If you need emergency money after an accident, Bridgeway Legal Funding can help!


If you or someone you know has ever gotten into a car accident in Arizona, you know how inconvenient it can be. You have to file a claim and deal with your car insurance company. You probably will have to take your vehicle to a shop for repairs. If so, you will have to figure out how to get around while you wait for your car to be fixed.

Those are just car accident-related time inconveniences. If you were to get injured in a car accident in Arizona, you have a new set of problems. There’s not only potential physical pain to deal with, but your financial situation could suffer as well. You may have to pay for medical expenses such as doctor visits and if you’re paid hourly, you could lose income if you’re too injured to work.

The good news is a financial settlement could help cover these expenses if you’re ever injured in a car accident in Arizona. The bad news is there’s no guarantee that you will receive that settlement immediately—which is when you probably need it the most.

A pre-settlement advance could solve your money issues much faster. This type of funding, which is also sometimes called a “lawsuit loan”, can help pay for car accident-related expenses such as medical bills, car repairs and lost income if you can’t work.

If you were injured in a car accident in Arizona and need money right away, consider getting a pre-settlement advance. It can help keep you financially afloat while you wait for your full settlement.

What is a pre-settlement advance?

Pre-settlement funding is a cash advance against your pending car accident claim or lawsuit. It’s often called a “lawsuit loan” too, but that term is incorrect because pre-settlement funding is a non-recourse advance, not a loan. In other words, you don’t have to pay the money back if you don’t win your case.

As an Arizona driver, it’s beneficial to know what financial options you have after an accident—especially if you have suffered an injury. While you may believe you’re a careful driver, how others operate their vehicle is out of your control — car accidents do happen.

For example, there were almost 120,000 car accidents in Arizona in 2022 and almost 35,000 of those crashes resulted in an injury. 

Based on Arizona Department of Transportation data, that means almost 30% of car accidents in Arizona had at least one injured party. Meanwhile, the number of registered vehicles in Arizona has gone up every year since 2010, increasing the odds of a collision.

Approximately 144 people were injured in a car accident in Arizona a day in 2022. Hopefully you’re never part of that count, but in the event that you are, it’s good to know about all of the financial options that are available to you. Bridge Legal Funding can help.

The funding process is quick and easy, contact us today and you could receive money within 24 hours.

If you win a settlement after being in a car accident in Arizona, it could be one to three years, yes, years, before you see any money.

Bridgeway Legal Funding can help you get your money in a matter of days, however. Not only can you get your money faster, but you can receive what your case is truly worth. A pre-settlement advance can protect you from accepting an offer that’s much less than your case’s value. These advances can also help even the playing field against large car insurance companies that have virtually unlimited resources.

How much can I borrow with a pre-settlement advance?

We typically will advance our clients up 10 to 20% of their case’s value. We base the case’s value on three key factors:

Liability—Whose fault was the accident? If another driver rear ended your vehicle for example, they would be considered liable for any damages.

Damages—How much money will be awarded following the accident based on injuries and lost wages? Some of the factors calculated to determine total damages include:       

         • Medical expenses and treatments (current and future)

         • Lost wages (determined by how much work you missed times your current wage)

         • Future work status (can you still work at all and/or preform your pre-accident duties)

Insurance—You can typically use the amount of insurance coverage available at the time of the accident. Drivers are required to carry at least the following amount of car insurance in Arizona: 

         Bodily injury liability: $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident

• Property damage liability: $15,000 per accident

• Uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage: $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident

• Underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage: $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident

Remember, these are minimum car insurance requirements for Arizona drivers. Chances are the person you get into an accident with has additional coverage.
