A 64-year-old New York man was killed after he was hit by a motorists at an Interstate 84 off-ramp.
According to state police, the man was driving a 2014 Ford Fusion when he pulled over to the right shoulder on a sweeping curve and got out of the vehicle. An approaching 2007 Subaru Impreza struck the Ford and then the man. The pedestrian sustained serious injuries; he was pronounced dead at the scene. The 18-year-old driver that hit the pedestrian was not injured, and no charges have been filed. Both cars were towed from the scene.
The accident remains under investigation.
Depending upon the investigation, if the driver of the Subaru is determined to be negligent in causing the accident, wrongful death litigation is likely.
A wrongful death attorney can ensure that the rights of the victim’s family are protected and decide the best course of action in recovering the maximum compensation for funeral and burial expenses, anticipated and future lifetime earnings, loss of love, care and companionship, and other damages related to this pedestrian accident.
While the family may eventually receive a financial settlement to compensate them for their loss, they may experience a shortfall in their finances during the litigation process. The last thing they should do is agree to an early settlement for less than full case value.
Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance to help ease the financial burden until a settlement or verdict is achieved. 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 for funding. If approved, we can wire transfer or overnight mail the cash advance within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment is made once the case successfully settles; if the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived.
If you are seriously injured or lose a loved one in a pedestrian-auto accident that was not your fault (or, was only partially your fault), you may be able to recover damages for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
