Plaintiff Funding

Plaintiffs who are waiting for their pending lawsuits to settle may be waiting a long time for the cases to make their way through the courts. During that time, bills can pile up, particularly if the plaintiff has suffered injuries that have resulted in lost wages and costly medical bills. LSC’s plaintiff funding program offers a lawsuit cash advance to pay those bills while the case is in the settlement process. Also referred to as settlement funding, these cash advances cover the cost of daily living expenses so individuals don’t have to settle for less just to settle faster.

Types of Settlement Funding

There are many types of litigation that could qualify for plaintiff funding, including:

  • Child Custody – These emotional family cases often qualify for plaintiff funding, as the court works toward a decision that is in the best interest of the child.
  • Divorce – Also wrought with emotion, when divorce cases end up in court, settlement funding can help ease the strain of an already stressful situation.
  • Auto Accidents – Both pedestrians and drivers injured in collisions may require money for medical bills long before the case is settled, which is where pre-settlement funding companies may be the answer.
  • Truck Accidents – Often the most tragic accidents to occur on the road today, those injured by commercial trucks may need financial assistance while a case is settled with the trucking company.
  • FELA Lawsuits – Referred to as the Federal Employers’ Liability Act, these lawsuits involve railroad workers that were injured on the job and have filed litigation as a result of their injuries.
  • Premises Liability – When someone is injured due to failure on the part of a property owner to maintain the property, a premises liability case may be filed.
  • Slip and Fall – Similar to a premises liability lawsuit, slip and fall litigation involves an injury that is the result of unsafe condition on another person’s property.
  • Wrongful Death – When the unthinkable occurs, and someone is killed due to the negligence of another, a wrongful death lawsuit may provide compensation for the family who lost their loved one. These cases can take a long time to settle before payment is received.
  • Personal Injury – Any type of injury due to an accident, mistake or negligence on the part of another person may qualify for a personal injury lawsuit funding.
  • Brain Injury – Traumatic brain injury may be the result of a vehicle accident, slip and fall injury or other events that are due to the negligence or carelessness of another individual. Pre and post settlement funding can provide assistance.
  • Mesothelioma – Prolonged exposure to asbestos, through the workplace or another source, has resulted in a growing number of cases of a terminal illness of the respiratory tract known as mesothelioma. LSC can provide litigation funding.
  • Discrimination – When a decision in made in the workplace based on race, gender, ancestry, religion, pregnancy or age, a discrimination lawsuit may be filed against the employer.
  • Wrongful Termination – Employees that are unfairly fired from their post may be eligible for a wrongful termination lawsuit, which could result in monetary compensation. Pre settlement lawsuit funding is often critical in discrimination cases.
