When waiting on a settlement from a lawsuit, sometimes it can take years to go through the court system and get a ruling. Unfortunately, your personal bills do not wait to be paid. If you are unable to work due to personal injuries sustained, there are options to assist you in paying your bills until you receive your settlement.
There are lawsuit financing services available. These are better than personal loans. You receive your money upfront and can use it how you see fit. So you can retain a lawyer and pay bills.
Most companies that offer the lawsuit settlement funding services do not even request any payments on the loan until after you have been awarded your settlement. There are others that do not ask for repayment if you do not receive any money. So it is important to shop around for the best lawsuit financing service for you.
The service will ask you to fill out paperwork. They will make a decision if you are approved and for how much money you are eligible to receive.
They use the type of lawsuit that you are filing, your damages and potential award of monies into consideration when making their decision.
These services do not verify employment, do credit checks or charge application fees unlike banks or other private lenders.
