A “personal injury” is that life-changing moment when you are seriously injured as the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. While the most obvious example of this is an automobile accident, a personal injury lawsuit can result from a slip and fall accident, medical malpractice, dog bite, dangerous or defective product, and much more. However you have been injured, whoever is the negligent party and whatever the circumstances, you may experience severe injuries and disabilities. Coupled with being unable to work, you may be faced with a mountain of medical bills, financial and emotional stress, and the inability to pay even your basic, everyday living expenses. As you face this difficult time, you may also find yourself waiting a long time for your case to produce justice. If in this unfortunate situation, pre-settlement funding could provide some financial peace of mind.
What is pre-settlement funding? Simply put, a legal finance company provides you with a cash advance on the money you will receive once your case settles, without a long delay and no strings attached. This type of funding is known as nonrecourse, meaning that you owe nothing until your case has settled, and if you lose your case, the repayment is waived.
What if you don’t have time to wait for a long approval process? The easiest and fastest way to get started is by completing an online funding application. This takes five minutes or less. Next, the funding company will request case documentation from your attorney. After evaluating the case, if you application is approved, both you and your attorney will sign a funding agreement. Your funds can be wired directly into your bank account within 24-48 hours.
