When you are injured as a pedestrian, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the driver, vehicle owner, or employer responsible for your injuries if the driver was negligent.
A man was struck by an Access-A-Ride vehicle while in a Manhattan crosswalk. Access-A- Ride is a Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) program that provides transportation to disabled individuals who are unable to use public subways or buses.
As a result of the accident, the pedestrian suffered a traumatic brain injury and an exacerbation of psychological issues. The victim and his family filed a personal injury lawsuit against the owner of the vehicle and the company operating the vehicle.
The defendants fought the case for six years, settling for $5 million prior to opening statements in court.
No one deserves to suffer a lifelong consequences due to another person’s negligence, nor do they need to suffer financially during a long litigation process because the defendant denies, delays, and defends the claim.
If you or someone you love has sustained injuries in an auto accident caused by a negligent or otherwise irresponsible driver, you have rights to pursue compensation for your damages. Never assume you do not have a case. A personal injury attorney knows the law and can help you understand your legal rights.
Most likely, you will need to prepare for deny, delay, and defend tactics by the defendant, just like this victim. What if, like him, you also suffer lifelong injuries, are unable to return to work, and have very little if any means to pay the bills? That will definitely put a financial strain and emotional stress on you and your family.
Litigation funding is an excellent way to pay medical expenses, regular monthly bills and other necessary financial obligations. It also helps prevent damage to your credit score.
When applying for a lawsuit cash advance, you only need to provide case details because funding is based on the strength of the case. There are no credit checks; credit history does not matter and there is no need to prove employment. Once approved, funding can be available within 24-48 hours.
There are no monthly payments to make and the money can be used at your discretion. Best of all, litigation funding is repaid only upon a successful settlement. If you do not receive a favorable cash settlement, you are under no obligation to pay back the cash advanced.
