Lawsuit Funding Case Types from Fair Rate Funding
The legal system is designed to resolve disputes between parties. As the potential for dispute is part of what makes us human, there are a wide variety of lawsuit types
throughout the court system. Unfortunately for plaintiffs, not all lawsuits are candidates for lawsuit funding. Below are the top 5 lawsuit funding case types by Fair Rate Funding over the years.
Automobile Accident Lawsuit Funding
By far, the most common lawsuit funding case type we see applying for settlement loans are car accident cases. People involved in automobile accidents often suffer severe and permanent injuries which sometimes prevent the plaintiff from working. Monthly and other expenses continue to mount and clients need help just to stay above water. For these reasons, settlement funding for automobile cases is the highest in volume at our lawsuit loan offices.
Slip and Fall Lawsuit Funding
Slip and fall lawsuits are another common lawsuit funding case type. Like car accidents, applications for slip and fall lawsuits are plentiful. Also, severe injuries often result after a hard fall. These lawsuits are sometimes difficult to settle. That is, it may take a long time for the case to reach a fair settlement. Meanwhile, expenses still have to be paid, and those unfortunate plaintiffs who have liquidity needs turn to slip and fall lawsuit funding to help bridge the gap. Slip and fall lawsuit funding helps litigants who are unable to work or are otherwise incapable of meeting their monthly expenses.
Workers’ Compensation Lawsuit Funding
Most jurisdictions (States) have workers’ compensation laws to protect workers who are injured in the workplace. Workers’ Compensation statutes normally provide for medical treatment and a portion of the average weekly wage of the worker. Unfortunately, benefits may not adequately meet the needs of claimants. When expenses exceed available cash flow, litigants must search for additional sources of income to help make ends meet. Fortunately, lawsuit funding for workers’ compensation cases is an option for these individuals in certain jurisdictions.
Transvaginal Mesh Settlement Funding
The use of transvaginal mesh and slings (TV Mesh) to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) has been prevalent. Unfortunately, many severe complications resulted from its use. The logical outcome is a product liability lawsuit alleging a manufacturing and/or design defect in the product. Because of the large number of women who were implanted with TV mesh products (from various manufacturers), applications for pelvic mesh lawsuit settlement funding for these individuals has increased steadily in the last two years. Because of lawsuit funding, clients who suffer from complications form trans vaginal mesh (TV Mesh) products and who have a lawsuit, can afford to wait out the litigation process in order to receive a fair settlement.
Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Funding
Rounding out the top five lawsuit funding case types is one based on the malpractice of medical professionals. Doctors and nurses as well as other medical professionals are held to a certain standard of care in performing their duties as care givers for the sick, injured and/or elderly. Injured parties or even the heirs of a decedent may still encounter financial difficulties while a lawsuit is pending. Med Mal Lawsuit funding is one available solution available to plaintiffs involved in med mal lawsuits. Although medical malpractice lawsuits are usually very complicated, medical malpractice lawsuit funding can serve as a financial lifeline for plaintiffs.
