Pre-Settlement Funding: A Powerful Tool for Plaintiffs to Plaintiffs to Meet Pressing Financial Demands

September 11, 2014

A personal injury can leave victims in financial ruin, but pre-settlement funding can help plaintiffs wait for justice.

All too often, plaintiffs with a legitimate claim face powerful insurance companies or large corporations with deep pockets to withstand the litigation process. On the other hand, plaintiffs have fewer resources, and if seriously injured may be faced with considerable medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial burdens. Powerful defendants know this and will purposely deny, delay, and defend a claim as a way to put extra monetary burden on plaintiffs. When this happens, plaintiffs might be influenced to settle quickly and for less than case value. Often times, pre-settlement funding can help plaintiffs obtain justice they deserve.

What is pre-settlement funding?
Pre-settlement funding is a cash advance that provides plaintiffs in the pending lawsuit emergency cash against the expected proceeds of their settlement.

Who can apply for pre-settlement funding?
Any personal injury victim who has retained an experience attorney and has filed a personal injury lawsuit can apply for pre-settlement funding.

When should a plaintiff apply for pre-settlement funding?
Typically, plaintiffs will apply for pre-settlement funding when a case is long and drawn out and there is an immediate financial need.

Why should a plaintiff apply for pre-settlement funding?
A plaintiff should consider pre-settlement funding when the case is long and drawn out, the bills are piling up, and there is no other sources of cash – savings, family, friends, etc. – to tap into.

How does the funding company determine if a plaintiff can obtain pre-settlement funding?
Once a plaintiff applies for pre-settlement funding, the funding company will contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation. The only requirement for approval is a case with merit. If the case is deemed to have merit, funds will be awarded based on case value. There are no credit checks or employment verifications.

How can pre-settlement funding be used?
Pre-settlement funding can be used for anything the plaintiff deems fit, but is typically used to pay the essentials – medical expenses, mortgage or rent payments, tuition, auto payments, groceries, as well other necessities.

Why can’t plaintiffs apply for a traditional bank loan?
Most traditional banks will not provide a loan against a lawsuit. Additionally, banks require monthly payments, credit checks, and employment verification, as well as the promise to pay back the loan whether or not the plaintiff wins the case.

When is the funding company paid back?
Once the legal proceeding is finished and a settlement has been reached, the funding company is repaid from the proceeds of the lawsuit.

Can plaintiffs prepay the cash advance?
Plaintiffs can pay back the cash advance at any time prior to settlement without penalty.

What if the plaintiff loses the case?
Because pre-settlement funding is provided on a non-recourse basis, if the plaintiff loses the case, the lawsuit cash advance is completely waived.

With a lawsuit cash advance in hand, plaintiffs can avoid debt and jeopardizing their credit, stay financially afloat, and provide time for their attorney to obtain a larger, fairer settlement. If you are in a pending personal injury lawsuit and seeking financial assistance until your case settles, consider pre-settlement funding. Call for more details or apply online.

After the Lawsuit Is Filed it may be Time to Apply for Lawsuit Funding

August 14, 2014

Thousands of innocent victims are injured or die due to the negligence of someone else. These unfortunate events can result from an auto accident, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, slip and fall, or product liability. Often times, the more serious the injury, the harder it will be for a plaintiff to withstand the litigation process. A seriously injured plaintiff, especially one who is out of work or requires around-the-clock care may be forced to settle too early for too little compensation in order to pay medical expenses, the mortgage or rent, auto payments, and daily living expenses. A plaintiff represented by an attorney, is eligible for lawsuit funding, a non-recourse cash advance based on the potential value of the pending lawsuit.

Litigation can be expensive, sometimes incredibly expensive. Lawsuit funding helps plaintiffs go the distance without being forced to accept anything less than a fair settlement. Many plaintiffs will be out of work for weeks, months, even years; they will not have the income during their recovery period. Lawsuit funding is sometimes their only access to cash; many victims do not have good credit and/or income to qualify them for a traditional loan. Traditional loans also require monthly payments which may be difficult for plaintiffs injured, disabled and without income. By removing a plaintiff’s financial burden, lawsuit funding enables a lawsuit to be resolved on its true merits.

Lawsuit funding is not for everyone, but for many plaintiffs it is the only hope pay their bills while maintaining their fight for fair compensation. If you have been involved in a personal injury lawsuit, have filed a claim, and need financial assistance to pay the bills and/or avoid foreclosure, contact Litigation Funding Corp.

Because the funding company accepts all the risk, litigation funding gives plaintiffs instant access to cash 100% risk-free.

We all are aware that thousands of innocent people suffer from a personal injury every year, but no one imagines that it could ever happen to them or someone they love. Depending on the type and the severity of the injury, medical expenses can reach thousands of dollars or more, pain and suffering can last years, and some injuries can put a victim out of work for life.

When the injury is due to the actions or negligence or another person or entity, the victim may pursue a personal injury lawsuit to receive financial compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, long or short term disabilities, even redress for emotional or psychological injuries.

Filing a personal injury lawsuit is about justice and receiving fair compensation to help a victim cover medical, funeral expenses, long term care, and/or loss of wages, but it can also help prevent such negligence from being repeated.

Pre-settlement funding prevents this from happening.

A Lawsuit is Stressful Enough; Let Lawsuit Funding Ease the Financial Challenges

February 11, 2014

Filing a personal injury lawsuit can be emotionally, physically, and financially stressful, but what happens when the negligence leads to serious injury, loss of income, or other damages? A lawsuit is intended to compensate innocent victims, but the lawsuit can take months, even years to work its way through the legal process. In the meantime, a plaintiff may be faced with mounting bills – medical expenses, mortgage or rent payments, auto payments, tuition, or daily household expenses especially one who has suffered an injury and cannot return to work. For some, even putting food on the table can be a challenge.

Lawsuit funding is not a familiar term to many people involved in a lawsuit, yet it can make the difference in a plaintiff’s financial well-being. Plaintiffs have fewer resources than the large corporations and insurance companies putting the plaintiff in a vulnerable position, especially when a case drags on for years. When a deep-pocket defendant delays proceedings or drags out a case, it makes a financially strapped plaintiff vulnerable, and one who will consider accepting a less than favorable settlement. Lawsuit funding provides the much needed cash when the plaintiff needs it most. With a lawsuit cash advance, the victim can focus on seeking treatment and healing from injuries, rather than worrying about how to pay the mortgage or feed the family.

Plaintiffs may be eligible for a lawsuit cash advance at any point between when s/he filed a lawsuit and the time the case is settled. Obtaining funding is quick and easy with no credit checks or employment verification. Additionally, there are no monthly fees or other out-of-pocket expenses. With the cooperation of the plaintiff’s attorney, an application can be reviewed and approved in as little as 24 hours. Best of all, lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse basis meaning repayment is only made once the case successfully settles; if the plaintiff loses the case, repayment is waived.

If you are in the midst of a personal injury lawsuit and need financial assistance, lawsuit funding may be the right choice for you. For more information, call Litigation Funding Corp. at 1-866-548-3863 or visit us online.
