Drunk Driving Suspected In Fatal Highway Crash

A young mother of three died in a fatal auto accident at the hands of a suspected drunk driver. According to police, a 24-year-old was driving a 2003 Ford pickup truck in the eastbound lane when he went into oncoming traffic hitting a 2001 Chevy Lumina head-on. The force of the impact caused the Lumina to spin, hitting a 2002 Ford Escort, driven by 65-year-old woman. The deceased woman was a passenger in the Lumina. She died at the scene. The driver of the vehicle she was riding in was taken to the hospital in critical condition while the driver of the Escort suffered a broken ankle. The driver of the pick-up was also treated for non-life threatening injuries. The state patrol said alcohol was detected on the breath of the pick-up truck driver and witnesses told officers he was driving aggressively, attempting to pass in a no passing zone. After being released from the hospital, he will be taken into custody on suspicion of criminal vehicular homicide.

Injuries caused by drunk driving are frequently the subject of civil suits. While drunk drivers can face serious criminal charges, they can also face civil liability if they are sued by their victims. When someone is injured, or has lost a loved one, due to a drunk driver, it is important to consult an experienced auto accident attorney. A civil suit may be the best course of action to hold the negligent party accountable and for the family to seek compensation for damages. But, a lawsuit such as this will most likely take months, if not years, to settle. The deceased woman’s family is already struggling to find the financial resources to travel from the Philippines to make funeral arrangements and determine care for her children. If they proceed with a lawsuit, they may want to consider litigation funding.

The team at Lawsuit Financial knows how difficult this can be, how frustrating it is to negotiate with an insurance company that will attempt to convince you to settle for less than case value, and the temptation of that low settlement when you are strapped for cash. Litigation funding is emergency cash provided in advance of an expected settlement. By securing a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs can not only pay the bills, but can ultimately help their attorney fight for fair compensation without having to settle your case prematurely. With litigation funding, the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. There is no need for a credit check, employment verification, or monthly payments. The application takes less than five minutes; approvals are often within 24 – 48 hours. Litigation funding is risk-free; repayment is contingent of the outcome of the case meaning if you lose, repayment is excused.

If you believe a lawsuit cash advance could help you survive during the pursuit of your legal claim, you owe it to yourself to contact Lawsuit Financial for a free, no-obligation case evaluation. We are one of the country’s most experienced providers of legal funding services.

Our sympathies go out to the victims and family members of this suspected drunk driving accident. We hope for the day when news stories like this are rare instead of all too commonplace.
