What is a Lawsuit Advance?
A lawsuit advance is an advance made to a plaintiff in a lawsuit, which will be paid back when the case is settled. If the amount settled on is less than the amount of the advance, the funder receives a portion of the advance as payment to pay back the advance. In other words, if you don’t win as much in the lawsuit as you received, you are not responsible for paying all of it back. The payments are contingent on the settlement.
