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.

Litigation Funding Assistance for Victims of Fatal Hit-and-Run Tractor Trailer Crash

April 3, 2017

Litigation Funding Corporation is in the business of providing lawsuit cash advances to plaintiffs before the case is ultimately resolved and they receive an award or settlement.

A tractor trailer driver is being charged after he left the scene of a fatal crash in Jackson County, West Virginia on March 30.

State Police said that the tractor trailer slammed into a pick-up truck, virtually destroying the pick-up and killing its 33 year old driver instantly. The pick-up became stuck under the semi and was dragged more than a mile before it became detached from the tractor trailer. The trucker, then, drove another 1.5 miles before stopping. He was seen trying to remove evidence that was on his rig. There was also no indication that he was going to call the police or return to the scene, according to reports.

The tractor trailer driver has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident. He is also charged with allegedly providing false information to police. The exact cause of the crash is unclear; the investigation is ongoing.
Despite criminal charges, the family of the deceased man can seek justice through a wrongful death lawsuit.
Tractor trailer accident cases can take a long time to settle. In fact, it is not uncommon for it to take a minimum of two yeas before the case is resolved and a settlement reached. If the family of the deceased man is urgently in need of money to stay financially afloat, litigation funding may be the best option.

Litigation funding financially empowers plaintiffs to pursue their case long enough to obtain the maximum settlements they deserve. This cash advance is based strictly on the merits of the lawsuit, not credit rating or employment history.

At Litigation Funding Corporation, we make the application and funding process hassle-free. There are no credit checks, employment verification, monthly payments, or out of pocket expenses. Unlike many legal finance companies, we handle every aspect of the funding process in-house. That means a faster review and approval process.

After receiving an application, we contact the plaintiff’s attorney for some information on the case and to gather additional details. Then, our underwriters will use the information to make a funding decision. Once an application is approved, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. The cash advance is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning that repayment is secured through the settlement and repayment is made an award or settlement is received. If the case is lost, the plaintiff keeps the cash advanced, no questions asked.

If you are seriously injured or lost a loved one in an auto-tractor trailer accident and filed a lawsuit, but the bills are piling up and you desperately need financial support, call Litigation Funding Corporation or apply online for a lawsuit cash advance.

Family Files Lawsuit Alleging Construction Company and Employee Negligence in Motorcycle Crash

March 28, 2017

The family of a motorcyclist killed in an auto accident last summer has filed a wrongful death and negligence lawsuit against a construction company and one of its employees.

The 25-year-old motorcyclist was riding is 2002 Suzuki when a flatbed truck turned left in front of him, without yielding. The motorcyclist slammed into the truck and lost control. He was run over by the rear passenger tire of the truck and sustained fatal injuries, according to reports. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The truck driver suffered minor injuries. He was ticketed three months after the crash for failure to yield while turning left.

According to the lawsuit, the truck driver allegedly failed to properly control the vehicle, failed to yield to oncoming traffic while turning left at an intersection, and was travelling at a speed greater than was reasonable given the traffic conditions.

The truck driver contends that he had been slowing to a stop, preparing to turn left, when he saw the motorcycle traveling toward him. He said the motorcyclist flashed his lights and slowed to allow the truck to continue its left turn, so he proceeded into the intersection, according to reports.

The lawsuit seeks compensation “in excess of the minimum jurisdictional amount,” plus the cost of the lawsuit. In this case, that’s in excess of $50,000, plus the lawsuit costs.

Now that a lawsuit has been filed, the family may wish to inquire about litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a viable choice for cash-strapped plaintiffs because it can help meet living expenses, pay for medical care and funeral expenses, and cover other daily needs. Eligibility is based on attorney representation and a strong case. Once these qualifications are met, the application process is quick and easy; it takes less than five minutes online or over the phone. Next, we will obtain basic information about the case from the plaintiff’s attorney.

Litigation funding is based solely on the merits of the lawsuit; credit rating or job status does not matter. After our underwriters review the information, if the case is approved, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment is made from the proceeds of the case, and there is obligation to repay the cash advance if the case is lost. That is correct – we only get paid back the cash advance if our client successfully settles.

Litigation funding might be just the answer if you have been injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident, your personal funds are running out, and your case has not settled.

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.

December 12, 2016

A multi-vehicle crash in Virginia Beach resulted in two deaths and six injuries after a Chrysler Pacifica crossed the median and struck a Lexus traveling in the opposite direction. The impact caused the Pacifica to flip in the air and hit a van. The driver of the Chrysler was treated for serious injuries; her passenger died at the scene. The driver of the Lexus also died at the scene; his wife was treated for injuries at a nearby hospital. The driver of the van, his wife, and their two young children were also transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries.

Wrongful death and serious injury accidents can often cause immediate and long-term financial problems. In order to avoid this situation, litigation funding may be an option.

If approved for funding, the lawsuit cash advance can be received within 24 – 48 hours. There is no need to worry about monthly payments because we are only paid once the case settles.

Driver Distraction May Have Been Cause In Fatal North Carolina Rollover Crash

December 6, 2016

A serious auto accident in Charlotte, N.C. resulted in one person dead and three others injured.
Police said a female driver lost control of her Ford Explorer and ran off the right side of the road. When she attempted to drive the vehicle back onto the road she overcorrected to the left, entering into oncoming traffic. Overcorrecting again, she lost control and rolled the car, before it came to a rest on its side approximately 30 feet off the road in a field. The front passenger died at the scene. The driver and two minors in the rear of the vehicle were transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver has been charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle.

The investigation is ongoing, but police said it doesn’t appear speed or alcohol were factors in this crash. Could it be another case of distracted driving?

Far too many serious and fatal crashes are caused due to a distracted driver, whether it be talking or texting on the phone, looking at a GPS, fidgeting with the radio or other controls, eating, and more. When a loved one is killed due to driver negligence, the family may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Life necessities won’t wait for a lawsuit to settle, but victims should also not be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar jut because of pressing financial needs. If the family retains an attorney and files a claim, they are eligible for litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a cash advance against a pending lawsuit to supplement loss of income, pay funeral expenses, pay down debt, and cover everyday living expenses in order to wait for fair compensation. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full case value.
The application process is quick and easy, with no cost to apply, no upfront fees, no monthly payments, no credit checks and no hassles. Once a plaintiff is approved for funding, the money arrives typically within 24-48 hours. Repayment of the cash advance is made from the case proceeds, but if the plaintiff is not successful, there is no obligation to pay us back.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another driver, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit, and experiencing financial hardship, consider litigation funding from Litigation Funding Corporation. We can be reached at 1-866-LIT-FUND or by completing our online contact form.

Lawsuits Pending Against Trucker and Trucking Companies In Chain-Reaction Crash That Killed Four

November 17, 2016

An Indiana truck driver charged in a 2014 crash that killed five people pleaded guilty to five counts of reckless homicide and one count of falsifying his driving log. He faces six to 28 years in prison, but prosecutors have agreed to seek no more than a 15-year sentence.

On July 21, 2014, the truck driver entered a construction zone where traffic had slowed to 3 – 5 miles per hour. The trucker, however, had set his cruise control and was driving 65 mph when he entered the area, causing a chain-reaction crash that killed four people, including an 11-year-old girl. Four others (a woman and her three teens) were hospitalized with injuries.

Two lawsuits filed by families of the victims are pending in federal court. The lawsuits name the truck driver as well as Steel Warehouse, the company for which the trucker was hauling freight, and Eagle Transport, the company which leased him the semitrailer he was driving. The suits allege that the trucker was speeding through a construction zone, failed to keep a proper lookout for slowing or stopped vehicles, failed to slow down when a special hazard existed and had a physical condition — complete loss of vision in his right eye due to a 1984 injury — that limited his ability to drive safely. The plaintiffs also allege that he altered his driving log to make it appear as if he started work later in the day than he actually did. According to investigators, the truck driver began his workday at 2:30 a.m. when he picked up a load of steel at a warehouse in South Bend, Ind. His log book, however, showed he started at 6:15 a.m. Under federal law, commercial truck drivers are limited to working 14 hours a day, including a maximum of 11 behind the wheel. A hearing date is set for December 6.

Litigation Funding Corporation understands how difficult the litigation process and how a financial strain during times like this not only seriously impacts one’s life, but also a case. Litigation funding gives plaintiffs leverage against the insurance company and prevents them from being forced to take inadequate offers. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than full case value.

Funding decisions are based on the strength of the case, not credit or work history. Once an application is completed and approved, the lawsuit cash advance can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Our only requirement is that the plaintiff is represented by an attorney and that the case has merit. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, so nothing is paid back until the case is settled. If, for some reason, our client loses, the repayment is completely waived.

If you are in need of a cash flow solution during a pending litigation, litigation funding may be a viable option to removing the financial pressure and giving your attorney the time needed to fully pursue your case. Contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation or complete our online application; it takes less than 5 minutes.

Litigation Funding Prevents Corporate Defense Attorneys From Forcing Plaintiffs To Settle Prematurely

November 4, 2016

When a victim has been involved in an accident involving a tractor trailer, it often times causes serious injuries leading to long-term medical treatment and or emotional and mental pain and suffering. During the litigation process, the victim’s attorney must prove the driver of the tractor trailer was negligent or careless at the time of the accident. This could take months, even years. While the victim’s attorney fights for compensation, litigation funding can help ease the financial burdens.

A West Virginia couple has filed a lawsuit against a trucking company and its driver alleging negligence after the woman’s vehicle was hit at a gas station, causing her serious injuries. The complaint alleges that the woman was parked in the parking lot of the gas station when the driver of the tractor trailer was turning around and struck her car. The lawsuit alleges that as a result the woman suffered physical and mental pain, loss of service and companionship, and incurred significant medical expenses. The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek an undisclosed amount in compensatory damages and punitive damages.

We make the application and approval process quick and easy. Plaintiffs can simply complete our online application or call our office.

Litigation funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, so nothing is paid back until a settlement is reached.

If you are injured in a tractor trailer accident, and struggling financially, let litigation funding remove the financial pressure and gives you and your attorney the time needed to fully pursue your case.

Two Families Filed Lawsuit in Palm Springs Tour Bus Fatal Crash

October 31, 2016

The families of two victims in last week’s deadly bus crash near Palm Springs have a filed lawsuit against the bus company and the estate of the bus driver. The suit claims the bus driver failed to travel at a safe speed and failed to brake to avoid the crash. It also claims that the bus was not properly maintained

Thirteen people were killed and 31 others injured after the bus slammed into the back of a big rig. The bus was carrying 44 passengers who were returning from a trip to the casino. The driver was one of the owners of the bus company, which typically ferries people from LA to nearby casinos. The impact pushed the trailer about 15 feet into the bus. It took nearly two hours to separate the vehicles.

The National Transportation Safety Board this week said the bus did not comply with vehicle safety standards because two of its eight tires lacked sufficient tread. As a federal probe into the crash continues, an attorney for the plaintiffs said that there is also reason to believe that the tractor trailer driver may be at fault. According to a witness, I-10 was shut down in both directions and the truck was parked in an active lane with the headlights off when the crash occurred. There were no flashing lights; all that was illuminating was the parking brakes. The investigation is ongoing; the families’ attorneys are simultaneously conducting an independent investigation.

Wrongful death cases are never easy for the families of the deceased, but filing them may serve to provide necessary financial resources for support in the absence of a family breadwinner. Although a lawsuit will not bring a loved one back, it may provide the added benefit of reducing the chances that a similar occurrence will happen to someone else. While awaiting the resolution of a wrongful death lawsuit, the deceased’s family may have difficulties making ends meet. In a lawsuit setting, this type of financial distress is often alleviated when a family seeks litigation funding.

Litigation funding can help provide the means for a victim’s loved ones to get through the long haul of a wrongful death lawsuit without feeling pressured to settle due to financial burdens. Instead, they can allow their attorney to reach a fair settlement, more representative of the true extent of damages.

After receiving a funding application and applicable case documentation, Litigation Funding Corporation can typically make a funding decision in less than 24 hours because we do not require a credit check or employment verification. Funding is based solely on the strength of the case being offered as collateral. Funding also comes with zero risk for the plaintiff. Repayment of the cash advance is only made when the case successfully settles. If the plaintiff loses, the cash advance is waived in its entirety. There are also no specific restrictions on how the money is used.

If a loved one was fatally injured by the negligence or wrongdoing of another and you have filed a lawsuit but struggling financially to see your case through to the end, you may qualify for litigation funding against the future proceeds of your claim. Contact Litigation Funding Corporation for a free case evaluation.
