Guest Claims Hotel Concealed a Hole with Carpet, Leading to Her Fall and Injuries

November 30, 2016

Property owners have a duty to maintain and inspect their premise for problems and to warn of hazardous conditions. If they shirk these responsibilities, owners are responsible for any injuries that occur due to the properties’ hazardous conditions. Injuries sustained due to slips, falls and trips could result in physical, psychological, and financial distress. Litigation funding can ease the financial burden during a pending lawsuit and allow the slip and fall victim to stay the course and receive the compensation deserved.

A woman has filed a lawsuit against a hotel chain, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries, liability and negligence. The complaint file earlier this month alleges that the defendant used carpet to conceal a hole in the floor of their property. The plaintiff contends that she sustained physical injuries to her head, body and limbs as a result. She seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000.

The combination of loss of wages and mounting medical bills can prove financially devastating to the injured and their families, especially when a lawsuit is not quickly resolved. Property owners often deny responsibility by placing the fault on the plaintiff. This common line of defense often results in litigation that can last several years.

Litigation funding is a simple, easy way to get fast cash from your pending slip and fall lawsuit, as long as you have serious injuries and strong case. In fact, we can often put cash in your hands within 24-48. A cash advance can help pay immediate financial obligations such as mortgage/rent, medical bills, car payments, utilities, and food. Applying for funding is quick and easy; it takes less than five minutes to apply, with no credit checks or employment requirements. The money is provided against the expected future settlement; we only expect repayment when you recover damages for your injuries. If you lose your case, you owe us absolutely nothing.

Don’t wait for your premise liability case to settle. Get the cash you deserve today with the help of Litigation Funding Corporation!

Litigation Funding Provides Plaintiffs With The Freedom To Wait For The Highest Possible Settlement

November 28, 2016

When pursuing money damages in personal injury lawsuits, corporate greed can often prevent a fair settlement from being reached quickly. Insurance companies and deep pocket defendants always have significant economic advantages over injured plaintiffs; they are infamous for delaying proceedings and denying fair resolution. They are not the injured. They are not the one out of work. They can feed their families and take care of life’s necessities. Plaintiffs, on the other hand, will typically face financial hardship as the case drags on. Savings are quickly depleted, credit card debt may climb, or borrowing money can quickly jeopardize relationships with family and friends. While typically not approved, some may apply for a traditional bank loan. All these means of obtaining quick cash are risky options because the litigation process is often a long and unpredictable road to settlement or a verdict. And, sometimes the settlement is not favorable resulting in further financial setback. For plaintiffs with lost income and mounting expenses, a more viable, risk-free, option is litigation funding.

Since a financially desperate plaintiff is not a positive influence on settlement negotiations, it stands to reason that removing financial pressure to settle early, and for too little, will result in increased settlement proceeds for the plaintiff. Litigation Funding Corporation provides the freedom to wait for the highest possible settlement in the form of a lawsuit cash advance. We do this without the need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. In fact, no payment is made until the case settles. If the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived.

Plaintiffs who apply, and are approved, for litigation funding can receive the funds within 24-48 hours. Although there are no restrictions on how the money is spent, traditionally, the cash advance is used to pay immediate expenses, such as unexpected medical bills, the mortgage/rent, or daily living expenses.

If you have been injured, disabled, or lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, if the bills are piling up, and if your life has been interrupted in a way nearly impossible to recover from without significant financial help, contact Litigation Funding Corporation online or toll-free at 1-866-LITFUND. We may just be the one to bridge the financial gap until you receive the compensation you deserve.

Twenty Feet of Muck Killed 43

November 22, 2016

A landslide, in 2014, killed 43 people in rural Oso, northeast of Seattle. A $60 million settlement has been reached in the case.

The largest wrongful death lawsuit in history was just about to begin when the logging company agreed to settle for $10 million. The agreement to settle for $10 million came on the heels of an agreement with the state for $50 million.

On March 22, 2014, a massive mudslide wiped out a neighborhood in Oso. It was an enclave of about 35 single-family homes, some built in the 1960s. Survivors recalled hearing what sounded like a plane crashing outside their homes, but on checking what the noise was, discovered a towering wall of sludge bearing down on them.

Although the whole event lasted about two minutes, the landslide slammed into the neighborhood, ripping off roofs, crushing trees and homes, and burying people alive. Reports dating back to the 1950s warned that the hillside could collapse because the local river had been eroding the base of the hill. Despite this, homes continued being build in the area.

According to area residents, the logging operation above their location was allegedly responsible for the slide because the retaining wall built along the bank of the river undercut the hill exponentially increasing the danger a mudslide. Residents allege they were never warned about a potential mudslide despite the fact that a similar landslide occurred in 2006.

The survivors of the slide were left to mourn the loss of family and friends and to gather together to launch a wrongful death lawsuit.

Although that suit never made it to court, the victims were able to receive compensation. The court also assessed $789,000 in punitive damages against the state because their expert witnesses were found to be deleting emails vital to the litigation.

The state has now passed new rules relating to logging in landslide-prone areas.

The families left behind in this tragedy would have had enormous expenses, including rebuilding their homes, and funeral and burial costs. Many of the victims may have found assistance by applying for a lawsuit loan from a litigation company to help them meet their cash shortages while waiting for case resolution.

Pre-settlement funding provides plaintiffs with immediate cash they need to cover living expenses while a case is being litigated or is in settlement negotiations. Litigation Funding Corporation does not charge any up-front fees and provides risk-free funding. Should a plaintiff lose their case in court, they do not owe the litigation company money.

There is no red tape and no credit check. A plaintiff only needs to fill out an application online or call a litigation funding company. Once the process has been started, the lawsuit loan company does the rest. Approval may come, in as little as, 24 hours and a victim may receive the approved funds within 48 hours.

Litigation Funding is a Godsend When Running Out of Resources in a Pending Lawsuit

Running out of gas can put motorist and their passengers in jeopardy should the vehicle suddenly become immobilized on the roadway; drivers can end up stranded in the middle of a busy highway without the ability to move their vehicle. Being stranded in the middles of the road can result in a serious or fatal multi-car crash.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol reported that a 26-year-old man was killed after his vehicle slammed into a tractor-trailer. According to reports, the semi ran out of fuel and was stalled in the center lane of I-77 in Hunterville. The 26-year-old was traveling at 65 miles per hour when he hit the tractor-trailer. Police believe he didn’t brake and was killed on impact. An investigation is underway, but troopers suspect the man was distracted in some way; there were no skid marks prior to the point of impact.

Although it appears the young driver was distracted, running out of gas is completely avoidable and the truck driver could be held at least partially accountable for the crash. When faced with a complex accident and liability issues, it is important to consult an experienced attorney who will be able to advise the deceased man’s family of their legal rights and options. If a lawsuit is filed and the family needs financial assistance during the pending claim, Litigation Funding Corporation may be able to help. We provide a lawsuit cash advances, without consideration of credit score or employment status.

The first step would be to complete an online funding application. Then, we will work with the plaintiff’s attorney to gather necessary information to process the funding request as quickly as possible. Upon approval, funds can arrive by wire or check within 24-48 hours. While the money can be used at the client’s discretion, it typically helps pay medical expenses, funeral expenses, or important monthly obligations such as mortgage or rent payments and utility bills. This cash advance is not a “lawsuit loan” as it is often called; we are only repaid, if and when the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, the cash advance is waived in its entirety.

Financial relief during the litigation process is only a phone call away. Call Litigation Funding Corporation for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Litigation Funding For Pedestrian-Auto Accidents

November 18, 2016

When a driver hits a pedestrian, often the biggest question is: Whose fault was the accident?
Determining fault can sometimes be a complicated process. Did the driver run a red light? Was the driver speeding? Was the driver intoxicated? Did the pedestrian wander out into traffic while texting? Could either person have avoided the accident? In some cases, both the driver and the pedestrian can be negligent. For example, the pedestrian may be crossing the street illegally while the driver is traveling in excess of the posted speed limit.

Some states follow what is called a “pure contributory negligence” rule. This means that if the pedestrian contributed in the slightest bit to the accident, then he and his auto insurance company cannot recover damages from the driver and his auto insurance company. Other states follow a “comparative fault” rule. This means that a pedestrian can recover some damages even if he was partly at fault.

If you can prove that you suffered a loss and that the injury was a direct result of the driver’s negligence, you may be able to receive financial compensation for your losses. But, insurance companies will typically try to reach a quick settlement and limit recovery to the lowest possible amount, before you retain an attorney. Avoid the trap of agreeing to settle too early for too little. Always consult with an attorney first; there may be future medical expenses, lost wages, and additional damages that you do not know about or did not consider.

Once you file a lawsuit, how will you pay your bills while you wait for your settlement? It’s easy, with our pedestrian accident litigation funding. Litigation funding allows you to get the cash you need to pay your bills and get on with your life while your attorney seeks the maximum settlement. The application takes less than five minutes to complete and funding can be available within 24 – 48 hours after we received the necessary documentation to determine the merits of the case. There are no application fees, credit checks, employment history verifications, or monthly payments.

Ask your attorney for advice on whether pedestrian lawsuit funding would be the right move for your situation. Then, call Litigation Funding Corporation and see how we can help you meet your financial obligations as you wait for your case to settle.

Lawsuits Pending Against Trucker and Trucking Companies In Chain-Reaction Crash That Killed Four

November 17, 2016

An Indiana truck driver charged in a 2014 crash that killed five people pleaded guilty to five counts of reckless homicide and one count of falsifying his driving log. He faces six to 28 years in prison, but prosecutors have agreed to seek no more than a 15-year sentence.

On July 21, 2014, the truck driver entered a construction zone where traffic had slowed to 3 – 5 miles per hour. The trucker, however, had set his cruise control and was driving 65 mph when he entered the area, causing a chain-reaction crash that killed four people, including an 11-year-old girl. Four others (a woman and her three teens) were hospitalized with injuries.

Two lawsuits filed by families of the victims are pending in federal court. The lawsuits name the truck driver as well as Steel Warehouse, the company for which the trucker was hauling freight, and Eagle Transport, the company which leased him the semitrailer he was driving. The suits allege that the trucker was speeding through a construction zone, failed to keep a proper lookout for slowing or stopped vehicles, failed to slow down when a special hazard existed and had a physical condition — complete loss of vision in his right eye due to a 1984 injury — that limited his ability to drive safely. The plaintiffs also allege that he altered his driving log to make it appear as if he started work later in the day than he actually did. According to investigators, the truck driver began his workday at 2:30 a.m. when he picked up a load of steel at a warehouse in South Bend, Ind. His log book, however, showed he started at 6:15 a.m. Under federal law, commercial truck drivers are limited to working 14 hours a day, including a maximum of 11 behind the wheel. A hearing date is set for December 6.

Litigation Funding Corporation understands how difficult the litigation process and how a financial strain during times like this not only seriously impacts one’s life, but also a case. Litigation funding gives plaintiffs leverage against the insurance company and prevents them from being forced to take inadequate offers. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than full case value.

Funding decisions are based on the strength of the case, not credit or work history. Once an application is completed and approved, the lawsuit cash advance can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Our only requirement is that the plaintiff is represented by an attorney and that the case has merit. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, so nothing is paid back until the case is settled. If, for some reason, our client loses, the repayment is completely waived.

If you are in need of a cash flow solution during a pending litigation, litigation funding may be a viable option to removing the financial pressure and giving your attorney the time needed to fully pursue your case. Contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation or complete our online application; it takes less than 5 minutes.

November 14, 2016

The litigation process is often quite complex. Plaintiffs wait years for a settlement, and often financial relief.

Nine-Year-Old Girl Killed in DUI Crash

November 10, 2016

A 25-year-old Chicago man was recently charged with multiple felonies including drunk driving after causing an accident which killed a young girl.

The alleged negligent driver was subsequently charged with leaving the scene of the accident, two counts of drunk driving, and four counts of aggravated drunk driving. There is a possibility his charges are to be upgraded.

The 9-year-old girl was in a minivan, driven by her mother. Two other girls, ages 10 and 12, friends of the 9-year-old, were also in the vehicle at the time of the accident. The mother was driving them home after attending a church event.

Eye witnesses recounted seeing the minivan heading north while the second vehicle involved in the crash, a Cadillac Deville, was heading south. By all reports the Cadillac was drifting in and out of the oncoming lanes. Just prior to the crash the minivan driver made a hard turn to the left to avoid a collision. However, the defensive maneuver was not successful and the Cadillac hit the passenger’s side of the minivan. The minivan continued on until it struck a building.

The Cadillac driver was seen fleeing the area. Police subsequently caught the individual later and determined he was under the influence of alcohol. The family of the young girl may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

The loss of a loved one brings with it extra expenses for the funeral and burial. The young girl’s family might wish to research litigation funding to aid their situation. To apply for a lawsuit loan, the plaintiffs would need to first hire an attorney. Once a lawyer of record is retained, the family may apply for pre-settlement funding.

When plaintiffs are cash strapped, applying for a lawsuit loan helps them financially to deal with monthly bills and other obligations.

Latest Lawsuit Filed In Blood Thinner Wrongful Death

Each day we open the paper or turn on the computer and there is another story about an FDA approved drug that causes serious injuries or death.

The most disturbing news, aside from the risks of taking various drugs, is that most Americans put their trust in physicians and the drugs they prescribe to heal them. They expect these medications to be safe and make them feel better. Unfortunately, ‘feeling better’ on a temporary basis is not a fair trade against the devastating side effects of some of these drugs.

As Portola Pharmaceuticals rushes to gain approval of their drug which they say will help stop internal bleeding in patients taking the popular class of blood thinners which includes Xarelto and Eliquis, patients continue to suffer severe side effects and even wrongful death.

A recent claim was filed by a man who contends that about two months after his wife was given Eliquis to treat atrial fibrillation, she developed gastrointestinal bleeding. Due to the lack of an Eliquis antidote, doctors were unable to stop her internal bleeding, and she ultimately died. The lawsuit seeks to hold Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer responsible for the woman’s death. The plaintiff claims that Bristol-Myer Squibb and Pfizer neglected to adequately research all potential Eliquis side effects before the drug was released and that they deceived doctors and consumers about Eliquis bleeding risks.

Waiting for a fair and equitable settlement or a jury trial in hard fought litigation like this will likely take years. In the meantime, the plaintiff will still need to pay his ordinary bills and expenses, as well as funeral expenses and any outstanding medical bills. During this time, many plaintiffs find it advantageous to seek out wrongful death litigation funding to remove the pressure to settle early and inexpensively and allow their attorney the time he/she needs to get the fairest possible result.

Litigation funding is better described as a non-recourse cash advance; it does not need to be repaid if the case is unsuccessful. The application is free, and there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Funding is based strictly on the merits of the case. If you suffered or lost a loved one from internal bleeding after using a blood thinner such as Eliquis, you could be entitled to compensation for damages. It is important to consult an experienced attorney to understand your rights. Once the case is filed, Litigation Funding Corporation would be happy to review your case to determine if you are eligible for a lawsuit cash advance.

Litigation Funding Provided Valuable Financial Assistance In Wrongful Death Claims

November 8, 2016

Wrongful death can happen for many reasons? Auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, product liability, medical malpractice and workplace fatalities.

There are no words to describe the loss of a loved one, especially a sudden, unexpected loss caused by the actions or negligence of someone else. When a wrongful death occurs, the victim’s family has the right to file a lawsuit. However, compensation is not automatic; wrongful death lawsuits are usually long and drawn-out, taking months, even years, for lawsuits to resolve. Beyond the terrible emotional toll a wrongful death has on those left behind, it can also create significant financial hardships, especially if the victim was the family’s bread winner.

Insurance companies put their own financial interests first; they make every attempt to deny, delay, and defend lawsuits and claims. These companies have financial staying power; they have the ability to use a plaintiff’s desperation to force a settlement, often too soon for too little compensation. And, if the plaintiff decides to continue the litigation and wins the case, the insurance company almost always appeals the verdict, dragging the case out even longer.

Strategic litigation funding can help combat this strategy. If you are a plaintiff and need short-term cash to pay medical expenses, funeral or burial expenses, or to handle monthly bills such as mortgage payments, car payments and household expenses, you can leverage your expected settlement in the form of litigation funding.

A lawsuit cash advance is easy to apply for, requires no credit check or employment history, no upfront fees or costs, and no monthly payment need to be made. Most importantly, the money is provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning if the case is lost the repayment is completely waived. Once an applicant is approved, the money is sent, by check or wire, within 24 – 48 hours.

The loss of a loved one is devastating enough; the litigation process can result in added physical and emotional stress. Don’t let financial hardship add to an already stressful situation. As long as you have pending lawsuit and attorney representation, you are eligible for funding. Litigation Funding Corporation will work fast to approve your application because we know time is of the essence. Contact us today to learn more or to apply for immediate financial relief.
