As our society continues to strive to “form a more perfect union” and “establish justice,” we must continue to reject incidents of discrimination and harassment based on ignorance and hatred. If you are the plaintiff in a civil rights lawsuit and fear you cannot afford to continue your fight for justice, civil rights legal funding from Tribeca Lawsuit Loans can provide the cash you need to pay your bills while you give your attorney the time necessary to get you the compensation you deserve.
Why Legal Funding Is Critical for Civil Rights Cases
Filing a civil rights lawsuit is a courageous act that benefits all of society. When you stand up for your rights and refuse to accept treatment that divides you from those deserving dignity and fairness, you help to make all of society a bit more just. Civil rights violations fracture and fragment our society by creating divisions based on inherent qualities like race, color, religion, sexuality, gender, age, or disability.
Whether you are naming a government entity, municipality, organization, or individual in your civil rights lawsuit, you may be owed significant amounts of compensation. In many cases, the courts use these lawsuits to make examples of bad actors and enforce our civil rights legacy.
For example, the family of George Floyd recently received a record settlement of $27 million from the city of Minneapolis following his death at the hands of police officers. However, it may take years before your attorney can arrive at a suitable settlement agreement, and the opposing party is likely to fight to avoid paying such high amounts.
Launching a civil rights lawsuit is a noble act, but it can also be a costly one. Between backlogged court dockets and deliberate stalling by the defendants’ counsel, your case can take several years to resolve. Meanwhile, you may have debts relating to your cause of action or be out of work and facing mounting bills and increasing financial stress. Civil rights legal funding acts as a cash advance on your future civil rights settlement, so you can pay your current expenses and alleviate some anxiety.
Types of Civil Rights Lawsuit Loans
Civil rights lawsuits are becoming more frequent as society pushes for social change and justice. These lawsuits can take many forms. Of course, the specifics of each case matter, but they all have a few points in common — each is painful, incredibly slow to resolve, and costly. And each just resolution makes our society a bit fairer. Tribeca Lawsuit Loans funds all of the following types of civil rights lawsuits and more:
- Sexual harassment
- False arrest
- Wrongful imprisonment
- Police brutality
- Police misconduct
- Hate crimes
- Employment discrimination
- Housing discrimination
- Equal Credit Opportunity Act violations
- Disability discrimination
Tribeca funds all of these cases as well as mass torts based on civil rights. Any discrimination based on race, color, religion, sexuality, gender, age, or disability is anathema to a democracy. We are eager to provide the funding you need to fight for justice. Civil rights legal funding is 100% risk-free for you, the borrower. And, best of all, it can help you get a better settlement!
Civil Rights Lawsuit Loans Are 100% Risk-Free for You
When you’re in a financial hole, wisdom suggests you should stop digging. How, then, can a civil rights lawsuit loan be a responsible step? Because legal funding is quite different from conventional loans like a car loan or credit card debt. All of our lawsuit loans are structured as non-recourse loans.
With a non-recourse loan, the loan’s collateral is the sole source of funds that can be used to repay the loan. In a civil rights lawsuit, your future compensation is the collateral on the loan. Instead of a typical loan, it is essentially a cash advance on your future settlement, and that settlement is the only way allowed to repay the debt. This means you are not personally liable for the debt associated with the loan. Simply put:
- We CAN NOT be repaid out of your bank account or personal finances.
- We CAN NOT seize your assets or property for repayment, apart from the agreed-upon portion of your compensation package.
- We CAN NOT garnish wages to recover repayment.
Of course, if you take some money from your future civil rights settlement to pay your current bills, you will have less of the settlement left. But you are not personally liable for the loan. In fact, you DO NOT have to repay the lawsuit loan at all if you end up losing your case!
Because we will never see a dime of your own money, our civil rights lawsuit loan application requires:
- NO credit check
- NO income verification
- NO asset evaluation
While some legal lending companies will pry into your personal finances, we leave your private financial information private. The quality of your case is our only concern.
How Can Civil Rights Case Funding Get Me a Better Settlement?
With civil rights legal funding from Tribeca, you’ll have the money you need to meet your current expenses while allowing your legal team to fight on to get you the best possible settlement. This blunts the defense’s most powerful weapon — delay.
Here’s the scenario at work: First, your civil rights were violated, so you filed a civil rights lawsuit — the remedy our society provides. Unfortunately, the courts are backlogged, and the process is slow going. So, you prepare yourself for a long wait. However, the person or agency who violated your rights doesn’t want to face the judgment of the courts or the financial compensation your case entitles you to. So, the defense attorney stalls, using any tactic possible to delay.
If you are facing financial hardship resulting either from the damage done to you or the lawsuit, the defense will try to weaponize your financial burdens against you, hoping you’ll agree to a much smaller settlement now than your case warrants. The defense counsel hopes your mounting stress forces you to accept a lowball offer of about 30% of your civil rights lawsuit’s value. In effect, the defendant exploits you all over again. And these stall tactics are both legal and highly effective.
Through our civil rights case funding, you can pay your bills and meet your financial needs despite the defense’s delay tactics. And, since we will be invested in the successful outcome of your case, we’ll be looking for additional ways we can help your case. For instance, we may provide your attorney with case funding for expert witnesses and other steep litigation costs that can further strengthen your case.
If you are ready to get pre-settlement funding up to $2 million while you wait for your civil rights lawsuit to resolve, Tribeca Lawsuit Loans has got you covered. Fill out our FREE application form on our Apply Now page or call our office at (866) 388-2288.
Use Civil Rights Legal Funding to Cover Your Expenses
Victims of civil rights abuse deserve justice but are often hit with even more suffering. As you pursue a civil rights lawsuit, seeking compensation and reform, you may lose income from missing work, have a rise in healthcare costs associated with any injury you have received, and still have to deal with all your everyday expenses.
You can use the money from a civil rights lawsuit loan however you see fit, including paying for items like:
- Medical bills
- Rent or mortgages
- Daily costs such as food and transportation
- Legal fees, such as expert witness payments
In short, pre-settlement funding, like a civil rights lawsuit loan, serves as replacement income. It’s your money to spend however you choose.
How Much Can You Receive from a Civil Rights Lawsuit Loan?
Legal funding allows you to access a portion of your eventual compensation package to provide for your needs in the here and now. The amount we provide depends entirely on the facts of your case, including:
- The amount of damages for which you are suing
- Your expected settlement amount or jury award (using precedents from similar cases)
- How long your lawsuit is likely to take before resolving
- Any issues of liability that may affect your compensation
Until we examine the facts of your case and speak with your attorney, we cannot say how much we can loan you. However, we can tell you that Tribeca can lend eligible clients anywhere from $500 to $2 million in pre-settlement funding. So, apply today for free to see what we can offer you!
How Much Does Civil Rights Legal Funding Cost?
Just as we cannot say how much we can offer you in a civil rights lawsuit loan until we dig into the specifics of your case, we cannot say what the cost will be until you apply. However, we can assure you that we charge no hidden fees. Our interest rates are always flat, simple, and non-compounding.
Our goal is to ensure you keep as much of your compensation package as possible.
How Repayment of Civil Rights Legal Funding Works
Unlike conventional loans, you will not start a monthly payment program as soon as you receive your lawsuit loan. Since repayment can only come from your future settlement, we’re prepared to wait as long as we need to. Once your civil rights lawsuit concludes and you win a compensation package, your attorney will receive a check from the at-fault party for the settlement or jury award amount. Then, your lawyer writes Tribeca a check for the agreed-upon portion of your compensation package and deducts their fees. Then, you get the rest!
It’s that simple. No monthly payments, no risk of missing payments, and no hassle.
How to Apply for Civil Rights Legal Funding
Applying for civil rights case funding is easier than you might expect. Because this is a non-recourse loan, we dispense with any investigations into your credit history or finances. Instead, we just need some information about your case:
- Contact information for yourself and our attorney (or legal team)
- The nature of your civil rights lawsuit case
- The state where you are living
- How much money you would like to receive
Unlike many legal lending companies, we will speak with your legal team to better understand your case and learn how best we may be able to assist your team. We will work directly with your attorney, but we will never substitute our judgment for theirs.
To qualify for civil rights legal funding from Tribeca, we require that an attorney represent our clients. This is to protect both your interests and our own. Civil rights lawsuits prosecuted by an attorney are won far more often and with far larger compensation awards than the cases argued by individuals themselves.
How Long Does it Take to Get Civil Rights Case Funding?
We understand that by the time most people reach out for legal funding, their financial situation is dire. Therefore, we have streamlined our civil rights lawsuit loan application to make it as easy and fast as possible to get your money to you. The entire process is just three simple steps:
- You Apply: Visit our Apply Now page to fill in the requisite information
