Once viewed with skepticism, lawsuit financing has been steadily gaining acceptance among plaintiffs’ lawyers. By keeping plaintiffs financially secure during protracted litigation, settlement funding enables attorneys to diligently fight for a fair outcome and maximum recovery. Unfortunately, misconceptions still abound when it comes to this relative newcomer to the legal services industry.
Often, plaintiffs facing protracted litigation find themselves between a rock and a hard place financially. They cannot work, but the costs of basic necessities remain unchanged. As a result of such financial duress, a plaintiff may feel compelled to settle for less than their case is worth.
Pre-settlement funding enables the plaintiff’s attorney to pursue maximum recovery despite lengthy litigation by providing no-risk, non-recourse financial assistance to relieve financial hardship. A funding recipient may use a lawsuit advance to meet a variety of needs, from housing, meals and clothing, to medical care, school tuition or a new business venture. The financing provider only recoups the money advanced if the plaintiff prevails in securing a settlement or damages award. Should the defendant prevail, the financing company may not seek repayment from either the plaintiff or the plaintiff’s attorney.
