Pre-settlement legal funding

What is pre-settlement funding?

Pre-settlement funding (legal funding) is a financial option that allows you to get a cash advance from your case before it settles. Lawsuit funding is also known as a non-recourse lawsuit loan or a risk-free cash advance on your case that gets paid once your claims settles.

All lawsuit funding from Baker Street Legal Funding is non-recourse, meaning they are no-collateral lawsuit loans with a no-win no-pay guarantee. Our loans don’t require you to put up items you own, such as your car or home, to qualify for the advance. Plus, there are also no income verification or credit pulls. Additionally, you repay our loan with an added interest rate when you receive compensation in your personal injury case.

Approval of a pre-settlement loan is typically quick and only requires an evaluation of your legal case and the ability to win and pay back the cash advance. 

With a few exceptions, you can use a pre-settlement cash advance for almost any purpose, such as daily expenses or medical bills. One of the ways you cannot use it includes anything related to financing current litigation.

FAQ.

The legal funding process length varies from 24-48 hours from when your lawyer sends your case file. 

However, a huge factor that can delay your application is if your attorney does not respond to our request.

Potential settlement borrowers should ensure their attorneys are communicative during the funding process because the longer your lawyer takes to respond, the longer the process will be. 

Baker Street Funding has excellent attorney relationships all over the United States and understands that legal representation is busy working on getting the best possible outcome for you. However, you cannot get a pre-settlement loan without an attorney or their cooperation.

If your lawyer needs to find out who we are, we can contact them after you fill out your application. With our initial conversation, we can get the funding process moving fast.

To understand how much cash you should borrow, first realize how much money you need. Once you figure out precisely the amount you need, only take enough money to cover those primary needs.

Pre-settlement loans help you cope with financial challenges during litigation or a legal claim. Although you may get approved for a significant amount, only take out what you need to keep you afloat. You can constantly re-apply.

The funding amount you can take out depends on the value of your case, and they can go up to 10% of that value. Approval amounts range from $1,500 up to $2,000,000 or more.

If your case is worth $250,000, you can potentially get approved for 10% of that amount, that is a maximum of $25,000.

If your case is worth $50,000, you can potentially get approved for a $5,000 lawsuit loan max.

Some of the criteria most lenders require to get approved for a loan against your settlement are:

  • You must be a plaintiff with a viable legal claim seeking compensation for physical injuries from an accident caused by someone else’s fault;
  • You have retained an attorney on contingency;
  • The applicant must be at least 18 years of age;
  • All applications must have legitimate claims;
  • The defendant has to be insured.
  • If you have a settled claim of over $50,000 but need funds now, you may automatically qualify for settled claim plaintiff funding.

Non-recourse legal funding means a third-party financier will buy part of your expected settlement payout or personal injury award based on your litigation or claim strength in exchange for the advance. Additionally, lawsuit funding providers are prohibited from seizing your assets (house, car), they are forbidden from trashing your credit, or trying to collect on the funds if your court case does not settle in your favor. 

Baker Street Legal Funding provides non-compounding rates starting at 2.95% to 3.4%. However, your case’s strength and value will predict the interest rate because it either poses more or less risk to the lender, and they lose investments in suits every day.

For example, if you have a personal injury claim with prior injuries, you may default on paying back the money because the case may end up as a loss. Therefore, your rate may be around 3.4% per month.

Additionally, lower rates are only offered to those plaintiffs with provable merits of the case. 

It’s relatively common for one loan to fall short of covering all of a plaintiff’s needs during the pendency of a case. That is why everyone is welcome to apply for additional loans up until they receive their settlement payment. 

Most funding providers approve additional advances if the case has progressed since the last time the loan got funded, and the settlement value merits new funds.

A lender receives repayment only if you are granted a settlement or jury verdict and collect on the proceeds. Your attorney will pay back the money (plus interest) immediately after they receive your settlement proceeds after the successful completion of your lawsuit.

The repayment of the loan will happen after your attorney:

  • Pays medical liens;
  • Pays other liens such as tax liens;
  • Sets apart attorney fees.

If you don’t receive a compensation payment from the defendant, you will not be tied to paying back the advancement.

You might want to consider getting legal funding if you:

  • Need to pay backed-up electricity bills;
  • Need to pay medical bills;
  • Need to cover your rent or mortgage, or are about to get evicted;
  • Don’t want to accept a low-valued offer from the insurance;
  • Need to cover funeral costs;
  • Have no income.

Legal claims are not easy to handle, and they can take a long time to resolve, sending your finances into a spin as you juggle bills with limited or no income. The good news is that a non-recourse pre-settlement loan could be an option to help you through your financial burden while the legal process is active.

Non-recourse funding can help level the playing field against large insurance companies offering as little as possible in settlement amounts. It could help you avoid accepting less money than you deserve out of desperation.

Legal funding from a reputable lender can ultimately assist victims in starting their financial recovery by getting access to a portion of their anticipated settlement funds before the case resolves.
