Settled Case Funding
Post Settlement Funding grants you access to your cash in 3 easy steps.
Post-settlement funding involves a loan given to individuals who have been awarded a cash settlement for their personal injury case but have not yet received a check.
It’s common for an insurance company or other entity to delay payment on a settlement. Insurance companies usually need to follow an administrative procedure before they can advance proceeds for a successful claim.
Obtaining post-settlement funding can provide immediate cash to pay your outstanding bills and put you in a better financial position while awaiting your entire settlement.
Post-settlement cash advances are available for all types of personal injury cases and commercial litigation, including cases involving medical malpractice, civil rights, and auto accidents. Other types of cases may qualify as well.
Pre-settlement funding is a type of lawsuit funding that involves obtaining a cash advance based on the expected value of a settlement. Most pre-settlement funding occurs well before a case is settled through the legal process.
To get pre-settlement loans, the accident victim and their attorney must provide the funding company with information related to a current lawsuit.
Information commonly requested includes documentation of the court filing, information on how an injury occurred, and details from the treating doctor, such as hospital and medical records. The law firm is heavily involved in the approval process to obtain the loan and may be asked to provide an expected value for the settlement.
Based on the information provided, lending specialists and the underwriting team review the facts to determine how much money can be provided through pre-settlement loans. The loan amount is determined entirely based on the case — no credit check is required. Typically, the amount of legal funding is up to 20% of the expected value of the settlement.
A post-settlement lawsuit loan is available after a settlement agreement has already been reached. Suppose the insurance company is dragging its feet on payment or other factors prevent an accident victim from obtaining the compensation for their settled case. In that situation, a post-settlement loan can help ease the financial burden.
The application process for obtaining post-settlement funding is similar to a lawsuit loan. The plaintiffs involved will need to fill out an online application and provide information relating to the case, including court documents, medical records, and copies of the settlement award.
The attorney for the plaintiff will also be required to speak to the funding specialists regarding the circumstances of the case. Once Stonewood Funding has all of the information needed for the application process, we will determine whether you qualify for post-settlement loans.
Following application approval, a loan agreement outlining the terms and conditions of the loan will be provided. Once both the plaintiff and the attorney have signed the loan agreement, the loan will be deposited into the plaintiff’s bank account for a fast cash advance.

How It Works: Just 3 Easy Steps!
Post settlement funding grants you a cash advance on your settled case.
The legal system isn’t particularly known for speed. Obtaining a settlement award for a personal injury case can take months, if not years.
In the meantime, you may be in a sticky financial position, trying to cover your general living expenses and medical bills. In such situations, many people turn to pre-settlement funding to obtain the money they need to pay bills.
Even once you’ve obtained a lawsuit settlement award, it can take time to get your money. Insurance companies and courts can further hold up your settlement check, leaving you wondering how you will make your mortgage payments and pay other upfront expenses and bills.
Fortunately, post-settlement funding is available. Funding companies provide post-settlement loans based on the value of your settlement after your court case has concluded. You can use post-settlement financing to meet your monetary needs while waiting for your settlement check to arrive — regardless of how long it takes for you to get paid what you are owed.
