Habitual DUI Driver Kills Jogger

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) November 10, 2016 - In June 2015, a Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania triathlete was killed in a hit-and-run accident, by a habitual drunk driving offender.

The offender in this fatal accident, who pled guilty to his crime, is currently serving six to 17 years for the death of a 31-year-old woman who was out jogging in her community.

According to the police who responded to the accident, the drunk driver fled the scene. Law enforcement was able to apprehend him at his home later that evening. The Police report that the driver had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.214, two hours after the deadly accident, the legal limit being 0.08.

The drunk driver had at least five prior DUI convictions and an arrest for boating while under the influence (BWI).

The woman’s estate is seeking punitive damages by way of a wrongful death lawsuit for the defendant choosing to drive his vehicle while inebriated.

“In a situation such as this one,” said Litigation Funding Corporation representative, Daren Monroe, “the deceased’s family may wish to consider applying for a lawsuit loan to help them pay any extra expenses they may be facing as a result of the jogger’s death.”

A lawsuit loan is an emergency cash advance to an approved plaintiff that helps them financially with monthly expenses and the sudden, extra expenses as a result of the death.

“Lawsuit cash funding is also referred to as pre-settlement funding, case financing, legal funding and legal financing. It’s there to help you now while your case is making its way through the courts or toward a settlement,” added Monroe.

The loans are not based on an applicant’s credit history. They are given to the plaintiff to apply toward a pending personal injury case, provided it is being handled by an attorney. The loan is only repaid if and when a case settles or the plaintiff wins.
