Across the country, civil courts have been drastically affected as well. Although courtrooms are closed, attorneys have been working remotely, handling what they can via phone calls and virtual appointments to move cases forward. However, 8-months later, discovery is still being delayed, and cases are not being tried. Without a judge or jury to force mediation, a trial, or settlement, the plaintiff’s attorney has little power. That gives the insurance company an excuse to delay justice. The longer the pandemic continues, the greater the backlog of cases, and the longer it will take for settlements to be reached.
So, what does that mean for cash-strapped plaintiffs? How do the bills get paid, especially for someone out of work and/or disabled due to injuries sustained?
While COVID-19 may not have anything to do with a plaintiff’s lawsuit, it does add insult to injury. That’s where Lawsuit Financial comes in.
Lawsuit Financial can offer plaintiffs a cash advance, known as litigation funding, during these unprecedented times. Litigation funding allows a plaintiff to access some of their expected recovery before the case is settled. Although the cash advance can be used any way the plaintiff wishes, the money should be used for essential bills and expenses such as the mortgage or rent, car payments, utility bills, medical expenses, and groceries.
All a plaintiff needs to qualify for litigation funding is a pending personal injury case and attorney representation. We will assess the case's strength, and if viable, cash can be available in as little as 24 hours. That’s it – no credit check, employment verification, and no collateral, other than the case. The application process takes about 5 minutes and can be done online or over the phone. Best of all, there are no payments until the case settles, not even if the case takes months or years to teach a settlement. Best of all, if the case fails, repayment of the cash advance is completely waived.
If you are a plaintiff in a pending lawsuit, contact Lawsuit Financial at 877-377-7848 for a free, no-obligation consultation and to discuss how litigation funding can help you access the funds you need to weather this outbreak. You can also apply online at www.lawsuitfinancial.com.
