What is post-settlement funding?

Post-settlement funding is a financial product available to plaintiffs and attorneys after their litigation has reached a resolution. Settled case funding is not a traditional loan, and is only available as non-recourse meaning; if the defendant defaults on the payment, the advance does not have to be repaid until you are able to collect. A post-settlement loan is a way to leverage your settlement award by securing upfront capital against your pending settlement payment. Post-settlement lawsuit funding helps attorneys and plaintiffs get the needed liquidity now.

Post-settlement lawsuit loans for plaintiffs and attorneys.

If you’re seeking financial assistance while waiting for your settlement funds or fees to arrive, you’ve probably heard of post-settlement lawsuit loans. Winning a settlement means that the case is over and in your favor. However, cashing out can take time. In some cases, getting your fair share can also take years, depending on the settlement agreement you had with the other party. If you have a resolved case but you haven’t received payment, you may qualify for post-settlement funding, a legal funding choice available to plaintiffs, and attorneys.

Cash for settlements—FAQ's.

Achieving settlement in a personal injury lawsuit is seen as a big win by plaintiffs. Most attorneys know that while the settlement is a milestone, it is by no means the end of the road. Settlement payments sometimes take months or years to reach the plaintiff due to processing issues, liquidity problems, appeals, or even the settlement terms. In the meantime, the attorney must focus on other cases and managing the day to day expenses of their firms. Plaintiffs have costs as well, including rent or mortgages, utilities, and other day-to-day living expenses that they might not be able to pay. For this reason, your client should get the necessary cash he or she needs until they get paid in full.

Our investment in your case is a non-recourse financing agreement. This differs from a loan in two ways, the first is that we are investing into a portion of your settlement (post-settlement), so things like credit, job status, and income do not factor into our analysis. The second difference is that if your case does not settle, or your award is never paid you owe us nothing! Non-Recourse Transaction This investment into your loan, as stated above, is a non-recourse agreement. This means that we accept all the risk and you do not pay us back if your case doesn’t settle, or your award never arrives.

 

The process is extremely simple and normally finalized inside of one business day. Baker Street Funding will simply purchase a portion of the settlement award based on our analysis of the settlement agreement. First, our underwriter will review your case documents, including the fully executed settlement agreement, then they will generate a contract for the client and/or attorney to sign. Once signed, our funding company will execute that lien and distribute the funds by bank wire or certified check. The plaintiff or attorney will receive the cash advance against his lawsuit settlement within 24 hours of the contract's execution.

 As soon as we receive the required document, and verify the details and validity of your pending settlement, we will deliver you the settlement funds as soon as 12 hours from the moment we receive all the required documentation.

Are you requesting post-settlement financing for yourself or for a client? What we will need:

  1. A copy of the fully executed settlement agreement; 
  2. Amount of funding requested;
  3. A copy of the general release letter between the plaintiff and insurer. 

Please provide the required document(s) needed and fax to (518) 500-3056, or email to info@bakerstreetfunding.com. Or, better yet, call us at (888) 711-3599 for more information.

Settled case lawsuit funding acts as a lifeline for plaintiffs and attorneys alike, giving them access to liquidity that they otherwise could not get from a traditional financial institution. Giving plaintiffs and attorneys early access to their future receivables empowers them to make sure they are making sound financial and business decisions and not handcuffed by a long processing time of a settlement award.

Even after a case is settled, you may find yourself waiting months or even years to see your award. Cases that are won in court sometimes require a review period or go through an appeal after the case settles. Life keeps moving, and costs pile up for plaintiffs while they wait for their compensation. A settlement advance is an option for the plaintiff to ease the financial burden until their settlement award is paid out. 

The repayment process is quite simple. We will deduct our advance proceeds from your eventual settlement funds whenever you receive them. We urge you to call our legal funding specialists as we will get on your case immediately.

While the United States' legal system is in place to provide justice for those who have been wronged, the legal process does not always move quickly. A personal injury case can take many years to settle. Class actions and mass tort cases can take even longer because they usually span multiple jurisdictions, while commercial litigation is extremely complex and long. The good news is if you have a pending settlement award or judgment, and you need a cash advance now, Baker Street Funding can qualify you now. To receive a post-settlement loan, there are certain requirements that you need to satisfy. Firstly, only a plaintiff can receive a post-settlement loan and not a defendant. Secondly, you need to have a successful claim and must be entitled to receive a monetary settlement.

  1. Plaintiffs: To qualify for a lawsuit settlement advance, your case must have settled for $50,000 or more.
  2. Attorneys: Please call us to speak about how much we can provide you. Attorney funding can go up to 50% of the settled amount.

In exchange for a portion of your future legal settlement, we will provide you with your settlement funds in as little as 12 hours. So if your settlement check is still months away, call Baker Street Funding at (888) 711-3599 and get approved quickly. There is no credit check, and we do not verify your income.

Legal funding for settled cases is a non-recourse loan provided to people who have settled cases but still haven’t received the money from their settlement. This is where post-settlement loans can be ideal for anyone waiting to receive their compensation. The individual can use this funding to pay necessities until he finally receives his check.
In some cases, where the plaintiff is unable to work, settled case funding can help him pay for his expenses while waiting for the compensation to payout. A post-settlement loan can help in paying your medical bills, mortgage payments, rent, and other living expenses so that you don’t have to deal with financial stress.
Post-settlement funding is different from pre-settlement funding, as this form of funding comes after the case has been settled or closed by the judge. Once the case is settled, pre-settlement funding ends, however in most cases, money is still needed, and that is where post-settlement financing comes into play, especially if there is an expected delay in the deposit of the funds from the insurance company.
Our services ensure that you can still receive an advance before the time checks are sent out. We don’t want you waiting for your case cash with no money in your pocket while the defendant takes his time to pay what they owe you. After all, you had to deal with all the pain and suffering, and you deserve to be rewarded. Apply to learn more.

As a personal injury victim or plaintiff in a lawsuit, we understand that you need cash for your bills. While insurance companies can provide you with compensation, it is essential to know that they lack sympathy when it comes to cutting a settlement check and can take a lot of time for the funds to be delivered to you. Even though settlement funding is commonly referred to as ‘lawsuit loans,’ it is not a loan in any way. Our post-settlement advance is a non-recourse; therefore, you won’t have to worry about making monthly payments. Moreover, your attorney will be directly paid when your settlement cash is delivered so that we won’t be touching your personal accounts. A cash advance on a settled claim, unlike a loan, grants you expedited access to your own money, so you will not have to worry about making monthly payments to a lender. Also, we will be repaid by your attorney directly when your reward arrives.

One of the most common misconceptions about winning a settlement is that the check will be sent immediately. The legal process for settlement cases tends to get long and frustrating. On top of dealing with the legal procedure, the plaintiff has to also pay all his expenses involving mortgage payment and medical bills. You must be wondering why there is a delay in the delivery of the settlement cash when you have already been awarded one legally. The following are some reasons that can cause a delay for a settlement to be paid to the plaintiff:

  1. The judge’s formal approval is still pending.
  2. There is more than one plaintiff in the case.
  3. Payment of attorney’s fee.
  4. Investigating and clearing of liens.
  5. The size of the settlement/ratification of the terms of the payout.

The payment can also be delayed if the defense appeals to the decision of the court and takes the case to another level that involves long legal proceedings. This can cause the settlement to be delayed for years. In addition to this, even if the case has been settled, you will still have to wait for the settlement to be approved by the court and the estate before the money can be distributed in accordance with the settlement.

While many companies within the industry offer financing for settled cases, many do not provide the high amounts the client or attorney is requesting. Most legal finance firms put their attention on either pre-settlement loans due to the magnitude of demand for funding in this field, yet there is still a demand for post-settlement advances for attorneys and their clients due to some cases involving long settlement pay wait. Baker Street Legal Funding has committed to focusing a portion of their business exclusively on cash for settlements. At Baker Street Funding, we focus on settled case advances, which provides a higher funding amount as quickly as possible thanks to our efficient underwriters and investment success in the field.
