Two die after hitting a renegade utility trailer

The strangest and most tragic things happen on the highways these days. This freak accident killed two.

The whole affair would never have happened, but someone was negligence while hitching up – not taking that extra minute or two to double check how safe their utility trailer was before hitting the road. The consequence of saving a few minutes was the death of two people.

This accident happened on I-85 in South Carolina when a utility trailer being towed by a truck came unhitched in the middle of the highway. The vehicle towing it kept on going. The trailer, bereft of forward motion, began to slow down, as traffic tried to avoid it.

Unfortunately, a 2000 Honda SUV slammed into the trailer in the middle lane of the highway, veered into the right lane and was struck by an 18-wheeler. Shirin and Sajid Pirani both died at the scene. Miraculously, their two children, ages 6 and 3, were still alive in the backseat of the totaled vehicle. They were taken to hospital for assessment and later released to relatives.

The police report indicates no one was able to identify the vehicle towing the trailer, as it fled the scene. It was fairly dark at the time of the crash and police want to talk to the trailer owner before making decisions about laying charges. Eyewitnesses are being asked to provide the police with anything they can remember.

It is a nasty case, and one that will take a fair length of time to settle when the culprit is finally found. It would not be much of a surprise if the Pirani family filed a wrongful death suit to recover compensation for the children’s futures. They will need to know their rights and what types of compensation they may request from the court. There is also a good chance they will need money to pay for the children’s medical expenses and the funeral and burial costs for their parents.

The sudden responsibility of two children may be financially difficult for the relatives of the Pirani family, and they may need help to deal with their bills. For this, they may find the perfect answer is in the form of litigation funding. Often referred to as pre-settlement funding, a lawsuit loan comes to the rescue when plaintiffs need it the most. It arrives within 24 to 48 hours, and the only thing the plaintiff needs to do is fill out an application online or by calling the litigation funding company directly.

“This is a no hassle, no upfront fee, no monthly payments to make” kind of arrangement and it will help financially strapped plaintiffs get back on their feet, deal with their expenses and allow them to wait for justice. Legal financing also means the victims don’t have to take any offers from the insurance company, because they have a lawsuit cash advance in the bank. It’s an almost perfect solution for some people, but may not be for others. However, it is well worth checking out. It may make a huge difference to your case.
