Woman Drives Drunk with Six-Year-Old Daughter as Passenger

October 15, 2012

Every day, we hear about auto accidents as the result of a drunk driver. The innocent victim may seek legal advice and file a lawsuit, but these claims take time. In the meantime, bills keep coming in. If you are unable to work, the financial impact is manifested. This is where lawsuit funding can help.

Recently, a woman was driving under the influence. That’s bad, but what makes me shake my head was that she had her 6-year-old child in the car. When the woman drifted into another lane, she rear-ended a vehicle causing both automobiles to slam into a barrier wall. EMS crews took everyone to hospital; the driver of the second vehicle suffered chest pains and a passenger sustained a broken ankle. Fortunately, the 6-year-old escaped uninjured.

The police arrested the drunk driver at the scene, charging her with driving under the influence, and endangering a child. On the way to jail, the mother profusely apologized. This woman put herself in danger, she put other drivers on the road in danger, but unbelievably, she put her own daughter in danger.

This accident could have been a lot worse, but injuries may be prolonged for months, even years; the injured may be unable to work temporarily or permanently. The innocent victims may wish to consult an attorney about their rights to compensation for injuries sustained, plus future medical expenses for therapy, drugs, rehabilitation, possible surgery and the inability to walk without pain.

Until the case settles, victims may require help paying their ongoing medical bills, lost wages and so forth. But, what do they do to pay their bills when they are out of work or can’t afford the added expenses? The best solution may be to apply for pre-settlement funding, also referred to as litigation funding.

Lawsuit funding is an emergency “loan” for plaintiffs that find themselves in a financial bind. The lawsuit cash advance helps them pay all of their bills immediately, and allows them the time they need to try and move forward with their lives and heal. With a legal funding company, you are treated with the greatest of respect and dignity. They appreciate how much you have been through.

Lawsuit funding is sent to qualified plaintiffs within 24-48 hours of being approved. There are no upfront fees, no monthly payments, and you do not need to be employed. Typically, most plaintiffs that apply for pre-settlement funding are not able to work, which is one of the reasons they need a lawsuit cash advance. Litigation funding is worth checking out. While it is not for everyone, by getting more information on how it works, you can make informed decisions.

Truck Driver Ignores Construction Zone Signs; Kills Six

October 8, 2012

The driver of an 18-wheeler seems to have ignored the clear signs that warned of a construction zone ahead.

The truck carried a full load as the driver coasted down a slight downhill stretch. Without any indication of braking, the trucker rear-ended an SUV, shoving it into another vehicle, leading to a six-car chain reaction pile up. The SUV burst into flames, killing a mother, her two children, and two other passengers. The driver of a second SUV also perished in the accident.

Initial reports did not indicate that the trucker was impaired or distracted in anyway prior to impact. The truck driver stated he just didn’t notice the signs until it was too late. Further investigation into the trucker, and the trucking company, showed their trucks were cited in 75 accidents over the last two-years. One crash was fatal, and 23 other accidents resulted in at least one serious injury.

The families of the deceased will most likely file a wrongful death lawsuit. In the meantime, they may be faced with some serious issues trying to meet their monthly bills. To allow them to get to a settlement or trial, the best answer to deal with their financial needs would be to apply for litigation funding.

Pre-settlement funding is designed for plaintiffs in need of an emergency cash advance to help them get back on their feet financially, pay their extraordinary and usual bills, and still have funds left to help with other expenses. Paying for five funerals and burials would result in a significant bill.

A lawsuit cash advance, once the case is assessed and approved, arrives in the plaintiff’s bank account within 24-48 hours. It is direct deposit, and access is immediate on arrival. Most plaintiffs will use the funds to pay medical, funeral and burial expenses, and also keep up-to-date with monthly household expenses, such as the mortgage or car payments.

Legal financing allows the plaintiff time to move forward with their lives after such a wrenching loss. Lawsuit cash advances may be applied for online, or by calling the litigation funding company directly. With a legal funding company, you are treated with respect and dignity. Contact a legal funding expert to see if litigation funding is a good fit for your situation.
