A hit-and-run driver has been arrested for a car crash that killed an 81-year-old woman Virginia woman.
According to Virginia State Police, the woman was traveling westbound in a 1996 Ford Ranger when a 2015 Chrysler 300 traveling eastbound veered into the westbound traffic and sideswiped the Ranger, as well as a 1998 Lincoln Town Car. The Town Car spun out of control and came to a rest in the roadway. The driver of the Chrysler drove into a ditch and then fled on foot. The elderly woman was taken to an area hospital where she later died as a result of her injuries.
The negligent driver admitted himself to the hospital the next morning with serious injuries. Police later learned that he was the driver that caused the crash, and had signed for the Chrysler, a rental car. The investigation is still ongoing. There have been no reports as to whether the driver was distracted, driving under the influence, or what may have led him to veer into the westbound lane.
The last thing on anyone’s mind after a tragic auto accident, in which you lose a loved one, would be to file a lawsuit. However, a wrongful death lawsuit is usually the only way for a family to begin recovering from their losses physically, economically, and financially.
Plaintiffs should rely on an experienced auto accident attorney who can help guide them through an often lengthy and complicated litigation process. 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, delay, and defend the claim.
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. Once the lawsuit is underway, if finances are an issue, the family may wish to inquire about litigation funding.
Litigation Funding Corporation would be happy to help the grieving family meet immediate financial obligations.
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.
Eligibility is based on attorney representation and a strong case. Once these qualifications are met, the application process is quick and easy; it takes less than five minutes online or over the phone. 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.
Our review and approval process usually takes place in under 48 hours. If a plaintiff is approved for funding, the cash advance is sent via overnight mail or direct deposit. Repayment is made once the case settles, but if the plaintiff fails to achieve a settlement, repayment of the cash advance is completely waived.
If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident due to the negligence of someone else, a civil suit could be your only recourse when attempting to recover damages, and litigation funding may be the only means to avoid financial hardship.
