Nine-Year-Old Boy Dies as Result of Car Accident

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) September 10, 2012 - The driver in an accident that took a young boy’s life was under the influence of drugs.

“You hear a lot of stories about people driving drunk, but driving under the influence can and does mean driving under the influence of drugs too. In this shocking case, a 23-year-old female was indicted on felony charges of aggravated driving under the influence, resulting in the death of a 9-year-old boy out riding his bike,” said Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan.

Tests indicate the woman had amphetamines and marijuana in her system at the time of the accident. According to police reports, the woman was driving home from work when she turned left, slamming into a van. The impact caused her vehicle to spin out, landing on the northeast sidewalk and running into the 9-year-old boy who was riding his bike in that location. The impact pushed the boy across the street, into another car.

“The little second grader died at the scene,” Monroe recounted, “and when the police arrived, they checked the woman’s driving record and discovered she had a criminal record for unlawful possession of cannabis. They promptly called for drug tests.”

Once the criminal charges are dealt with, a civil lawsuit may be filed. The family of the child may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit to ensure, in part, that this kind of thing does not happen to any other family. Money will not bring the boy back, but it may assist the parents financially in trying to move on with their lives.

Waiting for justice could devastate the family financially. In order to handle all of their mounting bills and expenses, they may want to apply for pre-settlement funding. “Pre-settlement funding, also referred to as litigation funding, is a cash advance to a qualified plaintiff; it is money that allows them to deal with all of their bills while they wait for their case to go to court or reach a settlement. The process to apply for a lawsuit loan is quick and easy, and it may be done online or by phone,” Monroe explained.

Qualified plaintiffs receive their lawsuit loan in less than 48 hours and do not have any obligations to pay this pre-settlement funding back, unless they win their case. There are no upfront payments, no monthly payments and no credit checks required. While a legal funding is not for everyone, it is worth learning more if you are a financially-strapped plaintiff awaiting justice.
