Do you fund Workers Compensation Claims?

Is the funding considered a “loan” which I must eventually pay back?

The advance is NOT a loan, which implies repayment at some point in the future. Lawsuit settlement funding is deemed “non-recourse”. This means that if there is no recovery, the funding is NOT repaid.

What actual out of pocket or monthly expenses are due from me?

There are NO monthly payments for you to make. Neither are there any upfront costs. The only cost to you is when your case settles. At that time, your attorney repays the amount due on the contract.

How long does the process take?

Every case is different but we routinely fund clients within 24-48 hours of their submission. Cash is then forwarded via overnight delivery or immediately with a bank wire.

What is the minimum/maximum advance that I can take?

The minimum cash advance amount is $500. The maximum amount on each case depends on the case but there is NO absolute maximum amount available.
