A non-recourse loan from High Rise Financial is not like other loans. Your pre-settlement legal funding is a form of a non-recourse loan, with several major differences. Unlike a traditional recourse or even non-recourse loan, pre-settlement legal funding is available at NO RISK to you, as long as you are in the middle of a personal injury lawsuit, and you have a lawyer representing you. Amazingly enough, you don’t have to pay us back if you lose your case!
While you were under a time limit to file your claim after you were injured, the other side is in no hurry to resolve the case. Their lawyers are working hard to give you the least amount of money possible. They may also purposely drag out the case, hoping your financial troubles will lead you to settle for a lowball offer. Don’t do it.
Pre-settlement legal funding enables you to meet your financial obligations, even if you can’t work. In this way, it gives you and your lawyer the time you need to present the strongest case possible.

Pre-Settlement Legal Funding Is a Safe Loan
With a typical loan, you make monthly payments, and the loan may be high interest, based on your credit rating and debt-to-income ratio. Standard loans come in two types: recourse and non-recourse.
A typical recourse loan would be a car loan or a boat loan. If you default on the loan, the lender has the authority to not only seize the car or the boat but to go after you in court to force you to repay what you still owe on the loan. They may force you to sell other assets, or garnish your wages.
A typical non-recourse loan would be a home mortgage for someone with good credit. In this scenario, you put up the home as collateral. If you can’t make payments, the lender can foreclose on the home and resell it. But if the value of the home is less than what you owe on the loan, they cannot come after you to pay up — they have no legal recourse.
Pre-Settlement Legal Funding Is a Form of Non-Recourse Loan
With pre-settlement legal funding, your eventual settlement is the collateral we base your funding on. When you apply, we will ask about the details of your injuries, and the specifics of your case. We will also ask how much you are claiming in damages, as well as the expected settlement amount. Our underwriters then calculate how much we can lend you, with the expectation that we will be paid back out of the settlement amount or jury award when you win your case.
Since the amount of your legal funding is not tied to your personal financial situation, this means:
- NO credit check
- NO need to supply bank statements
- NO supplying tax documents
- NO proof of employment
Pre-settlement legal funding is truly no-risk. It’s free to apply. If you win your case, your lawyer pays High Rise Financial directly out of the settlement or jury award. This is spelled out in the legal funding agreement paperwork. The amount we are paid will include your pre-settlement legal funding amount, plus a flat fee that we charge.
Because we get paid directly out of the settlement, this means:
- NO monthly payments
- NO compound interest
- NO risk of defaulting
- NO hassle
If you lose your case, your non-recourse loan simply goes away. You do not pay us a dime. Our goal is to help our clients by reducing financial stress during a personal injury lawsuit. This helps you and your lawyer focus on the big picture — developing the strongest case possible, which can result in a larger settlement.
