                                   Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan Indicates Fatal DUI
                                   Results in Wrongful Death Lawsuit
                                   Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) May 8, 2012 - A restaurant’s assistant manager left his workplace drunk.
                                   He rear-ended another vehicle, causing it to go up in flames.

                                   “The victim in this case, 32-year-old Quentin Miller, was badly burned, and did not survive. His family
                                   chose to file a wrongful death lawsuit, and also named the restaurant where the drunk driver worked as
                                   a defendant. The suit states that the assistant manager, Adam Burnell, was permitted to drink as much
                                   as he liked while he was at work. When he left the restaurant, he was completely inebriated,” explained
                                   Darren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan.

                                   No one really knows what the management at the restaurant was thinking, or if they even paid attention to how
                                   much alcohol the assistant manager consumed. However, one thing is quite evident, that the man had far more
                                   alcohol in his system than the legal limit, and was sufficiently impaired to cause the fiery accident that claimed
                                   the life of Quentin Miller.

                                   The police ultimately charged Burnell with felony DUI, a criminal charge. “Typically, the criminal charges are
                                   dealt with first and any other legal actions, such as a wrongful death lawsuit, are filed after the criminal charges
                                   have been handled,” said Monroe.

                                   On consulting an experienced wrongful death lawyer, the Miller family decided to include the Husk restaurant in
                                   the list of named defendants. They felt the restaurant had a responsibility to stop Burnell from drinking and not
                                   let him drink to excess while he was working. Additionally, they wanted to hopefully ensure this did not happen
                                   again. The lawsuit stated in part that the accident and subsequent death were not only foreseeable, but the
                                   actions of the driver, and the restaurant, were negligent, reckless, careless and willful.

                                   Miller’s family was in shock and likely faced enormous bills. They would be hard pressed to be able to pay them.
                                   Funeral and burial costs are not cheap, and they would also be coping with paying their usual monthly bills. The
                                   solution for them might have been accessing litigation funding. Legal finance services are designed to help
                                   plaintiffs facing large bills, as a result of losing their loved one. A lawsuit cash advance helps them handle their
                                   living expenses and other pressing bills, until their situation is resolved.

                                   In addition to almost immediate financial assistance, often with 24-48 hours, the pre-settlement funding may help
                                   leverage an expected settlement. Applying for litigation funding may be done online and is an easy process,
                                   requiring no credit checks, employment verification, or monthly payments. “You pay zero money until you
                                   successfully settle your case. Litigation funding assumes all the risk, and if you lose your case, you owe us
                                   nothing,” Monroe added.
