Car vs. Motorcycle Crash Sends Man to Hospital with Serious Injuries

May 25, 2017

Recovering from an auto accident can take a toll on your emotional and physical well-being, not to mention the financial burden that comes with trying to cover the expenses associated with the crash. While an attorney can help obtain compensation for your loss, this can take more time than your finances can withstand. Once a lawsuit has been filed, if your financial situation is too much to bear, consider litigation funding.

A motorcyclist was sent to the hospital with serious injuries after a collision with a car in Rochester, New Hampshire. Police say the 76-year-old motorcycle driver was traveling south when he was struck by the driver of a 2004 Nissan Sentra, who was pulling out of a parking lot. The Nissan driver was not injured.

Both vehicles sustained heavy damage and had to be towed from the scene. The crash remains under investigation.
Although life is not easy after a serious auto accident, it is even harder to fight for a quick and fair settlement. Just because you are seriously injured due to the negligence of someone else, doesn’t mean the bills stop coming in. In fact, victims usually face a host of additional expenses – car repairs/replacement and medical expenses. If injuries leave the victim unable to work, the financial picture may be devastating.

Insurance companies who you thought would be “on your side” when tragedy strikes will usually deny, delay, and defend claims in their own best interest. Knowing a financial desperate plaintiff will strongly consider any settlement, the insurance company will seize the opportunity to offer much less than case value.

Don’t let the insurance company finagle their way out of a claim; never face the insurance company without an experienced auto accidents attorney who can help you fight for justice.

Once a lawsuit is filed, plaintiffs with limited income may want to consider auto accident litigation funding. Litigation funding is a financial lifeline to keep your case strong and your bills paid until a final settlement is reached. This type of cash advance is provided risk-free. There are no payments until the case settles, but if lost, repayment is completely waived. Additionally, there are no credit checks, employment verification or upfront fees; we fund strictly on case strength.

Once an application and case documentation is received, Litigation Funding Corporation can make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. To learn how litigation funding can help get you the emergency cash you need, call Litigation Funding Corporation or complete our online contact form.

Woman Files Lawsuit Alleging Driver Negligence in Construction Zone Caused Crash

April 6, 2017

A Georgia man cited for a four-vehicle crash in Illinois and ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash, now faces a personal injury lawsuit.

According to Illinois State Police, four vehicles were traveling in the left lane at a construction zone on I-64 when Driver A failed to slow for traffic and rear-ended Driver B. Driver B’s vehicle was pushed into Driver C, which then rear-ended Driver D, ultimately resulting in the four-vehicle crash. Driver B sustained seriously injuries and was flown by helicopter to an area hospital. Two passengers in Driver C’s vehicle sustained minor injuries. All vehicles were towed from the scene due to damage.

Recently, Driver B filed a lawsuit against Driver A and his employer for allegedly causing the multi-vehicle crash. According to the suit, Driver B alleges that on May 13, 2016, Driver A failed to properly operate his vehicle and reduce speed while he was acting within the scope of his employment, resulting in a collision. As a result of his negligence, the plaintiff claims she suffered physical injuries, lost wages, and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for an undisclosed amount in damages.

If you suffered a serious injury or lost a loved one in a work zone or construction zone accident, an experienced attorney can make a difference in your case. If you don’t have an attorney, Litigation Funding Corporation can help you find one, within 24 hours, in all 50 states.

Two Teens Dead and Expectant Mother in Critical Condition Following Head-On Crash

February 20, 2017

Two high school seniors are dead and two other individuals are in serious condition after a head-on collision.
According to reports, the teen driver of a Chevy Impala was speeding, crossed the center line, and struck a Honda Pilot head-on. Police estimate the Impala was traveling at 70 mph at the time of the crash.

The driver of the Honda was 34-weeks pregnant. When she gave birth at the hospital via emergency C-section, the baby girl did not have a heartbeat. The infant was revived after 11 minutes of CPR; she is doing fine. The woman lost a spleen and kidney and has a critical brain injury, according to a family member. Two teen passengers in the sedan were killed; the driver is in serious, non-life threatening condition.

After help from witnesses that a third vehicle was involved, and may have been racing with the Impala, police located that vehicle. Whether the car was racing the Chevy, however, is unknown at this time.

While the crash remains under investigation, the victims may wish to consult an auto accident attorney to understand their rights under a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Recoverable compensation may include medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages, other expenses related to the damages, as well as pain and suffering.

If the woman or the families of the deceased teens file a lawsuit, and need financial support until a settlement is reached, they may want to consider a lawsuit cash advance, known as auto accident litigation funding.

A lawsuit cash advance is based on the merits of the case and the time it will take to achieve an outcome. Funding can often be available in less than 48 hours after receipt of a completed application and case documentation. There are no monthly fees, no credit checks, and no employment verification. Repayment is not required until the case concludes successfully; if the plaintiff loses, the repayment is waived in its entirety.

Litigation Funding: A No-Risk Financial Lifeline For Personal Injury Plaintiffs

September 6, 2016

A “personal injury” case is a legal dispute wherein one person is injured or harmed and another individual or company may be legally at fault for the harm that person incurred. These types of cases often take a significant amount of time to move through proceedings, which can leave the injured person in a precarious financial situation. If the injured person is unable to work, has reduced income, or has expenses associated with care or disability, it may not be possible to wait until a settlement is reached before obtaining funds. What is a victim to do? How does one make ends meet, financially, while battling a well-financed insurance company with all the time and money in the world? One option is to call Litigation Funding Corporation.

We provide lawsuit cash advances, known as litigation funding, to plaintiffs who are in a pending claim, including but not limited to auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice suits and product liability cases. The benefit of litigation funding is that the plaintiff gains access to funds in advance of a settlement. The money can be used any way the client wishes, but is typically to cover the mortgage or rent, car payments, medical expenses and ordinary living expenses.

This source of funding is provided with no-risk because unlike a traditional bank loan, we require no credit check, employment history, or monthly payments. We are only repaid once the case settles. However, if a funded client does not obtain a recovery on his/her personal injury case, we do not recover the advance.

If you have found yourself in a pending lawsuit and struggling financially to make ends meet, complete an online funding application or call our office. We will contact your attorney to obtain information about the case. Based on the information received, our underwriters will make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours.

Then, we will wire the funds directly into your bank account or send a check via overnight mail.

Out of Control Driver Flees Scene after Fatally Striking Pedestrian, Injuring Three Others

July 18, 2016

A pedestrian was killed and a bicyclist was injured when a hit-and-run driver lost control of her vehicle and jumped the sidewalk, striking both women. The driver continued at a high rate of speed before colliding with two vehicles, a Mini Cooper and a Toyota Camry, that were stopped at a traffic light. When her car finally came to a stop, the driver fled the scene. She was later apprehended by police and charged with disobeying a red light and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.

The pedestrian suffered blunt force trauma to her head and was pronounced dead at the hospital; the cyclist suffered a fractured pelvis, broken leg, and other injuries. The driver of the Mini Cooper was transported to an area hospital; the Camry driver was treated at the scene and released.

The fact that the guilty driver has been charged does little to pay the bills for the victims. The deceased’s family members will probably in time file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent driver. One immediate problem they are facing is how to pay for funeral and burial expenses; the family is asking the public for financial support to defray the cost of her funeral and burial.

Wrongful death lawsuits can take up to several years to finally reach settlement. Meanwhile, plaintiffs still have to pay bills and meet their financial obligations. Once a claim is filed, the family would be eligible for auto accident litigation funding, a cash advance that can help defray expenses during a pending claim rather than risking their credit with mounting, unpaid bills.

Litigation Funding Corporation works fast to approve cases for funding — often within 24 hours –because there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. There are absolutely no restrictions on how the money is spent, and the money is only repaid once the case has concluded, either by settlement or otherwise. If our client loses the case, we completely waive repayment.

If you are the victim of an auto accident, have filed a lawsuit and need financial relief, complete our online contact form or call our office at 1.866.LIT.FUND to see if your case qualifies for litigation funding.

Litigation Funding is A Financial Option for Those Out Of Options

May 24, 2016

An Illinois family was stopped at an intersection with a turn signal on when their F-150 was rear-ended by a Nissan Versa. The impact caused the F-150 to spin into oncoming traffic, where it was T-boned by a Ford Expedition. A teen passenger was rescued by Good Samaritans and airlifted to the hospital in serious condition. Her parents were unable to be rescued before their vehicle became engulfed in flames. The Nissan driver and a passenger in the Expedition were airlifted to the hospital in serious condition; the SUVs driver suffered minor injuries. The crash is under investigation.

When a careless or negligent driver causes an accident, victims can suffer serious injury or even death. The at-fault driver can be held responsible for damages suffered by the victims. Damages can include medical expenses, pain and suffering and wages lost because of the victim not being able to work.

In the aftermath of an auto accident, financial hardship can occur especially for those unable to earn an income; expenses can pile up in the form of medical costs, funeral and burial expenses and more. Securing auto accident litigation funding could help alleviate some of the financial strain during a pending lawsuit.

Litigation funding differs from traditional loans in several ways. First of all, credit standing and employment history do not matter. Additionally, there are no monthly payments. In fact, repayment is only made if, and when, a settlement is reached. If a plaintiff fails to recover damages, the “lawsuit loan” is not repaid at all. Once a client is approved for funding, Litigation Funding Corporation can provide the cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. There are absolutely no restrictions on how the money is used.

Have you or a loved one been involved in auto accident where another party is at fault? Do you have an attorney? Are you suing for damages? Consider auto accident litigation funding to help you with finances until your settlement is received. For more information, contact Litigation Funding Corporation today!

April 15, 2015

Sustaining auto accident injuries can be emotionally and financially draining. Serious injuries require extensive medical treatment and usually time off from work.

Facing Financial Devastation during a Pending Lawsuit? Don’t Delay! Apply for Litigation Funding Today!

January 26, 2015

No matter how careful, sometimes people find themselves in the unfortunate event of an auto accident. The accident can range anywhere from a fender bender to a fatality. When the accident is due to someone’s negligence, the injured victim(s), or family members of those killed, should consult an experienced attorney to determine their rights. The purpose of the lawsuit is to seek justice and compensate the victims for medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, the more complicated the lawsuit, the longer it usually takes to reach a fair settlement. For many people the increasing medical bills coupled with the inability to work is debilitating, both physically and financially. When financial resources are stretched to the limit, desperate plaintiffs will often settle for less than fair compensation. For some, litigation funding could make sense.

By obtaining litigation funding, plaintiffs can alleviate the financial stress without compromising the compensation rightfully deserved. When plaintiffs aren’t stressing about their finances, it’s easier to focus on recovering from the injuries while their attorney focuses on obtaining a fair settlement.

Funding provided in this manner is not a “loan,” but rather is a non-recourse cash advance against a pending lawsuit. Poor credit? No worries! No job? No worries! No money to make monthly payments? No worries! The only condition to receive funding is a case with merit. After the funding company receives an application and case documentation from the applicant’s attorney, the underwriters review the strength of the case. If the application is approved, funding can usually be provided within 24 – 48 hours; the cash advance can be deposited directly into your bank account or sent via overnight mail. Best of all, repayment is conditioned on winning the case. If funding is provided and the case is lost, the cash advance does not have to be repaid.

If you are currently involved in an auto accident lawsuit and struggling to pay your bills or put food on the table, certainly litigation funding is a viable option. To find out if you’re eligible for a lawsuit cash advance, complete a no-cost, no-obligation application or call one of our experienced customer service representatives.

Knowingly Aborting an Abnormal Fetus Poses a Delicate Ethical Issue

December 15, 2014

Brock and Rhea Wuth did not know their child would be born with a genetic defect. In utero tests indicated a 50-50 chance of the baby being normal.

The Wuths, both teachers, alleged that the Medical Center did not send Laboratory Corporation of America the information it needed to look for a genetic defect in the correct location – an oversight that resulted in the birth of a son, now 6 years old, with an IQ of less than 70 who cannot walk. The baby was born in 2008 with unbalanced chromosomal translocation. The problem can result in either missing genetic material or extra genetic material in a person’s DNA.

The result would have been entirely different had the hospital sent the correct information to the lab performing the tests. The couple chose to sue Valley Medical Center and the Laboratory Corporation of America for the wrongful birth of their son. Had they known about the condition in advance, they would have chosen to abort the fetus.

Their court case resulted in a $50 million jury settlement.

Some see wrongful death lawsuits as a travesty in justice and claim they demean and denigrate the value of human life. Interestingly, cases of wrongful birth are on the rise. The justice system often finds for the families who, through no fault of their own, end up facing millions of dollars in lifelong childcare because of a medical error.

The medical expenses the Wuth family faces are enormous, and paying those bills is a never-ending process. While waiting for their case to go to trial, they may have been struggling to keep up with the expenses, wondering how they would manage them in addition to their usual financial obligations. Even with an impaired family member requiring extraordinary levels of care, life must move forward.

The Wuths might have befitted from litigation funding, also referred to as a lawsuit loan or pre-settlement funding. Litigation funding assists plaintiffs in paying for medical expenses along with their mortgage, car loan, student loan, utilities and/or rent.

Applying for a lawsuit loan is a user-friendly process that only involves filling out an application online or filling one out on the phone with a staff member. The applicant must have a lawyer hired to begin the application process, and he or she needs to provide case details and an estimated award figure, calculated by the attorney of record.

Once the litigation funding company has the details of the case, it is reviewed quickly, with any funds approved sent to the plaintiff’s bank account within 48 hours. When the money arrives, the plaintiff may pay medical bills immediately and budget out the remainder for “usual” expenses, knowing they have funds to see them through until their case is resolved.

While litigation funding is not for everyone, it allows many people to know they do not need to worry about how to pay their bills while waiting for justice.

Auto Accident Litigation Funding: An Alternative to Settling for Less Than Case Value

November 18, 2014

A year ago today, a motorcyclist was killed in a rollover accident when an drunk driver lost control of his Ford Ranger pick-up truck, struck the center lane, and rolled into oncoming traffic striking a motorcycle. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. His widow and daughter filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the drunk driver, the golf club that served him alcohol before the accident, and the organization hosting the golf outing. After the family has retained an experienced attorney to fight for compensation and justice, they sought litigation funding to help with the financial obligations resulting from lack of his income.

A lawsuit can take years to settle, during which time a plaintiff may have financial needs that must be taken care of immediately, for things such as medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, or ongoing living expenses. Financial pressures can force innocent victims to settle a case too soon, for too little. Before that happens, plaintiffs should consult with an experienced lawsuit funding expert. A legal funding company understands the financial situation facing plaintiffs and knows the lengths that insurance companies will go through to reach a less-than-favorable settlement offer.

By obtaining a lawsuit cash advance, the plaintiff has immediate access to money and is not required to pay the firm until a settlement is reached in her lawsuit. Funding is offered as non-recourse funding, which means that plaintiffs only pay the money back if they win their lawsuit or obtain a settlement. Lawsuits eligible for such funding typically involve personal injury or wrongful death.

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling financially, put the justice system to work for you. Use litigation funding to ease your financial burden and give your attorney the time needed to obtain full value in your case. An application can be done online or by phone. If approved, the emergency cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours.
