A male driver and two children were killed after being trapped in their Toyota Corolla that was rear-ended and burst into flames on a California roadway. Another man and child were rescued and rushed to the hospital in serious condition. All five individuals in the Toyota were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. The driver of the 2013 Model S Tesla that hit the Corolla suffered minor injuries. A preliminary investigation suggests that alcohol and drugs were not factors in the accident. Investigators are seeking anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
Was the driver speeding or distracted? Was there a mechanical failure or defect? While all the details of this fatal auto accident won’t be known until the investigation is complete, Tesla has been under scrutiny since vehicle fires allegedly resulted from “spontaneous ignitions of batteries” and another attributed to “failure of equipment or heat source.” No matter how this investigation concludes, the family of the victims should seek legal advice from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. A personal injury attorney will help determine if the auto manufacturer was responsible for a defective part, and/or if the accident was due to drive negligence.
Auto accident victims have a number of entitled benefits, which can be lost without the representation of an experienced personal injury attorney. Cases like this take a long time to settle causing immediate and long-term financial problems for victims and families. Lawsuit funding can put victims back in the driver’s seat. With a lawsuit cash advance, they can pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and ongoing monthly bills during the litigation process.
It is free and easy to apply for a lawsuit funding online or by phone. There are also no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. If approved, the lawsuit cash advance would arrive within 24-48 hours by check or by wire. Repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case; if the case is lost, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety. That is correct; the plaintiff would owe nothing.
