Usher Blames Theatre for Slip and Fall

March 16, 2017

A woman was volunteering as an usher at a Houston theatre when she fell from the stairs area, suffering serious injuries. She has filed a lawsuit against the theatre group managers, alleging negligence for failing to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition, failing to warn employees, volunteers, and theatre-goers of the dangerous condition, and failing to inspect the premises for any dangerous condition that existed. The lawsuit seeks a trial by jury.

Damages in slip and fall accidents are based on the extent of the actual injuries and can include medical expenses, pain and suffering, or mental anguish. Slip and fall cases fall under premise liability with most cases settling out of court. Other times, victims find themselves in the throes of a length legal battles and struggling to pay the bills. This problem can be aggravated by the length of time it takes to receive a settlement.

When premise liability plaintiffs are left without the financial means to pay bills and take care of their families, litigation funding can help bridge the gap while the case resolves in court.

The first step is to complete a one-page request for funding application online or over the phone. The application is free and there are no credit checks, employment verification, or hidden fees. If your case appears strong, we will award a cash advance based on the anticipated proceeds of the future settlement or jury award. This is often done within 24 – 48 hours of receiving an application for funding. Additionally, litigation funding is absolutely risk-free. If you don’t settle or collect damages on your lawsuit, you are under no obligation to repay the cash advanced. What better way is there to get the peace of mind you deserve in your time of need?

Litigation Funding may be an Emergency Lifeline for Customer Suing Restaurant for Parking Lot Fall

March 2, 2017

You have the reasonable expectation that you will be safe while on someone else’s property, but this is not always the case. Premise liability is an area of law that deals with injuries incurred due to the negligence of a property owner. It could be a homeowner or business establishment, such as a restaurant or grocery store.

A New Orleans woman recently filed a lawsuit alleging property owner negligence led to her injuries.
Last March the woman was walking in the restaurant parking lot when she tripped and fell on a large crack in the concrete. As a result, she required medical attention and suffered a fracture in her left humeral shaft.
According to the lawsuit, the defendant is accused of negligently failing to protect its customers, allowing a dangerous condition to exist, failing to warn of the danger, and failing to maintain the property. The plaintiff seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

When a property owner’s negligence causes harm, victims may find themselves in the middle of a premises liability lawsuit. However, the wheels of justice turn very slowly and the compensation sought could be months, even years away. A seriously injured or disabled person, one not working as a result of an accident, is at a significant disadvantage against a powerful, well-financed corporation and its insurance company. They will deliberately drag their feet to make the injury victim desperate to resolve the case. When premise liability plaintiffs are left without the financial means to pay bills and take care of their families, litigation funding can help fill the void until a fair settlement is reached.

Here’s how it works! First, the plaintiff completes a one-page request for funding application online or over the phone. There are no application or upfront fees, and there is no need to be employed or have good credit. Next, Litigation Funding Corporation will request pertinent documentation to determine case strength. If the case appears strong and winnable, we will likely approve the plaintiff for funding. Once a contract is signed, the cash advance is sent via direct deposit or wire transfer within 48 hours. There are no monthly payments; the advance is repaid only when the case settles. If the case is lost, repayment is completely waived – guaranteed!

If you are involved in a pending slip-and-fall/premises liability case and need financial assistance, litigation funding may just be the answer you are looking for and the support you desperately need. Call Litigation Funding Corporation to learn more or to get started.

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.

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.

Guest Claims Hotel Concealed a Hole with Carpet, Leading to Her Fall and Injuries

November 30, 2016

Property owners have a duty to maintain and inspect their premise for problems and to warn of hazardous conditions. If they shirk these responsibilities, owners are responsible for any injuries that occur due to the properties’ hazardous conditions. Injuries sustained due to slips, falls and trips could result in physical, psychological, and financial distress. Litigation funding can ease the financial burden during a pending lawsuit and allow the slip and fall victim to stay the course and receive the compensation deserved.

A woman has filed a lawsuit against a hotel chain, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries, liability and negligence. The complaint file earlier this month alleges that the defendant used carpet to conceal a hole in the floor of their property. The plaintiff contends that she sustained physical injuries to her head, body and limbs as a result. She seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000.

The combination of loss of wages and mounting medical bills can prove financially devastating to the injured and their families, especially when a lawsuit is not quickly resolved. Property owners often deny responsibility by placing the fault on the plaintiff. This common line of defense often results in litigation that can last several years.

Litigation funding is a simple, easy way to get fast cash from your pending slip and fall lawsuit, as long as you have serious injuries and strong case. In fact, we can often put cash in your hands within 24-48. A cash advance can help pay immediate financial obligations such as mortgage/rent, medical bills, car payments, utilities, and food.

Fire Captain Loses Life Due To Grandfather Clause

August 4, 2011

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Asheville Fire and Police Departments have determined that the tragic fire on July 28th, at a Medical Office Complex in Asheville, NC. was deliberately set. A Fire Department Captain was suffered cardiac arrest and died battling the flames. Ten other firefighters were treated for minor to serious injuries. Over $20 million in damage occurred as a result of the fire. What remains unknown is who started the blaze and why.

The building safety director for the city said the death most likely could have been prevented if the building been equipped with sprinklers. The facility was built prior to North Carolina changing its fire code requiring multi-family and high-occupancy buildings to have sprinkler systems and the owners were not required to retrofit.

Sometimes a new city ordinance or building code change will immediately cause hundreds of older buildings to be in violation. But, rather than bringing buildings up to code, the government will insert a grandfather clause – an exemption allowing current businesses or property owners to continue operating under previous laws – into the language of the new regulation. In this case, the medical facility may have been exempt from modern sprinkler laws because the retrofitting would be too costly. Although a grandfather clause is often used to benefit owners who may otherwise face financial or personal hardship under new regulations, it is also allowing unsafe conditions. Is this another case of lawmakers putting the interests of the business community over citizens? Do tragedies like this one reveal the underlying weakness in the system?

We urge business owners to be proactive and go beyond minimum code requirements in making their buildings as safe as possible.

The families of those injured and killed in the fire may decide to talk to a personal injury attorney about their rights. If there was negligence on the part of the building owner, a personal injury lawsuit is likely.
Cases like this tend to take a long time from lawsuit commencement to lawsuit resolution; litigants/family members, struggling to make ends meet dealing with with funeral and burial or medical assistance expenses rendered at the time of the fire, may wish to consider applying for lawsuit funding. This is a service that provides a lawsuit cash advance to people involved in pending lawsuits. The main purpose of this legal finance service is to prevent cash strapped litigants from having to settle their valuable cases too soon, for too little, because the need lawsuit cash now. Legal funding may make a substantial difference in the bottom line of your case.
