In Georgia, Suspected DUI Driver Causes Two Multiple-Injury Accidents

Dec 16, 2014

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) December 16 , 2014 – A white 2003 Ford Ranger, driven by 29-year-old Daniel Gentry, allegedly caused two serious accidents in two different locations in Richmond County, Georgia.

“Multiple-injury accidents are not uncommon for law enforcement. This story spun out in two different locations and caused serious harm to a number of innocent drivers who were in the wrong place at the wrong time,” explained Litigation Funding Corporation representative Daren Monroe.

The first accident was called in as a hit-and-run, with eyewitnesses indicating that the driver fled the scene at a high rate of speed. While police were dealing with that incident, another call came in, dispatching officers to a severe accident on Interstate 20, next to the Warren Road bridge overpass. Two vehicles were involved in that collision, and one of them was the white Ford Ranger registered to Gentry. Both vehicles were flipped over at the scene. It was not immediately clear how many passengers in the 2000 Lincoln Town car were taken to the nearest medical facility.

Police investigating the accident indicated that Gentry may be charged with DUI, driving with a suspended license and reckless driving. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

“The victims may wish to file a civil lawsuit, naming Gentry as the negligent defendant, to ensure they have funds to pay for their medical care. Most victims do not have the cash on hand to pay the high cost of medical care after an accident,” stated Monroe. “However, in situations like this, criminal charges would take precedence in timing over a civil lawsuit to recover compensation for injuries.”

Families seeking compensation may find that applying for pre-settlement funding takes care of their financial problems very quickly. Qualified plaintiffs need only call or fill out an application form online and include all the pertinent facts of their case. They do need to have an attorney-of-record in order to proceed with an application for a lawsuit loan.

Once the litigation funding company has determined if the case being submitted stands a good chance of winning a settlement in court, they send funds via the fastest route possible to a plaintiff’s bank account. Although the funding is typically used to pay everyday expenses, including mortgages, car loans, student loans, rent or utilities, many plaintiffs also pay their medical bills immediately.

The remaining cash acts as a financial buffer, allowing the plaintiff to deal with any expenses that come up while waiting for the case to go to trial or settlement. Litigation funding ensures that a plaintiff does not need to deal with overeager insurance companies hoping he or she would consider settling for less compensation than they may be entitled to in court.
