Driver distractions are so much a part of lives that we don’t give them a second thought. Unfortunately, distracted driving accidents can be deadly. Once you, or a loved one, are the fatality — it’s too late!
In the aftermath of a recent accident, a surviving family member admits she has been a distracted driver. “It’s just like, you never think you would hurt somebody doing that, but it happens,” she said.
Her 31-year-old sister died in what police believe was a distracted driving crash. As the woman’s fiancé slowed to stop for traffic on I-35W in St. Paul, an SUV slammed into them from behind at highway speed. The woman died from brain injuries; her fiancé survived, but also suffered brain injuries. The deceased woman leaves behind a 2-year-old daughter. Police have not provided details as to how the driver was distracted, but said criminal charges are a possibility.
While the deceased in this case was a victim of distracted driving, the message still remains – it is time to we all stop ignoring the facts that distracted driving kills. With more distracted drivers on the road, it is important to practice safety driving precautions. However, sometimes accidents do happen. If you have been injured, or lost a loved one, in an accident involving a distracted driver, contact an experienced attorney to understand your rights. You may be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills, property damage, funeral expenses, lost wages and physical and emotional anguish.
Although a personal injury attorney can help victim’s fight for justice, it can take time to obtain the best compensation. Unfortunately, many victims are not in a financial position to wait out the litigation process. If the plaintiff is unemployed or has poor credit, banks will usually not grant a loan. Even if approved for a bank loan, the plaintiff would be required to make monthly payments and pay back the loan no matter the outcome of the case. Insurance companies know all this and won’t hesitate to pressure victims into accepting the lowest possible settlement.
Before that happens, a better option would be lawsuit funding, a cash advance against the pending lawsuit. A legal funding company understands the financial situation facing plaintiffs and knows the lengths that insurance companies will go through to reach a less-than-fair settlement offer. Lawsuit funding allows victims to obtain immediate cash to meet their bills while their case progresses. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full value of your injuries.
Funding is based solely by the pending lawsuit. There are no upfront fees, no credit or employment checks and no monthly payments. Repayment of the cash advance is from the proceeds of the case, but if the plaintiff loses, the repayment is waived in its entirety. The application process is quick and easy, often times with funding decisions within 24 – 48 hours. There are no application fees, no credit check, no job requirement and no monthly payments. And, if the plaintiff loses the case, there is no obligation to repay the cash advance.
