False Arrest Lawsuit Loans Help Plaintiffs
False arrest lawsuit loans are cash advances on pending false arrest lawsuits. The money can be used to bridge the gap between the start of the lawsuit and ultimate recovery. False arrest lawsuit loans help plaintiffs pay for expenses while they endure the long, drawn out litigation process.
False Arrests in the United States
A false arrest is essentially an unlawful detention, most often by law enforcement. It is the restraint of an individual without legal justification. Police cannot detain a person without reasonable suspicion. Police are prohibited from arresting someone without a lawfully issued warrant or when there are no articulable facts that would cause a reasonable officer to believe the individual has committed a crime.
Proving false arrest can be tricky but generally involves showing the following:
- the defendant intended to and actually did detain the plaintiff
- the plaintiff was aware of the detention
- the plaintiff did not consent to the detention
- the detention had no legal justification
False arrest cases in the United States are routinely filed alleging damages from the violation of a person’s civil rights.
False Arrest Lawsuits Offer Some Relief
False arrest lawsuits can be brought under 42 U.S. Code § 1983, also known as the Civil Rights Act. It reads:
Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress…
§ 1983 cases are normally brought against government actors. However, false arrest cases can also be brought against private parties such as security guards, bouncers or other employees. Some additional claims may also be brought simultaneously. These might include intentional torts such as assault and battery or intentional infliction of emotional distress. Claims against the employer might include failure to train their employees properly, improper hiring or similar counts. These counts are based in negligence law.
False Arrest Lawsuit Loans Fight Against Delays in Justice
Litigation of false arrest claims can be a long process. First, they can involve multiple parties, the testimony of which must be memorialized through interrogatories, depositions and affidavits. Second, false arrest cases involve complex issues such as the application of qualified immunity.
Third, and perhaps most importantly, many false arrest lawsuits are filed in large urban areas. These areas have only so many resources available to adjudicate civil disputes causing an enormous backlog of cases. This backlog causes delays in justice. A plaintiff can expect to wait several years before their case is heard.
Meanwhile, those injured by false arrests still have to pay their bills. And in some instances, these plaintiffs endure financial stress on top of an already stressful situation. This unfortunate scenario plays out repeatedly in this country, leaving some plaintiffs agreeing to less than fair compensation simply to conclude the process. False arrest lawsuit loans were created to address this concern.

What are False Arrest Lawsuit Loans?
False arrest lawsuit loans are specialty finance transactions in which a plaintiff sells a portion of the future settlement of the case to a lawsuit funding company. In return, the plaintiff receives immediate cash to pay for expenses such as:
- Rent or housing payments
- Insurance premiums
- School tuition
- Past debt
- Car payments
- and more . . .
Because false arrest lawsuit loans are not actually loans, there are no restrictions on the money’s use. Instead, they are used at the plaintiff’s discretion. It’s the plaintiff’s money, they just receive a part of it prior to settlement.
