Don’t Let a Wet Floor Trip Up Your PlansMay 4, 2017
“Cooper” (not a real person) had been driving since sunrise to get to his brother’s house to celebrate Thanksgiving. It was now past 7 in the evening and he had just a couple hours to go to complete his long journey.
Cooper stopped at a gas station to fill up his tank and get a coffee to provide him with an extra boost of energy. He also went to the restroom for what he hoped would be the last time before he reached his destination. Just as he stepped into the small room, he slipped on a wet patch of tile. He came crashing down, hitting his head so hard that he was briefly knocked unconscious.
Cooper awoke to the station attendant looking over him, fretting as he talked into a cell phone. Dizzy and disoriented, Cooper had no choice but to wait until the ambulance arrived. He spent two days in the hospital – enough to ruin his holiday weekend – but the lingering effects of his concussion dragged on for months. He often suffered blurry vision and light sensitivity, making it hard for him to simply sit in front of a computer and work for long periods of time.
After consulting a personal injury attorney, he filed a lawsuit against the gas station’s owner. It soon became clear, however, that any justice in court would be a long time away. Frustrated by his condition and unable to work full-time, Cooper didn’t think he could afford to hang on through a long legal battle. His lawyer suggested he contact USClaims to secure pre-settlement funding to pay his bills while his case proceeded.
At USClaims, we don’t offer litigation loans or litigation financing; we offer pre-settlement funding. We purchase a portion of the proceeds of an anticipated court settlement or judgment. That means injured people and their families will never be at financial risk of having to pay back a high-cost loan if their civil suit is unsuccessful. USClaims gets paid only if the plaintiff wins the case or reaches a settlement.
If you’re having trouble meeting your expenses while waiting for a legal settlement or a judgment related to a slip-and-fall accident, call USClaims today at 1-877-USCLAIMS.
