USClaims Among Best Litigation Funders According to NJ Law Journal
USClaims has been voted a top service provider by the readers of the New Jersey Law Journal, an American Lawyer Media publication, in the publication’s “Best of 2012” survey. The firm ranked among the best in the Pre-Settlement Financing category.
The New Jersey Law Journal’s “Best of” survey asks its 29,000 readers who represent 71 percent of New Jersey’s legal community to vote for the best providers of products and services. The results were published in the “Best of 2012” issue, which was issued on December 10. The New Jersey Law Journal provides weekly information in print and online. Earlier this year, USClaims was ranked among the best providers of Pre-Settlement Financing services by the readers of The Legal Intelligencer for the third consecutive year.
Darryl Levine, president of USClaims, said, “Litigation funding is a service designed to help litigants meet their financial obligations so that plaintiffs’ attorneys can focus on the best outcomes for their clients.” He said, “In this way, personal injury attorneys can stay focused on the litigation until a fair settlement or verdict can be reached.”
Founded in 1996, USClaims is the longest continuously operating pre-settlement funding company in the U.S. It currently has $30 million in active funding and more than 3,000 clients. The firm operates by purchasing a portion of the anticipated proceeds of a claim and only receives repayment if a case is won.
USClaims provides no-risk financial support for personal injury victims pursuing catastrophic injury cases involving comparative negligence, defective products, drug injury, insurer misconduct, medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, nursing home abuse, slip and fall, unsafe workplaces, and wrongful death, as well as whistleblower, class action and mass torts. USClaims partners with personal injury, Qui Tam and FELA attorneys to purchase a portion of the anticipated plaintiffs’ proceeds of mature claims, providing their clients with the means to pay bills and withstand long litigation periods until a settlement can be reached. A member of the Active American Legal Finance Association (ALFA), USClaims offers Client Award Protection, ensuring that client costs never exceed the value of a settlement.
