Kentucky lawsuit funding is no longer available to help plaintiffs get the money they need to pay bills while their lawsuit is still pending or even after it is settled. But don’t worry; TriMark Legal Funding has you covered.
Legal Funding in Kentucky Is Prohibited By Law
Due to legislation passed by the state of Kentucky, TriMark Legal Funding is not able to offer pre settlement funding advances, pre settlement funding buy outs, settled case funding, or workers comp pre settlement loans to residents of the state of Kentucky. If the legislation ever changes and legal funding becomes available in Kentucky, we will update this page.
It’s OK though; we have an array of “non-legal-funding-related” financial alternatives for you!
For nearly two decades, TriMark Legal Funding has maintained a large network of private lenders that can provide a host of financial solutions to our clients who, like you, live in one of the states where legal funding is prohibited, restricted, or workers comp funding is not available.
Either that, or they got denied for funding, their case was ineligible for some reason, their attorney wouldn’t cooperate, they had too much prior funding to qualify, or they didn’t qualify for as much funding as they needed.
Whatever the circumstances, they all still need money desperately, just like you do, and we still want to help.
And here’s the thing: Our network of lenders works fast, they like to say ‘yes’ a lot, and they can work with all types of borrowers and all types of credit!

Why Is Lawsuit Funding Illegal In Kentucky?
Kentucky, like many other states, operates under specific laws and regulations when it comes to legal funding. However, unlike some states that allow for legal funding, Kentucky has imposed strict restrictions on this practice.
In Kentucky, the prohibition on legal funding is largely attributed to Kentucky SCR 3.130 (1.8). According to this law, it is illegal for non-attorneys to offer financial assistance to individuals involved in pending litigation, with the intent of collecting interest or profit from the transactions. The aim behind this law is to regulate the practice of legal funding, but unfortunately, it also limits access to much-needed financial support for those involved in legal disputes.
Legal funding, also known as a lawsuit settlement loan or pre-settlement funding, provides financial assistance to individuals in need while their legal cases are ongoing.
Kentucky’s restriction on legal funding under SCR 3.130 (1.8) creates a challenging situation for residents involved in ongoing legal disputes. By understanding the benefits that legal funding provides, such as access to justice, a level playing field, reduced stress, and preservation of personal finances, it becomes apparent that reconsidering the current law may be beneficial.
Striking a balance between regulation and access would allow individuals to navigate the legal system more equitably, empowering them to fight for their rights without undue financial strain.
Cases That Are Normally Eligible For Legal Funding
Some of the cases that legal funding is available on in other states include:
- Auto accident loans
- Workers comp settlement loans
- Civil rights legal funding
- Slip and fall accident funding
- Motor vehicle accident loans
- Medical malpractice lawsuits
- Workplace accident injuries
- Personal injury loans
- Lawsuits against employers
- FELA railroad worker injuries
- Sexual abuse lawsuit funding
Funding That Is Still Available In Kentucky
While pre-settlement lawsuit funding and post-settlement cash advances are both prohibited in Kentucky, TriMark does offer a variety of personal finance and business financing options, in addition to attorney post settlement funding and various types of law firm funding.
For heirs and beneficiaries to an estate in probate, i.e. those who are expecting to inherit some money, an inheritance loan on an inheritance near me can provide access to a generous portion of a beneficiary’s inheritance money immediately.
And for annuitants who receive periodic payments from structured settlements but could use a lump sum of cash, selling structured settlement payments for cash is an option.
The prohibition on external financing for lawsuits can pose significant challenges for individuals seeking financial assistance during their legal proceedings. Lawsuits are often lengthy and costly endeavors, leading to financial difficulties for plaintiffs who require immediate funds for medical bills, living expenses, or legal fees. The absence of lawsuit funding options may hinder individuals involved in legal disputes in Kentucky from obtaining the necessary resources to fully pursue their claims.
It’s worth mentioning that, despite the limitations on third-party lawsuit funding, there are alternative avenues available to plaintiffs in Kentucky. Those who need immediate funds can explore alternatives like personal loans, borrowing from acquaintances, or seeking support from charitable organizations. Additionally, attorneys may offer contingency fee arrangements, wherein they only receive payment if the case is successful. This arrangement helps alleviate some of the financial burden faced by plaintiffs.
