Personal injury lawsuits can take years to resolve, but bills and daily expenses don’t wait. While you are stuck with a pending settlement or a seemingly never-ending trial, unable to work because of your injuries, you and your family may suffer even more with financial stresses. There are many options on the market for people in your position, and it’s possible to get an advance on your pending settlement. However, the best choice is to get pre-settlement legal funding from High Rise Financial.
We work directly with your attorney, so you don’t have to remember any monthly payments. Plus, unlike other risky options like lawsuit loans or cash advances, which have been decried as predatory by the Center for Public Integrity, pre-settlement legal funding is non-recourse. That means you are protected from personal liability and won’t put your personal finances in danger by getting money from us.

Types of Cases That Qualify
In order to protect our underwriters and our clients, High Rise Financial has a few requirements that your case must meet before we can provide you with pre-settlement legal funding. The main qualifications are listed below.
Have a Personal Injury Claim
We specialize in providing funding for personal injury claimants. That’s a wide area of law, but it includes cases related to:
- Dog bites
- Auto accidents
- Slip and fall injuries
- Nursing home negligence
- Medical malpractice
- Product liability (defective products)
- Medical device injuries (such as a hip implant or transvaginal mesh lawsuits)
File Your Lawsuit in Court
In order to get pre-settlement legal funding as an advance on a future settlement, you must have a legitimate lawsuit filed in court. That doesn’t mean you have to actually go to trial, and most personal injury claims settle before ever setting foot in a courtroom. However, filing the lawsuit in court makes the claim official.
Hire an Attorney
High Rise Financial works directly with your attorney to handle your pre-settlement legal funding. As such, we require all clients to have an attorney or law firm representing the case before we can provide funding. Not only does this add validity to your claim, but it’s just a good idea. With an attorney on your side, you stand to make a much more appropriate compensation package than you otherwise would.
Here’s how we work with your attorney:
- We provide you with the money you need, quickly.Your lawyer finishes negotiating a settlement or takes your case to trial.
- When the case has resolved, your attorney gets a check from the at-fault party for the settlement or jury award amount.
- Your attorney writes High Rise Financial a check for the agreed-upon repayment amount out of this recovery package.
- You keep the rest, without having to worry about monthly payments or compound interest!
Your Money When You Need It
Pre-settlement legal funding is a way to get an advance on your settlement now rather than having to wait for the at-fault party to take responsibility and pay what you are owed. At High Rise Financial, our underwriters have approved up to $250,000 in cases that merit that amount. What goes into our assessment of how much funding we can provide? Our decision is based on the facts of your case, including:
- The seriousness of your injury (loss of limb, permanent disability, paralysis, etc.)
- The monetary damages you’ve incurred (medical bills, property damage, etc.)
- Your expected settlement amount (based on your attorney’s calculations)
Perhaps more notably, our decision is NOT based on your personal finances. That means:
- NO credit check
- NO employment verification
- NO invasive look at your family’s income
- NO bank statements or tax records
Other forms of a cash advance, like lawsuit loans, lock you into repayment based on your personal finances. This can leave you stuck paying back your advance even if you lose your case.
With pre-settlement legal funding from High Rise Financial, you don’t owe us anything if you lose your lawsuit. That’s why we say pre-settlement funding is no-risk.
