Negotiate from a Position of Strength; Negotiate with Litigation Funding

February 8, 2017

The justice system in America has always been unequal based on the financial strength of the parties involved. When it comes to personal injury lawsuits, plaintiffs have always had a difficult time bringing a claim against large insurance companies that are very well-funded and have the ability use their financial strength to their advantage. They will make a low-ball offer in hopes that the plaintiffs in a financially compromised position and will accept in exchange for a quick settlement. Litigation funding helps even the playing field for plaintiffs.

When you have been injured and are unable to work, the bills continue to come in and must be paid. The financial strain not only seriously impacts your life, but it also impacts your case. A financially desperate plaintiff is not in a favorable position regarding settlement negotiations; this person will often settle for too little, too soon.

Litigation funding affords plaintiffs the flexibility of receiving a portion of their settlement now, without the need for monthly payments. This way they can pay their bills while negotiating their claim from a position of strength. Once the case settles, the plaintiff’s attorney will repay the cash advance from the proceeds of the case. On the other hand, if the case is lost, repayment of the cash advance is completely waived.

Receive Post-Settlement Litigation Funding to Pay Your Bills While Waiting for the Settlement to Arrive

February 6, 2017

For many who have waited months — or even years — for their personal injury case to settle, the prospect of waiting even longer to receive a settlement check can not only be emotionally frustrating, but financially damaging.

Insurance companies lack sympathy when it comes to cutting a settlement check. In the meantime, bills will continue to pile up and financial stresses will not go away. There may be other implications as well, such as the risk to one’s credit rating, foreclosure, or car repossession. In times like this, Litigation Funding Corporation can provide a lawsuit cash advance to meet a plaintiff’s financial obligations.

Litigation Funding helps plaintiffs not only during the litigation process, but also when waiting for a settlement check to arrive, or in cases where an appeal is pending. A lawsuit cash advance is not a loan; there are no upfront or out-of-pocket expenses associated with applying for an advance and repayment is contingent upon receiving a settlement. If the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived.

Don’t take a chance with your finances, especially after winning your case. If you are a plaintiff who has reached a settlement that has not paid out, but are struggling with your ongoing medical bills and living expenses, contact us to apply for post settlement litigation funding. With over 18 years’ experience in the legal finance industry, we have provided non-recourse cash advances before, and after a settlement or verdict has been determined. We offer a quick and easy application and approval process. Once Litigation Funding has all the necessary information, you could receive your cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. The money can be used immediately for whatever purposes you need.

Litigation Funding is an Option for Plaintiffs with Mounting Debt during a Pending Lawsuit

February 3, 2017

If a truck accident has been caused by the failure of the truck or its parts, components or systems, the carrier, distributor or manufacturer may be liable for accident victims’ injuries and other losses. The failure of a truck’s parts, systems, etc., could be a maintenance issue, which would likely make the carrier responsible. But if the failure was caused by a defect that was there from the start, a product liability claim may seek to hold the manufacturer and distributor accountable.

The legal process can be complicated when pursuing the recovery of monetary compensation in a product liability case. That is why it is critical to have an experienced trucking accident attorney on your side who can uncover the facts and achieve the maximum damages award. But, tracking down the source of a defective part or component can be a time-consuming process in itself. When time is not on your side financially, litigation funding can be a lifesaver.

An Alabama family has received $16.8 million after a family member was killed in October 2013 after he lost control of the log truck he was driving overturned.

Cab guards are meant to prevent shifting cargo from contacting the cab of heavy trucks. According to the lawsuit, the cab guard failed. When the load of logs on the truck shifted in the crash, they breached the truck’s cab and struck the driver, killing him instantly. Additionally, the trailer support beams failed to contain the truck’s load in place, allowing it to shift forward, and the trailer had no cab guard attached to it.

According to the court order, the jury found in favor of the plaintiff, noting that the cab guard on the truck was defective in design, manufacture, and warnings.

Wrongful death accidents such as this one often cause immediate and long-term financial problems for family members of the deceased. When that happens, legal finance services can provide both immediate and long-term financial assistance. This service, known as litigation funding, helps plaintiffs pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and ongoing monthly bills during the litigation process. It is easy to apply for a lawsuit cash advance online or by phone and there are no costs or fees associated with the application. There are also no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. Repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case; if the plaintiff loses their case, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety. That is correct; the plaintiff would owe nothing. Where else can you obtain a “risk-free lawsuit loan”? If approved, the lawsuit cash advance would arrive within 24-48 hours by check or by wire.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to a product defect or corporate negligence, consult an attorney immediately to help you file your claim. Once you are in a pending lawsuit, if you need financial assistance, consider litigation funding. It may be the difference between settling for less too early and waiting for a fair judgment later.

Litigation Funding Helps Plaintiffs Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable for Their Actions?

January 24, 2017

You were seriously injured in an auto accident due to a distracted driver. The medical bills are piling up, you need to replace your damage car, you are unable to return to work, and your credit cards have reached their limit. Your attorney said your case won’t settle for at least six months so you asked the bank for a loan; they turned you down. Now what?

You are faced with two options – settle with the insurance company, knowing their offer is much lower than what you deserve and your attorney says he can obtain if you just wait, or apply for litigation funding.

All too often, plaintiffs who are injured settle for far less than they deserve from those who were distracted because they need the money immediately. Litigation funding is a way to cope in terms of paying the bills so your case can proceed to justice you get the full damages you deserve and the responsible person is held accountable.

Litigation funding is a cash advance against your anticipated settlement. There are no upfront costs or fees, no credit check, no employment verification, etc. Whether you are approved is based solely on the strength of your case, and how likely it is you will win. If approved, the money can be used however you wish, although we recommend that it be used for “emergency” needs, such as medical expenses, mortgage, car payments, etc. As a non-recourse type of funding, repayment of the cash advance is made from the case proceeds. We will never require repayment should you lose the case.

Don’t wait another day for the financial relief you need. Litigation Funding Corporation has streamlined the application process; it is quick, easy, and hassle-free with our online application. If approved, funds can be available in as little as 24 hours.

Princess Cruise Passenger Sues for Sewage Slip and Fall

January 11, 2017

While most slip and fall accidents are simply ‘just accidents’, there are some accidents that happen due to the negligence of the cruise line or its employees. Establishing negligence by the cruise line and then proving that negligence can be quite difficult. Injured passengers should seek legal advice from an attorney experienced in maritime laws (the laws of the seas).

A passenger aboard one of Princess Cruises’ ships has filed a lawsuit resulting from a slip-and-fall accident aboard while vacationing with her husband last year.

According to the complaint, the cruise ship was docked for repairs to its sewage system. The plaintiff claims she went to a public restroom aboard the ship, but the toilet was overflowing with sewage and she slipped and fell, striking her face on the door. She says that she was knocked unconscious, laying on the contaminated bathroom floor. The lawsuit states that as a result, the woman had to get a tetanus shot and was placed on various antibiotics. The lawsuit claims the cruise company is responsible for her permanent injuries and emotional distress.

Maritime laws apply not only to injured workers, but, also to passengers. The cruise ship is obligated to keep areas free from hazards and alert passengers as well as employees about dangerous conditions. A cruise ship company will generally be liable to its guests and passengers for injuries sustained that are a result of negligence when the operator knew or should have known about the dangerous condition. The most common injuries include slip and fall accidents.

Whether you are injured as a passenger or an employee at sea, it is highly recommended that you retain the services of an experienced maritime attorney to pursue your case. Litigation Funding Corporation has strategic relationships with attorneys all over the country who specialize in this area of the law. Our attorney referral program promises to locate a legal specialist in any area of the law, including Maritime law, with 48 hours of your request.

Often times, those involved in a cruise ship accident lawsuit eventually face financial hardships. Many can’t work and the legal process is long and drawn out. Some cases take many years to resolve. At times like this, Litigation Funding Corporation can help. We can provide litigation funding to pay your extraordinary medical expenses, mortgage or rent payments, car payments, food, utilities or other important expenses.

Once we received a funding application, we will request some case documentation, evaluate the lawsuit to determine funding, 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 simply repaid once the case settles. If there is no recovery on the case, no money is repaid. It’s that simple!

If you have been injured on a cruise ship due to negligence of the crew or cruise line, you may have a potential claim. Once you file a lawsuit, if you are financially strapped, leverage our money into a larger case settlement. Contact us at 1.866.LIT.FUND to learn more or apply online to get started.

Man Charged With Felony DUI After Deadly Crash

January 10, 2017

One of the most negligent acts by a driver is getting behind the wheel while under the influence.
A single vehicle crash in Charleston, S.C. left one man dead and another arrested on a felony DUI charge.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, a white Buick Park Avenue was speeding when the vehicle slid across oncoming lanes and struck a tree stump. The driver and a passenger were transported to the hospital with serious injuries; the passenger later died from blunt force injuries.

Officers found a beer can on the driver’s side floor board and an empty case of beer in the vehicle; they said the driver smelled of alcohol. He has been charged with felony DUI resulting in death. The crash is still under investigation.

While it is the role of the criminal courts to punish the negligent driver by revoking his license, issuing fines, and/or sentencing him to jail time, the ruling will not compensate the victim’s family for his death.
With the help of an experienced auto accident attorney the family can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation can cover medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.

Justice usually takes time, often years. The loss of a family member will often lead to financial problems until a settlement is reached. For financial assistance during this time, many plaintiffs will turn to litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a non-recourse cash to pay funeral expenses, medical expenses, regular monthly bills and other necessary expenses. It also helps to prevent damage to a plaintiff’s credit score. When a plaintiff is financially stable, his/her attorney has time to fight for fair compensation rather than settling the case prematurely.

Applying for funding is easy online or over the phone. Funding decisions are based on the strength of the case; there is no need for a credit check, employment verification, monthly payments, or upfront fees. Once approved, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, litigation funding is repaid only upon a successful settlement. If the plaintiff does not receive a favorable cash settlement, he/she is under no obligation to pay back the cash advanced.

If you believe litigation funding could help you survive during the pursuit of your personal injury or wrongful death claim, you owe it to yourself to contact Litigation Funding Corporation, a direct lender for litigation funding. We can provide a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

Patient Alleges Negligence During Surgery Cause Esophagus Injury

January 3, 2017

While the use of a flexible probing tool during surgery is supposed to reduce injuries, there is still the risk of errors, leading to complications, injury, even death if gone undetected. For example, if the esophagus is perforated during a medical procedure, the contents of the esophagus can collect in the chest area, resulting in a serious infection requiring surgery to repair the hole. If undetected, it could result in serious injury or death.

Any delay or failure to provide the appropriate standard of care could be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

A man recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging he was injured during surgery in December 2014 at a Veterans Affairs hospital in California. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff holds the surgeon and hospital responsible for negligence during surgery that caused esophagus damage that went undetected for two weeks. The plaintiff seeks general damages, medical expenses, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just.

While waiting for their case to settle, the plaintiff could be facing financial issues in which litigation funding could help. This lawsuit cash advance is often the answer to difficult situations where a plaintiff is between a rock and a hard place without sufficient funds to handle unexpected medical bills and ordinary living expenses such as the rent/mortgage, groceries, utility bills, etc.

Receiving a lawsuit cash begins with completing an online application. Next, one of our professional staff members will request case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. Once the application has been reviewed, if the case is approved for funding, we will prepare a contract for signature by the plaintiff and his/her attorney. Funds will then be sent via overnight mail or wire transfer.

There are no applications fees, no credit check and no employment requirements required. Because there is no need for a credit check, the plaintiff’s credit remains intact. But, the most appealing benefits of litigation funding is that there are no monthly payments and if the case is lost, the cash advance does not need to be repaid.

If you believe you or a family member has been seriously injured from medical malpractice, medical error, or neglect by a doctor, hospital, nurse, clinic, nursing home or other health care provider, you may have a grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Once your lawsuit is filed by an attorney, if you need financial assistance, contact Litigation Funding Corporation. We may have the mechanism you need to pay your bills, keep your credit standing, and fight for your rights.

Litigation Funding Corporation Provides Means for Auto Accident Victims to Decline a Low Settlement Offer

December 20, 2016

Auto accidents are the number one cause of personal injuries in the U.S., causing both physical and financial strain to a victim and his/her family. Yet, insurance companies, those that happily take policyholder’s premiums, will use deny, delay, and defend tactics in hopes that the victim will accept a low settlement offer. Victims may consider filing a personal injury lawsuit. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, plaintiffs will, in most circumstances, substantially increase the likelihood of success and the amount recoverable in the case. However, the legal process can be long and complex. A settlement won’t be received until the litigation process is completed, which could take months or years. In the meantime, plaintiffs still have to pay bills and meet their financial obligations. This will only add more financial stress. For those living paycheck to paycheck, any offer may be tempting to accept, but pre-settlement litigation funding is usually a better option.

To determine if litigation funding is right for you, consider these questions.
• Are you worried about financial issues resulting from your accident and injuries?
• Are you facing eviction, foreclosure, repossession of your vehicle?
• Are you unable to put food on the table, pay medical expenses or other necessities of life?
• Are you seriously considering settling your valuable case for any amount?

If you answered yes to most or all of these questions, you should investigate litigation funding.

The purpose of litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance, is to help plaintiffs with unexpected expenses as a result of an auto accident, as well as cover monthly household expenses. Unlike bank loans, litigation funding requires no application fee, no monthly payments, no credit check, and no employment verification. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles. Best of all, it is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning that should you lose your case, the cash advance is waived in its entirety; repayment is completely null and void.

If you are in need of financial assistance during a pending auto accident claim, complete our online application or call our office at 1.866.LIT.FUND. Once received, we will request case documentation from your attorney and make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. It really is that simple!

Lawsuit Alleges Nursing Home and Rehab Center Did Not Properly Care For Hip Fracture

December 15, 2016

A deceased woman’s family has filed a lawsuit against a Chicago long-term care facility, accusing them of failing to appropriately caring for a hip fracture until several days after the fall that caused the fracture.
According to the suit, the plaintiff alleges that the patient fell on January 29, while under the defendant’s care and the defendant did not seek medical treatment until February 6. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to hire adequately trained registered nurses and failing to appropriately monitor the quality of care the decedent received. The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount of more than $50,000.

It may take some time and effort to settle this case. In the meantime, if the family is facing financial hardship, Litigation Funding may be able to support them with a lawsuit cash advance, known as litigation funding.

Don’t Let Your Financial Situation Deteriorate Until You Are Forced Into A Low Settlement Offer

December 7, 2016

An estate administrator recently filed a lawsuit alleging that a Chicago medical facility failed to properly care for her decedent. According to the complaint, the patient fell, which resulted in a fractured hip. Left untreated, the patients’ overall condition deteriorated, ultimately resulting in her death. The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount of more than $50,000.

A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for one’s loss. It may also be a means to improve safety and quality of care. But, wrongful death lawsuits usually take months even years before a settlement is reached. Those on a fixed income often don’t have the financial resources to keep their case going. That’s were litigation funding comes in.

Litigation Funding Corporation understands how difficult it can be to wait for a settlement to help pay medical bills, funeral expenses, as well as everyday living expenses. With a lawsuit cash advance, we can assist plaintiffs with these financial obligations. Funding approvals do not require the plaintiff to be employed, have good credit, or make monthly payments. No payments are made until the case successfully settles. Because it is a non-recourse cash advance, if the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is completely waived. Therefore, with litigation funding there is no need to settle too soon, for too little or struggle financially.

Visit Litigation Funding Corporation online or call us toll-free at 1-866-LIT-FUND to discuss your financial needs. Once we receive an application, we will review the request and specific case documentation from your attorney.
