Litigation Funding Supports Hit-and-Run Accident Cases

May 28, 2015

A serious hit-and-run accident can lead to inevitable financial costs for the victim, let alone the emotional and psychological trauma that might accompany the accident. While a personal injury attorney can assist in investigating the accident and obtaining full recovery, the victim may be unable to return to work. Unfortunately, there are bills to pay and perhaps a family to consider. In times like this, litigation funding can be a useful resource.

Litigation funding is a mechanism through which a plaintiff can receive emergency cash when they may not have the funds to wait months, or years, to reach a settlement. With Litigation Funding Corporation, plaintiffs can get cash as quickly as 24 hours. All that is needed to qualify is a serious injury, a viable lawsuit, and be represented by an attorney. We do not require our clients to put up collateral or have sound credit. Best of all, our funding is provided on a non-recourse basis. What this means is that if the lawsuit does not settle, the lawsuit cash advance is not repaid. There are no out of pocket expenses or monthly payments. Furthermore, there are no restrictions on the funds’ use and can be repaid at any time prior to the lawsuit’s settlement or ultimate recovery.

Were you injured in a hit and run accident? If the at-fault driver is not found, you may still have a claim for injuries under your own policy, if you have uninsured coverage. Once you retain an attorney, if you need financial assistance to sustain the endlessly waiting for your case to settle, contact Litigation Funding Corporation. Applying for funding is quick and easy online or by calling our office. If we approve your request, we will immediately send you and your attorney our terms and cash offer. Should you accept our offer, you can have your funds in as little as 24 hours. Then, all you have to concern yourself with is recovering from your injuries while your attorney pursues the best settlement in your case.

Litigation Funding Corporation Assists with Financial Needs during Pending Medical Malpractice Claim

May 26, 2015

If you are reading this, then you have probably suffered serious injury or lost a loved one at the hands of a medical professional. You may have contacted a medical malpractice attorney to determine your rights and compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and loss of income. Although a lawsuit will not take away the pain and suffering, or even bring a loved one back, it can play a role in ensuring the same devastating medical error does not happen to someone else.

Sadly, malpractice lawsuits can take years to settle. As the case drags on, the emotional and financial burdens increase for the plaintiffs. Simply paying day-to-day living expenses can be a struggle, let alone adding expenses such as those associated with physical therapy, long-term care, or funeral and burial expenses. Finances can be more devastating if the victim was the sole provider. The defendant will typically “delay, deny, confuse and refuse” until the plaintiff financially can’t hold out any longer. To avoid an early settlement and wait for fair compensation, plaintiffs should consider medical malpractice litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance to help pay the bills without monthly payments or risking your credit reputation. Because funding approval is based entirely on case strength there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Repayment is made once your case successfully settles; lose and you are not required to pay back the money.

After completing a funding application, we will contact your attorney for necessary case documentation. Then, your case will be evaluated by our underwriters and if approved, funds can be wired into your account within 24-48 hours. It is that simple!

Don’t struggle financially or settle early and cheap. If you are seeking litigation funding for your medical malpractice case, we stand ready, willing and able to assist you. We have provided medical malpractice funding for many types of cases including, but not limited to:

•Failure to diagnose a serious condition
•Birth trauma
•Botched surgery
•Failure to prevent or clear infection
•Misdiagnosis of a serious condition
•Administering defective or dangerous medication or providing the wrong dosage
•Negligent administration of anesthesia
•Neglect and/or abuse in hospitals or nursing homes

Failure to Monitor an Anticoagulant Contributed to the Death of Helen Kill

May 18, 2015

Failure to monitor a patient on an anticoagulant is the alleged cause of Helen Kill’s death on October 3, 2013.

According to the details of the statement of claim filed with the lawsuit, Kill passed away as a result of complications from bleeding into her brain. The suit that her son filed seeks damages for the pain and suffering she experienced, loss of the enjoyment of life, mental anguish and subsequent death. The suit is also seeking compensation for medical, funeral and burial expenses.

Helen Kill’s family choose to file a medical malpractice, wrongful death lawsuit against the Lima Memorial Health System, the Heart Institute of Northwest Ohio and physician/cardiologist Dr. Pamela Gardner. The suit suggests that the medical professionals did not properly monitor or take care of of Kill and, as a result, she died. The lawsuit further alleges that the named defendants were negligent in their duty of care to Helen Kill.

Faced with medical bills on top of usual monthly financial obligations, Kill’s family may be interested in applying for an emergency fast cash lawsuit loan from a litigation funding company. Litigation funding or pre-settlement funding is an emergency lawsuit loan that allows the plaintiff to take care of all their bills immediately. Those bills would include not just unusual and unexpected medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, but other important financial commitments, such as mortgage payments or rent, school tuition or student loans and other pressing financial necessities.

The application process is user-friendly and all the plaintiff needs to do is fill out the required paperwork online. The plaintiff must have hired an attorney in order to be eligible for pre-settlement funding. Once an applicant has been approved, the necessary funding is sent directly to their bank account within 48 hours or less. It is direct deposit and provides immediate access so the plaintiff can begin paying their debts. A lawsuit loan offers peace of mind to applicants, as they can afford to appear in court and have no need to settle for less than they may be entitled to. While pre-settlement funding is not for everyone, it is worth investigating as a possible option.

Win Your Personal Injury Lawsuit with the Help of Litigation Funding

A personal injury can be a life-changing moment, leaving you with severe injuries and disabilities, as well as a financial and emotional stress as the bills pile up. Magnifying the situation is the deep pockets of insurance companies and corporations who try to extend the lawsuit and drag it out as part of their strategy. Defendants know it’s just a matter of time before a plaintiff’s financial situation becomes overwhelming. That’s when a settlement is offered and a vulnerable plaintiff will rationalize that “something is better than nothing.” A better solution is to keep the case strong with litigation funding.

Litigation funding can help plaintiff’s avoid financial ruin and pressures as they await a settlement in a long drawn-out legal case. When a funding company steps in and provides a lawsuit cash advance, it is not a loan. It is non-recourse funding meaning the money is advanced and is repaid if, and when, the lawsuit is settled or a verdict is reached. There is no credit check, employment history, or collateral required for approval. Funding is based solely on the strength of the case and can be obtained within 48 hours of the funding company receiving pertinent documentation.

Don’t settle for less compensation than you deserve. If you are a plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit and need litigation funding to help you stand up for your rights and fight your case, give us a call, toll free, at 1-866-548-3863. A member of our team would be happy to discuss your lawsuit financing options.

Mislabeled Cookie Leads to Fatal Anaphylactic Shock for 11-Year-Old

May 15, 2015

Eleven-year-old Landon Wood had no idea that a cookie purchased at a Publix Super Market would trigger his severe nut allergy, causing him to go into anaphylactic shock and die.

The Wood family were on a trip to visit Landon’s aunt in Clarksville, Tenn. His mother, Beth Cline, always made sure to carry an EpiPen with her as an emergency response to her son’s allergy. During their trip, they went shopping at a local Publix Super Market, complete with a bakery counter loaded with all kinds of enticing goodies, including muffins, pastries, cookies and brownies.

None of the products had warning labels on them relating to allergens possibly being present in the baking, nor were there any signs suggesting there may be issues with the cross-contamination of products produced in the presence of nuts. Landon asked for a cookie and his mother checked with the employee behind the bakery counter about the contents and exposure to contaminants of the baked treats. The store employee stated their “Chocolate Chew” cookie did not contain tree nut allergens. The label on the cookie also carried no such information.

When the family had returned home to their aunt’s house, Beth Cline took a bite of the cookie to test it first. She did not detect the presence of any nuts and gave it to her son to eat. Three bites later he insisted there was something in it because his mouth had started to burn. As it turned out, the Chocolate Chew did contain walnuts.

Even though Landon’s mother promptly administered his EpiPen, his condition worsened and he lost consciousness. Medical staff was unable to revive him at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and Landon passed away on June 3, 2014. Publix offered the family their deepest condolences for the loss of Landon. The family decided to file a wrongful death lawsuit, not to garner financial reward, but to attempt to raise awareness of how deadly food allergies can be in children and others with similar issues.
The statement of claim for the lawsuit does suggest Publix needs to be following federal food labelling laws relating to food allergens.

The sudden death of their son and the medical, funeral and burial expenses would be difficult for the family to handle all at once, in conjunction with their usual financial obligations. In their situation, applying for litigation funding, an emergency cash lawsuit loan that allows plaintiffs in difficult financial circumstances to pay their pressing necessity bills right away, might provide some financial support. Any cash left over after all vital and usual expenses have been paid may be kept to use while waiting for the case to be settled or until it goes to trial.

Plaintiffs only need to have an attorney of record to contact a litigation finance company and discuss applying for pre-settlement funding. It is a user-friendly system with no requirement of a credit check, employment verification or any payment upfront or during the duration of the lawsuit loan. Should they lose their case in court, the plaintiffs retain the pre-settlement funding, with zero strings attached.

When your ability to work is affected, the longer your case lasts, the more difficult it becomes to pay everyday bills. Litigation funding can help you avoid a financial disaster such as foreclosure, eviction, bankruptcy and ruined credit. A series of well-placed non-recourse lawsuit advances can often ease the financial pressure to settle early for too little.

Hayride Lawsuit will be a Bumpy Road

May 5, 2015

Police determined that the driver of a tractor-pulled hayride accident in Michigan had a blood-alcohol level of .06 at the time of the accident. The legal limit for a motor vehicle drive in the state is .08 percent. It was determined that the driver was going too fast as he took a sharp turn, tipping the wooden wagon. All passengers on board were thrown out. Several victims were taken to area hospitals while others were treated at the scene. Among the injuries were concussions, broken ribs, a broken jaw, scrapes, bruises and neck and arm injuries. The driver said passengers in the hayride ignored instructions to remain seated and were moving around, shifting weight in the wagon before it tipped over. It was later determined that the driver had drinks earlier in the day at a nearby restaurant when he was off duty because it was his birthday. The hayride occurred a few hours later.

In March, a woman and her daughter filed a lawsuit against the city seeking $25,000 in damages, but the city is fighting back saying the woman is actually responsible for any liability because she signed a hold harmless agreement on behalf of her group. The city is asking a judge to dismiss the lawsuit and is seeking attorney fees. According to her attorney, “The city shirked its responsibilities to the public and to its customers. They charge for the hayride and yet they don’t meet their responsibilities. The safety, health and welfare of its riders are completely in the control the [city] and its employed driver on the hayride. With the significant responsibility of the safety of its passengers, the employer should take whatever steps necessary to assure safety…” A counterclaim says the woman did not have the authority to sign for the association. Five other victims have also filed lawsuits; the lawsuits may be consolidated.

Although a lawsuit can help the victims received compensation for damages, it will not be an easy road as the defendant attempts to the raise the doctrine known as assumption of the risk. While her attorney works to prove negligence and accountability, the victims may struggle to pay the bills, especially if there has been an inability to return to work, resulting in lost income. When the legal process is a long and bumpy road, litigation funding can help.

There are no application fees, credit checks, or monthly payments; we approve funding based solely on case strength.
