Let’s say you are out picking up your turkey or some last-minute items for your Thanksgiving Day meal, or you are taking advantage of the deals in the early-morning hours of Black Friday. You are enjoying the weather, taking in the sights, smells and atmosphere that come with the start of the holiday season. You are looking forward to spending time with your loved ones, and the farthest thing from your mind is the risk of being injured in an accident where someone else is to blame.

Then, it happens. All of a sudden, you are not worried about getting your turkey in the oven or scoring one last Black Friday deal. At that point, you are worried about your health and wondering how you are going to cover the costs of your accident-related injuries. Unfortunately, this tragic scenario is all too common, as people all over the country are forced each year to cope with holiday season injuries.

Causes and Consequences of Holiday Season Injuries

During Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the holiday season in general, the risks of many types of accidents increase as more and more people get out on the roads. Parking lots become more crowded, increasing the risk of vehicle and pedestrian collisions. Bad weather can increase the risk of parking lot injuries as well, and each year countless people suffer injuries while out shopping for the holidays due to:

  • Car collisions in parking lots
  • Pedestrian accidents in parking lots
  • Slips on untreated pavement
  • Trips on cracks in the pavement
  • Other unexpected dangers in crowded parking lots

In many cases, these accidents can lead to serious injuries. However, since these accidents often result from someone else’s negligence (such as texting behind the wheel), victims will frequently be entitled to financial compensation for their injury-related losses. This includes compensation for medical bills, prescription costs, lost income, pain and emotional distress. This compensation can be recovered through a personal injury lawsuit, and most of these lawsuits settle before ever getting close to trial.

But, even securing a settlement takes time and, if you have a claim, you want to make sure that your lawyer has the time he or she needs to maximize your financial recovery. So, what do you do if you need money now while your lawsuit is pending?
