A nurse would not give her CPR while she lay dying. “This case was a real eye-opener for everyone involved,” explained Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. “While a police dispatcher argued with a nurse about starting CPR right away, the woman died without the nurse lifting a finger to help her, other than call 911.” The 911 call somehow made its way to the national media and the whole country heard a registered nurse refuse to help the […]

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) April 9, 2013 – Drinking and driving do not mix, and neither do drinking and white water rafting. “It never ceases to amaze me that people who are three sheets to the wind think they can drive, or operate anything that requires being sober to be safe,” said Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. “This case is a prime example of someone getting wasted before white water rafting, the guide in fact, and being responsible for the death of a paying customer.” A rafter drowned in 2012, after being jostled off a raft while […]

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) February 12, 2013 – Hazing deaths are becoming far too frequent for comfort. “You send your son off to university, expecting they will graduate and move forward with their career.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) December 4, 2012 – It is said people in America sue for just about everything. This ruptured bladder case is a bit unusual. “The guy that filed this lawsuit had a lot of courage. Not a whole lot of men would stand up and admit they had been to a strip club and been body slammed by a dancer, resulting in nerve injuries and a ruptured bladder. There are even fewer men who would admit that just prior to their wedding day. We have no idea if his wedding did proceed, but a personal injury […]
