Accidents between an auto and a tractor-trailer can be serious or deadly for the occupants of the car. Victims, such as those in the case below, may wish to seek litigation funding to relieve financial pressures while waiting for case settlement.
The crash occurred on October 2014 as a family of four was headed home along I-95 in Waterford, CT. As the female driver slowed for traffic congestion caused by an accident up ahead, the tractor-trailer behind her failed to stop slamming into the back of their Nissan Sentra and causing a domino effect involving a total of four vehicles. The driver of the Nissan was seriously injured. Her three-year-old son was killed instantly; her nine-year-old daughter and fiancé died two days later.
Initially, four separate lawsuits were filed naming the truck driver and his employer, Gold Medal Bakery, Inc. and Gold Medal Bagel Bakery, Inc. of Fall River, Mass. and Hartford. Three of the suits were later consolidated by the female driver on behalf of herself and children. A family member of her fiancé filed a separate suit for his wrongful death.
The lawsuits allege negligence and carelessness of behalf of the truck driver for driving with inadequate or defective brakes, speeding, driving when his alertness was impaired by fatigue and not leaving enough distance between vehicles. The suits allege negligence on the part of his employer for failing to properly monitor the inspection and maintenance of the tractor trailer or properly maintain a driving log of the driver. Both lawsuits seek an unspecified amount to pay for extensive medical bills, punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.
It goes without saying that losing a loved one in an auto accident leaves an emotional scar on any family. In the midst of the grief, it is hard to deal with the financial consequences, but cases like this are a perfect candidate for litigation funding.
During a complex and time-consuming lawsuit, Lawsuit Financial can provide a lawsuit cash advance to assist with mortgage/rent payments, funeral costs, medical expenses, and other household living so the plaintiffs can wait for a full and fair settlement that holds the defendants responsible. To qualify, a plaintiff needs attorney representation and a case with merit; that’s all – no credit checks, employment verification or collateral is necessary. Once an application is approved, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. No payments are made until the case settles. If, for some reason our client does not successfully settle, the repayment is completely waived.
It is no longer necessary to allow corporate defense attorneys to force you to settle prematurely for a fraction of case value.
