This Austin, Texas motor vehicle accident involved two men who were awarded $1.5 million for injuries they sustained in an 18-wheeler wreck. One of the victims sustained a fractured vertebra and the other a serious right knee injury that needed reconstructive surgery. He was also diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injury.
The lawsuit was filed against the trucking company that operated the tractor trailer involved in the crash. The suit alleged that the company was negligent in hiring the truck driver and, in turn, that the truck driver was negligent in causing the crash. The jury awarded $750,000 in medical bills and expenses and an additional $750,000 for disfigurement, physical impairment and pain and suffering.
The wheels of justice in a commercial carrier case turn slowly. Plaintiffs often experience financial distress while awaiting resolution of their cases. To prevent financial disaster, the plaintiffs in this case, either or both, would have been able to make separate applications for lawsuit funding to assist them with medical bills and other important bills and expenses while waiting out the process for a fair settlement or verdict.
Legal finance companies can usually be reached by phone or online. A litigation funding application can be completed by either method. The process does not cost anything; your credit or job history do not matter. To obtain a lawsuit cash advance, you need only have a case worthy of funding. That determination is made between your attorney and your helpful lawsuit funding representative. Pre-settlement funding requires no upfront fee payments, in fact, there are no monthly payments or payments of any kind due, until you successfully resolve your case. This is a no-hassle way to secure a ‘lawsuit loan’; you will not have to accept too little, too soon from a stingy and stubborn insurance company. You will now have the time to wait out the process and get the compensation that your case deserves.
