Lawsuit Filed Over Trash Truck Explosion that Severely Burns Worker

A man who suffered third-degree burns from a trash truck’s natural gas system has filed a personal injury lawsuit.

According to the claim, the plaintiff was at work, preparing to wash a trash truck, when there was a violent explosion. As a result, the man suffered third-degree burns to his face, arms, and lower extremities. The lawsuit alleges that the explosion was caused by a failure of a component part of the compressed natural gas system attached to the truck. The complaint contends that the defendants were fully aware of the deficiency in the product prior to the explosion, yet failed to properly design, manufacture, maintain, inspect, or replace the hose that permitted the fugitive gas to escape. Defendants also failed to warn those using the product of the danger posed, according to the lawsuit. The plaintiff seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

The plaintiff’s severe injuries are likely to have a substantial impact on his financial situation. His ability to earn a living has, likely, been substantially impaired. The lawsuit will most likely take months, possibly years, to resolve.

How does he support himself and his family while waiting for a resolution? If he doesn’t have substantial savings or family that can help financially, litigation funding could be the perfect strategic solution.

Litigation funding enables plaintiffs to handle all medical bills, therapy costs, medications and even required surgery, as well as their usual monthly expenses, like the mortgage/rent, tuition, car payments, and other immediate expenses. With the financial pressure removed, plaintiffs can patiently wait for a fair litigation outcome, rather than accepting an inadequate offer that a greedy insurance company is trying to squeeze them to take.

Since approval is based solely on case strength and has nothing to do with credit or employment status, the money could be available within 24-48 hours. All we need is a funding application and pertinent case documentation to determine make a funding decision. If a lawsuit cash advance is approved, a contract is signed defining the terms of the agreement including repayment from the proceeds of the settlement. That is correct, the cash advance is only repaid once the case settles. What if case resolution is not in the plaintiff’s favor? Then, repayment is completely waived.
