A 2008 accident between a SUV and a utility truck left the driver of the SUV paralyzed for life. Each driver alleged that the other rain a red light; each claimed the other caused serious injuries. The two cases were consolidated, then tried together. The jury found the utility truck driver 95% negligent and the sport utility driver 5% negligent. The award was $25 million, reduced to $23.8 for the 5% comparative negligence.
Despite a favorable settlement, it was a long legal battle, especially for the paralyzed victim who could no longer work. Ever wonder how a person who cannot earn a living litigate a case for so many years, without assistance in paying ordinary bills and expenses? Social Security Disability benefits may have helped in this case, but these benefits most likely fell far short of paying this man the wages that he was making before the accident. He could/may have sought litigation funding.
Auto accident litigation funding is not just a good option; it is often times the only option. Expenses that an injured victim can suddenly cannot afford can be normal, everyday costs, but these are compounded by the following additional bills and expenses:
• Hospital and medical bills
• Physical therapy
• Lost income or wages
Litigation funding has the priceless quality of assisting victims in turning down unreasonable and insulting offers from insurance companies which are trying to take advantage of the plaintiffs’ financial distress.
