Hit-and-run crashes are usually prefaced by an act of negligence, such as speeding, texting, talking on the phone, or driving under the influence.
A 5-year-old girl was in front of her family’s home when she was hit by a vehicle. The driver fled the scene and has yet to be identified. The little girl remains in the hospital with a broken femur, skull fracture, and bleeding on her brain.
A serious accident like this usually results in hefty financial costs, as well as emotional and psychological trauma.
The family can file a lawsuit against the negligent driver, but if he/she is never found, the only option is to file an uninsured motorist case. However, many insurance companies deny, delay, and defend hit-and-run claims, making it difficult to receive a settlement.
An experienced auto accident attorney can help guide plaintiffs through an often lengthy litigation process and receive compensation for their loss. However, when a settlement is months, if not years away, many plaintiffs will face financial devastation. One solution to get through such a difficult time is lawsuit funding.
Lawsuit funding is a cash advance offered to plaintiffs in exchange for a portion of the future proceeds of their case. Eligibility is based on a strong case and attorney representation. Once these qualifications are met, the application process is quick and easy; it takes less than five minutes online or over the phone.
Unlike a traditional bank loan; funding can be obtained without the need for a credit check or employment verification; the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. Furthermore, there are no restrictions on how the money is used and it is only repaid once the claim is settled. Because repayment is contingent upon a successful recovery, if the lawsuit is lost, there is no obligation on the part of the plaintiff to repay the cash advance.
