Every year, thousands of people receive that phone call we all dread—news that a loved one has been killed in an auto accident. The news is not only a sudden shock, but emotionally and physically debilitating. Even before the reality of it all wears off, many families will face unforeseen financial challenges as they are suddenly forced to deal with medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and additional financial hurdles due to lost income.
While no one can ever put a value on a life, it is important for the family to understand their legal rights to pursue a wrongful death claim. An experienced attorney can help guide victims through their legal options to recover the maximum possible compensation.
The driver of a Chevy Impala was turning left into a parking lot when he was struck by another vehicle speeding at an estimated 100 mph. The crash sent the Impala spinning at least 75 feet into a Toyota Highlander. The Impala was so mangled that it was hardly recognizable; the Mercedes that hit it was crushed to at least three feet shorter than normal, according to reports.
The driver of the Impala died at the scene; his wife and oldest daughter were taken to an area hospital where they later died. The driver of the Mercedes also died at the scene. A passenger in his vehicle was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The two people in the Highlander were treated at the scene and released with minor injuries.
While speed appears to be a factor in this fatal crash, and the negligent driver has a history of speeding violations, police have not determined whether drugs or alcohol were also involved. The crash remains under investigation.
The deceased couple leaves behind a 10-year-old son and 15-year-old daughter. Neither child was in the car when the crash occurred.
While the families of all who died in this preventable crash work through their personal grief, they may decide to file a wrongful death lawsuit. At the same time, they may also experience immediate financial loss. During a pending claim, it can be a great relief to attain financial assistance through a lawsuit cash advance.
Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance that can cover mounting medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and other out of pocket expenses during pending litigation. Unlike a traditional bank loan in which you must pay back the lender, in monthly payments, regardless of whether or not you win your case, lawsuit funding requires no monthly payments. The cash advance is only repaid once the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived.
The process begins with a one-page funding application and basic case documentation. Approval is based on case strength, not collateral, credit checks or employment verification. Once approved, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours.
