Drunk Mows Down Innocent Pedestrian


Sometimes it isn’t even safe to go for a walk. In this case, a middle aged woman was out for a walk down the boulevard when she was hit from behind by a pickup truck. When EMS crews got to the scene, found her to be critically ill, but alive. They transported her to a local hospital, where she died. was still alive.

The 70 year-old driver of the pickup, received minor injuries in the accident; he was arrested and booked for DUI and vehicular manslaughter. A DUI at aged 70;one would think that at his age, he would know better than to drink and drive, but obviously not. The police have launched a detailed investigation into the incident.

The family of the unfortunate victim of this tragedy will likely talk to a wrongful death lawyer to discuss potential civil litigation. A civil lawsuit is filed for compensation and is separate and distinct from any criminal proceedings filed against the drunk. The loss of a family member almost always results in financial difficulty for the victim's survivors. While they are discussing the case with an attorney, they might also want to ask about lawsuit funding. A 'lawsuit loan' would help them financially to get through to verdict or settlement.

When they apply for a lawsuit cash advance, they only need to provide case details to the litigation funding company. Once approved, they receive their pre-settlement funding within 24-48 hours. They don’t have to pay upfront fees or make monthly payments and once the lawsuit loan arrives, they may use it to pay for medical bills and any other costs related to the accident. The money may then be used to pay for the “regular” expenses we all have every month, like a mortgage or the rent, car payments or tuition.

The best thing about lawsuit financing is that it removes the financial desperation to accept any nonsense offers from the greedy insurance company, which deliberately drags the proceeding down to cause financial pain.
