Top Questions You Should Ask Before Getting Lawsuit Settlement Funding

Top Questions You Should Ask Before Getting Lawsuit Settlement Funding

At Ally Lawsuit Loans, we recommend that all our clients consult with their attorney before applying for legal financing with our firm.

Regardless of your application’s details, we will always need to talk to your attorney before approving your loan. We talk to your attorney to do a few things.

Namely, our purpose is to learn more about your case. The important information we need includes details like:

  • The entire narrative of your case from an outside perspective;
  • Your case’s chances of success or settling out of court; and
  • An estimation of the potential value of your claim.

We learn more about your case and its chances of success to determine whether we can viably finance your claim. If you lose your claim, after all, we cannot recoup our expenses in your case.

In the same way, we look at your claim’s potential value to determine how much we can offer to loan you. If we loan you more than your claim is worth, again we won’t recoup all our expenses.

Always Consult With Your Attorney

While we won’t deny your application outright if you neglect to speak with your attorney before applying, we highly recommend you do. That way, your lawyer is not caught off guard by our call, and everything will go as smoothly as possible.

More than that, however, it is important to speak with your attorney to learn more about legal funding and lawsuit loans in general.

Your lawyer is the third party to our transaction, so they have every incentive to give you their honest opinion. They also know what, perhaps, we don’t know about your case, and they may be able to offer some insight or advice.

The best way to approach your lawyer about legal funding is to do so with a list of questions in mind. That way, you won’t forget anything.

If you’re not sure where to start with your list of questions, feel free to borrow from our list of important questions you should ask before getting lawsuit funding.

State Limits and Restrictions

Always ask your attorney about your own state’s regulations on legal funding. While not all 50 states heavily regulate the legal funding industry, some do.

Some states allow lawsuit loans only for specific types of civil cases, while others limit interest rates. Your lawyer can tell you all the relevant regulations.

Prior Experience

Get an insider’s op[inion by asking your attorney about previous clients who have used lawsuit loans. Is it common? What was their experience? Are there any lenders you should watch out for? These are all valid and pertinent questions.

Reasonable Fees and Interest Rates

Talk to your attorney about what fees and interest rates are reasonable given your case’s circumstances. Your lawyer can help you parse through different loan agreements and help you spot any hidden or otherwise unreasonable fees.

The Value of Your Claim

Always ask your attorney how much your claim is worth. The value of your claim will end up dictating the amount of money you can borrow, so it helps to have a ballpark estimate beforehand. Always keep in mind that any estimate is just an estimate.

Your Case’s Chance of Success

Like your claim’s value, your chances of success will impact your lawsuit loan. If your case is likely to lose, your lawyer will know and tell you that your loan may not get approval.

If you find yourself in this situation, make sure you verify with your attorney that it is worth the time and effort to fight for your claim.

These clients leave happier because they did not run into any surprises in the lending process. That’s why we are available 24/7 to assist current and future borrowers when they need help. And that’s why we publish pertinent information on our website. One of the most common and important questions that we field has to do with the nature of lawsuit loans. Many people wonder, Is legal funding a loan? Why or why not? The answer to this question is yes, but with a caveat. Yes, lawsuit loans are loans, but they differ from traditional loans in one key area: collateral. Our team put together this informative blog to help explain this answer further. Please continue reading if you’d like to gain an understanding of what some consider the crucial component of lawsuit funding. How Does Legal Finance Work? There are quite a few different monikers for lawsuit loans. Legal financing, pre-settlement funding, and lawsuit funding are all acceptable ways of describing lawsuit loans and the industry surrounding them.  As noted earlier, legal funding is by all definitions, a type of loan. One party borrows money from another with the intention of paying them back. If the money isn’t paid back, the borrower defaults. But then what happens? What happens if a borrower defaults? How can the lender recover their money? This is where lawsuit loans differentiate themselves from traditional loans. A traditional loan is what we call a “recourse loan.” If a borrower defaults, the lender can seek repayment (recourse) through any of the borrower’s assets—including their bank account, their house, investments, etc. In other words, the collateral for the loan includes the entirety of a borrower's assets.  Conversely, a lawsuit loan is what we call a “non-recourse loan.” In the event of a default, the lender can only seek repayment through a specific item that was put up for collateral. The lender cannot touch any of the borrower’s other assets. Lenders and borrowers can put up any sort of collateral they want to secure their loan. A lawsuit loan is a specific type of non-recourse loan where the collateral is only the future settlement of a legal claim. Therefore, if you default on your lawsuit loan by failing to settle the case out of court or losing at trial—you don’t owe Ally Lawsuit Loans a single penny. That’s the main difference between a lawsuit loan and most other loans.

Zofran Lawsuit—Pre-settlement Loans

| Read Time: 4 minutes

In recent years, GlaxoSmithKline has found itself in legal defense over one of its more popular pharmaceutical drugs. To date, more than 400 women have come forward to sue GlaxoSmithKline over its pharmaceutical drug, Zofran.  Zofran, the most widely used anti-nausea medication prescribed to pregnant women, has cost countless individuals untold damage. As it turns out, the morning sickness drug was linked to an increased risk in birth defects in unborn children.  As we do with any drug that is taken by pregnant women, we expect that manufacturers and marketers of the product would be as diligent as possible in understanding how the drug in question affects both an unborn child and their mother. We don’t just do this with prescription medications either. We have the same expectation when it comes to anything that a pregnant woman ingests. So we would expect that the manufacturer of a popular morning medication treatment would go to great lengths to ensure the safety of their product for unborn children, right? Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. The Zofran Lawsuits: What’s Happening? Recent studies have shown a link between higher rates of birth defects and the use of Zofran. That’s what more than 400 women have come forward to sue GlaxoSmithKline over. If you were similarly affected by Zofran, that’s what you should do too. Of course, if you are already on this webpage, you probably know about the Zofran lawsuits already. If you are in the process of filing one, you won’t want to miss out on Zofran settlement funding from Ally Lawsuit Loans while your case works itself through the legal claim’s process. Zofran Lawsuit Payouts: How Can They Help Me with Medical Payments? Essentially, a lawsuit loan from Ally can give you financial flexibility now. Let’s face it. Pregnancies are expensive and can easily strain a household’s finances. You may only receive part of your normal income while you are on maternity leave, and your spouse may have to do the same. Add to that the costs of having a baby, and you can easily find yourself in a position of financial instability. That’s without even taking into account the additional costs that inevitably arise when your infant needs special care. This is the case, in particular when your baby is born with a medical condition. Powerful parties, like prescription drug manufacturers, often assume that individual litigants in liability cases are in a financial pinch. Knowing this, they try to weaponize the financial distress by trying to coerce people into accepting low ball settlement offers. The settlement offers don’t cover the entirety of the litigant’s expenses, but the powerful party hopes that they will accept the low ball settlement out of financial necessity. After all, those medical bills are due when they are due, and interest adds up quickly. You Don’t Have to Accept Low Ball Offers With a lawsuit loan in your pocket from Ally, you can reject the low ball settlement offers you receive. Then, you can fight for the full Zofran lawsuit payouts you deserve. In other words: pay the bills you need to pay now, avoid high-interest rates, and pay us back when you win or settle your Zofran birth defects lawsuit. Legal funding is similar to other types of loans, but with a much lower risk profile. With most loans, in the event of a default, your lender can seize any property they need to cover the debt. This is what is known as “recourse funding.” The same is not true for lawsuit settlement loans. Lawsuit settlement loans, also known as pre-settlement loans or funding, are a form of non-recourse loan. When you take out a non-recourse loan, you put up a specific item or items for collateral. Your lender can seize only those assets or items in the event of a default. With a lawsuit loan, the collateral you put up is nothing other than the eventual settlement of your claim. Whether you win the case in court or settle out of court, your Zofran lawsuit payout is the only item of collateral your lender can seek repayment through. The practical implications of non-recourse loans in the settlement loans industry is huge for consumers. Why? Because if you do not win or settle out of court, you don’t owe a penny. That’s right: if you lose your case, you keep the loan, no strings attached. How Do I Qualify for Zofran Settlement Funding? Qualifying for pre-settlement funding for your Zofran birth defect lawsuit is a quick and easy process. All you have to do is fill out our website's easy application. We ask for your personal information and your attorney’s information: no credit check, no employment check, and no income verification. After you fill out the application, we get in touch with your attorney to learn a bit more about your case and to verify the information. If you have an attorney and you are filing a Zofran lawsuit, you meet the general requirements for a Zofran settlement loan. Best of all, you can qualify for your loan in just 24 hours or less! Don’t Let Those Medical Bills Pile Up Don’t let your medical bills rack up copious amounts of interest. Instead, take control of your financial stability and protect more of your Zofran lawsuit payout with pre-settlement funding from Ally Lawsuit Loans.
