If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, you may think it was just bad luck, that you were in the wrong place at the wrong time, or that your own clumsiness is to blame. But chances are, something could – and should—have been done to prevent the accident. This is because property owners and landlords are legally obligated to keep you safe while you are on the premises. Specifically, they must adhere to certain safety standards to do so, or face the possibility of costly lawsuits.
If you hired an attorney and filed a slip and fall lawsuit, you may also face the possibility of a lengthy settlement process. Unfortunately, a case that drags on can not only exacerbate your anxiety, but also create financial stress for you and your family. If you’re struggling to pay your bills while your slip and fall lawsuit is pending, you may qualify for pre-settlement funding that provides financial relief and peace of mind.

Oasis provides pre-settlement funding, also known as consumer litigation funding, to its customers through different products depending on their state of residence or cause of action. Many consumers will be provided pre-settlement funding in the form of a purchase agreement, which assigns a portion of the pending proceeds from their legal claim. Other consumers, such as those in CO, IL, MN, MO, SC, WI and some OK residents, will be offered a funding in the form of a pre-settlement loan, sometimes referred to as a lawsuit loan. These transactions have important differences, therefore, consumers should carefully review and be aware of the type of transaction that is offered to them by any funding company.
