Do you require a credit check or financial information?
No. We do not require a credit check, nor copies of your financials, tax returns, or any documents other than those pertaining directly to your case.
What happens if I lose my case?
If you do not settle your case and receive an unfavorable decision in court, you owe nothing in return for the amount you received from High Rise Financial. High Rise Financial assumes all of the risk in not getting paid if you lose your case.
How quick will funds be available?
We are able to rapidly assess a case and determine how much funding we will be able to provide, and typically have funds to our clients within 24 hours of the completion of the funding application.
What happens if I need more money before receiving settlement?
We know that each client’s situation is different, and from time to time they have immediate needs for additional funding. We are always willing to take time to see how we can help and, whenever possible, we will provide additional funding as needed.
Do all personal injury cases qualify for financing?
High Rise Financial funds claims ranging from automotive accidents and medical malpractice to product and premises liability. Most cases qualify as long as the injured party has arranged for legal representation.
How do plaintiffs benefit from pre-settlement funding?
Plaintiffs in personal injury cases are not only faced with medical bills for their injuries, but they are also often out of work for an extended time as they recover. Settling a personal injury claim can take months or even years leaving the injured party struggling to meet their day-to-day financial obligations. Legal financing through High Rise Financial is a way to alleviate financial stress while pursuing a personal injury claim.
Additionally, unlike most plaintiffs, insurance companies have notoriously deep pockets. This gives the insurance company the luxury of being able to draw out the case as long as possible and otherwise pressure the plaintiff into settling prematurely for an unreasonably low amount. By removing some of the financial burdens from the plaintiff, legal funding levels the playing field and allows plaintiffs and their attorneys to negotiate a truly fair settlement.
Will I need a lawyer representing my lawsuit?
You must have an attorney representing your case. High Rise Financial will work directly with your attorney to ensure that all paperwork is complete and funding is delivered to you as quickly as possible.
How does the repayment process work?
If a High Rise Financial funding specialist approves a case, a funding agreement is sent to the plaintiff’s attorney that outlines the amount to be funded along with any applicable fees and costs. Once the case is successfully settled, the attorney repays HRF out of the proceeds. There is no repayment if the lawsuit is unsuccessful.
Who will I be working with at High Rise Financial?
You’ll work with one dedicated representative throughout the entire process. This representative will be familiar with all the ins and outs of your case and will be available to answer any questions you and your attorney might have.
How does lawsuit funding differ from a loan or cash advance?
Funding through High Rise Financial is not a loan or cash advance. With a loan, the money has to repaid no matter what. With us, there is no repayment required if there is no recovery.
