Deadliest Bus Crash in Decades Kills Thirteen

December 26, 2016

A tour bus crash was one of the deadliest in decades and claimed the lives of 13 people.

A wrongful death lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against a well-known bus company and the estate of the deceased bus driver. The suit alleges the driver failed to apply his brakes to avoid the crash, the bus was not properly maintained, and the driver was speeding just prior to the accident.

More than 45 people were riding the tour bus the day of the accident when the bus collided with an 18-wheeler on I-10 near Palm Springs. The bus was heading back from the Red Earth Casino.

According to the investigation of the wreck, launched by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the bus was not in compliance with vehicle safety standards – two of eight tires did not have sufficient tread to be considered safe. The NTSB investigation was not the only one to try to find out what happened. Attorneys for the families filing lawsuits also began independent investigations in the hopes to expose an allegedly poorly regulated industry.

The families that filed wrongful death lawsuits would likely be facing financial difficulties to pay for funeral and burial expenses. They would need a source of funding to help carry them through until a settlement or trial of their case. A lawsuit cash advance is a solution for plaintiffs.

What is a lawsuit cash advance? It is an advance of funds to a qualified plaintiff to pay an attorney and help settle other pressing bills and expenses. This kind of funding is also referred to as litigation funding.

Applying for pre-settlement funding is easy. The only requirement is having an attorney for representation. Litigation funding may be received within 24 to 48 hours of being approved.

See Your Auto Accident Lawsuit Through to the End with a No-Risk Lawsuit Cash Advance

December 23, 2016

When you have been involved in an auto accident, especially one that results in serious injuries, it is important to understand your rights and the process of seeking compensation. Many victims are under the pretense that when filing a claim the insurance company will be on their side. Unfortunately, the opposite is true – the insurance adjuster number one interest is paying the least mount as possible in claims. They will deny, delay, and defend the claim as long as possible. They know that if they hold out long enough, you may become financially desperate to settle for less than full case value.

An auto accident attorney can significantly improve the chances of your claim resolving successfully. However, even with the help of an attorney, many auto accident claims don’t settle quickly. Being injured is bad enough, but when you are unable to work, life becomes much harder. As bills begin to pile up and you start feeling pressure to settle, what other options do you have?

At Litigation Funding Corporation, we provide financial assistance to plaintiffs in need of short-term financial relief. Our litigation funding services are a fast cash lifeline to give you and your attorney all the time necessary to achieve the best settlement results.

A lawsuit cash advance can be used for anything you need. While there are not restrictions, most victims use the money to pay the mortgage/rent, medical expenses, auto payments, utility bills, and daily household needs such as groceries. The best part of obtaining litigation funding is that repayment is only made if you settle or win your lawsuit. If the case is lost, you are under no obligation to repay the cash advance.

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident you may have a right to financial compensation. Begin by scheduling a free case consultation with an experienced attorney to ensure your rights are protected and you receive fair and just compensation that you are entitled. Once you have retained an attorney, if you need financial assistance to see your case through to the end, contact Litigation Funding Corporation at 1-866-LIT-FUND for a free, no obligation consultation with one of our experienced lawsuit funding specialists.

Family Accuses Chicago Hospital of Negligence Resulting in Death

December 21, 2016

A deceased man’s family has filed a wrongful death claim against a Chicago hospital, alleging negligence in medical care.

The suit alleges that the hospital failed to properly diagnose and treat a stroke the man suffered in December 2014, which allegedly resulted in respiratory failure, aspiration pneumonia and cardiac arrest a month later. The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs.

Moving forward after the death of a loved one is emotionally and often times, financially draining especially as a result of medical negligence. Filing, fighting, and winning a medical malpractice case is a complex process that can take a long time before it goes to court and/or culminates in a settlement or award. No one has limitless financial strength; victims may be living paycheck to paycheck or drowning in medical expenses, funeral expenses, and other financial obligations.

Litigation funding allows plaintiffs the ability to wait for a fair settlement without the financial pressure to settle too early for too little. A lawsuit cash advance is provided on a non-recourse basis which means that if the plaintiff loses the case, repayment of the advance is mull and void. We only get paid back when and if a successful recovery on the case is made.

Litigation Funding Corporation can’t bring back your loved one but, we can help put an end to your financial worries while you wait for your lawsuit to settle. The process for obtaining funding is as simple as filling out an online application or calling Litigation Funding Corporation toll-free at 1.866.LIT.FUND. Once we receive your application and case documentation, our underwriters will evaluate the case and if approved, provided funding within 24 – 48 hours. We require no credit checks or employment verifications, and there are no monthly payments. Call us today to learn more.

Litigation Funding Corporation Provides Means for Auto Accident Victims to Decline a Low Settlement Offer

December 20, 2016

Auto accidents are the number one cause of personal injuries in the U.S., causing both physical and financial strain to a victim and his/her family. Yet, insurance companies, those that happily take policyholder’s premiums, will use deny, delay, and defend tactics in hopes that the victim will accept a low settlement offer. Victims may consider filing a personal injury lawsuit. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, plaintiffs will, in most circumstances, substantially increase the likelihood of success and the amount recoverable in the case. However, the legal process can be long and complex. A settlement won’t be received until the litigation process is completed, which could take months or years. In the meantime, plaintiffs still have to pay bills and meet their financial obligations. This will only add more financial stress. For those living paycheck to paycheck, any offer may be tempting to accept, but pre-settlement litigation funding is usually a better option.

To determine if litigation funding is right for you, consider these questions.
• Are you worried about financial issues resulting from your accident and injuries?
• Are you facing eviction, foreclosure, repossession of your vehicle?
• Are you unable to put food on the table, pay medical expenses or other necessities of life?
• Are you seriously considering settling your valuable case for any amount?

If you answered yes to most or all of these questions, you should investigate litigation funding.

The purpose of litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance, is to help plaintiffs with unexpected expenses as a result of an auto accident, as well as cover monthly household expenses. Unlike bank loans, litigation funding requires no application fee, no monthly payments, no credit check, and no employment verification. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles. Best of all, it is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning that should you lose your case, the cash advance is waived in its entirety; repayment is completely null and void.

If you are in need of financial assistance during a pending auto accident claim, complete our online application or call our office at 1.866.LIT.FUND. Once received, we will request case documentation from your attorney and make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. It really is that simple!

Elderly Man Files Premise Liability Lawsuit Against Wal-Mart

December 14, 2016

A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, inside or outside. It could be at the mall, grocery store, restaurant, or even someone’s home. It could be a sidewalk, parking lot, or city road. Wherever or however it takes place, slip and fall accidents can result in broken bones, brain injuries and paralysis. Because the burden of proof in these cases is difficult to overcome, premise liability claims typically require the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney. However, the wheels of justice turn very slowly and compensation sought could be months, even years away. A seriously injured or disabled person is at a significant disadvantage against a powerful, well-financed insurance company. Pre-settlement litigation funding is designed to provide an emergency financial lifeline.

An 88-year-old man has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart alleging failure to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition led to his injuries. The plaintiff alleges the superstore negligently chose not to repair the cart corral and failed to provide any warning about the danger of using it.

According to the complaint, on May 17, after returning a shopping cart to the cart corral, the man caught his foot on a disconnected metal ground plate and fell, striking his head on the ground and sustaining serious injuries. The lawsuit states the elderly man will continue to experience medical expenses, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life as a result.

The plaintiff seeks trial by jury and judgment for all damages he has sustained.

Litigation Funding Corporation is a reputable litigation funding company, with over 17 years’ experience helping personal injury plaintiffs with short-term financial needs. After filing a lawsuit, as long as the plaintiff has serious injuries and a strong case, we can often put cash in hand within 24 – 48 hours. Then, we simply wait until the case settles to be repaid, no matter how long it takes.

Litigation funding allows plaintiffs to pay the necessary bills – mortgage/rent, car payments, medical expenses, utilities, groceries, and other important financial obligations. This lawsuit cash advance is made against the future proceeds of the case and not valuable assets.

Litigation funding is similar to a loan, but better! There are no credit checks or employment verifications required to obtain funding and there are no monthly payments. Funding is approved solely on the strength of the case. We are repaid from the proceeds of the settlement, but if it is lost, we completely waive repayment of the cash advance – no principal, no interest, nothing!

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed in Electrocution Case

A widow of an electrocuted welder filed a wrongful death lawsuit, on the second-year anniversary of death.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for pain and suffering sustained by the man prior to his death and compensation for his family and next of kin who suffered financial and emotional damages as a result of his sudden death. It is further alleged that the man believed the electrical line, which caused his death, had been de-energized. In addition the tool used to test for a live line was roughly 15 years old and should have been taken out of service after two years as required.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) investigated the welder’s death and the company he worked for was cited for nine alleged safety violations that contributed to his death. Eight violations were rated as serious and one categorized as a repeated offense. The company was hit was a penalty of $115,000 subsequently negotiated down to $63,250. There were also three other serious violations for failing to train electrical workers in safe workplace practices.

The widow would face a difficult time and the case may take a number of months or perhaps years to reach a settlement or go to trial. It is likely going to be difficult paying the rent or mortgage and there is very little money left over after paying for funeral and burial expenses.
