One of the most common causes of auto accidents on our roadways is fatigue; it is not be illegal, but it can be lethal. If you drive drowsy, you are putting yourself and others at risk. As the industry leader in auto accident litigation funding, Lawsuit Financial has seen first-hand, the devastating results of an accident due to driver fatigue.
A North Carolina man was fatally injured after being struck head-on by a dump truck; he died at the scene. Although the cause of the accident is still under investigation, it appears that a surgical resident crossed into oncoming traffic and hit the truck, causing it to swerve and hit the victim’s vehicle. Fatigue appears to have been a factor; the surgical resident had just completed a 12-plus hour shift at the hospital.
The victim’s family consulted an experienced auto accident attorney and subsequently filed a lawsuit. As the suit dragged on, they family exhausted their savings. They were facing foreclosure and struggling just to meet monthly expenses. Rather than settling for less than case value, the family applied for litigation funding.
Obtaining litigation funding is a smart strategic move because it removes a victim’s pressure to settle too soon for too little, simply to obtain immediate and necessary cash. This cash advance is money against the future settlement to help pay bills – funeral and burial expenses, mortgage payments, car payments, and important expenses until a settlement is reached. Although often referred to as a “lawsuit loan,” there is no application or upfront fees, no monthly payments, no credit checks and no hassles. The only qualification to be eligible is attorney representation and a case with merit. Once a plaintiff is approved for funding, the money arrives fast, typically within 24-48 hours.
If you find yourself in need of financial help as a result of serious injuries or the death of a loved one in an auto accident, consider litigation funding. We accept all the risk, meaning that the lawsuit cash advance does not get repaid if the case does not reach a settlement or other recovery. Call us toll-free at 1-877-443-4711.
Remember – fatigue makes us less alert to what is happening on the road and less able to react quickly and safely if a dangerous situation arises. Eliminating the risk will go a long way to preventing serious and fatal auto accidents.
