A California jury awarded a disabled motorcyclist $31.5 million, finding The State of California, Department of Transportation (Caltrans), 15% responsible for the man’s injuries and the driver who hit him, 85% at fault. The settlement will help the victim receive the 24-hour nursing care he will need for the rest of his life due to severe brain damage and spinal cord injuries.

The lawsuit alleged that not only was the other driver careless and negligent, but that the state failed to fix a road they knew was dangerous. The intersection has been nicknamed “Death Highway” and “Blood Alley” because of numerous hazards to drivers.

During the investigation, evidence showed that Caltrans’ Chief of Operations received a complaint over a year ago about the dangerous intersection, but action was taken even though there had been ten previous accidents at the same site.

An investigation is underway in a fatal auto accident that may be the result of distracted driving. The driver of a Ford Taurus crossed the center line striking a moped head-on. The 55-year-old mail carrier died instantly; she was on her way to work. The driver of the Taurus and a passenger were unharmed.

No legal action can ever bring back a loved, but the family of the deceased will, most likely, seek the advice of an experienced automobile accident attorney. The attorney will work with the investigative team to reconstruct the accident. During this time, the victim’s family will be faced with additional expenses, such as funeral and burial expenses, resulting from their loss. An experienced and reputable lawsuit funding company may be able to help this family if they are struggling financially during the litigation process.

Litigation funding is a cash advance against a pending suit; it is a service to help financially strapped plaintiffs avoid settling too soon, for too little. All that is needed to qualify for legal finance services is a valid lawsuit handled by an experienced attorney.
