Many auto accidents are the result of a driver being intoxicated; it is a common occurrence nationwide. Victims of a DUI crash may have legal recourse to recover damages through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the person(s) at fault.
A Spring, Texas couple and their 17-year-old son were returning home from a church function when the speeding driver of a Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up truck ran a red light and plowed into their Honda sedan. All three family members were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. After the crash, the driver of the pick-up attempted to flee the scene according to witnesses. It was reported that when deputies arrived, they “could smell a strong odor or alcohol about his person.” Other field tests were administered and the suspect reportedly failed them as well. At the time of the accident, there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest for a prior drunk driving charge. He was also driving on a suspended license.
Although it may be difficult for surviving family members to think about taking legal action following the loss of loved ones, a wrongful death lawsuit is the only way to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions and for the family to seek compensation for damages. In addition to compensation for funeral costs, medical bills, and other expenses resulting from the death, the family can also seek damages for the loss of present and future earnings as well as intangible elements of life, such as loss of companionship, which cannot be assigned cash value. The claim may also be filed against bars, restaurants, night clubs and other establishments that serve alcohol to the intoxicated persons.
Such cases can take months, even years to settle. While some people can financially withstand a lengthy legal process, often times, the financial burden is too much for most. Lawsuit funding can provide immediate financial relief and peace of mind.
Lawsuit funding is cash provided in advance of an expected settlement; its main purpose is to assist plaintiffs who are struggling to make ends meet due to injury or death caused by auto accidents. There are just a few benefits of lawsuit funding:
• It is not a loan. If you don’t win your case, you don’t repay the cash advance.
• Unlike a traditional loan, you make no monthly payments.
• Your personal credit has no bearing on our funding decision, and you don’t need to be employed. We fund strictly on case strength.
• You do not need to be employed.
