Many people involved in a bus accident lawsuit will face financial hardships due to a long and drawn out legal process, the inability to work and mounting bills such as medical or funeral expenses. Litigation Funding Corporation specializes in providing lawsuit cash advances to help plaintiffs during such difficult times.
The families of two students and a teacher’s aide killed in a December 2014 bus accident have filed wrongful death lawsuits against Knox County Schools, the drivers of both buses involved and the bus contractors. According to the investigation, the driver of Bus 44 made a sharp turn, crossed a concrete median and slammed into Bus 57, causing that bus to flip over. The deceased were all aboard Bus 57. It was later revealed that the driver of Bus 57 was texting at the time of the crash. Investigators also discovered that the driver had a fanny pack on the bus containing three prescription medications, including the painkillers morphine and oxycodone although drug test results showed he had no drugs in his system. He died June 1 of apparent “natural” causes. The lawsuits claim:
•The driver of Bus 44 was to blame in the crash because he was texting while operating the bus, was speeding and “failed to exercise due care in the operation of a motor vehicle.”
•The school system “knowingly and intentionally allowed the driver of Bus 44 to continue to transport students despite prior complaints of misconduct and distracted driving.
•The driver of Bus 57 was negligent because he was speeding and was not licensed by the state Department of Transportation to transport students on school buses.

A lawsuit cash advance not only helps pay the mortgage/rent, funeral expenses, utilities, groceries, and any other important bill or expense while waiting for a settlement to be reached, but it gives plaintiffs a strategic advantage by providing leverage against the insurance company to avoid accepting inadequate settlement offers. With no money down, no credit checks, and no employment verifications, we can approve a case for funding in as little as 24 hours of receiving all necessary case documents. Additionally, there are absolutely no payments made until the case settles. If approved for funding, but unsuccessful in winning a cash award, we completely waived repayment of the cash advance. That’s right – our clients pay nothing if their case is lost.
