Teenage Driver Injures Three Due to Eating While Driving

I have written multiple articles and blogs about the dangers of distracted driving. Mobile phone use and texting while driving have been frequent and appropriate targets. Accident statistics clearly demonstrate that distracted driving is dangerous; doing anything at the same time you are driving tons of machinery at high speeds is not a great idea. Here is an example:

This Colorado case involves a family of three; they were hit by a teenage driver while out for a leisurely bike ride. The seventeen year old plowed into the three cyclists as they were crossing the street at a pedestrian crosswalk. They had activated the flashing lights at the crosswalk and they were flashing as they crossed. The young driver said he didn’t see the flashing lights. The police discovered he’d been eating his lunch while trying to drive and was distracted. He will be charged with reckless driving.

The mother and her 10 year old child sustained non life threatening injuries, but the 7 year old was critically injured. He was air lifted to a hospital that specializes in serious head and back injuries. He was listed in critical condition and there is a good chance he sustained a traumatic brain injury that may affect him for the rest of his life.

This family is devastated, with three members injured and incredibly high medical bills. They will obviously consider the filing of a personal injury lawsuit. Serious injury auto accidents are often hard-fought and take long periods of time to resolve. Families who find themselves in contentious litigation may need some interim financial assistance. These families should investigate and consider lawsuit funding as a means of support while litigation is pending. A lawsuit cash advance would allow the family regroup financially, pay their regular expenses (mortgage, car payments, tuition, food) as well as those extraordinary expenses resulting from the accident (medical bills, physical therapy, etc.).

Automobile accident lawsuit funding
relieves the financial pressure to settle a valuable case too early, for too little. Job status or credit ratings do not matter; all Lawsuit Financial cares about is the quality of your case. And, we take all the risk; if your case does not resolve in your favor, we will excuse the debt. That’s right, is you lose the case, you keep our money without obligation to repay. This is called non-recourse lawsuit funding. Applying for lawsuit funding is quick and easy; if you are approved, you can have lawsuit cash in your hands within 24 hours.

The future may be very difficult for the 7-year old if he does have traumatic brain injury and the expenses will be catastrophic. In securing a legal finance services, the parents would be able to sit tight and wait out the long legal process for an appropriate settlement or verdict, without having to settle too early for too little because of pressing financial issues.
