Hit and Run Accident Kills Biker
A biker lost control of his ride and veered into oncoming traffic. He was hit by an SUV.
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) July 2, 2010 - John Longman didn’t think his day was going to be any different than the other days of his motorcycle trip with friends. He was riding in a cluster of ten cycles on Highway 80 just outside of Des Moines, Iowa, when for some reason he lost control of his ride and wound up in a lane of oncoming traffic. As the bike was spinning out of control, he fell off it and was hit by a white SUV. When EMS crews got to the scene, Longman was dead.
Unfortunately, the SUV left the scene of the accident and the police report indicated the driver may not have known they hit someone. “While it might seem hard to believe, the SUV hit a person and not another vehicle, which may not have registered with the driver as anything other than a bump in the road,” stated Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.
One thing is for certain, the SUV would not have sustained much damage in the incident. The police are making every effort to track down the SUV driver.
“There are a whole slew of unanswered questions here, but the major ones would involve how fast the white SUV was traveling, whether or not they were paying attention to what they were doing, how could they have missed the fact they hit a person, and why they left the scene of the accident,” Monroe commented.
The Longman family may well want to talk to a motorcycle accident attorney about this situation and find out what their rights are, and how to recover compensation for the loss of their loved one. It will likely be a long case in the winning and they might want to discuss pre-settlement funding with a litigation funding company.
A lawsuit cash advance would help the family pay any expenses related to the accident and take care of their regular bills, like the mortgage and car payments. “In the meantime, the lawsuit funding could be tucked away in the bank within about 48 hours of applying for it and being approved. Litigation funding is provided in advance of any settlement or verdict and lets the plaintiff wait for a fair and equitable settlement and not have to settle for a pittance from the insurance company,” suggested Monroe.
Lawsuit funding is easy to apply for and may be done online or by phone. The plaintiff does not have to pay any upfront fees or monthly payments, and they don’t have to go through a credit check either. Lawsuit financing is becoming an excellent resource for cash strapped plaintiffs (who qualify) with no other way to pay their bills.
