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 […]

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) September 17, 2012 – Driving any vehicle under the influence is not a smart move. “It just boggles the imagination that anyone thinks it is ok to drive a potentially lethal weapon—car, truck or boat—while under the influence. Evidently, people still think that they ‘can’ drink and drive; the simple truth is they cannot and should not. In this case, a drunken boater took the life of a 9-year-old boy,” said Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan Paul Bennett was not paying attention to what he was doing while in his fishing boat on […]

This case involved a fake $100 bill. “You hear about a lot of strange things in this line of work,” said Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation in Michigan. “This one made me do a complete double take.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) July 20, 2012 – No one knows how this accident happened. An accident investigation will tell the story. “This was one of those accidents that mirror your worst nightmares; falling into a vat of acid. It happened to a New Jersey man while he was at work during what was a relatively normal day, until he fell through the roof, directly into a vat of nitric acid, also called aqua fortis. This is a highly corrosive agent and used in rocket fuel. Not something you would ever want to happen to you,” outlined Darren Monroe […]

He rear-ended another vehicle, causing it to go up in flames. “The victim in this case, 32-year-old Quentin Miller, was badly burned, and did not survive.
