Wrongful Death Litigation Funding While Recovering Damages For Loss of A Loved One In House Fire

October 27, 2015

The families of two people who died in a house fire have filed a lawsuit against the home’s owner for negligence and wrongful death. The two-alarm fire broke out last June at a row house in Washington’s DuPont Circle, resulting in blackened walls and shattered windows. Five people, including three firefighters, were transported to the hospital with serious injuries. The two deceased victims were trapped on the third floor.
The lawsuits claim that the homeowners had multiple tenants on multiple floors in the home with appliances that were improperly installed and maintained, violating the D.C. Fire Code. The suits also contends that the home did not have working smoke detectors or fire extinguishers, the windows that wouldn’t open, and there was no fire escape ladder. Each family seeks $10 million in damages.

While no amount of money will return bring these loved ones back, a reasonable award will help the families with funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering, and other expenses incurred due to this tragedy. Unfortunately, this usually takes time leaving plaintiffs in a financial dilemma – accept a quick settlement or apply for litigation funding.

With a solid lawsuit as collateral, these families have a good case for lawsuit funding. This emergency cash advance can keep them financially afloat until a settlement is reached. The application process takes five minutes, as there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Once a case is approved for funding, the lawsuit cash advance can be available in less than 48 hours. There are no monthly payments; the advance is repaid once the case successfully settles. Should the case be lost, the repayment is completely excused.

Litigation Funding May Be A Financial Solution During Your Pending Wrongful Death Lawsuit

October 21, 2015

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the father of a 20-year-old who lost control of his vehicle and slammed into a building, killing one passenger and seriously injuring another. The driver was in a coma for months, and remains “physically and mentally incapacitated.” Although he is undergoing 18 hours of physical therapy a week, doctors do not feel he will ever be competent. The surviving passenger has no recollection of the night and continues to suffer lasting injuries from the accident.

Authorities said the young man was speeding and under the influence of controlled dangerous substances last summer when his Honda Civic slammed into a building. The lawsuit claims that his father should have known or knew about his son’s history of drunk driving. County records indicated that he was jailed on a marijuana distribution charge in November. His license had been previously suspended for stemming from a summons for driving under the influence.

In addition to naming the driver and his father, the suit seeks to hold responsible those who gave him the alcohol, as well as those who drank with him. The lawsuit alleges that before the accident, the driver was at the property of the unidentified defendants, and that he was already “visibly intoxicated” when those unnamed defendants continued to provide, share, and condone the consumption of alcoholic beverages and/or controlled, dangerous substances.

This lawsuit will most likely take a long time to settle because one passenger is dead, the other has no memory, and the driver is incompetent, making it difficult to determine what the driver did and with whom just before the crash. The cost of a funeral in itself can also be quite pricey. Medical bills can also lead to financial devastation. While these victims and their families did not cause this tragic situation, nonetheless it is one they are facing, and will continue to face for a long time.

Litigation funding is a quick and easy solution to alleviate financial stress after the wrongful loss or serious injury of a loved one. A lawsuit cash advance would allow the family precious time to wait for a fair and equitable settlement; if they desperately need money now, the only other alternative would be to settle a valuable case for pennies on the dollar to pay their bills. The only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. A plaintiff can apply for this non-recourse cash advance either online or over the phone; the process takes less than five minutes; approvals take 48 hours or less. Lawsuit funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if you lose, repayment is excused.

For any plaintiff who feels they cannot financially wait to seek justice in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, lawsuit funding may be the solution. Call Litigation Funding Corporation today for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Football Star Beau Orth’s Wrong Level Spine Surgery Ruined His Career

Beau Orth, a former University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) football player, had a promising football career ahead of him until he had wrong-level surgery on his spine — an operation that ended any chances of him ever playing again.

Beau Orth seemingly had a chance at a career playing football and was looking forward to playing professionally. He went in to surgery to treat a herniated disc, which consisted of a micro-discectomy at LS-S1. His doctor told him that surgery was simple and easy and would allow him to play in a few weeks. Orth, who was 21 years old at the time, came out of surgery to discover the surgeon, Dr. Albert Capanna, had operated on L4-5, not LS-S1.

The result was a severe collapse of his disc. His spine was permanently damaged and he would never play football again. He faces the prospect of multiple future surgeries to attempt to correct the damage left behind by Capanna. According to the statement of claim, Capanna had reportedly also conducted a wrong-level surgery on at least one other UNLV football player.

The medical malpractice lawsuit seeks damages and hopes to make a statement that this type of error should never happen to any other players or patients. Medical bills in a situation such as this are staggeringly high, and even though Orth may have earned money from his early football career, it would be difficult to pay off the bills, particularly since he will require several future surgeries.

The ongoing expenses, medications and rehabilitation are going to becostly. Orth may wish to consider applying for pre-settlement funding from a litigation funding company. It is a user-friendly process and an application may be filled out online or by calling the lawsuit loan company directly.

Once the details of the case have been reviewed with the attorney-of-record and the application has been approved, the funds are expedited to the plaintiff, landing directly in his or her bank account in less than 48 hours. Applicants for pre-settlement funding are not required to be working when they apply, are not expected to go through a credit check and do not pay any funds upfront or throughout the duration of the lawsuit loan. They also do not have to deal with any insurance companies seeking to mitigate their losses by trying to get the plaintiff to settle for less than what they may get in court or on settlement.

Vascular Surgery Leaves Man Deaf and Blind

October 16, 2015

Robert Klade was left deaf and blind after vascular surgery. He elected to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital, surgeon and anesthesiologist seeking compensation for his injuries.

Klade’s lawsuit is seeking compensation of more than $75,000 for emotional distress, mental anguish, pain, suffering, medical and rehabilitative costs, loss of income, loss of employment, loss of earning capacity and loss of enjoyment of life as a result of elective vascular surgery to repair an open aortic aneurysm in December 2012. The suit also alleges the hospital and its medical staff were negligent for not reducing/reversing Klade’s heparin, not ordering an activated clotting time test and not appropriately handling Klade’s hypotension (low blood pressure).

According to the information filed with the complaint, Klade was given heparin before, during and after the surgery. His surgeon was Dr. Scott Charette and the anesthesiologist was Dr. Robert Childs. The complaint detailed that Klade lost 3,200 ml of blood during the surgery and his heparin was not reduced after the surgery. He was taken to recovery and two hours later transferred to a critical care unit with dangerously low blood pressure.

After being in critical care for two hours both doctors agreed Klade was likely suffering from internal bleeding and he was taken back into surgery. Despite an exploratory operation to determine the source of blood filling Klade’s abdomen, Charette could not find a specific source. Klade was taken back to critical care and remained heavily sedated and on a ventilator for several weeks. He was eventually stable enough to be taken to physical therapy where it was discovered he was blind and almost totally deaf. Klade needs care for the rest of his life.

The medical expenses in a case such as this one would be enormous and difficult to pay. The family would be hard pressed to keep up with their usual financial obligations without attempting to pay the thousands of dollars billed for two surgeries and a prolonged stay in a hospital. Although there are a number of possible solutions, including attempting to secure a personal loan from family members, the best resolution to this dilemma would be applying for litigation funding. A lawsuit loan is emergency funding sent directly to an approved plaintiff, done within 24 to 48 hours. The funds are sent by the fastest method possible and may be used by the plaintiff for anything.

Most, however, take care of their pressing medical bills and hang on to the rest of the funds to deal with any other financial necessity that arises while they are waiting for their case to go to settlement or trial. Cash strapped plaintiffs find pre-settlement funding appealing for a number of reasons. Once they have such funding, they are not obligated to deal with insurance companies in a hurry to get them to settle cheaply, and if they lose their case in court, they get to keep the loan with no strings attached.
