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.

If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident or auto accident, slip and fall, dog bite attack, construction accidents, wrongful death cases, medical malpractice or by a defective medical product, contact High Rise Financial to qualify for access to lawsuit funding.

When the injuries are serious and the medical bills pile up, cash funding can make all the difference. You can continue to obtain medical treatment and necessary surgeries, pay for your living expenses and bills all while your attorney continues to prosecute your case on your behalf for the best possible financial settlement.

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.

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.

American Burn Association Statistics Regarding Burn Injury Accidents and its Prevalence

Burn injuries are unfortunately quite common and result from accidents where negligence may have been involved. It is one of the leading causes of wrongful death and unintentional injury in the United States today.

According to the American Burn Association, between 2011 and 2015, close to 500,000 people were seen for burn injuries in emergency departments across the US. One person dies from a fire approximately every two and a half hours while the odds of an American civilian dying from fire exposure or contact with smoke or flames are 1 in 1,498. The most common causes of such fire and burn injuries include contact with a fire or flame, scalds, chemical burns, electrical burns, and thermal burns. 43% of burn injuries are caused by a fire or flame.

According to the statistics taken over the course of over a decade from 2005 to 2014, males seem to suffer from burn injuries at a higher rate than their female counterparts. These injuries are predominantly suffered in the home at 73% while the workplace accounts for 8%. Click here to learn more about the American Burn Association’s findings regarding these incidents.

At High Rise Financial, we work hard to help victims of burn injury accidents recover their health and well being back while their legal case is pending and being handled by their attorney. We provide cash funding which is like a lawsuit loan or cash advance, but unlike a cash loan or advance it does not need to be paid back unless your case is successful and there is some recovery. The legal lawsuit funding is aimed at helping victims of personal injury accidents recover from their injuries and maintain their livelihood until they receive a settlement for their case.

How Wrongful Death Actions Work

The loss of a loved one is always devastating, but it may be even harder to deal with when it is a preventable death that was caused by the negligence or direct action of an entity or another person. A family member’s death might also impose a significant financial burden upon the survivors. Even if a family is aware they might be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Los Angeles or elsewhere in California, they may not have the cash up front to afford to do so. However, they may be able to obtain legal funding for their wrongful death claim from High Rise Financial, commonly referred to as a lawsuit loan or cash advance.

What Types of Deaths Lead to Wrongful Death Lawsuits?

If a person dies because of a faulty product or the actions of another person, it may be possible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Car accidents, plane crashes and accidents at work could all be reasons to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Medical malpractice could also result in a wrongful death lawsuit. Finally, if one person kills another, that person could be sued for wrongful death. For a lawsuit to be successful, it is necessary to prove that the actions or negligence of the other person or party caused the death.

Restrictions in Wrongful Death Lawsuits

It is necessary for a wrongful death lawsuit to be timely filed and to be filed by the right person or party. The amount of time a person has to file a lawsuit varies according to the specific situation. For example, there is a general two-year limit in California, but for medical malpractice and some other types of cases, it could be less. People who are not yet prepared to file a lawsuit may still want to consult an attorney to find out how much time they have.

The person may also want to talk to the attorney about who may file the lawsuit. In general, a person’s spouse or children or others who were dependents can file a claim, but there may be other elements to consider as well.

Among the damages that may be sought in a wrongful death lawsuit are funeral costs, medical expenses, loss of companionship and loss of income from the person who has died. In addition to consulting an attorney about the specifics of the case, you can apply to see if you or a loved one qualifies for legal cash funding to pursue your wrongful death action or legal case.

Applying is easy; you can call us at  866-407-6404 to speak with a funding specialist about the facts of your case or apply online.

Pre-Settlement Cash Funding for Burn Injury Victims

Pre-settlement cash funding is now available to burn injury victims nationwide through High Rise Financial for their pending and ongoing lawsuit. This type of legal funding is not a typical cash advance or  loan as there is no obligation for our clients to reimburse us should they lose their lawsuit.

Burns are assessed by degrees to describe their severity. The worst cases, fourth, fifth and sixth degree burns, may result in amputation or cause permanent damage. In the third degree, a skin graft may repair some damage although this type of burn does involve charred skin. Second-degree burns are less serious, although they still do damage to the deeper layers of skin including the dermis and the deep or reticular dermis, but do cause blisters. In a first-degree burn, although there may be pain, only the epidermis (the first layer of skin) is affected and may have a white film over it or be red in color.

There are a number of different types of burns. People may be most familiar with a heat burn, which often occurs when coming into contact with hot foods or liquids such as cooking oil. Overexposure to UV light in a tanning bed can cause also cause skin burns. A friction burn results in chafing of the skin due to an abrasion. Cleaning solutions, and other substances that require safety protection for use, can cause chemical burns.

People who are not at fault in serious burn accidents and are involved in a lawsuit should contact High Rise Financial today to find out if they are eligible to receive cash while their legal case is in progress. The application is available online and extremely simple to complete. Our approval process is fast and you could be approved for funding in as little as 24 hours after the submission of your application!
