USClaims Lets Your Legal Team Do Its JobMay 1, 2014
You’re almost ready to file your lawsuit. You’ve secured an attorney, your case is taking shape, and you’ve made the decision to seek pre-settlement financing.
Plaintiffs and their lawyers may consider litigation funding as part of their strategy to meet a client’s financial needs while a case makes its way through the civil justice system. Some may hesitate, though, worrying whether obtaining pre-settlement financing would allow the funding company to influence how a legal team chooses to handle a case.
In other words, when you reach a funding agreement with USClaims, do we get a seat at your legal strategy table?
The short answer is no. Once USClaims approves an application for litigation funding, our involvement in your case is essentially complete until you reach a settlement or until a judge makes a ruling.
Before we get to that point, however, we must complete some administrative steps to decide whether to move ahead with the lawsuit funding.
When you apply for litigation financing from USClaims, the representative who processes your application will conduct an assessment of your case. We’ll want to know whether you have qualified legal counsel–meaning that you’ve retained a properly licensed attorney–and whether you’ve filed a lawsuit or are about to file one. Those are the only requirements we impose upon applicants.
We will then want to know enough about your case to make an informed decision about whether you are likely to succeed in court. Because USClaims receives payment for our services to you only if you win your case, we need to be able to assess your chances in order to make the decision to fund your efforts. We may ask to speak with your attorney, or even to see some of the documentation or other evidence you plan to present during your case.
Once we make the informed decision to provide you with pre-settlement or litigation funding, however, our involvement in the particulars of your case comes to an end. The rest is up to you and your attorney. USClaims will never attempt to influence how your legal team does its job, and you should avoid any prospective litigation funding company that seeks to do otherwise.
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.
