Attorneys Benefit from Learning about Pre-Settlement Funding, TooApril 2, 2015
As a trial attorney, you know how important it is to have a client who is engaged with their case and is working with you as part of a team to help them obtain justice for whatever wrongs may have been done to them.
Unfortunately, many of the circumstances that result from those wrongs also rob your client of the time, energy, and sometimes the perspective to work productively with you and your staff on the prosecution of their case. That’s bad for their case, bad for the morale in your office, and ultimately bad for your business.
When clients come to you, typically they are in a position of need and often also suffer from pain, grief, or financial stress. They may be at the end of their financial limits. They may push to accept an early settlement offer, not realizing that there are financial options available that can help sustain them until their case reaches a fair settlement or judgment.
As the attorney, your primary focus may be the law, but you are also in a position to help your clients in other ways. By educating yourself about the pre-settlement funding industry, you can put yourself in a position to offer financially-strapped clients a crucial pillar of stability while their case takes shape. For the most desperate clients, pre-settlement funding can be a viable alternative to the premature abandonment of an otherwise worthwhile case. Once you know about this option, you can share that information with your clients when they need it most.
A reputable pre-settlement funding company, such as USClaims, will work with you and your client to assess whether your lawsuit qualifies for pre-settlement funding. If we approve their application for pre-settlement funding, we could provide your client with cash to pay for living expenses while you are working to bring the defendant in the case to the settlement table.
We are not a lawsuit loan company; we do not offer litigation loans or litigation financing. We offer pre-settlement funding. We purchase a portion of the proceeds of the anticipated settlement or court judgment. That means your client will never be at financial risk of having to pay back a high-cost loan if the case is not successful. USClaims gets paid only if and when you are successful in winning a judgment or settlement for your client. There is no financial risk to either your client or your firm.
Your client’s personal finances may not seem directly related to their lawsuit, but the situation can affect your ability to work well on their behalf. When clients’ financial resources begin to pose a risk to the success of their case, being able to advise your clients of all their available options at all stages of the process makes you a more comprehensive legal resource.
If your clients feel like they aren’t sure how they are going to pay their mortgage, educate them about the possibilities of pre-settlement funding. When they’re ready to consider that step, we hope you’ll refer them to USClaims.
