Has Your Family Suffered A Wrongful Death?

December 29, 2011

What could be more devastating than learning of a loved one’s death due to the negligence and carelessness of someone else?

Any act of negligence – an auto accident, medical malpractice, inadequate care, defective product – that results in death is a potential wrongful death claim. Damages can include loss of future income, medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of consortium or love and affection.

A wrongful death attorney understands how devastating the loss of a loved one can be and can help you seek the compensation you deserve. Unfortunately, a wrongful death claim can be difficult to handle. For example, it must be proven that a doctor’s performance was below the minimum standard of professional conduct before. If a defective product was involved, the defendant might allege that the victim did not use the product with the intended use, and therefore contributed to his/her own death. Additionally, the lawsuit may be hard fought and dragged out for years as the defendant and insurance company deny, delay, and defend the claim. Such delays can put a financial burden on the family, but the insurance company doesn’t care. As the bills pile up, plaintiffs may feel the pressure to settle too soon, for too little; the exact situation the insurance company hopes will happen.

If you in a pending litigation but need cash to pay your current bills and living expenses, you may be able to leverage your expected settlement with a “lawsuit loan.” Applying for litigation funding is easy with our online application process. There are no credit checks or employment verification. Best of all, you pay nothing until you successfully settle your case. We assume all the risk, so if you lose your case, you owe us nothing. Call or visit us online; we can approve your application quickly and get you the cash you need within 24 – 48 hours. Contact us with any questions or concerns.

Platform Collapses; Wisconsin Workers Fall 30 Feet

April 22, 2010

Construction accidents, unfortunately, are fairly common, more common than most safety advocates would like. For example, this accident happened in Wisconsin, and involved two workers who fell 30 feet after the platform they were on, held up by a forklift, collapsed.

The two workers were father and son. When rescue workers arrived on the scene, the son had to be extricated out from under a pallet of shingles. The father had succeeded in jumping from the falling platform and sustained injuries consistent with jumping from that height. EMS crews took the son to a trauma center for treatment and the father to a local hospital for assistance.

The initial investigation of this accident scene indicated that the weight of the platform and the uneven ground, may have caused the forklift to collapse. There are many other questions investigators will want answers to: Who was driving the forklift? Was the load over recommended weight? Why were they loading a forklift on uneven ground? Why were the men on platform supported only by a forklift?

Father and son may wish to speak to a personal injury and, certainly, a workers compensation attorney, to find out where they stand in regards to their rights to recover compensation for their injuries. The attorney will need to know all the details of the accident and will also want to see the final accident report. An experienced attorney will evaluate the situation, tell the workers if they have a case (and what kind, workers compensation, personal injury, or both) and whether a settlement could be negotiated.

While they are waiting for their attorney to achieve justice for them, the injured workers may want to check out whether litigation funding is available to them. A lawsuit cash advance, if they qualify, would help both of them pay their medical bills and other important expenses while they await settlement, administrative award or jury verdict. Lawsuit funding is fast cash that usually arrives within 24-48 hours. The application process is simple and can be done by phone or on the internet.

Legal finance can be used as a plaintiff desires, but common sense suggests that it be used for serious need: Perhaps you are behind on your mortgage, car payment or tuition. Perhaps you need money for necessary and immediate medical treatment. We do not look at job or credit status we are only interested in the quality of your case. And, if you lose your case, you do not have to repay the money. This is no-risk, pre-settlement funding.

20 Foot Fall From Lift Is Fatal to Construction Worker

March 26, 2010

Construction accidents usually result in serious injuries; this one was fatal for one worker and caused serious injuries for another. The construction accident took place in Louisiana at a job site in the East Baton Rouge school system.

It appears that the two construction workers fell a distance 20 feet to the ground after the lift they were balanced on was struck by a beam. One worker suffered a catastrophic traumatic brain injury and was pronounced dead at the scene. The second man was taken to hospital for treatment of his serious injuries.
Both men worked for a steel fabricator at the time of the accident. The police report isn’t clear as to what precisely took place, but from eyewitness reports, it appears that the crane operator moving the beam from one place to another didn’t pay attention to what he was doing and hit the lift.

The surviving construction worker and the family of the deceased construction worker may want to consider filling both a workers compensation case and, if the crane operator was not a co-employee of the same employer as the victims, a personal injury lawsuit against the crane operator and his employer for negligence in operating the unit. Cases like this take some time before they are resolved; in the meantime, the worker and his family and family of the deceased worker may need money now, to pay their bills and expenses and, in the future, as they wait for the case to wind down the long litigation road.
A lawsuit cash advance may work well for both victims here. The victims could apply for litigation funding; if they are approved, they would receive instant cash just when they need it most. This vital lawsuit financial assistance may be used to pay all the necessary medical expenses, funeral expenses and the ordinary expenses that personal injury and wrongful death victims fall behind on when accidents or tragedy happen. Lawsuit funding tries to bridge the gap between lawsuit and case settlement or resolution; legal finance companies do not need credit checks. Lawsuit finance companies look for solid personal injury cases with a reasonable chance of success.
