Although slip and fall accidents are more prevalent during the winter – when roads and walkways are often covered in snow and/or ice – many other conditions can increase the risk of a slip and fall accident, such as defective stairs or walkways, improper lighting, fallen debris, wet floors without “wet floor” caution signs, and falling merchandise.
While many slip and fall accidents are preventable, some are not. Injuries can range from mild to severe. Fortunately, most people walk away with only a few cuts, scrapes and bruises. Other times, these accidents result in broken bones, concussions, short-term or long-term disabilities, and more. They may require surgery and physical therapy.
Just because you were injured does not automatically result in liability on the property owner. As with any type of slip and fall accident, the proper owner is generally only liable if he or she knew about the problem – or should have known about the problem – and failed to fix it.
If you believe that your slip and fall accident was caused due to the negligence of another, you should contact a personal injury attorney. You may be able to receive compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of compensation, and medical bills.
Slip and fall lawsuits are hard fought; compensation could be months, even years away. If you are seriously injured or disabled and unable to return to work, the financial impact can be devastating. You will be at a significant disadvantage against a powerful, well-financed insurance company that will deliberately drag its feet to make you become desperate to resolve the case. Litigation funding can help stay financially afloat in the short-term and increase the value of your case in the long-term.
Litigation funding is money advanced in anticipation of a potential settlement or verdict. It is specifically designed to let plaintiffs take control of their case. With a lawsuit cash advance in the bank, the victim can pay the mortgage, medical expenses, and take care of financial commitments without settling for less than full case value. Funding is based on case merit. Whether good credit or bad credit; employed or not, it doesn’t matter. There are also no monthly payments. Repayment is contingent on the outcome of the case. Win and we are repaid from the proceeds of the settlement; lose, you owe us absolutely nothing.
