Cyclist Killed by Drunk Driver

January 29, 2018

A 33-year old man of Wylie, Texas was killed while riding his bicycle early Thanksgiving morning.

The Army veteran died as a result of being struck by a suspected drunk driver. The 26-year-old driver was arrested at the scene of the collision, charged with intoxication manslaughter and taken to the county jail.

The victim’s family wants to draw attention to drunk driving and how it affects victims’ families. They also plan to work toward having more bike lanes in North Texas.

If the victim’s family decides to file a lawsuit, they would still need to deal with funeral, burial and possibly end of life medical expenses if aid was rendered at the scene of the accident. Then, the right financial solution may be filling out an online application for a “lawsuit loan” from a litigation funding company. A lawsuit loan, also called pre-settlement funding or legal funding, can be of significant financial help to a family which must find the funds to pay for unexpected bills as well as monthly financial obligations.

A lawsuit loan enables a cash strapped family to take care of all of their expenses, while they take much needed time to heal and consult with legal counsel. Additionally, pre-settlement funding allows a plaintiff to wait for a just and fair verdict or settlement.

The process to obtain a lawsuit loan is hassle-free and does not require that the applicant to be employed. There are no upfront or ongoing fees and no credit checks. The only requirement of the plaintiff is the name of an attorney-of-record and any documents that the litigation funding company requires to evaluate the application.
