The driver of an 18-wheeler seems to have ignored the clear signs that warned of a construction zone ahead.
The truck carried a full load as the driver coasted down a slight downhill stretch. Without any indication of braking, the trucker rear-ended an SUV, shoving it into another vehicle, leading to a six-car chain reaction pile up. The SUV burst into flames, killing a mother, her two children, and two other passengers. The driver of a second SUV also perished in the accident.
Initial reports did not indicate that the trucker was impaired or distracted in anyway prior to impact. The truck driver stated he just didn’t notice the signs until it was too late. Further investigation into the trucker, and the trucking company, showed their trucks were cited in 75 accidents over the last two-years. One crash was fatal, and 23 other accidents resulted in at least one serious injury.
The families of the deceased will most likely file a wrongful death lawsuit. In the meantime, they may be faced with some serious issues trying to meet their monthly bills. To allow them to get to a settlement or trial, the best answer to deal with their financial needs would be to apply for litigation funding.
Pre-settlement funding is designed for plaintiffs in need of an emergency cash advance to help them get back on their feet financially, pay their extraordinary and usual bills, and still have funds left to help with other expenses. Paying for five funerals and burials would result in a significant bill.
A lawsuit cash advance, once the case is assessed and approved, arrives in the plaintiff’s bank account within 24-48 hours. It is direct deposit, and access is immediate on arrival. Most plaintiffs will use the funds to pay medical, funeral and burial expenses, and also keep up-to-date with monthly household expenses, such as the mortgage or car payments.
Legal financing allows the plaintiff time to move forward with their lives after such a wrenching loss. Lawsuit cash advances may be applied for online, or by calling the litigation funding company directly. With a legal funding company, you are treated with respect and dignity. Contact a legal funding expert to see if litigation funding is a good fit for your situation.
