Helping Plaintiffs Find Their Footing After Being Injured in a FallApril 14, 2016
“Don” (not a real person) loved his job, despite the dangers. He worked in a distribution warehouse for a food company, and all of the usual dangers — heavy machinery, perilous towers of products, the strain of moving thousands of pounds of food everyday — were exacerbated by Don’s assignment in the frozen warehouse.
Inside the freezer section of the warehouse, which was kept at a frigid zero degrees, Don and his coworkers moved the heavy pallets of frozen food products his company shipped to institutions all over the country. In addition to the usual hazards of a warehouse workplace, Don and the other workers in the freezer faced ice on the floor and icicles in their beards. Still, despite the harsh conditions and the aches, pains, and sniffles it caused, Don was a well-respected and efficient worker.
That all changed in an instant, one morning. Don lost his footing and fell, and a nearby stack of packages fell of top of him. The impact shredded the ligaments in his left shoulder, and ruptured two discs in his spine. The fall also tore a ligament in his knee. Don suffered a terrible on-the-job accident, and it would be many months and several surgeries before Don could work again.
Don filed for workman’s compensation, and, at the advice of a personal injury attorney, pursued legal action in court. As that case works its way through the proper channels, his medical and utility bills — not to mention food and rent costs — pile up. His lawyer suggested he seek pre-settlement funding to help defray his costs before he can begin to collect on a judgment in the personal injury case.
