Have you been injured in an accident that was not your fault? Have you missed a substantial amount of time from work? Have you hired an attorney and sued the person, persons or entity responsible for your injuries and disability? If so, your golden, right? Well, maybe….
What if the disability from work lasts longer than you expected? What if the lawsuit takes much longer to resolve than you expected? What if you can’t get a quick trial date or an early, satisfactory, settlement offer? What if your case proceeds to trial and the result is appealed, a process that can take years? What if your savings run out before a fair settlement is achieved? What do you do when you run out of money before your lawsuit reaches the promised land or your health returns (if it returns) to pre-accident state?
Whether you have been injured in an auto accident, slip and fall accident or construction accident, or any other kind of accident, these serious questions could apply to you. Whether you have been injured in the operating room or through a misdiagnosis caused by medical malpractice, by a defective product, or mauled by your neighbor’s pit bull, these are serious questions that require serious answers. If the principal family breadwinner is killed in an airplane accident, automobile accident, construction accident, sports accident, train accident or an accident at sea, you are entitled to pursue damages for your injuries and/or loss; however, justice does not always come swiftly or inexpensively. Developing financial problems after a serious injury or death in the family adds serious insult upon devastating injury. Where do you turn to for help?
Your first thought is, probably, your lawyer, right? Your lawyer will certainly provide you the best legal service he can possibly provide, but, under most state codes of professional liability, a lawyer must avoid acquiring an interest in his/her client’s litigation. In short, a lawyer cannot loan his client money under the disciplinary rules of most states. You can turn to a family member or friend, but slow or no repayment will effect that important relationship for years to come. You can ask a bank, but unless you have substantial collateral for a loan and are willing to put that collateral (house, car, jewelry) at risk if you lose the case, you may be risking everything. What do you do? Where do you go?
Lawsuit Funding or pre-settlement funding from Lawsuit Financial is the obvious answer to these very serious, life-altering questions. You can acquire a no-risk, legal cash advance against the anticipated recovery in your lawsuit, without risking your home, car or other valuable asset. You see, lawsuit financing from Lawsuit Financial is known as “non-recourse” lawsuit funding; repayment is contingent upon the outcome in your case. In other words, if the lawsuit is unsuccessful, you don’t owe Lawsuit Financial a dime. The obligation is completely excused. Lawsuit advances like these can be expensive if you win your case, so you are cautioned to use the service wisely and only under necessary circumstances, but Lawsuit Financial does what even your lawyer can’t do: We guarantee you a case recovery equal to the amount of money we advance, because, if you lose your personal injury case, you do not have to pay us back.

You may call Lawsuit Financial, toll free, at 1-877-377-SUIT (7848) and get free advice and case analysis over the phone, from one of our very experienced legal assistants or from our company CEO.

Almost everything else we need will come from inquiries and discussions with your lawyer.
If you are shopping around for legal funding services, here are a few tips:
1. Seek funding only for a serious need. If you are looking for money for anything that is not essential (food, car payments, clothing, shelter (rent, mortgage payments, foreclosure avoidance), medical treatment, prescriptions, surgery) you probably should wait until you have a serious need for the money.
2. If your need is so great that you are considering an insurance company’s offer of settlement against your attorney’s advice, it is time to consider legal finance.
3. Seek lawsuit funding that appropriately fits into the projected value of your case. These legal advances are expensive if your case is successful (free if you lose). You only wish a lawsuit financing company to own a right to a small part of your case. You’re the one who was hurt; you deserve your money.
4. Make sure that the lawsuit funding company has a hands off policy as to the handling of the case. You and your attorney do not want to be answering to or discussing settlement or trial strategy with a legal funding company.
5. Make sure that the litigation funding is non-recourse, or contingent on the outcome of the litigation. That way, if you lose the case, the repayment obligation is excused.
6. Seek case funding companies that provide legal financing on a flat fee basis and not by charging monthly compounded interest (also, will the litigation finance company provide an appropriate compromise?-see below).
7. Ask Questions. Is the lawsuit finance company and company representative experienced? How long has it been in business? Does it engage in pre-settlement funding on a national level? Are the company and company representatives principals or brokers? Do they have extensive legal and/or financial experience? Will the litigation funding company compromise its fees if the case results are far below the value predicted at the time the lawsuit cash advance is made?
Pre settlement legal financing is not for everyone and should be considered only as a last resort. The right lawsuit financial company and the right lawsuit cash advance at the right time can make a huge difference in your lawsuit’s recovery. Don’t take the insurance company’s low ball offer against your attorney’s advice. Consider lawsuit financing from Lawsuit Financial, instead.
