Rent won’t wait for your settlement. Why should you?
How It Works
Pre-Settlement Funding grants you quick access to funds in 3 easy steps.
Need cash before your case settles? There is no fee to apply, and you owe us nothing if you lose your case.
Pre-settlement funding is not a traditional loan.
Receiving legal funding is commonly referred to as a “lawsuit loan” or “pre-settlement funding” but please note this is not a traditional loan since if you lose your case, you owe us nothing. This type of loan is referred to as a non-recourse loan & is the only type of legal funding Stonewood Funding provides it’s clients.
As mentioned in the disclaimer above, “pre-settlement funding” and “lawsuit loans” are synonymous throughout this website. They both refer to receiving non-recourse legal funding with Stonewood Funding.
Pre-settlement funding is a cash advance given to accident victims while they await their settlement. The cash advance is then paid back from their settlement or court award.
A lawsuit settlement loan will give you the cash you need to live your daily life and pay expenses such as medical bills and property repairs while you are waiting for what you are owed. This will allow you to focus on your recovery and keep fighting until you are offered a fair settlement.
A personal injury claim or any other type of negligence-based claim can take a long time to settle. It is common for victims to accept less than what they deserve because they need the money to pay for the damages that were imposed upon them. This is unjust. Regardless of your financial situation, you deserve a fair settlement, even if it means waiting.
How It Works: Just 3 Easy Steps!
Pre-settlement funding grants you access to a portion of your cash settlement before your case is finalized.

Case Types We Fund
There are many benefits to using a lawsuit loan while you are awaiting a settlement. Some of the biggest benefits are:
Pre-settlement funding is nonrecourse, which means that you will not pay back anything if your case is unsuccessful.
Pre-settlement funding is not a loan, it will not affect your credit, and you will never be indebted to us. We receive payment from your settlement once it is successful. There are no monthly payments. The money is already owed to you, and pre-settlement funding is an advance of that money.
Insurance companies are big money makers, and they will do everything they can to pay out as little as possible. They will look for any way to devalue your claim and exploit any vulnerability. A common tactic is to draw out how long a claim takes to settle in hopes that the plaintiff will become desperate for the money and give up.
But with the lawsuit loan, you will have the money you need to get by, which will give you and your attorney the time and space to fight your case and secure maximum compensation.
If you have to continue to look after your children, or you are worried about where your next meal is going to come from, then, recovery seems impossible. But when you have the money you need, you can focus on your recovery. Mental and physical health go hand-in-hand; when you are less stressed, you will feel the difference.
A lawsuit cash advance can also cover medical expenses and transport to and from appointments. You should never have to delay treatment because you are waiting for the money you are owed. It is important that you can seek the healing you need when you need it.
Money isn’t everything, and nothing can make up for what you have to go through. However, financial difficulty can cause a massive amount of stress. Once the loan enters your bank account, you will have the cash you need to maintain your life in comfort and free from the financial hardship that often plagues victims of personal injury lawsuits.
Rent won’t wait for your settlement. Why should you?
Here are a few things you should know about pre-settlement funding.
You can use your lawsuit funding for any purpose. People most commonly apply for lawsuit cash advances to cover daily living expenses as well as things like mounting medical bills, child care, and property repair. If you have been left unable to work, then this could be especially important.
Most attorneys work on a no-win-no-fee basis, which means that people do not usually require a lawsuit advance to pay for the litigation process. That means that pre-settlement funding helps maintain your quality of life and relieves the financial burden you may be feeling while you await your settlement. Financial assistance usually equates to less stress and better recovery.
While some companies may offer structured settlement payments or monthly payments, these usually carry very high and compounding interest rates. With our model, you will not have a loan hanging over you. You will receive the cash advance when you need it to pay for expenses, and then it will be paid off, and you will have your remaining settlement for yourself.
It is important that injury victims have representation from a quality attorney. Your attorney will guide you through the legal process and maximize the compensation you deserve. We will work alongside your attorney to work out a plan that meets your needs.
We want to make sure you get the best deal. While your attorney may have a pre-settlement funding company they have worked with before, you should check if their standards match up to ours before you make your choice. While it might be convenient for your attorney to work with a company they know, we are confident that we offer the best service and rates around.
Next, you can either give us a call or fill out an online form and apply for a lawsuit loan for free. Our specialists will review your application and speak with your attorney. If your application is accepted, then they will offer you an agreement.
You and your attorney will review the agreement you have been offered. If you are happy with everything, then you will both sign it and send it back to us. Once we have received your signed agreement, we will send the cash to your bank account within 24 hours!
You will not pay us anything unless your claim is successful. If it is, then your payment will be taken from your settlement from your attorney’s account before you receive it.
Why Choose Stonewood Funding as Your Pre-Settlement Funding Company?
Choosing a pre-settlement funding company when you are pending settlement funds is an important financial decision that should be made with due care and consideration. You deserve to be properly compensated for your personal injury case without being taken advantage of by a lawsuit loan company whose one and only goal is to make lots of money.
At the heart of Stonewood Funding is a desire to help people. We care about you and your future. Here are just a few of the reasons to choose us:
Most litigation funding companies will borrow from almost anyone that applies. That is because they can only make money. They expect people to pay back what they borrow regardless of whether they win their case. This can devastate people and put them in incredibly hard financial situations.
At Stonewood Funding, we will assess your case in a free evaluation, and we will only lend to you if we think it is likely you will win your case. If you don’t win your case, then you will not pay us anything back. If you do, you will pay us straight from your actual settlement.
No win, no fee, and no strings attached!
Most settlement funding loans come with very high-interest rates that compound every month. That means that each month, you are charged interest on what you owe rather than what you borrowed. If your case takes a long time to settle, then it can have a HUGE impact on the amount you owe.
Our clients save a lot of money by working with us, sometimes hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars. That means that they secure more of the financial compensation they are owed – which is our goal!
We also have no hidden fees or application fees, so if you don’t win, you really don’t pay anything.
We do not ask for a credit check or employment verification. So long as we have confidence in your case, you will qualify regardless of your financial situation. We are able to offer this because our money comes straight from your settlement. If a settlement funding company asks for a credit check, then they are probably best avoided!
Applying for a lawsuit loan is often a difficult decision, and by the time it is made, you might be desperate for the cash, especially if you are suffering lost wages and trying to maintain a home.
When you apply to us, we will get to work quickly to assess your case. We will work with your attorney to get the information we need fast. Once our underwriters have approved you, the money will arrive in your bank account within 24 hours!

Funding will allow you to focus on your recovery, and it will protect your right to fight for the compensation you deserve.
