Not a Deer, A Wrongful Death-Hit and Run

North Carolina Police got quite the shock recently when they responded to a “dead deer on the road” call. The officers figured it had been hit while trying to cross the road. What they found when they got there was the body of a woman; Judy Siegel.

As near as the police could tell, it looked like this unfortunate woman may have hit a tire on the road or hit a back tire on a tractor-trailer. Whatever she hit, it caused her vehicle to veer off the road and slam into a guardrail. Judy may have been ok; she got out of her car and walked out onto the highway. At that point, she was struck one car, then, apparently, several more. The first vehicle that hit her didn’t stay to report the accident; Judy’s death was the result of a hit and run. Other drivers, whose cars encountered her body, did stop at the scene.

The family is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Is it possible to sustain a lawsuit under these circumstances? Yes, it is. One way is to identify the driver of the first car that hit Judy; police are investigating. Evidence collected at the scene may reveal more information about the vehicles involved. If the family chooses to hire an investigator, he/she may find other witnesses to the series of events that led to Judy’s death. Area body shops may have information leading back to the people involved in running over Judy and leaving her dead in the middle of the road.

If the family retains an attorney hired to pursue the case, a claim may exist against Judy’s personal uninsured auto insurance policy (Uninsured and underinsured coverage is something that every driver in America should have. If you don't have it, call your insurance agent, right now!). In other words there are various alternatives that would mean this case may have a chance at successfully concluding the case. In the process of waiting for this case to resolve in their favor, families that find themselves in circumstances like the Siegel family will still need to pay their regular bills and the extraordinary bills related to the death of a loved one.

One solution to handling financial problems while waiting for a wrongful death lawsuit to resolve is to seek lawsuit finance services. Lawsuit funding, also referred to as litigation funding, may be sourced to help plaintiffs handle their bills while they wait for an equitable settlement. In most instances, a lawsuit cash advance isn’t that difficult to arrange and will allow the family to pay off their debts.
