Two Spectators Killed after ATV Competition Accident in Alabama

April 28, 2017

Those who host a public event need to understand that they have the responsibility for the safety of their guests. If careless, negligent and reckless acts of the defendant results in an injury or death of a guest, the victim has the right to be compensated for under a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

Two spectators died after an ATV accident at an off-highway vehicle park event in Bremen Alabama.
A 34-year-old male died and the scene and a 22-year-old female was pronounced dead at the hospital after being struck by an ATV that flipped, according to reports. Three other people suffered injuries.

While no other specific details about the accident have been confirmed, witnesses at the scene said that the ATV was in a competition at the park when it ascended a hill before the drive lost control and flipped into spectators.
An investigation is under way.

When someone has been seriously injured or lost a loved one in an ATV accident, they may have the right to seek compensation for their injuries or loss. A lawsuit could potentially lay out a litany of issues including improper placement of spectators, a poorly designed “track”, a defective ATV, and/or an inexperienced driver. While Lawsuit Financial cannot provide legal consultation for ATV accidents, once a lawsuit has been filed by an experienced attorney, we can assist plaintiffs in securing lawsuit funding until the case settles.

Lawsuit funding is a transaction where a plaintiff sells a portion of the proceeds of the settlement in exchange for immediate cash. The advance can be used anyway the client wishes, but it meant to cover mortgage payments, car payments, funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses, and ongoing daily living expenses. This is a non-recourse cash advance, meaning that it is only repaid when the case successfully settles. If the case fails, the plaintiff keeps the money, free of charge.

A lawsuit cash advance is a perfect solution for plaintiffs who are unable to secure a traditional bank loan, obtain funds from relatives, or have salable assets. These legal finance transactions are based on the strength of the case; credit and employment status do not matter. Our online application takes less than 5 minutes to complete. Funding can often be available in less than 48 hours after receipt of a completed application.

If you are experiencing financial hardship as a result of an ATV accident, don’t let the financial stress of pursuing compensation through the legal system force you to accept an early settlement offer. A lawsuit cash advance from Litigation Funding Corporation may give you the financial staying power to endure the legal process and obtain a larger award.

April 27, 2017

A wrongful death lawsuit alleges medical negligence cause the death of a newborn.

The lawsuit stems from the 2016 death of a newborn baby. The suit alleges that a doctor failed to promptly take appropriate action when a fast-growing cyst was detected in during a pre-birth ultrasound.

The baby underwent bowel surgery after birth, but was only two days old when she died. The lawsuit says the baby would have survived if the Nebraska doctor had ordered an immediate evaluation of the growth in her bowel and had sent her for treatment before she was given any food.

To meet pressing financial obligations during the pending lawsuit, the family may wish to apply for litigation funding. Unlike a traditional bank loan, this type of cash advance can be provided without obstacles or risks.

Litigation funding is based solely on case strength, not credit or employment status.

Woman Sues Pharmacy after Receiving Incorrect Dosage of Prescription

April 25, 2017

As patients, we place a great deal of trust in our pharmacies to ensure that our prescriptions are filled correctly. We know the pharmacist or technician reads the doctor’s prescription, pulls the medication off the shelf, counts out the pills, puts them in a vial, and puts on a label with instructions. That all seems easy, but pharmacy errors occur far more often than one may think. When a medication error results in serious injury of death, the victim or a loved one can seek legal recourse for damages.

A Chicago woman filed a lawsuit two years after a pharmacy allegedly incorrectly filled her prescription and failed to check to make sure she was receiving the proper dosage of her medication.

The plaintiff claims that in April 2015, a local pharmacy filled her prescription with a 100 mg dosage instead of the 10 mg that she was prescribed by her doctor. As a result, the woman said she sustained severe and permanent injury, resulting in substantial medical care.

The plaintiff seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

Oftentimes, there is a significant gap between the filing a lawsuit and its resolution or trial. In the meantime, the plaintiff still needs to pay the bills. When faced with a mountain of medical expenses and/or the inability to return to work, a plaintiff may seek litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a cash advance to help with various expenses, whether those directly the result of the injury or daily living expenses. The money is not provided against an asset; rather, it is given against the potential settlement of the case. This means that funding decisions are made without the need for a credit check or employment verification. At Litigation Funding Corporation, we only care about the strength of the case.

If you believe you have been the victim of a prescription error, you should contact a personal injury attorney who can fully investigate your claim and determine your legal rights. Once the case is filed, contact Litigation Funding Corporation to determine if we can assist with your financial burdens while your lawyer seeks appropriate justice.

Woman with Dementia Dies After Auto Accident Allegedly Caused by Care Attendant

April 24, 2017

A 96-year-old woman with dementia died as a result of her injuries in a car accident. The woman was thrown from her wheelchair while being driven in a van belonging to an elderly care facility.

The woman, a retired teacher, was allegedly catapulted out of her wheelchair while riding in a van operated by an employee of an elder care company. Although the elderly woman was eventually taken to the hospital, she died four months later as a result of the injuries she sustained in the April 2014 accident.

The accident was allegedly caused when the van’s driver suddenly applied the brakes, causing the elderly woman to be thrown from the back of the van into the dashboard. As a result the woman sustained internal injuries and multiple broken bones.

According the eyewitnesses, the van’s driver did not call an ambulance but instead pulled into a parking lot and asked a trucker to help her lift the injured woman back into her wheelchair. The trucker and several others present in the parking lot strongly urged the young woman to call 911, but she refused to do so. Instead she took the woman back to her home and did not mentioning the accident to her family.

The elderly woman’s daughter and son filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the van’s 25-year-old driver alleging she caused serious injuries by not properly and safely strapping her passenger in prior to driving. The young driver was indicted by a grand jury for first-degree felony injury to an elderly person.

Court documents indicated that the driver failed to seek adequate medical treatment for her passenger after the accident. Furthermore, the driver’s employer did not report the incident as required by federal regulations and allegedly shredded paperwork indicating the van’s driver worked for them.

In filing a wrongful death lawsuit, the family may face several years of litigation before a verdict or settlement is reached, leaving them with extra expenses, including funeral and burial costs. If the family did not have much in terms of life insurance, or had no insurance or other alternative sources of funding, they may be eligible for a “lawsuit loan.”

The main objective in financing a lawsuit is easing the financial load on cash strapped plaintiffs and allowing them to decline an early settlement offer from a rapacious insurance company. Pre-settlement funding also demonstrates to the plaintiff that they are likely to receive the compensation they are hoping to obtain. Litigation funding may be the right financial lifeline at the right time.

Couple Alleges Urgent Care Facility Breached Standard of Care

April 21, 2017

Medical malpractice covers many different forms of improper treatment by medical professionals. It can be the result of a failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis, failure to provide adequate care, misreading lab results, surgical errors or wrong site surgery, improper medication or dosage, and failure to recognize symptoms. If you believe that you or a family member may have been a victim of medical malpractice resulting in serious injury or death, you may have the legal right to hold the responsible parties legally accountable for their negligence and seek monetary compensation. It’s important to consult an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.

Due to the complexity of medical malpractice cases, they can take months, even years to settle. If the victim is seriously hurt, they may not be able to return to work. If the medical negligence resulted in death, the patient may have been the primary breadwinner. With limited or no cash flow, plaintiffs usually will have a hard time remaining financially stable; even daily household expenses become a challenge. This is when litigation funding can be an asset.

A couple is seeking damages after the husband was allegedly not diagnosed with atrial fibrillation in a reasonable amount of time.

A week later, the plaintiff was hospitalized in intensive care for three days, and was in atrial fibrillation for over 200 hours.

Elderly Virginia Woman Died in a Three Vehicle Hit-and-Run Crash

April 20, 2017

A hit-and-run driver has been arrested for a car crash that killed an 81-year-old woman Virginia woman.

According to Virginia State Police, the woman was traveling westbound in a 1996 Ford Ranger when a 2015 Chrysler 300 traveling eastbound veered into the westbound traffic and sideswiped the Ranger, as well as a 1998 Lincoln Town Car. The Town Car spun out of control and came to a rest in the roadway. The driver of the Chrysler drove into a ditch and then fled on foot. The elderly woman was taken to an area hospital where she later died as a result of her injuries.

The negligent driver admitted himself to the hospital the next morning with serious injuries. Police later learned that he was the driver that caused the crash, and had signed for the Chrysler, a rental car. The investigation is still ongoing. There have been no reports as to whether the driver was distracted, driving under the influence, or what may have led him to veer into the westbound lane.

The last thing on anyone’s mind after a tragic auto accident, in which you lose a loved one, would be to file a lawsuit. However, a wrongful death lawsuit is usually the only way for a family to begin recovering from their losses physically, economically, and financially.

Plaintiffs should rely on an experienced auto accident attorney who can help guide them through an often lengthy and complicated litigation process. An experienced auto accident attorney can help protect the rights of the victims and help them receive compensation for their loss.

Arizona Veteran Battling Cancer Files Medical Negligence Lawsuit

April 17, 2017

An Arizona veteran is suing the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and his local VA medical center for medical negligence.

Documents filed in court indicate that the veteran served 18 years in the U.S. Army. The veteran was honorably discharged from the Army in 2007. He subsequently developed health issues and was unable to access medical care until December 2011.

For more than a year, the man tried to access medical care, but was repeatedly denied. He is now dying of prostate cancer. He was seen by a nurse practitioner who indicated he had an abnormality in his prostate. No further testing, referral to a specialist or other follow-up was ordered. Allegedly the veteran was told there was nothing he could or should do about the abnormal exam and that he was not to worry about it.

It was not until December 2011 that the veteran was able to obtain an appointment with the doctor. By this time, the man was told that he was terminal and that he needed to seek care in a hospice. The veteran opted to see a private doctor and had surgery that left him with serious problems and various permanent injuries. The lawsuit alleges none of these things would have happened had the VA performed medical care according to its mandate in a timely and professional manner.

Lawsuits such as this take a long time to be resolved. Plaintiffs still have bills that need to be paid, but finances may be tight. When finances are an issue, litigation funding, also referred to as a “lawsuit loan,” may be the solution.

Pre-settlement funding is a cash advance of the amount expected of the settlement when the case is resolved. Its primary purpose is helping plaintiffs with loss of wages, exorbitant medical bills, monthly household expenses and other out-of-pocket bills. Litigation funding is not a bank loan and may be obtained without verifying employment or running a credit check. The collateral used when applying for a “lawsuit loan” is the pending lawsuit itself.

Litigation funding is a valuable and viable alternative for cash strapped plaintiffs needing funds until their case has been resolved.

Litigation Funding Helps Bridge the Financial Gap Between Filing Suit and Settlement

April 13, 2017

Have you or a loved one been seriously injured in auto accident due to no fault of your own? Are you suing for damages and have attorney representation? If so, auto accident lawsuit funding may be able to help with your finances while your case is pending.

Here is a case example:
A couple was injured in an auto accident in 2014 when a distracted driver rear-ended their vehicle while they were waiting at a traffic light. Due to injuries sustained, the man was unable to return to work for nearly two years. His wife was a stay-at-home mom who was forced to take a part-time job to help pay the bills, but that was still not enough. Three years after the crash, the couple was able to realize a fair settlement, but not before their savings were depleted. In another month, they would have lost their home.

Careless or reckless drivers cause accidents every day, often due to a distracted driver. In a case like this, securing litigation funding could help a plaintiff alleviate some of the financial strain.

Lawsuit funding differs from traditional loans in that there are no payments made until a judgment is rendered or settlement reached. If the plaintiff fails to recover damages, the lawsuit cash advance is not repaid. Additionally, lawsuit funding is structured in such a way that factors such as employment history and credit standing don’t matter. Our only concern is the validity of claim and the likelihood of its success.

The application process takes less than five minutes; we do the rest. After obtaining case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney, if the case is approved for funding we will direct deposit or wire-transfer the funds within 24 – 48 hours. It is really that simple!

If you are involved in an auto accident lawsuit and need financial ammunition to fight for your rights, consider acquiring lawsuit funding. For more information, call Litigation Funding Corporation today!

Cruise Ship Passenger Files Lawsuit Alleging Negligence Led to Fall Injuries

April 11, 2017

It’s unfortunate, but accidents and injuries are common among passengers on their cruise vacation. The most common injuries on a cruise ship involves people who have slipped or tripped and fell. Injuries can range from broken arms and legs to more serious head, neck and brain injuries often resulting in lost wages, astronomical medical expenses and pain and suffering. Many passengers don’t realize that the cruise line might be liable for injuries sustained.

A cruise ship passenger has filed a lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries after she was struck by a sliding door.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 13, 2016, she was aboard the cruise ship, Carnival Breeze when a sliding glass door suddenly and unexpectedly closed, striking her. As a result, the passenger said she lost her balance and fell to the ground. Her injuries led to pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses. The woman holds Carnival responsible for allegedly failing to properly maintain the sliding door in a reasonably safe condition and failing to warn passengers of the dangerous condition of the sliding door.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of the court.
Simply because someone gets hurt on a cruise ship does not mean that it is necessarily the cruise line’s fault. Understanding the significance of a simple accident and a meritorious legal claim is crucial. Therefore, it is important to seek legal advice from an experienced maritime attorney.

These types of cases are difficult to navigate and cruise lines will vigorously deny and defend the claim. The wheels of justice turn much too slowly, especially for cash-strapped plaintiffs. Litigation funding may be the answer.

With a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs can meet financial obligations while the lawsuit winds its way through the courts. Once we received a funding application, we will request some case documentation, evaluate the lawsuit to determine case strength, and if approved, direct deposit or overnight mail funding within 24 – 48 hours. There is no need for a credit check or employment verification. We are only paid when the case settles or results in a favorable verdict. In the event the case is lost, repayment of the cash advance is completely waived.

If you’ve been injured while sailing with Carnival or any cruise line and believe that your injury was sustained due to the negligence of the crew, the cruise line or even a fellow passenger, consult an experienced attorney to know your rights to compensation. If you are strapped for cash, avoid settling your case too early, for too little.
