Three pedestrians were injured, one fatally when a vehicle jumped a curb and started driving on a sidewalk in downtown Tampa before hitting a light pole. The pole fell on one of the victims; the vehicle hit an elderly couple. The elderly man died from his injuries. Police believe the driver who caused the accident suffered a medical episode. He was not injured, but admitted to the hospital for the medical condition. The driver is cooperating with the investigation. He may not face charges, as long as there are no medical restrictions on his license.
While the investigation is underway, the injured victims and their families may choose to speak to an experienced auto accident attorney to protect their rights. Auto accident lawsuits can present some unique challenges, especially in a case such as this where a medical condition may be the cause. An experienced attorney can help determine if the victims have the right to seek compensation.
During a lengthy litigation process, the victims may find themselves burdened by the expenses associated with medical expenses, loss of income, or even death of a loved one. There is immediate financial assistance available to victims to cover medical expenses, household bills, lost income, and funeral expenses. It is called lawsuit funding.
A lawsuit cash advance is available by phone or online, and is contingent on the outcome of your case. There are no application fees or monthly payments; the only collateral needed is a pending lawsuit. Once an application and applicable documentation is received, funding decisions can be made within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment is made once the case settles, but if lost, the repayment is excused.
