Securing Lawsuit Financing Could Secure a Favorable Settlement

December 18, 2014

Much goes into negotiating an insurance settlement and trying a personal injury lawsuit. After you have been in an automobile accident, taking on this time-consuming task is the last thing you want to do. An experienced attorney can even the playing field, especially when you are going up against a big insurance company. Lawsuit funding can help you avoid settling for less than you deserve.

An attorney is essential in obtaining a reasonable and fair resolution in your auto accident case. A full recovery of compensation may include:

• medical & hospital expenses
• loss of wages
• physical therapy
• pain and suffering

But, filing a lawsuit is only the first step. How will you pay the bills while waiting for a settlement? During this time, finances should not be a pressing concern. You may need to concentrate on recovering from injuries and giving your attorney time to strengthen the merits of your case. Enter lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a way to obtain quick access to cash without the need for monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. Best of all, lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse basis. This means you will only be responsible for paying back the advance if you win your case. If you lose, you owe nothing. If you are currently in the process of an injury claim or lawsuit and interested in lawsuit funding against your case, contact us today. If approved, you could have cash as quickly as tomorrow.

Long Island Cesspool Explosion Sparks Dueling Lawsuits

September 29, 2014

If you or a loved one has been involved in a blast injury resulting to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, you may be entitled to compensatory damage for medical bills, physical and emotional injuries, pain and suffering, lost earnings, and other expenses through a personal injury lawsuit. An experienced attorney can guide you through the process and make sure justice is pursued. If you are going through litigation for a blast injury and searching for lawsuit funding, contact Litigation Funding Corp.

A cesspool cleaner was hired by a homeowner in December 2011 to clear a sewer system blockage, but when he lifted the sewer lid an explosion occurred, leaving the man with severe facial burns. Also seriously injured was the son of the homeowner, who was visiting his mother and helped the contractor lift the heavy lid.
The contractor filed a lawsuit alleging homeowner negligence for pouring a chemical cleaner in the toilet that caused a buildup of methane in the tank. That lawsuit sparked one by the homeowner’s son, who alleged the sewer guy “addressed the sewer system blockage in a negligent and careless manner.” He also named is mother as a defendant, which is legally required because she owned the property. According to his attorney, the man is not seeking monetary damages from his mother.

While the homeowner admits to using a chemical in the cesspool three days prior to the explosion, she and her son allege the cesspool cleaner also put in a chemical. The claim against the sewer worker contends that the man was struggling to remove the heavy lid with a large, metal pry bar. The friction between the metal tool and the stone lid apparently sparked the methane gas that had been building up from a clog in the sewer line. The suit also alleges the sewer contractor was operating a business without the proper training and required government licenses, and was “falsely representing himself to be knowledgeable, experienced, competent and highly trained in the field of sewer system repairs.”

Cases like this take time and incredible amounts of resources to reach a settlement. Burn victims suffer a great deal due to the time it takes to heal; some suffer emotional and sociological problems after such trauma. Injuries may be life-long so it is important to seek compensation for future care and medical bills. For many victims, waiting for fair compensation is not a viable option if foreclosure, eviction, medical expenses, and debt collectors are looming. In order to avoid financial hardship, Litigation Funding Corp. provides a lawsuit cash advance to prevent plaintiffs from settling for less than full case value. Lawsuit funding is designed to help plaintiffs pay medical expenses, funeral expenses, mortgage, and those monthly bills that pile up during the litigation process. It puts time in the hands of the plaintiff to await justice.

If you have been the victim of gas explosion resulting to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, and seeking compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, you may also qualify for lawsuit funding. The transaction is risk-free and clients often obtain money within 24 – 48 hours. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis and is completely contingent on the outcome of the lawsuit. If the lawsuit fails, the cash advance is completely excused. There are no upfront fees and no monthly payments. Credit and employment do not matter because we focus on the case and the case, alone.

A Lawsuit is Stressful Enough; Let Lawsuit Funding Ease the Financial Challenges

February 11, 2014

Filing a personal injury lawsuit can be emotionally, physically, and financially stressful, but what happens when the negligence leads to serious injury, loss of income, or other damages? A lawsuit is intended to compensate innocent victims, but the lawsuit can take months, even years to work its way through the legal process. In the meantime, a plaintiff may be faced with mounting bills – medical expenses, mortgage or rent payments, auto payments, tuition, or daily household expenses especially one who has suffered an injury and cannot return to work. For some, even putting food on the table can be a challenge.

Lawsuit funding is not a familiar term to many people involved in a lawsuit, yet it can make the difference in a plaintiff’s financial well-being. Plaintiffs have fewer resources than the large corporations and insurance companies putting the plaintiff in a vulnerable position, especially when a case drags on for years. When a deep-pocket defendant delays proceedings or drags out a case, it makes a financially strapped plaintiff vulnerable, and one who will consider accepting a less than favorable settlement. Lawsuit funding provides the much needed cash when the plaintiff needs it most. With a lawsuit cash advance, the victim can focus on seeking treatment and healing from injuries, rather than worrying about how to pay the mortgage or feed the family.

Plaintiffs may be eligible for a lawsuit cash advance at any point between when s/he filed a lawsuit and the time the case is settled. Obtaining funding is quick and easy with no credit checks or employment verification. Additionally, there are no monthly fees or other out-of-pocket expenses. With the cooperation of the plaintiff’s attorney, an application can be reviewed and approved in as little as 24 hours. Best of all, lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning repayment is only made once the case successfully settles; if the plaintiff loses the case, repayment is waived.

If you are in the midst of a personal injury lawsuit and need financial assistance, lawsuit funding may be the right choice for you. For more information, call Litigation Funding Corp. at 1-866-548-3863 or visit us online.

Motorists at Risk of Serious or Fatal Accident During Deer Season

January 4, 2012

A 19-year-old Wisconsin driver was transported to the hospital with undetermined injuries following a one-vehicle rollover accident at approximately 5:20 p.m. on December 28. Although the accident is still under investigation, it appears that the driver lost control of his vehicle when he swerved to avoid hitting a deer. His Plymouth Neo flipped several times before landing in a ditch.

As roads are built through rural areas, wildlife habitat decreases and automobile travel increases. When this happens, the risk of deer-auto accidents increases; many result in serious injuries even death to drivers and passengers. Typically, deer-auto accidents occur between October and December, with most accidents between dusk and dawn.

It is hard to imagine yourself or someone you love being seriously injured or killed in a deer-auto accident, but they can, and do happen. As in any situation, attentive driving is the best way to avoid an auto accident with a deer. Additionally, motorists can minimize the risk of a serious or fatal accident by staying alert and being especially watchful in areas near woods and water. Remember that if you see one deer, there are probably others nearby. Pay particular attention at dusk and dawn. Maintaining a safe speed will also increase your chances of avoiding an auto accident with a deer.

Drivers should never swerve to avoid hitting a deer. If you think you have time to avoid hitting an animal, reduce speed, tap the brakes to warn drivers behind you, and sound your horn. Swerving to miss a deer can potentially put you at risk for hitting another vehicle or losing control of your own car. Your odds of surviving an accident are better hitting an animal than another vehicle. And, don’t forget to always wear your seatbelt. Reports show that 60% of fatal accidents with deer were the result of people not wearing a seatbelt.

Litigation Funding Corp. strongly encourages motorists to buckle up, stay alert of your surroundings, and avoid driver distractions especially throughout the winter months.

Only in Texas? Bull Causes Fatal Automobile Accident

August 3, 2010

Does one drive to work thinking “I may encounter a bull in the road today”? Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened in this case. A border patrol agent from Encino, Texas was out on patrol when he observed a driver veer off the road and slam into a tree. The driver was trying to avoid a loose bull on the road; his evasive action at 65 mph resulted in this fatality.

A passenger in the vehicle was airlifted to the nearest hospital with possible traumatic brain injury. Neither of the occupants was wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. A brain damage victim almost always has a very long road to recovery.

This victim may well wish to discuss his situation with a personal injury lawyer who specializes in automobile accident cases. In most areas, farmers are responsible for their livestock and this may factor into the case once the bull’s owner is located. Certainly there will be questions about the speed the driver was traveling on a rural gravel road and whether or not the car was defective in some way – brakes, steering, suspension or tires.

If litigation is pursued and a lawyer is retained, this family might wish to apply for litigation funding to help pay important bills and expenses until their case is resolved. A lawsuit cash advance is available to eligible accident victims; the application process for lawsuit funding is quick and easy and, if a victim is approved, a lawsuit cash advance will arrive within 24-48 hours.

It is free to apply for legal finance; the strategic advantage to obtaining pre-settlement funding is that it permits accident victims to wait for a fair resolution and not have to settle for chump change from an insurance company because they need cash immediately. It is certainly something to think about when the time comes

Slip and Fall Accident on Movie Set Causes Serious Injury

July 24, 2010

This slip and fall accident happened on the set of a movie and involved a set of fake trolley tracks. The set of the show “Public Enemies” had a 1930s flavor to it and to that end, there were rubber cobblestones and trolley tracks on location. As a man was crossing the street near the filming location, he stepped on the fake rubber cobblestones, causing his feet to sink into the rubber. At the same time, his left foot got caught under the metal trolley tracks. As he fell, he was severely injured.

After the accident, the man called a personal injury lawyer and filed a lawsuit alleging there were no warning signs, barriers or other caution signs to let people know about the fake stones and the tracks. The lawsuit seeks compensation for permanent physical injuries, which were not specified in the court documents.

This unfortunate victim might want to find out if he is eligible for lawsuit funding. If he is, he would be able to handle his immediate medical expenses, therapy and other costs related to his accident, as well as other financial obligations. Getting approved for a lawsuit cash advance would let him wait for a decent settlement or court verdict instead of having to take the first offer that comes along.
A “lawsuit loan” costs nothing to apply for and if eligible, this plaintiff would get his funds within 24-48 hours by check or wire. He doesn’t need to have a job to apply and doesn’t need to have a credit check done either. The pre-settlement funding is advanced to him based on what his expected court settlement may be. It might be worth his while to do some research into legal finance services

TRAX Train Crash Kills Two; Severely Injures Two More

July 14, 2010

No one will really know why a young man decided to try to cross railway tracks while the crossing arm was coming down and signaling an oncoming train. The man was trying to maneuver around the barrier when the car he was driving, which belonged to his father, was hit by a TRAX train. The impact of this auto-train collision killed the young driver and a passenger; two other passengers were critically injured.

The family of one of the injured passengers has filed a personal injury lawsuit naming the driver, his father and his father’s employer (I presume the vehicle was owned by the company for the father’s use). The suit alleges the father let his son drive despite his bad driving record and habit of not paying attention to traffic rules. The young plaintiff was permanently injured in the auto-train collision.

It is likely that the other families of the other victims will consider pursuing lawsuits, as well. This was a horrific crash and they are entitled to seek compensation for their losses.

After all victims retain counsel and pursue lawsuits, they and their families may want to ask questions about the possibility of accessing lawsuit funding. A “litigation loan” could be a smart move for a family wondering how they were going to pay for the care of their injured child for the rest of their lives.

Pre-settlement funding is something that lets the victims deal with their medical expenses, therapy, etc., right away and then take care of other pressing financial business, like the mortgage and car payments.

A lawsuit cash advance will help them wait for a just and equitable verdict in their favor; it they are approved, funding can be completed within 24-48 hours, by check or wire. It is free to apply and funds are only required to be repaid if the case is settled or won. If you lose the case, the money is yours to keep, free of charge.

Cop Hits Biker; Biker Gets $300,000

May 19, 2010

This motorcycle-automobile accident case was eventually settled for $300,000. It was a bit unusual, as it was filed against a city because the person involved in the accident was a police officer. The officer was not the biker; the officer was driving the car that was hit by biker.

Here is how it happened: The biker was on his way westbound when a city police cruiser crossed right in front of him (across two lanes) without signaling and without the use of his siren. Witnesses said the biker went out of his way to try and avoid a collision but couldn’t make it happen. He hit the cruiser going 30 mph. the EMS crews at the scene were sure he was brain dead because his injuries were so severe.

The biker sustained severe traumatic brain injuries and head trauma, back and spine injuries and a broken leg. He was eventually diagnosed with cognitive disorder as a result of his traumatic brain injuries. Due to that diagnosis, a personal injury lawsuit was filed against the city. The decision was in favor of the plaintiff who will need care for the rest of his life.

While he may not have known this, the biker and his family, would likely have been eligible to apply for litigation funding. It would have allowed them to be able to wait for a fair and equitable settlement or court verdict. They would be able to pay medical expenses, deal with on-going therapy, pay for medications and other operations, as well as special equipment and life counseling. In addition, lawsuit funding would help pay for ordinary bills and expenses while they wait for justice.

A lawsuit cash advance is money given out in advance of a settlement and is based on the amount the personal injury lawyer feels the courts will award. People who apply for it don’t need to have a job, and don’t need a credit check either. Lawsuit funding usually arrives in about 48 hours or less after you have been approved.

Traumatic Brain Injury: A Silent Menace

April 26, 2010

Every year at least 1.4 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Unfortunately, almost 50,000 people die as a result of their injuries. Most often injuries like this occur from of a blow or impact to the head; most often from an automobile accident. It may surprise you to discover that many brain injuries result from medical malpractice. A TBI may result when a doctor provides substandard care to the patient. This is a form of negligence and may come in many forms. A misdiagnoses or non- diagnoses of a condition, improperly administered anesthesia, a surgical accident (a slip of the scalpel while working on the brain) or some interruption of blood flow to the brain are just a few examples. Anytime someone has a brain injury, the consequences are always serious and in many instances, life-altering.

In any case that involves head trauma, aneurysms or brain tumors, severe brain injury or death may be the end result if the condition is left untreated. Injuries of this nature have devastating consequences for those who have been hurt, and affect many areas of their lives. Victims may be dealing with speech impediments, paralysis, chronic pain, seizures, depression and astronomical medical bills. In addition, brain injuries impact on the whole family.

If the TBI was caused by an auto accident, slip and fall, or medical malpractice, a personal injury lawsuit is often filed by the victim/plaintiff; personal injury litigation takes a long time to resolve and TBI are often disabled as the result of their injuries. These litigants and their attorneys may be interested to know that they may be able to access lawsuit funding during the course of their litigation, to assist them, financially. Litigation funding is money given in the form of a lawsuit cash advance against the future settlement or verdict expected, or predicted by your attorney. The victim may use this lawsuit cash advance to pay mortgage payments, car payments and other important bills and expenses. They can also pay for medical or physical therapy treatments while they await settlement. And lawsuit financing is contingent upon recovery; if you lose your case you do not have to repay the money. The application process is simple; you can apply for free by phone or on the internet. Legal finance might make a huge difference in the bottom line in your case.
