Due to the increasing number of vehicle accidents and related lawsuits, High Rise Legal Funding announced they are focusing on car accident pre-settlement funding in 2022.
More than a year-and-a-half ago, roadways emptied as the pandemic closed the country and people stayed home. However, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Traffic Safety Facts, those who drove their vehicles engaged in more dangerous behavior.
Law enforcement and traffic safety experts reported a high number of motorists driving too fast, under the influence of drugs and alcohol, or failing to buckle up. As a result, NHTSA estimates reveal 38,680 people were killed in 2020 vehicle crashes: a fatality rate not seen since 2007.
Additionally, approximately 20,160 people died in motor vehicle crashes during the first half of 2021. The NHTSA reported that this is the most significant six-month increase recorded and the largest estimated number of fatalities during that period since 2006.
Those numbers are only projected to get worse as the pandemic lockdown tapers off and more people feel safer in their cars than taking public transportation. In addition, legal experts attribute many car-related injuries to negligent drivers, increasing personal injury lawsuits claims.
About Pre-Settlement Legal Funding
High Rise Legal Funding is aware that those struggling with COVID-related work issues will find it even more challenging to pay their bills as they pursue a car-accident-related personal injury claim. A successful lawsuit settlement is intended to help victims recover from financial and emotional damages; however, a resolution on their claim could take months or years.
The financial pressures victims face can affect their ability to receive fair compensation from the at-fault party. Therefore, High Rise Legal Funding is proud to provide pre-settlement financing to help plaintiffs when they need it the most.
Litigation financing gives car accident injury victims the funds to replace lost wages and cover mortgage, rent, medical bills, childcare, and vehicle repair bills while waiting for a case resolution in 2022.
Unlike a regular bank loan, car accident legal funding includes a fast, simple approval process with no interest. And because the IRS classifies legal financing as nonrecourse, it does not have to be repaid, even if they lose their lawsuit and fail to win compensation.
