Teen May Get Off with Probation, but Wrongful Death Lawsuit is Still Pending in Triple-Fatal Crash

August 20, 2015

An 18-year-old Georgia teen has pleaded guilty to three counts of second- degree vehicular homicide and been sentenced to 24 months of probation in an accident that killed three people. The teen was driving a Ford Taurus southbound on a two-lane road when she tried to pass a pick-up truck. When the teen saw an oncoming vehicle, she tried to return to the southbound lane, but sideswiped the truck which spun and struck an oncoming SUV. The driver and a passenger in the SUV died at the scene. The 19-year-old driver of the pick-up died three days later; her teen passenger suffered serious injuries. Police said speed and alcohol were not a factor in the accident; it was just a lack of judgement.

The parents of the deceased truck driver filed a wrongful death suit alleging that the 18-year-old was negligent through her failure to maintain the lane and for attempting an improper pass. In her response to the suit, the teen said she was trying to pass the truck, but the truck driver sped up. While she admitted to the manner of the accident, the teen denied any responsibility. The wrongful death claim seeks $10 million to recover the full value of their daughter’s, another 60-plus years, as well as compensation for medical, funeral and burial expenses, attorney fees, and pain and suffering.

Don’t Lose Control of your Lawsuit; Litigation Funding Could be the Answer

October 6, 2014

Wrongful death and serious injury accidents often cause immediate and long-term financial problems for victims and families. Litigation funding provides financial relief to victims in a pending lawsuit.

A head on collision between a Ford Taurus and a pick-up truck resulted in the death of a 33-year-old Arkansas woman. The accident happened when the driver of the pick-up truck suddenly lost control, crossed into the turn lane, then into the inside westbound lane before swerving into the outside westbound lane and hitting the Taurus head-on. The woman was killed instantly; two children, an 8- and 11-year old, in her car were not seriously injured. All involved were wearing seat belts. An investigation is ongoing, but it is currently unclear why the truck driver lost control of his vehicle. Was he distracted or was there a mechanical failure or defect?

When life is taken by negligence and irresponsible actions of another, no words can supply sufficient comfort to those who have lost a loved one. No matter how this investigation concludes, negligence can be a difficult concept to understand as well as to prove. It is imperative that the family of the deceased woman seek legal advice from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. They may be able to receive compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one and claim damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and funeral and burial expenses. Unfortunately, the family may be unable to pay the bills and additional expenses associated with the accident until a settlement is reached. In such a situation, they can turn to a lawsuit cash advance, known as litigation funding.

There are no costs or fees associated with a funding application. There are also no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. We review and approve requests for funding based on the strength of the case. All we require is a completed application and case documentation. If approved, Litigation Funding Corp. will wire money into a client’s account within 24 – 48 hours. When the case settles, we are repaid from the proceeds of the settlement, but if the case is lost, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety. Where else can you obtain a risk-free “lawsuit loan”?

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, Litigation Funding Corp. may be able to provide you the freedom to wait for the highest possible settlement. Apply online or call or by calling one of our funding specialists for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Driver Swerves Around Debris Causing Multi-Vehicle Accident

September 22, 2014

One of the most common lethal driving mistakes is swerving either by not staying in the proper lane, drifting into other lanes, or erratically changing lanes. Swerving can also occur if a driver is going too fast for road conditions, overcompensates, or swerves to avoid a pothole, animal, or debris. Swerving to avoid the debris is a common reaction, but it can also be more devastating than hitting the object.

According to police, the driver of a Jeep Liberty was speeding when he came upon road debris. Swerving to avoid hitting it, he slammed into a pick-up truck. Unfortunately, that began a chain-reaction. The pick-up truck in turn hit a Ford Taurus sending it into a guardrail before overturning. The drivers of the Liberty and pick-up truck escaped with minor injuries; the driver of the Taurus suffered several broken bones and a traumatic brain injury.

Victims of this auto accident should contact an experienced attorney to determine their rights. They may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other damages related to the accident. The unfortunate aspect of road debris claims is proof; the plaintiff must prove that the debris was the cause of the accident; there must be proof that the accident would not have otherwise occurred. Often times, these types of lawsuits will take more time than a plaintiff can financially withstand. Someone else’s poor judgment should not force victims into debt. For plaintiffs in need of financial assistance, litigation funding may be helpful.

Litigation funding is a no-risk solution for any financially-strapped plaintiff. Poor credit? No worries! No job? No worries! No money to make monthly payments? No worries! The only condition to receive funding is a case with merit.

If you have been harmed in an accident caused by debris in the street, you may be able to receive financial compensation from the party responsible. Once you have filed a lawsuit, you may be entitled to litigation funding. The process begins with completing a one-page application upon which time Litigation Funding Corp. will contact your attorney for case documentation. If your request for funding is approved, a contract is executed and cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment is made once your case successfully settles; if you lose your case, repayment is completely waived.

If you are a plaintiff in a pending lawsuit, have fallen on tough financial times, and need cash to pay the bills, call Litigation Funding Corp. We would be happy to review your case and determine if litigation funding is right for you.
