Elderly woman killed in pedestrian accident

Even crossing in a designated crosswalk can result in sudden death to a pedestrian.

An 81-year-old woman in San Jose was hit by a car as she was crossing an avenue. Emergency response crews pronounced her death at the scene. The police managed to apprehend the driver of the vehicle involved in the accident, but there are still details to be investigated. While the driver has cooperated with the police, many questions remain as they have been unable to locate eyewitnesses. Did the woman step off the curb in front of the car? Was the driver speeding? Was there a clearly marked crosswalk?

The woman’s family may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit, and will likely need an infusion of cash to be able to meet all of their financial obligations while waiting for a trial. Cases such as this may be settled out of court, but to ensure a fair settlement or jury award, they still need to be represented. To obtain a lawsuit loan, the family members can apply to a litigation funding company, either online, or by making a call. It is an easy process to apply and very user friendly. The people who handle lawsuit loan applications understand that the plaintiffs are under stress and typically treat applicants with great courtesy and respect. Applicants need only to provide case details and the name of the attorney handling their case. From there, the lawsuit loan company processes the forms, and then quickly sends the amount projected for a settlement directly to the plaintiff’s bank. Typically, this happens within 24 to 48 hours.

Plaintiffs do not need to be working when they apply, make any upfront payments, or monthly payments, or go through a credit check. If they lose their case in court, they keep the money, free and clear. Often this lawsuit loan is a much-needed Godsend for financially desperate plaintiffs. It’s definitely worth checking out.
