There are a ton of options on the market for a borrower in need of extra cash. Some, like lawsuit loans or risky cash advances, are designed to help the lender rather than the borrower. However, non-recourse loans come with restrictions that make them safer for you. Pre-settlement legal funding is a form of non-recourse debt, but there is one significant difference: in order to get pre-settlement legal funding, you have to be in the midst of a valid lawsuit.
If you have a personal injury lawsuit in the works and are waiting through the long negotiation period, or an extended trial proceeding, you may need cash now. High Rise Financial offers pre-settlement legal funding for people in your position. Our underwriters will analyze your application and have money in your bank account in as little as 24 hours.

What Non-Recourse Means
“Recourse,” in a legal sense, is defined by Merriam-Webster as “the right to demand payment.” When you take out a recourse loan, the lender can continue to dog you for payment even after they take whatever collateral is associated with the loan (as long as the collateral does not fully satisfy the value of what you owe. Here’s an example using a recourse home loan from a bank.
- You take out a recourse loan from a bank so that you can purchase your house.
- The house is used as collateral on the loan.
- Eventually, you default on repayment and the bank takes the house.
- Unfortunately, the value of your house does not cover the amount you owe on your loan.
- Therefore, the bank continues to demand payment, and starts taking some of your weekly paycheck.
The category into which the Internal Revenue Service divides types of debt is “non-recourse.” With this kind of debt, which includes pre-settlement legal funding from High Rise Financial, the borrower is not held personally liable. The lender cannot continue to pursue or demand payment after taking any collateral.

When you get pre-settlement legal funds from High Rise Financial, you are taking out a non-recourse loan. Our repayment comes directly from your eventual settlement or jury award at the end of your case, and you are not held personally liable. Perhaps the most significant way this protects you is:
If you lose your lawsuit, you owe us nothing!

You Get Your Money
Pre-settlement legal funding is yours as soon as it hits your bank account. Unlike other forms of lending, such as medical funding, you do not have to use it on any specific expense. Spend the money as you need, on stuff like:
- Repairing or replacing a damaged vehicle
- Providing food for you and your family
- Paying off medical bills
- Paying tuition for school
- Covering daily expenses like gas, etc.
Your Attorney Pays Us Back
Once your case resolves, your attorney will get a check for the agreed upon compensation amount from the opposing party. They then write High Rise Financial a check for repayment, take their attorney’s fees, and send you the rest.
Remember, High Rise Financial charges a flat fee rather than compound interest. Also, clients with an attorney almost always get a much larger compensation than they would otherwise receive, even after paying a lawyer’s fees.
