Studies have shown that many intersection accidents occur due to poor traffic planning and careless and reckless drivers. When a pedestrian is seriously injured, or a family has lost a loved one, it is important to consult an experienced attorney. If a lawsuit is filed against the city and/or negligent driver, and plaintiff is in need of fast cash to pay the bills, a lawsuit cash advance from Lawsuit Financial may be the solution.
A carload of teenagers on their way to high school took a left turn in front of an oncoming vehicle. Their Saab was hit broadside by a Honda before crashing into a third vehicle. A 15-year-old high school student died and four other teens were injured. Police said all the students were wearing their seat belts and speed was not a factor. It appears the only contributing factor was the failure-to-yield.
While all the details of this fatal auto accident won’t be known until the investigation is complete, residents said that the intersection has always been dangerous especially because it is near a school zone. There have been 41 reported accidents at or near the intersection during a five-year period, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation. Of those, four involved a left turn; most involved vehicles that were rear-ended while waiting to turn. The DOT said plans for a traffic signal have been underway for months because a shopping development is being built in the area, which will increase traffic enough to justify a light. Although there is not time frame for the installation, it will be too late for the deceased teen and his family.
The accident was similar to one that took the life of another North Carolina high school student earlier this month. In that accident the teen driver of an SUV turned left in front of an on-coming dump truck. A 15-year-old passenger died a week later from injuries incurred. The 16-year-old driver has been charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.
No matter how long the investigations into these accidents take, the families of the injured and deceased teens should seek legal advice from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. A personal injury attorney will help determine if a government entity was responsible for failing to fulfill make improvements to a dangerous intersection and/or if the accident was due to drive negligence.
Wrongful death and serious injury accidents often cause immediate and long-term financial problems for victims and families. Legal finance services provide both immediate and long-term financial assistance to accident victims. This service, known as lawsuit funding, helps plaintiffs pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and ongoing monthly bills during the litigation process. It is easy to apply for a lawsuit cash advance online or by phone and there are no costs or fees associated with the application. There are also no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. Repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case; if the plaintiff loses their case, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety. That is correct; the plaintiff would owe nothing. Where else can you obtain a “risk-free lawsuit loan“? If approved, the lawsuit cash advance would arrive within 24-48 hours by check or by wire.
