A woman was volunteering as an usher at a Houston theatre when she fell from the stairs area, suffering serious injuries. She has filed a lawsuit against the theatre group managers, alleging negligence for failing to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition, failing to warn employees, volunteers, and theatre-goers of the dangerous condition, and failing to inspect the premises for any dangerous condition that existed. The lawsuit seeks a trial by jury.
Damages in slip and fall accidents are based on the extent of the actual injuries and can include medical expenses, pain and suffering, or mental anguish. Slip and fall cases fall under premise liability with most cases settling out of court. Other times, victims find themselves in the throes of a length legal battles and struggling to pay the bills. This problem can be aggravated by the length of time it takes to receive a settlement.
When premise liability plaintiffs are left without the financial means to pay bills and take care of their families, litigation funding can help bridge the gap while the case resolves in court.
The first step is to complete a one-page request for funding application online or over the phone. The application is free and there are no credit checks, employment verification, or hidden fees. If your case appears strong, we will award a cash advance based on the anticipated proceeds of the future settlement or jury award. This is often done within 24 – 48 hours of receiving an application for funding. Additionally, litigation funding is absolutely risk-free. If you don’t settle or collect damages on your lawsuit, you are under no obligation to repay the cash advanced. What better way is there to get the peace of mind you deserve in your time of need?
