Uplift Legal Funding is happy to provide Fresno lawsuit loans to personal injury plaintiffs. Headquartered in Los Angeles County, most of the cases Uplift reviews come from California. However, we fund cases nationally and our experienced underwriters are familiar with major counties nationwide.
Local personal injury dynamics play a large role in expected settlement value. The more familiar a pre-settlement funding company is with your state and county, the more likely it is you will get a low rate.
According to the Judicial Council of California, Fresno County saw over 20,000 civil lawsuits filed during the fiscal year 2013-2014. When compared to Fresno County’s population of over 950,000, about one in 45 people filed a lawsuit during that fiscal year. Personal injury lawsuits are more common than you might think.
Given that many injured plaintiffs are out of work, legal funding can help cover expenses while waiting for settlement. On top of lost wages, medical expenses can add to the stress of an injury lawsuit.
Fresno Car Accidents

Anyone can be the victim, which is why it is important to engage in safe driving practices. If you are in an accident at the fault of the other driver, file a claim. Educate yourself on the specific negligence laws and regulations of your location. The settlement you may win from your lawsuit will help cover any damages. Just be aware that the legal process for personal injury cases can be long and costly. Uplift Legal Funding’s car accident loans can help bridge the gap between injury and settlement.
