Three Lawsuits Follow Fatal Auto Accident Caused By Underage Drunk Driver

Three lawsuits have now been filed against a now 20-year-old who killed two teens and injured another last year while driving “super drunk” on a Michigan highway. The fatal crash occurred on U.S. 23 in Pittsfield Township about 4 p.m. July 3, 2014, when the freeway was filled with holiday traffic. The drunk driver was headed north in a pickup truck when he crossed the median and crashed head-on into a Mercury Sable carrying the teenagers. His BAC was .22 percent, according to the lawsuits. The lawsuits also claim his parents are responsible for furnishing the alcohol that made the underage driver intoxicated, even if they didn’t knowingly supply it. An attorney for one of the plaintiffs said that the teen had access to alcohol because his father brews his own beer at their home and that his parents knew or should have known that their son was an alcoholic. Each lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $25,000.

Wrongful death take time to pursue, even with the best lawyers available. The time between filing the lawsuit and its ultimate settlement could be years. Meanwhile, bills must still be paid and plaintiffs often find themselves in the unfortunate situation where they are strapped for cash. Lawsuit funding is specifically designed to help plaintiffs pay immediate bills and have money on hand for future expenses as they await case resolution and a settlement. The only requirements to be eligible for funding is attorney representation and case with merit.

Once a funding application is received, our underwriters will review case documentation provided by the plaintiff’s attorney. If approved, the money can be available within 24 – 48 hours. There are no upfront cost, no credit checks and no restrictions on the money’s use. Lawsuit funding transactions are ‘non-recourse’, which means repayment is only made if, and when the lawsuit is won and settled. In the event the plaintiff loses, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety.

If you or a family member have been directly affected by an accident similar to this one and struggling financially while awaiting a settlement, why worry about money when a lawsuit cash advance would ease the immediate burden?
