Lawsuit Loans And Cash Advance Options | TriMark Legal Funding

Lawsuit loans are one solution for plaintiffs with financial needs who cannot wait for months or years on a settlement. They help you cover essential living expenses and enable you to hold out for the best possible settlement while you await trial.

What is a Lawsuit Loan?

Despite the name, a lawsuit loan is not a traditional loan at all. It is a cash advance provided by a funding company based on the expected settlement from a pending lawsuit. When you apply for a lawsuit cash advance, the funding company evaluates your case and provides a certain amount of money to you based on their estimated value of your legal claim. One of the most attractive features about lawsuit loans is that if you do not win your lawsuit, you do not have to repay the money that you received from the funding company.

“If you do not win your lawsuit, you do not have to repay the lawsuit loan you received from the funding company.”

Why Should You Consider Getting a Lawsuit Cash Advance?

If you need money but are still waiting for your case to resolve, getting a lawsuit loan could be your best option. Here are some of the reasons you might want to consider a lawsuit settlement loan:

No Compensation Until Settlement or Verdict

When you are injured in an accident, you may need to file a lawsuit to recover damages for lost wages, medical bills, or other harm resulting from your injuries. However, even if your lawsuit is successful, you will not receive any financial compensation until the case settles or concludes after a verdict.

Trials Often Take Longer Than Expected

Plaintiffs are often surprised at how long a trial can take. Model standards proposed by the National Center for State Courts suggested that 90% of general civil cases should take up to a year from start to finish. However, these standards are only guidelines. In reality, many civil cases are not resolved until 12-18 months after they are filed. Procedural rules, extended discovery periods, and scheduling conflicts can all cause delays.

“Plaintiffs may face financial difficulties during long trials since they can’t collect damages until the case is settled or a verdict has been reached.”

Job or Income Loss

Plaintiffs who have been injured in an accident or involved in a workplace dispute often lose their jobs and the ability to earn money for themselves.

Need for Longer Recovery Time

While your lawsuit is pending, work may be difficult due to lingering injuries. A lawsuit loan gives you time to receive the medical treatment you need and recover from your injuries rather than rushing back to work too soon.

Need to Get Better Settlement

Lawsuit loans give you the time and flexibility so your attorney can negotiate a fair settlement.

Inability to Access Other Sources of Funding

Traditional loans and credit cards all involve a credit score check and good credit scores. This can be problematic for people who have fallen behind on their bills, causing their credit scores to take a hit. There may also be application fees and lots of paperwork to fill out. With a lawsuit loan, you can qualify regardless of your credit score, and the application process is fast, free, and easy.

Compounding Financial Problems

Mortgage or rent, utility bills, car payments, medical bills, and all your other expenses have to be paid whether or not you have received your settlement. Getting behind on your financial obligations can have a snowball effect and lead to serious consequences like foreclosures, evictions, vehicle repossessions, and even bankruptcy.  Lawsuit loans can help you avoid these undesirable outcomes.

Can You Get a Lawsuit Loan for a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury cases are one of the most common types of general civil litigation. Personal injury lawsuits can arise from a wide variety of situations including car accidents, slip-and-fall incidents, dog bites, assault and battery, and medical malpractice cases.

To recover damages, a plaintiff must first file the lawsuit. In order to qualify for a lawsuit loan, you must be represented by a contingent fee attorney. The attorney will file the lawsuit on your behalf in state or federal court depending on your claims.

Once the case is filed, it triggers a series of procedural rules and deadlines. However, these deadlines may be adjusted due to scheduling problems or other issues, causing the case to take longer. According to survey data, only 21% of personal injury cases are resolved within one month of the case being filed. Another 27% are resolved within six months of the filing date. However, the remaining 52% of cases take up to a year or more before a settlement or verdict is reached.

As the cases drag on, some of the plaintiffs involved in these cases may lose their jobs due to their injuries or may need extra money to pay for medical care or past bills. However, they will not receive damages unless they receive a favorable settlement. A pre-settlement loan allows these plaintiffs to gain advance access to their future settlement or award to solve their current financial problems.
