TriMark Legal Funding is one of the nation’s oldest, most experienced pre settlement funding companies. For the last 22 years, TriMark has been one of America’s ‘go-to guys’ for fast, low-cost lawsuit funding for injured plaintiffs and attorneys.
Plaintiff Legal Funding
TriMark Legal Funding provides fast, easy lawsuit funding to accident victims nationwide.
Legal funding can deliver immediate financial relief to people who, due to someone else’s negligence, have been seriously injured and are awaiting fair compensation for their injuries and other losses.
Lawsuit funding from TriMark can help level the playing field when insurers delay, deny, or withhold payment or use other devious tactics to force cash-strapped injury victims into accepting less than full value settlements for their injuries.
Legal Funding Can Help Restore Fairness
At its core, legal funding is as instrumental in compensating for a lack of basic fairness from insurers as it is in solving injured people’s money problems.
Here’s what we mean by that.
Like our other lawsuit funding clients, your injuries were most likely caused by the negligence of either some other person or a company, right?
Now, through no fault of your own, maybe you’re off work, your income is reduced, you’re behind on bills, your credit is a mess so banks won’t even talk to you, hardship has become a way of life, and each day is a struggle to make ends meet.
Meanwhile, the other guy’s insurer has delayed, denied, and flat-out refused to pay you a fair settlement for so long that your only recourse was to hire an attorney and sue them in open court.
Legal Funding Is Powerful
Lawsuit settlement funding has the power to disrupt that kind of convoluted, unfair, one-sided settlement negotiation.
It can turn the tables on insurers who are bent on exploiting the vulnerabilities and financial hardships of injury victims.
And for a lot of people, it even reinvigorates a feeling of justice and restores their confidence in the justice system.
Moreover, lawsuit funding can provide some much-needed patience and mental peace.
You’re going to need that while your attorney is negotiating the fairest and most appropriate settlement for your injuries.

How Legal Funding Helps

Legal Funding FAQ
Pre-settlement lawsuit funding is available from $1,000 up to $250,000+. A few of the factors that may affect the final approved amount of any funding request are:
❇️ Extent, severity, and permanence of injuries
❇️ Accepted or contested liability
❇️ Case status: pending or settled
❇️ Total available insurance coverage
❇️ Any prior funding
The maximum legal funding advance we can offer on any given case is determined after a thorough case review by one of our underwriters.
Lawsuit funding advances can range from $1,000 up to $250,000+.
Factors that can affect the amount may include:
❇️ How much is requested
❇️ Severity, extent, and permanence of injuries
❇️ Total medical liens to be paid by the settlement
❇️ Any prior legal funding you received
❇️ Available insurance coverage
❇️ Case status: pending or settled
❇️ Our underwriter’s value estimate
The underwriter will estimate a net settlement value for the case. We can typically advance up to a maximum of 20% or 50% for pending or settled cases, respectively.
➡️ Pending cases: Up to 20% of the anticipated net settlement.
➡️ Settled cases: Up to 50% of the actual net settlement.
It means you must have quantifiable injuries that cannot be dismissed as “minimal”.
Broken bones, surgery(s), hospitalization, off work for a significant time, things of that nature.
The minimum injuries we can usually consider for lawsuit funding are on the level of bulging or herniated discs, torn muscles, tendons, or ligaments, torn meniscus, torn ACL, torn rotator cuff, etc.
If you were uninjured, or if your most serious injury is scuffs, scrapes, bumps, bruising, headache, back or neck pain, chiropractic treatment, whiplash, minor lacerations, pulled muscles, sprains, strains, etc., you will likely not qualify for legal funding.
If you’re not sure if your injuries qualify, just give us a call at (877) 932-2628 and we’ll be happy to review them with you.
TriMark Legal Funding is one of the oldest pre settlement funding companies in the legal funding industry.
TriMark was founded in 2003 and has been one of America’s foremost lawsuit loan companies for over 22 years.
In addition to glowing Trustpilot and Google reviews, we also have a stellar A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Legal funding from TriMark is a simple, 3-step process:
❇️ You can apply online; it only takes a minute
❇️ We get case details from your attorney and our underwriter reviews and evaluates your case
❇️ After the funding agreement is executed via DocuSign, funds are deposited into your account via ACH or wire transfer
Our typical turnaround time with a responsive attorney is 12 to 24 hours (one business day).
Yes. At least minimally.
TriMark will request case details from your attorney and will work with them to determine if your case qualifies for pre settlement funding.
And after you are approved, you and your attorney will both sign the funding agreement.
No. Any legal funding you receive is not reported to any credit bureaus and will not show up on your credit reports.
As a result, legal funding will not affect your debt-to-income ratio, nor will it negatively impact your eligibility for home loans or home equity loans, auto loans, or any other credit products.
We process legal funding requests very quickly.
In fact, under ideal circumstances, we have gone from application to disbursement of funds in under 4 hours.
That is atypical, however.
With a cooperative attorney, the entire processing, approval, and funding process can typically be completed within 12 to 48 hours (1 to 2 business days).
Our legal funding rates start around 3% monthly, non-compounding (simple interest) with a X cap.
Not every case will qualify for that rate, however. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be quoted a different rate.
Legal funding rates reflect relative risk, case quality, and strength of liability. In addition, economic factors, such as skyrocketing inflation and fluctuations in the prime rate, can also impact lawsuit loan rates.

Generally speaking, most plaintiffs in civil lawsuits should qualify for a lawsuit cash advance, provided they can meet these basic criteria:
❇️ Received significant injuries due to someone else’s negligence
❇️ Represented by a contingent fee attorney who is willing to work with a legal funding company like TriMark
❇️ Have clear liability against a sufficiently-insured defendant
❇️ Does not reside in a state where legal funding is prohibited or can satisfy the requirements in states where legal funding is restricted
That’s not a benefit that we usually lead with, but according to Jennifer Marshall, an insurance industry ratings department director, in a July 12, 2021, Business Insurance article, winning larger awards and settlements is precisely what she said legal funding helps plaintiffs do. Her words:
“Litigation funding puts upward pressure on claims costs and drives increases in awards and settlements.”
You can read more about it here.
No, unfortunately not.
All plaintiffs requesting non-recourse legal funding must be represented by a contingent fee attorney.
Pro Bono (free representation), pro se (self representation), hourly retainer (pay as you go), government representation (the EEOC, for example), and class action lawsuits are all ineligible for lawsuit funding.
TriMark Legal Funding can provide lawsuit cash advances on virtually any kind of civil lawsuit as long as:
❇️ You received significant injuries due to someone else’s negligence
❇️ You are represented by a contingent fee attorney who is willing to cooperate with legal funding companies
❇️ Your attorney can show clear liability against a sufficiently insured defendant
You can see a more comprehensive list at Cases We Fund.
It will depend on several factors, including how much you have already received in relation to the maximum funding ratio discussed earlier.
If TriMark has already given you a lawsuit cash advance and you need another, give us a call and let us know how much more money you need.
If you got your lawsuit cash advance from another company, complete an application.
Be sure to include the name of the funding company and the balance owed, as we will need to arrange to buy out the prior advance and add it to your new funding.
Legal Funding Can Protect Your Credit
If you’re more than a day over the age of eighteen and live in the United States, you understand that having good credit is a pretty big deal. Good credit can greatly impact the quality of a person’s life, and lifestyle.
Unfortunately, so can bad credit. The problem is that bad credit is so easy to get and stays with you for so long.
After an injury, it only takes ‘a minute’ to fall behind on bills, but it can take years to dig yourself out again.
Adding insult to injury, every single one of those late or missed payments will cause long-lasting damage to your credit.
Late payments, defaulted loans, evictions, repossessions, and foreclosures all stay on your credit reports for 7 years.
That can make it difficult or impossible to move on, long after your lawsuit has been settled and forgotten.
Legal funding can play a crucial role in helping you get current, and keep current, on all of your finances.
Use Legal Funding For Any Purpose
You can use the pre settlement lawsuit funding you get from TriMark to get caught up on bills including rent or mortgage, vehicle payments, co-pays, utilities, groceries, insurance, emergency travel, or anything else you might need.
The money is yours and there are no restrictions or limitations on how you may use it.
How To Qualify For Lawsuit Funding
The minimum requirements to qualify for legal funding are:
- Must be the plaintiff in a civil lawsuit
- Must have received significant injuries
- Must be represented by a contingent fee attorney
- Must have strong liability against a sufficiently insured defendant
Legal Funding Is 100% Risk-Free
Best of all, legal funding from TriMark doesn’t have to be repaid unless, and until, you win your case.
If you don’t win, you get to keep the money we advanced and owe nothing.
The Biggest Benefit of Lawsuit Funding
In addition to relieving stress and anxiety, helping to protect your credit, only having to be repaid after you win, and helping to maintain domestic tranquility, legal funding has one more huge benefit.
Hands down, the single most powerful benefit that legal funding delivers is its unique ability to eliminate the need to settle early.
In other words, it can remove the financial compulsion that drives so many plaintiffs to settle for far less than the full value their cases are worth.
When you’re not putting constant pressure on your attorney to settle early because of financial reasons, your attorney immediately has extra time, extra leverage, and more negotiating power.
Simply put, it can change the power dynamic which, in turn, empowers your attorney to negotiate from a position of strength, rather than a position of weakness.
More time allows your attorney to fully develop your case so they can negotiate the maximum compensation your injuries demand and get you the fair and equitable settlement you deserve.
