Trucking Company Named in Auto Accident Lawsuit

May 9, 2017

A personal injury is that life-changing moment when you are seriously injured as the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. The most obvious example of this is an automobile accident.

Waiting for a personal injury case to settle can be very difficult financially and mentally. Injuries may prevent the victim from earning a living and support a family. A financially desperate plaintiff is not in a favorable position regarding settlement negotiations; this person will often settle for too little, too soon. Litigation funding helps plaintiffs take care of financial obligations while giving their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice.

A Missouri man recently filed an auto accident lawsuit against a commercial trucking company alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in September 2015, he was traveling in a Dodge Ram pick-up truck when he collided with a semi-truck. The pick-up was heavily damaged and had to be towed from the scene.

The plaintiff alleges that the cause of the crash was because the semi driver failed to reduce speed, failed to yield the right-of-way, and failed to keep a proper lookout. The suit also claims that the trucking company failed provide adequate training and failed to obey the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, Illinois law, safe trucking industry standards and safe commercial truck driving rules.

As a result of the crash, the plaintiff claims he suffered physical injuries and incurred expenses in excess of $60,485.02. He requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for a sum in excess of $100,000.

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.

April 25, 2017

Cruise Ship Passenger Files Lawsuit Alleging Negligence Led to Fall Injuries

April 11, 2017

It’s unfortunate, but accidents and injuries are common among passengers on their cruise vacation. The most common injuries on a cruise ship involves people who have slipped or tripped and fell. Injuries can range from broken arms and legs to more serious head, neck and brain injuries often resulting in lost wages, astronomical medical expenses and pain and suffering. Many passengers don’t realize that the cruise line might be liable for injuries sustained.

A cruise ship passenger has filed a lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries after she was struck by a sliding door.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 13, 2016, she was aboard the cruise ship, Carnival Breeze when a sliding glass door suddenly and unexpectedly closed, striking her. As a result, the passenger said she lost her balance and fell to the ground. Her injuries led to pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses. The woman holds Carnival responsible for allegedly failing to properly maintain the sliding door in a reasonably safe condition and failing to warn passengers of the dangerous condition of the sliding door.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of the court.
Simply because someone gets hurt on a cruise ship does not mean that it is necessarily the cruise line’s fault. Understanding the significance of a simple accident and a meritorious legal claim is crucial. Therefore, it is important to seek legal advice from an experienced maritime attorney.

These types of cases are difficult to navigate and cruise lines will vigorously deny and defend the claim. The wheels of justice turn much too slowly, especially for cash-strapped plaintiffs. Litigation funding may be the answer.

With a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs can meet financial obligations while the lawsuit winds its way through the courts. Once we received a funding application, we will request some case documentation, evaluate the lawsuit to determine case strength, and if approved, direct deposit or overnight mail funding within 24 – 48 hours. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. We are only paid when the case settles or results in a favorable verdict. In the event the case is lost, repayment of the cash advance is completely waived.

If you’ve been injured while sailing with Carnival or any cruise line and believe that your injury was sustained due to the negligence of the crew, the cruise line or even a fellow passenger, consult an experienced attorney to know your rights to compensation. If you are strapped for cash, avoid settling your case too early, for too little.

Jury Awards Nearly $8 Million to Motorcyclist with Permanent Injuries from Drunk Driving Crash

April 5, 2017

Auto accidents are bad enough, but there is no acceptable excuse for impaired driving. Here is a verdict that Litigation Funding Corporation hopes will send a message to drivers and businesses about the serious consequences of drunken driving.

An Arizona jury has awarded nearly $8 million in damages, resulting from an August 2013 motorcycle crash.
The 42-year-old victim was on his way home when he was struck by a drunk driver, leaving him with permanent injuries. He said due to the injuries sustained, he required surgeries on his neck and suffers increased fatigue as his day progresses.

According to reports, the negligent driver’s BAC was 0.154 at the time of the crash, almost twice the legal limit. He served three years and one month for aggravated assault in connection with the crash.

The victim and his wife filed a civil lawsuit against the drunk driver and the bar where the man was drinking prior to the crash. The suit alleged that the bar kept serving the man after it should have stopped. The jury awarded the plaintiff $5.4 million from the bar and $2.5 million from the negligent driver for past and future wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. The verdict and award still must be affirmed by the Supreme Court judge.

It took 3 1/2 years to obtain an award in this case, but no money has yet to change hands. This family has gone years with mounting medical bills and loss of income due to a preventable accident. Plaintiffs in cases like this will often benefit from litigation funding.

A bar can be held accountable for a personal injury or 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. Dram shop liability laws vary widely state to state; 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, even years away. By the time the plaintiff is able to see a settlement, he may face financial ruin. While waiting to obtain justice, litigation funding would allow the plaintiff to stay financially afloat.

When applying for a lawsuit cash advance, an applicant only needs to provide case details to the funding company. There are no credit checks; credit history does not matter and there is no need to prove employment. Once approved, funding can be available within 24-48 hours. There are no monthly payments to make and the money can be used at the plaintiff’s discretion. Best of all, litigation funding is risk-free; the cash advance is only repaid if, and when the case successfully settles.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to a drunk driver, are in a pending lawsuit, and facing serious financial challenges while waiting for a settlement, you owe it to yourself to Litigation Funding Corporation for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

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.
