Distracted Driver Took The Life Of A Motorcyclist On Labor Day

Everyone will agree that multi-tasking has become a way of life; behind the wheel is no exception. Distracted driving has become so common that not a day goes by where we don’t see hundreds of motorists doing everything but what they should – drive. The result is a staggering number of serious and fatal auto accidents. Even the most experienced drivers can cause a crash if they take their eyes off the road, if only for a few seconds.

A motorcyclist was killed on Labor Day after he was struck by a pick-up truck near St. Clair Missouri.

The man was heading west on Highway 30 when the driver of a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado crossed the center line and struck the motorcycle, ejecting the man. A truck then hit the motorcycle from behind. Debris from the crash struck the windshield of another vehicle. The motorcyclist was transported by air ambulance to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. No other injuries were reported. Police said the driver of the Silverado was distracted at the time of the crash.

Holding a distracted driver accountable for a crash involves collecting evidence such as photos of the crash site, cell phone records and witness statements. It is important to consult an experienced auto accident attorney who understands the necessary steps and thus recover compensation for damages.

After a lawsuit has been filed, the plaintiff may wish to inquire about litigation funding, a lawsuit cash advance while waiting for an equitable verdict or a fair settlement.

Litigation funding is a viable choice for cash-strapped plaintiffs who have no means of paying medical and/or funeral expenses and other expenses resulting from the accident, let alone cover daily household needs. Applicants do not need to have good credit or be employed because funding is based solely on the strength of the case.

Once a funding application is received, we will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation in order to determine the merits of the case and the cash advance we can provide. Typically, funding decisions are made in 24 – 48 hours, and the money is sent via direct deposit or overnight mail.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident caused by a distracted driver, your personal funds are running out, and your case has not settled, you may want to consider litigation funding. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning you owe us nothing until your attorney recovers a settlement on your behalf. If you lose your case, you owe us nothing.

Litigation funding is also available for other cases, such as medical malpractice, slip and falls, premise liability and defective and dangerous products, to name a few.
