Auto Accident Lawsuit Has Successfully Settled, but Waiting for a Check could be Months Away

March 7, 2017

A recently settled auto accident lawsuit may have been, and still could be, a viable case for litigation funding.

The plaintiff sustained serious injuries when her vehicle was rear-ended and pushed into oncoming traffic, where it was hit head-on by another vehicle. The police investigation revealed that the crash was due to unsafe speed and driver distraction on the part of the driver who struck the plaintiff’s car from behind. The plaintiff suffered a knee injury and hematoma, post-concussion headaches, and had to undergo several months of physical therapy.

Even though this case has settled, the plaintiff may still be forced to wait even longer for the full payout of the award. The defendant may file an appeal or the insurance company may simple drag its feet in submitting the settlement check. Litigation funding could have not only helped this woman during her pending lawsuit, it could also help with her financial needs while waiting to receive the actual settlement.

Litigation funding is a cash advance provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning that in the event the case is ultimately lost, there is not obligation for the plaintiff to repay the cash advance. The money would be hers to keep, no strings attached. Funding decisions can be made as quickly as 24 hours from the time Litigation Funding Corporation receives an application because we provide funding base on case strength alone. Personal credit and employment status are never considered. Additionally, there are absolutely zero hidden costs or upfront expenses. The money can be used right away for whatever the plaintiff wishes – living expenses, mortgage or car payments, or even to avoid bankruptcy.

Being involved in an auto accident can be devastating and life-changing, but your financial situation doesn’t have to leave you with mounting bills or facing foreclosure. If you are in need of a financial lifeline until your case settles and the settlement received, consider litigation funding. Call us toll-free at 1-866-548-3863 or complete our online form.

Lawsuit Alleges Medication Caused Kidney Damage

March 6, 2017

Over the years, hundreds of medications have been prescribed to treat illness, only to cause serious or life-threatening side effects. Despite the dangers, some pharmaceutical companies continue to sell their medications, even hiding information to get FDA approval. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of adverse side effects due to negligence or failure to warn by a drug manufacturer, lawsuit funding may give you financial stability during a pending lawsuit.

A California woman alleges medication prescribed to treat heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease caused kidney damage.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs allege that in 2016, the woman suffered physical injuries, including damages to her kidney, due to taking Prilosec. The woman alleges that as a result she required a kidney transplant because of proton pump inhibitor use. The plaintiffs allege that The Procter & Gamble Co., Astrazeneca Pharmaceuticals LP and Does 1 to 50 were negligent for failing to provide appropriate warnings against the continued use of the drug and failing to appropriately warn the woman’s health care providers about the side effects and risks.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages up to $5 million.

Litigation Funding Corporation understands that the litigation process from a defective drug lawsuit can take years to settle, as it is very difficult to compete with a major pharmaceutical company that is can afford to wait. Victims of injury from dangerous drugs may already be experiencing financial distress, leaving them at risk for bankruptcy or foreclosure.

Nebraska Man Charged with Manslaughter Following Fatal Drunk Driving Crash

March 3, 2017

A single-vehicle crash in central Nebraska claimed the life of two young men, after a heavy-duty pick-up truck left the roadway, ran into a ditch, and rolled at least one full rotation before coming to a rest. Two passengers were ejected; they were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and three other passengers were taken treated for injuries at a nearby hospital. Multiple beer cans allegedly were recovered from the accident scene.

Police reports state the driver had a blood alcohol level of .09; the legal limit to drive in Nebraska is .08. He was charged with two counts of felony manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol. He could face up to 40 years in prison. He could also face wrongful death lawsuits.

An experienced auto accident attorney can help protect the rights of the victims and help them receive compensation for their loss. Even with the help of an experienced attorney, a lawsuit can drag on as the insurance company for the negligent driver will most likely deny fault and delay the litigation process. For the victim’s family, life won’t wait for a lawsuit to settle nor should they be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar because of pressing financial needs. When finances are an issue, litigation funding can be a solution.

Litigation funding is a cash advance of an expected settlement. Its main purpose is to assist plaintiffs with the likely loss of wages, mounting medical bills, funeral expenses, daily household bills, and other out-of-pocket expenses until a settlement is reached. Unlike a traditional bank loan; funding can be obtained without the need for a credit check or employment verification; the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. Funding is based strictly on case strength.

Request for funding applications can be made over the phone or online, with approvals as quickly as 24 hours. Once a contract is signed, the money is sent via overnight mail or direct deposit. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis. When the case settles, the cash advance is repaid from the case proceeds. If the plaintiff fails in achieving a settlement, repayment is completely waived.

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to a drunk driver and need financial assistance, consider litigation funding to help wage your legal battle for the best possible settlement. Contact the experienced and professional staff at Litigation Funding Corporation. We would be happy to answer all your questions and help you understand the lawsuit finance process.

Lawsuit Filed Over Trash Truck Explosion that Severely Burns Worker

March 2, 2017

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.

Litigation Funding may be an Emergency Lifeline for Customer Suing Restaurant for Parking Lot Fall

You have the reasonable expectation that you will be safe while on someone else’s property, but this is not always the case. Premise liability is an area of law that deals with injuries incurred due to the negligence of a property owner. It could be a homeowner or business establishment, such as a restaurant or grocery store.

A New Orleans woman recently filed a lawsuit alleging property owner negligence led to her injuries.
Last March the woman was walking in the restaurant parking lot when she tripped and fell on a large crack in the concrete. As a result, she required medical attention and suffered a fracture in her left humeral shaft.
According to the lawsuit, the defendant is accused of negligently failing to protect its customers, allowing a dangerous condition to exist, failing to warn of the danger, and failing to maintain the property. The plaintiff seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

When a property owner’s negligence causes harm, victims may find themselves in the middle of a premises liability lawsuit. However, the wheels of justice turn very slowly and the compensation sought could be months, even years away. A seriously injured or disabled person, one not working as a result of an accident, is at a significant disadvantage against a powerful, well-financed corporation and its insurance company. They will deliberately drag their feet to make the injury victim desperate to resolve the case. When premise liability plaintiffs are left without the financial means to pay bills and take care of their families, litigation funding can help fill the void until a fair settlement is reached.

Here’s how it works! First, the plaintiff completes a one-page request for funding application online or over the phone. There are no application or upfront fees, and there is no need to be employed or have good credit. Next, Litigation Funding Corporation will request pertinent documentation to determine case strength. If the case appears strong and winnable, we will likely approve the plaintiff for funding. Once a contract is signed, the cash advance is sent via direct deposit or wire transfer within 48 hours. There are no monthly payments; the advance is repaid only when the case settles. If the case is lost, repayment is completely waived – guaranteed!

If you are involved in a pending slip-and-fall/premises liability case and need financial assistance, litigation funding may just be the answer you are looking for and the support you desperately need. Call Litigation Funding Corporation to learn more or to get started.
