DUI Driver Causes School Bus Crash Injuring 20 Reports Litigation Funding Corporation
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) January 23, 2012 - Thanks to a series of egregious mistakes, this bus crash hurt 20 innocent people.
“There is no way this three vehicle accident should have happened,” stated Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. “But thanks to a drunk driver, it did, and as a net result there are a large number of people who may well want to speak to their lawyers about their injuries.”
Here is what happened in this reported case. A school bus was heading home from a basketball game and was full of tired players just waiting to tell their families how the game went. Without any warning, they were involved in a wicked crash. It seems a 45-year-old man, impatient, drunk and behind the wheel of a truck, did not feel like waiting for a car that was going to make a left turn onto the road where the bus was traveling.
That decision caused the truck and car to get into a wreck, which then made the truck careen into the school bus. When the police arrived, it was quite obvious the man had been drinking and he was charged with drunk driving. The EMS crews took at least 17 students to the hospital, as well as the driver and another adult on the bus. There were two further victims in the car the truck had slammed into as well.
“Evidently the truck driver also had some injuries, which shouldn’t be much of a surprise, but they were minor despite hitting two separate vehicles. He had some time to sober up while in custody after he had been treated at the hospital and released back to the police,” added Monroe.
What about all of the victims? There is a good chance that some of them may file a personal injury lawsuit. That would largely depend on their injuries. There will be some that may face some serious recovery time and unfortunately, some hefty expenses. Some of the victims may have life threatening injuries that are not always evident right away but tend to show up later.
For those victims who will tackle large medical bills, possibly therapy, surgery or counseling, they will need to find the funding to pursue their legal options. To find the cash they need to tide them over until a trial or a settlement, one option would be to call a litigation funding company.
“Pre-settlement funding is cash given to a qualified plaintiff to help them get out of debt while they are waiting for their case to be resolved,” explained Monroe. “After any one of these families, or all of them, hire a lawyer to find out what their legal rights are, a litigation loan could be a smart thing to apply for to help them make financial ends meet.”
Lawsuit funding helps victims deal with those unexpected bills and handle all of their other pressing financial matters, such as the mortgage, rent or car payments. A lawsuit cash advance helps victims wait for an equitable settlement. If their application is approved, the funding can arrive in their bank account within 48 hours or less.
