Every year thousands of young adults die in traffic accidents—often as a result of the driver’s excessive speed, coupled with the lack of experience, or inattention. Sometimes alcohol may even play a role in a fatal crash. When a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit is filed due to the negligence of someone else, the innocent victims and their families may need financial assistance to help pay mounting medical bills or funeral and burial expenses. For those struggling financially, litigation funding can often be the only means to avoid debt.
Warren, Ohio residents are mourning the death of six teens fatally injured when a sport utility vehicle smashed into a guardrail and flipped over into a swampy pond. Five male passengers and the female driver died in the accident. Two other passengers escaped through a rear window before the vehicle was completed submerged under water. Investigators are focusing on speed as playing a significant role in the accident, but won’t speculate if drugs or alcohol were involved. None of the teens were wearing seat belts.
There is no word whether families of the victims will file a wrongful death lawsuit, but since the investigation is ongoing, these families will not have access to police records for some time. In the event a claim is filed, waiting for a settlement can take a long time, putting a family in financial ruin. Fortunately, litigation funding may be an option.
Litigation funding, a non-recourse cash advance against the future proceeds of the case, can ease the financial burden and give the plaintiff's attorney the time needed to obtain full case value. This immediate funding source allows a plaintiff to take care of their important financial obligations such as medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and important monthly obligations.
The process to apply for a lawsuit cash advance is easy; more importantly, it’s free. Once a plaintiff qualifies for funding, cash can often be available in as little as 24 hours. Additionally, the cash advance is not paid back until the plaintiff successfully settles the case.
