When Drunk Driving Kills and Maims, a Lawsuit Advance Can HelpAugust 6, 2015
Tara’s bachelorette party was going to be epic. It would be talked about for years, even if “Tara” (not a real person) herself might only remember bits and pieces of it. Tara’s bridesmaids, though, had handled everything responsibly. They knew that they would be spending the evening, and possibly much of the night, out on the town and would probably be doing a fair amount of drinking, so they had hired a limousine and a professional driver.
Unfortunately, they couldn’t do anything about the other drivers on the road. The day was still young and the sun hadn’t yet set when the ladies’ limo pulled away from the first stop on their bachelorette odyssey. The laughs, joking, and stories were already well underway, and none of them paid much attention as the limo passed through an eight-lane intersection with the green traffic light.
That was when they “met” a local man whose day of drinking had begun several hours earlier, despite the fact that he was on the job. The drunk driver wasn’t paying as much attention to the traffic light as the ladies’ limousine driver had been. He barreled through the light in a panel van belonging to the lawn care company that employed him, crashing into the side of the limousine and nearly tearing it in two.
Tara and two of her bridesmaids were killed instantly. The others suffered serious injuries from which they may never fully recover. The crash impacted dozens of lives. Beyond those whose lives were cut tragically short, some of the young survivors had just begun promising careers; others were already married or recently had started families. Now they and their families were doing their best to move forward, even as they coped with rehabilitation, lost income, and insufficient health insurance.
With her attorney’s advice, one of the surviving women filed her civil suit against the driver and his employer. She told her friends, who also had filed suits, what her attorney had told her: “Call USClaims.”
After consulting with the plaintiffs’ attorneys, USClaims was able to approve pre-settlement funding for survivors of the crash and the families of the deceased. They all had the money they needed to cover their expenses within a few days of speaking with us.
Tara won’t be getting married. But thanks to USClaims, her family and friends are in a better position to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives and start living again. If you’ve been injured, or if someone you love has been killed or injured in a drunk driving crash, we can help.
