Inflatable Slide Nearly Kills Young Boy at Playground

I A six year old boy was almost suffocated by an inflatable slide at his school carnival. When the young boy tried to enter the slide where two sections come together instead of at the entry way he became wedged between the two pieces.

Apparently, someone advised a slide attendant that there was a child stuck between two pieces of the slide. The attendant checked the area and found the that the boy was wedged in between and not breathing. Fortunately, two sheriff’s deputies happened to be on the scene at the time; they performed CPR and the boy was rushed to hospital for treatment. It was sheer luck that the young boy was found as quickly as he was and that these two heroes were in attendance.

Depending upon his condition, the parents of this young boy may want to discuss this accident case with a personal injury lawyer to find out what their rights are in this case. In situations like this, there is always a concern about lack of oxygen to the child’s brain and whether or not he may sustain brain damage; it is unknown whether that is an issue in this case. As to potential liability, the issues of whether this is simply a dangerous product or whether the slide was improperly set up and/or monitored will be the feature issues in any potential litigation.

If the family retains an attorney and pursues litigation, it may also wish to see if it is eligible for a lawsuit cash advance to help pay medical expenses and future care and assistance for the boy. While the young child is too young to contract with a lawsuit funding company, the parents could use that portion of any settlement or verdict designated for them to provide care and treatment as collateral for a legal finance transaction. Lawsuit Financial is owned and operated by an experienced attorney who can guide through the process and help determine whether benefits received qualify for litigation funding while they await a verdict or settlement.
If the child’s injuries are severe, he may require care for the rest of his life. If that is the case, the award estimated may include a fairly substantial stipend for care and treatment. It is against this potential award that pre-settlement funding is possible. There is no cost to apply for a “lawsuit loan”; there is no credit check and applicants do not need to be employed. With lawsuit financing, the collateral is found in the strength of the plaintiff’s case. If a plaintiff is approved, funds will be provided, via check or wire, within 48 hours.

Whether you apply online or by phone (1-877-377-SUIT), be certain that the litigation funding company you contact has the requisite legal and legal funding experience to deal with your situation. Test the straightforwardness of the transaction: Are there hidden fees? Complicated formulas? Up-front fees? Monthly payments? Lawsuit Financial offers no hidden fees, straightforward, easy to understand terms, and more combined legal and legal funding experience than anyone in this business.
