POST SETTLEMENT FUNDING

Are you seeking financial assistance while waiting for your post-settlement funds or fees to arrive? Do you have a resolved case but you haven’t received the payment yet?  Then a post-settlement lawsuit loan may be right for you. Winning a settlement means that the case is over and in your favor. However, cashing out can take time. In some cases, getting your fair share can also take months or even years depending on various factors. Apply to qualify for post-settlement funding in less than a business day.

What is post-settlement funding?

Post-settlement funding is a risk-free financial program available to plaintiffs and attorneys after their litigation has reached a resolution. Even though settlement funding is commonly referred to as ‘settled case lawsuit loans or post-settlement loans,’ it is not a loan in any way. Settled case funding is only available as non-recourse, meaning there are no monthly payments and is free of risk because if the defendant defaults on the payment, you don’t have to repay the advance until you are able to collect. A post-settlement loan is a way to leverage your compensation or contingency fees by securing upfront capital against your upcoming settlement award. Post-settlement lawsuit funding helps attorneys and plaintiffs get the needed liquidity today.

Cash for settlements—FAQ's.

One of the most common misconceptions about winning a settlement is that the check will be sent immediately. The legal process for cases that already settled tends to get long and frustrating. On top of dealing with the legal procedure, plaintiffs have to also deal with their own financial demands. You must be wondering why there is a delay in the delivery of the settlement when you have already been awarded one legally. The following are some reasons that can cause a delay for a settlement to be paid to the plaintiff:

  • The judge’s formal approval is still pending;
  • Stalling investigations by the insurance;
  • Requesting documents no longer necessary for the claim;
  • Investigating and clearing liens;
  • There is more than one plaintiff in the case;
  • The size of the settlement/ratification of the terms of the payout.

The payment can also be delayed if the defense appeals to the decision of the court and takes the case to another level that involves long legal proceedings. This can cause the settlement to slow down on your payment for years. In addition to this, even if the case has been settled, you will still have to wait for the settlement to be approved by the court before the money can be distributed. 

While a client’s settlement payment is delayed, an attorney must also focus on other cases and manage the day to day expenditures of their firms. In the mid-time, the victim is desperate and calling you asking for help. Although the case has settled, your client still has costs, including rent or mortgages, evictions, electricity shut off notices, and other day-to-day living expenses that they might not be able to pay right away. In some cases, where the plaintiff is unable to work and support himself due to an injury or a wrongful conviction case, settled case funding can help him pay for his main needs while he works on getting back up with the necessary cash he needs today. A post-settlement litigation advance can temporarily put your client in a better financial position until they get paid in full.

Baker Street Funding provides plaintiffs and attorneys with settled cases a minimum of 12-hour post-settlement award advances. As soon as we receive the required documentation, and verify the details and validity of your settlement,  in exchange for a portion of your settlement payment, we will deliver you the advanced settlement funding as soon as 12 hours from the moment we receive all the required documentation. See the services we offer pre and post-settlement. So if you have a slow-paying settlement, call Baker Street Funding at (888) 711-3599 and get approved today. Our application process is fast and easy—and never has any shady hidden fees. 

While the United States’ legal system is in place to provide justice for those who have been wronged, the legal process does not always move quickly. A personal injury case can take many years to settle. Class actions and mass tort cases can take even longer because they usually span multiple jurisdictions, while commercial litigation is complex and lengthy.

Even after a case is settled, you may find yourself waiting a long time to see your money. Claims that are won in court sometimes require a review period or go through an appeal. Life keeps moving, and costs pile up for plaintiffs and law firms while they wait for the defendant to pay. Settled case legal funding is a non-recourse loan option available to attorneys and plaintiffs who have settled claims but have not been paid yet. A post-settlement loan is an ideal option for anyone waiting to receive compensation from their litigation. 

Our investment in your case has no risk to you. This means that we accept all the risk, and you are exempt from the debt if your case runs into complications and your award or fees never arrive. Non-recourse funding for settled litigations differs from a loan in two ways:

 

  1. The first difference is that we invest in a portion of your settlement, for plaintiffs, things like credit, job status, and income verification do not factor into our analysis.
  2. The second difference is that if the defendant doesn’t pay you due to bankruptcy or any other reason, the loan will be automatically forgiven by the legal funding firm.

The repayment process is simple. After the attorney receives the settlement monies, he or she will deduct our advance proceeds from the eventual settlement payment and we will be paid back the portion we are due by the attorney.

Are you requesting post-settlement financing for yourself or for a client? What we will need:

  1. A copy of the fully executed settlement agreement; 
  2. Amount of funding requested;
  3. A copy of the general release letter between the plaintiff and insurer. 

 

Please provide the required document(s) needed and fax to (518) 500-3056, or email to info@bakerstreetfunding.com

Or, better yet, call us at (888) 711-3599 for more information

The process is extremely simple and normally finalized inside of one business day. Baker Street Funding will simply purchase a portion of the settlement award based on our analysis of the settlement agreement. After our underwriter reviews your case documents, they will generate a contract for the client and/or attorney to sign. Once completed, our funding company will execute that lien and distribute the funds by bank wire or certified check.

Settled case lawsuit funding acts as a lifeline for plaintiffs and attorneys alike, giving them access to capital that they otherwise could not get from a traditional financial institution. Settlement advances enable plaintiffs and attorneys early access to their future receivables empowers them to make sure they are making sound financial and business decisions and not handcuffed by a long processing time of a settlement award.

To receive a post-settlement loan, there are certain requirements that you need to satisfy. Firstly, only plaintiffs and attorneys can receive post-settlement funding and not a defendant. Secondly, you need to have a successful claim and must be entitled to receive a monetary settlement. 

 

  1. Plaintiffs: Your case must have settled for $50,000 or more, you must be over 18 years of age, and you must have an attorney retained on contingency.
  2. Attorneys: Please call us to speak about how much we can provide you. Attorney funding can go up to 50% of the settled amount.

Post-settlement funding is different from pre-settlement funding, as this form of funding comes after the case has been settled or closed by the judge. Once the case is settled, pre-settlement funding ends, however in most cases, money is still needed, and that is where post-settlement financing comes into play, especially if there is an expected delay in the deposit of the funds from the insurance company.

Our services ensure that you can still receive an advance before the time checks are sent out. We don’t want you waiting for your case reward while the defendant takes his time to pay what they owe you. 

We provide loans to a variety of settlement cases.

Baker Street Funding will fund any type of settlement. Below are a few of the most recent types of cases commonly qualified for settlement loans, including but not limited to:

Our settled case funding commitment.

While many legal funding companies within the industry offer financing for settled cases, many do not provide the high amounts the client or attorney is requesting. Most legal finance firms focus on either pre-settlement loans due to the magnitude of demand for funding in this field. Yet, there is still a demand for advances on post-settlements for attorneys and their clients due to some cases involving a long settlement pay wait. Baker Street Funding has committed to focusing a portion of its business exclusively on cash for settlements. At Baker Street Funding, we focus on settled case advances, which provide a higher funding amount as quickly as possible thanks to our efficient underwriters and investment success in the field.
