While injuries sustained in a rear-end crash may appear to be minor, they may develop into something worse. Never sign off on accident injuries until speaking to a lawyer.
Eight people were sent to hospital as a result of two Metro buses in Washington, DC, being rear-ended the same day. The first smack-up was in the morning, during rush hour, when the first bus was rear-ended by a truck. There were several passengers on the morning bus that complained of neck and back pain, but their injuries were not classified as life threatening.
The second collision was also caused by a vehicle slamming into the back of a stopped Metro bus during the evening rush hour. Another eight were taken to the nearest medical facility for checkups. Both accidents will be fully investigated.
Of the 16 people who were hurt in these two bus crashes, there may be at least one or two that would choose to speak to a personal injury lawyer about filing a lawsuit for their injuries and to recover any medical expenses. While the injuries did not appear to be too serious, back and neck injuries have a way of manifesting themselves later.
This is one of the major reasons why it is wise to talk to a lawyer about your accident and not sign off anything with an insurance company. Signing off your claim and then discovering you have worse injuries will mean there is nothing you can do to recover any expenses.
Those that chose to sue for the negligence of the vehicles that rear-ended the buses, because their injuries did turn out to be worse than anticipated, may want to consider checking into the possibility of applying for lawsuit funding. Litigation funding isn’t a well-known service, but it is starting to come into its own, the more people find out about it.
Applying for a lawsuit cash advance is often the best way for a financially strapped plaintiff to get funds up front to deal with medical bills and usual bills while they wait for their case to go through court. It is not difficult to fill out an application online or call the litigation funding company for information on how the process works.
One call is usually all it takes for the plaintiff’s case to be accepted, based on its chances of winning in court. Once the legal funding is OK’d, it is sent by check or by wire within 48 hours or less. The lawsuit loan company does not waste time once a case is approved. They want the plaintiff to get back on their feet financially as soon as they can.
Litigation funding is a good option for some people and not for others. It is up to you to decide if the funding process will work in your situation when you check things out.
