Unlike many other lawsuit loan companies, Uplift Legal Funding is on the plaintiff’s side. We understand that having a personal injury is tough. Insurance companies use this so you settle quickly for far less than you deserve. Just like your attorney, Uplift is here to level the playing field between big insurance companies and plaintiffs.
Let’s set the record straight on this one. You technically never pay back lawsuit loans. If you win your case, your attorney pays us the amount we are due from settlement proceeds.
If you lose your case, neither you nor your attorney pays a dime!
Case advances can be expensive, but they do serve to take some risk out of your case by giving you an upfront payment. The interest that your lawyer might pay to any company is based on that risk, and the amount of time it takes for your case to reach a settlement.
Uplift charges ZERO upfront fees for lawsuit loans.
Some companies charge a large upfront funding fee, broker fee, or processing fee and get away with it!
Get informed. You can always ask Uplift or your attorney any questions you might have. Remember that you can always get a better rate by sending us a competitor’s contract.
At Uplift, we focus on helping plaintiffs. Uplift puts all funding terms on the first page of our contract and always include a schedule that shows in dollar terms how much is due at any given date.
We require your attorney to review and sign your funding contract. We are very happy to answer any questions you or your attorney have.
Don’t sign an unclear contract! Learn about your case and the funding industry before you get a loan.
If you lose your case, remember that you are not personally liable to repay a cent. The money is yours to keep.
Uplift offers wire transfers, MoneyGram, Western Union, direct deposit for major banks, and overnight checks.
Electronic options get you same-day funding. The overnight check gets you funds within 24 hours of approval.
We work with you to get the money, and we never charge up-front fees. We do not require you to have a bank account.
Lawsuit loans from Uplift range from $500 – $250,000+. We can advance up to a maximum 20% of the value of your case.
Typically, we counsel clients to think about this question in a different way: “How much cash do I need?.” Lawsuit funding is not cheap. At Uplift, you’ll always get low, simple rates, but we ask that you do your best to limit the amount of funding you get over the course of your case.
Do your best to cut expenses as much as possible and only take what you need – you’ll be glad when you get a larger settlement later.
Uplift is a nationwide provider of pre-settlement and post-settlement funding. There are only a few states that we cannot fund.
For a full list of states we fund, check our states page. If we can’t help you because we can’t fund in your state, we will always try to point you in the right direction to a company that can.
If you’re qualified for funding on your case, Uplift will reach out to your attorney to collect information and determine approval. Approval for legal funding depends on the following factors:
- Liability – who was at fault for the accident? If you were not at fault for the accident or mostly not at fault, this shouldn’t be an issue.
- Damages – what injuries do you have as a result of the accident? If you have clear injuries resulting from your accident, you have clear recoverable damages.
- Insurance coverage – is there a good insurance policy to go after? Most of the time there is. Insurance coverage is usually indicative of the maximum value of your claim.
In short, liability, damages, and insurance coverage are the main aspects pre-settlement funding companies review to determine approval on your claim.
We provide pre-settlement lawsuit loans on nearly all personal injury cases. In short, three aspects qualify you for lawsuit loans:
- You were injured in an accident that was not your fault
- You are above the age of 18
- You have hired an attorney to pursue your claim
To get pre-qualified, apply online or give us a call at (800) 385-3660.
We only ask for your first name, last name, claim type, and state. We will give you a call for a free consultation and get the rest of your case info from your attorney.
We never check your credit or employment history because you are not personally liable to repay lawsuit advances. This makes the process relatively quick compared to traditional loans.
Review for approval is based on the estimated value of your personal injury case, and we can generally offer up to 20% of that value upfront.
