18-Wheeler, Wintry Conditions and Speed Prove Fatal

It was a cold, wintry day in Oregon last January 25. The roads were snowy and slush-covered, reducing the speed for most motorists. A woman was headed to work when the driver of an 18-wheeler pulling two trailers sped around a curve, lost control, crossed the center line into oncoming traffic, and slammed head-on into the woman’s Toyota 4-Runner. The woman died instantly. Now, her husband and children are suing the truck driver and his employer for negligence and wrongful death for an unspecified amount. Obviously, this fatal motor vehicle accident has completely devastated the family. A person who kills someone through negligence, recklessness or a deliberate act, harms not only the victim, but the victim’s family that depended on the deceased for emotional and, sometimes, financial support. This family has not only lost a wife and mother, but her companionship, income, and benefits.

The plaintiffs hope this wrongful death lawsuit provides a measure of justice for needlessly causing the death of their loved one. According to the suit, the trucking company was negligent, careless and reckless in the hiring, training and supervision of the driver, and it knew, or reasonably should have known, that the driver was incompetent or unfit to be driving the 18-wheeler. The lawsuit also alleges that the trucker was driving at speeds greater than were reasonable or lawful under the weather conditions.

Serious and fatal auto accidents are devastating physically, emotionally, and often times financially. The wheels of justice can turn very slowly, so slowly that plaintiffs may experience financial hardship awaiting resolution to their lawsuit. To avoid financial struggles, a plaintiff can apply for lawsuit funding; this is cash now, a lawsuit cash advance, to assist the family with medical bills, mortgage payments, funeral expenses, and other necessary expenses while waiting for the case to resolve.

An application for litigation funding can be completed online or by phone
. The process is free, there are no credit checks, and employment is not necessary because a “lawsuit loan” is made only against the lawsuit. It is based on the case and its potential for compensation, not against you or your creditworthiness. So, if you have a case that you think will qualify for funding, call a professional legal finance company; don’t settle your valuable case for pennies on the dollar because you need cash now. Let Lawsuit Financial provide you with the time you need to wait out the legal process and get the compensation your case deserves.

If you or a loved one has filed a lawsuit and struggling financially to make ends meet and considering accepting an offer from the insurance company that you know is less than case value, you owe it to yourself to contact a reputable lawsuit funding company. The call is free; the advice is priceless.
