Tractor-Trailer Rear End Collision Results in Death, Verdict

A young man was rear-ended in an auto accident when he stopped for a traffic back-up on the highway. A tractor-trailer slammed into him without any attempt to slow down or apply the brakes. The young man’s brother was traveling ahead of him in another vehicle. He saw the accident in his rea-view mirror, stopped and rushed to his brother's aid and tried CPR; sadly, his brother had died, instantly.

What a heart wrenching ordeal for this family. The family filed a wrongful death lawsuit, and, years later, was awarded $1.3 million, despite the defendant’s argument that the young man’s headlights and taillights were not working properly. The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one is devastating, especially when it is due to the negligence of an inattentive driver. The survivors want to seek justice, but full value may be years away and the family is already struggling financially. There may be medical bills, mortgage, car payments, tuition, and funeral expenses. Filing a lawsuit may add additional expense, plus the family must relive events that cause significant pain and suffering.

However, justice must be served; there is hope that a lawsuit will prevent such horrific acts from happening to someone else. So then, how does the family see this litigation through to conclusion? How does it survive, financially, while awaiting justice from a judge, jury or settlement? The answer is lawsuit funding.

Legal finance services are provided in the form of a non-recourse, lawsuit cash advance; this means that the advance and profit due are only required if the case resolves in the plaintiff’s favor. The best way to use litigation funding is as leverage. The litigation process can take months, sometimes years to settle. Since insurance companies have all the time and money in the world, there are many situations where the plaintiff may feel the need to take a low settlement offer simply because he/she is having financial difficulties caused by injuries suffered in the accident. Insurance companies know the client is hurting; they know he/she is disabled; they know the client is suffering financially.

Lawsuit financing is the means to allowing a plaintiff to avoid this type of tactic. All the plaintiff needs to do is fill out an application form online or call the pre-settlement funding company directly for information. Once their case is approved, the lawsuit cash advance will arrive by check or wire within 24-48 hours. Plaintiffs pay no monthly fee. They only repay the cash advance if they win their case. If their case is lost, the legal funding would be theirs to keep, without any obligation to repay.
