acetaminophen, Tylenol, is at the center of a numerous lawsuits involving plaintiffs who became seriously ill or died from taking the drug. In April of 2014, the first of 24 pending cases will begin in a New Jersey courtroom. Approximately 120 more cases are set for federal court in the city of Philadelphia. The claims accuse McNeil-PPC Inc. of concealing the health risks associated with taking Tylenol.

The Philadelphia Inquirer stated, “Tylenol-related deaths rose more than 25 percent from 2005-2010.” Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in 1977, warning about potential liver damage should be “obligatory,” it wasn’t until 2001 that the FDA actually began to take action. While experts agreed in 2003 that the warning labels had improved, it still didn’t suffice as an adequate warning to protect those who took the drug. Marcus Trunk, a 23-year-old Upper Dublin, Pennsylvania man, die in April of 1995 from taking Tylenol. Now, his mother Kate Trunk has been an important voice in pressuring the FDA to require better health warning labels.

Have You been Hurt On the Job?

workmans comp case

If you’ve been injured at work and you have a case, we can send you cash in advance of your settlement. Click here to fill out our simple 30-Second Application. Never a credit check.

While Worker’s Comp has different rules about eligibility, various rules and multiple ways to claim, but the laws are similar in every state. Every employee has a right to medical care if injured during work. Workers’ compensation should pay for all medical bills, home care, and equipment. The individual should also be compensated for the time he or she lost due to the injury or illness. If the individual passed away due to the injury or illness, the family should be eligible to receive the benefits on his or her behalf.

Almost all workers are covered by Worker’s Comp, even undocumented workers. Each workplace has general guidelines for those that are covered. While certain jobs are exempt from the coverage, such as federal workers and independent contractors, the best way to check your status would be to check with the Workers’ Comp agency.

Work Injury Lawsuit Claim Can Qualify for Legal Funding Loan

If you have been injured at work and you already have a lawyer, you’re a candidate for lawsuit funding.  that means we can send you cash before your case settles.  We have a very simple 30-Second Application and there’s no credit check, no fees and no obligation.

When am I covered by Workers’ Comp?

You are covered under Workers’ Compensation if you are in the premises under your employer’s control. This includes any work or premises of work you are doing for your employer. However, commuting does not come under coverage.

Work related illnesses and injuries are covered by Workers’ Comp. The injuries can be a one-time occurrence, such as a fall or the breaking of bones, or can occur over-time, such as muscle strain or carpel tunnel syndrome. Illnesses caused by toxic chemicals or poisonous gases are also covered.

Pre-existing conditions that get worse due to work, such as asthma, can also be covered by Workers’ Comp. As long as it can be proven that work was responsible for the worsening of the condition, the worker can be compensated, even if it is the individual’s carelessness or fault. However, if the employer can argue that the individual was inebriated or hurt him-/herself on purpose, the injury is not eligible. Drug use might be an issue when reporting an injury but does not always mean ineligibility of compensation.

Always check with a lawyer to see if the injury is covered, even if the employer denies it.

When should I go for a lawyer?

Workers’ Comp claims is one of the few times that a lawyer is worth to have. Local unions or Central Labor Council can make recommendations for injured individuals. Workers’ Comp lawyers only take cases they think they can win since they receive a percentage of the compensation awarded. There are no fees upfront.

Back Injury and Neck Injury

There are various situations that can cause a back and neck injury, such as lifting boxes,

back injury lawsuit

If you’re in a lawsuit for an injury to your back or neck, you probably qualify for a cash advance against your upcoming settlement. Call us today or fill out our simple 30-Second Application to find out how much money we can send you.

car accidents, slip and falls, or even a gradual injury cause by something as passive as working at a bench for many years. Such injured individuals can file for back injury compensation claim.

Back and Neck Injury Lawsuit Claim Can Qualify for Legal Funding Loan

If the back and neck injury occurs outside of work and was caused by someone else or on someone’s property, it is possible for the individual to file for a personal injury claim for the neck or back injury.

Injuries relating to neck or back can refer to muscle strains, torn muscle, nerve damage, or even broken bones. Here is a list of some common injuries:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated Discs
  • Compression fractures

The most common, and most dangerous, injuries involve the spine. Whiplash from traumatic events, where the head moves suddenly from one direction to the next, is often caused by car accidents. Inflammation, tender, and painful muscles are symptoms of such an injury. Headaches, pain in the shoulders or arms, problem with vision, and lower back pain are also signs of a back injury caused by whiplash.

While recovery is relatively quick for most individuals, individuals who are older or have had previous neck and back problems could sustain permanent damage. Back and neck injuries could cause substantial changes to one’s lifestyle along with financial loss. The injury could incur tremendous medical costs. The injury could also lead to temporary or permanent unemployment, contributing to further financial strain. But a compensation for such injuries from the insurance company could be very helpful at such times.

It is possible for doctors or insurance companies to discredit the injury claim in order to avoid the compensation, but a lawyer could help maneuver through these obstacles. A lawyer could help maximize the compensation for wage loss, medical expenses for the present and the future, and any sort of pain and suffering that the individual could endure. This compensation could either come from insurance companies or those responsible for the injury.

If you find yourself in such a claim, Interstate Lawsuit Funding can provide a pre-settlement cash advance to help with the monetary situation. The advance is a no-risk, no-credit check lawsuit loan with no proof of income necessary and could be up to $5,000, based solely on the merit of the case.

 

If your case deals with any kind of back or neck personal injury, Workers’ Compensation, or slip-and-fall, you would qualify for a pre-settlement cash advance. Please use the simple 30-second application on our Home page to apply. If your case qualifies, we would be able to send you a check within 48-hours for the money you require.

 

We do not expect a return of the check given to you because we will be paid back through the settlement amount. In case you do not win in court, Interstate Lawsuit Funding will not hold you personally liable to pay off the loan, and we guarantee the loan will not affect your personal valuables or credit history.

Slip and Fall Case

Who can be held accountable for an injury from slip and fall? Injuries like these take place

often, sometimes seriously, when fallen over stairs, wet floors, or irregular spots on the ground. This could be a fault of either the owner of property or of the individual that got injured.

Slip and Fall Injuries are Common.  But Who’s at Fault?

Slipping and falling is a common occurrence. Uneven floors, liquids on the floor, or objects on the floor are sometimes unavoidable. Slippery substances and objects on the floor cannot always be removed by the property owner. And many of the objects can be expected to be in the area and could be avoided. It is up to the individual to look where he or she is going.

Is Your Lawyer Pursuing a Negligence Lawsuit for Your Slip & Fall Injury?

This is not to say that owners of the property aren’t sometime negligent.  They must  be careful and aware about how they keep their property. While it is hard to determine who can be held responsible for a slip or a fall, your lawyer will know if there is a valid case to be made for negligence. 

Here are some guidelines to determine who is at fault in such incidents:

Determining who is liable-

  • The cause of the accident can be directly related to the owner, which could have been avoided.
  • The owner was aware of the problem and did not take any steps to rectify the problem.
  • The owner should have known about the problem and fixed or removed the problem.

While the third situation is the most common, it is also the most vague, especially determining what the owner “should have known” about the problem. The best way the judge or jury can determine if an owner can be held responsible it to look at the steps taken by the owner to prevent such an event in the most logical way.

What is “logical” in a Slip & Fall Case?

The law tries to determine if the owner regularly kept the property clean and safe. How to determine if the owner can be held liable?

  • How long has the dangerous spot been known to the owner?
  • Does the owner maintain the property regularly?
  • Should the dangerous object or area be there or was it an accident?
  • If there was reason, does the reason still apply or is it no longer applicable?
  • Could the object been moved or covered up to make the property safer?
  • Was visibility an issue?

If any of the above conditions apply to your case, you may have a legitimate claim for proper compensation. However, the recklessness of the individual injured should also be considered in the injury.

Determining Recklessness

We can use “comparative negligence” to determine if there was any fault on the side of the injured individual. Here are some questions to ask to determine fault:

  • Was there a proper reason for the individual to be in the danger area?
  • Could the individual have avoided the area?
  • Was there a noticeable warning signs for the area?
  • Was the individual distracted when the injury occurred?

While it is not necessary to prove that the injury took place even while you were cautious, accurately describing how the event took place.

If you already have a lawyer, you may be eligible for a lawsuit cash advance loan.

If you are looking at such a claim, Interstate Lawsuit Funding can provide pre-settle cash advance up to $5,000 based solely on the merits of the case.

If your case deals with slips or falls or any kind of accident or personal injury, you would qualify for a pre-settlement cash advance. Please use the simple 30-second application on our Home page to apply. If your case qualifies, we would be able to send you a check within 48-hours for the money you require.

That check is for you to keep, and we will be paid back through the settlement amount. If your case does not win in court, you will have no personal liability to pay off the loan on your own. Your personal valuables and your credit history are not at risk with Interstate Lawsuit Funding.

because the company is downsizing or changing their focus and no longer need the services of employees with certain skills. And it is within the rights of these employees to know the exact reason for their termination.

Do You Feel You Have Been Wrongfully Terminated?

If you feel you have been wrongfully terminated, it is possible to claim it against your former company. While not all cases succeed in court, if you do have a legitimate claim, you will be eligible for back pay, compensation, punitive damages, attorney fees, and possible reinstatement.

But there are a few things to consider before filing for such a claim. Apart from serious proof, public and internal company policies also have to be considered for the claim to be successful.

This list will help you determine if you have grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit:

  • You have been discriminated based on age, sex, race, disability, or religion.
  • You were terminated because of a disagreement or complaint of harassment.
  • You were terminated in violation of your given contract or promise of duration of your employer.
  • You were terminated for refusing to perform an act that would be considered illegal or unsafe.
  • You were let go because of taking time off for voting, illness in the family, or military service.
  • You were terminated is in violation of company policy.
  • You sustained mental or emotional injuries due to the way you were treated at your former work place.
  • Your termination has put you in significant financial harm and will take months to find comparable employment.

If your claim falls under one or more of these categories, your case can succeed- possibly in court or possibly in an out-of-court settlement.

If you have a good case, you may qualify for a a lawsuit cash advance.

A pre-settle cash advance from Interstate Lawsuit Funding can provide $500 to $5000 or more based on the merits of your case.  Loans from Interstate Lawsuit Funding are fast and require no credit check.
