Earlier this month, two sisters were hit in a crosswalk as they approached the entrance of a Wal-Mart. Witnesses said the driver of a Ford Explorer was driving excessively fast, talking on his cellphone and looking into the store while driving along the building’s entrance. One of the women was pinned underneath the SUV. Both women were taken to the hospital, where one died the next day from injuries sustained. The driver was taken into custody and charged with felony DUI causing death and DUI causing serious bodily injury. Our hearts go out to the family in this terrible DUI accident.
As the criminal case is underway, the family of these sisters should consider filing a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit against the driver. A lawsuit can provide the victim and family with essential compensation for replacing the income, and also help to pay for their emotional pain and suffering, as well as any medical and funeral expenses.
For plaintiffs faced with depletion of financial resources and possibly dealing with severe injuries, and/or loss of employment, a plaintiff might give up and settle the claim for too little. Another option would be to hold out for just compensation by securing a lawsuit cash advance, known as litigation funding.
Litigation financing is an excellent way to pay funeral expenses, medical expenses, regular monthly bills and other necessary expenses. It also helps to prevent damage to a plaintiff’s credit score. There are no monthly payments to make; we are not a bank. There are no credit checks; your credit history does not matter and you don’t need to prove employment. Best of all, litigation funding is repaid only upon a successful settlement. If the plaintiff does not receive a favorable cash settlement, he/she need not pay back the cash advanced.
In the right situation, for the right plaintiff, litigation funding is clearly a service that plaintiffs and personal injury attorneys should consider at a strategic time in the litigation.
