The mother of two was seriously injured in an auto-truck accident, and one of her children was killed, when a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and suddenly veered into her lane. She suffered serious and debilitating injuries, severe emotional problems and was physically unable to work.
The woman’s medical expenses and other bills began to accrue; her mortgage payments were several months behind. The insurance company offered her $500,000 to settle her case. Although she knew her case was worth significantly more, without income, the woman had no means to support her family, pay her medical expenses, or pay funeral and burial expenses for her lost child. Financially distraught, she was ready to accept the insurance company’s offer when her attorney recommended lawsuit funding.
“With a lawsuit cash advance, I was able to pay my mortgage, medical bills and funeral expenses. Avoiding debt also meant preserving my good credit standing.”
The lawsuit funding company created a monthly draw equal to her monthly expenses. The case settled less than a year later, at which time she repaid the cash advance and associated fees.
