A 21-year-old Bryan, Texas man was killed and three others were injured in a rollover accident.
According to police, four people were in a pick-up when the driver lost control and the truck flipped and rolled. One passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. A male and female passenger were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The 18-year-old driver suffered serious injuries, but is expected to recover. The accident remains under investigation, but speed appears to be a factor.
Careless or reckless drivers cause accidents every day, resulting in serious or fatal injuries. The at-fault driver can be held responsible for damages including medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and more. Unfortunately, plaintiffs may not be compensated for years, yet they simply do not have the financial resources to wait out the long litigation process. As the bills pile up, financial hardship mounts. While the case is in progress, lawsuit funding can be used to lessen that financial burden. Without the pressure to settle, the plaintiff’s attorney has time to obtain the largest possible settlement.
Lawsuit funding is a cash advance to help plaintiffs see their case to completion and realize a fair recovery. This cash advance is not a traditional loan, so considerations like credit standing or employment history are not a factor. The only concern when approving a case for funding is attorney representation and whether it is a strong case.
Lawsuit funding differs from traditional loans in other ways as well. Most importantly, where a traditional bank loan requires monthly payments, with lawsuit funding there are no payments until a settlement is reached. And if the lawsuit is lost, the lawsuit cash advance does not need to be repaid.
After applying for funding, Lawsuit Financial will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for applicable documentation. Our underwriters will review all materials and determine case merit and applicable funding. If the plaintiff decides to proceed, we will prepare a contract for signatures, then send the cash advance via direct deposit or overnight mail. All this can happen within 24 – 48 hours. It is that simple!
