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.

However, there is a viable solution that many don’t know about.

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.

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.
