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 […]

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.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) April 26, 2012 – Once again, a wrong-way crash kills five and injures two. This wreck was catastrophic. “Five dead and two seriously injured in a wrong way crash.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) April 6, 2012 – When the weather is bad, often the roads are as well. It appears too many drivers do not adjust for road conditions. “Driving more cautiously on slippery roads would seem to be a no-brainer; unfortunately, there are too many drivers who figure they have no need to drive carefully because nothing will happen to them. Those are often the ones who end up dead. Consider this senseless accident that killed a 30-year-old man,” reports Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. This crash happened between a Chicago Transit Authority bus and […]

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) March 23, 2012 – The highway was icy. The bus driver needed to adjust the vehicle’s speed to go with the prevailing road conditions. “When the weather is dismal, the snow flying and the roads icy, it only makes good common sense to slow down. The bus driver in this accident did not. Two were killed and eight seriously or critically injured,” said Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation of Michigan. The crash was the result of the bus hitting a patch of ice and spinning out of control. And spin it did about 150 […]

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) March 12, 2012 – Going to a university and surviving is becoming a major issue. There is something dreadfully wrong with hazing rituals. “You send your kids to a university, hoping they get a good education to go out and face the world.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) February 28, 2012 – The driver in this case ran a red light and hit a woman sitting at a bus stop, killing her. He was not paying attention to what he was doing. “Some people don’t seem to understand that a red light means you stop or prepare to stop in enough time to actually obey the light. The defendant in this instance was not only speeding, but missed stopping for a red light because of his rate of speed, rammed into another car and slammed into a concrete bus bench where a woman […]

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) February 7, 2012 – When logging equipment falls off a truck while crossing a bridge, the results are deadly. “There was no way to avoid the inevitable in this accident,” said Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. “Particularly since the logging equipment that fell off the back of a truck landed right in front of a another driver, this became a horrendous scene.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) January 30, 2012 – A construction worker was killed thanks to an inattentive trucker. Hiring a competent lawyer is necessary in cases like this to protect a worker’s rights. “In this reported case an 18-wheeler struck and killed a construction worker who was installing signs on the side of I-77 in Ohio.

In this case, it got two teens killed and left one in critical condition. “This is a really disturbing story of three Utah teenage girls who decided one fall day to go take pictures of the leaves in the area in all their colorful glory.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) December 1, 2011 – Construction worksites are usually considered to be accidents looking for a place to happen. This case was no exception to that rule. “Anthony Marbach got up and went to work like usual the day of the accident. He figured it would be a day like any others; work hard, go home and crash and maybe spend some time online with friends. The 23-year-old construction worker was not expecting to be partially buried on the job,” outlined Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation in Southfield, Michigan. Marbach worked for a […]
