Pre-Settlement Funding for Mass Transit AccidentsFebruary 11, 2016
“Stephanie” (not a real person) knew that something was wrong.
As she headed down the dark tunnels towards the airport and her early morning shift, something about the roar of the wind and the motion of the car seemed off. She had ridden the subway pretty much every day for years, and the speed with which the train was approaching the end of the tracks made her nervous.
She assumed that the driver would decelerate in time, that she was just tired and her mind was playing tricks on her. She was wrong. As the train jumped the final barrier and rode up the station escalator, she thought to herself “how late am I going to be for work?”
Although Stephanie survived, that question has since become moot. She has not been able to work for weeks, now, thanks to the injuries she sustained in the mass transit accident. She suffered numerous broken bones and internal lacerations; her hospital bills are astronomical, and insurance only goes so far. Stephanie, along with other victims, has sued the city — the driver was coming off an improperly long shift—but the case is slowly working its way through the justice system.
Stephanie can barely keep up with the rent and putting food on the table for her kids; she has yet to go back to work, and her savings are dwindling. With a cold, northern winter raging, Stephanie cannot continue to hold out hope for a magic, quick end to her tort. Lawyers for the city, the transit authority, and the union all will make her case long and difficult.
Stephanie’s lawyer suggested that she take her case to USClaims to get some money from her case without having to wait for a verdict to come in.
