Argument Over Counterfeit Money Kills One, Injures Another

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) August 17, 2012 - Truth really is stranger than fiction. This case involved a fake $100 bill.

“You hear about a lot of strange things in this line of work,” said Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation in Michigan. “This one made me do a complete double take. One man was killed and another injured after arguing about fake money.”

It happened in Texas and involved a semi and a van. A 60-year-old man tried to run away from a police officer who wanted to question him about allegedly giving someone a counterfeit $100 bill. In the process of trying to flee in his 18-wheeler, he slammed into a van, killing a 58-year old woman and seriously injuring the woman’s husband. A further twist to this story is that no one knew the semi had hit the van because both were rammed into a garage after the trucker lost control of his rig.

“It wasn’t a surprise that the trucker was slapped with intoxication manslaughter charges, among others. Does the surviving spouse of the dead innocent victim have a wrongful death case? Yes, and possibly a good reason for punitive damages, based on the facts of this case: passing fake money, fleeing police while drunk, killing someone and seriously injuring another,” suggested Monroe.

What is patently clear in this case is that the surviving spouse will likely call a personal injury lawyer and find out his legal rights. His wife is dead because of a drunk trucker, and he is battling serious personal injuries. He has lost a lot in a short period of time and will need financial assistance to get back on his feet and pay his bills while he waits for the case to be settled or go to court. Litigation funding would be the perfect answer to his predicament.

The husband could apply for a lawsuit cash advance online or pick up the phone and call a litigation funding company. There are no hoops to jump through; plaintiffs do not pay anything to apply, nor do they pay anything from month to month. There are no credit checks, and the plaintiff does not need to have a job. “The fact is, most applicants for pre-settlement funding are too seriously injured to be working,” explained Monroe.

Litigation funding offers qualified plaintiffs a large number of benefits, plus they may keep the lawsuit loan if they do happen to lose their case. Once a lawyer is hired to handle the case, the next step would be to contact a litigation funding company.
