Litigation Funding Helps Families Seek Justice in Auto-Pedestrian Fatalities

When a pedestrian is struck by several thousand pounds of metal and glass, even a low-speed collision carries a high potential for serious or catastrophic injury, or even death.

On June 25, two teens were struck and killed by the driver of a Jeep Wrangler, while riding skateboards around 10 p.m. along South Carolina highway. The driver fled the scene, then filed a false police report claiming the vehicle was stolen. Deputies later learned from witnesses that the man was driving in a reckless manner shortly before the incident and that he struck the teens after attempting to pass another vehicle. The drive has been arrested without bond; the investigation is ongoing.

The legal process provides resources to hold negligent drivers accountable and help victims obtain compensation for damages such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life and pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can ensure that the family’s rights are protected and decide the best course of action in recovering the maximum.

Unfortunately, the legal process can drag on for years. Although the family may eventually receive a financial settlement, they may experience a financial shortfall during the litigation process that could lead to significant financial hardship. In situations like this, litigation funding can help ease the financial burden until a settlement or verdict is achieved.

Litigation funding is a non-recourse cash advance to remove the financial and allow the plaintiff to continue with the litigation and receive the compensation and justice deserved. 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. If approved for funding, we can wire transfer or overnight mail the cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, repayment is only made when a settlement is reached. If the case is lost, repayment is completely excused.
