A financially desperate plaintiff is not in a favorable position regarding settlement negotiations; this person will often settle for too little, too soon. Lawsuit funding can help plaintiffs take care of their financial obligations while giving their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice.
A Texas family has filed a survival action lawsuit alleging wrongful death and negligence in a fatal May 2014 auto accident. The suit claims that the driver of a tractor trailer was negligent when he slammed into a Dodge pick-up truck as it was existing a parking lot. The driver of the pick-up truck was unresponsive at the scene and subsequently died from his injuries.
The plaintiffs allege that the driver failed to:
• keep proper lookout;
• maintain a safe speed;
• keep safe distance;
• turn, brake, or stop in order to avoid a collision;
• keep the rig in a good working condition.
The lawsuit also cites his company for failing to inspect as well as maintain the truck, and failing to abide by the safety and traffic regulations.
According to the claim, the driver of the pick-up truck was non-responsive at the accident scene; his injuries subsequently took his life. The lawsuit also states that the plaintiffs have incurred substantial medical costs and funeral costs, as well as loss of enjoyments of life, and loss of wages and earning capacity.
Trucking accidents cause thousands of devastating injuries and deaths each year, resulting in lawsuits which can often take an extended time to settle. These cases can also put undue financial pressure on the family as they try to piece their lives back together. Lawsuit funding has helped plaintiffs pay immediate expenses – medical bills, funeral expenses, mortgage or rent payments, credit card debt, but also gives them time to obtain full value for their pain, suffering, and loss. 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 the case is unsuccessful, the repayment is completely waived.
Do not resolve your case for less than full value because of pressing financial need. If you are in a position that you need cash now, contact Lawsuit Financial for a free evaluation of your funding situation.
