A Mercedes SUV rear-ended a Nissan Maxima on the Florida Turnpike in Lake County, causing a crash that killed three people, including an infant. Both vehicles flipped on their sides and caught fire. A male driver and female passenger in the Nissan died at the scene. The infant was ejected from the vehicle; she died at an area hospital. Damage to the Nissan was so extensive that police were unable to identify the victims, determine the age of the infant, or if a car seat was in the vehicle. Police have traced the vehicle identification number (VIN) to an owner in Georgia, but it is unclear if the owner was in the vehicle at the time of the crash. The 24-year-old driver of the SUV escaped with minor injuries.
At this time, it is unclear if the driver of the Mercedes was speeding, texting, driving under the influence, or negligent in another way. What police do know is that the man was driving on a suspended license. Also, a few months earlier was charged with possession of methamphetamine and resisting an officer without violence. In the past two years, he faced multiple charges for speeding and a charge for texting while driving.
When negligence is proven to be a factor in a deadly auto crash, an experienced auto accident attorney can help the family understand their rights and pursue a wrongful death claim. In addition to receiving compensation for funeral and burial expenses and other accident-related expenses, the family may also pursue compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of companionship.
Unfortunately, most legal matters are not quickly resolved; it is not any different when it comes to auto accident cases. This is where lawsuit funding may be helpful.
Lawsuit funding allows plaintiffs easy access to the funds they will received once a settlement is reached. Although the money can be used any way the client wishes, most often it is to pay funeral and burial expenses and other outstanding bills, as well as daily household expenses.
Our auto accident lawsuit funding program requires no credit checks or employment verification, as the entire cash advance is based on the strength of the case. Additionally, funding is on a non-recourse basis meaning that the plaintiff will only have to pay back the cash advance if compensation from the claim is received. That’s correct! We are paid back from the proceeds of the case, but if the case is lost the repayment to us is completely waived.
If you find yourself in a pending lawsuit and facing financial difficulties, consider lawsuit funding to help pay outstanding bills so you can focus on what is really important – winning your case.
