Who Needs Post Settlement Case Funding?
Many plaintiffs assume they will receive the check for their settled case as soon as they sign the settlement agreement.
But unless you’re working directly with the insurance company, without an attorney, it doesn’t work like that.
You should count on there being post settlement processing delays.
Depending on your type of case, your attorney, outstanding bills and medical liens, and the defendant’s insurance company, it can take from several weeks to several months (and sometimes many months) of post settlement processing for the settlement money to hit your bank account.
Settled case funding can provide the money you need to pay bills and keep your head above water while you wait for your settlement to be finalized.
Post settlement lawsuit loans can bridge the gap between the time you agree to settle your case and the day when you actually receive your money.
Do You Qualify For Post Settlement Funding?
Qualifying for a cash advance on pending lawsuit settlements is simple:
✔️ Are you represented by a contingent-fee attorney?
✔️ Has your attorney already settled your case?
✔️ Have you already signed the settlement agreement?
✔️ Do you need some of your money right now?
If you answered ‘yes’ to all four then it should be no problem for you to qualify for post settlement funding.
It only takes a minute to get the ball rolling and processing happens very quickly. And if you’re in a hurry, you could receive cash in just a few hours!

The Post Settlement Process
The endless procession of motions, filings, pleadings, depositions, demurrers, expert testimony, negotiations, and constant legal jockeying is finally over. So now what?
After agreeing to settle, all outstanding medical bills and any other liens and payables are confirmed, negotiated down if possible, and finalized. Once that’s finished, the settlement agreement and release of claim documents are drafted, proofed, approved, and finalized.
Once everything is ready, all parties will execute the agreement. And then there is usually a long waiting period where the insurance company drags it’s feet.
After they finally release your check, it will be deposited into your attorney’s trust account. Most law firms will wait at least 10 business days for the check to clear before disbursing any funds.
Attorney fees and cases costs come out first, then medical liens and any other liens including the legal funding payback, and then you get a check for everything that’s left.
