Drowsy driving is a serious problem on our roadways. Unfortunately, drivers often underestimate this risk and overestimate their ability to combat drowsiness behind the wheel. When this happens, serious and fatal accidents can occur. If a family is faced with the death of a loved one, they may be able to seek compensation for the damages including funeral costs, expected income, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship to the deceased’s family. After filing a wrongful death lawsuit, the family may be able to apply for, and receive, litigation funding.
A devastating head-on accident resulted in three fatalities after a vehicle being driven by a 31-year-old man struck a semi-truck head-on. According to police, it appears the driver of the vehicle ran off the road, but then over-corrected trying to get back and slammed into the truck. The driver and two passengers were killed instantly. Although the investigation is ongoing, it appears that driver fatigue was a factor.
Victims who were injured or lost a loved one due to a drowsy or fatigued driver, should consult an experienced personal injury attorney who can review the case and determine if the victim is entitled to pain and suffering damages, loss of income damages, medical or funeral costs, and even punitive damages. An automobile accident can be very complex and in some situations it can take years before a settlement is reached. For many plaintiffs litigation funding may help supplement loss of income, pay medical and/or funeral expenses, pay down debt, and cover everyday living expenses in order to wait for fair compensation. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full value of your injuries.
The application process is quick and easy because the only requirement is a pending lawsuit with merit and a serious financial need. There is no cost to apply, no upfront fees, no monthly payments, no credit checks and no hassles. Once a plaintiff is approved for funding, the money arrives fast, typically within 24-48 hours. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, so if the plaintiff loses the case, there is no obligation to pay us back. The process is really that simple.
