One of the most common lethal driving mistakes is swerving either by not staying in the proper lane, drifting into other lanes, or erratically changing lanes. Swerving can also occur if a driver is going too fast for road conditions, overcompensates, or swerves to avoid a pothole, animal, or debris. Swerving to avoid the debris is a common reaction, but it can also be more devastating than hitting the object.
According to police, the driver of a Jeep Liberty was speeding when he came upon road debris. Swerving to avoid hitting it, he slammed into a pick-up truck. Unfortunately, that began a chain-reaction. The pick-up truck in turn hit a Ford Taurus sending it into a guardrail before overturning. The drivers of the Liberty and pick-up truck escaped with minor injuries; the driver of the Taurus suffered several broken bones and a traumatic brain injury.
Victims of this auto accident should contact an experienced attorney to determine their rights. They may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other damages related to the accident. The unfortunate aspect of road debris claims is proof; the plaintiff must prove that the debris was the cause of the accident; there must be proof that the accident would not have otherwise occurred. Often times, these types of lawsuits will take more time than a plaintiff can financially withstand. Someone else’s poor judgment should not force victims into debt. For plaintiffs in need of financial assistance, litigation funding may be helpful.
Litigation funding is a no-risk solution for any financially-strapped plaintiff. Poor credit? No worries! No job? No worries! No money to make monthly payments? No worries! The only condition to receive funding is a case with merit.
