This car-van accident was horrific and cost one person his life while injuring six others in a monumental conflagration.
This story starts out like most do, everyone was going out to have a good day and something awful happened along the way. This head-on collision, between a Toyota Camry and a van, caused a deadly fire.
Witnesses noted that the van was speeding along the road when it suddenly swerved over the center median, right into the path of the oncoming Toyota Camry. The impact was so catastrophic that the van flipped several times and burst into flames.
The collision caused a fuel spill and downed utility wires. Given the involvement of downed power lines and associated dangers, roughly 50 fire rescue workers were dispatched to the scene, in addition to EMS crews.
Those who survived the crash were taken to the hospital. Amazingly, the driver of the van survived the crash and fire. Unfortunately, the driver of the car did not make it and was pronounced dead at the scene. There were four children in the Camry; all were taken to hospital in serious or critical condition.
The van driver and a passenger were both taken to hospital for treatment of burns sustained in the crash. The police are looking into whether or not the van driver may have been under the influence of a controlled substance.
Clearly, the family of the Camry driver will want to speak to a personal injury attorney quickly to determine their rights in this situation and inquire about filing personal injury lawsuits for surviving children. A wrongful death lawsuit for the Camry driver is inevitable. The sudden death of a loved one is a harsh blow to any family; family members may need funding to carry on, pay bills, pay for a funeral and burial, and perhaps, for future bills and expenses. Where will the money come from?
This family, and others in similar situations, may be interested in litigation funding. Funding is provided in the form of a lawsuit cash advance against the future settlement or verdict expected, or predicted by your attorney. Victims may use their lawsuit cash advances to pay for medical treatments, funeral expenses, mortgage payments, car payments and other bills while they’re waiting for a settlement. Lawsuit financing is contingent on recovery; if you lose your case, you don’t pay the lawsuit cash advance back.
