A tour bus crash was one of the deadliest in decades and claimed the lives of 13 people.
A wrongful death lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against a well-known bus company and the estate of the deceased bus driver. The suit alleges the driver failed to apply his brakes to avoid the crash, the bus was not properly maintained, and the driver was speeding just prior to the accident.
More than 45 people were riding the tour bus the day of the accident when the bus collided with an 18-wheeler on I-10 near Palm Springs. The bus was heading back from the Red Earth Casino.
According to the investigation of the wreck, launched by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the bus was not in compliance with vehicle safety standards – two of eight tires did not have sufficient tread to be considered safe. The NTSB investigation was not the only one to try to find out what happened. Attorneys for the families filing lawsuits also began independent investigations in the hopes to expose an allegedly poorly regulated industry.
The families that filed wrongful death lawsuits would likely be facing financial difficulties to pay for funeral and burial expenses. They would need a source of funding to help carry them through until a settlement or trial of their case. A lawsuit cash advance is a solution for plaintiffs.
What is a lawsuit cash advance? It is an advance of funds to a qualified plaintiff to pay an attorney and help settle other pressing bills and expenses. This kind of funding is also referred to as litigation funding.
Applying for pre-settlement funding is easy. The only requirement is having an attorney for representation. Litigation funding may be received within 24 to 48 hours of being approved.
