Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) May 10, 2011 - Drag racing is never a smart move. This head-on crash resulted in critical injuries for one participant, and, remarkably, no deaths.
“It appears that a Hyundai Tiburon and a Honda Civic were drag racing, neck and neck at high speeds on a highway, when the Hyundai rammed into the front of a police cruiser. The officer was helping a colleague with a traffic stop,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.
The driver of the Hyundai, Alejandro Ramos, sustained critical injuries, and the officer made it out virtually unscathed. Ramos was airlifted to the hospital for emergency care. The Honda driver sustained no injuries, nor did his passenger, even though the police think the Honda also hit the patrol car. This was an accident scene right out of a “Fast and Furious” movie; there were vehicle parts all over the road, flashing lights, sirens and medical personnel assisting the critically injured Hyundai driver.
The police report speculated that the two drivers were drag racing immediately prior to the accident. Both drivers will be charged with operating to endanger, speeding, marked lane violation and driving without a license. “Imagine, two unlicensed drivers out on the highway, with passengers, drag racing and slamming into a police cruiser. The truth is often stranger than fiction,” Monroe said.
While there is criminal culpability here, there is also negligence; someone will speak to a personal injury lawyer about filing a lawsuit to recover compensation for his or her injuries. If a lawsuit is warranted and filed, the victim may qualify for lawsuit funding and s/he can call the legal finance company, toll free, or complete an easy online form at their website.
If a plaintiff qualifies, pre-settlement funding can be forwarded within 24 to 48 hours. Use it to pay important bills and expenses, and then wait for justice without financial pressure to settle too early for too little. Refuse inadequate offers from greedy insurance companies. Use lawsuit funding and leverage their money to a fair resolution of a personal injury case.
“Plaintiffs have a number of advantages when it comes to legal funding,” Monroe said. “For instance, they do not pay upfront money, there are no hidden fees, they do not need to go through a credit check and they do not make monthly payments on their lawsuit cash advance. If you find yourself in a situation where you have been badly hurt and have no money to pay the bills, call a litigation funding company and find out how they can help you.”
