Running out of gas can put motorist and their passengers in jeopardy should the vehicle suddenly become immobilized on the roadway; drivers can end up stranded in the middle of a busy highway without the ability to move their vehicle. Being stranded in the middles of the road can result in a serious or fatal multi-car crash.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol reported that a 26-year-old man was killed after his vehicle slammed into a tractor-trailer. According to reports, the semi ran out of fuel and was stalled in the center lane of I-77 in Hunterville. The 26-year-old was traveling at 65 miles per hour when he hit the tractor-trailer. Police believe he didn’t brake and was killed on impact. An investigation is underway, but troopers suspect the man was distracted in some way; there were no skid marks prior to the point of impact.
Although it appears the young driver was distracted, running out of gas is completely avoidable and the truck driver could be held at least partially accountable for the crash. When faced with a complex accident and liability issues, it is important to consult an experienced attorney who will be able to advise the deceased man’s family of their legal rights and options. If a lawsuit is filed and the family needs financial assistance during the pending claim, Litigation Funding Corporation may be able to help. We provide a lawsuit cash advances, without consideration of credit score or employment status.
The first step would be to complete an online funding application. Then, we will work with the plaintiff’s attorney to gather necessary information to process the funding request as quickly as possible. Upon approval, funds can arrive by wire or check within 24-48 hours. While the money can be used at the client’s discretion, it typically helps pay medical expenses, funeral expenses, or important monthly obligations such as mortgage or rent payments and utility bills. This cash advance is not a “lawsuit loan” as it is often called; we are only repaid, if and when the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, the cash advance is waived in its entirety.
Financial relief during the litigation process is only a phone call away. Call Litigation Funding Corporation for a free, no-obligation consultation.
