Alcohol and Speed Factors in Fatal New York Crash

A driver lost control of his vehicle, jumped the curb and slammed into a fire hydrant, killing his passenger and seriously injuring himself. The impact was so powerful that the vehicle was nearly torn in half and the fire hydrant wound up in the middle of the car. Both men were trapped inside and had to be removed by rescuers. They were rushed to the hospital, but doctors were unable to save the passenger. He leaves behind a four-year-old daughter. The driver was arrested on charges of vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated. Police said speed was also a factor.

Catastrophic accidents are life changing. Family members will be faced with a number of decisions including the family’s financial future. Although it may be difficult for family members to think about taking legal action following the loss of loved ones, a wrongful death lawsuit may be the only way to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions and for the family to seek compensation for damages.

These types of cases can take months, even years to settle. Often times, victims will struggle not only with day-to-day living expenses, but with medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and other expenses as a result of the accident. As the case drags on, plaintiffs may consider cutting their losses and take whatever compensation is offered. A better option is to call Lawsuit Financial.

“Our goal at Lawsuit Financial is to help those families who are involved in a lawsuit, can no longer pay for the necessities of life, and who may not qualify for a traditional loan,” states attorney Mark Bello, owner and founder of Lawsuit Financial.

Lawsuit funding is cash provided in advance of an expected settlement. Unlike a bank loan, personal credit has no bearing on our funding decision, and applicants don’t need to be employed. We fund strictly on case strength. Lawsuit funding is also risk-free. If the case is resolved successfully, repayment of principal and profit owed is made. If the plaintiff loses the case, we excuse the advance.

Lawsuit Financial is one of the country’s most experienced providers of lawsuit funding services. We work directly with your attorney to gather needed information to process your funding request quickly, typically within 48 hours.
