Lawsuit Loan- a lawsuit is a case brought by one party against another in a court of law. A loan is a sum, which is borrowed and a expected to be paid back with interest. A lawsuit loan is not really the proper term for borrowing against your lawsuit. The proper terms are pre-settlement advance, post-settlement advance, legal funding and others. The amount funded is not backed by any promise to pay other than if the lawsuit is successful. If you googled lawsuit loan you've come to the right place, but what you are really in search of is a cash advance.
