Lawsuit Settlement Loans

In lawsuit settlement loans, the financer will buy a part of a plaintiff’s anticipated settlement so that the plaintiff can stay financially solvent until that date. Some financers provide a lawsuit settlement loan in exchange for a percentage of the plaintiff’s eventual recovery, but these financers are rapidly declining in popularity.

As with most legal loans of this type, the financer will not collect if the plaintiff fails to receive the anticipated settlement, so there is a high margin of risk involved for the lender. The financer carefully judges the validity of a case and the plaintiff’s potential for future settlement before a ‘non-recourse’ loan is extended.

The kinds of claims that usually qualify for lawsuit settlement loans include auto accidents, medical malpractice, premises liability (slip and fall), commercial litigation, product liability, maritime claims (Jones act), railroad claims (FELA) and personal injury or wrongful death.

Many finance institutions offering lawsuit settlement loans also help recipients by structuring the disbursement of the loan according to individual needs. A client may avail of such a loan personally or have an appointed advocate arrange for one. Lawsuit settlement loans come in handy to cover medical and living expenses, legal fees and other outlays that may be incurred while the plaintiff awaits final judgment of a case.

Owing to the nature of these loans, the financer usually does not conduct a credit checks and may not set parameters to income requirements to approve a loan. The sole criterion will always be the final amount recovered in the case of favorable settlement for the plaintiff.
