This two vehicle crash involved an ambulance on the way to a call and an SUV that may have not obeyed a yield sign and most certainly did not observe the ambulance siren or lights. The ambulance was attempting to make a left turn from an avenue on to a street when the SUV sped through the intersection and hit the passenger’s side of the rig. The impact was so violent that the ambulance rolled onto the driver’s side and remained out of control until it came to rest about 50 feet later.
EMS crews took most of the injured paramedics to hospital where the driver was treated and released, but one paramedic was so seriously injured that had to have his leg amputated. The driver of the SUV died at the scene. It appears speed was the major factor in this accident, but a full investigation is underway.
No doubt the ambulance driver and the second paramedic will want to speak to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. While they are finding out what their rights are and what a personal injury lawsuit may involve, they might also want to do some research into litigation funding services. Legal finance would be advanced to them based on what the settlements may be in these cases.
To apply for a lawsuit cash advance, the parties would just need to either call a lawsuit funding company or apply online. If the two paramedics are eligible, they would receive their “lawsuit loan” within 24-48 hours. There are no fees involved and no monthly payments. Pre-settlement funding may be just the thing they need to pay important bills and expenses while they wait for their cases to be settled.
