Last month a 26-year-old was killed on the Florida Turnpike. Last week, a wrong-way driver collided with a sheriff’s deputy, killing them both. This week, a Honda van collided head-on with a cab driver; both drivers were dead at the scene.
A Florida Department of Transportation study released last year found that there were about 280 wrong-way crashes on interstates and expressways across the state between 2009 to 2013, with nearly one in five being fatal. The Florida Highway Patrol said the majority are caused by impaired drivers. Officials said they are working to install wrong-way driver alert systems, which would notify the wrong-way driver, law enforcement and other motorists on the road of possible danger. Drivers should also be extra cautious when driving at night or during the early morning hours, when the majority of wrong-way crashes happen.
If you have been injured in a wrong-way accident or lost a love one due to a crash, immediately contact an attorney. While a wrong-way accident may seem easy to prove and often settle through negotiations without having to file a lawsuit, there are cases when an insurance company is unreasonable in making a fair offer forcing the victim into a lawsuit. Once the suit is filed, the innocent victim can apply for auto accident lawsuit funding.
Lawsuit funding is a cash received in advance of a settlement that, hopefully, permits victims to deal with their crucial expenses right away, enabling them to wait out the long, legal process and achieve appropriate justice. It cost nothing to apply and if approved, the money can arrive within 24 – 48 hours. The process begins with completing a one-page application upon which time the funding company will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for documentation. Funding is based solely on the strength of the lawsuit; there are no credit checks or employment verification. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles; if the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.
If you or someone you love has been involved in a wrong-way auto accident, or suffered a serious injury in any other type of auto accident caused by the negligence of another, contact Lawsuit Financial, a leading provider of lawsuit funding throughout the United States.
