Why do you need a lawyer to get lawsuit funding? Because lawyers win a substantially higher percentage of personal injury cases with larger settlements than people who represent themselves. Since legal funding lenders don’t get paid unless you win your case, they take a huge risk when they give you the cash advance. Our lenders have to be sure that you will win your case, and having an attorney provides far greater assurance of a successful outcome. 

What If I Don’t Have an Attorney?

All reputable lawsuit loan companies in Florida, New York, Massachusetts, and other east coast states require you to have a lawyer for your personal injury case. You simply cannot get any type of pre-settlement funding unless you have an attorney. This is primarily because of the inherent risk and uncertainty involved in injury claims.

Lawsuit loans are technically not a loan; they are non-recourse fundings. This means the lender doesn’t have any recourse if they don’t receive repayment from the case settlement. As funding providers, we carry all of the risks. If you lose your case and don’t get any compensation from the other party, we are also unable to get paid back.  

Another risk for us is regarding the amount: if the judge or jury awards you a lower amount than what you asked for, it may not be enough to cover all your expenses. In this case, we may not receive the full amount that we loaned you.

Hire an Attorney to Win a Higher Settlement

Therefore, if you haven’t yet hired an attorney to represent you, do so right away. It will not only increase your likelihood of winning your case and receiving a larger settlement but will also make you eligible for a fast lawsuit loan from Direct Legal Funding.
