Seeking Financial Support During A Pending Personal Injury Lawsuit

April 12, 2018

Every year, thousands of people file personal injury lawsuits. However, waiting for a settlement can be financially devastating. While recovering from injuries, it is can be difficult to think about how to pay bills and put food on the table. Many people don’t know that there is an option to get through a pending lawsuit. It’s called litigation funding.

Litigation funding, also known as lawsuit funding, is a risk-free cash advance against a pending lawsuit. All that is needed to be eligible is a strong case and attorney representation. Once we receive a completed one-page application, a funding specialist will gather case information from the plaintiff’s attorney. The amount of the cash advance is based on the strength of the case and the projected settlement. We don’t ask what you are planning to use the money for – it is yours to spend as you need or want.

Litigation Funding Corporation does not look at credit standing, collateral, or special assets when making a funding decision. There are no monthly payments; the cash advance is repaid once the case is settled. If, however, the case is lost, we completely waive repayment.

If you are in a personal injury lawsuit and the added financial strain is making it more difficult to pay even the ordinary household bills, give us a call or fill out our one-page application.

High Bilirubin Levels Leading to Jaundice Leave Toddler’s Brain Damaged

May 17, 2017

Parents of a toddler, who sustained brain damage, received $46.5 million in a medical malpractice verdict.

When the baby was born in 2014, her blood tests indicated high bilirubin levels. There were no further tests done and the hospital did not administer phototherapy lights to treat the baby’s jaundice, the required steps for treatment. Jaundice is an indicator of high levels of bilirubin and if it is ignored it penetrates a newborn’s blood brain barrier, causing brain damage.

Due to the untreated jaundice, the baby suffered developmental delays and is unable to walk without help. The now two-year-old requires 24-hour care for the rest of her life. The parents filed a medical negligence lawsuit against the hospital and the physician in charge of the delivery, alleging they did not follow national patient safety guidelines relating to newborn jaundice.

According to expert witness testimony, the child’s bilirubin levels were examined when she was less than two hours old. However, the results were compared to what an acceptable level would be for a two-day-old child. The brain damage resulting from the untreated bilirubin levels is considered a mistake that was preventable, according to the National Quality Forum.

The jury found the doctor to be 85 percent liable for the damages and the hospital to be 15 percent liable.

Medical negligence lawsuits take many months and sometimes years to be resolved. In the meantime, families will often struggle to pay their monthly financial obligations, prior medical bills and ongoing medical expenses. By contacting an experienced medical malpractice attorney, families are able to seek lawsuit funding for financial assistance to allow them to wait for a settlement or court verdict for the full and fair value of the case.

Most plaintiffs find lawsuit funding, also referred to as pre-settlement funding, to be a lifeline while waiting for their lawsuit to be resolved. A “lawsuit loan” offers victims the strategic advantage of having cash-on-hand to wait for a reasonable offer.

An application for pre-settlement funding may be handled over the phone or online. It only takes five minutes to get that done and there are no credit checks, monthly payments or upfront fees. Lawsuit funding is a no-risk quick cash advance and can mean the difference between an equitable settlement and a low-ball mediocre one.

Man Files Lawsuit against Cleaning Company for Eye Injuries

May 3, 2017

Serious injuries can mean a victim is temporarily or permanently unable to work, maybe even disfigured for life. If the injured party has retained a personal injury attorney and filed a lawsuit, he may wish to seek lawsuit funding to pay the bills while waiting for a fair settlement.

A Texas man has filed a lawsuit against a cleaning company and one of its employees, alleging their negligence in maintaining a safe work environment led to his injuries.

In April 2015, the plaintiff was supervising four other workers inside a reactor within a refinery when there was a wash down, involving water and other fluids. Shortly thereafter, the plaintiff said he began experiencing extreme pain and discomfort in his left eye. The lawsuit states that as a result of the defendants failure to provide a warning that a wash down was about to occur, the plaintiff suffered physical impairment, medical expenses, and lost wages.

The plaintiff seeks a trial by jury and compensation up to $1 million.

Most industrial accidents are dealt with under the auspices of workers’ compensation law. That’s the general rule of thumb, but there are exceptions. One of those is if the accident was due to negligence, as alleged in this case.

A personal injury lawsuit resulting from an industrial accident is a way to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A lawsuit is also a means to hold a business accountable for negligence.

In cases like this, filing a lawsuit and waiting out the litigation process can take years. If the injured plaintiff is facing cash flow problems, making it difficult to pay the bills, lawsuit funding may be an option.
Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance based solely on the merits of the lawsuit. Therefore, credit standing and employment status do not matter. Additionally, there are no payments until the case settles. In the event the funded plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is excused.

The application process is quick and easy. If the applicant is approved, the lawsuit cash advance can be available within 24 – 48 hours. The money can be used for whatever the funded client chooses, although it is typically used to pay medical expenses, household bills, mortgage, and other immediate and necessary expenses.

Two Spectators Killed after ATV Competition Accident in Alabama

April 28, 2017

Those who host a public event need to understand that they have the responsibility for the safety of their guests. If careless, negligent and reckless acts of the defendant results in an injury or death of a guest, the victim has the right to be compensated for under a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

Two spectators died after an ATV accident at an off-highway vehicle park event in Bremen Alabama.
A 34-year-old male died and the scene and a 22-year-old female was pronounced dead at the hospital after being struck by an ATV that flipped, according to reports. Three other people suffered injuries.

While no other specific details about the accident have been confirmed, witnesses at the scene said that the ATV was in a competition at the park when it ascended a hill before the drive lost control and flipped into spectators.
An investigation is under way.

When someone has been seriously injured or lost a loved one in an ATV accident, they may have the right to seek compensation for their injuries or loss. A lawsuit could potentially lay out a litany of issues including improper placement of spectators, a poorly designed “track”, a defective ATV, and/or an inexperienced driver. While Lawsuit Financial cannot provide legal consultation for ATV accidents, once a lawsuit has been filed by an experienced attorney, we can assist plaintiffs in securing lawsuit funding until the case settles.

Lawsuit funding is a transaction where a plaintiff sells a portion of the proceeds of the settlement in exchange for immediate cash. The advance can be used anyway the client wishes, but it meant to cover mortgage payments, car payments, funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses, and ongoing daily living expenses. This is a non-recourse cash advance, meaning that it is only repaid when the case successfully settles. If the case fails, the plaintiff keeps the money, free of charge.

A lawsuit cash advance is a perfect solution for plaintiffs who are unable to secure a traditional bank loan, obtain funds from relatives, or have salable assets. These legal finance transactions are based on the strength of the case; credit and employment status do not matter. Our online application takes less than 5 minutes to complete. Funding can often be available in less than 48 hours after receipt of a completed application.

If you are experiencing financial hardship as a result of an ATV accident, don’t let the financial stress of pursuing compensation through the legal system force you to accept an early settlement offer. A lawsuit cash advance from Litigation Funding Corporation may give you the financial staying power to endure the legal process and obtain a larger award.

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!

Alleged Negligence Leads to Death of Patient at Drug Treatment Facility

March 22, 2017

A Pennsylvania woman filed suit against a drug treatment facility and its personnel alleging negligence in the treatment of her drug addicted 43-year-old husband.

On admission to the drug addiction center, the patient was given a cocktail of 17 drugs to assist in the withdrawal process, including: Subutex, Phenobarbital, Vistaril, Librium, Tylenol, Serax, Folic Acide, Prilosec, Colase, Catapres, Cymbalta Bentyl, Abilify, and Albuterol.

During his stay at the clinic, the patient complained of withdrawal symptoms, and the physician diagnosed alcohol, opiate, benzo and cocaine dependence. He was given Subutex, and several other drugs at that time, which are known to be respiratory depressants. The patient was found dead in his room later in the day on January 9, 2015. Although CPR was attempted, he never regained consciousness and died shortly thereafter.

The Pennsylvania drug addiction center and two doctors were named in this medical negligence lawsuit filed by the decedent’s wife, the administratrix of his estate. According to the statement of claim, the deceased voluntarily entered the drug addiction treatment center to seek help. The man was screened by staff prior to admission, a process that included obtaining a detailed mental and physical health history, a psychosocial assessment and a complete physical.

The plaintiff alleged that during the admission process, the defendants were alerted or should have become aware that the deceased had physical and psychological problems. The deceased was addicted to alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine. In addition, he had a long history of anxiety, depression, asthma, tachycardia, bipolar disorder and vocal cord dysfunction.

The plaintiff further alleged her husband’s death was caused by the collective negligence of the staff and medical personnel at the drug treatment facility. The plaintiff is seeking personal injury damages.

Cases such as this one may take months or years to be resolved and even when a resolution is reached, settlement monies may be delayed, creating financial difficulties for the plaintiff. Insurance companies are reluctant to write a settlement check. In a situation such as this, reach out to Litigation Funding Corporation and ask about a lawsuit cash advance.

Lawsuit funding is not only used during trial litigation, but it is also used when a plaintiff’s case is pending an appeal or they are waiting on a settlement check. A lawsuit cash advance is not to be confused with a loan. Repayment is contingent on receiving a settlement. If the plaintiff loses the case, any repayment is waived.

Lawsuit Alleges Medication Caused Kidney Damage

March 6, 2017

Over the years, hundreds of medications have been prescribed to treat illness, only to cause serious or life-threatening side effects. Despite the dangers, some pharmaceutical companies continue to sell their medications, even hiding information to get FDA approval. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of adverse side effects due to negligence or failure to warn by a drug manufacturer, lawsuit funding may give you financial stability during a pending lawsuit.

A California woman alleges medication prescribed to treat heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease caused kidney damage.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs allege that in 2016, the woman suffered physical injuries, including damages to her kidney, due to taking Prilosec. The woman alleges that as a result she required a kidney transplant because of proton pump inhibitor use. The plaintiffs allege that The Procter & Gamble Co., Astrazeneca Pharmaceuticals LP and Does 1 to 50 were negligent for failing to provide appropriate warnings against the continued use of the drug and failing to appropriately warn the woman’s health care providers about the side effects and risks.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages up to $5 million.

Litigation Funding Corporation understands that the litigation process from a defective drug lawsuit can take years to settle, as it is very difficult to compete with a major pharmaceutical company that is can afford to wait. Victims of injury from dangerous drugs may already be experiencing financial distress, leaving them at risk for bankruptcy or foreclosure. With the help of Litigation Funding, plaintiffs do not have to suffer financial hardship. We can provide a lawsuit cash advance so they can focus on recovery.

Family Files Lawsuit Alleging Nursing Home Negligence After Resident Dies From Smoking Injurie

February 16, 2017

When you place your elderly loved one in a nursing home facility, it typically follows much consideration as to the needs of the elderly. You want to make sure that your loved one will be well-cared for and safe. Adequate supervision is crucial in protecting the safety of residents. Failure to do so is considered neglect and can result in injury, even death. A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for one’s loss. It may also be a means to improve safety and quality of care.

The family of a Pennsylvania man with Bipolar Disorder and Parkinson’s disease has filed a lawsuit against the nursing home where the man resided after he died from injuries sustained while smoking at the facility.

The patient needed assistance to eat, get dressed, and for personal hygiene, and was wheel-chair bound. He allegedly left the dining hall and went on a 9th floor balcony to smoke. The man was alone when an employee across the hall noticed the man was engulfed in flames, apparently after a paper ad plastic food shield he was wearing caught fire. The man was transported to a medical center where he was treated for serious burns, but he died less than a month later.

Smokers typically used a communal area on the ground floor with lighters attached to the walls, but the facility allegedly allowed residents to smoke on balconies following a recent Norovirus outbreak. In the case of this patient, however, he should not have been allowed to smoke unsupervised. In 2014, he endured an accidental cigarette burn and was transitioned from unsupervised smoking status to supervised.

The lawsuit alleges the nursing home was negligent in failing to protect its residents from avoidable accidents and allowing the man to smoke unsupervised. The lawsuit cites a Department of Health & Human Services report that found the nursing home did not meet state requirements and failed to provide a safe environment for residents who smoke. The report found that of those smokers interviewed, 30 percent suffered injuries. The plaintiff seeks for more than $150,000 in damages.

If your loved one suffered serious injuries or death because of nursing home negligence or the facility’s failure to fulfill its care obligations, you may have grounds for a nursing home lawsuit. Contact an experience attorney as soon as possible. If you are seeking financial assistance during a personal injury or wrongful death case, consider lawsuit funding. A lawsuit cash advance helps you pay the bills while giving your attorney time to strategize for a fair and equitable settlement.

A lawsuit cash advance take be obtained within 24 – 48 hours after receipt of a funding application and case documentation. Because lawsuit funding is not a traditional loan, factors such as employment history and financial standing are not required. The only concern is the validity of the lawsuit and the likelihood of its success. Additionally, repayment of the cash advance is completely based upon the settlement. If the case is lost, you owe us nothing.

If you believe you or a family member has experienced any form of abuse or neglect while residing in a nursing facility, consult an experienced attorney. If you are in a pending claim, and need financial assistance, contact Litigation Funding Corporation. Acquiring litigation funding could be the monetary flexibility you need, when you need it most.

How Does Litigation Funding Corporation Help Plaintiffs in a Pending Lawsuit?

If you have been injured due to the negligence of someone else, you deserve to be compensated.
