The most common cause for a personal injury case is a slip & fall. If you have been injured due to a fall, the first thing to do, after seeking medical attention, is to contact a personal injury attorney. It is vital to in order to be fully compensated for your injury to have the guidance of a well versed attorney who will be able to correctly steer you through your recovery. Receiving immediate medical attention for your injuries cannot be understated for many reasons. Insurers and at-fault parties will surely try to argue some or all of your injuries are not attributed to your accident without an examination immediately following the incident identifying your injuries and relating them to the accident. Also, it is important not to attempt to negotiate your claim without the guidance of an attorney. A good personal injury attorney will know the full scope of the legal rights and entitlements you are due and fight for your full compensation. Once you have retained an attorney and begin to treat, Bridgeway can speak with your attorney and review your case for immediate cash assistance. Funding can be provided within 24-48 hours from when you apply with us.
A dangerous fall can occur at any time and most people are not prepared to miss long periods of work while treating for the injuries or even pay out-of-pocket medical expenses. A typical case can take 6-18 months before you receive a settlement for your injuries and in that time most people cannot work or are recommended not to work because it will negatively affect their claim. A no-risk, pre-settlement advance or “lawsuit loan” provides the ability for injured parties to pay rent, mortgage, groceries, tuition, car payment and much more while your attorney fights for your full compensation.
