Legal Funding For Workers Compensation

Workers comp lawsuit loans are designed to give immediate financial relief to plaintiffs who were injured on the job, are behind on bills, and are waiting patiently for their attorneys to finish negotiating their workers compensation settlements.

Workers Comp Lawsuit Loans

Workers Comp Loans

A lot of injured workers fall behind on bills; it’s not at all uncommon. It makes sense too, because workers comp only pays a maximum of 2/3 of an injured worker’s weekly paycheck.

Without a cash advance for workers comp claims to help offset those lost wages, it can be a back-breaker that sets people back for years.

Why? Because the simple fact is that most household budgets can’t afford to take a 33% pay cut, literally overnight, and then continue to maintain the same standard of living as before.

The Long, Hard Road To A Workers Comp Settlement

Consider this; it takes an average of 18 to 24 months to negotiate a workers comp settlement. Your lawyers said you have a strong case. They also said you need to be patient.

But when you’re living it day-to-day, eyeballs-deep in debt, teetering on an eviction, with creditors calling around the clock, 24 months can feel like F-O-R-E-V-E-R.

For a lot of people, it can be a crushing burden just to cover their basic living expenses each month. And now, with skyrocketing inflation, the price of everything going through the roof, $6+ a gallon for gas, and well, you get the picture.

Adding insult to injury, that little voice in the back of your mind keeps reminding you that missed and late payments are the #1 leading cause of bad credit.

And with bad credit, of course, it will be virtually impossible – for years after your settlement has been resolved – to get a mortgage or HELOC, car loans, credit cards, or anything else you’re going to need to move on with your life.

Finally…A Loan For People On Workers Compensation

When you’re injured, out of work, out of money, and behind on bills, landlords, banks, and other creditors are not your friends.

More to the point, they do not care about your problems. They want their money, period. On-time. Every time. Or else.

This is when workers compensation settlement funding from TriMark can be a real lifesaver.

Cash Advances For Workers Comp Claims

Phrases like “pre-settlement loans” and “workers comp lawsuit loans” get thrown around a lot, but they’re something of a misnomer.

That’s because the money that TriMark Legal Funding provides to plaintiffs isn’t really a loan* at all.

Instead, it is an outcome-contingent, non-credit-based cash advance on workers comp settlement proceeds, and only plaintiffs can get them.

Better Than A Bank

Workers comp pre-settlement funding has a number of powerful characteristics. Not the least of which is the fact that it completely ignores the standard go/no-go creditworthiness test used by banks before they loan money to someone (commonly known as “The 5 C’s“).

All other benefits notwithstanding, this fact alone makes workers comp lawsuit funding a far superior option for injured plaintiffs when compared to traditional banks and lending institutions.

Workers Compensation Loans vs Bank Loans

If you’re recovering from a work-related injury, are behind on your bills, and need money like, yesterday, you’re in the right place.

For qualified applicants, workers comp lawsuit loans are exponentially easier to get and the approval process is far more user-friendly than turning to a bank for help.

Here are a few important differences:

Bank Loans Require:

☑️ Good to excellent credit
☑️ Verifiable income
☑️ Verifiable employment
☑️ Real estate collateral
☑️ Monthly payments
☑️ Repayment, no matter what

Workers Comp Lawsuit Loans:

✅ Bad credit is OK
✅ No income is OK
✅ Unemployed is OK
✅ Your case is the collateral
✅ No co-signor
✅ No monthly payments
✅ Only repay if you win

Is It Hard To Get Workers Comp Lawsuit Loans?

Give us a call at (877) 932-2628 or send us a message if you don’t find an answer to your questions.


What Is A Workers Comp Lawsuit Loan?

A workers comp loan is a fast, risk-free, easy-to-qualify-for, non-recourse cash advance on workers comp settlement proceeds that a claimant expects to receive at the conclusion of settlement negotiations or litigation.

They are not credit-based and they are only available to injured workers with accepted workers comp claims in qualifying states who are currently represented by a contingent-fee attorney.

Approval is based on the strength and merits of the claim rather than the creditworthiness of the borrower. Repayment is only required if the underlying case is resolved successfully. If it isn’t, the borrower has no obligation to repay the advance.

How Much Does Workers Compensation Settlement Funding Cost?

Pre-settlement funding rates and terms may vary but our workers comp loan rates are typically below 3% monthly.

Can I Get A Loan While On Workers Comp?

It’s fast, easy, and FREE to apply.

It only takes a minute to complete a brief application and then we’ll take it from there.

If you reside and were injured in AK, CT, FL, LA, MO, MT, OH, OK, RI, TN, WA, or WY and you have an accepted workers comp claim and a contingent fee attorney is negotiating your settlement, you can apply online or call (877) 932-2628 and we’ll take your application right over the phone.

We’ll contact your attorney to confirm some details about your case and after you’re approved, funds can be sent by ACH, wire transfer, FedEx Overnight, or Western Union/MoneyGram.

How Much Workers Compensation Lawsuit Funding Can I Get?

Settlement loans for workers comp claims can range from $500 to $50,000+.

The amount you are approved for will depend on how much you need, how developed your case is, the extent and severity of your injuries, and other factors.

Are Workers Comp Lawsuit Loans Available In My State?

It depends what state you’re in.

Legal funding for workers compensation claims is only available to plaintiffs who reside in, and were injured in, the following 12 states: Alaska, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington, or Wyoming.

With only one exception, if your state is not in this list, you are not eligible for a workers comp settlement loan.

What Is The “One Exception”?

If you have a third-party liability lawsuit in addition to your workers comp claim, we can consider that case for lawsuit funding.

A third-party liability lawsuit is a civil lawsuit that is filed separately from your workers comp claim but the injury occurred during the same accident.

❇️ Example: You were using a poorly-maintained piece of hydraulic equipment at work. The equipment failed due to the lack of manufacturer-recommended maintenance and you got seriously injured as a result. You file a workers comp claim because you were injured at work. You also file a premises liability lawsuit against your employer for failure to properly maintain the equipment, which is the negligence that caused the unsafe work environment to begin with.

Other examples include auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, construction accidents, crane accidents, heavy equipment accidents, scaffolding accidents, tractor trailer accident case funding, product liability lawsuits, or premises liability lawsuits that your attorney is pursuing on your behalf, in addition to your workers comp claim.

Call us at (877) 932-2628 if you are unclear about this exception.

What Does “100% Risk-Free” and “Non-Recourse” Mean As They Pertain To Settlement Loans For Workers Comp?

It means that repayment of the cash advance is only required if the workers comp claim results in a settlement.

❇️ If the case is resolved successfully, the advance is repaid out of your settlement proceeds.
❇️ If the case is lost or doesn’t settle, you have no obligation to repay the advance.


It also means that if the case is not resolved successfully, the lender has no legal recourse against the borrower to compel repayment of the advance.

As such, the legal funding company assumes 100% of the risk for repayment and makes the transaction 100% risk-free to the borrower.

Don’t Banks Offer A Personal Loan On Workers Compensation Claims?

No.

Banks simply do not understand the latent monetary value of future workers comp settlements.

For personal loans, banks require excellent credit scores, unencumbered real estate as collateral, verifiable employment and income, and the ability to make regular monthly payments.

Most workers comp recipients are unable to satisfy those requirements.

Will Workers Compensation Settlement Funding Show Up On My Credit Reports?

No.

Cash advances on workers comp settlements are never reported to credit bureaus.

Can I Still Get A Cash Advance On A Workers Comp Settlement If I Have Bad Credit?

Yes.

Workers comp lawsuit loans are approved or denied based on the strengths and merits of your case; not how high or low your credit score.

Do You Buyout Workers Compensation Loans from Other Funders?

No.

TriMark will not do a prior funding buyout on any existing workers comp settlement advances from any other funders. To our knowledge, no other legal funding company will do that either.

Can I Get More Than One Workers Comp Loan?

As a general rule, no.

Exceptions have occasionally been made under certain circumstances on a case-by-case basis.

When you receive your first workers comp cash advance through a company other than TriMark Legal Funding, you will need to go back to that company. TriMark will not buy out or fund additional on that contract.

If you received your first settlement advance through TriMark, our underwriters will review a number of factors before they approve an additional cash advance on your workers comp settlement including, but not limited to:

❇️ How much did you receive with your first cash advance?
❇️ What is the estimated net settlement value of your case?
❇️ How long has it been since you got your last advance?
❇️ Have you reached maximum medical improvement (MMI)?
❇️ Has there been any significant new developments on the case since your last cash advance?
❇️ How long until your settlement agreement is finalized?

Can I Get Workers Comp Loans In California?

No.

TriMark does not currently offer a workers comp settlement advance in California, and to our knowledge, no other legal funding companies offer them either.

Are Workers Compensation Loans in New York Available?

No.

Workers comp settlement advances in New York are not available. To our knowledge, no other lawsuit loan companies offer them either.

Can I Get Workers Comp Loans in Pennsylvania?

No.

TriMark does not currently offer workers comp loans in PA, and to our knowledge, no other lawsuit funding companies offer them either.

Are Workers Comp Loans in Illinois Available?

No.

TriMark does not currently offer workers comp loans in Illinois, and to our knowledge, no other legal funding companies offer them either.

Why Isn’t Workers Compensation Lawsuit Funding Available In My State?

It depends on the state.

Some (AR, DC, KY, MD, and WV) simply prohibit legal funding altogether. Among the remaining states, the most common reason is that the settlement check gets sent directly from the insurance company to the claimant rather than being sent to the attorney.

To be eligible for legal funding, however, the settlement check must be deposited into the attorney’s trust account first and then funds are disbursed to the claimant from there.

I Was Injured At Work And My Employer Had General Liability Insurance, But Didn’t Carry Workers Comp Insurance. Can I Still Get A Lawsuit Cash Advance?

In all likelihood, yes, assuming you incurred significant injuries and there is clear liability against a sufficiently-insured defendant and you are represented by a contingent fee attorney.

TriMark provides pre-settlement funding (lawsuit loans) and post-settlement funding (settled case funding) on virtually all types of personal injury lawsuits, employment litigation, and workplace injury claims.

I’m Handling My Workers Comp Claim Myself, Without An Attorney. Can I Still Get A Cash Advance?

No.

Without exception, you must be represented by a contingent fee attorney to qualify for any kind of legal funding, including workers comp advances.

Is Workers Comp Pre Settlement Funding Available On Federal Workers Compensation Claims?

No.

TriMark Legal Funding only offers cash advances on state workers comp settlements.

Can I Get A Workers Comp Loan On My Jones Act Lawsuit?

No.

Maritime workers are not covered under workers comp. They must seek injury compensation under the Jones Act.

Learn how to get pre-settlement funding on a Jones Act Lawsuit.

Can Injured Railroad Employees Get Workers Comp Lawsuit Loans?

No.

Railroad employees are also not covered under workers compensation and must seek injury compensation under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA).

Learn how to get legal funding on FELA lawsuit settlements.

    Workers Compensation In The News…

    Worker’s compensation is a type of insurance that covers employees injured on the job. It can also cover those injured or deceased while driving a company vehicle or during company-related training. Workers’ compensation insurance benefits can cover the income that an injured worker would have made while unable to work. It can also pay for medical bills, rehabilitation, and other expenses due to the injury. This type of insurance only applies to those who have been injured in a workplace accident. Workers’ Compensation Laws Workers’ compensation insurance is required by law in most U.S. states. However, the legal framework can change between states. To learn if you qualify for benefits in your state, consult a specialized local lawyer. If you suffered a workplace injury in Houston, Texas attorneys can help protect your interest while filing for benefits. A legal expert can also help you negotiate with the insurance company.

    A Chicago woman working as a concierge recently suffered a bite from a resident's dog. With the help of attorney Paul Greenberg, she recovered $185,000 in compensation for her injury and related expenses. Many Chicago residents live in buildings staffed by a concierge. The concierge provides several services to residents. Like other Chicago professionals, a concierge has a right to a reasonably safe working environment – including a workplace free of the risk of being bitten by a wayward pet dog. One role of a concierge is to help keep building residents safe. To do this work, the concierge must have a safe work environment. The threat of a dog bite from a resident’s dog undermines a concierge’s safety, which hinders the concierge’s ability to do their job well. Illinois law places a duty on dog owners to prevent their dogs from biting or causing injury to others. When a… Read more
    Workers’ compensation insurer Erie Insurance Group must pay for weight-loss surgery for an obese woman who was injured at her child-care center, the North Carolina Court of Appeals decided this week. The appeals court upheld the North Carolina Industrial Commission’s 2021 award of benefits to Robin Kluttz-Ellison, owner of Noah’s Playloft, a preschool in Salisbury. After the woman fell twice and injured her knees, doctors testified that she needed knee surgery. But before she could have the surgery, Kluttz-Ellison needed to lose a considerable amount of weight, her doctors said. After multiple, unsuccessful attempts to lose weight, the woman and her physicians said that gastric bypass surgery was her only option, and the full Industrial Commission agreed. Erie Insurance appealed, arguing that the obesity was a pre-existing condition and that bariatric surgery was not directly related to the claimant’s compensable injury. The Court of Appeals ruled against the insurer. “By… Read more
    If you have filed a claim for worker’s compensation or if you are an employer who has had an employee file for worker’s comp, you may be aware that investigators will check out the facts surrounding the claim. Workers’ compensation investigators ensure that the claims paid out by the insurance company are valid. There are certain techniques they use to ensure the integrity of the victim’s report, including in-person, video, and social media surveillance. Video Surveillance One of the most common techniques that worker’s compensation investigators use is video surveillance. They use this to ensure that your injuries are as severe as you claim. Suppose you claim that you have fallen and suffered a herniated disk, making walking difficult. If the investigator films you lifting … Read more
    You've been injured on the job. Now what? No matter the severity of your injury, workers' compensation can help cover medical bills and wages lost due to your injury, as long as you file a claim within the appropriate amount of time and with sufficient information. In order to be eligible for a claim, your injury will need to fall under one or more specific circumstances, including: injury by accident, a specific traumatic injury or an occupational illness or disease. If you're hospitalized, miss work, need surgery, have a head injury or lose consciousness due to your injury, then your injury is serious enough for a claim. Workers should ensure they understand the rules of workers' compensation and who they should report their injury to so … Read more
    Workers’ compensation insurers have slashed spending on opioids, reducing the risk of addiction and delayed recovery, but now they are under increasing pressure to reimburse injured workers for a new kind of elixir. Six states now allow or require insurers to reimburse workers’ compensation claimants for medical marijuana if its use is deemed reasonable and necessary, according to an analysis by researchers for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the Workers’ Compensation Research Institute. Another 10 states haven’t staked out a position, meaning marijuana reimbursement may eventually be required. The NIOSH paper also says there is little scientific evidence to support “the lengthy list of state-sanctioned qualifying health conditions” that marijuana is used to treat. A 2017 review of scientific literature by … Read more
    A federal court in Kansas on Tuesday ruled the parents of a worker who died of conditions related to his opioid use in connection with a workplace injury, chronic pain and subsequent depression can’t sue a workers compensation insurer or the third-party administrator over allegations that they were negligent in delaying approval for medical care. The man in 2017 suffered multiple disc herniations in his neck, which led to radiating pain in his limbs in his work for pet food company Big Heart Pet Brands Inc., which provided nonsurgical “conservative treatment” for his injury under its workers comp insurance plan, according to documents in Civil Action No. 21-2047-KHV, filed in the United States District Court, District of Kansas, in Kansas City….

    Worker’s compensation insurance offers employees compensation for injuries or disabilities which they have developed during a workplace accident. It covers medical expenses, a portion of lost wages and rehabilitation. The workers compensation settlement can either be a lump sum settlement or a structured payment plan. While these are general facts about worker’s compensation, there are other facts you might not know. Given below are some surprising facts about worker’s compensation. Wisconsin Was The First State To Pass The Worker’s Compensation Law The Worker’s Accident Insurance Act which was passed in 1884 is a modern worker’s compensation system compared to the Employer’s Liability Law of 1871. The latter gave limited protection to workers only in certain … Read more
    Workplace accidents are a common occurrence. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), in 2019, more than 4,500 people died from workplace accidents and another 4.6 million employees suffered an on-the-job injury. In New Jersey alone, more than 69,000 workers were hurt on the job. After a New Jersey workplace accident, injured employees will be able to pursue a claim for workers’ compensation to help them cover the costs related to the accident. Most people are familiar with a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation claims can provide payment of medical bills, income replacement benefits while you are out of work, and payment for partial or permanent disability. However, while workers’ compensation claims offer the above benefits, they do not allow injured workers to recover for … Read more
    While you can receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits and workers’ compensation for the same disability, the amount of workers’ compensation can reduce your SSDI. That's true whether you are getting workers’ comp in installments or as a lump-sum settlement. In a lump-sum settlement, you agree to give up certain rights so that you can receive a onetime payment, instead of collecting your benefit award over time. There are a number of reasons you might do this. For example, if a claim is in dispute, you may want to avoid the time and stress of an administrative hearing or court case and a possible adverse ruling. Or your employer's insurance company may offer to pay now if you waive future compensation for medical expenses arising… Read more
