FAQ

Q: How does legal funding work?

Legal funding or legal cash advance is a way for you to pay for medical bills, living expenses and emergencies while you wait for your lawsuit to settle.

Many personal injury cases can take months to settle, which can leave you in a difficult financial situation.

With legal funding, a portion of your estimated lawsuit settlement is advanced to you, by Alliance Claim Funding before your case is settled. When your case settles, the cash advance plus fees is paid back to Alliance Claim Funding.

Q: Is this a loan?

Even though many people refer to this process as a lawsuit loan – it is not a loan – it is a cash advance.

Unlike a loan, should you lose your case, you owe us nothing. The entire cash advance, including all the fees, is entirely forgiven. Plus, there is no application fee to set up the cash advance, and there are no monthly payments while you wait for your case to settle.

This is strictly a cash advance on the future value of your lawsuit settlement.

 Q: What happens if I lose my lawsuit?

If you lose your case, you owe us nothing. There is no risk to you – if your case loses the cash advance is forgiven.

No. There are no monthly payments while you wait for your settlement Plus, if you lose your lawsuit, you owe us nothing. We get paid only if you get paid.
