If You Had Some Beer, Don’t Put It In Gear!

A drunk driver has no recollection of a hit and run accident which left a woman dead. The woman stopped at the State Police barracks in Andover, MA to pick up a police report for a minor accident involving her husband. As she was returning to her vehicle, the 30-year-old woman was struck by the drunk driver. The driver then struck the woman’s vehicle in which her mother was a passenger. As he attempted to flee the scene of the accident, the victim’s mother ran into the barracks to call for help. When the drunk driver was apprehended by police, he had no recollection of the accident. He allegedly told a trooper, “Did I hit somebody? A pedestrian? I don’t remember.” After failing three sobriety tests, the man admitted to having a few beers at a friend’s house. The woman was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Serious injury and fatal accidents are usually seriously contested by the people or companies that cause them. Financial distress for victims is not uncommon since insurance companies do everything in their power to delay resolving the case and paying settlements, verdicts or judgments. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or died in an auto accident, whether or not it was caused by a drunk driver, you should consult an attorney who specializes in these cases. If you are unsure how to proceed, Lawsuit Financial can provide referral assistance.

Additionally, auto accident lawsuit funding is available to victims and is provided to help a grieving family cover medical expenses, household bills, lost income, and funeral expenses. Do not give in to corporate tactics pressuring you to settle for less. Lawsuit Funding can and often does ease your financial burden, giving your attorney the time needed to obtain full value in your case so you don’t settle too soon, for too little. The application process is easily handled by phone or on the web; the only collateral needed is their pending lawsuit. Approvals take 48 hours or less and they would have access to fast cash to pay their bills right away, as well as future funding to deal with future expenses. A lawsuit cash advance is contingent on the outcome of your case. You read that correctly: Repayment is excused if you lose.

Remember, all of us are responsible for our actions and all of us must face the consequences of those actions. Your actions can and do affect others; serious auto accidents are usually preventable. Don’t make careless decisions. Act responsibly; drive responsibly!
