$3.9M Lawsuit Filed Against Bar and Driver for Bizarre Hit-and-Run Death of Pedestrian

January 5, 2017

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a drunk driving auto accident, are represented by an attorney, and experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for litigation funding. If you qualify, Litigation Funding Corporation, a leader in the legal funding industry, may be able to provide a lawsuit cash advance within in 24 – 48 hours.

A wrongful death lawsuit was recently filed against a drunk driver, as well as the bar that served her that night she hit two pedestrians, killing one.

The plaintiff said he and his father were crossing the street on foot when they were struck by the driver of a Honda Civic. The impact of the crash knocked the older pedestrian into the windshield, then onto the luggage rack on the car’s roof. The driver did not stop; she drove 11 blocks before the man fell off. He died along the side of the road as the woman left the scene. The younger pedestrian (also the plaintiff) required surgery for injuries he sustained.

While the crash was initially hit-and-run, police were able to track down the driver, who later pled guilty and sentence to eight years.

The lawsuit alleges driver negligence for driving while intoxicated and failing to control her vehicle. The complaint contends the bar was negligent in serving her alcohol while she was visibly intoxicated.

A bar can be held accountable for a wrongful death caused by a drunk driver if there is evidence that the bar illegally served alcohol to the driver prior to the crash. This is called a dram shop claim, and it is meant to hold bar owners accountable when their illegal behavior causes severe injury and death. Dram shop liability laws vary widely by state so it is important to consult a personal injury attorney versed in this area of the law to determine if you have a valid case.

These types of lawsuits will take a long time to sort out; the bar will likely mount a vigorous defense and a settlement or trial could be months, if not years, away. By the time the plaintiff is able to see a settlement, he may have medical bills, funeral expenses, and other bills piled up. If he needs financial assistance during the litigation process, Litigation Funding Corporation is here to help.

Litigation Funding Corporation is a reputable legal finance company helping victims regain control of their lives and their finances while their attorney focuses on strengthening their case to obtain the compensation justly deserved. Litigation funding is based on the strength of the case; credit and employment are irrelevant.

It is easy to apply for litigation funding either online or by phone. If approved, the cash advance can be available in as little as 24 hours. Litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if you lose, repayment is excused.

If you have been in a drunk driving auto accident and experiencing financial hardship, contact Litigation Funding Corporation for a “staying power” advantage, so you can fight for justice and the compensation you deserve.

Litigation Funding May Be A Financial Solution During Your Pending Wrongful Death Lawsuit

October 21, 2015

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the father of a 20-year-old who lost control of his vehicle and slammed into a building, killing one passenger and seriously injuring another. The driver was in a coma for months, and remains “physically and mentally incapacitated.” Although he is undergoing 18 hours of physical therapy a week, doctors do not feel he will ever be competent. The surviving passenger has no recollection of the night and continues to suffer lasting injuries from the accident.

Authorities said the young man was speeding and under the influence of controlled dangerous substances last summer when his Honda Civic slammed into a building. The lawsuit claims that his father should have known or knew about his son’s history of drunk driving. County records indicated that he was jailed on a marijuana distribution charge in November. His license had been previously suspended for stemming from a summons for driving under the influence.

In addition to naming the driver and his father, the suit seeks to hold responsible those who gave him the alcohol, as well as those who drank with him. The lawsuit alleges that before the accident, the driver was at the property of the unidentified defendants, and that he was already “visibly intoxicated” when those unnamed defendants continued to provide, share, and condone the consumption of alcoholic beverages and/or controlled, dangerous substances.

This lawsuit will most likely take a long time to settle because one passenger is dead, the other has no memory, and the driver is incompetent, making it difficult to determine what the driver did and with whom just before the crash. The cost of a funeral in itself can also be quite pricey. Medical bills can also lead to financial devastation. While these victims and their families did not cause this tragic situation, nonetheless it is one they are facing, and will continue to face for a long time.

Litigation funding is a quick and easy solution to alleviate financial stress after the wrongful loss or serious injury of a loved one. A lawsuit cash advance would allow the family precious time to wait for a fair and equitable settlement; if they desperately need money now, the only other alternative would be to settle a valuable case for pennies on the dollar to pay their bills. The only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. A plaintiff can apply for this non-recourse cash advance either online or over the phone; the process takes less than five minutes; approvals take 48 hours or less. Lawsuit funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if you lose, repayment is excused.

For any plaintiff who feels they cannot financially wait to seek justice in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, lawsuit funding may be the solution. Call Litigation Funding Corporation today for a free, no-obligation consultation.
