A California family was recently awarded more than $36 million in a personal injury lawsuit.

In October 2012, a then six-year-old girl was struck by a car in the middle of the street while she was attempting to catch the school bus. She was in the care of an adult neighbor at the time. The child flew 70 feet into the air, before landing on the pavement. As a result of the accident, the little girl suffered serious injuries including fractures to her neck, pelvis, arm, and leg. She went into cardiac arrest several times and was in a coma for three months. Due to a permanent traumatic brain injury, the child requires around-the-clock care by a licensed vocational nurse (LVN), for the rest of her life. The settlement will go into a trust for her medical care.

The lawsuit alleged that the company providing transportation services failed to report and prevent mid-street crossings, which is a violation of their own policies and procedures. Under the system, students who violate the rules get a verbal warning and then a written warning. Discipline can eventually include losing school bus privileges.

Facing a lawsuit can be financially stressful. Litigation funding can help a plaintiff through the tough times.

A person pursuing a lawsuit, who is desperate for immediate cash, is not a positive influence during the litigation process. Insurance companies and big corporate defendants know this and will deliberately delay the process. They will use deny, delay, and defend tactics not only to hold onto their cash longer, but in an attempt to get the plaintiff to settle too soon for too little.

For those plaintiffs that hold out, it can still take months, even years to reach a fair settlement. During this time, lost wages and mounting expenses can become a huge financial burden. A lawsuit cash advance, often termed “lawsuit loan,” helps seriously injured victims who might otherwise have trouble paying medical bills, mortgage or rent payments, car payments, or daily living expenses while waiting for their personal injury lawsuit to resolve/settle.

A Manhattan jury recently awarded a 24-year-old woman $71 million for injuries sustained in a 2012 auto accident. The award consisted of $5 million for past pain and suffering, $6 million for future pain and suffering, and $60 million to cover medical needs for the rest of her life. The verdict came after a three-week-long jury trial.

Three college students were on their way to Cornell College when the driver fell asleep behind the wheel, veered into oncoming traffic, and crashed into a minivan. An elderly woman in the van was pronounced dead at the hospital; the driver and her son suffered non-life threatening injuries. The three college students were treated at the hospital; one passenger (the plaintiff in this case) suffered a fracture of her lumbar spine. According to her attorney, the woman now walks with leg braces, but still suffers from neurogenic bowel.

Serious injuries are always accompanied by extensive medical bills. The innocent victim may be unable to return to work. However, lawsuits take time to reach a settlement. A lawsuit cash advance can provide significant financial relief. These advances, known as lawsuit funding, allow a family time to heal while they pay the medical expenses and other important bills. With the financial pressure removed, there is no need to resolve any case for less than the full case value.

After an auto accident or other personal injury, the insurance company will usually make a low settlement offer hoping the claimant will be want to settle quickly. Many injured victims, especially those unable to return to work and who are watching the unpaid bills pile up, will feel accepting the offer is the only option. In cases like this, lawsuit funding can be used not only to pay the bills and help the victim regain financial independence, but it is also a strategic tool to increase the value of the case.

Like other industries, many lawsuit funding companies heavily advertise, and you will find no shortage of this financial service on the internet.

The first step should be asking yourself why you need the money. Lawsuit funding is provided on a non-recourse, meaning the cash advance is only repaid if you win your case. Because the legal finance company is taking all the risks, this type of funding is more expensive than traditional financing. Therefore, if you don’t need the money to keep a roof over your head, to feed your family, make medical payments, or for other important needs, or, if you have other immediate sources of revenue, you should reconsider seeking a lawsuit cash advance.
