A deadly Houston chain-reaction pile-up snowballed out of control early Sunday morning leaving one person dead. According to the Houston Police Department, the multi-vehicle accident began when a hit-and-run driver clipped a Chevy Impala, spinning it around before hitting a Toyota. When the driver of the Toyota got out of his vehicle, he was hit by the driver of a Honda who officials believe was intoxicated at the time. Then, when a passenger in the Honda got out of the car to seek help, he was hit by another vehicle. The driver of the Toyota died at the scene; the passenger in the Honda was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries.
Police are still investigating the accident and searching for the hit-and-run driver who began the series of accidents. During this time, the victims and their families should consult an experienced auto accident attorney to understand their rights, as well as how to recover compensation for their loss.
Hit and run accidents that cause serious injuries or death are usually prosecuted as felonies. If the hit-and-run driver is not found or does not have insurance, hopefully the victims have uninsured /underinsured coverage under their own policy. The driver of the Honda may also be held accountable. In either case, if a lawsuit is filed, it will likely be a long case in the winning and the plaintiffs may struggle financially during this time.
Hit and run lawsuit funding has become an excellent resource for cash strapped plaintiffs (who qualify) with no other way to pay their bills.

All that is needed to qualify is a serious injury, viable lawsuit, and be represented by an attorney.

Best of all, we only get paid back when the case is resolved. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis so if the plaintiff loses, the repayment is completely waived.
