Lawsuit Financial is the company many plaintiffs turn to for a cash advance while waiting for their settlement or day in court.

In the event you are the victim of a personal injury and going head-to-head into battle with a big corporation or insurance company, you should be prepared for a lengthy litigation process that includes the defendant denying delaying, and defending the claim. First, and foremost, you need to hire an experienced attorney who can help obtain the best possible settlement. Once you have retained an attorney and the lawsuit is filed, if you are experiencing financial pressure or maybe injuries have left you unable to work and earn an income, you may be a perfect candidate for lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a means for plaintiffs to play the waiting game rather than settling for less than full case value. While often confused with a loan, this is definitely not the case. A lawsuit cash advance requires no credit checks or employment verification, and with the appropriate case documentation, funding can be used as quickly as 24 hours. The major difference between lawsuit funding and a loan is that a lawsuit cash advance is risk-free.

For plaintiffs involved in a lawsuit, one of the biggest obstacles before, during and after a lawsuit is having enough money to pay the bills and expenses, especially for those unable to return to work. Medical bills, mortgage payments, auto payments, and other expenses can quickly add up, turning add up quickly, sending injured victims into a financial tail spin. However, there is a viable solution that many don’t know about.

Some call it a lawsuit loan. Others call it lawsuit funding, litigation funding, pre-settlement funding, or a lawsuit cash advance. Despite the term used, it is a means to giving plaintiffs access to cash while waiting for a lawsuit to settle.

If you are seriously injured in an auto accident, obtaining medical care is just one aspect of healing. Finding help dealing with the insurance claim is another.

An auto accident can happen for a host of reasons, including speeding, reckless driving, texting, poor road conditions, inclement weather, and more. The results can have a devastating impact of both you and your family. In addition to the pain and suffering, you may wait months even years before receiving monetary compensation. In the meantime, you may be unable to work and have no means to pay the bills. Lawsuit Financial can provide quick and easy financial relief, often within 24 – 48 hours, with a lawsuit cash advance.

Every year, thousands of people file personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits. One of the biggest hurdles however, is the waiting game. It is not unusual for the insurance company or profit-driven corporate defendant to drag the case out for years hoping to never make a payment or to pay far less than the plaintiff deserves. Even after a claim is settled, it could be months or years before a check is received. In the meantime, many plaintiffs have mounting bills and expenses with no way to make the payments. Rather than settling for less than full case value, a plaintiff can level the playing field with lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance that doesn’t require the applicant to have good credit or collateral; employment is not required either. The only eligibility requirements for a lawsuit cash advance is a strong case and attorney representation. The amount funded is based on the projected settlement.

The best part about lawsuit funding is that repayment is made only after the case settles. At that time, the plaintiff’s attorney will repay the advance from the proceeds of the settlement. If the case is lost, the repayment is completely waived. The funded plaintiff keeps the cash advance, no questions asked. This makes it a win-win situation for the plaintiff.

A 21-year-old Bryan, Texas man was killed and three others were injured in a rollover accident.

According to police, four people were in a pick-up when the driver lost control and the truck flipped and rolled. One passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. A male and female passenger were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The 18-year-old driver suffered serious injuries, but is expected to recover. The accident remains under investigation, but speed appears to be a factor.

Careless or reckless drivers cause accidents every day, resulting in serious or fatal injuries. The at-fault driver can be held responsible for damages including medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and more. Unfortunately, plaintiffs may not be compensated for years, yet they simply do not have the financial resources to wait out the long litigation process. As the bills pile up, financial hardship mounts. While the case is in progress, lawsuit funding can be used to lessen that financial burden. Without the pressure to settle, the plaintiff’s attorney has time to obtain the largest possible settlement.

When we place our loved ones in the care of a nursing home, we expect they will receive quality care. Unfortunately, nursing home negligence and abuse are all too common due in part to overworked nurses, under-trained staff, and/or a simple lack of interest by nursing home staff. A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for damages. It may also be a means to improve safety and quality of care.

An 84-year-old Virginia woman was admitted to a nursing home in September 2015, with varying degrees of cognitive impairment. She relied on nursing staff for medical services and to help her bathe, eat and dress. One day, her daughter received an anonymous phone call from a staff member at the facility, telling her about an incident and that she should check on her mother’s well-being. That call eventually led to a lawsuit against the nursing home, its administrator, the director of nursing, two nurses and the facility’s management company.

According to the claim, the resident was tied to a wheelchair with bed sheets and injected with a powerful narcotic drug in an effort to keep her quiet. The physical and chemical restraints forced on the elderly woman were reportedly kept in place overnight, according to the complaint.

Imagine that you’ve been seriously injured in an auto accident. You are unable work and the bills are piling up. You hired an attorney to help you with your claim, but things are moving slowly. You need money know or the utilities will be turned off. You could soon lose your home.

Creditors don’t care that you are in a pending lawsuit. They don’t care that the wheels of justice are turning slowly. They don’t want to hear that you will achieve a large settlement and once that happens, your bills will be paid. They want their money, and they want it now!

So what can you do?

The strains of a legal battle can be exhausting, both emotionally and physically. It can often take months, if not years, to reach a settlement, compounding financial pressures during this arduous time. Opting to settle out of court might save you time and trouble, but it could also mean getting a lesser settlement than you deserve. When financial struggles are the driving force in your decision to settle, lawsuit funding could be a better solution.

Consider this: You are on your way to work when a distracted driver sideswipes your car, sending you down an embankment. Your car is totally and you have suffered serious injuries, resulting in at least six months out of work. Before the accident, you were living paycheck to paycheck; you had little savings in the bank. Now, you not only face mounting medical expenses, but foreclosure. To make matters worse, its tax time. With nowhere to turn, you ask your attorney to settle your case at all cost.

Lawsuit Financial has a better option – lawsuit funding!

Are you in a personal injury lawsuit and feeling pressure to settle prematurely simply to pay the bills? Most people do not know this, but plaintiffs in a pending lawsuit, represented by an attorney, and in need of fast cash before their case settles, are eligible for lawsuit funding.

Insurance companies and big businesses have all the time and money to apply delay tactics to force plaintiffs into settling for less that justice demands. For this reason, Lawsuit Financial was created.

Lawsuit Financial is an alternative source of funding for plaintiffs who typically will not qualify for a traditional bank loan. While often referred to as a “lawsuit loan,” lawsuit funding is not really a loan. It is a non-recourse cash advance that provides plaintiffs with fast cash to meet current bills and expenses rather than being forced into an unfair settlement. There is no risk to the plaintiff because unlike a bank loan there are no monthly payments and the cash advance is only repaid if the plaintiff wins the case and reaches a settlement. If the plaintiff loses, repayment is not required.
