Applying and The Approval Process
The process for applying for an advance is very simple. Contact Bridgeway by phone, e-mail or website application submission. After a brief conversation, we will reach out to your law firm to gather some documents and review your case. Assuming you are approved, we will prepare a contract for signature. Once we receive your contract back, via fax or email, we can either overnight you a check or wire the funds directly into your account.
For any questions you have on a cash advance on your lawsuit, visit our Guide to Pre-Settlement Funding page.

- Motor Vehicle cases
- Construction Accidents

How much of a cash advance can I receive?
Bridgeway does its best to determine the value of a case by reviewing the liability, damages and insurance limits that are available. Based on our valuation of your case, Bridgeway advance you up to 10-20% of the estimated value of your case. More simply, if we estimate your case to be worth $50,000 we could generally advance up to $5,000-$10,000.
Locations We Can Fund
The location that your accident takes place is a very important factor in consideration for a pre-settlement advance. The state in which your accident occurs will be the venue for your lawsuit no matter where you may be living or a resident of. For example, a New York resident who happens to have a car accident while on vacation in California will have their case negotiated and/or litigated in California and in line with California Law.
We can advance clients with Motor Vehicle accidents, Slip & Falls, Construction, etc. in all states with the exception of:
- North Carolina
- West Virginia
For Workers’ Compensation cases, we can fund in the following.
