Texas Nursing Home Resident Allegedly Beaten by Nursing Assistant

October 31, 2018

The family of a nursing home resident planned to celebrate their father’s 84th birthday, but when they arrived at the facility they found him beaten and bruised. Although staff said the cause was an incident with the man’s roommate, police believe the resident may have been beaten by a nursing assistant.

According to an investigation earlier this year by Texas Health and Human Services, 12 violations were cited at the nursing home — seven were “life safety violations,” and five were health violations where inspectors stated, “the facility did not protect each resident from all abuse, physical punishment, and being separated from others.” Several violations have allegedly yet to be remedied. The facility was also cited because it “failed to have written rules against mistreating, neglecting, and abusing residents, and mishandling residents’ property.”

The family may wish to seek compensation for their father’s injuries by filing a personal injury lawsuit. However, they may find that they are unable to cope financially while waiting out the litigation process against high-powered defendants. In that case, litigation funding may be a good option.

Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance for life needs when plaintiffs may not be able to find money elsewhere, such as family or friends or a traditional bank loan. It can mean the difference between paying the rent or facing eviction. A lawsuit cash advance can also level the playing field until justice is served.

A seriously injured plaintiff who has hired an attorney, and has a strong case with merit is eligible for litigation funding. Applying for a cash advance against a future settlement is fast and easy. There is no cost to apply and no up-front or out-of-pocket expenses. Litigation Funding Corporation will work with your attorney to review your case and reach a funding decision in less than 48 hours.

Pre-settlement funding, or a lawsuit loan, is a non-recourse cash advance tied to the personal injury claim. Repayment is only due once the case successfully settles. The attorney handles the repayment through the case proceeds. If there is no recovery, repayment of the lawsuit loan is completely waived, making it a virtually risk-free cash advance for the plaintiff.

If you have a personal injury case and questions regarding pre-settlement funding, call Litigation Funding Corporation, toll-free at 1-866-548-3863.

Troy Gentry’s Widow Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Helicopter Crash

April 17, 2018

The widow of a country music star filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the makers of a helicopter that spun out of control and crashed, killing all onboard.

The lawsuit names three defendants, the helicopter companies, and claims that they failed to make Model 269 crashworthy, despite knowing the same model, but a military version, had been updated several years earlier. Court documents claim that at the moment the helicopter took off, the throttle cable jammed, throwing the engine into high gear.

The lawsuit states that due to engine defects, the helicopter could not enter autorotation, did not disengage from the transmission as expected causing the rotors to slow to an unsafe speed, causing the craft to immediately drop to the ground.

A wrongful death suit can be filed when a loved one is killed due the negligence of another party or parties. These claims, however, can take years to settle, leaving family members financially strapped. If there are no other sources of funding, such as life insurance or a sympathetic relative, the plaintiff may be eligible for litigation funding, also referred to as pre-settlement funding.

Litigation Funding Corporation assesses the potential case value and case success to determine if they can provide a plaintiff with a lawsuit cash advance. The primary goal of strategic litigation financing is to remove or reduce the financial pressure on plaintiffs who often settle too soon and for too little.

The litigation funding, application process is simple and if approved, the lawsuit cash advance can be available quickly. Upon approval and a signed contract, the funds can be sent within 24 – 48 hours by check or by wire. The plaintiff can use the funding immediately to pay medical bills, funeral expenses, monthly financial obligations or other costs. A lawsuit cash advance is 100 percent risk-free. If the case is lost in court, litigation funding clients do not need to repay the cash advance.

Litigation Funding Corporation underwrites hundreds of transactions such as this one. A lawsuit cash advance may also be available for auto accidents, premises liability lawsuits, medical malpractice claims, product liability cases, and airplane and train crashes.

Twice Misdiagnosed, Man Dies of Aortic Dissection

May 31, 2017

A Utah man went to a medical clinic in November 2011 complaining of chest pain that radiated to his abdomen. He was initially diagnosed as having constipation.

A 55-year-old driver for the Utah Transit Authority experienced pain in his chest and abdomen that prompted him to go to a local medical clinic. The man was seen by a physician’s assistant (PA). The PA diagnosed him as having constipation. No tests, such as an EKG or chest radiographs, were ordered and he was not sent to the E.R.

The man’s pain continued for more than a week and he went back to the medical clinic and was seen by a different PA. He was once again diagnosed with stomach pain and constipation. No further tests were ordered. Four days later, the patient died of aortic dissection. His wife filed a medical malpractice lawsuit. The jury delivered a verdict of $2.9 million with a finding that the medical clinic was 70 percent at fault and had breached the standard of care and that the patient was 30 percent at fault for not going to the E.R. on his own.

If you suffered a serious personal injury or a loved one died as a result of alleged medical negligence, hiring an experienced lawyer could make a difference in the outcome of your case. If you do not have a lawyer and do not know where to find one, Litigation Funding Corporation can assist you in obtaining one, no matter what state you reside in. Once you have an attorney-of-record, the litigation process begins but may take many months or years to resolve.

For victims of medical negligence, litigation funding, also referred to as a “lawsuit loan,” is the only option they may have to avoid exhausting their financial resources. By applying for pre-settlement funding an approved plaintiff receives non-recourse funds in advance of their lawsuit. Non-recourse funding is contingent on the outcome of the case and repayment is only made if the case is won and compensation awarded.

Investigation Underway Into Virginia Beach Multi-Vehicle Crash That Killed Two and Injured Six Others

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.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation to determine if speed, driver distraction, or other factors played a role in this fatal crash. No matter what, it is always difficult to hear about the loss of a loved one in an auto accident. During this time, the last thing these families need is to be faced with legal and financial issues, but it is important to contact an experienced auto accident attorney to understand their rights. An attorney can help recover compensation for medical expenses, funeral expenses, and pain and suffering.

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.

Litigation funding is a valuable service that helps plaintiffs pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and ongoing monthly bills during the litigation process so they are not forced to settle their valuable case for less than it is worth. The application process is quick, easy, and free! Qualifying for funding is based on a strong case and attorney representation. 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. If the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived.

Suffering injuries or the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; don’t succumb to a financial hardship as well. If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident, do not resolve your case for less than full value because of pressing financial needs. Consult an attorney to protect your legal rights. Then, call Litigation Funding Corporation to ease your financial burden and give your attorney the time needed to obtain full value on your case.

Mom Who Saw Son Die After Their Car Was Struck By A Tree Files Lawsuit

December 5, 2016

When trees cause harm in a weather related event, liability is a gray area. Since no one controls the weather, it is often not an issue of liability for the tree owner. On the contrary, if the property owners were negligent in caring and maintaining a tree, they can be held liable for serious injuries or death.

It was a stormy, windy night on December 11, 2014 when an Oregon woman’s car was struck by a tree. Investigators said after the tree fell on the vehicle, the female driver swerved and hit another tree. She and her 11-year-old son were trapped in the vehicle for some time before emergency responders could extricate them. The young boy died at the scene. The woman suffered serious injuries that led to multiple surgeries and months of rehabilitation. She has not been able to return to work.

Two lawsuits have been filed against the property owners. The first suit was made on behalf of their son’s estate. The lawsuit seeks $500,000 for the boy’s pain and suffering, as well as $2 million for medical expenses, funeral expenses and future earnings over his expected lifespan. Recently, the woman filed a claim seeking $5 million for her emotional suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, counseling and other costs. Both lawsuits claim the property owners knew or should have known the cedar tree was dead and a grave risk to public safety. The suits allege the dangerous condition of the tree was obvious to any “reasonable person” who looked at it because it showed signs of “damage or decay, including substantial discoloration.”

Seeking compensation will not bring this child back or take away the pain and suffering this woman has endured, but it will help cover funeral expenses, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Unfortunately, tragedies like this will often cause family members to struggle financially because such cases can be contentious and often take years to resolve. With a solid lawsuit as collateral, the couple could apply for a litigation funding; an emergency cash advance to keep afloat financially while awaiting a settlement.

Applying and receiving a lawsuit cash advance can all take place in less than 48 hours, contingent upon receipt of case documentation from the plaintiff’s attorney. The reason we can fund case so quickly is because there is no need for a credit check or employment verification; we only care about the strength of the case. Best of all, there are no payments until the lawsuit settles, at which time we are repaid from the case proceeds. Should the plaintiff lose the case, we completely excuse the obligation to repay.

Don’t struggle financially during your pending claim and don’t settle for less than you deserve when our services may be a valuable asset to you. If you have sustained significant injuries, or lost a loved one, due to the negligence of someone else and need financial assistance, contact Litigation Funding Corporation by completing our online application or calling us toll-free at 1-866-LITFUND.

Litigation Funding Removes The Financial Stress Associated With A Personal Injury Lawsuit

October 11, 2016

A personal injury is that life-changing moment when you are seriously injured as the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. The most obvious example of this is an automobile accident.

An auto accident lawsuit begins by hiring the right attorney. If you don’t have an attorney, our lawsuit finance company can help you find one, within 24 hours, in all 50 states. This is a free service to you. Once you retain an attorney, he/she will notify the at-fault party and/or his/ her insurance company. The process of collecting evidence, seeking medical attention, and trying to get your life back to normal will begin. But, a settlement could be years away. What if your injuries preclude you from returning to work? What if you suffered short-term disability? What if you are permanently disabled? In addition to the physical and emotional pain, the last thing you need is financial devastation. While compensation from a lawsuit can help, a settlement could be years away. Where can you turn for help?

Typically, a bank will not provide a lawsuit loan. Even so, you would still be required to make monthly payments, furthering adding to already mounting debt. Borrowing from family or friends may not be an option either. At this point, you might be willing to settle for pennies on the dollar in order to avoid financial disaster. Did you know there might be a better solution – litigation funding?

Litigation funding is a cash advance against a pending lawsuit to stave off financial worries. Some call it a “lawsuit loan,” but here is why it is not a “loan.” There are no monthly payments which most victims obviously can’t afford. There are no credit checks so if the credit cards are already maxed out, it doesn’t matter. There is no employment verification so it doesn’t matter if victims are out of work due to injuries sustained. We fund strictly on the strength of your case. Repayment of the lawsuit cash advance is only made once the case is settled. Best of all, if the plaintiff loses, the re-payment is waived in its entirety.

Are you ready to find out if your personal injury lawsuit qualifies for litigation funding? Complete our online application or call our office. When all documents are received – an application and case documentation, our in-house underwriters will review your case and determine if funding is approved. If so, the money can be available in as little as 24 hours. For more information and to determine if litigation funding is a viable solution during your pending case, contact Litigation Funding Corporation.

Out of Control Driver Flees Scene after Fatally Striking Pedestrian, Injuring Three Others

July 18, 2016

A pedestrian was killed and a bicyclist was injured when a hit-and-run driver lost control of her vehicle and jumped the sidewalk, striking both women. The driver continued at a high rate of speed before colliding with two vehicles, a Mini Cooper and a Toyota Camry, that were stopped at a traffic light. When her car finally came to a stop, the driver fled the scene. She was later apprehended by police and charged with disobeying a red light and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.

The pedestrian suffered blunt force trauma to her head and was pronounced dead at the hospital; the cyclist suffered a fractured pelvis, broken leg, and other injuries. The driver of the Mini Cooper was transported to an area hospital; the Camry driver was treated at the scene and released.

The fact that the guilty driver has been charged does little to pay the bills for the victims. The deceased’s family members will probably in time file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent driver. One immediate problem they are facing is how to pay for funeral and burial expenses; the family is asking the public for financial support to defray the cost of her funeral and burial.

Wrongful death lawsuits can take up to several years to finally reach settlement. Meanwhile, plaintiffs still have to pay bills and meet their financial obligations. Once a claim is filed, the family would be eligible for auto accident litigation funding, a cash advance that can help defray expenses during a pending claim rather than risking their credit with mounting, unpaid bills.

Litigation Funding Corporation works fast to approve cases for funding — often within 24 hours –because there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. There are absolutely no restrictions on how the money is spent, and the money is only repaid once the case has concluded, either by settlement or otherwise. If our client loses the case, we completely waive repayment.

If you are the victim of an auto accident, have filed a lawsuit and need financial relief, complete our online contact form or call our office at 1.866.LIT.FUND to see if your case qualifies for litigation funding.

Avoid an Early Settlement with Litigation Funding

July 14, 2016

Millions of people are involved in auto accidents every year resulting in serious injuries and expensive medical treatments. While life is not easy after an auto accident, it is even harder to fight for a quick and fair settlement. The insurance company will fight to keep the money in their own pockets through deny, delay, and defend tactics, even when a claim is valid. Without financial resources to sustain oneself until a settlement is reached, plaintiffs may have two choices – accept a less than fair settlement or jeopardize their credit score. An alternative would be to contact Litigation Funding Corporation.

We believe being forced to settle for less than you deserve because you are in a financial bind is not seeking justice and could result in losing thousands, even millions of dollars of fair compensation. A non-recourse cash advance, commonly referred to as a “lawsuit loan”, is a risk-free means of paying your bills while allowing your case to proceed through the legal process. If you are financially stable, your attorney will have more time to negotiate a much larger settlement.

Unlike a bank loan, there is no employment or income verification and credit score doesn’t matter; funding is based solely on the strength of the case. Because litigation funding is a non-recourse cash advance, repayment only occurs once the case successfully settles; if the case is lost, nothing is paid back, not even the cash advance.

After receiving a funding application, one of our representatives will contact the plaintiffs’ attorney for applicable case documentation. If the funding request is approved, cash can be available in as little as 24 hours.
If you have suffered serious injuries in an auto accident due to the negligence of someone else, and medical expenses and the inability to work have resulted in financial duress, contact Litigation Funding Corporation. Simply complete the online funding application or call our office toll-free at 1-866-LIT-FUND. We will review your application, talk to your attorney, and do everything possible to provide the litigation funding you need when you need it most.

Mechanic’s Shoddy Safety Inspection Led to Fatal Auto Accident

August 13, 2015

Officials say a mechanic caused the death of an 83-year-old Vermont woman when the car she was in, which he had inspected, crashed because of brake failure. The woman and her husband were riding in their 1992 Chevy Corsica when the husband applied the brakes to avoid hitting a turning vehicle in front of them. He claims there was a “pop” and then the brakes would not work. When he swerved to avoid hitting the vehicle, the Corsica jumped a curb, plunged down an embankment, crossed a street and slammed into some tree stumps. The driver suffered minor injuries; his wife was pronounced dead at the hospital.

An investigation showed the brake lines and rocker panels were rusted, corroded, and in a visibly unsafe condition. The panels are meant to provide structural integrity for the car. According to the state Department of Motor Vehicles, the defects should have been discovered two months earlier during a state safety inspection by the mechanic. The mechanic has been arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment.

The victim’s family should contact an experienced auto accident attorney to understand their rights and to learn what legal remedies are available. After consulting with an attorney, if the family files a lawsuit they could face a long litigation process. To help with any immediate financial needs, the may want to consider litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a non-recourse cash advance against the future proceeds of the case. It is a means to ease the financial burden and give their attorney the time needed to obtain full case value. Litigation Funding Corporation, an auto accident litigation funding expert, offers funding services strictly on the merits and strength of the case so there is no need for credit checks or employment verification. We offer low rates, excellent customer service, and a quick and easy application process; we can almost always provide litigation funding in 24 to 48 hours. Best of all, our “lawsuit loans” are on a non-recourse basis meaning if our client loses the case, there is no obligation to repay the cash advance.

With litigation funding, why give in to corporate and insurance tactics pressuring you to settle for less? If you have been involved in an auto accident and are seeking a lawsuit cash advance, contact Litigation Funding Corporation or apply online for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Win Your Personal Injury Lawsuit with the Help of Litigation Funding

May 18, 2015

A personal injury can be a life-changing moment, leaving you with severe injuries and disabilities, as well as a financial and emotional stress as the bills pile up. Magnifying the situation is the deep pockets of insurance companies and corporations who try to extend the lawsuit and drag it out as part of their strategy. Defendants know it’s just a matter of time before a plaintiff’s financial situation becomes overwhelming. That’s when a settlement is offered and a vulnerable plaintiff will rationalize that “something is better than nothing.” A better solution is to keep the case strong with litigation funding.

Litigation funding can help plaintiff’s avoid financial ruin and pressures as they await a settlement in a long drawn-out legal case. When a funding company steps in and provides a lawsuit cash advance, it is not a loan. It is non-recourse funding meaning the money is advanced and is repaid if, and when, the lawsuit is settled or a verdict is reached. There is no credit check, employment history, or collateral required for approval. Funding is based solely on the strength of the case and can be obtained within 48 hours of the funding company receiving pertinent documentation.

Don’t settle for less compensation than you deserve. If you are a plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit and need litigation funding to help you stand up for your rights and fight your case, give us a call, toll free, at 1-866-548-3863.
