Lawsuit Funding 101: The how's, why's, and what for's of legal funding.

What Is Lawsuit Funding?

Lawsuit funding is referred to by many names such as lawsuit loans, pre-settlement loans, and post-settlement loans.

Despite what many people call it, however, it’s not a loan.

Legal funding is a non-recourse cash advance of a portion of the anticipated future value of a plaintiff’s lawsuit settlement.

It is designed specifically to suit the unique needs of injured plaintiffs, and plaintiffs are the only people who can get them.

Settlement Funding Is Only For Plaintiffs

Unlike traditional bank loans, approval for a lawsuit cash advance is not based on credit scores, co-signors, or real estate collateral.

This is great news for people whose credit scores have taken a beating after they were injured and fell behind on bills.

Rather than credit scores, lawsuit advances are approved almost entirely on the strengths and merits of the underlying legal claim. This includes:

  • Plaintiff must be represented by a contingent-fee attorney
  • There must be clear liability against the defendant
  • The severity and extent of the plaintiff’s injuries
  • The total amount of available insurance coverage

More Beneficial Features

Also unlike bank loans, there are no monthly payments, no pre-payment penalties, and no pre-determined repayment date.

Lawsuit cash advances are simply repaid out of your settlement proceeds after you win your case.

In The Beginning

The foundational idea behind plaintiff legal funding is simple, straightforward, and well-intentioned.

Lawsuit loans are intended to help plaintiffs negotiate from a position of strength, rather than from a position of vulnerability, financial need, or desperation.

This is sometimes called “leveling the playing field”.

It is a well-known fact that insurance companies can be very tight-fisted when it comes to paying legitimate injury claims against their policyholders.

Sadly, many insurers have developed a reputation for taking advantage of and exploiting the financial circumstances of injury victims.

Delay, deception, and other dirty tricks can be used to force premature claims settlements.

Some of the more frequently-used tactics include:

  • Pretending to be your friend or your “advocate”
  • Witholding information they know would negatively implicate their policyholder
  • Offering money almost immediately to settle a claim quickly
  • “Low-ball” or “pennies-on-the-dollar” offers
  • Denying legitimate claims
  • Having you agree, in writing, to the release of medical files or history
  • Using your own words, often taken out of context, against you
  • Taking a recorded statement early, before you have retained an attorney
  • Having you sign, or e-sign, anything before your attorney has reviewed it

Regardless of tactics, the goal is always the same; compel vulnerable and financially-compromised claimants into accepting less-than-fair compensation for their injuries.

TriMark Legal Funding exists so you don’t have to fall prey to those sorts of tactics.
