How Pre-Settlement Legal Funding Works
The process for applying for and getting pre-settlement legal funding is pretty simple. You are eligible to get pre-settlement legal funding as long as you are currently involved in a personal injury case, and you have a lawyer representing you in that case. Then it’s a 5-step process.
- You contact us and apply.
- We consult with your attorney and review your case and potential settlement. Since this is not a loan, we do not perform a credit check, so there will be no change to your credit report.
- Based on our evaluation of your case, we may offer you a portion of the settlement amount. If you agree, you and your attorney will sign a legal agreement.
- We pay you the agreed-upon amount, usually within 24-48 hours of you applying.
- Once your case settles, High Rise Financial receives repayment directly from the settlement after the case is finalized.
It really is that simple. If you don’t win your case, you do not have to pay us back. Applying for legal funding with High Rise Financial is free, and you don’t make any monthly payments like you would with a lawsuit loan. We focus on your needs and will do all we can to provide you with a cash advance on the future settlement of your lawsuit. This allows you and your attorney to focus on proving your case and maximizing your settlement.
In addition, since the repayment for your pre-settlement legal funding comes directly from your lawsuit settlement, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not consider it as income, and will not collect taxes on it.
You should consult with a tax attorney after your settlement is reached, however, to determine if part of that final payment may be taxable. In general, personal injury compensatory and general damages are not taxable. But if your settlement includes compensation for lost income, that portion could be taxable.
