Trucking Accidents: A Leading Cause of Injury and Death

Would it surprise you to know that there are over 500,000 truck accidents on US highways every year? How about that those accidents result in at least 5,000 fatalities?

Why so many truck accidents? Most result from a variety of factors, driver fatigue, alcohol and drugs, speed, failing to signal intentions, distracted driving, improper loading, weather conditions, equipment failure are leading causes. Often, it is the vehicle that came in contact with the truck that causes the accident. Automobile drivers, not truckers, may be guilty of many of the causes listed above.

When a passenger vehicle comes in contact with a large truck, the outcome is rarely pretty. Survivors of such a crash will often have catastrophic injuries; many will lose their lives. If you have survived a collision with a big truck, or, if you are a survivor of someone who was killed in an accident, it is a good idea to find out what your rights are in your state or city. Lawsuit Financial advises that you seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney who specializes in trucking accident litigation. The Lawsuit Financial Attorney Referral Program will assist you in locating an expert attorney where you live or where the accident occurred. This is, in our humble opinion, the only way to get the level of compensation you deserve. Insurance companies are not our friends, despite their catchy slogans. They are not “good neighbors”, they will not give you “fast, fair, and friendly service”, you are never “in good hands”. Insurance companies will make it their mission and do everything in their power (and they have a lot of power) to delay justice and to reduce or deny your claim. The great equalizer is an experienced attorney.

Even a great lawyer cannot prevent the case from taking a long time to resolve. If you have been badly hurt, you might be worried about your short or long term financial situation. If you are seriously injured or disabled, or, if you are the survivor of someone who was killed in an accident, how will you pay your regular bills and expenses and/or those that are related to the accident?

The easy answer is “lawsuit funding“. Never heard of it? This is a service that provides a quick review of your pending case, and a lawsuit cash advance against that pending case. The best part is that if, for some reason you lose the case, you can keep the legal finance company’s money and you don’t have to pay it back. That’s right, you only have to repay the money if you win your case. Lawsuit funding will take away the financial pressure to settle early and inexpensively and permit you to wait for a fair settlement or verdict. With a lawsuit cash advance, you will be able to pay all your bills now and, if necessary, in the future, until your lawsuit is resolved. It is easy to apply for litigation funding, and, if you are approved, it will arrives in 24-48 hours or less. This is something to think about when doing battle with powerful insurance and corporate interests.
