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

March 2, 2017

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.

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!

Why You Need Litigation Funding If You Are Involved In A Personal Injury Lawsuit

August 8, 2016

A personal injury can be the result of a defective product, medical malpractice, slip and fall accident, or dangerous products, but the most common cause is an auto accident. When a personal injury occurs, the first step is to seek medical attention. Once you have done so, it is important to gather as much information applicable to your accident as possible, such as the names and contact information of any witnesses and photos of the accident scene. You should also retain all medical records and expenses.

Although the insurance company will determine a settlement in accordance with a “formula”, it may not be enough to compensate you adequately for your loss. To obtain the justice you deserve, it is important to contact an experienced attorney who can evaluate your claim and explain your rights. Even in a “cut and dry” case, a settlement could be years away.

In the meantime, you may struggle financially to pay the basic living expenses, such as groceries, mortgage, and car payments, as well as expenses associated with the accident, such as medical bills. Knowing you may be desperate to settle, the insurance company will make you a less-than-favorable offer. When in a time of significant financial need (when you are behind on the mortgage or car payments), you are likely to accept the offer. This can be a fatal mistake.

Litigation funding is financial assistance that will allow you to better withstand the lengthy legal process, keep your valuable assets safe, and give your attorney time to achieve the maximum settlement possible. This type of funding is NOT a loan. It is a non-recourse cash advance, meaning you repay the advance, plus fees, only if and when your case successfully settles. If you lose your case, the funding is completely waived; you owe us absolutely nothing and keep the advance. Another unique feature of litigation funding is that there are no credit checks or proof of employment required because approval for a cash advance is based solely on the strength of the lawsuit.

With litigation funding, there is no reason to settle your case prematurely due to pressing financial burdens. To find out if your case qualifies for litigation funding, complete the online application or call our office at 1-866-LIT-FUND.

When the bills continuously pile up, one’s ability to wait for a fair settlement may not be an option without the help of litigation funding.

A woman alleges she was seriously injured when she slipped and fell at an Edwardsville, Illinois restaurant, due to a liquid substance on the floor near the server’s station. The suit alleges negligence for failing to keep patrons safe by allowing the substance to remain on the floor long enough for the woman to slip and fall.
