Are you waiting on a pending personal injury lawsuit, living in the state of West Virginia?
There are few things that can be as difficult and draining as a long, drawn out legal battle. When it’s not moving quickly, it can be a huge, substantial drain on your finances. With legal fees going out in addition to your regular monthly expenses, the burden can become truly cumbersome. We absolutely understand this and we don’t want you to give up on your settlement! Our team of experts is waiting to hear from you so that we can get you started immediately on qualifying for the financial support you need to get you through the process of settling your lawsuit.
Insurance companies know that you don’t have the legal resources that they have and when it comes to dragging thing out in court for as long as possible, they know that this is what they need to do. If they drag things out long enough, they know that you’re likely to either settle for a much smaller amount than what you’re entitled to, or that you may very well give up on your settlement altogether. We don’t want you to do that. We understand how this process works, and that you’re simply struggling in the meantime while you’re waiting for the money that you’re entitled to. Sometimes we all need that little bit of a bridge to get us to the next step that will give us a chance to make ends meet for just a little bit longer. We absolutely understand this, and we’re here to provide you with the assistance that you need.
Rapid Lawsuit Funding can get you started right away. With a simple and quick application, most of which takes place between us and your attorney, you can receive the funding you need to make ends meet while your attorney negotiates you the best settlement possible, within just 24 hours! This may sound too good to be true, but we’re not a traditional lender. We know that these are special circumstances and that you need help now. We want to help you get the time you need to let your lawyer work out a great settlement for you. In the meantime, you can breathe easy knowing that you’ve got the financial means to sustain yourself while negotiations are taking place. No more being taken advantage of by the insurance company!

Applying for pre-settlement funding poses no ethical issues in West Virginia, however your attorney must be in good standing with regards to your litigation (proof must be provided), and there is to be no conflict of interest between the plaintiff and third-party funding. The contract must be legal and the plaintiff’s attorney must be able to provide the necessary guidance to their clients.
It must be noted that cash advance amounts are to be clearly outlined. An itemization of one-time fees, total amount to be repaid in 6 month intervals that are carried forward to 36 months is also to be noted by the third party funders. Also clearly stated, is the plaintiff’s ability to cancel their arrangement within five business days of receiving their funding with no penalty and no further obligation to the third party funder. This is to be clearly stated in the contract. It is the responsibility of the plaintiff’s attorney to confirm that they have thoroughly reviewed the terms and explained them to their client. This must all be in the contract, also.

This Is What Our Clients Say
It’s really hard to figure out how to make it by when you’ve got so many financial obligations that you need to take care of, and you’re paying so much in legal fees to get your case settled. This was my biggest challenge and I was really ready to give in and take a settlement that would just cover my legal fees – if that. Then I found Rapid Lawsuit Funding, and I started the application process. I’m SO glad I did. It changed the entire course of my journey, and I was able to hold out until I got the settlement I deserved! -Reggie
My husband and I were so frustrated. With kids in school and us waiting on our auto collision settlement – which was totally not our fault – we were at our wits end. We were worried that if we went forward, with the lawsuit, that we wouldn’t be able to keep our kids in school after this semester. It was a lot to think about! Once we found Rapid Lawsuit Funding though, we didn’t have to worry anymore. We were able to stay afloat and then some until our settlement came through. – Jean & Harvey
It’s a lot easier to make sure that you get the coverage you need to get by until your settlement comes through than you think. I wasn’t sure at all for a while, and I almost gave up altogether. Even though I knew I was entitled to a really large settlement, I was too close to going under in the meantime. I had exhausted my credit cards and credit line, and I had nothing else to draw from. When I found Rapid Lawsuit Funding, Everything Changed. I am so grateful! – Erica
