Drunk Boating Accident Kills 9-Year-Old Boy

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) September 17, 2012 - Driving any vehicle under the influence is not a smart move.

“It just boggles the imagination that anyone thinks it is ok to drive a potentially lethal weapon—car, truck or boat—while under the influence. Evidently, people still think that they ‘can’ drink and drive; the simple truth is they cannot and should not. In this case, a drunken boater took the life of a 9-year-old boy,” said Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan

Paul Bennett was not paying attention to what he was doing while in his fishing boat on a local Atlanta lake. His inattentiveness caused him to slam into a pontoon boat that was loaded with 13 passengers. On impact, some of the passengers fell overboard and were injured; a 9-year-old boy was killed. “Rather than remain at the scene of the accident, Bennett fled. He was later apprehended by police and charged with boating under the influence of alcohol,” explained Monroe.

According to statistics released by the U.S. Coast Guard, there were 758 boating deaths in the nation in 2011, up from 671 in 2010. If these figures tell any kind of a story, they show that carelessness and alcohol do not mix when it comes to piloting water craft.

The parents of the 9-year-old may want to consult with a wrongful death lawyer to find out how they may file a wrongful death lawsuit. In the meantime, waiting for a trial will take several long months, if not years. When someone dies suddenly, life still goes on, and the bills must still be paid. Not only is this family faced with funeral and burial expenses, but their grieving may hinder them from working while they try to heal and move forward.

To solve their possible financial difficulties, they may want to seek litigation funding, also referred to as pre-settlement funding. A lawsuit cash advance is emergency funding for the plaintiff that they may use for anything they choose, but more often than not, it is used to pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses and other related costs. It arrives in less than 48 hours once a case has been approved, and it is deposited directly to the plaintiff’s bank account.

“While litigation funding is not for everyone, it is worth checking it out. Your call or online application is treated with respect and privacy. You do not pay anything to apply or any monthly fees to access litigation funding,” Monroe assured.
