Leveling the Legal Playing Field with Settlement FundingNovember 13, 2014
Taking your neighbor to civil court over a dispute is one thing. Taking a multi-national conglomerate to court is another matter entirely. Deep pockets equal long court cases, and very few individuals have the resources to match a corporate defendant. Pre-settlement funding can make the difference between a smaller, earlier settlement and a full and fair settlement that holds the defendant responsible for the harm it caused.
If you read our earlier blog post comparing a small plaintiff’s situation to that of David facing Goliath, you may have thought, sure, David defeated Goliath. But, at least he fought one-on-one.
You, however, are facing an entire legal army. You can be excused for feeling dispirited, even with your attorney and months of meticulous preparation on your side. Your attorney is confident in your case, but it’s tough to share her feelings in the face of your all-too-real suffering. Even worse is that the defendant doesn’t need to win the case. They do not need to beat you. They just need to get you to a point where you give up.
It can take months for a personal injury, medical malpractice, premises liability or product liability lawsuit to make its way through the court system, even without the defendant’s legal team stalling the process. With a team of lawyers filing motions and performing assorted other legal maneuvers intended to make you wait as long as possible, you may feel forced into taking a smaller settlement than you deserve.
There are, after all, bills to pay and mouths to feed. With your time, money, and health tied up in your case, the defendant’s legal team knows you need to settle to move on with your life. The more weeks, months, or even years they keep you waiting for your day in court, the more desperate you will be.
