In the 2018 NCAA Tournament on Saturday, it seemed the Houston Cougars had victory over Michigan in the bag. How could 4 seconds change everything?
Houston’s Devin Davis was at the line with four seconds on the clock; his team was up by two points. A make would’ve meant Michigan could do no better than force overtime; two makes would’ve iced the game and pushed Houston into the Sweet 16. Davis missed both shots. Then it happened. Michigan grabbed the rebound on the second miss. In a desperate situation, freshman Jordan Poole sunk a 3-pointer from about 28 feet as the final buzzer sounded, giving Michigan a dramatic 64-63 win.
Life can also change in seconds. It is likely that few people stop to consider that simply getting in the family car can be a life-altering decision. Sadly, for too many, serious auto accidents can change their lives forever. Victims may be unable to work and earn a living. A family might have lost the sole breadwinner. While some people just need time to recover, others need surgery or may be permanently disabled.
With many people living paycheck-to-paycheck, an auto accident can be financially devastating. Most people won’t have the financial resources to make ends meet while their claim is dragging out. They assume their insurance policy will be paid out in a timely manner so they can cover the mounting bills. But as most people who have ever filed a claim can tell you, insurance companies will deny, delay, and defend the claim.
When families are fighting to stay afloat, a lifeline such as litigation funding can help replace income now, after an accident, and bridge the gap until the case settles. With litigation funding, the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. There is no need for a credit check, employment verification, upfront fees, or monthly payments. Furthermore, litigation funding is risk-free; repayment of the cash advance is only paid if, and when, the case is won.
While sports fans can’t change the outcome of a game, victims should have choices when deciding how to move forward after an auto accident. Contact Lawsuit Financial to see if we can help you in your time of need.
