A slip and fall accident doesn’t always sound as dangerous and problematic as the injuries that come with them. In many cases, the fall results in some very serious injuries that will need medical attention.
Some of the types of physical damage that someone may incur during a slip and fall accident include injuries to the spine, broken bones, bruising and soft tissue damage, internal injuries, and even post traumatic stress. While these types of injuries may be different, they all have one thing in common; they require medical attention.
What Causes Slip and Fall Injuries?
There are an unlimited number of ways someone could be injured from a slip and fall accident. In some instances, the negligence may be on the part of the person who fell, but that’s not always the case.
One of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents is a failure of the owner to properly maintain the premise. Whether a private home, office complex, or retail establishment, the owner needs provide safe conditions for anyone who enters the premise. Failure to do so may cause unsafe conditions that can lead to serious falls and other injuries.
Slip and fall accidents can also be the result of a poorly constructed building. If there is a construction or design flaw in the building, often times they are not apparent until someone has an accident.
Improper lighting can also lead to a slip and fall accident. Property owners may be liable if poor lighting causes someone to slip and fall on their property.
Wet surfaces, broken areas in pavement and on sidewalks, and frayed or improperly installed carpet can cause a slip and fall accident as well.
If you’ve suffered from a slip and fall accident and believe it is due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to file a slip and fall lawsuit for damages. It is important to speak to an attorney who can evaluate your case and discuss your options.
Proving negligence in a slip and fall accident is, sometimes, more difficult than it might otherwise seem. Unfortunately, business owners and their insurance companies work every angle to avoid paying and “buy” as much time as possible; a lawsuit is almost always required and then the insurance company will delay again. Before becoming discouraged about your financial situation, call Lawsuit Financial to learn about our litigation funding services and how we might help you.
Lawsuit funding is a service that provides some financial relief to plaintiffs faced with financial difficulties. Assistance comes in the form of a lawsuit cash advance, money that is advanced in anticipation of a potential settlement or verdict. It should be used carefully, for serious needs, like mortgage or rent payments, car payments or medical expenses. A “lawsuit loan” would help pay medical expenses right away and take care of other important bills like the mortgage and other financial commitments.
Legal funding is provided based on the merits of your case, through information provided by your attorney. Whether you have good or bad credit, whether or not you have a job, whether you own a home or not, none of this matters. All that Lawsuit Financial cares about is whether you have a pending lawsuit being handled by a competent lawyer. If you win the case, you will pay us our principal and profit; if you lose your case, our money is free; keep it with our compliments.
Applying for litigation funding is quick and easy and can be done online or on the phone. Legal finance, if approved, will arrive within 24-48 hours. Lawsuit funding would allow the plaintiff to wait for justice and not take too little compensation too soon in the legal process.
