Two men were killed in a wrong-way crash on Route 53 just south of Euclid Avenue in northwest suburban Rolling Meadows, according to Illinois State Police.
The driver of a Toyota Scion was heading south on in the northbound lanes when he struck a Chevrolet Impala. Continuing in the wrong direction, he then collided with a Toyota Sienna – an American Taxi minivan. The taxi driver, who was not on duty at the time, and the wrong-way driver were killed. The condition of others involved in the accident is still unknown. Investigators have not said whether alcohol was a factor in the crash, but a witness said he saw the driver of the Scion traveling at what appeared to be nearly 100 mph just before the crash. The investigation is ongoing.
When someone is injured or killed due to the negligence of someone else, legal action by the injured, or family of a deceased loved one, can be taken. This process oftentimes requires an experienced attorney to obtain full and just compensations for damages.
Once the lawsuit is filed, plaintiffs that are in need of immediate cash can apply for litigation funding. Litigation funding is a cash received in advance of a settlement that, hopefully, permits victims to deal with their crucial expenses right away, enabling them to wait out the long, legal process and achieve appropriate justice. The funding process begins with completing a one-page application. Next, Lawsuit Financial will request case documentation to determine the strength of the case; there are no application fees, credit checks or employment verification. If the case is approved for a lawsuit cash advance, the money can arrive within 24 – 48 hours. Repayment is only made once the case is won and the settlement received. If the case is lost, the plaintiff is under no obligation to repay the cash advance.
For any victim of an auto accident who have retained an attorney, filed a lawsuit, and in need of financial assistance, we encourage you to consider litigation funding before settling for less than full case value or struggling to the point of losing your home and credit standing.
