You have to wonder how someone can drive the wrong way on a street or ramp. Drugs or booze are often involved.
The news is filled with far too many deaths as a result of wrong-way crashes. There was yet another one in New York, involving a Nissan Maxima and a Dodge Caravan. All reports, police and eyewitness, indicate the Maxima was heading north in the southbound lane. The inevitable happened. It creamed a Dodge Caravan, causing a Mazda to rear-end the Caravan.
Needless to say, given the rate of speed, the male driver of the Nissan and the Caravan’s driver were killed instantly in the carnage. The two occupants of the Mazda made it to the hospital in fairly stable condition but with serious injuries.
There is a lot of clean-up work to do in cases like this. The Nissan only had one occupant, who died at the scene, so the investigation will require autopsy findings to determine why the 26-year-old man was driving the wrong way that night. The police suspect alcohol and/or drugs may have played a factor in this senseless accident. Two were killed ostensibly because someone wanted an extra drink or was driving high.
What will the victims do in this case? It’s highly likely the family of the 53-year-old Caravan driver will file a wrongful death lawsuit. The two surviving individuals in the Mazda will want to talk to a personal injury accident lawyer, and find out how to recover compensation for their injuries. This group of people will have enormous bills and no way to pay them from their regular incomes. What can they do as they wait for justice? They can apply for lawsuit funding.
Litigation funding, also referred to as lawsuit financing, is an emergency loan to an approved plaintiff, to help them handle all of their expenses until their case is resolved. All a plaintiff needs to do to apply for lawsuit settlement funding is to contact a litigation funding company. The case is reviewed and once it is approved, based on the chances it will win, the pre-settlement funding is sent directly to the plaintiff’s bank account.
A lawsuit loan helps the plaintiff get back on their feet financially, and once those pressing necessity bills are paid, they can just wait until their case is decided. There is no pressure to deal with insurance companies, and should the case lose in court, and that does happen sometimes, the plaintiff walks away, keeping the lawsuit funding without any strings attached.
