If You Have a Lawsuit Against Juul Labs, Legal Funding Can Help

An increasing number of lawsuits are being filed against the makers of Juul regarding users’ development of bronchiolitis obliterans, or popcorn lung. While Juul Labs has marketed the popular e-cigarettes to teenagers with flavors reminiscent of candy and maintained that Juul e-cigarettes are safe and a reasonable alternative to cigarette smoking, the suits claim that studies actually show that use of Juul and other e-cigarettes carry many of the same health risks as tobacco cigarettes.

Given the tremendous popularity of Juuling, it’s likely that many more suits will be filed.

Legal Funding Can Provide Financial Help to Plaintiffs

If you or a loved one have filed a lawsuit against Juul Labs, you could receive compensation for medical and healthcare bills related to your condition, wages lost from work, and more.

However, lawsuits can take a very long time to resolve, with months or even years elapsing between the filing and the settlement or trial verdict. Meanwhile, healthcare professionals, hospitals, and ongoing treatment providers may be sending you bills stamped past due. Popcorn lung can make going to school to obtain a degree or working difficult, meaning your income is affected.

It can be dangerous to feel that your financial life hinges on the settlement of a court case. If the defendants offer to settle before trial, you may feel compelled to accept the offer. But first offers are seldom the most advantageous to the plaintiffs; negotiation is often needed for a just settlement. Not feeling you have the time to negotiate can result in a lesser settlement than you might have received otherwise.

The solution may be a legal loan to tide you over financially as your case works its way through the courts. Legal funding might not be for everyone, but it can be very helpful for those struggling financially while their case drags on for months or years.

If You Lose Your Case, You Owe Us Nothing

Legal loans are different than personal loans offered by a bank. Legal loans are nonrecourse loans, which means they are more analogous to cash advances.

If you win your case, you are required to pay back your legal loan, at a reasonable interest rate.

If you lose the case, you won’t owe anything. Yes, you read that correctly. If your case isn’t successful, you never owe anything back.

You can use legal loans to pay any reasonable living expense, such as rent or mortgage, groceries, your work or school transportation, health insurance, and more.

The approval process for legal loans is just 24 hours. A credit check is not required. There are no hidden costs. These are cash advances on any future settlement in your court case. We offer the industry’s lowest rates.
