California pre-settlement funding FAQ.

Baker Street Funding has representatives standing by 24/7 to help you through the pre-settlement advance process. Call us at (888) 711-3599 with any questions you may have about our pre-settlement loan program in California.

Obtaining funding from your litigation is risk-free because the money is provided on a non-recourse basis. That means that the advance is not a traditional loan. Non-recourse third-party financing means that you won’t have to pay back the money you borrowed if you do not collect a settlement payment or award of damages.

It’s easy for victims with civil lawsuits in California to get funded because California’s laws benefit personal injury victims.

After you and your attorney have dually signed our pre-settlement legal funding agreement, and we have received it before 3 pm ET on a business day, you will get your advance before 6 pm ET Monday-Friday (and in as little as 2 hours). If the terms are accepted after 3 pm ET Monday-Friday, the legal funds will be transferred on the following business day. 

For corporate litigation loans in California: there is an additional 7-14 business day period between when you accept your agreement and when you will receive the litigation funds.

The settlement loan process takes approximately 24 hours. 

California is a friendly lawsuit loan state. Learn the personal injury laws, roads, car accident statistics.

California is one of the states that has the famous Golden Gate Bridge, Disneyland, and Hollywood. California is unique for its Coachella, the Silicon Valley, Winery, and it is a Surfer’s paradise. The Golden State is also known for people’s variety of extreme political opinions and liberty of mind and styles, as opposed to the average and grand majority of the population in the U.S. 

California is also the most populous state in America that has high-rated commercial activities. You can imagine the level of car accidents, personal injury, and even death toll due to the population and the state’s ongoing commercial activities.

Since 2013, accident deaths in the state have increased by 23.5%. Now, California accounts for 11% of the nation’s auto death, with a total number of 3,898 deaths in 2017 and 276,823 injuries. The state’s auto accident statistics in 2018 were also higher than those for 2017, and they ended in fatalities.

The death toll, personal injury, and fatality are not limited to car accidents alone. Between the 2016 – 2017 fiscal years, the number of civil lawsuits filed was above 250,000.

You can imagine the number of car accidents and see how uneasy it is to get an insurance settlement quickly.

Despite this information, alone in May 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, while people were mostly at home, people who were killed in car crashes in the city of LA alone are close to those who were killed in May 2019.

There’s a Sigalert for the carpool lane on the 5 south.

When Californians listen to this phrase, they know that the traffic will be more horrendous than usual.

The NHTSA Fatality Analysis Reporting System has said that the most dangerous roads in California are: the US-101, SR-2, I-5, SR-86, UR Route 99, and SR-62.

Causes of fatalities include:

  • Speeding;
  • Making a wrong turn or against a one-way street;
  • Taking the red light or stop sign;
  • Driving while intoxicated under alcohol.

More on accident stats in California:

  • Accident stats: The fatalities that involved drinking and driving decreased by 6.8% from 1,147 in 2017 to 1,069 in 2018.
  • Passenger seats: Fatalities for passengers in all seating positions decreased by 4.3% from 625 in 2017 to 598 in 2018.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: Deaths involving motorcycle accidents decreased by 15.57% from 578 in 2017 to 488 in 2018.
  • Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrian car accident-related deaths decreased by 5% from 940 in 2017 to 893 in 2018.

California operates under pure comparative negligence law. This means that the jury will determine each party’s level of culpability. For example, a plaintiff who is 10% at fault for contributing to a car accident and his injuries will only be 10% percent liable for the accident and injuries.

The damages that a plaintiff can recover are based on the degree of his own causing.

Basically, injured plaintiffs can collect a settlement even if they are at 99% at fault.

Keep in mind that with these laws, insurance settlement claims can seem stressful because insurance companies purposely delay settlements and payments.

The statute of limitations in California can go up to ten years. The following list will give you a clue if you still have time to proceed with a lawsuit:

Personal injury: 2 yrs. Civ. Proc. §335.1;

False imprisonment: 1 yr. Civ. Proc. §340(c)

Libel/Slander: 1 yr. Civ. Proc. §340(c)

Medical Malpractice: 1 yr. from discovery, 3 yrs. if the injury is known Civ. Proc. §340.5;

Judgments: 10 yrs. Civ. Proc. §337.5

If you need to get a quick lawsuit financial solution to hurriedly cover up your expenses, apply for plaintiff funding with Baker Street Funding. We have fast turnarounds and can approve a no-fault case by the next business day.

Baker Street Funding provides you with financial assistance before your settlement claim is approved, and after your legal battle has been settled and paid.
