Police Brutality Lawsuit Loans Help Plaintiffs
Examples of police brutality are ever present in today’s media. With the number of law enforcement departments and officers, there is little wonder why. Regardless of the reasons behind police abuse of power, the problem exists. Police brutality lawsuit loans can be a partial solution.
Police Brutality Lawsuits Offer Partial Recourse
Victims of police brutality often have the grounds to file a lawsuit against the wrongdoers. Over a century ago, Congress passed the Civil Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1983 stating that any individual under state law depriving another of their “rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution” can face civil lawsuits. The Civil Rights Act allows an individual to sue any government official, including police officers, for violating their constitutional rights. Obviously, no amount of money can truly compensate individuals who were brutalized by overzealous officers. Yet § 1983 lawsuits can offer some relief in the form of monetary compensation. Cities and other municipalities pay millions of dollars each year in police brutality lawsuit settlements.
Other Problems With Police Brutality Lawsuits
Unfortunately, police brutality cases can take years to settle. There are several reasons for this.
First, police departments are often self-insured. Self-insured entities bear their own risk of loss for certain events. In the context of police brutality lawsuits, this means that police departments are even less willing to admit wrongdoing since they are on the hook for the bill.
This also often means municipalities are willing to spend vast resources defending these cases. Logically, an increase in the amount of time to resolve police brutality cases results.
Unfortunately, police brutality plaintiffs sometimes fall under financial stress and cannot afford to fight any longer. Many simply accept “low-ball” settlement offers to ease their financial pain. In this situation, police brutality lawsuit loans can be a solution.
What is a Police Brutality Lawsuit Loan?
A police brutality lawsuit loan is a financial transaction where police brutality plaintiffs seek advances on their lawsuits prior to settlement. They may need money to pay for everyday expenses but also for:
- Medical treatment
- Living expenses
- Rent or mortgage payments
- School tuition and/or fees
- Property damages
Police brutality lawsuit loans are a non-recourse financing option for litigants who have exhausted other methods of getting cash to meet their immediate needs. Non-recourse loans are different than traditional loans because lawsuit loans are not repaid if the case is not successful. In other words, the financing company cannot pursue the plaintiff personally for repayment of the advance. The lawsuit is the SOLE source of repayment of a police brutality lawsuit settlement loan.
