The Benefits of Lawsuit Loans

We think legal funding is an excellent choice for clients who are in the midst of a lengthy lawsuit. Here’s why.

1. Risk-Free Money

The best part about lawsuit loans is that, with Tribeca, the funding is all non-recourse. That means:

  • Your bank account is NOT a source for repayment.
  • You are NOT held personally liable for the debt.
  • If you lose your case, you don’t owe us anything!

The loan uses a portion of your eventual settlement or jury award as its collateral. Since it is non-recourse, the most we can accept as repayment is that portion of your settlement.

2. Quick Approval Process

Pre-settlement funding is designed to help clients who need cash now. In many cases, Tribeca can have money in your bank account in as little as 24 hours after your application is approved.

Here’s an added bonus: since repayment for lawsuit loans comes directly out of your compensation package, the application process strictly deals with the merits of your claim. That means there is NO:

  • Credit check
  • Requirement to submit bank statements
  • Proof of income requirement
  • Denials based on credit history

3. No Restrictions on Spending

Lawsuit loans are great because they are not tied to any specific service. You don’t have to use them for limited purposes. Instead, you can use the money however you see fit, including paying for:

  • Rent or mortgage
  • Food and transportation costs
  • Medical bills
  • Property repair or replacement expenses
  • Daily needs

The Cons of Lawsuit Loans

Though we think legal funding is a safe, effective way to get the money you need, there are some factors you should consider before applying.

1. Interest

Yes, lawsuit loans also charge interest. However, Tribeca is dedicated to providing funding to clients in the most ethical, least expensive form. That’s why we only charge simple interest rates rather than the pricier compound rates charged by some of our competitors.

We can’t say what your interest rate will be, as it changed based on the qualities of your case. But we can say that we’ll always offer you the lowest possible rate.

2. Diminished Compensation

Repayment for your lawsuit loan comes out of your eventual compensation package. So while you might end up earning a settlement of $2 million, for instance, you only keep what is left after you repay your initial legal funding.

Still, it’s important to remember that this isn’t technically a lessening of your compensation. You’ve just received a portion of it sooner with your lawsuit loan rather than all at once at the end of your case!
