Assault & Battery Lawsuit Funding and Settlement Loans

assault lawsuit settlement

Unfortunately, criminal assaults remain a serious problem.

According to data collected and published by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), nearly three million Americans were victims of violent criminal acts in 2017 alone.

An assault or battery can lead to very serious injuries.

To cover medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, injured victims have the right to file a lawsuit against all responsible parties — potentially including the criminal attacker and negligent property owners or businesses.

Of course, any person who has filed a lawsuit knows well: the legal claims process can be slow. Even if you have a strong case, it can still take many months, possibly longer, to get the full financial compensation that you deserve.

At the same time, your bills are not going to wait.

This is where legal funding offers a solution.

At Ally Lawsuit Loans, we provide the lowest cost assault lawsuit settlement loans — guaranteed.

Assault and Battery Lawsuit: Settlements

Assault and battery injury claims are notoriously complex.

While a plaintiff has the right to bring a lawsuit against a criminal attacker, often that defendant will not have much, if any, money available.

As such, these cases are often filed against other parties whose negligent conduct permitted or facilitated the attack — property owners, businesses, employers, security companies, school, etc.

Injured victims deserve full and fair financial compensation for their damages.

Depending on the specific circumstances of the case, a victim of assault or battery may be eligible to recover financial compensation for:

  • Property damage or property loss;
  • Emergency room treatment;
  • Other medical bills or health care expenses;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Rehabilitative care;
  • Lost wages;
  • Diminished earning potential;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental distress;
  • Scarring/disfigurement;
  • Permanent disability; and
  • Wrongful death of a family member.

Building a Case Takes Time — Pre-Settlement Funding Offers Immediate Support

It takes some time to prepare an effective personal injury lawsuit. As explained by the American Bar Association (ABA), the length of the personal injury claims can vary widely.

Though, the ABA notes that it typically takes between takes somewhere between three months and three years to resolve a case.

The more complicated the case and the more severe the victim’s injuries, the longer it usually takes to reach a settlement.

If you suffered severe injuries as a result of an assault or a battery, waiting for a settlement may cause you tremendous financial hardship.

Often, injured victims have stacks of medical bills and they may also be forced to miss time at work.

It is no surprise that it is easy for victims to fall behind on mortgage payments, other bills, and their day-to-day expenses.

Unfortunately, defendants and insurance companies will use this pressure as a tactic.

They know the plaintiffs want to speed up the claims process. They will try to get you to accept a lowball, unfair settlement.

A lawsuit loan can give you the financial breathing room that you need to let your lawyer build a winning case.

Is a Lawsuit Loan Actually a Loan?

| Read Time: < 1 minute

No. What we offer is a non-recourse cash advance against your potential lawsuit settlement. Non-recourse means that if you "lose" your lawsuit, and you don't get a settlement, you have no obligation to repay us. This is the key difference between what we offer and what is traditionally thought of as a loan. Because repayment is not required if you lose your case, a non-recourse cash advance is typically considered by our clients to be far more appealing than a loan. We use the language "lawsuit loan" – as do most all companies like ours – because a non-recourse cash advance is a relatively new type of financing that not many people are familiar with. We know from market research that when folks are looking for what we offer – a cash advance on a pending lawsuit settlement – they most often think of it as a loan, and so that's what they search for. We want to make sure that these folks can find what they are looking for, which is why we often refer to what we provide as "lawsuit loans". Have more questions about what we do? Don't hesitate to reach out.

Settlement Checks: How Long Can a Lawyer Hold Money in Escrow?

| Read Time: 2 minutes

Litigation can last for months or years, so you probably felt excitement when you finally reached a settlement. However, your settlement award may be harder to access than you imagined. For instance, some lawyers hold your settlement check for months, delaying your access to the cash you need. The settlement check process is one more hurdle you must overcome in resolving your claim. So how long can a lawyer hold money in escrow? We give you an overview of the settlement check process here. Four Steps to Getting a Settlement Check To get your settlement check, you must resolve these four matters. Signed Release Forms When you reach your settlement, you must sign a release form. This form is a legal document that states you will not pursue further legal action on the same claim. Expect to sign a release form for each defendant in your claim. Your lawyer will carefully review the terms of the release form before you sign, and you can request modifications if necessary. Delayed Payment State law should give the defendant a timeline for paying the settlement. Some defendants wait until the last moment allowed by state law to pay your settlement, causing delays in receiving the money you’re owed. Check Clearance When the defendant pays your settlement, the money goes to your lawyer, who holds it in an escrow account. The check may take up to a week to clear, and then the funds are available to pay debts. Once the check clears, your lawyer takes their fee from the funds and next pays other liens and lawsuit-related bills. Settlement Lien Payment During your lawsuit, parties may have placed liens on your settlement. A lien gives someone else the right to your property to pay a debt. For example, if you have unpaid medical bills, the hospital or doctor may place a lien on your settlement. Your lawyer will also use your settlement funds to pay expenses related to litigating your case, including: Expert witness fees,Private investigator fees, andMedical examinations.  Your lawyer can quickly pay most liens on your account once settlement funds are available. However, government liens, such as those from Medicaid, can take longer to resolve. After your money moves through these four steps in the settlement check process, your lawyer sends the remaining balance to you. Unfortunately, delays at each step can cause you to wait weeks or even months for access to your settlement funds.  Access Settlement Funds Faster If you need access to your settlement check sooner, Ally Lawsuit Loans can help. Ally Lawsuit Loans offers cash advances on your lawsuit settlement. You pay back the cash advance when you receive your settlement.  Here are some things you should know about Ally Lawsuit Loans: We offer the lowest rate guarantee in the industry; You pay nothing back if you lose your case; and You can qualify for a lawsuit loan within 24 hours.

How Much Is Your Slip and Fall Claim Worth?

| Read Time: 3 minutes

A slip and fall injury may seem like a relatively minor injury to some. However, if you have a slip and fall, you know that this isn’t always the case. Slip and fall injuries come in just about every form. Traumatic brain injury (TBI), paralysis, whiplash, and broken bones are just a few possible slip and fall injuries. Such injuries can be quite costly. According to the CDC, unintentional injuries cost Americans more than $450 billion per year in medical and work loss costs. Of those costs, more than one-third are from fall-related injuries. That means that fall-related injuries cost Americans about $150 billion per year. No metric would consider that amount insignificant. Lawsuit Loans Help While the Legal Process Runs Its Course If you have a slip and fall injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to recover damages. If you’re reading this, you likely plan on hiring a lawyer to file a lawsuit or have already done so. Settlements don’t happen overnight, but medical bills come quickly, and life won’t wait for your settlement payment.  If you’re filing a lawsuit and need financial assistance while you wait for your case to settle, a lawsuit loan is an excellent option. Ally Lawsuit Loans is an industry leader in pre-settlement funding. If you’re considering pre-settlement funding, you will want to know how much you should borrow. A good way to answer that question is to ask about typical slip and fall cases’ payouts. While each lawsuit is different, a few factors can help you estimate what your slip and fall claim is worth. Estimating the Worth of a Slip and Fall Claim To get a general idea of what your slip and fall claim is worth, the most important things to consider are the severity and type of injuries and damages. Generally, the more severe your injuries, the more your claim is worth. More costs bring a higher settlement. To illustrate what this may look like in practice, consider two hypothetical examples. Example One In the first example, consider you have a severe slip and fall accident. You hit your head, suffering a concussion, and break your ankle while falling. An ambulance takes you to the hospital. There, your ankle requires surgery and a three-day stay to monitor your potential brain injury. You miss work during that time. Once your hospital stay finishes, you can’t work for a month as you recover from your surgery. Furthermore, you need physical therapy for a few months to fully heal. Luckily, the concussion does not leave long-term effects. However, you see a brain injury specialist a couple of times to ensure that more serious problems are not lurking below the surface. Example Two Now, consider a less severe slip and fall accident. In this case, you slip on a wet spot at the supermarket and fracture your wrist. Your spouse drives you to your physician the next day so you can get an x-ray. You find out that you will need to wear a cast for a few weeks. You have to miss work during that time, but otherwise, you fully recover. Comparison These two examples are drastically different. As such, the settlement of their clams will also be drastically different. The first example requires surgery, emergency transport, a hospital stay, continuing care, and medical specialists. Such costs add up very quickly, so to fully recover damages, the claim’s settlement will be very high. Contrast this with the second example, where you saw a normal physician and missed work. While such medical bills are not insignificant and missed work requires compensation, the final settlement will be dramatically less than the first example. The best way to estimate your settlement amount is to add up all the injury’s various costs. Your Attorney Can Help You Estimate the Claim Amount Your attorney can help you estimate your final settlement amount. They know all the facts and circumstances of your case. With this information and their prior experience with similar cases, they can help you add up all your injury’s economic and non-economic costs to come up with an estimate of your final settlement amount.
