Slip and fall accidents commonly occur due to uneven walking surfaces, holes or cracks in the ground, slippery floors, steps, or sidewalks, poorly marked hazards, or lack of maintenance. These accidents can occur in a number of places such as sidewalks, stores, schools, restaurants, and hospitals. They can result in debilitating injuries that may require months or even years of medical care.
A person injured in a slip and fall accident due to a property owner’s negligence may be eligible to receive compensatory damages, including payment of medical bills, lost wages, compensation for permanent disability, emotional distress, and other reasonable damages associated with the accident.
Case in point is a lawsuit recently filed by an Ohio couple. After having breakfast at a local restaurant, the man slipped on an icy surface and fell, causing injury to his wrist. As a result, he was out of work for months and endured significant medical expenses. The lawsuit alleges that the restaurant failed to exercise reasonable care and caution in the operation and maintenance of its premises. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
Victims of slip and fall accidents are often unable to work. Compounding their financial strain is a lengthy litigation process while their attorney tries to prove that the property owner or their employees:
• should have identified the hazard that caused the slip and fall accident and repaired it, but failed to do so, or • caused the unsafe condition which resulted in the accident, and it was reasonably probable that an individual could have suffered injuries due to this dangerous condition.
To bridge the gap during a pending claim, this unfortunate victim might want to find out if he is eligible for lawsuit funding, a cash advance based on the anticipated proceeds of a future settlement or jury award.
The application process is free! We do not require a credit check and it doesn’t matter if he is still out of work. Once approved, the money can be available in as little as 24 hours. Lawsuit funding is not like a typical loan. If the case doesn’t result in a favorable settlement, the plaintiff is under no obligation to repay the cash advance.
At Lawsuit Financial, we understand that a lawsuit cash advance can make the difference between an early – and unfair –settlement and getting the full compensation you deserve.
