Slip and fall accidents generally occur when people fall and injure themselves on someone else’s property as a result of dangerous or hazardous conditions. If the accident is in any way attributable to the owner of a premises, the injured party may be able to sue for damages.

This recent slip and fall lawsuit was filed after all attempts to negotiate a personal injury settlement failed.

Head-on collisions often cause death because both cars hit with extreme opposing force. These accidents are often due to miscalculating the speed and distance of the oncoming car or veering into an oncoming lane due to speeding, reckless driving, distractions, or drunk driving.

Witnesses told police the driver of a white Yukon had been weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed prior to a head-on crash that killed a 7-year-old boy and a 25-year-old woman.

The crash occurred when a white SUV drifted into the lane of a Mazda, striking it and forcing the Mazda into a spin before it was struck by an oncoming Dodge Durango. Police said neither driver had a chance to avoid the impact.

Nursing home residents are typically older and in poorer health than seniors citizens who live on their own or with loved ones. They are also typically more prone to falling. However, a well-run and fully staffed and trained nursing home should be able to prevent the majority of these incidents. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect is still an all too common problem. When issues of neglect such as falls occur, residents can suffer physically and mentally as a result. If a loved one has been injured because of nursing home negligence and/or abuse, victims and their families need an experienced nursing home abuse attorney by their side.

A family member is suing a nursing facility, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence to his relative.

The complaint, filed on November 16, alleges that the nursing home failed to implement a care plan to properly address the resident’s fall risk. Improper care led to the patient’s fall, resulting in a right hip fracture and ultimately deterioration of his health.

When an injury occurs as a result of medical negligence, the costs can be exorbitant including medical bills, long-term care, even funeral and burial expenses and emotional damages. It may also result in the loss of earnings. For many victims, filing a medical malpractice lawsuit can produce financial compensation for damages incurred. Although no money can replace a permanently impaired quality of life, it can provide some help for patients whose health problems were heightened due to the mistake. It also can offer some sense of justice and closure to bereaved loved ones.

While a fair settlement is preferred over the uncertainty of a jury verdict, insurance companies often make low settlement offers in hopes that the plaintiffs will be struggling financially and accept less than deserved. Plaintiffs don’t have to succumb to this tactic. While a medical malpractice attorney helps those victims fight for their rights to a fair settlement or just verdict, Lawsuit Financial can help them remain financial stable until fair compensation is received.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance, often obtained in less than 48 hours, to pay immediate bills and expenses. Unlike a bank loan, a funding decision is based on case strength, not credit or employment status. There are no monthly payments; Lawsuit Financial is repaid only when the case successfully settles. If the plaintiff doesn’t recover compensation in the case, we will completely excuse the obligation to repay the advance.
