Van and Garbage Truck Accident Kills Baby Injures Four
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) February 10, 2011 - The driver of the van in this instance made a fatal decision to change directions after a light had changed. The result was death for a 9-month-old girl.
This Cedar City, Utah accident was as inexplicable and unbelievable as it was devastating. Two vehicles, a very large city garbage truck and a van, collided. In the aftermath, a child was left dead, three young boys were critically hurt and the female driver was also in rough shape.
“There were eyewitnesses to this wreck and they indicated that the van had gone to make a left turn on to a street, when for some reason, the woman changed her mind and continued to drive straight forward through the intersection, even though the light had changed,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.
The garbage truck was right smack in the way, saw the van coming and tried to avert an accident by swerving. Unfortunately, the truck could not get out of the way in time and the van clipped it; hard. The impact was so forceful that it caused the truck to turn on its side and keep pushing the van along the road. When the dust settled, two bystanders managed to break out a window and get two of the children out.
The truck hit the driver’s side of the van and in the process killed a 9-month-old baby in the backseat. Three boys, two aged 2 and one aged 11, all in car seats, were critically injured. The van’s driver was also critically injured. “Apparently, the kids injured in this wreck did not have the same last name as the driver and the relationship is not clear. The police will be launching an investigation into this fatal wreck; with the most burning question being, why did the van driver change her mind and go through a red light?” Monroe asked.
The child’s family will want to seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer and find out how to move forward with their case. The medical expenses in this instance, with three critically injured children, will be phenomenal. Combine this with funeral and burial expenses and daily living expenses and the family will need financial help to get through to verdict.
The family might want to apply for pre-settlement funding to help them pay their bills and be able to wait until a verdict in their case is reached. They only have to fill out an application with the litigation funding company, wait for it to be approved, wait for the lawsuit cash advance to arrive and then take care of all of their bills.
“There is no hassle to apply, no upfront fees that need to be paid, no credit checks required, no monthly payments to make and no requirement for the applicants to be working when they apply for legal funding. When the litigation funding is in place, this lets the plaintiff’s turn down insurance company offers; a good move, since they are usually far too low,” Monroe said.
