Lawsuit Funding Helps Plaintiffs Endure the Process
Lawsuit loans allow plaintiffs to pay their expenses while their attorneys work on their behalf. Middlesex County lawsuit loans level the playing field between plaintiffs and deep pocketed insurance companies which defend against their claims.
Middlesex County Location and Background
Middlesex County is located in central eastern New Jersey and is urban, suburban and farmland. Middlesex County borders Monmouth County to the south, Mercer County to the southwest, Union County to the north and Staten Island, New York over the Arthur Kill to the east. People travel to Staten Island over the Outerbridge Crossing which opened in 1928 linking Perth Amboy, NJ to Charleston, Staten Island. Due to its proximity to New York, many consider Middlesex County to be part of the New York metropolitan area.
Middlesex County is New Jersey’s third most populated county with over 850,000 residents according to the 2020 United States Census. The county seat, New Brunswick, is home to county offices and the Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex County.
New Brunswick is home to Rutgers University, officially known as Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Rutgers is thirteenth on the list of oldest colleges in the United States and consists of four campuses including Piscataway, another Middlesex County locale and home to Rutgers University Football Stadium and sports facilities. The others include Newark, Camden and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, which is considered a “campus” for organizational purposes although their geographic locations are spread across the state.

Many of Middlesex County’s smallest towns are densely populated with numbers which compare to many big cities in the nation. The large mass of people means results in many different examples of human expression. There is no shortage of art, music, and culinary expressions throughout Middlesex County.
Unfortunately, a large amount of people in a small area has its downside. In central New Jersey, residents can expect more dangerous conditions on roadways and thus more accidents. In fact, according to the NJ Department of Transportation, Middlesex County had over 18,000 crashes in 2020 and over 28,000 before Covid-19 in 2019. Of those crashes, over 4,000 reported injuries in 2020.
Car accidents inevitably result in lawsuits where injured parties file suit seeking compensation for their injuries. The process is time consuming, especially in urban areas where the amount of cases overwhelms the courts’ ability to judge them. Plaintiffs usually wait years before their claims resolve. This is true even if liability is clear and their injuries are substantial. Many are injured and no longer able to work leaving them in financial straights.
Insurance companies represent the majority of defendants in personal injury lawsuits. Insurers know full well that plaintiffs are hurting financially. They sometimes use this situation to force plaintiffs to accept low-ball settlement offers so that they can make ends meet.
Middlesex County lawsuit loans attempt to level the playing field and are a solution to this problem.
What is a Middlesex County Lawsuit Loan?
Lawsuit loans are financial transactions where plaintiffs sell a portion of their lawsuit proceeds before they receive them. Lawsuit funding companies advance money prior to settlement so plaintiffs can pay for:
- groceries and living expenses
- medical treatment and surgery
- transportation costs
- and a host of others. . .
In fact, there are no limits to the use of lawsuit loans in Middlesex or anywhere else because it is the plaintiffs money. They are just accessing it sooner.
Differences between loans and lawsuit loans
Lawsuit loans are not “loans” in the traditional sense since repayment depends on the plaintiff winning the case. Instead, they are a partial assignment of rights to the settlement proceeds. If the case is lost, the lawsuit loan is not repaid since there is no settlement. What was “purchased” no longer exists. For this reason, lawsuit loans are referred to as non-recourse settlement advances. That is, the lawsuit must be the source of the repayment. A lawsuit lender cannot pursue the plaintiff personally for repayment.
