Almost all negligence cases are considered for funding. Other cases include discrimination, wrongful termination and contract disputes. Most personal injury cases are good candidates for lawsuit funding.

Is this a legal/ethical service that you provide?
Lawsuit funding allows individuals to enter into agreements to suit their needs. Lawsuit funding contracts clearly outline terms and repayment amounts. This way, all parties know what they are agreeing to. Nothing can be more ethical than allowing free individuals to decides what in their own best interests.
How expensive or costly is this to me?
Each case is unique and cost can vary. We generally charge as little as 18% on the contract amount every six months. Although costs tend to be more expensive than traditional loans, the risk is higher as well. More information on lawsuit loan rates and lawsuit loan cost can be found on this website.
