Slip and Fall Risks Increase During Holiday Shopping

During the busy holiday season, shoppers should be aware of the potential for slip-and-fall accidents that can occur when hazardous conditions are not quickly remedied by retail establishments or their employees. One of the most common slip and fall injuries is when a retailer leaves a slippery substance on the floor without putting up proper signage. Other dangerous conditions such as ripped or torn carpeting, changes in flooring, or scattered merchandise.

Premises liability mandates that all property owners and operators take reasonable precautions to ensure their grounds are safe for visitors and guests. Unfortunately, many take this duty lightly and fail to keep up with regular maintenance. When this basic obligation is breached, victims are able to sue for damages, but this is not always easy. It must be shown that a “dangerous condition” caused the accident and the retailer knew the dangerous condition existed.

Determining negligence requires legal expertise. Even then, business owners and their insurance companies employ deny, delay, and defend tactics. The insurance company will also work the legal system to buy as much time as possible so that they can hold onto their money hoping the victim will give up and settle for less than the value of the case. That is where lawsuit funding comes in handy.

Lawsuit funding can be a life-line for many who would have limited resources to continue litigation, let alone pay the mortgage and hospital bills. There is no need for a credit check, collateral, or employment verification because the lawsuit cash advance is provided solely on the strength of the case. One of the major advantages is that if the case is lost, or a settlement isn’t offered, the cash advance does not have to be repaid. Additionally, there are no contingencies on how the cash advance is used.

If you become embroiled in contentious litigation with a business owner and an insurance company arising from your slip and fall accident and injury, Lawsuit Financial would be more than happy to discuss what options are available when it comes to paying the bills until a settlement is reached. Once your application for funding is approved, we will deposit fund directly into your bank account or send a check overnight. Call us today, toll free, at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848).
