Montana Car Accidents
– A Few Tips That May Help

Jun 01, 2010
If you have been involved in a car accident in Montana, you may have found it necessary to file a lawsuit to get proper compensation for any injuries or damages suffered as a consequence. If that is the case, you are probably concluding that it can be an arduous and lengthy process. Lawsuit Hotline Services, LLC may possibly be able to help with your financial situation while you are waiting for your lawsuit to run its course through the legal system.
Representatives from Lawsuit will conduct an initial interview with you and/or your attorney to gather specific information that pertains to your case. When considering opting for advanced funding, here are a few tips that can help speed up the process.
  • Have a copy of the police report available. If there was no police report, statements from witnesses may suffice.
  • Have copies of your medical records. They will need copies of any medical records that are related to your Montana car accident, such as X-ray copies, MRI reports, and any descriptions of procedures or treatments used to aid you in recovery from the accident.
  • Have the defendant’s information handy. You will also need to provide them with the defendant’s information and insurance carrier, if any. They will not contact the defendant or their insurance carrier, but they do need access to the information to help make as informed a decision as possible as to the possible outcome of your case. 
Once Lawsuit Hotline representatives have all the information they need to make a decision on your case and whether you are eligible to receive lawsuit funding, they will let you and/or your attorney know. If they make you an offer, you can accept an amount less than their offer if you so desire. They will send a contract agreement to your attorney’s office that basically states the terms of the agreement and that you will repay the advance once your case is settled successfully. If they give you an advance and you end up not winning your case, you will not be liable to repay them anything. This type of funding is known as “non-recourse” funding. Rest assured that if they make you an offer, they fully believe in your chances for a successful outcome of your lawsuit.
When the contract agreement has been signed and returned, a check will be sent to you. You may use this money in whatever way you wish, but it is strongly encouraged that you use it for paying bills and/or necessary daily living expenses. When your case concludes successfully, your attorney will then pay the advance back from the settlement amount you won. In the meantime, this financial infusion can help lower your daily stress level from having to come up with enough money to pay your bills and live in a comfortable manner while your lawsuit is ongoing. This advanced funding can make all the difference in the world in your quality of life while you wait for a successful conclusion to your lawsuit.
