Speeding and Toll Booths Do Not Mix Says Litigation Funding Corporation of Michigan
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) August 30, 2011 - Driving recklessly while in the vicinity of a toll booth is never a good idea. This death was tragic and unnecessary.
“Speeding is never a good idea to begin with,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation in Southfield, Michigan. “In this reported case, the driver of the out of control car hit and killed a toll booth operator. The speeding vehicle hit a cement barrier and went airborne, directly into the attendant.”
The police report indicated that the vehicle, a Chevy Camaro, was zipping down the road at a very high speed when it careened into a cement barrier. The impact was so forceful it threw the car up into the air, hitting the female booth attendant who was outside sweeping a closed lane. “While booth operators are used to seeing accidents, they don’t really expect to be the victim of one like this,” Monroe said.
The tollbooth operator was thrown at least 50 yards in the air before landing in a broken heap. She did not survive her injuries. As for the Camaro, it came to rest a 100 yards down from where it hit the cement barrier. The driver was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries.
The victim’s family may want to file a wrongful death lawsuit in this case. If that is what they choose to do, they may be looking for emergency funding to help them pay their bills. They could get this type of lawsuit loan through the auspices of a litigation funding company. “It’s not hard to apply for pre-settlement funding. In fact, all a plaintiff needs to do is call us, or fill out an application online. We assess the merits of the case and go from there,” Monroe explained.
Plaintiffs get a good deal when they apply for lawsuit funding. The lawsuit cash advance allows them to get out of debt by paying off all of their bills while they wait for justice. Pre-settlement funding, once approved for a plaintiff, is sent directly to their bank for deposit, allowing the victim to access what money they need to handle their bills. “In the meantime, they don’t have to deal with any insurance companies who come along with cheap settlement offers,” added Monroe.
