$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 is a Godsend When Running Out of Resources in a Pending Lawsuit

November 22, 2016

Running out of gas can put motorist and their passengers in jeopardy should the vehicle suddenly become immobilized on the roadway; drivers can end up stranded in the middle of a busy highway without the ability to move their vehicle. Being stranded in the middles of the road can result in a serious or fatal multi-car crash.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol reported that a 26-year-old man was killed after his vehicle slammed into a tractor-trailer. According to reports, the semi ran out of fuel and was stalled in the center lane of I-77 in Hunterville. The 26-year-old was traveling at 65 miles per hour when he hit the tractor-trailer. Police believe he didn’t brake and was killed on impact. An investigation is underway, but troopers suspect the man was distracted in some way; there were no skid marks prior to the point of impact.

Although it appears the young driver was distracted, running out of gas is completely avoidable and the truck driver could be held at least partially accountable for the crash. When faced with a complex accident and liability issues, it is important to consult an experienced attorney who will be able to advise the deceased man’s family of their legal rights and options. If a lawsuit is filed and the family needs financial assistance during the pending claim, Litigation Funding Corporation may be able to help. We provide a lawsuit cash advances, without consideration of credit score or employment status.

The first step would be to complete an online funding application. Then, we will work with the plaintiff’s attorney to gather necessary information to process the funding request as quickly as possible. Upon approval, funds can arrive by wire or check within 24-48 hours. While the money can be used at the client’s discretion, it typically helps pay medical expenses, funeral expenses, or important monthly obligations such as mortgage or rent payments and utility bills. This cash advance is not a “lawsuit loan” as it is often called; we are only repaid, if and when the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, the cash advance is waived in its entirety.

Financial relief during the litigation process is only a phone call away. Call Litigation Funding Corporation for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Litigation Funding is A Financial Option for Those Out Of Options

An Illinois family was stopped at an intersection with a turn signal on when their F-150 was rear-ended by a Nissan Versa. The impact caused the F-150 to spin into oncoming traffic, where it was T-boned by a Ford Expedition. A teen passenger was rescued by Good Samaritans and airlifted to the hospital in serious condition. Her parents were unable to be rescued before their vehicle became engulfed in flames. The Nissan driver and a passenger in the Expedition were airlifted to the hospital in serious condition; the SUVs driver suffered minor injuries. The crash is under investigation.

When a careless or negligent driver causes an accident, victims can suffer serious injury or even death. The at-fault driver can be held responsible for damages suffered by the victims. Damages can include medical expenses, pain and suffering and wages lost because of the victim not being able to work.

In the aftermath of an auto accident, financial hardship can occur especially for those unable to earn an income; expenses can pile up in the form of medical costs, funeral and burial expenses and more. Securing auto accident litigation funding could help alleviate some of the financial strain during a pending lawsuit.

Litigation funding differs from traditional loans in several ways. First of all, credit standing and employment history do not matter. Additionally, there are no monthly payments. In fact, repayment is only made if, and when, a settlement is reached. If a plaintiff fails to recover damages, the “lawsuit loan” is not repaid at all. Once a client is approved for funding, Litigation Funding Corporation can provide the cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. There are absolutely no restrictions on how the money is used.

Have you or a loved one been involved in auto accident where another party is at fault? Do you have an attorney? Are you suing for damages? Consider auto accident litigation funding to help you with finances until your settlement is received. For more information, contact Litigation Funding Corporation today!
