Kalamazoo County Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey Getting said that three separate police agencies started receiving phone calls regarding a truck’s erratic driving about 30 minutes prior to a crash that killed five bicyclists and seriously injured four others. Officers were attempting to locate the driver of a blue Chevy pick-up truck when the crash occurred. The pick-up truck sustained heavy front-end damage and was disabled after the crash. The driver fled on foot, but found a short time later and taken into police custody. The five deceased bicyclists were pronounced dead at the scene; the injured victims were transported to area hospitals. All victims were adults. The crash remains under investigation.
Drivers who flee the scene of a fatal accident face felony charges. In addition to criminal consequences, families of the deceased victims may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Additionally, those injured can pursue a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. While the grief these families are facing is overwhelming at best, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to determine their rights to recover compensation for medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering endured as a result of this crash.
Once the litigation process is underway, if these families need financial assistance to keep their case alive, lawsuit funding may be a viable solution. Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance to help plaintiffs pay for expenses resulting from injuries sustained or simply to catch up on daily living expenses. This is funding received prior to case settlement without the need for a credit check or employment verification. Additionally, repayment is only made once the case successfully settles. If the plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is completely waived. It’s that simple!
