Lawsuit Filed Over Trash Truck Explosion that Severely Burns Worker

March 2, 2017

A man who suffered third-degree burns from a trash truck’s natural gas system has filed a personal injury lawsuit.

According to the claim, the plaintiff was at work, preparing to wash a trash truck, when there was a violent explosion. As a result, the man suffered third-degree burns to his face, arms, and lower extremities. The lawsuit alleges that the explosion was caused by a failure of a component part of the compressed natural gas system attached to the truck. The complaint contends that the defendants were fully aware of the deficiency in the product prior to the explosion, yet failed to properly design, manufacture, maintain, inspect, or replace the hose that permitted the fugitive gas to escape. Defendants also failed to warn those using the product of the danger posed, according to the lawsuit. The plaintiff seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

The plaintiff’s severe injuries are likely to have a substantial impact on his financial situation. His ability to earn a living has, likely, been substantially impaired. The lawsuit will most likely take months, possibly years, to resolve.

How does he support himself and his family while waiting for a resolution? If he doesn’t have substantial savings or family that can help financially, litigation funding could be the perfect strategic solution.

Litigation funding enables plaintiffs to handle all medical bills, therapy costs, medications and even required surgery, as well as their usual monthly expenses, like the mortgage/rent, tuition, car payments, and other immediate expenses. With the financial pressure removed, plaintiffs can patiently wait for a fair litigation outcome, rather than accepting an inadequate offer that a greedy insurance company is trying to squeeze them to take.

Since approval is based solely on case strength and has nothing to do with credit or employment status, the money could be available within 24-48 hours. All we need is a funding application and pertinent case documentation to determine make a funding decision. If a lawsuit cash advance is approved, a contract is signed defining the terms of the agreement including repayment from the proceeds of the settlement. That is correct, the cash advance is only repaid once the case settles. What if case resolution is not in the plaintiff’s favor? Then, repayment is completely waived.

Pre-Settlement Lawsuit Funding Supports Defective Product Lawsuits

September 25, 2014

Product manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe, as well as warn consumers of potential dangers. When consumers buy a product on the store shelf or in the showroom, they assume the product is safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Millions of people injured every year by defective products – toy, drug, equipment, vehicle, etc. – can be affected physically, emotionally, and financially. If the accident or injury could have been prevented, if the manufacturer had published warnings, or if the product was somehow misleading, victim may be entitled to compensation.

A defective product lawsuit may take time to settle. During this time, a plaintiff may not have enough money to pay the bills, especially if the injuries meant the inability to return to work. Pre-settlement funding may be available to meet financial needs while waiting for case settlement. This type of cash advance can be an essential asset because funding can be available quickly. Unlike traditional bank loans, there are no credit checks, employment verifications, or monthly payments. The only requirement is a guarantee of repayment once the case settles. If the plaintiff loses, the lawsuit cash advance is completely waived.

If you are the victim of a defective product and have file a personal injury lawsuit, don’t let the bills pile up and ruin your credit. Apply for pre-settlement lawsuit funding and you could be paying your bills in less than 48 hours.

Help for Victims Injured by Defective Medical Products

July 22, 2014

We expect the products we purchase to be designed and manufactured in such a manner that they are safe. We also expect that the manufacturer will provide reasonable warnings of product dangers and recalls. Yet, every year thousands of consumers are seriously injured or die as a result of defective or faulty products. When medical device manufacturers fail to properly ensure that their products are designed with safety in mind, they should be held legally accountable for the injuries caused by their products. A defective product lawsuit may be necessary to compensate an innocent victim, alert the public about the dangerous product, and create an economic incentive for the manufacturing company to produce safe products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products, ultimately resulting in the saving of lives.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Bed Handles Inc., of Blue Springs, Mo., have recalled over 110,000 adult portable bed handles after three woman reportedly died after becoming entrapped between the mattress and the bed handles. All three victims were living in an assisted living or adult family home at the time. An investigation into the product revealed that the handles are dangerous because they can shift away from the mattress, creating a gap that disabled or elderly patients can fall in to and potentially strangle or become trapped.

Although the recall comes too late to save the three lives that were lost, the families of the victims might have a legitimate injury claim against the nursing home/assistant living center and the product manufacturer. It is important that they contact an experienced personal injury attorney to understand their rights. Once a lawsuit is filed, if these families need financial assistance until the case settles, they may be able to procure litigation funding.
