It May be an “Accident”, But it is Still a Wrongul Death

Last year, 71 year old Mavis Stonick was hit by a car and killed, while crossing an Evanston, Illinois road, last year. The subsequent autopsy showed that her death had been caused by multiple internal injuries resulting from the vehicle impact. The death was ruled an accident by the police and the Coroner. The family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit brought by Julian Stonick, special administrator of Mavis’s estate.

The battle lines in this case are sharply drawn. The driver of the vehicle, Judy Lowrence, and other witnesses state that Mavis was walking against the traffic light. However, witnesses also state that it was dark and raining; the roads would have been slick. Although Lowrence satisfied the police that she was traveling at posted speeds, others say that she was traveling too fast for the road conditions and not paying attention to pedestrians. No one could say for sure if the driver was on a cell phone or texting, or doing something else at the time of the impact.

To prove that this was a case of wrongful death, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant driver was careless and/or negligent; only time will tell whether or not the lawsuit is settled or resolved in favor of the plaintiff. In cases like this, plaintiffs, like Julian Stonick, are often faced with a myriad of bills relating to the death, funeral expenses, taxes, bill settlements and other expenses related not only to a loved one’s death, but to ongoing maintenance of the estate. If the deceased is the family bread winner, the financial situation is even worse. The Stonick family will have to pull together to try and make ends meet while they wait for a fair and equitable settlement.

Julian, and others in her circumstances, might be interested in knowing that litigation funding may be available in the form of a lawsuit cash advance on this wrongful death case, or any other type of personal injury case. If the case qualifies for lawsuit funding, this lawsuit cash advance may be just what is needed to handle the accumulation of bills relating to this case and/or the loss of a loved one. These “lawsuit loans” assist plaintiffs in handling their bills now while the family awaits a verdict or settlement on the case.

Life goes on, bills must be paid; one quick phone call to 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) may immediately solve a plaintiff’s financial dilemma. And the key to this valuable pre-settlement funding service is to reduce financial pressure to settle a case too early for too little. Ask your attorney what your case is worth and how long he/she thinks it will take to achieve maximum results. Evaluate your financial situation, put yourself and your family on a financial diet. Do whatever you can to hold out until you can achieve a maximum recovery. But don’t settle because you can’t afford not to; take comfort in the fact that if you need legal financial assistance from an expert in the legal finance field to achieve the lawsuit result you desire, Lawsuit Financial is just a phone call away.
