A serious auto accident can result in disabling or fatal injuries leaving victims with lost income, medical bills, even funeral, and burial expenses. When finances run thin, as a lawsuit drags on, plaintiffs often turn to pre-settlement lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance that can help accident victims avoid accepting a low-ball offer from the insurance company, as well as financial disasters such as eviction, foreclosure, auto repossession, and a ruined credit score.

Unlike a traditional loan, lawsuit funding does not require a credit check or employment verification. That’s because a lawsuit cash advance is based upon the strength of the case. Other benefits are no upfront fees, no out-of-pocket costs, and no monthly payments. Best of all, repayment of the cash advance is only made once the case successfully settles. If the case is lost, repayment is completely waived.

If you have been seriously injured in an auto accident, you may face numerous medical expenses. Who will pay these bills, especially if you require ongoing treatment or surgery and are unable to work?

In no-fault states, at least some medical expenses will be covered under your auto insurance policy, regardless of whether the accident was your fault or not. If the accident was not your fault, you can bring a lawsuit against the responsible party to recover accident-related past and future medical expenses, as well as lost wages for pain and suffering. To determine whether you have the right to file a claim, it is best to consult an experienced auto accident attorney.

Assuming a lawsuit is filed, the time it takes to reach a settlement or verdict could be months, if not years. But, insurance companies usually refuse to pay until a claim settles. This is a deny, delay, and defend tactic to get you to accept less than full case value. Sadly, it might work if you don’t feel you have other options.
