Texting School Bus Driver Causes Fatal Accident

While never anticipated, a bus accident cannot only cause serious physical and emotional suffering, financial hardship as well. Like most personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits, a bus accident injury claim can take months, even years before a settlement is reached. For some people that live paycheck to paycheck and can’t afford to wait for case resolution, lawsuit funding becomes a viable option.

Six months after a fatal school bus accident in Tennessee, police have concluded that the bus driver was texting while driving. In fact, it was determined that he sent and received multiple text messages leading up to the time of the December 2014 accident. Additionally, the investigation revealed some alarming issues regarding the lack of oversight and supervision of the private school bus contractor. According to the investigation, the driver made a sharp turn, crossed a concrete median and slammed into another bus, causing that bus to flip over. Two students and a teacher’s aide died at the scene, several others were injured; the negligent bus driver sustained serious injuries. As the police were nearing the conclusion of the investigation, the bus driver died. While it appears his death was of natural causes, an autopsy has been ordered. Although his death means there will be no criminal charges stemming from this accident, three separate wrongful death lawsuits have been filed against the bus driver and the owner of the bus.

Due to the complexity of the lawsuits, these families may be experiencing financial duress to the point where help is needed. Lawsuit funding is available to pay the mortgage/rent, funeral expenses, utilities, groceries, and any other important bill or expense while waiting for a settlement to be reached. A lawsuit cash advance gives plaintiffs a strategic advantage by providing leverage against the insurance company so the plaintiffs avoid accepting inadequate settlement offers. The application process is quick and easy because funding is based completely on the strength and merit of the lawsuit. We do not charge application or upfront fees, nor do we need a credit check or employment verification. Additionally, there are absolutely no payments made until the case settles. Most importantly, funding is on a non-recourse basis meaning if you do not win or settle your case you don’t repay the lawsuit cash advance.

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a bus accident, it is important to contact an attorney to help recover compensation for your loss.
