Civil court cases have been drastically affected by COVID-19 pandemic.
Across the country, courts have curtailed operations to handle only critical criminal cases, leaving civil cases to collect dust in courthouse filing cabinets. During this unprecedented courtroom closure, attorneys are working remotely, handling what they can via phone or virtual meeting services. Some courts may even move a case or two remotely, holding pre-trial or status conferences and some motions by phone or Internet conference. So, not all the news is bad, right? Wrong!
Although law firms may work remotely and some effort is being made to move cases forward, the process has slowed, almost to a standstill. Discovery is being delayed; trials are adjourned indefinitely because cases cannot be tried. Insurance companies can sit on their money because plaintiff lawyers have little power (without a judge or jury) to force them to trial, mediation, or to commence settlement negotiations.
Without the threat of an impending trial, what incentive does an insurance company have to resolve a case? They did what they could to delay justice when the system was open for business. Now, they have an easy excuse to delay, deny, confuse, and refuse. Thousands of cases are left in limbo; the longer the pandemic lasts, the longer it will take for settlements to be reached.
So, what’s a needy plaintiff to do while he or she waits for things to return to normal? How does he or she pay bills when a disability prevents employment and cases cannot be resolved? This combination of events is devastating for plaintiffs in pending lawsuits, as they find themselves falling further and further behind in their financial obligations. The good news is that Lawsuit Financial offers a financial lifeline.
Did you know that you could qualify for a cash advance against your personal injury case, with cash in your hands within 24-48 hours? Did you know that this money is provided based on the success of your lawsuit? That’s right—if you lose your case, you don’t have to pay the money back.
Lawsuit funding is a risk-free cash advance to help plaintiffs until their settlement is reached or a verdict is obtained. To qualify, a plaintiff must only have a pending personal injury case and be represented by an attorney. That’s it – no credit check, employment verification, no collateral, other than your case. The application process takes about 5 minutes and can be done online or over the phone.
Once an application is approved, cash is available within 24- 48 hours and sent via direct deposit or overnight mail. The money should be used for essential bills and expenses like mortgage or rent, car payments, utility bills, medical expenses, groceries, and other necessary bills and expenses. Best of all, there are no payments until the case settles or the verdict is paid. And, again, if the case fails, you don’t have to pay the money back!
