State and federal laws, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Act, require employers to provide a safe working environment for their employees. If an on-the-job injury does occur, workers are typically barred from suing their employer directly. Instead, workers’ compensation insurance covers the employee’s medical and rehabilitation expenses along with at least a portion of any lost wages. Even if a workers’ compensation claim is approved quickly, the money is not usually enough to alleviate the full financial impact of a workplace injury. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, the employee may have a personal injury claim against a manufacturer of a piece of unsafe equipment or a person or company responsible for causing the accident. Regardless of the circumstances, most injured workers need some sort of financial assistance as they recover from their injuries. High Rise Financial is a leading lawsuit financing company dedicated to helping injured workers throughout all of California.
What to Do Following a Workplace Injury
Anyone injured on the job should immediately inform their immediate supervisor and file an incident report detailing the accident and the injuries received. It is essential to get statements from any witnesses to help bolster any worker’s compensation or personal injury claim. Victims should also retain copies of all medical records and document their injuries and the scene with pictures.
How High Rise Financial Can Help
Workers’ compensation and personal injury claims for on-the-job injuries can be expensive, drawn-out affairs. Most workers do not have enough of a financial safety net in place to tide them over until the workers’ compensation claim is approved or their personal injury case is settled. Pre-settlement legal funding is a way for injured workers to receive immediate cash while pursuing their other legal options.
Legal Financing Is Risk-Free
Unlike other companies that provide settlement funding, High Rise Financial does not charge exorbitant application fees or require outrageous monthly payments. In fact, the money does not have to be repaid until the client recovers. If the client does not recover, they do not owe High Rise anything. Since the money is not a loan or cash advance, there is no credit check required. The approval process only takes a couple of minutes, and most clients receive their cash in as little as 24 hours.
