Losing a loved one to the negligence of someone else is a tragedy. Then, on top of your grief, you often have to wait through a laborious lawsuit process before getting the compensation you deserve.
If you are a surviving spouse or child of someone who passed away due to the actions or negligence of another person, you might file a wrongful death claim and wait months or even years for the claim to resolve.
Money will never replace your loved one, but having funds can help you and your family remain financially stable while your attorney holds the at-fault party accountable. High Rise Financial offers pre-settlement legal funding for surviving spouses and children, as well as other eligible family members who have filed a valid wrongful death lawsuit.
Our application process is entirely online, but please call our team at (866) 407-6404 if you have any questions about getting your money today.
Pre-Settlement Funding Is Different From a Lawsuit Loan
According to a report by the New York Times, lawsuit loans add risk to the injured. You may have heard of horror stories from people with personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits who took out a lawsuit loan and ended up paying back two to three times what they borrowed due to exorbitant interest rates and monthly fees.
Pre-settlement legal funding is not the same as a lawsuit loan. It has several key differences, most of which have to do with the risk involved. At High Rise Financial, we provide pre-settlement legal funding because this form of financial aid poses no risk to you.
Lawsuit loans are often recourse loans. This is a designation used by the Internal Revenue Service to categorize different types of debt. Here’s what you need to know.
- Recourse debt: the lender can take the loan’s collateral and continue to pursue payment from you if the collateral does not cover the full value you owe.
- Non-recourse debt: the lender cannot continue to pursue payment from you after collateral, even if the collateral falls short of the value you owe.
In other words, non-recourse debt does not hold you personally liable. For example, if you take out a non-recourse home loan from the bank and use the house as collateral, the most the bank could do if you default is to take your house. While that is not good, it is much better than a recourse loan, for which the bank could take your house, garnish your wages each month, and pursue other forms of debt collection.
Pre-settlement legal funding is non-recourse, which means that you do not have to pay us back if you do not win your lawsuit.
Your family is already grieving. You don’t need the hassle and privacy invasion of having a lender look through your finances, but that’s what can happen when you take out a lawsuit loan. Since many lawsuit loans force you to pay back your loan even if you get no compensation, their lending decision may be based on your personal finances. That means having to provide items like bank statements, proof of employment, and other data you may not be comfortable sharing.
High Rise Financial bases our decisions on your expected compensation package, since we are paid back for the funding we provide out of your eventual settlement or jury award. Since it’s not about your personal finances, we don’t need to invade your privacy!
- NO deep dive into your bank statements
- NO need to look at your tax returns
- NO monthly payment plans
- NO compound interest
- NO RISK!
