One wonders what happened to people taking responsibility for their actions. A trucker fled the scene of this fatal accident, attempting to avoid being caught.
This fatal accident took place on the Burlington-Bristol Bridge when a metal bar came off a dump truck loaded with stone and heading for New Jersey. According to police reports, the dump truck suddenly crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a vehicle. The bar pierced the windshield of the vehicle hit by the truck, causing the driver’s death. Rather than wait at the scene of the accident, the trucker took off.
“It so happens that the bridge authorities keep surveillance tapes and caught not only the accident on tape, but the trucker fleeing the scene and ultimately pulling into a parking lot after crossing the bridge and then using back roads to get to his destination,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.
Thanks to the tape, the police were able to find the owner of the truck, Aldeep Enterprises. The trucker who was driving at the time of the fatal accident eventually surrendered to the police and found himself facing charges of obstructing government function and several motor vehicle counts.
“He was taken to jail and held on $75,000 bail. A quick check of his driving record showed a series of minor moving violations and at least 11 suspensions for administrative reasons,” Monroe said.
“There’s not much question about who was liable for this accident, and it’s likely the family of the person killed in the accident will want to speak to a wrongful death lawyer about filing a lawsuit. They will need to know their rights and how to deal with the crushing loss of their loved one,” Monroe said.
The family might find themselves in financial difficulties due to the death of their loved one and not know how they are going to be able to pay their bills. The solution to this dilemma is to apply for litigation funding to help tide them over until their case is settled or goes to court and a verdict is handed down.
Pre-settlement funding is applied for by filling out an application online at the litigation finance company website. It is easy to fill out and only takes a few minutes. Once the case has been assessed, the lawsuit cash advance is sent out within 24 to 48 hours by check or wire.
“Applicants for lawsuit funding do not have a whole bunch of hoops to go through to get their legal financing in place and they don’t have to pay any upfront fees either. In fact, there is no cost to apply for pre-settlement funding and the plaintiff will not be shelling out any monthly payments to pay the lawsuit loan back,” Monroe said. If the case is lost in court, the plaintiff keeps the lawsuit loan; free and clear.
When a family is cash strapped due to the sudden loss of a loved one, litigation funding is an emergency loan to tide them over until they get justice. It allows them to pay every last bill they may owe and keep current on the rest of them. It also has the added advantage of allowing the victims to decline any offers that aren’t reasonable made by an insurance company. Litigation funding is well worth checking out.
