The three vehicles involved in this serious injury automobile accident were a Chicago Fire Department sport utility vehicle, an AT&T truck, and a pedestrian. It appears the AT&T truck slammed into the Fire Department SUV, sending the SUV over the curb where it hit an elderly woman on the sidewalk. EMS crews took all three seriously injured people to various hospitals for treatment. The 71-year-old pedestrian was listed in critical condition. A full investigation will be launched to find out the cause of this accident.
It appears that the driver of the AT&T truck may have been speeding, but only a full investigation will determine this. There are many unanswered questions, not the least of which is whether or not the AT&T driver was on a cell phone, texting while driving, driving while distracted or under the influence of some substance. It has yet to be determined whether the Fire Department SUV ran a red light, was rightfully in the intersection at the time or if it was speeding.
In any event, there are potential lawsuits here. For the victims that choose to file suit, their cases may be a long way from producing a fair and equitable financial resolution. If their cases take a long time to wind their way through the complex and lengthy legal process, they may wish to apply for litigation funding.
A lawsuit cash advance would let the accident victim(s) wait for a fair settlement or award, and not have to jump at the first offer that comes along. Insurance companies are notorious for low balling settlement offers, so having legal finance to help financially is a smart move. Applying for pre-settlement funding is easy and can be done online or by phone. If the applicant qualifies for funding, the fast cash usually arrives within 24-48 hours, sometimes, even less.
