When that injury is caused by someone else’s negligence, such as medical malpractice or an auto accident, you can pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. But your medical bills won’t wait for the settlement to come in or for a successful verdict.

Thousands of plaintiffs in the United States are stuck in this “limbo” where the cost of previous and ongoing treatment keeps piling up while attorneys work diligently to build compelling cases. The average American doesn’t have the financial stability to weather a time like this, which is why pre-settlement funding, or a lawsuit cash advance, can help in the interim.

Speak with Your Attorney About Your Pre-Settlement Funding Options

It’s a crucial part of the process that you speak with your attorney about pre-settlement funding. He or she may have a history with several businesses and be able to tell you what to watch for or who they recommend. Your attorney knows the strengths and weaknesses of your case as well as your current financial circumstances. They can help you come up with the appropriate amount to ask for when seeking pre-settlement funding. 

Some lawsuit lending companies require attorneys to fill out lengthy applications for injured plaintiffs. Legal Capital Corp requires just a few key documents to ascertain the potential to win your personal injury case. We partner with attorneys and legal firms across the United States. 

Weigh Your Lawsuit Cash Advance Choices & Watch for Hidden Fees

There are countless options for lawsuit loans, and not all have your best interests in mind. Be wary of businesses that charge an application fee and are not upfront about the full cost of the cash advance. High-interest rates and hidden fees can quickly double or triple a small loan. Your cash advance should not exceed 15-20 percent of the estimated worth of your personal injury settlement.
