Here at Uplift Legal Funding, we are happy to provide Sacramento lawsuit loans to personal injury plaintiffs. Headquartered in Los Angeles County, Uplift funds plaintiffs nationally. Our underwriters are experienced with a number of different locations.

During the fiscal year 2013-2014 alone, Sacramento County saw over 95,000 civil lawsuits filed. While that may not seem like a large number compared to its population of 1.5 million, that means about one out of 15 people filed a lawsuit during that fiscal year. It is more common than you think.
With so many people filing lawsuits, it is right to assume that many are not financially well off. Especially when it comes to personal injury cases, many plaintiffs find themselves out of work due to their injuries. On top of lost wages, a plaintiff’s medical expenses can take a toll as well. The financial burden many plaintiffs face, while unfortunate, happens regularly.

In 2014, it was reported by the California Office of Traffic Safety that 9,747 people died or were injured in an auto accident in Sacramento County. That puts Sacramento County as the sixth worst location for traffic safety statistics when compared to counties of similar size and population.

These statistics help point out that serious car accidents can occur to anyone. No one is immune, which is why it is important to educate yourself on the specific laws and regulations in your county.

Just note that until compensation arrives, the process can be long and expensive. That is where Uplift Legal Funding steps in.
