High Rise Financial provides non-recourse pre-settlement legal funding, not loans per se. This is an important distinction, as some predatory companies offer lawsuit loans that have been decried by organizations like the Center for Public Integrity. We exclusively provide non-recourse funding to clients because non-recourse debt protects the borrower. Eligible borrowers include anyone with a pending personal injury lawsuit who is represented by an attorney or law firm.
It’s that simple! If you are in the process of suing someone for the negligence or actions that led to your injury and other damages, you might be eligible for pre-settlement legal funding from High Rise Financial. Plus, applying is absolutely FREE, so you have nothing to lose by filling out the form on our Apply Now page.

Cases We Fund
Personal injury is a wide category of law that includes lots of different case types. You may have a case that is eligible for non-recourse pre-settlement legal funding, but it might be referred to by its specific sub-type rather than as a “personal injury” claim. Some of the cases we’ve funded in the past include:
- Product liability claims
- Medical device injuries (including mass torts like those involving transvaginal mesh or hip implants)
- Car accidents (including collisions with large trucks, bicycles, and pedestrians)
- Nursing home negligence
- Medical malpractice
Factors in a Successful Personal Injury Claim
All personal injury claims result from two elements. First, you must have some form of significant damage. This usually involves an injury (hence, the name of the type of law), but it also can include other damages such as lost or destroyed property, economic hardships like medical bills or property repair costs, lost wages, and even emotional or psychological trauma. However, just being hurt or harmed in some way is not enough for a successful legal claim.
The second element is liability. This is just a legal term that refers to responsibility for the incident. In order to have a solid personal injury lawsuit, you need to be able to show that the opposing side was responsible — for the damages you suffered. If you can do that, you should have a clear shot at significant compensation.
Why We Require You to Have an Attorney
High Rise Financial only provides non-recourse legal funds to clients who are represented by an attorney or law firm. In part, this is because having a lawyer makes you much more likely to win your claim, and it also increases your likelihood of a large compensation package. Since we are repaid out of your compensation package, requiring you to have a lawyer is a way to protect our underwriters.
Also, we work directly with legal counsel when it comes time for repayment. This way, you don’t have to worry about monthly payments, compound interest, or remembering to schedule your repayment. Here’s how the process works:
- You win your case and your attorney receives a compensation check from the at-fault party.
- Your lawyer writes High Rise Financial a check for the agreed upon repayment amount.
- You keep whatever is left over (after attorneys’ fees).
Remember, having a lawyer on your side typically gets an injured claimant much more compensation even after factoring in the lawyer’s fees.
How Non-Recourse Legal Funding Helps You
The average personal injury claim can take months or even years to resolve. That’s a long time to wait for the money you deserve. Even worse, the opposing side in your case often makes use of this fact to pressure you into settling for a much smaller amount than your injuries are worth. It’s unfortunate, it’s not fair, but it’s standard practice for at-fault parties and their attorneys to postpone and delay negotiations in order to get a lowball settlement.
When you get non-recourse pre-settlement legal funding from High Rise Financial, you take the sting out of that financial pressure. Our underwriters, depending on the details of your case, can approve up to $250,000 and have it in your bank account in as little as a day. With that kind of cash on hand, you can buy your attorney the time they need to get you the compensation package you truly deserve.
