Pre-Settlement Funding can help Victims of Car AccidentsMay 28, 2015
Even after he completely derailed her life, “Bethany” (not a real name) felt badly for the man who had broadsided her, injuring her in a car accident at the intersection near her office.
She learned that he was a family man and a respected professional. He was a local guy, only a few years older than she. One of her coworkers had gone to high school with him. He also suffered from a disorder that occasionally, and with very little warning, afflicted him with debilitating seizures. He suffered eight to 10 of them every year. The disorder was controlled with medication, but got much worse when he didn’t get enough sleep. When his seizures were flaring up, his doctor told him, he shouldn’t get behind the wheel.
On the day the car he was driving hit the car Bethany was driving, he had not slept well the night before and had forgotten his last two doses of medication. He didn’t mean to smash into her car. He didn’t mean to put her in the hospital. The fact remained, though, that his decision to drive that day was a bad decision. And that’s why, after consulting with her attorney, Bethany sued him for damages.
Bethany’s lawyer thinks she’s likely to get a fair settlement from the other driver’s insurance company. In the meantime, though, she has been unable to work. Disability payments have not covered her living expenses.
When he found out about Bethany’s situation, Bethany’s attorney told her about USClaims. We took her application for pre-settlement funding, and after a phone call with Bethany and her legal counsel, we were able to approve her. She had the money she needed to pay her bills within a few days.
At USClaims, we don’t offer litigation loans or litigation financing; we offer pre-settlement funding. We purchase a portion of the proceeds of an anticipated court settlement. That means injured people and their families will never be at financial risk of having to pay back a high-cost loan if their civil suit is unsuccessful. USClaims gets paid only if the plaintiff wins the case or receives a settlement.
Not every person who injures someone is a villain. In fact, many of them aren’t. But when a personal injury destroys your ability to earn a living or cover your expenses, justice isn’t only about holding people responsible. It’s about taking steps that can help to limit the financial damage. USClaims can be part of that process.
At USClaims, we offer pre-settlement funding, if a case is qualified for pre-settlement funding then we would purchase a portion of the proceeds of the anticipated court judgment or settlement for some cash now. USClaims only gets paid if a case is won or has reached a settlement! Apply now or call us today at 1-877-USCLAIMS to learn more.
