“The holidays can be a stressful time of the year especially when struggling financially,” said Mark Bello, owner and founder of Lawsuit Financial. “As we approach the holiday season, it is more important than ever to provide hope to plaintiffs in need of financial assistance during a pending lawsuit.”

The concept of litigation funding was created to provide relief to pending litigants, who through no fault of their own, need financial assistance but do not qualify for traditional loan products. With the help of a lawsuit cash advance, a case to proceed through the legal process without forcing a plaintiff to settle early – for too little – just to get the bills paid. The availability and cost of funding is based upon case strength and strategic timing; there is no need for a credit check or employment verification. Additionally, litigation funding is a non-recourse “lawsuit loan” meaning the plaintiff only repays the cash advance if, and when, he/she wins their case. If the case is lost, nothing is owed. Therefore, litigation funding can be a great risk-free option for plaintiffs who can’t afford to hold out long enough for a fair settlement offer.

While one of the most common lawsuits we fund are auto accidents, Lawsuit Financial also provides funding for slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice cases, dog bites, wrongful deaths, and much more. We also provide post-settlement funding in cases which have settled but disbursements have yet to be made. Click here to see the list of cases we fund.

Lawsuit Financial is continuously working hard to put smiles on the faces of many financially-strapped plaintiffs and their families who might otherwise go without during this holiday season.

Recently, another attorney nominated a client for our Adopt-a-Family program. The client is a mother of two children, ages six and three who is literally homeless. She was severely injured and disabled in a car accident in 2014. Unable to drive to and from work, she lost her job. Her wish list this holiday season includes blankets and child size hats, gloves, scarves, and snow suits.

Without the benefit of an “adoption,” families like this would be looking forward to a very grim holiday. “Having an injured family member is difficult enough,” explains Mark M. Bello, an attorney and also the company’s founder and CEO. “When you add to it the financial stress of the holiday season, it’s almost like suffering through the injury again. We wanted to help make the holidays a little happier for these families’ with our Adopt-a-Family program and honored that the Michigan Association for Justice has joined us.”

Veterans Day is Tuesday, November 11, 2014, a day to recognize the men and women who have risked their lives to protect our country.

Lawsuit Financial is taking part in this day of remembrance and helping local veterans in the first-ever “Injury Board Day of Action” (#IBDayofAction). The Injury Board (IB) was started in 2001 by attorneys who wanted to help those injured and facing a civil litigation matter find legal representation. Being a part of this community also means getting involved and giving back. Members make an ongoing promise to donate a portion of their time, talent and resources to local causes and non-profit organizations in order to help make where they live a better place for everyone.

On November 10, Lawsuit Financial will be spending the day volunteering at the Detroit VA facility. We will also be donating hygiene kits. We encourage everyone to join us by contacting Jennifer Geiringer at 1-877-377-7848 or Jennifer@lawsuitfinancial.com.
