Pre-settlement legal funding is designed to help personal injury claimants get the money they need to wait out the months or years until their lawsuit settles. If you have a valid lawsuit, you may wonder if there is a certain type of lawsuit or eligibility criteria to get your funding. The short answer is that most personal injury claims qualify; however, you need to be sure your claim is properly filed in court, and an attorney represents your case.
Below, we’ll go into more detail about the kinds of cases we have funded in the past. If you think your claim or lawsuit qualifies, all you have to do is fill out your information on our Apply Now page. Our underwriters can have money in your bank account in as little as 24 hours!

Types of Cases We Fund
High Rise Financial provides pre-settlement legal funding to injured people waiting for personal injury claims to resolve. Personal injury, though, is a wide net that can include a lot of different case types. The American Bar Association defines personal injury claims as lawsuits that have two elements: damages and liability.
Whether the at-fault party in your case intentionally harmed you or simply showed negligence, you have a personal injury claim if you suffered damages due to actions or inactions for which they are responsible.
Some of the previous personal injury claims we’ve funded in the past include the following.
Car crashes, collisions with big-rig trucks, accidents involving government or rideshare vehicles, and even auto wrecks that include pedestrians or bicyclists are among the list of cases we fund. Car accidents are a common personal injury claim.
Medical Device Injuries
Our underwriters also have approved funding for lawsuits against medical providers or device manufacturers in situations involving malfunctioning devices. Sometimes, these are class-action lawsuits or multi-district litigation. For example, we may be able to offer pre-settlement legal funds for cases like:
- Lawsuits against transvaginal mesh manufacturers
- Injury claims due to faulty hip implants
Medical Service Provider Claims
Other personal injury claims that may qualify for pre-settlement legal funding include cases that arise from the liability of medical care providers. You might have a case against a doctor or surgeon for medical malpractice, for instance. Or, your loved one may have suffered nursing home abuse. Those are both examples of cases that we have helped fund in the past.
Miscellaneous Personal Injury Lawsuits
Since personal injury is such a varied practice area, it’s impossible to list all the kinds of cases that might qualify for pre-settlement legal funding from High Rise Financial. Other past claims we’ve approved include:
- Product liability claims
- Slip and fall accidents (learn more about slip and fall lawsuit loans)
- Accidents related to the Jones Act
- Dog or dangerous pet bites
- Injuries in the workplace

Other Pre-Settlement Legal Funding Eligibility Requirements
There are other requirements that you must meet in order to get funding from High Rise Financial. For starters, your lawsuit must be filed in court. This helps our underwriters validate your claim as legitimate.
Secondly, you must have an attorney or law firm on your case. While you certainly have the right to represent yourself in a lawsuit, that is not the recommended method. Even after attorney fees, injured people almost always get a much bigger compensation package if they have a lawyer on their side. Plus, High Rise Financial works directly with your attorney when it comes time for repayment.
Here’s how the repayment process works.
- Your lawsuit settles, or you are awarded compensation in court.
- Your attorney gets a check for the compensation amount from the at-fault party.
- Out of that check, your attorney writes High Rise Financial a check for the agreed upon repayment amount, then takes out their lawyer’s fees.
- You keep the rest of the compensation package!
Not only do you not have to worry about scheduling repayment, but this also means you don’t have to pay us back at all if you wind up losing your case. Unlike a lawsuit loan, you won’t be on the hook for monthly payments if you get no compensation.
