Every business and property owner has a responsibility to maintain their premises so visitors are safe from harm. If you sustain a slip and fall injury on premises owned by someone else, you have the legal right to file a lawsuit for damages. Unfortunately, it can be a long wait before a settlement is reached. Lawsuit funding is designed to help plaintiffs in need of emergency cash to get them through to the litigation process.
A woman claims she slipped, fell, and was subsequently injured due to a slick floor at a New Orleans grocery store.
According to the suit, the incident occurred due to a leaking drink cooler machine. A large puddle formed, and the woman slipped and fell. The defendant is accused of negligence through failing to ensure that the machines were in working order, failing to clean up the water, and failing to warn of the danger.
