Pre-Settlement Lawsuit Loans for Plaintiffs

TriMark Legal Funding has been one of America’s top rated pre-settlement funding companies since 2003. We provide lawsuit loans to plaintiffs with pending legal cases nationwide; often in as little as 12 to 24 hours. Pre-settlement funding is 100% risk-free, requires no credit check and can provide the money you need to regain your financial stability before your case settles.

Settlement loans from TriMark Legal Funding are risk-free because you only repay lawsuit loans after your case settles or you win in court. If you lose, you keep the money and owe nothing.

TriMark works hard to deliver fast, low-cost lawsuit loans to people all across the country with serious injuries and a pending or settled lawsuit. While many of the cases we fund involve car accident loans and personal injury loans, we provide pre settlement funding on many other case types as well.

Pre settlement lawsuit loans give plaintiffs what they need most – their settlement money – right when they need it.

Those are 4 extremely powerful assets that can help you take the fight to your opponent and help your attorney negotiate the largest, fairest, most appropriate settlement you deserve.

What is Pre-Settlement Funding?

Pre-settlement funding, while frequently referred to by misnomers such as ‘settlement loan‘, ‘lawsuit loan‘ or ‘legal loan’,  is not actually a loan at all.

Instead, it is a cash advance on your future expected settlement award designed specifically for plaintiffs who are involved in a lawsuit or other legal claim.

Unlike traditional credit-based loans, your credit score doesn’t matter and you don’t need real estate collateral or a co-signor either. Your approval is based on the strength and merits of your case, not your credit score.

There are no monthly payments. Lawsuit loans are considered 100% risk-free because repayment of the settlement advance is entirely dependant upon the successful outcome of your case.

That means after you settle the case or win a court verdict, you repay the advance. If you lose or your case doesn’t settle, you keep the money and owe nothing.

What is pre settlement funding?

Pre-settlement funding provides plaintiffs with a not-recourse cash advance based on the future settlement award that they expect to receive from a lawsuit or legal claim. If you've been seriously injured and need money to pay your bills and living expenses before your case settles, pre-settlement funding is a way to get the cash you need very quickly.

How does pre settlement funding work?

Pre-settlement funding companies buy a portion of your future expected settlement award in exchange for immediate cash so you can pay bills and other necessities before your case settles. Once the case is settled, your attorney will pay their fee, case costs, medical liens, and the funding company and then cuts you a check for everything that is left.

Can you get a loan before your settlement?

A pre-settlement cash advance provides plaintiffs with the cash needed to pay bills and living expenses before a case is settled. The money can be used to pay for rent or mortgage, car payments or repairs, medical expenses, co-pays or even groceries. You are free to used the money from the advance in any manner you choose.

How long does it take to get a settlement loan?

We go very quickly. Right after we receive your application, we reach out to your attorney to get some details on the case. Once all requested information is received from your attorney we usually have an approval with 1 to 24 hours. A funding agreement is sent to your attorney for signatures. Once we receive the executed agreement back, funds are released about an hour later. Funds can be sent by wire transfer, FedEx Overnight, Western Union, MoneyGram, etc.

How much funding can I get?

TriMark can provide cash advances on your lawsuit settlement for anywhere between $500 and $5,000,000+ depending on the value of your case and how much you need. Obviously the higher the value of the case, the more funding you could potentially be approved for. In all cases however, we recommend you request the least amount that will satisfy your financial issues.

Does my case qualify?

Click here to find out right now. It's free, it takes less than 30 seconds to find out if your case could qualify for a lawsuit loan and there is no obligation.

Can my lawyer give me a loan?

No. State Bar Associations have long held that it is unethical for an attorney to loan money to their client due to the obvious conflict of interest. It is a good idea to talk with your attorney about any financial problems however and you should definitely tell your attorney when you apply for funding with TriMark so they know to expect to hear from us.

Does my lawyer have to be involved?

To an extent, yes. Your attorney will need to provide us with case documents and information to review your case and will also need to sign a lien acknowledgment. Your attorney will also be the one to send repayment once your case has settled successfully.

Can I get a pre settlement loan if I don’t have a lawyer?

No. All lawsuit funding companies require plaintiffs to be represented by a contingent fee attorney.  No self-represented and no pro se.
