Three people were killed and several others injured in a multi-vehicle crash on the Long Island Expressway in Queens. According to police, the driver of a 2010 Infiniti sedan was traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed when he lost control and struck a guardrail just before 4:00 a.m. The Infiniti was torn in two; three people were ejected from the vehicle. One half of the vehicle slammed into a second car. After a dump truck exiting the LIE slammed on its brakes to avoid the crash, three trailing cars slammed into one another. The crashes prompted authorities to close the eastbound lanes for nearly four hours. The three ejected passengers were pronounced dead at the scene; two survivors in the Infiniti were hospitalized, one in critical condition. Injured victims in the other vehicles were also transported to local hospitals for injuries. The crash comes just ten days after six people were killed and six others injured in a Suffolk County crash on the LIE — with authorities blaming that wreck on a speeding driver, as well. An investigation is ongoing.
While there are still many unanswered questions in this fatal auto accident, victims and the families of lost loved ones may wish to consult an experienced auto accident attorney to understand their rights. An experienced attorney will review the case and determine the best way to obtain compensation for the damages.
Although a lawsuit can help obtain compensation for their loss, the litigation process usually takes some time to reach a settlement or a verdict. Meanwhile, victims may encounter financial strain; the bills must be paid. Litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance, can ease this predicament.
The main purpose of auto accident litigation funding is to help plaintiffs survive financially during the litigation process so that they are not forced to accept less than a fair settlement just because they need immediate cash. With a lawsuit cash advance they can avoid foreclosure or evictions, pay medical expenses or funeral costs, and pay other pressing household living expenses. There is no credit check or employment verification in applying for funding. A lawsuit cash advance is available by phone or online, and is contingent on the outcome of your case. The only collateral needed is a pending lawsuit. Approvals can be made within 24 — 48 hours. If approved, there are no payments until the case settles. If the case is lost, there is no repayment.
