Summer Auto Accident: Pre-Settlement Funding
It was a perfect summer day – bright and sunny and warm – the kind that begs for a break from the stress of daily life. Along with her husband and three children, “Denise” (not a real person) decided to take her family to the water park just outside of town. They’d been planning the trip for weeks, lining up the vacation time from their office jobs, and were delighted that the weather had decided to comply.
Denise pulled her car into the two-way center turn lane and waited patiently for traffic on the highway to clear before turning left into the water park. As she waited, stationary, in the lane, she turned around to talk to her daughter in the back seat. Just as she did so, her husband shouted in panic and another vehicle plowed into their front end.
The next thing Denise knew, her car was on the side of the road, having spun around and drifted onto the shoulder. Her husband reached over her to put the car into park and helped her and the children out. Denise could barely move, her neck wrenched and shoulder badly sprained. The injuries to the others were, thankfully, minor.
The “perfect” day had been ruined, but worse days were to come. Denise’s neck refused to heal on its own, leaving expensive surgery as her only option. Her car was a total loss, as well, and even with her and her husband’s combined income, it was difficult to replace.
Worst of all, when Denise sought damages against the other driver, he claimed that Denise had turned in front of him, causing the accident. Denise’s husband thought the other driver had been trying to edge around a car in the opposite lane that was turning into the water park and got too far into their lane, but it was a case of one person’s word against another’s.
With a long legal battle looming – as well as significant costs for Denise’s medical bills and replacement vehicle – her lawyer suggested she contact USClaims to seek pre-settlement funding.
