Pre-Settlement Advance For Medical Bills and Rent Allows Bereft Mother to Wait For A Fair Settlement
A Brooklyn, New York mother of four was seriously injured in a car accident when a speeding off-duty ambulance driver slammed into her car. Three of her four children were killed in the accident. Our client and her surviving child suffered major injuries. As a result of the accident, our client was unable to work. Bills began to accumulate.
Our client was about to be evicted from her apartment when the defendant’s insurance company offered her a settlement of $1 million. Her attorney advised her not to accept the settlement offer, even though she needed immediate financial assistance. The attorney recommended that our client apply for funding through LawCash so she could afford to wait for a fair settlement offer, or take her case to a jury. After the underwriting team at LawCash reviewed the lawsuit, we advanced $100,000.
The lawsuit advance allowed our client to keep her apartment, pay her bills, care for her remaining child, and receive critical medical attention. A few months later, she accepted a $3.9 million settlement offer and repaid LawCash $116,000. We helped level the playing field so that our client did not have to accept a low settlement offer.
Pre-Settlement Advance To Keep Lights On and Prevent Mortgage Foreclosure
Jerome Brown, a St. Petersburg, Florida auto mechanic and carpenter, hurt his back in a car accident. He was unable to work as a result of his injuries. Although Mr. Brown filed a lawsuit shortly after the accident, the legal process progressed slowly. He began to have difficulty paying bills.
Mr. Brown remembers, “We were running such a bad streak of luck. We were running behind in the mortgage, the car payments, the lights, the water, the phone. A couple of times our lights were out. They were literally going to take the house.”
Mr. Brown turned to LawCash. We advanced him $15,000. The advance meant that he did not have to choose between accepting a low settlement and paying his bills. The LawCash advance allowed Mr. Brown to prevent foreclosure on his mortgage and gave him the time he needed to get the settlement he deserved.
Daily Living Expenses While Waiting for Payment of Settlement
Abner Louima intervened in a fight between two women, trying to break them apart. When the police arrived on the scene, the police decided Mr. Louima was the perpetrator. Through his lawyer, Sanford Rubenstein, he negotiated a large settlement with the New York Police Department. The case became notorious, one of the first to give the public a view of police brutality of an innocent and well-meaning African American man. Mr. Louima’s lawsuit involved, among other horrific offenses, sodomy with a broomstick. Still, despite having reached settlement, Mr. Louima needed money for living expenses while he waited for the NYPD to pay the settlement. The lawsuit dragged on for three years, with no end in sight when he applied for LawCash settled case funding. We advanced $20,000 to help with daily living expenses.
About nine months after the LawCash advance, the NYPD finally paid him the $8.75 million settlement. Mr. Louima repaid the advance. LawCash provided the money he needed while waiting for settlement for heinous wrongs perpetrated against him. Since then, Mr. Louima has demonstrated against police brutality, has marched with Al Sharpton against later instances of police brutality, and dedicated his efforts to protecting the rights of those victimized by the police.
