About Pre-Settlement Funding
Lawsuits are expensive and time consuming. Getting your day in court can take months or even years, and in some cases, this is only just the start of a long process. If you suffered an injury or a loss you may need money to help cover expenses such as rent, utilities, and medical bills. Until you get the money you deserve, you need to find a way to pay for these bills on your own. Before you check the limit on your credit card or start calling your friends and family, contact Express Funding about pre-settlement funding. If your case qualifies, you can get a cash advance upfront.
What Is Pre-Settlement Funding?
Pre-settlement funding is when a company provides you with money upfront in exchange for a portion of your expected future settlement proceeds. Then, once your case is settled, the company receives the portion they purchased. Simply put, they are giving you money now in exchange for a payment after you settle.
If your injury keeps you out of work, or prevents you from working as often, you do not have that stable paycheck to help you cover bills. During a lawsuit that prevents a plaintiff from working, it may be difficult for you to keep current on payments. Whether you pay your bills on credit cards and start carrying more debt, or you are forced to go into default and skip payments, settling your claim could have a long-term impact on your finances. Pre-settlement funding can help you avoid going into debt.
Pre-settlement funding is not a loan. You are not borrowing money from a company that you must pay back over a set number of years. Instead, you are selling a portion of your future settlement proceeds in exchange for an advance.
How Much Can I Get?
How much you are eligible to receive depends on the estimated value of your case. We can connect you with companies that may be able to provide you with as little as $300 and as much as $750,000, depending on your needs and the expected outcome of your claim.
What If I Need More Cash Later?
Depending on the details of your lawsuit, you may be able to get more than one advance. In many cases, you can sell a maximum of between 15-20% of what the company offering the advance estimates your final settlement could come to, after any legal or attorney fees are paid. This number depends on several different factors, so the number can differ between various companies offering pre-settlement funding. If your initial pre-settlement advance was insufficient, you may be able to receive another advance if your case qualifies. If you are interested in learning what options are available, call today.
