. There is no point in letting the insurance company keep your money. Good people utilize lawsuit funding when they are in a bad place and need help paying bills until their lawsuit resolves.
