Pedestrians Injured on the Road & Crosswalk

Pedestrians face many risks every time they cross the road, traffic signal or crosswalk. They face risk from unsafe or careless drivers in a rush, or possibly under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Hasty drivers cause needless deaths and severe injuries to unsuspecting pedestrians every day.

Pedestrians typically have the right of way. That is to say he or she wasn’t crossing a major intersection illegally when the cars and traffic faced a green light. Pedestrians just like drivers must be extra careful or cautious. Often times, the accident was the fault of the driver. Liability must be proved.

If you were a victim of a car accident as a pedestrian, you may have a legal claim. Be sure to consult with your attorney. If you already have an ongoing legal claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver, you may also qualify for lawsuit funding. High Rise Financial provides our clients with quality care and cash before your lawsuit settles. The lawsuit “loan” must be repaid when your case settles or if you win a recovery. Unlike a lawsuit loan, however, the cash advanced does not need to be repaid to us if you lose your claim or there is no monetary settlement. Contact High Rise Financial to find out more and see if you can qualify. The application is short and easy and our team of underwriters can review your file within 24 hours.

The Dangers of Trucking Accident Collisions

Automobile accidents and motor vehicle collisions are dangerous and can pose grave threats to one’s health, both physically and emotionally. The trauma upon impact can be fatal. This is especially true in accidents involving big rigs and large trucks. The weight and force of impact can be much greater than between two small compact cars.

In fact, accidents involving big trucks and rigs have a higher probability of flipping the other car or causing immediate damage and harm. Individual drivers and passengers have been known to sustain injuries ranging from burns, broken bones, amputation, paralysis, spinal cord damage and more. In the worst of cases, passengers and drivers of both vehicles may have been killed upon impact, giving rise to a potential wrongful death claim.

If you or a loved one were impacted in such a tragic accident and have an ongoing legal claim with an attorney, and need access to cash legal funding to recover and survive, contact High Rise Financial today. We provide funding and cash resources to our clients. We offer immediate review and analysis of your case to let you know if you qualify for pre-settlement lawsuit funding which is like a lawsuit loan but does not need to be repaid if the case loses.

Types of Injuries Covered by Cash Funding

High Rise Financial provides cash funding for your lawsuit or legal case which involves personal injuries such as brain injuries, broken bones, amputations, paralysis, burn injuries, spinal cord damage, back pain and more. Depending on the circumstance and scenario of your personal injury accident, and liability against the at-fault defendant, you may be eligible for cash pre-settlement funding. Such legal funding is similar to a lawsuit loan but it is distinct in that the cash advanced need only be repaid if your case settles and if you are successful.

Who Benefits from Legal Funding?

Injuries Caused by Car Accidents

In car accidents, both drivers and passengers can be heavily impacted. Because of the weight of the vehicles themselves and the force of impact, depending on the type of car crash and how it occurred, the injuries individuals sustain can be life-threatening and debilitating.

In car accidents with big trucks and rigs, car flips may occur, fires may start and as a result bones can break and burn injuries may occur. In an automobile accident with a motorcyclist who can potentially be thrown off his or her vehicle, the injuries can be even more severe without the extra layer of protection from a windshield that a car may provide. Pedestrians are even less safe when they are in contact with a moving vehicle, motorcycle or truck. If a pedestrian is hit by a bus or car or any other vehicle, they are typically thrown into the air or run over. Those injuries can be devastating and permanent. Unfortunately, such accidents are not rare but are a common occurrence.

At High Rise Financial, we seek to offer assistance to injured victims of car and other vehicular accidents to allow such victims to obtain the necessary medical treatment to survive and recover. Many times the injuries are so severe that they cannot fully recover to their condition pre-accident. If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident and have an ongoing legal case against the other party, you may qualify for cash for your lawsuit. Contact High Rise Financial to learn more.

How To Qualify for Lawsuit Funding

The types of cases that allow plaintiffs to receive cash before their case or claim settles with the liable third-party include automobile accidents, personal injury incidents and injuries caused by defective or harmful medical devices.

Many scenarios, accidents and circumstances can qualify for the above. Certain factors are taken into consideration by High Rise Financial and our team of underwriters. When reviewing and evaluating your case, we will ask you if you are represented by an attorney or law firm. You must have a ongoing claim or case or be pursuing such a claim actively against the insurance company. We also review the facts of the accident and there is a liability analysis. For example, if a police report states that the other party is 100% at fault for the incident and you are 0% at fault, this will increase your chances of qualifying and receiving pre-settlement lawsuit funding.

Whether you were an insured driver at the time of the accident and whether the at-fault party has insurance are also taken into consideration. Overall, our team at High Rise Financial works directly with your attorney to obtain this information when making an assessment for legal funding for your case. Contact us today to find out whether your claim can get you the cash you urgently need.

Uber Accidents on the Rise

If you or a loved one, family member or friend were injured in an automobile accident with an Uber vehicle, your case may qualify for cash legal funding pre-settlement. If you were a passenger in an Uber driver’s vehicle and were injured or sustained damages and have an ongoing legal case or are pursuing a claim, you should consider cash funding for your lawsuit. Another scenario may involve you being a passenger or driver of the second vehicle and the Uber driver causing the accident as the driver of the first vehicle. Various scenarios may occur. The only requirement is that the evidence show that the other party is liable and caused the accident. In fact, many different auto accidents can occur and are not limited to auto vs. auto.

A car driven by an Uber driver can crash with a motorcyclist, pedestrian, truck driver and more. If you were injured in such an accident, you may be entitled to recovery for your pain and suffering and medical treatments. These are typically referred to by lawyers as general damages and special damages, respectively. Also, depending on the circumstances and the extent of your injuries, you may also have other potential claims for lost income or lost wages as well as loss of consortium if the accident so gravely affected you to affect your marriage or marital relations.

Sometimes referred to as a “lawsuit loan,” cash funding provided by High Rise Financial must only be repaid if your case is successful and there is a monetary settlement. This condition allows plaintiffs who are injured to benefit from the leverage their case holds against the liable defendant third-party.

The Six Most Common Types of Auto Accidents

Across California and the United States, various types of automobile accidents occur on a daily basis. Whether it is an injured motorcyclist who finds himself making a claim against a drunk driver, a trucking or trailer accident gone wrong, or a car accident with many injured passengers, the availability of pre-settlement legal cash funding is a valuable resource in your legal case. High Rise Financial offers victims of bicycle accidents, boat accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck, car, ride sharing accidents like Uber and Lyft with access to what is similar to a lawsuit cash loan or advance of cash. In the legal world, we call this pre-settlement legal funding. In some circumstances, where your case has already settled against the defendant’s insurance company, you may be entitled to post-settlement legal funding as well if the insurance company is delaying in payment.

The beauty of cash funding for your lawsuit is that it affords you the financial stability and security while your case is pending with your attorney and the defendant. If your case is in litigation and tied up in court for a long time, this may be a very necessary resource based on your financial circumstance and bodily injury as a result of the accident. Many of our clients have lost the ability to work either temporarily or permanently as a result of their car or auto accident. These are all important factors to consider when making a determination of accepting an insurance company’s initial offer for your case. If you have received significant medical treatment or have a serious bodily injury that resulted from a third-party’s negligence or reckless behavior, your case can be strengthened.

Contact one of our representatives for assistance and apply for cash funding for your lawsuit today to see if your legal case qualifies.

Can I Sue for Pain and Suffering?

A victim of any personal injury accident can generally sue for pain and suffering money damages. Of course, the amount that will be considered or awarded is directly dependent on the severity of their injuries and the significant of the incident. Someone that trips and scrapes their knee does not have the same allocation for pain and suffering as someone who suffered third degree burns as a result of a defective product which would fall under product liability.

These distinctions are key. Almost every type of case qualifies for pain and suffering, with one exception: that is worker’s compensation claims. If you were injured in an accident while at work for your employer- then you cannot sue your employer for pain, suffering or disability.

What types of Accidents and Injuries Qualify for Pain and Suffering Damages?

Car accidents, medical malpractice cases, pedestrian accidents, slip and falls, product liability, dog bites, construction accidents, nursing home negligence, defective medical devices and other similar cases qualifies for pain and suffering damages. Injuries that would have a high dollar or monetary value on it for pain and suffering would probably include burn injuries, orthopedic injuries, spinal cord injuries or severe injuries to the brain, any type of injury requiring surgery to recover, as well as broken bones and fractures, amputations, and paralysis (paraplegia and quadraplegia).

Minor or less severe injuries would still warrant some compensation for pain and suffering- because even if you did not fall through a skylight on a construction job- you still had some suffering as a result of that rear-ended car accident (even with minor property damage). Leave it to your attorney to fight for you to obtain as much of a recovery as possible for your injuries, treatment and the impact of the accident on your life and well-being.

Good Advice to Follow after a Car Accident that was NOT your Fault

Here are some tips (non-legal) but helpful when navigating your options while pursuing a claim for your car accident case against the negligent party or other driver’s insurance company:

  • Seek immediate medical attention especially if you have sustained or suffered serious injuries. Even minor injuries should be looked at by a professional medical provider or doctor. When the injuries are more severe, sometimes an ambulance must be called and a visit to the emergency room is warranted.
  • If you or a loved one sustained significant injury for example in a DUI automobile case where the other driver was under the influence, or if your car was totalled, or if something more disastrous resulted, you may want to contact an attorney to represent you in your legal case.
  • Once your attorney has filed a claim against the other party’s insurance company (assuming he or she had valid and proper insurance coverage), then the hard work begins on your case.
  • After progress is made, if you are in need of a lawsuit loan or cash advance, you may be interested in legal lawsuit funding which is available through us at High Rise Financial. The process is simple. Your attorney would help facilitate the information and collection of facts necessary for our team to determine whether your case qualifies for settlement funding. The only requirement is that you have an attorney or law firm represent you in your claim.
  • Once our team makes an evaluation, you will be informed as to whether you qualify for pre-settlement cash funding or post-settlement funding. Post-settlement funding would benefit you if for example you are in urgent need of money, your case has settled but there are delays in receiving the payment from the insurance company.
