The same streets you walk down every day can suddenly become the scene of a horrific pedestrian accident. Over 150,000 pedestrians received emergency treatment for non-fatal injuries related to car crashes in 2014. Over 4,000 pedestrians died as a result of automobile crashes during that same period. Pedestrian injuries can be life changing, causing life-long medical problems and permanent disabilities. Awaiting a settlement in a pedestrian accident case can be a long process, since insurance companies do their best to reduce the settlement amount you are due and increase the amount of time your case takes to settle. If you are currently a plaintiff in a legal stand off with an insurance company, you may qualify for pedestrian accident lawsuit funding. You may be able to receive an advance on your settlement to ease your financial hardships while you’re case moves towards settlement.
Recovering from a pedestrian accident can take years and involve physical therapy and surgery and some people are left with permanent disabilities. Common injuries involve the lower extremities, spine, pelvis, head, and neck, and many are quite complex. Keeping your job while recuperating is usually not an option, especially in the event of a severe accident. During this time period, insurance companies have no interest in settling, and some companies offer ridiculously low amounts in hopes of settling for less than you deserve while keeping their costs low. With pedestrian accident lawsuit funding, you can reject an offer that doesn't do your injury justice. This funding advance opportunity gives you a portion of your proceeds now, so you can show the insurance company you won’t back down from the settlement amount you deserve.
Pedestrian accident lawsuit funding is available regardless of your credit or employment history, since it is not a loan. The money you receive is advanced to you based on your future final settlement. You don't repay anything until you win your case – and you pay nothing if you don't win. You can use the money for expenses you have now, whether that's mortgage payments, rent, utilities, groceries, or any other financial needs.
