Pedestrian Car Accident Kills 13-Year Old
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) July 3, 2013 - A young girl was killed by a car in front of her classmates.
“This car/pedestrian fatality affected a lot of people. The young girl's friends were witnesses as she was hit by a car. She died two weeks later, as a result of her severe injuries,” outlined Daren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. Ultimately, this wrongful death case resulted in a jury award of $90 million. While a large sum, it would barely cover the medical expenses the family was left with when their daughter died after struggling with her injuries for 14-days.
“On the day of the fatal accident, the girl was on her way to school and was struck by a Lincoln Continental. After the vehicle slammed into the teen, it continued on to also hit a 17-year-old boy, who survived the accident,” said Monroe.
The family sued the local school board, stating that it was their negligence that led to their daughter’s sudden death. They had a safe transportation policy to pick children up on their own side of the street. That did not happen the day of the girl's death. She had to cross the street to get to her bus and was killed while crossing the street.
“This family was left with the grief of losing their child and enormous medical bills. The perfect solution for them may have been to apply for litigation funding, or a lawsuit cash advance. They would need the funds to help them pay all of their usual and extraordinary expenses,” commented Monroe. Pre-settlement funding can be applied for by a plaintiff, once they have hired a lawyer to handle their case. They simply provide case details to the lawsuit loan company and have it assessed. Once approved, the lawsuit cash advance is sent within 24 to 48-hours.
Litigation funding is not for everyone, but those plaintiffs that are cash-strapped and needing help to pay their financial obligations, may find it useful during their time of need.
