How it works.

The funding process with Baker Street Funding is extremely simple and typically finalized fast. To get funding for a settlement or an award, first, apply with Baker Street Funding. Before you get the money, we will secure your advance with a third-party lien on the future proceeds of your case, where you’ll repay both the principal and agreed-upon rate of return once your settlement (award) pays out. 

Settlement funding process 1

Apply

The first step is to apply by calling 888-711-3599 or apply online. If you are an attorney, have all documents ready for underwriting to take on the case if interest is expressed. If you are a plaintiff, ensure your attorney sends the case documentation when we contact them.

Upon receiving the requested documents regarding the claim, our underwriters will review the case, including the fully executed settlement agreement if the case is settled.

Money

Once you sign your funding agreement, we will execute that lien and distribute the funds by bank wire or certified check. We could release up to 50% of the fee to the attorney and up to 20% of the settlement for plaintiffs.

Ways to use the money.

You can use settlement funding to cover almost any purpose. Get low interest rates to help you meet your financial needs.

Access your fees before you receive them

For attorneys, you can access your future receivables, which can empower you to make sure you are making sound financial and business decisions and are not handcuffed by an extended processing time of a settlement or an award. Pay for the cost of new contingency cases that have come in as well as payroll and other business costs.

Get settlement money while awaiting payment

For plaintiffs, you can get the lifeline you need to gain access to funds you otherwise could not get from a traditional financial institution. Legal funding can enable personal injury plaintiffs to catch up on past-due bills and pay for any living expenses and medical bills necessary to survive. For commercial litigation claimants, settlement funding can help you pay business-related costs and more.

FAQ.

Settlement funding (also called legal funding, lawsuit settlement advances, loans for lawsuits or lawsuit loans) is a non-recourse loan contract between you and a settlement lender where you receive a portion of your expected proceeds today and pay it back once you receive your settlement check or jury award after the case is resolved. 

Settlement funding does not work like traditional bank loans because there are no payments at all until the settlement or jury verdict is paid.

Furthermore, all funding agreements are non-recourse for both claimants and lawyers, which means you don’t have to provide collateral (like your home or car). Plus, there are no credit or income checks for plaintiffs.

Settlement funding is tailored for each individual case and is utilized by both attorneys and plaintiffs to secure upfront capital. 

Qualifying for the lowest rates is dependent on your case approval, settlement value, and other factors.

Every legal funding company has its own methods of evaluating cases and determining rates. One rule of thumb is the stronger your case, the lower your rates will be. However, this is only true with legitimate settlement funding companies.

With Baker Street Funding, you can secure low-interest rates starting at 2% monthly for attorneys and 2.95% per month for plaintiffs. We also provide caps that help you save over the life of the loan if your case takes longer than three years to resolve or pay.

Achieving a settlement in a personal injury lawsuit is seen as a big win by plaintiffs. Most attorneys know that while a settlement is a milestone, it is by no means the end of the road. Settlement payments sometimes take months or years to reach the plaintiff due to processing issues, liquidity problems, appeals, or even settlement terms. In the meantime, the attorney must focus on other cases and manage the firm’s day-to-day expenses.

Plaintiffs also have costs, including rent or mortgages, utilities, and other daily living expenses, that they might not be able to cover.

Legal funding exists as a way to leverage a settlement, award, or fee before the case wins. It helps attorneys and plaintiffs get the liquidity they need today. 

While eligibility criteria can vary by funders, here are a few legal funding requirements you’ll likely need to meet:

  • Strong case: Most funding companies prefer to work with borrowers that can show they have strong cases. While several lenders also offer lawsuit loans for cases with a low value, these loans will generally come with extremely higher interest rates than claims valued at over $50,000.

  • Attorney cooperation: When a lender reviews your application, they want to see that you will win your case and repay your loan. No matter how good your lawsuit is or how valuable your settlement is, the attorney in charge of the claim has to talk to the funding company to confirm important details of the case.

The time it takes to approve legal funding depends on the settlement lender. For example, with a legitimate company, you can often fill out an application and receive a qualification within hours. 

 You can typically expect the following funding times:

Attorneys: 72 hours

Plaintiffs: 48 hours

Baker Street Funding provides non-recourse loans for accident claims and almost every personal injury lawsuit. We also fund employment and civil rights cases as long as they are strong enough to win. 

Other criteria will apply before making a final funding decision.
