Litigation Funding is a Financial Solution to Fight a Failure to Diagnosis Medical Condition

June 22, 2016

One of the most common medical mistakes is the misdiagnosis of symptoms or the failure to diagnose a medical condition. Such actions can prevent a patient from receive treatment which could significantly impact their condition. If injuries resulting from a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose could have been prevented, the patient and their family should not be responsible for the damages caused.

If you are living with consequences of a medical mistake, or if a loved one died because of a doctor’s negligence, it is important to contact a medical malpractice attorney to determine your rights. The time it takes to complete a medical malpractice claim depends on the complexity and strength of the case, as well as the bandwidth of the court of jurisdiction. The last thing a victim needs to worry about is how to keep up with financial obligations. When plaintiffs are facing mounting bills and few options, litigation funding could be the perfect solution.

Litigation Funding Corporation helps plaintiffs who are struggling to make ends meet without sufficient funds to handle unexpected medical bills and ordinary living expenses. Without this option, desperate plaintiffs are often forced to settlements too soon, for too little. When plaintiffs a financially stable, they are able to remain in a case longer in order to pursue a larger settlement.

When applying for funding, we only care about case strength. There are no out-of-pocket fees, no credit checks, no income requirements and no employment verification. Best of all, repayment is contingent on the outcome of the lawsuit. If the case is lost, our repayment is lost as well. Once case documentation is reviewed and the strength of the case determined, if approved for a lawsuit cash advance, the money can be available within 24 – 48 hours.

Don’t let money problems or a financial emergency force you and your attorney to settle your medical negligence case for less than you deserve when we may have the mechanism you need to pay your bills, keep your credit standing, and fight for your rights.

Litigation Funding Helps Victims of Wrong-Way Auto Crashes

June 17, 2016

A 36-year-old man was killed when he collided with a woman driving on the wrong side of a four-lane road in West Palm Beach. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman and her ten-year-old daughter were transported to an area hospital with serious injuries. The investigation into this wrong-way crash is ongoing, but it is believed that both drivers were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Impairment is considered a factor in the woman’s actions, especially due to the fact that the man was in the inner-most lane when he struck the woman’s vehicle.

The family of the deceased may be entitled to rights under Florida law to hold the wrong-way driver accountable. An experienced wrongful death attorney could make the claim that the woman acted with negligence when she drove on the wrong side of the road, resulting in the collision. Compensation for damages could include funeral costs, lost wages, grief counseling, or pain and suffering.

Wrongful deaths resulting from an auto accident have the potential to exhaust all of your financial resources. Some lawsuits take months, even years to resolve. The bills won’t stop coming in just because the family is in a pending lawsuit. To stay financially afloat, auto accident litigation funding is a good option. In fact, it might be the only option to avoid an early settlement for less than full case value.

Litigation funding is a cash advance that, hopefully, permits victims to deal with critical expenses while waiting to achieve appropriate justice. Victims are eligible for funding once they have attorney representation. It cost nothing to apply and if approved, the money can arrive within 24 – 48 hours.

The first step is to complete a one-page application. Next, we will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for applicable case documentation. Funding is based solely on the strength of the lawsuit; there are no credit checks or employment verification. There are no monthly payments; repayment is made once the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

Two Lawsuits Settle, One Pending After Faulty Bridgestone Tires Caused Fatal 2014 Crash

June 14, 2016

For auto accident victims, the road to financial freedom maybe begin with litigation funding.

James Ednie and his longtime partner, Tanya Gooden, and Gooden’s adult special needs son, Cameron, died in November 2014 after an out-of-control Federal Express (FedEx) tractor-trailer with pup trailer struck their Dodge Caravan head on. Ednie and Gooden died at the scene. Gooden’s son was seated in his wheelchair in the backseat area of the minivan at the time of the collision. He was flown to a medical facility in Denver, where he died the next morning. The couple left behind their 11-year-old daughter, Jaide, who was not with them at the time of the crash. The FedEx driver was injured. An investigation revealed that the westbound tractor’s left front tire failed, sending the vehicle careening through the median.

Family members representing Ednie, Gooden and her son filed lawsuits against Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC and FedEx Ground Package Systems Inc. alleging that the tractor’s left front tire failed, sending the vehicle careening through the median before striking the van head-on. According to the lawsuits, Bridgestone’s tire was in a defective and dangerous condition at the time it was sold to FedEx. Additionally, FedEx was negligent because it knew or should have known the tire was faulty and replaced it after the passenger side tire on the same tractor failed two months prior to the collision. Gooden’s lawsuits adds that the decision “was reckless, willful and wanton, demonstrated and indifference to the safety of the motoring public.”

Last month, both plaintiffs settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. Still pending is a personal injury lawsuit filed by the truck driver. His complaint names Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC and Commercial Tire Inc. as defendants. The lawsuit says Bridgestone’s tire “was in a defective, dangerous condition at the time of its sale” and was “unreasonably dangerous,” and Commercial Tire Inc. sold the two allegedly faulty Bridgestone tires to FedEx and installed them in August 2014.

The driver was employed by CLR Transportation and contracted to drive a FedEx tractor with two trailers, according to his complaint. The truck driver alleges he “has suffered emotional stress, shock, trauma and injury to his emotional well-being.” He is seeking compensation in excess of $75,000 to cover medical expenses and loss of income, as well as the physical pain and suffering and emotional distress. His case is set for trial in March 2017.

Although the wrongful death cases have settled, they would have been viable cases for litigation funding. If the plaintiffs have not received compensation to date, they could seek post-settlement litigation funding. In the case of the tractor trailer driver, he may be eligible for pre-settlement litigation funding.

One way to minimize their financial impact is to seek a lawsuit cash advance from Litigation Funding Corporation. Litigation funding is a no-risk cash advance available to plaintiffs in a pending lawsuit or when a case has settled, but the settlement has yet to be disbursed. Funding is based solely on the merits of the case; personal valuables and credit history are not at risk. If approved for funding we can direct deposit or wire a check within 48 hours. There are no monthly payments; we are repaid once the case successfully settles. If the case does not win, there is no personal liability to pay us back.

If you find yourself in a pending personal injury lawsuit, or have filed a wrongful death claim for the loss of a loved one, and are in need financial support until your case settles, begin your road to financial freedom by calling Litigation Funding Corporation or completing our online funding application.

Family Filed Lawsuit over Death of Woman in a Florida Nursing Home

June 9, 2016

When considering a nursing home facility for your loved one, it goes without saying that you want to make sure he/she will be well-cared for and safe. Sadly, negligence and abuse in nursing homes is all too common resulting in serious injuries or death. When negligence occurs, a lawsuit may be an appropriate way for the family to seek justice and be compensated for their loss.

The family of an elderly woman who died in January 2015, is suing the nursing home entrusted with her care.

According to the lawsuit, a nursing assistant was changing the bed sheets with the bedrails pulled down when the patient fell off the bed. The suit alleges the woman was seriously injured, yet nursing home workers failed to provide proper medical attention and did not notify the woman’s family for three hours. The lawsuit also contends that despite the patient being a large woman, requiring two nursing assistants to move her, only one assistant was present at the time of the fall.

The patient’s daughter claims that despite her mother being totally unconscious and non-responsive, workers cleaned her up and put her back in bed. It wasn’t until family took the woman to the hospital that they learned she was not only covered in bruises on her head and shoulders, but she also suffered a broken hip. The woman died a month later.

According to the family’s attorney, there was a video camera outside the woman’s door, but the video recording has been deleted.

“We know that there was a video in the hallway that showed the certified nursing assistant and the nurse going in and out of the room and their state of mind,” said attorney Steve Watrel. “I’ve learned in the discovery process so far that the facility has destroyed that videotape, and we believe it’s an effort to hide what happened and hide who’s accountable.”

Nursing home lawsuits usually take years before a settlement is reached. With bills continuously adding up, the ability to wait for a fair settlement may not be an option without the help of Litigation Funding Corporation.

With litigation funding, plaintiffs can pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, cover daily household expenses, or any purchase needed. There are no restrictions on how the lawsuit cash advance is used. 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. There are no monthly payments; we are repaid once the case settles. The money is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning it does not have to be repaid in the event of a lost case. Once the determination has been made to provide funding, cash can be made available in as little as 24-hours.

Are you currently in a pending nursing home lawsuit, but feeling the pressure to settle? Acquiring litigation funding can be the monetary flexibility needed to hold out for a greater settlement.
