Plaintiff had suffered a serious injury in an automobile accident in northern Indiana. There was an offer to settle the case of $250,000 and the attorney thought the case was worth $1 million. The problem was that because of the accident, the plaintiff was behind on her mortgage, losing her house, and wanted to settle the case for the $250,000. The attorney called Mark Bello and Lawsuit Financial. We provided funding in three stages, saved the client's house, took away the financial pressure to settle the case early and cheap, and, almost one year later, the case settled for $950,000. This was a $700,000 increase from the offer that client would have taken without our involvement in the case.

$1.4 Million Settlement
Lawsuit Financial provided funding in a case where the client has hydroplaned on a wet road and crossed the center line, striking an on-coming vehicle. Occupants of the vehicle client struck were suing him and he was uninsured. Funding was provided to settle the case with the on coming vehicle so that client could pusue and resolve the case against the road commission for the road hydorplaning tendencies. As a result of funding, the client realized a $1.4 million settlement that was no longer in reach of the occupants of the other vehicle. Since most of the settlement dollars would have gone to the occupants of the other vehicle had funding not been available to plaintff to settle with them, we like to think that we made a $1 Million + difference in the plaintiff's outcome in the case.
