On December 6, police responded to a fatal auto-pedestrian crash in Clifton Park, New York. Upon arrival at the scene, they found a 30-year-old man through the windshield of a BMW. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the BMW was not injured; there were no signs that she was intoxicated or impaired. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
If the motorist is determined to have been at fault, she could be held responsible for the pedestrian’s wrongful death. A wrongful death attorney can ensure that the family’s rights are protected and decide the best course of action in recovering the maximum compensation for funeral and burial expenses, anticipated and future lifetime earnings, loss of love, care and companionship, and other damages related to this pedestrian accident.
While the family may eventually receive a financial settlement to compensate them for their loss, they may experience a shortfall in their finances that could lead to a significant financial hardship. The last thing they should do is agree to an early settlement for less than full case value. A service called lawsuit funding can help ease the financial burden until a settlement or verdict is achieved. The plaintiff, then has the luxury of waiting out the litigation process.
Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance meaning if the plaintiff loses his/her case, the lawsuit funding is excused and the money does not have to be repaid. The only eligibility requirements for funding are attorney representation and a strong case. There are no application fees, credit checks, employment history verifications, or monthly payments. Once an application is completed and case documentation is received, our underwriters will review the case for funding. If approved, we can wire transfer or overnight mail the cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. It really is that simple!
If you are seriously injured or lose a loved one in a pedestrian-auto accident that was not your fault (or, was only partially your fault), you may be able to recover damages for medical bills, loss wages, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of financial support, and funeral expenses. Contact a personal injury attorney who specializes in handling pedestrian accidents. Once your case is filed, if you are struggling financially, don’t let bills pile up and ruin your credit and don’t give in to corporate tactics pressuring you to settle for less than you deserve.
