Serious injuries can mean a victim is temporarily or permanently unable to work, maybe even disfigured for life. If the injured party has retained a personal injury attorney and filed a lawsuit, he may wish to seek lawsuit funding to pay the bills while waiting for a fair settlement.
A Texas man has filed a lawsuit against a cleaning company and one of its employees, alleging their negligence in maintaining a safe work environment led to his injuries.
In April 2015, the plaintiff was supervising four other workers inside a reactor within a refinery when there was a wash down, involving water and other fluids. Shortly thereafter, the plaintiff said he began experiencing extreme pain and discomfort in his left eye. The lawsuit states that as a result of the defendants failure to provide a warning that a wash down was about to occur, the plaintiff suffered physical impairment, medical expenses, and lost wages.
The plaintiff seeks a trial by jury and compensation up to $1 million.
Most industrial accidents are dealt with under the auspices of workers’ compensation law. That’s the general rule of thumb, but there are exceptions. One of those is if the accident was due to negligence, as alleged in this case.
A personal injury lawsuit resulting from an industrial accident is a way to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A lawsuit is also a means to hold a business accountable for negligence.
In cases like this, filing a lawsuit and waiting out the litigation process can take years. If the injured plaintiff is facing cash flow problems, making it difficult to pay the bills, lawsuit funding may be an option.
Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance based solely on the merits of the lawsuit. Therefore, credit standing and employment status do not matter. Additionally, there are no payments until the case settles. In the event the funded plaintiff loses the case, the repayment is excused.
The application process is quick and easy. If the applicant is approved, the lawsuit cash advance can be available within 24 – 48 hours. The money can be used for whatever the funded client chooses, although it is typically used to pay medical expenses, household bills, mortgage, and other immediate and necessary expenses.
