Legal Funding for Truvada, JUUL Plaintiffs

Staff Writer | December 20th, 2019

Multiple cases have been brought to court in two significant public health lawsuits recently.

In the first, multiple product liability and class action lawsuits have been filed against the e-cigarette maker JUUL, alleging that their products have addicted Americans nationwide, particularly teenagers and young adults. The company is further charged with implying that vaping with its products is safer than smoking – which has not been scientifically proven.

In the second, roughly 30 people have joined a lawsuit against drug maker Gilead, alleging that its drug Truvada caused severe bone damage and injuries to kidneys. These suits allege that the problems were avoidable had an alternative drug believed to be safer been used.

Plaintiffs allege that Gilead that the antiretroviral tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) in Truvada, an HIV drug, posed a risk to bones and kidneys. Despite this, Gilead is alleged to have failed to warn the medical community and patients about these risks and to have withheld safer versions such as tenofovir alafenamide fumarate (TAF).

Other HIV drugs made by Gilead, such as Atripla, Viread, Complera, and Stribild, are named in the suit.

How Legal Funding Can Tide You Over

If you are a plaintiff in either of these lawsuits, the legal system provides recourse for pursuing monetary compensation for damages.

Unfortunately, lawsuits in civil court can take a long time to resolve. Wouldn’t it be preferable to have the settlement money now, when it may be needed for doctor’s bills as well as your usual bills, such as mortgages/rent and groceries?

Well, there is a method of getting the money now. It’s called lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding for JUUL and Truvada plaintiffs

Lawsuit funding is a form of non-recourse loan. These kinds of loans are different than a loan you’d get from a bank. What it means for you is this: If your legal case is successful, you will pay the legal loan you receive now back, at a reasonable rate of interest, with payments every month.

But if your case is not successful for any reason and you don’t receive a settlement, you’ll never owe anything.

You heard that right. You will never owe anything unless you receive a settlement or jury award.

Legal funding can be used for any reasonable expense, including groceries, transportation, and utility payments.

You can breathe easier as your case winds through the courts, because financial pressure will be relieved. You’ve received a bridge to your future settlement.

Best of all, perhaps, a legal loan gives you leverage. You will not be desperate to settle at the first offer, just to have money to pay your bills. You can hold out until the offer is fair and just.

The Application Is Simple

A lawsuit funding application is simple to complete and can be done online. No credit check is required, and approval can be received within 24 hours.
