It also alleges that the driver of the SUV was driving too fast. Additionally, the suit names the Maryland Transportation Authority as a defendant alleging that it knew the risks in allowing two-way traffic on one span of the bridge and should have installed barriers between the lanes of opposing traffic.

Speeding Results in Intersection Fatality

February 16, 2012

A 68-year-old man was killed in an auto accident when the driver of a Toyota Scion ran a red light and hit the man’s Chevrolet Cavalier broadside. Witnesses said the driver of the Scion was speeding, swerved around a vehicle in front of him that had stopped at the light and hit the Cavalier in the intersection. The two vehicles then skidded into a guardrail. The impact caused life-threatening injuries to the Toyota driver; the driver of the Cavalier died at the scene. The accident is still under investigation.

During the continued investigation, the family of the deceased driver may choose to talk to an experienced attorney about their rights to compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one.

Has Your Family Suffered A Wrongful Death?

December 29, 2011

What could be more devastating than learning of a loved one’s death due to the negligence and carelessness of someone else?

Any act of negligence – an auto accident, medical malpractice, inadequate care, defective product – that results in death is a potential wrongful death claim. Damages can include loss of future income, medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of consortium or love and affection.

A wrongful death attorney understands how devastating the loss of a loved one can be and can help you seek the compensation you deserve. Unfortunately, a wrongful death claim can be difficult to handle. For example, it must be proven that a doctor’s performance was below the minimum standard of professional conduct before. If a defective product was involved, the defendant might allege that the victim did not use the product with the intended use, and therefore contributed to his/her own death. Additionally, the lawsuit may be hard fought and dragged out for years as the defendant and insurance company deny, delay, and defend the claim. Such delays can put a financial burden on the family, but the insurance company doesn’t care. As the bills pile up, plaintiffs may feel the pressure to settle too soon, for too little; the exact situation the insurance company hopes will happen.

If you in a pending litigation but need cash to pay your current bills and living expenses, you may be able to leverage your expected settlement with a “lawsuit loan.” Applying for litigation funding is easy with our online application process. There are no credit checks or employment verification. Best of all, you pay nothing until you successfully settle your case. We assume all the risk, so if you lose your case, you owe us nothing. Call or visit us online; we can approve your application quickly and get you the cash you need within 24 – 48 hours. Contact us with any questions or concerns.

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.

Heparin Overdose Kills Toddler

June 18, 2010

This is a tragic case, one that should never have occurred; a medication error took the life of a two year old child.

Apparently, the child was given a fatal overdose of Heparin while she was in hospital recovering from major organ transplant surgery. She was also recovering from gastroschisis (a birth defect in which an infant’s intestines protrude through a defect on one side of the umbilical cord). when she died, suddenly, when all signs indicated that she was making good progress. An investigation revealed that she had been given too much Heparin.

Although the hospital apparently tried to assist the parents any way they could to deal with the tragedy, there will be further investigations and it is more than likely the parents of this little girl will be talking to a personal injury lawyer about pursuing wrongful death or medical malpractice litigation.
The parents will have an enormous burden of grief to deal with, along with hospital expenses and funeral and burial costs. It’s likely to be a very overwhelming time for them, emotionally and financially. How will they maintain their bills and expenses under such extraordinary stress and strain?

If the investigation suggests that the hospital was negligent in its care and treatment of this unfortunate little girl, and litigation is pursued, there is a good possibility the family will be eligible for a lawsuit cash advance. This is a risk-free method of obtaining needed cash now, as litigation funding is contingent upon the outcome of the cases funded; if the family loses their case, it would not need to repay the lawsuit funding. Only if a case is successful does legal finance require repayment.

It is easy to apply for lawsuit financing; you may do so by phone or online. There are no up-front fees and no monthly payments. Legal funding may be used for any necessary expense, but we advise that it be utilized only for important bills and expenses, like medical or funeral bills, mortgage or rent payments, car payments, etc.

Gross Police Misconduct Costs $25 Million

April 28, 2010

You may remember this case; it made worldwide headlines when the incident leading to the litigation occurred. A 22-year old man was shot and killed by a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officer. It began innocently enough; although several young men were celebrating New Year’s and began to become rowdy on the train. This drew the attention of the Transit police, who pulled them off the train after getting reports of a fight on board.

The young man and his friends were told to sit on the train station platform and were asked a series of questions by the police. Just down the platform, someone was videotaping the entire event. At the subsequent, wrongful death, police misconduct trial, the jury saw the video. It provided graphic evidence showing one of the Transit police putting the 22-year old man into a face down prone position, effectively pinning him to the ground. While he was on the ground and not resisting, another Transit officer stood over him and shot him in the back. Although the man was taken to hospital, he died seven hours later as a result of his wounds.

Eyewitnesses indicated the man was cooperating with the police, that he did not have a weapon, that he repeatedly asked his friends to cooperate with the police and asked officers, over and over, not to hurt him because he had a four year old daughter at home. The devastated family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the BART agency and the officer who shot the young man.

This family waited long and hard for justice. During that time they still had to pay all their bills and other the incidentals that come with daily living. They were faced with enormous medical expenses on behalf of their son while he was in hospital, the funeral and burial expenses. Who would care for his daughter and the expenses related to taking over her care?

Maybe the family made use of a service known as lawsuit funding; a lawsuit cash advance would have allowed them to wait for a just verdict in their son’s wrongful death case. Litigation funding is all about helping people to immediately pay their bills and expenses without having to settle their case for chump change to do so. The infusion of a lawsuit cash advance takes an enormous burden off victims’ shoulders.

Legal finance services are easy to apply for; their is no credit check and you do not need to be employed. And, repayment of legal funding is contingent upon your recovery; if you lose your case, you do not have to pay the money back. It may just be what you need to get the justice you and your family deserve.

Tractor-Trailer Meets Small SUV-Head On-Death is the Result

April 19, 2010

Anytime a vehicle tangles with a tractor-trailer, someone gets seriously hurt or killed.

This case involves a small SUV and a tractor-trailer meeting head-on. Predictably, the crash killed the man driving a Honda CRV. The driver, 70 year old Darryl Rice was traveling south on the highway when for some reason he suddenly veered left of the center line and collided with the northbound 18-wheeler. The trucker, Rolado Stroud, was driving the 1997 Freightliner.

A coroner attended the scene and pronounced Rice dead. He had been wearing a seat belt and so had the truck driver, who was uninjured. While emergency crews were cleaning up the automobile accident scene, the police started asking questions about why the accident had happened in the first place.

Witnesses indicated that they road conditions were fine and there was nothing in the road that would have caused Rice to veer into oncoming traffic. This would of course raise questions about the car Rice was driving and whether or not there was a mechanical failure of some kind to cause the car to swerve over the center line; something like the problem with Toyota vehicles.

Once those details are sorted out, the Rice family might want to consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for the loss of their grandfather, father, husband and brother. Wrongful death cases are not easy to try, and they do take a long time to be resolved. In the meantime, the Rice family has been left in a bind financially.

They might want to do research into the possibility of qualifying for a lawsuit cash advance to tide them over until a settlement is reached or a verdict handed down by the courts. Lawsuit funding is specifically designed to let the plaintiff be able to pay their immediate bills and have money on hand for future expenses as they wait for their case to be dealt with and over.

Litigation funding is often a very good option for people like the Rice’s who would be between a rock and a hard place without this case funding option and may have to take pennies on the dollar for a case worth more. Lawsuit funding is usually ready to go when the plaintiff is ready to apply and may arrive in as little as 48 hours. Why worry about money when a lawsuit cash advance would ease the burden immediately? The application process is simple. The advice is free.

20 Foot Fall From Lift Is Fatal to Construction Worker

March 26, 2010

Construction accidents usually result in serious injuries; this one was fatal for one worker and caused serious injuries for another. The construction accident took place in Louisiana at a job site in the East Baton Rouge school system.

It appears that the two construction workers fell a distance 20 feet to the ground after the lift they were balanced on was struck by a beam. One worker suffered a catastrophic traumatic brain injury and was pronounced dead at the scene. The second man was taken to hospital for treatment of his serious injuries.
Both men worked for a steel fabricator at the time of the accident. The police report isn’t clear as to what precisely took place, but from eyewitness reports, it appears that the crane operator moving the beam from one place to another didn’t pay attention to what he was doing and hit the lift.

The surviving construction worker and the family of the deceased construction worker may want to consider filling both a workers compensation case and, if the crane operator was not a co-employee of the same employer as the victims, a personal injury lawsuit against the crane operator and his employer for negligence in operating the unit. Cases like this take some time before they are resolved; in the meantime, the worker and his family and family of the deceased worker may need money now, to pay their bills and expenses and, in the future, as they wait for the case to wind down the long litigation road.
A lawsuit cash advance may work well for both victims here. The victims could apply for litigation funding; if they are approved, they would receive instant cash just when they need it most. This vital lawsuit financial assistance may be used to pay all the necessary medical expenses, funeral expenses and the ordinary expenses that personal injury and wrongful death victims fall behind on when accidents or tragedy happen. Lawsuit funding tries to bridge the gap between lawsuit and case settlement or resolution; legal finance companies do not need credit checks. Lawsuit finance companies look for solid personal injury cases with a reasonable chance of success.
