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.
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.
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.
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.
If you, or someone you know, has sustained orthopedic injuries as a result of another’s negligence or recklessness, such as through an automobile accident involving a truck, pedestrian, car or motorcycle or a personal injury accident like medical malpractice, wrongful death, slip and fall, you can pursue legal financing while your legal case is pursued by your attorney in court or against the insurance company. For example, a reckless or negligent defendant in an automobile accident could involve the driver being under the influence of alcohol or drugs and be convicted with a DUI. In such a case, liability and fault on the part of the defendant wrong-doing party would be easier to prove. “Orthopedic injury” is a broad-ranging term that concerns any number of problems associated with the musculoskeletal system; the part of your body concerned not only with muscles and bones, but also the joints, nerves and tendons woven between those parts.
Types of Orthopedic Injuries Include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Fractured joints
- Tears in the ACL
- Anything necessitating a hip replacement
- Spinal issues necessitating fusion
- Slipped/herniated spinal discs
Each of these conditions are serious and can entail many costly and invasive medical procedures. Most injuries involving sports or repetitive stress tend to fall under the auspice of an orthopedic specialist.
If you or someone you care for has been seriously harmed in an accident through another’s fault or negligence, contact High Rise Financial to see if you are eligible for legal funding. Rather than being an advance or loan, lawsuit financing is a sort of pre-settlement financing you can rely upon until your case reaches a settlement or successful recovery.
