Scooter Accident Plaintiffs Can Benefit from Litigation Funding

April 15, 2014

Scooter accidents are often caused by irregularities in roadways, but they may also occur as a result of an automobile. Due to its size, scooter may not be seen in a rear view or side of a vehicle. Driver distractions may also lead to an accident. In any event, scooter accidents can cause life-threatening physical injuries or death that can lead to unforeseeable medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life.

An elderly man riding an electronic scooter has died after being struck by a vehicle exiting a parking lot. The investigation is ongoing, but police do not believe speed and alcohol were contributing factors.

Although this is a difficult time for the victim’s family, if they believe the accident resulted from driver negligence, the family should consult with an attorney who can help preserve their legal rights and obtain a maximum settlement for their loss. While going through the legal process, if the family experiences financial problems, they should consider litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a no-risk cash advance on the expected proceeds of the case. With a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs stay financially afloat during the litigation process so they can fight for all the money they deserve. Qualifying is easy! There is no credit check, no employment verification, and no upfront fees. Once approved, the lawsuit cash advance can be used for anything you need – pay the mortgage or rent, funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, and daily household expenses. Best of all, since litigation funding is NOT a lawsuit loans, there are no monthly payments and repayment is only made after the case settles. If the funded client loses, the repayment is completely waived.

Litigation funding puts cash in your hands when you need it most – to avoid a low settlement offer, home foreclosure, auto repossession, ruined credit, and bankruptcy. If you have a personal injury or wrongful death claim and need money now, we may be able to put money in your hands now so you can pay your bills and other financial obligations. It takes less than five minutes to apply online; we will do the rest.

Live Comfortably Until a Settlement is Reached with Pre-Settlement Funding

February 24, 2014

Those who need emergency cash for their auto accident case may want to contact a legal funding company to apply for a lawsuit cash advance.

An Ohio man filed an auto accident lawsuit against a driver he claimed was responsible for a multi-vehicle accident that allegedly left his wife, a passenger in his vehicle, permanently impaired. According to the lawsuit, “As the man entered the intersection, the defendant ran a red light, lost control, and struck the plaintiffs vehicle on the passenger side.” An investigation determined that the defendant was not only speeding, but talking on his cell phone at the time of the accident.

The plaintiff claimed that because of the accident his wife is physically impaired, experiences ongoing physical pain and mental anguish, and the couple has incurred exorbitant medical costs. Due to her injuries, he has lost a significant amount of work to care for her. The insurance company made a settlement offer, but the plaintiff’s attorney said it was significantly less than what the couple deserved. He believed if they waited, the case would settle within 8 – 10 months for a much higher settlement. Unfortunately, the medical bills alone were a struggle for this couple. Pre-settlement lawsuit funding was just what they needed.

Rather than letting the bills pile and risking bad credit or home foreclosure, pre-settlement funding can work as a cash advance that does not have to be repaid until the case settles. Applying for funding requires a simple online application. Approval is based solely on the strength of the case. If approved, the client and his attorney will sign a contract detailing the funding agreement. There is no need to worry about confusing text; the terms and conditions are clearly defined, but Litigation Funding Corp. will go over everything first. We also advise our clients to only take a cash advance for the amount absolutely necessary; a request for additional funding can be made later, if needed. The best part of pre-settlement funding is that if you lose your case, the repayment is waived.

From mortgage and auto payments to utility bills and daily living expenses, pre-settlement funding will allow you to live comfortably until the settlement check arrives in the mail. Call us for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Consider Litigation Funding Before Risking Your Credit

December 23, 2013

Tammy, a mother of three young children, can still recall the horrifying day when the phone rang while she was cooking dinner. When Tammy answered the phone, she knew instantly that something was wrong. Tammy’s husband, John, was killed in an auto accident on his way home from work.

As a stay at home mom, Tammy was quickly overwhelmed. With a budget already stretched, Tammy found herself with little savings and a lot of bills. The negligent driver’s insurance company continued to deny, delay, and defend the claim. Although Tammy consulted an auto accident attorney and filed a lawsuit, it did not speed up her case. Months were passing and a settlement was not in sight. The stress was taking a toll; she need cash fast.

As Tammy was cleaning up after the kids, she heard a commercial on the TV in the other room – “Do you need cash to pay your bills before your lawsuit settles?” Curious that help may be available to her, Tammy called her attorney to see if he was familiar with such a service. Tammy’s attorney told her that such financial help is provided by litigation funding companies and he immediately suggested Litigation Funding Corp. as the expert in the industry. After Colleen thoroughly explained how the funding works, Tammy applied for a $3,500 cash advance. She was approved the next day and her bills were paid in full. Eight months later, Tammy’s case settled for $1.2 million at which time Litigation Funding Corp. was repaid. Had Tammy lost her case, she would have owed us nothing. That’s because litigation funding is no-risk funding to plaintiffs.

There are no upfront fees; no credit checks or employment required. Contact us today and we will be happy to assist you.

When Does Litigation Funding Make Sense

May 6, 2013

Mike was seriously injured in an auto accident and unable to return to work. He filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver, but while the case was strong and winnable in court, the defense were denying, defending, and delaying the claim. Until the auto accident, Mike had excellent credit so he was able to apply and receive a traditional bank loan to help pay the medical bills and monthly household expenses. Unfortunately, Mike’s case did not settle as soon as expected and he defaulted on the loan. His car was repossessed and his credit was ruined.

Carol was seriously injured in an auto accident and unable to return to work. She filed a lawsuit, but her case was also being delayed by the defendant. Instead of a traditional bank loan, Carol opted for litigation funding from a legal finance company. This non-recourse cash advance covered her bills for three months, but when her case was delayed she needed to request additional funding. Her case settled three months later; Carol stayed financially afloat and maintained her credit standing.

After repaying the lawsuit cash advance, Carol’s proceeds from the settlement were less than Mike’s, but she was able to keep all bills current and maintain good credit.

While litigation funding is not right for every plaintiff, it can be the answer if the only option is to settle too soon, for too little. Unlike a traditional bank loan, there are no monthly payments, no credit checks, or employment verification. If you fail to make monthly payments, you default on the loan. Once you default, you are at risk of losing whatever collateral you pledged as security for the loan, usually your home. Additionally, you are still obligated to repay the loan. On the other hand, litigation funding is based solely on the merits of the case, plaintiffs who may not qualify for a bank loan or line of credit, may qualify for a lawsuit cash advance. Litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is only made if, and when, the plaintiff successfully settles, whereas a bank loan must always be repaid. Additionally, a lawsuit cash advance never shows up on a credit report.

When you need fast cash and everyone else is saying “No”, contact Litigation Funding Corp. After completing a one-page application, we will request documentation from your attorney to determine if the case has merit. If approved, funding can be available in less than 48 hours. With litigation funding, you have nothing to lose, but much to gain – financial peace of mind and credit intact.

Speeding Results in Intersection Fatality

February 16, 2012

A 68-year-old man was killed in an auto accident when the driver of a Toyota Scion ran a red light and hit the man’s Chevrolet Cavalier broadside. Witnesses said the driver of the Scion was speeding, swerved around a vehicle in front of him that had stopped at the light and hit the Cavalier in the intersection. The two vehicles then skidded into a guardrail. The impact caused life-threatening injuries to the Toyota driver; the driver of the Cavalier died at the scene. The accident is still under investigation.

During the continued investigation, the family of the deceased driver may choose to talk to an experienced attorney about their rights to compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one. Even before the grief has subsided, the family may be faced with financial hardship as they try to pay the cost of a funeral and adjust to life without a loved one. Fortunately, they do not have to face this burden alone; Litigation Funding Corp. can help.

Injured Victims Can Survive the Holidays with a “Lawsuit Loan”

November 21, 2011

Is a personal injury and pending lawsuit causing a budget pinch this holiday season? If so, then you may want to consider a lawsuit funding. Often times described as a “lawsuit loan”, lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against a pending lawsuit.

After a serious injury from an auto accident or medical malpractice negligence, insurance companies are less likely to settle and more willing to deny, delay, and defend. This often leaves plaintiffs with mounting medical bills and other while they wait for a fair settlement. With the holidays upon us, many personal injury victims are feeling the financial pressures associated with the long litigation process. With lost wages, pain and suffering, and ongoing medical treatment, a plaintiff may be wondering how to get through the holidays.

Fortunately, there is an answer – lawsuit funding. If you’re waiting for compensation from a personal injury lawsuit and need cash now, we can help. We provide “fast cash” that can be used to pay important bills and help you enjoy the holidays.

If you lose your case, you owe us nothing. That’s right – no recovery, no repayment.

Don’t be forced into an unfair settlement. Get the cash you need for the holidays this year with a lawsuit cash advance. Let a “lawsuit loan” give you peace of mind this holiday season. Apply online or call us 1.866.LIT.FUND.

Auto Accident on Icy Highway Claims Three Lives

November 15, 2011

A fatal auto accident in Washington is a sad reminder of how dangerous icy highways can be this winter. Police said that at approximately 6:30 on Saturday morning, the driver of a Toyota pick-up truck lost control on an icy stretch of the highway, spun sideways, crossed the center line, and was hit broadside by a tractor trailer. The driver of the pick-up, his passenger, and a passenger in the tractor trailer were killed upon impact. The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.

It is easy to forget about wintry driving conditions especially early in the season, but drivers need to be ready. Whether it’s a dusting of snow or a patch if ice, winter roads can be very dangerous. Icy conditions usually require us to drive at less than posted speeds. Slow down and give yourself time to stop. This is also a good time to remind drivers to check the condition of all tires, antifreeze levels, and put a survival kit in all vehicles in case of an emergency.

The families of the victims may seek legal counsel to learn their rights in the wrongful death of a loved one. After retaining an attorney and pursuing a lawsuit, they may want to ask questions about the possibility of accessing lawsuit funding. A “litigation loan” could be a smart move for a family wondering how they will make ends meet financially without a breadwinner or to simply pay additional expenses associated with the accident. Pre-settlement funding helps victims deal with unexpected bills and then take care of other pressing financial business, like the mortgage and car payments.

A lawsuit cash advance can help them wait for a just and equitable settlement. If approved for a lawsuit cash advance, approval can be provided within 24-48 hours, and a check wired to your account. It is free to apply and funds are only required to be repaid if the case is settled or won. If you lose the case, the money is yours to keep, free of charge.

Only in Texas? Bull Causes Fatal Automobile Accident

August 3, 2010

Does one drive to work thinking “I may encounter a bull in the road today”? Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened in this case. A border patrol agent from Encino, Texas was out on patrol when he observed a driver veer off the road and slam into a tree. The driver was trying to avoid a loose bull on the road; his evasive action at 65 mph resulted in this fatality.

A passenger in the vehicle was airlifted to the nearest hospital with possible traumatic brain injury. Neither of the occupants was wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. A brain damage victim almost always has a very long road to recovery.

This victim may well wish to discuss his situation with a personal injury lawyer who specializes in automobile accident cases. In most areas, farmers are responsible for their livestock and this may factor into the case once the bull’s owner is located. Certainly there will be questions about the speed the driver was traveling on a rural gravel road and whether or not the car was defective in some way – brakes, steering, suspension or tires.

If litigation is pursued and a lawyer is retained, this family might wish to apply for litigation funding to help pay important bills and expenses until their case is resolved. A lawsuit cash advance is available to eligible accident victims; the application process for lawsuit funding is quick and easy and, if a victim is approved, a lawsuit cash advance will arrive within 24-48 hours.

It is free to apply for legal finance; the strategic advantage to obtaining pre-settlement funding is that it permits accident victims to wait for a fair resolution and not have to settle for chump change from an insurance company because they need cash immediately. It is certainly something to think about when the time comes

TRAX Train Crash Kills Two; Severely Injures Two More

July 14, 2010

No one will really know why a young man decided to try to cross railway tracks while the crossing arm was coming down and signaling an oncoming train. The man was trying to maneuver around the barrier when the car he was driving, which belonged to his father, was hit by a TRAX train. The impact of this auto-train collision killed the young driver and a passenger; two other passengers were critically injured.

The family of one of the injured passengers has filed a personal injury lawsuit naming the driver, his father and his father’s employer (I presume the vehicle was owned by the company for the father’s use). The suit alleges the father let his son drive despite his bad driving record and habit of not paying attention to traffic rules. The young plaintiff was permanently injured in the auto-train collision.

It is likely that the other families of the other victims will consider pursuing lawsuits, as well. This was a horrific crash and they are entitled to seek compensation for their losses.

After all victims retain counsel and pursue lawsuits, they and their families may want to ask questions about the possibility of accessing lawsuit funding. A “litigation loan” could be a smart move for a family wondering how they were going to pay for the care of their injured child for the rest of their lives.

Pre-settlement funding is something that lets the victims deal with their medical expenses, therapy, etc., right away and then take care of other pressing financial business, like the mortgage and car payments.

A lawsuit cash advance will help them wait for a just and equitable verdict in their favor; it they are approved, funding can be completed within 24-48 hours, by check or wire. It is free to apply and funds are only required to be repaid if the case is settled or won. If you lose the case, the money is yours to keep, free of charge.

Severe Spinal Cord Injury: Experienced Attorney and Lawsuit Funding Are a Powerful Combination

May 20, 2010

If you have suffered a severe spinal cord injury as the result of a car accident, motorcycle accident or even a fall that was the result of negligence on someone else’s part, then you may want to talk to a personal injury lawyer about filing a lawsuit. You’ll need to recover compensation for your personal injury damages, particularly the physical wounds, as you will need care for the rest of your life. There are some instances where a person does have an inherited condition, but in this post we are just focusing on paraplegia that was the result of an injured acquired in an accident.

What happens with paraplegia is that the channels through which your body sends signals to other body parts get disrupted. This interference in the signals being sent and received will cause not only a loss of sensation in the lower extremities, but sensory damage in the brain itself. When the brain is injured as well, it loses control over other neurological functions.

Contrary to popular myth, the spinal cord does not need to be severed to lose function and feeling. Generally speaking, the higher up the spinal cord the damage occurs, the more paralysis is involved; the result may be either paraplegia or quadriplegia.

While there is no cure for paraplegia, at least not yet, there are various therapies that make an enormous difference to the sufferer. Those therapies are both medical and psychological; some victims may regain minor functioning in their lower limbs if the swelling in their spinal cord goes down over time. Unfortunately, many paraplegics do not recover complete body functions.

The most dangerous complication of paraplegia is respiratory system damage; thus, most often, pneumonia is the leading cause of death for those with paraplegia. Further, loss of feeling can lead to serious injury to the paralyzed body part.

As you can see, there are many things that someone who has been diagnosed with paraplegia will face for the rest of their lives. This is why they need to speak to a competent personal injury lawyer, in order to get compensation that will cover their care.

The paraplegic who was injured in an accident caused by someone’s negligence may also want to check out the possibility of getting a lawsuit cash advance. This is a legal finance service that will provide funding to pay important bills and expenses as well as medical, home health care and physical therapy while waiting the case to be resolved. Lawsuit funding is based on the potential of your case. After your application and the receipt of information from your attorney, if approved, you will receive funding in as little as 24 hours. It might be the answer to your financial distress while you wait for your lawyer and the legal system to provide justice.
