Recently, a car crash involving a motorcycle killed a woman rider in New York. She was allegedly struck as she rode through an intersection. She was thrown from her bike and suffered a serious head injury on impact with the ground.
An ambulance with a paramedic sped to the scene only to find the woman with multiple injuries, which it was later revealed included traumatic brain injury (TBI). The emergency personnel made attempts to treat her wounds and transported her to the nearest hospital emergency room. On arrival, despite desperate efforts to save the woman, she lost her life.
At this stage, the cause of death is most likely to be TBI but further investigations will confirm this. People who use motorcycles as a form of transport are potentially exposing themselves to serious injuries if a negligent driver fails to pay attention to a motorcyclist when driving on busy highways. The most serious bike accidents are often caused by another driver either speeding, under the influence of alcohol or simply driving recklessly.
Once struck, the motorcycle gives little protection. That means any collision is inevitably going to lead to some type of injury, often serious and often not the fault of the motorcyclist.
It is suggested the cause of the death was TBI, a common injury in motorcycle accidents, despite the head being protected by a helmet. The head is a vulnerable part of the body and if it comes into contact with a hard object such as the road’s surface or another vehicle, TBI would quite likely take place. This is a life threatening injury as the brain enables the rest of the body to function. If damaged by a serious head injury the rest of the body will give up the ability to survive.
Apart from TBI there are other serious injuries that commonly occur when a motorcycle crashes and these include spinal injury, arterial hemorrhaging and internal injuries. All of these are potentially life threatening.
When a motorist is harmed in an automobile accident through the negligence of another, a lawsuit to recover damages is often filed. While no amount of money can adequately compensate an injured party for their pain, courts attempt to do so financially in the form of monetary damages.
One problem facing litigants is the time it takes to pursue a lawsuit against a negligent party. In many jurisdictions, personal injury lawsuit can take years to reach settlement.
Meanwhile, monthly expenses continue to come in the mail and litigants are sometimes financially unable to keep up.
Whether the person is killed or faces a long recovery period as a result of a motorcycle or any other accident, lawsuit funding is a possible to help litigants endure the long drawn out process of pursuing a lawsuit.
Lawsuit settlement funding is a financial transaction in which a plaintiff sells a portion of the proceeds of the lawsuit (if any) to a funding company which provides cash now to the litigant.
The purpose of lawsuit funding is to ensure a plaintiff does not have to accept a “low ball” settlement offer because he/she is strapped for cash. Instead, lawsuit funding contracts allow the litigant the financial staying power to push the defendant to make a fair and just settlement offer or else face a trial.
There are no credit checks and absolutely no restrictions on the money’s use. The lawsuit cash advance can be used for monthly expenses or simply to pay off past debts. Best of all, there is no repayment if the lawsuit is not successful. That is, because these transactions are ‘non-recourse’, if the lawsuit is lost, the settlement loan is not repaid.
