Every year thousands of teens die in traffic accidents-often as a result of the teenage driver’s excessive speed, lack of experience, or inattention. A speeding driver, especially and inexperienced one, is less able to negotiate turns and to steer around hazards. It is relatively easy to lose control and collide with another vehicle or an obstacle such as a guardrail or pole. Serious injuries and fatalities are a likely outcome.
Three 17-year-olds were killed and two injured when their speeding Jaguar went off the road, crashed through a guardrail and careened into the river. The vehicle came to a stop on its side halfway in the water. Four of the teens were ejected from the vehicle; only one was wearing a seat belt and had to be rescued from the water by firefighters. Three of the four occupants ejected were pronounced dead at the scene. The two survivors were taken to a local hospital; one remains in critical condition. After pulling the vehicle out of the river, investigators found “remnants of alcohol,” but said they would not know if the occupants were under the influence until the toxicology reports came back. It is still unknown who was driving the vehicle or if other factors besides speed contributed to the fatal accident.
Some of the families may decide to file a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit against the young driver. While a lawsuit can help, they usually take some time to reach a settlement or a verdict. Meanwhile, bills must be paid; can sometimes encounter financial strain. Lawsuit funding, a lawsuit cash advance, can ease this predicament.
The main purpose of lawsuit funding is to help plaintiffs survive financially during the litigation process so that they are not forced to accept less than a fair settlement just because they need money now.
Lawsuit funding can assist with mortgage/rent payments, funeral costs, medical expenses, and other household living expenses. There is no credit check or employment verification in applying for funding. A lawsuit cash advance is available by phone or online, and is contingent on the outcome of your case. The only collateral needed is a pending lawsuit. Approvals can be made within 24 – 48 hours. If approved, there are no payments until the case settles. If the case is lost, there is no repayment.
