Litigation Funding Corporation Warns That Workplaces May be Deadly After Collapsing Scissor Lift Kills Worker
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) May 23, 2011 - Workplaces may be deadly. This lawsuit involved two men, trying to maintain heavy machinery, when it collapsed.
“It was pretty much a typical day at work for the two men involved in this accident. They went to work, expecting it to be a typical day. It was anything but, as they worked on a scissor lift, at a steel manufacturing plant. The lift was 40 feet in the air and the two men were repairing it – usual maintenance for the men and the machine – when it collapsed,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.
One of the fallen workers was pinned directly under the lift. He was extricated by emergency response personnel who had arrived on site and airlifted to the nearest hospital for emergency care. The other worker died at the scene as the result of his multiple injuries.
“There will be a complete investigation into the accident to determine why the scissor lift suddenly dropped to the floor. It may be a matter of defective equipment or something else entirely, but they would need to get to the bottom of this catastrophe,” Monroe said.
The families of both workers will likely be speaking to personal injury attorneys to find out what their legal rights are and how they may recover compensation for their loss, wrongful death compensation for the survivors of the deceased worker, serious injury and pain and suffering damages for the injured man. While they consider their legal options, they should know if they decide to pursue litigation, they may also pursue legal funding to help pay their bills.
When an accident happens and there are medical bills on top of the usual monthly expenses, families are often put in a difficult position financially. They may not have enough money to move forward. The answer to their financial dilemma would be to apply for a lawsuit cash advance with an experienced lawsuit funding company.
If the case qualifies, if it stands a good chance of success, legal finance proceeds can be approved and forwarded within 24 to 48 hours. “Use it as you see fit; handle your necessary bills and expenses, then wait for a fair resolution in the case. If the insurance company comes makes an inadequate offer, and your attorney recommends rejection of that offer, listen to your attorney. Don’t accept the offer! Pre-settlement funding will help you get through the litigation. You may access this money at any time during the pending litigation,” Monroe said.
“If, by chance, the case does not win in court, a plaintiff who applies for and receives legal funding can keep the lawsuit cash advance proceeds. Yes, that’s right, they keep the legal funding with no further obligation to repay the company afterwards,” Monroe said.
