Why Applicants May Be Denied Lawsuit Funding

The concept of lawsuit funding was created to provide relief to pending litigants who, through no fault of their own, need immediate cash but do not qualify for traditional loan products. For some, these emergency funds make the difference between keeping or losing their home and putting food on the table. It can also provide financial leverage needed to achieve a much higher settlement or verdict.

Despite the popularity of lawsuit funding in recent years, not every plaintiff is a viable candidate. In fact, a most common question among applicants is “Why was I denied?”

Here are some of the main reasons you may be denied a lawsuit cash advance.

You do not have an attorney: When providing a lawsuit cash advance, a legal finance company is investing in your lawsuit. Case documentation from the attorney helps the funding company determine the strength of the case. Without documentation, the underwriters can not make that determination. Additionally, the attorney is responsible for repaying the funding company from the proceeds of the settlement.

You have an attorney: Although you have an attorney, you may still be denied funding if your attorney is not working on a contingency basis or if your attorney refuses to provide case documentation needed by the funding company.

Your case is too new: Funding decisions are based in part on supporting case documentation – accident reports, medical records, test results which may take time to obtain.

You have no equity in the case. Equity is the value of the lawsuit once all of the fees, liens, and any expenses have been taken out of the settlement you should win. If the funding company feels you have no equity, chances are they will not be repaid the cash advance plus a profit.

Your case is not strong enough. The funding company accepts all the risk when approving a lawsuit cash advance. If the plaintiff loses the case, the funding company loses; the repayment is completely waived. Therefore, after reviewing case documentation if the funding company does not feel the case is strong enough for the risk it would take, the application will be denied.

Your case is strong enough: Even strong cases can be denied if there is a strong probability that the funding company will not be repaid. This can happen despite winning your case if the defendant does not have the money to pay the settlement.
You have a type of case we don't fund: Generally, cases that are eligible for funding are personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death. Workers’ compensation cases are funded on a limited basis.

Lawsuit Financial understands that waiting for a settlement can be financially devastating especially if you are unable to return to work. That is why we do everything possible to help as many plaintiffs as possible. As an industry leader with over 15 years’ experience, simply providing a lawsuit cash advance to a client is not our only responsibility.

Drunk Drivers Forever Change the Lives of Families

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a drunk driving auto accident, are represented by an attorney, and experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for lawsuit funding. If you qualify, Lawsuit Financial, a leader in the legal funding industry, may be able to provide a lawsuit cash advance within in 24 - 48 hours..

The families of two 17-year-old teens killed in an auto accident in December 2012 have filed lawsuits against the driver accused of causing the accident. The lawsuits allege that the man was driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs when the accident occurred. The suit names the driver’s mother alleging "negligence, recklessness and conscious disregard" because she knew about her son’s lengthy record of speeding tickets and accidents, yet still let him drive her vehicle.

Additional defendants are a Koto Japanese Restaurant, waiter, and bartender alleging that the man was already visibly intoxicated when he was served three double gin and tonics within the hour and that the accident occurred minutes after he left the restaurant.

Under the Dram Shop Act, a vast majority of states allow victims of drunk driving accidents (or their families) to hold restaurants and bars accountable for serious injuries or death caused by an intoxicated patron if the establishment knew, or should have known, the customer was intoxicated — a fuzzy test in application. These laws exist to ensure the public safety by making sure that alcohol-serving establishments are liable in their involvement with customers and their sale of alcohol. When these businesses are driven by profits and neglect to oversee their patron’s alcohol consumption, they can be held partially responsible for the negligence of the patron’s drunk driving accident.

Both families have stated the lawsuits are not about the money, but accountability. They plan to donate whatever settlement is reached to a fund set up in honor of their children to benefit others. Their attorneys do not expect a jury trial earlier than 18 months.

Reports confirm that at the time of the accident, the negligent driver was travelling at roughly 80 mph and had 8.4 nanograms/milliliter of active byproduct of marijuana THC in his blood stream, an extremely high quantity. Witnesses to the accident told police that the man never applied his brakes before impact. In September 2013, the 24-year-old man admitted he was drunk, speeding and text-messaging when he smashed his Ford Explorer carrying the two deceased teens and two other teenagers who were seriously injured and also filed lawsuits.

By the time these families are able to see the settlement of their lawsuits, they may have medical bills, funeral expenses, and other bills piled up. At this difficult time, they may need financial assistance until their case settles. Lawsuit funding is a means of obtaining fast cash when plaintiffs have no where else to turn. With a lawsuit cash advance, they can have peace of mind that comes from the assurance that the bills are paid and daily needs are met.

Lawsuit Financial is a reputable legal finance company. We help victims regain control of their lives and their finances while their attorney focuses on strengthening their case to obtain the compensation justly deserved. Since lawsuit funding is based on the merit of the case, credit and employment are irrelevant. There are no upfront fees or monthly payments, and the cash advance is only repaid if, and when the case successfully settles.

It is easy to apply for lawsuit funding either online or by phone. If approved, the cash advance can be available in as little as 24 hours. If you have been in a drunk driving auto accident and experiencing financial hardship, contact Lawsuit Financial for a “staying power” advantage, so you can fight for justice and the compensation you deserve.

Never Be Forced to Accept a Low Settlement Offer

A male driver and two children were killed after being trapped in their Toyota Corolla that was rear-ended and burst into flames on a California roadway. Another man and child were rescued and rushed to the hospital in serious condition. All five individuals in the Toyota were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. The driver of the 2013 Model S Tesla that hit the Corolla suffered minor injuries. A preliminary investigation suggests that alcohol and drugs were not factors in the accident. Investigators are seeking anyone who may have witnessed the accident.

Was the driver speeding or distracted? Was there a mechanical failure or defect? While all the details of this fatal auto accident won’t be known until the investigation is complete, Tesla has been under scrutiny since vehicle fires allegedly resulted from “spontaneous ignitions of batteries” and another attributed to “failure of equipment or heat source.” No matter how this investigation concludes, the family of the victims should seek legal advice from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. A personal injury attorney will help determine if the auto manufacturer was responsible for a defective part, and/or if the accident was due to drive negligence.

Auto accident victims have a number of entitled benefits, which can be lost without the representation of an experienced personal injury attorney. Cases like this take a long time to settle causing immediate and long-term financial problems for victims and families. Lawsuit funding can put victims back in the driver’s seat. With a lawsuit cash advance, they can pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and ongoing monthly bills during the litigation process.

It is free and easy to apply for a lawsuit funding online or by phone. There are also no monthly payments, credit checks, or employment verification. If approved, the lawsuit cash advance would arrive within 24-48 hours by check or by wire. Repayment is contingent upon the outcome of the case; if the case is lost, the lawsuit cash advance is waived in its entirety. That is correct; the plaintiff would owe nothing.

If you are in a pending lawsuit and struggling to make ends meet, lawsuit funding can mean the difference between settling for less too early and waiting for a fair judgment later. Call us today if you have any funding questions. We offer free, no-obligation consultations.

Of course, slip & fall lawsuits may take years before a settlement is reached. When a victim is unable to work, but the bills keeping coming in, the ability to wait for just compensation may not be an option. Pre-settlement lawsuit funding can help bridge the gap while the case winds through the litigation process.

A shopper who fractured her hip in a supermarket a slip and fall accident was awarded $1.1 million in her personal injury lawsuit. The plaintiff alleged that she fell on an unidentified liquid because the grocer failed to adequately inspect and maintain the premises. As a result of the fall, the woman underwent reconstructive surgery an ultimately needed a full hip replacement.
