The National Safety Council (NSC) states that in 2019, 7,668 pedestrians died on public roads, driveways, and other areas well-traveled by vehicles. As a pedestrian, cars are supposed to yield and exercise a higher duty of care for you. Suing for financial compensation after your accident can still take a long time, even if the law is on your side.

Why Exactly Do I Need Legal Funding for My Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit?
When you file a lawsuit for your pedestrian accident, you’re going against the at-fault party’s insurance company. Insurance companies are large businesses with lots of resources at their disposal to challenge your legal right to compensation. They will often employ stall tactics to get you to settle for less.
By lengthening the time it takes to settle, they know that this can put you in a worse financial situation. You may need money from your settlement to cover your bills and expenses, but as long as they keep delaying it, you will continue to rack up debt until it becomes unmanageable. This will make you more open to accepting a lowball settlement offer that they provide you.
Insurance companies do this all the time to personal injury victims. Their interests aren’t in helping you after an accident. It’s helping themselves by paying you less than what you truly deserve. Legal funding pays for your expenses, so this cheap tactic doesn’t work against you. You can render yourself immune, take control of your finances, and hold out for a better settlement.
Doesn’t the Statute of Limitations Guarantee a Quick Resolution?
Your state’s statute of limitations doesn’t apply for how long it should take for your lawsuit to settle. It only applies to how long you have to file your claim. This is a common misconception that many pedestrian accident victims have. They think that the law will help them get their settlement fast.
The truth is, the courts are notoriously slow at handling these types of cases. Moreover, courts are usually already bogged down with cases to begin with, so you shouldn’t have any reason to believe that your pedestrian accident lawsuit is going to resolve promptly.
Why Should I Choose High Rise Financial’s Legal Funding?
Our legal funding has many benefits:

The American Bar Association (ABA) published a white paper regarding the ethics of legal funding. In it, it stressed the importance of choosing a reputable institution to provide you with pre-settlement funding.
Many companies offer you “lawsuit loans,” but in reality, are just trying to rip your settlement from your hands. They have ridiculous terms and often seek to take advantage of you just like the insurance companies are.
