Caltrans May Face Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Man Killed By Flying Metal Nut

An 82-year-old man was struck in the neck and killed by a large metal nut that smashed through the windshield as he drove on Highway 101 in Menlo Park, California. The impact caused him to swerve and collide with the center median. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) said the baseball size nut may have fallen off one if its water trucks, then was kicked up by passing traffic. Caltrans is cooperating with the CHP as they finish their investigation.

By filing a wrongful death suit, the family of the deceased can take some action against those responsible for the loss of your loved one. Cases such as this will require an experience auto accident attorney, one that has successfully pursued claims against negligent government entities.

Suffering the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; the last thing the families need is to face significant financial hardship, too. Lawsuit Financial understands how hard it is to stay financial afloat during a lengthy litigation process. Litigation funding may be an option.
Litigation funding is financial assistance that can help innocent victims pay funeral and burial expenses, monthly bills, or daily living expenses, while allowing their attorney the time needed to seek appropriate justice. Funding is provided on-recourse cash advance, meaning that it is paid back only out of the settlement of the case. If you don’t win the case, the cash advance does not have to be repaid.

Suffering injuries are the loss of a loved one is enough of a hardship; don’t succumb to a financial hardship. If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident, have a pending claim and are represented by an attorney on a contingency basis, you may be eligible for litigation funding.

The application process is free and easy and there is no cost to review your case and determine your funding needs. Funding is based on the merits of the case, not on credit-worthiness or employment history verification. If you qualify, cash can often be available in as little as 24 hours.
