Elderly Tennessee Man May Face Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Auto Accident

In auto accidents where negligence or wrongdoing is involved, the at-fault driver can be held liable for the injuries, damages and losses. Innocent victims can seek compensation for their losses. Families of deceased victims can file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for damages such as funeral and burial expenses, loss of future income, pain and suffering, and loss of love and companionship. Injured victims can seek damages for medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, and pain and suffering. During the legal process, if the victims need financial assistance to pay the bills, they should contact a litigation funding company.

A 62-year-old man and a 6-year-old little boy, both passengers in a 2000 Honda Accord, were killed in a devastating Knoxville, TN auto accident. According to a news report, the female driver of the Honda was making a turn from US25/70 onto a private drive when she was rear-ended by Ford Explorer. The impact sent the woman’s vehicle into a large tree killing both passengers. The woman and the 83-year-old driver of the Explorer were treated at an area hospital. All the occupants of the Honda were using seat belts and the child was properly restrained in a child seat. Was the man speeding, distracted, or impaired in some way? An investigation is ongoing to determine precisely what happened.

In this case, the elderly man may have been speeding or distracted. This combined with a slower reaction time typical of elderly drivers may have led to the fatalities. The victims and their families would be well-advised to contact an experienced auto accident attorney to learn their rights and ensure that the negligent parties are held liable. Unfortunately, the legal process can take upwards of several months to years before compensation is received. During this time, the families may want to consider litigation funding, a non-recourse cash advance against their pending claim.

Litigation funding is a means to refrain from being forced to settle for a fraction of what you deserve, a tactic typical of insurance companies. Insurers will delay the case as long as they can and lowball a settlement offer so families in financial distress will feel pressure to settle for less than full compensation. Obtaining auto accident litigation funding can neutralize this tactic and provide plaintiffs the ability to make pay the bills and hold out for the highest possible settlement.
