Cases We Fund – Jones Act Lawsuit Funding
Traditional workers’ compensation insurance doesn’t cover employees who work on a ship, barge, or oil rig. However, the Jones Act is a federal statute that allows for maritime employees to recover compensation for personal injury damages. Although you can (and should) file a Jones Act claim if you’ve been injured on the job, you’ll have to wait a while to get that compensation into your pocket. Like all lawsuits, a Jones Act claim won’t undergo a swift process.
Hopefully your case will settle out of court, which will keep your case from going to trial. Avoiding a trial will help speed up the completion of your case. But settlement negotiations can take an equally long time to finish. Also, once the negotiations are complete, there’s no guarantee when you’ll get your settlement check. You may even receive multiple checks that are paid out over time.
If you’ve been injured on the job and you’re pursuing a case through the Jones Act, you don’t have to wait until your case settles to get paid. You can apply for pre-settlement funding and obtain a portion of your expected settlement to put in your pocket immediately.
The good news is that you can get paid before the case settles. Capital Now Funding provides funding for a wide range of personal injury lawsuits including Jones Act lawsuits.
If you are pursuing a Jones Act lawsuit and you are in need of financial assistance, a settlement loan, also called pre settlement funding may be what you need. Although it’s called a loan, it’s actually an advance known as non-recourse funding. This type of advance comes with ZERO RISK, because you don’t have to pay it back if you lose your case.
Jones Act Pre Settlement Funding
Do your injuries prevent you from performing your usual job? Are you unable to maintain full-time employment even working in a different industry? If you’re unable to work and your bills are piling up, pre-settlement funding will keep you afloat until your case settles and a check is in hand.
While you’re waiting for your settlement money, you’ll need to have enough cash on hand to be financially self-sufficient without a steady source of income. That’s not acceptable when your savings account is drained, the bills are piling up, and you need money for food, fuel, and lodging.
If you need money now, apply today for settlement funding from Capital Now Funding or call us at 1-855-CAP-FUND right now. With pre-settlement funding, you’ll get money in your pocket quicker than if you have to wait for the arrival of a settlement check.
Why get a settlement loan? Do maritime lawsuits really take that long?
You might be wondering whether getting a lawsuit loan is worth the effort. Your Jones Act case will probably take anywhere between 14 and 16 months to go to trial. That’s obviously a long time. That’s just the amount of time it will take for your case to be heard. You can expect the trial to last several months, and then, assuming you’re awarded compensation, you won’t be walking out of the courtroom with a check in your hand. You’ll have to wait even longer to get that money. By the time your case is completed and the judge orders the defendant to pay damages, you may not see any money for several more months. This means it could be two years or more before you see a dime of compensation.
Unless you’re wealthy enough to live off savings until you receive full compensation, a lawsuit loan is the only risk-free way to secure some ready cash.
