Eight people died, and 25 others were seriously injured, including three young children, in a crash involving a Greyhound bus and a semi-truck in New Mexico. Some of the deceased had to be identified through fingerprints and other means.
The bus was hit head-on after the semi lost the tread on its left front tire, jack-knifed, and crossed the median. The cab of the truck flipped over; the trailer landed on its side. Debris from the semi and mangled bus was scattered across the highway. Investigators will be looking at maintenance and inspection records, as well as other factors such as driver fatigue and the condition of the roadway.
Two lawsuits have already been filed against the trucking company and the semi driver. Both complaints allege negligence and cite data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration that shows the company reported three crashes in the last two years.
Settling these lawsuits will inevitably be a long process. If the plaintiffs are seeking help with their finances during this time, Lawsuit Financial can help.
With litigation funding, plaintiffs don’t have to wait for their case to settle in order to be paid. A lawsuit cash advance provides a portion of the settlement now so the victims can wait to regain financial freedom while recovering from their loss. There are no restrictions on how the cash advance is used and repayment is only made once the case successfully settles. If the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment obligation is completely waived.
The process to obtain funding begins with a simple one-page application and basic documentation to determine case strength. Lawsuit Financial does not require a credit check, employment verification, or collateral of any kind. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments; repayment is made from the proceeds of the settlement so there is never out of pocket expenses.
