Driver Distraction May Have Been Cause In Fatal North Carolina Rollover Crash

December 6, 2016 | Product Liability

A serious auto accident in Charlotte, N.C. resulted in one person dead and three others injured.
Police said a female driver lost control of her Ford Explorer and ran off the right side of the road. When she attempted to drive the vehicle back onto the road she overcorrected to the left, entering into oncoming traffic. Overcorrecting again, she lost control and rolled the car, before it came to a rest on its side approximately 30 feet off the road in a field. The front passenger died at the scene. The driver and two minors in the rear of the vehicle were transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver has been charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle.

The investigation is ongoing, but police said it doesn’t appear speed or alcohol were factors in this crash. Could it be another case of distracted driving?

Far too many serious and fatal crashes are caused due to a distracted driver, whether it be talking or texting on the phone, looking at a GPS, fidgeting with the radio or other controls, eating, and more. When a loved one is killed due to driver negligence, the family may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Life necessities won’t wait for a lawsuit to settle, but victims should also not be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar jut because of pressing financial needs. If the family retains an attorney and files a claim, they are eligible for litigation funding.

Litigation funding is a cash advance against a pending lawsuit to supplement loss of income, pay funeral expenses, pay down debt, and cover everyday living expenses in order to wait for fair compensation. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full case value.
The application process is quick and easy, with no cost to apply, no upfront fees, no monthly payments, no credit checks and no hassles. Once a plaintiff is approved for funding, the money arrives typically within 24-48 hours. Repayment of the cash advance is made from the case proceeds, but if the plaintiff is not successful, there is no obligation to pay us back.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another driver, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit, and experiencing financial hardship, consider litigation funding from Litigation Funding Corporation. We can be reached at 1-866-LIT-FUND or by completing our online contact form.
