Drinking and Driving Leaves Father of Three Dead

A head-on collision, fueled by alcohol, left one dead and a family in turmoil and shock.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) January 11, 2011 - The family of off-duty NYPD officer, Andre Menzies, was thrown into complete shock when his vehicle was hit, head-on, by a van going the wrong way on the Northern State Parkway. He never made it home that night. His family, his wife and three kids would never see him again. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck.

“The van driver, Michael Bowen, was well and truly drunk when he drove his van westbound in the eastbound lanes of the Parkway. Strangely enough, he only suffered minor injuries and was arrested and charged with DUI and reckless driving. His cash bond at arraignment was $350,000,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.

Without a doubt, the Menzies family will want to speak to a wrongful death lawyer and likely initiate a wrongful death action. They were left suddenly bereft of the major breadwinner in their family and they would need financial assistance to not only bury their loved one, but to continue on with their lives.

They may be interested to know that they have an option open to them that would see they receive a lawsuit cash advance within 48 hours. This option, referred to as litigation funding, is an emergency lawsuit loan, advanced to the family, to let them pay their bills and get on with trying to cope with their lives. Part of the legal funding would pay for the funeral and burial expenses of Officer Menzies.

Applying for pre-settlement funding is not a complicated procedure. The family needs to either fill out an online form or call the lawsuit funding company directly. Once the case is evaluated, the lawsuit cash advance is sent within 24 to 48 hours. “We do not take long to approve a good case,” Monroe said, “as we understand that when a plaintiff comes to us for legal funding, they need help right away.”

Even though litigation funding is not a well known option for many plaintiffs, it is starting to receive more recognition. It is a particularly timely emergency lawsuit funding loan when a family has been thrown into financial straits by a sudden death. “You are welcome to call us for further information if you are in a situation where you need fast cash to help you wait for justice,” Monroe said.
