Motorcylclist Killed By Drunk; Drunk Slammed by Jury

In this wrongful death lawsuit, resulting from an automobile accident, a jury awarded $14.2 million to the family of a woman motorcyclist/passenger who was killed by a drunk driver.

The woman was a passenger on her husband’s motorcycle, when the drunk hit them. The drunk fled the scene in an attempt to avoid responsibility; the woman died a week later and her husband sustained severe crush injuries to his leg, ankle and foot.

The drunk went to prison for four years; the lawsuit was filed against him and the bar that served him; under dramshop laws, if a bar continues to serve a visibly intoxicated person, the bar can be held responsible for the damages suffered by the innocent victims of the drunk driver. In this case, surveillance videos showed how much the defendant had to drink that fateful evening, but the tavern intentionally altered the video. Shame on them. This is one reason why the jury punished them so severely.

This unfortunate widower was an excellent candidate for lawsuit funding; something that would have helped him to continue his own treatments, pay other expenses related to the accident and his wife’s death, and any and all regular bills and expenses that were difficult to pay, after the accident. Litigation funding allows victims like this to wait, with a lawsuit cash advance in hand, for a fair settlement or jury verdict. There is no need to sacrifice a valuable case for pennies on the dollars and take a low settlement offer from the insurance company. Strategic legal finance services provide you the money you need now to hold out for the settlement you deserve, later.

It is quick and easy to apply for what some call a “lawsuit loan“; complete a short application online or over the phone, wait for your attorney to provide some records, and, once approved, receive your lawsuit cash advance in 24-48 hours. It costs nothing to apply for lawsuit financing; there are no upfront fees, no monthly charges. If the victim loses his case, he keeps the money, free of charge. This is, truly, no risk legal funding.
