Proving Fault in Slip and Falls Takes Time. Litigation Funding Helps Plaintiffs During the Wait.

February 27, 2015

A store that welcomes customers onto its property has a duty to keep them reasonably safe. An “unreasonable” condition that contributes to a fall can lead to an injury claim against the store.

Any number of conditions might create property owner liability if a slip and fall accident occurs – defective stairs or walkways, ice or snow covered walkways, improper lighting, fallen debris, items in pathway, wet floors without “wet floor” caution signs, falling merchandise. The possibilities are endless, but regardless of the cause of the slip and fall accident, the legal responsibility of the store will depend on whether it had, or should have reasonably had, notice of the unsafe condition and failed to take prompt action to fix the problem.

Retaining an attorney and filing a lawsuit is only the beginning. Compensation sought could be months, even years away and for a seriously injured or disabled person, one not working as a result of an accident, the financial impact can be devastating. The problem for plaintiffs is that it is sometimes difficult to prove who is at fault, so the litigation process can drag on far beyond a victim’s finances. When this happens, plaintiffs with a strong case can seek litigation funding to pay living expenses while awaiting the outcome of their case.

Litigation funding is not a loan, but rather an advance against the future proceeds of lawsuits. Unlike a bank loan, you only repay our cash advance if, and when, you win your lawsuit. Additionally,
• You make no monthly payments on the pre-settlement advance.
• Your personal credit situation is not a factor nor will it be affected in any manner. Good credit or bad, it doesn’t matter.
• You can receive cash in as little as 24 hours.

Litigation Funding Corporation has helped hundreds of victims over the years level the playing field against large insurance companies. We may be able to help you, too. Have you been injured in a slip and fall accident, retained an attorney, and struggling to make ends meet? Before becoming discouraged about your financial situation, contact Litigation Funding Corporation for a FREE no obligation evaluation to see how much money you may be eligible to receive. Remember, if you lose your case, you owe NOTHING!

Workplace Crush Death Leads to Wrongful Death Lawsuit

February 18, 2015

If a wrongful death lawsuit is filed with the assistance of an attorney, the family or plaintiff of the deceased may apply for pre-settlement funding from a litigation funding company.

In one such horrific wrongful death case, Travis Miller, 25, perished in an elevator shaft while working on the Florida State University (FSU) dorm construction site.

The elevator operator had noticed Miller in the window on his way up the outside of the building, and had made a mental note to tell him on the way down that he needed to move. Unfortunately, he never got the chance to warn Miller.

Miller was perched on the ledge of an open window talking to three of his co-workers when an elevator came down. It pulled him into a one-and-a-half inch space between the building and the elevator. The men yelled to the elevator operator to go back up, immediately.

By the time they pulled the young man back through the window, he was dead. An autopsy report confirmed crushing trauma to Miller’s torso. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is conducting an investigation.

Miller’s family is seeking a least $15 million in their wrongful death lawsuit, alleging the University had a duty to maintain a safe worksite that could have prevented Miller’s death. The suit further alleges that onsite workers were not properly supervised, and that because the site was dangerous, the FSU should have implemented extra safety precautions.

The evidence submitted with the statement of claim showed that the window where Miller sat, and several other windows in the building, had a wedge of plywood in it to avoid this very kind of tragedy. Someone removed those barriers a month prior to the accident, and never replaced them. Apparently the building superintendent was not aware that the plywood had been removed from the windows.

The family was left with the conundrum of how to pay for the extra expense of a funeral and burial, and how they would pay their bills while they waited for their case to go to court. One option they could have considered is applying for litigation funding. A lawsuit loan is fast cash that arrives within a plaintiff’s bank account within 48 hours of being approved for pre-settlement funding.

Once the litigation funding is in place, the family may pay all of their extraordinary expenses and keep their usual monthly financial obligations current. Lawsuit loans are not for everyone, but they are worth checking out to see if the funding they provide can help one hold the line until the case is settled, one way or the other. And, if the case doesn’t win in court? Then there is no need to repay pre-settlement funding, no strings attached.

Man Drowns After Being Knocked Down By Huge Wave in Water Pool

February 5, 2015

A wrongful death case involving the death of a man in a wave pool with his two young daughters occurred during a 2011 holiday. A wave struck 44-year-old Patrick Page while riding in an inner tube, and the force of the impact knocked him out of the tube.

Although Page was only in three feet of water in the Wisconsin Dells’ Wild WaterDome, several other resort guests discovered him face down in the pool. They were attempting to pull him out of the water when lifeguards arrived and began CPR.

Though emergency responders arrived at the scene within minutes, they were unable to revive the father of two. Page’s family chose to file a wrongful death lawsuit, alleging that resort staff were negligent because they were not properly trained, and did not follow proper safety procedures. The suit seeks loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and medical, funeral and burial expenses.

The sudden death of Patrick Page likely posed an enormous shock for the family, emotionally and financially. The loss of the breadwinner created a very difficult financial situation, with two small children left behind needing both care and guidance. The family still had to take care of their usual bills, in addition to funeral and burial expenses.

It is not easy to find several thousand dollars to pay for a funeral and deal with all the other financial matters that crop up when someone dies. The best way to cope with such an enormous burden would be to apply for litigation funding. Litigation funding is an emergency cash loan to a plaintiff who has filed a personal injury lawsuit with the assistance of an attorney.

This pre-settlement funding is a lifesaver for financially strapped plaintiffs, and allows them the peace and time to recover from their ordeal. A lawsuit loan also covers every important bill that needs to be paid – those relating to the father’s death, as well as those usual bills every family has, such as the mortgage, rent or car payments.

Qualified plaintiffs receive their funding within 48 hours or less, provided they have supplied the name of their attorney of record. When insurance companies come calling to ask the plaintiff to settle up as soon as possible, a lawsuit loan allows the family resources to wait until their case receives a fair hearing in court or proceeds to settlement.

Bar Owner Could be Liable for Drunk Driver

February 3, 2015

With fatal auto accidents, lawsuits are often filed against a negligent driver, but in certain cases, local businesses can also be held liable. Thirty states, including Indiana, have statutory provisions that allow licensed establishments such as restaurants, bars, and liquor stores to be held liable for selling or serving alcohol to individuals who cause injuries or death as a result of their intoxication. Victims and their families should promptly seek legal counsel to determine fault and obtain compensation. Losing a family member is devastating enough, but may also be accompanied by immediate expenses, such as medical bills and funeral and burial expenses. After a suit is filed, if the plaintiff needs financial assistance to withstand during a lengthy litigation process, seeking litigation funding may be the answer.

On July 28, 2012, a vehicle struck a utility pole and flipped over. The driver was thrown from the vehicle; he was not wearing a seatbelt. Luckily, he survived the accident, but is passengers did not. The 32-year-old man left the scene and went home where he did call 911. He told police he did so because he could not find his phone at the site of the accident. When police arrived at the scene, they found three other bodies – the driver’s wife and another couple – which had been thrown from the vehicle. All three were not wearing seatbelts.
The sole survivor claimed his wife was driving the CJ7 Jeep at the time of the crash when a deer ran into the roadway causing the accident. But, a jury recently ruled differently charging him on three counts of causing death while operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol level of .15 or greater.

Now the families of the deceased have filed civil lawsuits claiming Salt Creek Brewery provided alcoholic beverages to the man knowing he was intoxicated. The suits claims the group was on their way home from the brewery when the fatal accident occurred. All are asking the court to “award a judgment sufficient to compensate for loss of love and companionship, incurred medical expenses, funeral expenses and burial expenses and all other relief as is just and proper in the premises.” Jury trials are scheduled later this year.

Lawsuits like this are about holding all responsible, including restaurants and bars, fully accountable for their actions. The bar will likely mount a vigorous defense causing the lawsuits to drag out for months, if not years. For plaintiffs who feel they cannot financially wait to seek justice, litigation funding can help.
Litigation funding is a non-recourse cash advance for those who need immediate cash to avoid settling a case too soon, for less than full case value. The only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. There are no credit checks or employment verifications, and unlike a bank loan, there are no monthly payments. The application takes less than five minutes; approvals typically take less than 48 hours. Litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent on the outcome of the case meaning if the case is lost, repayment is excused. Call Litigation Funding Corporation today for a free, no-obligation consultation or to apply.
