Do You Know How To Fight Civil Lawsuit Delay Tactics?: It was a normal evening at a Millburn, New Jersey mall as a Hoboken attorney and his wife returned to their car after shopping. The couple didn’t know that four men were lying in wait for them, and they had no idea that these men would attack and try to steal their car. The resulting struggle left one man dead, and now that man’s widow is on a quest for justice. However, her struggles in civil court might face an unanticipated burden. How To Fight Civil Lawsuit Delay Tactics The widow of the Hoboken attorney slain during this carjacking filed a civil lawsuit against Universal Protection Service (a California-based security company), and Taubman Centers, Inc. (the Michigan-based company that owns the mall where the attack occurred.) She claims that her husband’s death could have been prevented if the mall owners and the security company had provided proper security for the...

Will A New Litigation Funding Act In Missouri Help Plaintiffs?: Missouri has started its period of bill pre-filing for the 2016 legislative year, and several bills have already been put on the line up to be considered as future Missouri state laws. One bill proposes that the state’s high schools require a standardized test similar to the US immigration test, another suggests new anti-terrorism measures, but one bill could also affect Missourians’ ability to seek out justice in civil court. Will New Litigation Funding Act In Missouri Help Plaintiffs? Recently legislation in Colorado put legal funding under extreme restrictions, which has nearly made it impossible for legal funders to help the victims of personal injury accidents. The legislation in that state is just another example of misguided legislation that will do more harm to victims trying to find justice than good, and now new legislation is on the horizon in Missouri. Could this legislation be as devastating as the Colorado... Read More » http://bit.ly/1TDKHcB #FundingforPlaintiffs #LegalFundingLegislation

Will The Concussion Movie Help Retired NFL Players?: The NFL has a problem with concussions, and their former players are refusing to stay silent. These players have faced massive obstacles trying to overcome the near infinite budget that the NFL has to address legal concerns, and we’ve told you about these players relying on legal funding to help their cases reach a favorable conclusion. Fortunately, these retired titans of the gridiron are getting help from Hollywood, too. Will The Concussion Movie Help Retired NFL Players? In a new movie released on Christmas Day, Will Smith is portraying the forensic neuropathologist Bennet Omalu, who helped prove the dangers of multiple concussions and link those injuries to the NFL. The story depicts the struggle faced by the doctor as he tried to get the sports community to recognize these life-changing injuries. Many advocates hope that this movie will spread the word about chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Are Players Going To... Read More » http://bit.ly/1ZT1Let #FundingforPlaintiffs #NFLConcussions

Why Legal Funding Critics Are Wrong: Legal funding is a fairly new addition to the courtroom scene here in America, so it has quite a few critics who think that the change will ruin the American civil justice system, but these critics are being short sighted. Why Legal Funding Critics Are Wrong Legal funding removes pressure: Some critics claim that third party contributions to cases pressures plaintiffs to seek high settlements in order to pay back their advances, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Legal funders provide settlement advances that only require repayment if the plaintiff receives a positive settlement or verdict. This actually removes pressure from the plaintiff and allows them to concentrate on what’s best for themselves. Legal funding avoids meritless cases: Critics have also argued that legal funding encourages frivolous lawsuits, but this argument doesn’t make sense when you look closer. Legal funders would not get repaid if they funded lawsuits... Read More » http://bit.ly/1OOj9uH #FundingforPlaintiffs #LegalFundingHelps

Four Reasons Litigation Finance Helps: Litigation finance allows third parties to give financial support to many different types of civil lawsuits, and despite having critics, the practice has grown into a major industry here in America and internationally. However, do you know how litigation finance helps people? Four Reasons Litigation Finance Helps Increases Access To Justice: The United States’ justice system is built on equal justice for all, but the system has become so tangled up in filing fees and other expenses that it can take thousands of dollars to get anything done, but litigation financing can help by allowing people to better handle these expenses. Managing The Risk: Litigation funders also help consumers by removing part of the risk they take on when they take a case to court. Without funders, a plaintiff would take on the entire financial responsibility of a case, but with a funder, that risk is lessened, because repayment of...

Should Payday Lending Rules Apply To Legal Funding?: A Colorado court has delivered a decision that might endanger consumer legal funding in the state. This could force victims of auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, and malpractice to accept low ball initial settlements from companies looking to meet a bottom line rather than pay a truly fair settlement. However, the supporters of legal funding have not given up. Should Payday Lending Rules Apply To Legal Funding? A Colorado court plans to force legal funding companies to adhere to the Colorado Uniform Consumer Credit Code (UCCC). These codes were initially applied to payday loans due to scrupulous companies charging high interest on the loans they provided. These companies took advantage of consumer circumstances to profit, but that business is nothing like consumer legal funding. “This anomalous decision imposes state government regulations designed for credit products on property rights,” says the Alliance for Responsible Consumer Legal Funding (ARC). Companies like... Read More » http://bit.ly/1Pl8cWs #FundingforPlaintiffs #LegalFundingLegislation

Pelvic Mesh Settlement Reduced: What Does This Mean For Victims?: Not long ago we brought you a story about victims forced to wait for justice as a judge delayed a pelvic mesh multidistrict litigation (MDL) and held up around 33,000 cases. Many of those victims have had to turn to solutions like what we provide here at Beacon Legal Funding, but delays aren’t the only problems pelvic mesh victims are facing. Pelvic Mesh Settlement Reduced Rumors recently sprouted that a case that was part of one of the many pelvic mesh MDLs was remanded and the verdict from the case was stricken. Such an occurrence could have damaged the MDL overall, but the story turned out to be an exaggeration. What Really Happened? A judge declared that a recent verdict for $100 million for a pelvic mesh victim should be reduced to $10 million. She said the original verdict “shocked the court’s conscience and sense of justice,” because it was... Read More » http://bit.ly/1O6iepa #FundingforPlaintiffs #TransvaginalMesh

How Does Consumer Legal Funding Save Families?: In 2013, Oklahoma State Sen. Rob Johnson helped pass a bill in Oklahoma that limited consumer legal funding to existing legal claims. The bill requires legal funders to obtain a license and it holds their agreements to the Uniform Consumer Credit Code as a regulation standard. These measures have been seen by many as a step in the right direction for legal funding, but the senator warns that the industry should not be regulated out of existence. How Does Consumer Legal Funding Save Families? A father in Chicago was unable to work due to an on-the-job injury, but it was taking too long for his claim to go through. He exhausted his savings while trying to pay his daughter’s college tuition, and hope seemed lost until he discovered consumer legal funding. Legal funding allowed this father to help keep his daughter in college, and it can do so much more.... Read More » http://bit.ly/1NMnXjQ #FundingforPlaintiffs #LegalFundingHelps
