Types of Funding
Pre-settlement funding is when a company gives you money in exchange for the right to receive a portion of your financial settlement in the future. You get money immediately to pay bills. There is no risk, no monthly payments, and no collection agencies. Funding is not re-paid until the end of your case.
Pre-settlement funding in Texas is often incorrectly referred to as a lawsuit loan. But according to state law, we are not allowed to call our settlement cash advance a lawsuit loan. If it were a pre-settlement loan in Texas, then technically we’d be able to use a loan collection agency. But the good news for you is we can’t, because pre-settlement funding is not a loan. At Express Legal Funding, we strive to adhere to the highest legal and ethical standards, so you can get the best level of financial service that you deserve.
A Missouri Workers Compensation loan is given to an injured worker who borrows money against the future settlement or trial award for their workers compensation claim. It is considered a loan in the state of Missouri. We are able to provide this type of loan since Express Legal Funding is licensed through the Missouri Division of Finance.
How to Apply
If you have been injured or incurred damages, and another person or a company is partially at fault, then the answer to that question is – yes, you are qualified to apply for pre-settlement funding.
In some cases, you may not even need to file suit or go to court. If there is a liable party, then a settlement is possible. But whether you anticipate receiving money through a settlement or trial award, you are qualified to apply for pre-settlement funding.
