A slip and fall accident can derail your life and cause extreme financial challenges. Pre settlement funding can be used to pay bills and any other expenses while you wait for your attorney to negotiate the most appropriate lawsuit settlement you deserve.


Slip and fall lawsuit loans are among the popular types of settlement financing. It’s probably related to the frequency of slip-and-fall accidents in the country. Nearly 20,000 deaths annually are due to slip and fall, according to the Center for Disease Control

This type of accident is among the most common causes of injuries in the United States. 

It can happen at work, on the sidewalk, and in both public and private properties. However, it is preventable.

If you’re suffering from pain and injury due to a slip and fall, you may file a claim against the property owner or occupier if they failed to practice reasonable care and maintenance of the land or premises under their control.

If you’re already in the middle of a lawsuit of this kind, congratulations on standing up for yourself and fighting for the compensation you deserve.

However, you may want to replenish your cash reserves with a slip and fall lawsuit loan if you want this to be sustainable. You can’t worry about where to source funds for living expenses and medical costs while waiting for your case to settle.

What Are Slip and Fall Accident Loans?

A grand total of more than $50 billion went to medical costs on falls in 2015, with Medicaid and Medicare shouldering 75%.

We’re not exaggerating when we say a personal injury caused by a slip-and-fall accident can drain your finances. With a lawsuit to think about, you’re probably pressed on all sides.

In your case, a slip and fall lawsuit loan can help.

Technically not a loan, this type of lawsuit financing focuses on providing slip and fall plaintiffs with money when they need it the most. It advances you a portion of your future settlement so you can appropriate it to present expenses.

Slip and fall lawsuit loans are non-recourse cash advances. Meaning, they are repaid only when you win or settle your case. Expect no notices of monthly fees and interests in between. 

TriMark offers low rates to ensure the majority of your settlement or compensation value remains intact.

In the event that you lose or fail to settle, you get to walk away freely with your advance. You are under no obligation to give back the amount to us.

We also make it quick and easy for you to apply and receive a slip and fall lawsuit loan. Just fill out this form or call us toll-free at 1-(877) 932-2628 to get started.

Who Are Eligible to Apply for Slip and Fall Settlement Funding?

These are the criteria for eligibility for slip and fall lawsuit loans:

  • You are represented by a contingent-fee attorney.
  • You must have sustained serious physical injuries or incurred grave financial losses.
  • You have established a clear liability against a sufficiently insured defendant.
  • Your anticipated value should net at least $150,000 (gross award less attorney fees, case costs, medical liens, etc.).
  • Your settlement check must be deposited to, and be distributed out of, your attorney’s trust account.

If you need post settlement funding instead, provide documentation showing that you will net a minimum of $60,000 after all deductions.

What Is A Slip and Fall Lawsuit?

“Slip and fall” refers to the personal injury claim for individuals who slipped or tripped on the property of another individual or company, which led to their injury. It is typically filed under the broader category of cases known as premises liability. Damages can be awarded to the plaintiff if the property owner or manager is found to have breached their duty of reasonable care.

slip-and-fall accident can happen due to different conditions. Slipping on ice and snow, for instance, can occur on sidewalks in front of homes and buildings. People can trip and fall indoors, such as on the rotting stairs of an apartment which the landlord noticed but failed to repair. Other hazards include wet floor, poor lighting, narrow stairs, and changes in the flooring.

A complaint can also arise even without the injured person actually falling. Say, someone tripped and twisted their ankle.

Negligence Claim

This case type relies on the claim of negligence on the side of the defendant. The plaintiff must prove that the property owner failed to practice due diligence in the care and maintenance o the land or premises. As such, it caused serious harm, injury, or death to others.

Still, the filing party may also be held partially accountable for the slip and fall and the resulting injury.

Most states practice the doctrine of comparative fault: pure and modified. Both acknowledge when the plaintiff is also responsible for their accident. But pure comparative negligence does not bar recovery even if you are found 99% at fault. Modified comparative negligence will award damages only if you’re 49% or less to blame for your injury. 

Meanwhile, only five states observe contributory negligence, which refuses to grant compensation to the plaintiff as long as they share the blame or liability for their accident.

If the liability falls under the property owner or manager, you have to distinguish their type when you need to file a slip-and-fall lawsuit.

Commercial Property

The statutory responsibility of property owners or managers toward injured parties involves ensuring the land or premises are safe for use or residence.

Here are the things you must show to claim commercial liability for a slip-and-fall injury:

  • The spill, worn or torn spot, or another dangerous condition was caused by the property owner, managers, or employees.
  • The property owner or occupier knew about the dangerous condition but did not take necessary steps to improve, fix, or warn customers about it.
  • The property owner or occupier should have known about the dangerous condition because a reasonable owner or occupier taking care of the property would have discovered, removed, or fixed it.

Residential Property

When it comes to rental properties, landlords can be held responsible for the slip-and-fall injuries sustained by tenants or third parties. The latter must show that the landlord was negligent through the following conditions:

  • The landlord had control over the condition that led to the accident.
  • The repair would not have been expensive or difficult.
  • The slip and fall was foreseeable, but the landlord ignored or did not fix the condition.
  • The landlord’s inaction resulted in the tenant’s slip-and-fall injury.

Government Property

You might recover your losses if you were injured on a property owned by the government at the local, state, or federal level. However, you may encounter obstacles such as stringent notice requirements and broad immunity provisions in proving the government’s liability for your injury.

Common Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents can result in broken bones, internal injuries, and sometimes death. Let’s find out some of their common causes and see if they can be prevented.

Wet Floor

It does not just happen in America but all over the world. Wet or slippery floors can make people slide, lose their balance, and land on the surface. Something as tame as spilled juice from a slice of tomato can cause a person’s downfall –.literally.

Even with marble finishing, a floor may have low traction and become a hazard. Such a thing happened to a woman, a former endurance driver, who was staying in a hotel when she slipped, twisted her ankle, and injured her left knee and back.

The incident left her stuck in a wheelchair, suffering from debilitating pain. She could no longer return to her executive job in the health care sector and active lifestyle. For medical costs and loss of business and future earnings, she sought nearly $5 million in damages.

Snow & Ice/Sidewalks

Depending on the area or country, homeowners may be held responsible for snow and ice removal on the sidewalk surrounding their property. In general, this isn’t required in the United States. 

However, ice may accumulate on the roof or a sloping driveway. When this melts and drops on the ground where it refreezes and causes pedestrians to slip and fall, the property owner may be liable for the harm or injury they may sustain.

As for businesses, some courts may impose liability for injuries on a sidewalk where customers pass through to enter or leave the store, restaurant, and the like. In connection, any hazards that appear on private walkways may also be grounds for negligence.

Food Left on the Floor

Food debris on supermarket floors may be another common cause for slip-and-fall accidents. Personal injuries suffered here may come from two sides: that of the customer or that of the employee. 

Since “slip and fall” is under the bigger umbrella of premises liability, the property owner has the duty to keep the store safe from potential dangers. Popular supermarket chains, like Costco and Wal-Mart, have been involved in slip-and-fall lawsuits that are due to liquids or substances spilled on the floor. 

In some cases, the plaintiff loses because there’s enough evidence to show the store has observed proper and timely inspection of its floors. In others, the defendant is proven negligent. Other factors may also contribute to the accident, such as the problematic aisle design of Wal-Mart’s self-shopping service, which was found in Lanier v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.

Surveillance footage showed that employees walked past a spill on the floor several minutes before a customer fell and sustained injuries, the California Court of Appeal for the Fourth District, Division One said in a recent case. In Hassaine v. Club Demonstration Services, Inc., a customer – the plaintiff in this case – was shopping at Costco Wholesale Warehouse Corporation’s Carmel Mountain Ranch location in San Diego. She slipped on a slippery substance on the floor of the aisle, fell flat on her back, and sustained injuries. The plaintiff sought compensatory damages from Costco and San Diego-based Club Demonstration Services (CDS), the independent contractor that operated sample tables of food and non-food merchandise within Costco’s warehouses, based on negligence and premises liability.

They bear a direct legal liability for anything that goes wrong on their property, as long as the person who was affected had a legal right to be there.

Supermarkets are the most frequented stores by the average American. As a result, injuries caused by store negligence are not uncommon, but neither are illnesses. Common supermarket accidents often occur from damaged grocery carts, slippery floors, and floor mats. Malfunctioning automatic sliding doors, items falling from shelves, tripping over obstructions on floors, and uneven pavements or tar surfaces in parking lots are also culprits for frequent accidents. Finally, spoiled or tainted foods can also cause food poisoning. There are countless regulations in the U.S. for ensuring food safety in establishments that sell food, including grocery stores. Supermarket managers and employees must also ensure customers are safe from injuries by removing potential hazards. Premises liability laws apply to supermarkets with a duty of care, ensuring their … Read more
Are slip and fall cases hard to win? Slip and fall cases have a reputation of being hard to win because the injured person has to prove that the defendant: Owed them a duty of care (negligence) or similar legal obligation (premises liability); Acted in a way that breached that duty or obligation; and That breach caused the injured person’s injury/loss/damage. If any of these elements are missing, the injured person will not win in a court of law. However, many personal injury cases are settled before they ever make it to the courtroom. If the facts of the case show that the defendant’s negligence caused the plaintiff’s injuries, the plaintiff has a very strong case whether in settlement negotiations or in court. … Read more
OSHA requires slip, trip and fall hazards to be quickly identified and addressed and for employers to conduct regular and periodic inspections and maintenance. With so much attention placed lately on Covid-19 vaccines, testing and prevention measures, it is easy to slip and forget the other common threats that put employees in danger. Now, however, with the cooler temperatures and changing colors in some parts of the county, we have a brisk reminder of the importance of thinking beyond the pandemic and refreshing our training programs to teach employees how to avoid slips, trips and falls in the workplace. In addition to the slippery and icy surfaces outside our doors, manufacturers should also pay attention to dangerous conditions inside their facilities and factor that into their employee safety training programs.

This winter, after I lost my footing and shattered my arm on an icy sidewalk, I knew I faced a grueling physical recovery.

My mishap happened in front of someone's house on a January Minneapolis evening, as I was walking my twelve-year-old dog.

I lost about two months of work and a major gig, and I’m still … Read more
“Slip and fall” cases represent the bread-and-butter of the “premises liability” tort – a personal injury genre which supports an entire industry of attorneys, insurance agents, physical therapists and related professionals. The tort is among the most common civil actions in the United States, fueled by millions of “slip, trip or fall” injuries that take place all over the country each year.

Two categories … Read more
Slip and fall, or trip and fall accidents, a type of premises liability case, can be devastating, both physically and financially. If you've recently been involved in a slip and fall accident and you're thinking of filing a personal injury claim, you're probably wondering what you'll have to do to win. Slip and fall cases are challenging because you have to prove three things, all of which are critical.

Nursing homes are legally liable when one of their residents is injured in a slip and fall, but these cases also differ from other slip and fall lawsuits. Seniors are more likely to fall and more likely to suffer serious injuries due to their age and health conditions, and often the cause is not related to their surroundings. A fall in a managed care facility can happen the way these accidents typically take place, such as a person slipping on uneven carpet or on a wet floor, but that is often not the case. Instead, when an elderly person falls in a nursing home, it is typically because they weren’t adequately supervised. Here are more reasons a nursing home may be liable:… Read more

How does one take action if they have been involved in a slip and fall accident? Gary tells us and pinpoints the importance of being prepared with sufficient proof. What are the first steps taken in a slip and fall case? Commonplace premises liability cases are varied.

How can we ensure that the airport environment is always safe and accidents that could result in personal injury claims and lawsuits are prevented? Steve Howards, Content Marketing Manager at Herrig & Vogt, provides us with the answer. Did you know that more people get injured at an airport than on the aircraft? For example, according to the Flight Safety Foundation, around 27,000 ramp accidents occur every year, costing at least $10 billion annually. This is not at all surprising considered how many activities happen inside an airport – many passengers are in a hurry, trying to get through security, managing multiple languages, navigating an unfamiliar environment, looking after their small children, reading signs or listening to announcements. They’re distracted and often fail to notice hazards (e.g., a spill on the floor) that could cause injuries…. Read more
