DUI May Have been the Cause of Three Vehicle Pile Up Leaving Two Dead

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) February 25, 2011 - No matter how many times people read about DUI deaths, they still drink and drive. One day, the reality will catch up with them.

Lawsuit Funding FamilyThe holiday season seems to be the time when more often than not, people tie one on and then hit the road. It does not seem to matter that they know drinking and driving is a stupid thing to do. They do it anyway. Some make it home alive. Others injure or kill themselves or others in needless accidents.

Consider the three-car collision on Washington State’s Route 516 that left two dead and three seriously injured. “It was in the middle of the night; dead time as it is referred to by many cops on patrol. A female driver lost control of her Malibu and wound up heading east in a westbound lane. She slammed head-on into a Honda Civic. Another car, a Honda Passport, unable to avoid the accident right in front of it, collided with the Malibu as well,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.

The Malibu driver, Amanda Berman, and the driver of the Honda Passport, Jose Cuellar, were killed on impact. A passenger in the Malibu was seriously injured. The Honda Civic driver was critically injured and the police ultimately wanted to investigate him on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter. “This is an unusual twist in this case, considering that Berman, in her Malibu, caused the accident in the first place. The police believe drugs and alcohol were a factor in the three-car crash,” Monroe said.

No doubt the survivors of this wreck will want some legal advice, particularly if they spent any time in the hospital. The family of those who died may also wish to file wrongful death lawsuits. In either instance, the plaintiffs will be in a tricky financial position. They will have enormous bills to pay as a result of the wreck, the medical bills, the funeral and burial costs. Those expenses, coming on top of their usual bills, would cause a lot of anxiety.

“One perfect answer for their financial difficulties is to apply for pre-settlement funding from a legal finance company. It’s easy to do by filling out an online form on their website or by calling them. Litigation funding is cash in advance of a verdict or settlement that the plaintiff may access once their case has been approved,” Monroe said.

Once the plaintiff/victim has the cash in hand, they head off to pay their bills and then hold on for justice to be served. The lawsuit cash advance is a tremendous advantage for them, since it lets them turn down ridiculous offers made by insurance companies looking to settle a case for peanuts. With pre-settlement funding, the plaintiff has total control over their case and their finances. “It’s certainly worth checking out and may be just the thing to help a financially strapped victim pay their bills while they wait for their trial,” Monroe said.
