Plaintiffs of Helicopter Crash can Obtain Immediate Financial Relief with Pre-Settlement Litigation Funding

January 17, 2017

On April 4, 2016, a Bell 206-L helicopter on a sightseeing tour crashed before bursting into flames, killing the pilot and all four passengers on board. The helicopter was destroyed by fire. The crash also sparked a forest fire that created massive plumes of smoke.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said the helicopter hit the side of a mountain before it went down; the agency has yet to release a final report.

The first lawsuit was filed by the husband and mother of one of the victims. She had gone on the flight with her son, daughter, and her daughter’s boyfriend who were in town visiting the woman and her husband. The complaint alleges negligence on the part of the owner of the helicopter company, claiming that he failed to properly maintain the helicopter and ensure the pilot was competent. The lawsuit goes on to state “the helicopter crash and subsequent death of [his wife] were the direct and proximate result of the negligent acts and omissions and conduct of [the owner],” and his team.

Litigation resulting from a helicopter crash can take years before a settlement is reached. It is difficult enough to suffer the death of a loved from a helicopter crash; the last thing surviving family members should worry about is their finances.

For victims in need of financial relief, pre-settlement litigation funding is a viable option. With non-recourse funding from Litigation Funding Corporation, plaintiffs can get immediate cash to pay the mounting bills and to meet monthly living expenses. Our litigation funding services are provided on a non-recourse basis. There are no credit or employment requirements to be met and no monthly payments to make. Funding is based strictly on the strengths and merits of the lawsuit. Most importantly, if our client does not win or settle, repayment of the lawsuit cash advance is waived.

The application and approval process is quite simple. All it takes to get started is to complete a one-page application; we do the rest. We will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation, and typical make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. When the lawsuit successfully settles, we are repaid from the case proceeds. Again, if the case fails, the repayment is waived.

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in a crash, are currently involved in a drawn-out legal battle, have retained a contingent-fee attorney, have strong liability against a sufficiently insured defendant and need financial assistance, call Litigation Funding for a free analysis of your case funding situation.

Litigation Funding Corporation Provides Means for Auto Accident Victims to Decline a Low Settlement Offer

December 20, 2016

Auto accidents are the number one cause of personal injuries in the U.S., causing both physical and financial strain to a victim and his/her family. Yet, insurance companies, those that happily take policyholder’s premiums, will use deny, delay, and defend tactics in hopes that the victim will accept a low settlement offer. Victims may consider filing a personal injury lawsuit. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, plaintiffs will, in most circumstances, substantially increase the likelihood of success and the amount recoverable in the case. However, the legal process can be long and complex. A settlement won’t be received until the litigation process is completed, which could take months or years. In the meantime, plaintiffs still have to pay bills and meet their financial obligations. This will only add more financial stress. For those living paycheck to paycheck, any offer may be tempting to accept, but pre-settlement litigation funding is usually a better option.

To determine if litigation funding is right for you, consider these questions.
• Are you worried about financial issues resulting from your accident and injuries?
• Are you facing eviction, foreclosure, repossession of your vehicle?
• Are you unable to put food on the table, pay medical expenses or other necessities of life?
• Are you seriously considering settling your valuable case for any amount?

If you answered yes to most or all of these questions, you should investigate litigation funding.

The purpose of litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance, is to help plaintiffs with unexpected expenses as a result of an auto accident, as well as cover monthly household expenses. Unlike bank loans, litigation funding requires no application fee, no monthly payments, no credit check, and no employment verification. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles. Best of all, it is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning that should you lose your case, the cash advance is waived in its entirety; repayment is completely null and void.

If you are in need of financial assistance during a pending auto accident claim, complete our online application or call our office at 1.866.LIT.FUND. Once received, we will request case documentation from your attorney and make a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours. It really is that simple!

Elderly Man Files Premise Liability Lawsuit Against Wal-Mart

December 14, 2016

A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, inside or outside. It could be at the mall, grocery store, restaurant, or even someone’s home. It could be a sidewalk, parking lot, or city road. Wherever or however it takes place, slip and fall accidents can result in broken bones, brain injuries and paralysis. Because the burden of proof in these cases is difficult to overcome, premise liability claims typically require the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney. However, the wheels of justice turn very slowly and compensation sought could be months, even years away. A seriously injured or disabled person is at a significant disadvantage against a powerful, well-financed insurance company. Pre-settlement litigation funding is designed to provide an emergency financial lifeline.

An 88-year-old man has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart alleging failure to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition led to his injuries. The plaintiff alleges the superstore negligently chose not to repair the cart corral and failed to provide any warning about the danger of using it.

According to the complaint, on May 17, after returning a shopping cart to the cart corral, the man caught his foot on a disconnected metal ground plate and fell, striking his head on the ground and sustaining serious injuries. The lawsuit states the elderly man will continue to experience medical expenses, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life as a result.

The plaintiff seeks trial by jury and judgment for all damages he has sustained.

Litigation Funding Corporation is a reputable litigation funding company, with over 17 years’ experience helping personal injury plaintiffs with short-term financial needs. After filing a lawsuit, as long as the plaintiff has serious injuries and a strong case, we can often put cash in hand within 24 – 48 hours. Then, we simply wait until the case settles to be repaid, no matter how long it takes.

Litigation funding allows plaintiffs to pay the necessary bills – mortgage/rent, car payments, medical expenses, utilities, groceries, and other important financial obligations. This lawsuit cash advance is made against the future proceeds of the case and not valuable assets.

Litigation funding is similar to a loan, but better! There are no credit checks or employment verifications required to obtain funding and there are no monthly payments. Funding is approved solely on the strength of the case. We are repaid from the proceeds of the settlement, but if it is lost, we completely waive repayment of the cash advance – no principal, no interest, nothing!

Waiting for a settlement from a premises negligence lawsuit, but need money now to pay your bills? Apply now for a lawsuit cash advance from Litigation Funding Corporation. Our online application takes less than five minutes or give us a call to apply by phone.

In a Pending Lawsuit, Pre-Settlement Litigation Funding Can Make a Difference

June 9, 2015

Every day innocent victims are injured or die due to the negligence of someone else. It can be the result of an auto accident, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, or product liability. When people think of filing a lawsuit, they anticipate the settlement but fail to consider the time it might take to achieve justice. In the battle for monetary damages, insurance companies have significant economic advantages over injured plaintiffs and often use plaintiffs’ economic hardships to their benefit. To help with financial obligations, plaintiffs can deplete savings or borrow the money from family or friends, both risky options. A risk-free alternative is pre-settlement litigation funding.

For plaintiffs with lost income and mounting expenses, litigation funding is sometimes their only access to cash; many victims do not have good credit and/or income to qualify them for a traditional loan. By removing a plaintiff’s financial burden, litigation funding enables a lawsuit to be resolved on its true merits. The best part of all, a pre-settlement cash advance is contingent upon the outcome of the case. That means if the plaintiff loses their case, they do not have to pay the money back. Litigation Funding Corporation does not require credit checks or employment verification. Instead, funding is based solely on the strength of a case. Once approved, funds can be available within 24 -48 hours.

Finances shouldn’t be a pressing concern during a lawsuit. If you have a pending lawsuit and need quick cash to cover outstanding bills, don’t let the wealthy defendants – big business and insurance companies – force you to settle for less than your case is worth. Litigation funding could be the lifeline you need to level the playing field and wait for justice.
