Five Teens Killed, Several Other People Injured in Multiple Crashes By Wrong-way Driver

Five Vermont teens are dead in a head-on collision and several other people injured after several crashes along Interstate 89 in Williston.

Police had received over a dozen calls about a pick-up truck traveling the wrong way down the highway. They were responding to the area when calls starting coming in reporting a head-on crash. Arriving at the scene, police found the vehicle with the five teens in flames. While officers tried to extinguish the fire, a man stole the police cruiser and sped away. As police tried to stop him, the man turned the cruiser around and began heading back toward the crash scene. The cruiser then struck seven vehicles, including the pick-up truck, which was still in the middle of the intersection. The man behind the wheel of the police cruiser was thrown from the vehicle, which also burst into flames. All five teens were pronounced dead at the scene. The negligent driver was taken into custody before transported to an area hospital in critical condition. Several others were injured, but none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

Quite probably, the families of the deceased teens will in time file wrongful death lawsuits against the negligent driver. Wrongful death lawsuits can take months to several years to reach a settlement. Meanwhile plaintiffs must still pay the bills and meet their financial obligations. When money is tight, one solution is to secure a lawsuit cash advance, known as lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is 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. Victims are eligible for funding once they have attorney representation.

The process begins with completing a one-page application upon which time the funding company will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for supporting case documentation. Funding is based solely on the strength of the lawsuit; there are no credit checks or employment verification. If the case is approved for funding, the money can arrive within 24 – 48 hours. There are no restrictions on the money’s use. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles; if the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, legal action can be taken. Although a wrong-way accident may seem easy to prove and often settle through negotiations, the process oftentimes requires an experienced attorney to obtain full and just compensations for damages.
