New Reporter Becomes "News" in Florida Auto Accident

Instead of reporting the news, this reporter became the news. A two vehicle automobile accident sent a local Florida reporter to hospital. The violent crash occurred when a driver ran a red light and hit a TV news van. The reporter, Claire Metz, was taken to hospital for treatment of her injuries.

According to local investigating police, the driver of a westbound pickup truck, Drew Clark, evidently reached down to retrieve a shoe that had fallen near his feet, inside the truck. As he bent over, he took his eye off the road, ran the red light and slammed into the TV news van that had just entered the intersection. The van driver sustained unknown injuries; the reporter suffered the major force of the impact, as Clark plowed into the passenger’s side of the van. The impact was so severe that the van rolled and came to rest on the driver’s side. EMS crews took the injured to various hospitals, dependent on the severity of injury. The 24-year old pickup truck driver was charged with careless driving.

Based upon the police and eye witness reports, the pick-up driver will be on the wrong end of a personal injury lawsuit. Depending upon injuries and the sufficiency of insurance proceeds, the occupants of the van could have a valuable personal injury case. After talking to an attorney and determining to pursue a lawsuit, these folks may find themselves injured and disabled, without adequate resources to wait out the long legal process and recover damages for their injuries and disabilities. They would be wise to research lawsuit funding. Lawsuit funding, or litigation funding, as it is sometimes called, will help these victims deal with their regular bills as well as those related to their injuries, medical, hospital, and/or therapy bills, while they wait for a settlement or jury verdict.

A lawsuit cash advance would help the reporter and crew, if injuries prevent them from working, with all regular and injury related expenses, without having to worry about settling their cases to soon for too little compensation, just to get the bills paid.

Legal finance services are a good solution to situations like this, as they would allow the plaintiffs to not only deal with their current expenses, immediately, but an ethical and compassionate provider of this service would also provide additional advances, for future needs, as victims wait for their case to be resolved.
