Pre-settlement Lawsuit Funding FAQs

Types of Lawsuit Money

Pre-settlement lawsuit funding is when a company gives you money now in exchange for the right to receive a portion of your case’s financial settlement in the future. So you can get money immediately to pay your bills.

There is no risk to you, no monthly payments, and never any danger of debt collectors. Legal funding does not have to be repaid until the end of your case, and that is if you settled or won.

Even though you might see some other companies refer to pre-settlement lawsuit funding as a lawsuit loan in most states like Texas and Oklahoma, it’s not a loan of any type.

Your credit score is not a factor in getting approved for legal funding. In fact, pre-settlement funding can help you repair your credit by paying off debts.

A workers’ compensation loan is given to an injured worker who is borrowing money against the future settlement or trial award of their workers’ comp claim.

Workers’ comp loans must be given as loans in Missouri. We can provide this type of Missouri lawsuit loan since the Missouri Division of Finance actively licenses us.
