A single-vehicle crash in central Nebraska claimed the life of two young men, after a heavy-duty pick-up truck left the roadway, ran into a ditch, and rolled at least one full rotation before coming to a rest. Two passengers were ejected; they were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and three other passengers were taken treated for injuries at a nearby hospital. Multiple beer cans allegedly were recovered from the accident scene.
Police reports state the driver had a blood alcohol level of .09; the legal limit to drive in Nebraska is .08. He was charged with two counts of felony manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol. He could face up to 40 years in prison. He could also face wrongful death lawsuits.
An experienced auto accident attorney can help protect the rights of the victims and help them receive compensation for their loss. Even with the help of an experienced attorney, a lawsuit can drag on as the insurance company for the negligent driver will most likely deny fault and delay the litigation process. For the victim’s family, life won’t wait for a lawsuit to settle nor should they be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar because of pressing financial needs. When finances are an issue, litigation funding can be a solution.
Litigation funding is a cash advance of an expected settlement. Its main purpose is to assist plaintiffs with the likely loss of wages, mounting medical bills, funeral expenses, daily household bills, and other out-of-pocket expenses until a settlement is reached. Unlike a traditional bank loan; funding can be obtained without the need for a credit check or employment verification; the only collateral required is a pending lawsuit. Funding is based strictly on case strength.
Request for funding applications can be made over the phone or online, with approvals as quickly as 24 hours. Once a contract is signed, the money is sent via overnight mail or direct deposit. Funding is provided on a non-recourse basis. When the case settles, the cash advance is repaid from the case proceeds. If the plaintiff fails in achieving a settlement, repayment is completely waived.
If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to a drunk driver and need financial assistance, consider litigation funding to help wage your legal battle for the best possible settlement.
