If you have been injured while on the job and are awaiting your Workers Compensation settlement in Missouri, Bridgeway can provide an immediate cash advance today! The process for injured workers to receive their due compensation often takes far longer than anticipated.  Each year an estimated 4.4 million workers are injured or suffer occupational illness while in their workplace. Many of these injured workers will be forced to take significantly less pay then they had been earning while they recover from their injuries and await the settlement of their claim, an advance from Bridgeway can help!

What is a "Lawsuit Loan"?

A Workman’s Compensation settlement advance, or “lawsuit loan” as it is commonly referred, is a non-recourse advance on the expected settlement of your claim. Bridgeway can advance you a portion of your workers comp claim and at the conclusion of your case, your attorney will re-pay the advance. A pre-settlement advance is not actually a loan, because there are no payments, credit check or personal liability to re-pay the advance unless you receive a workers comp settlement.  Workers Compensation funding is provided to workers of Missouri strictly based on the merits of your case.

How the process works:

The application process is quick and easy. Apply today either by submitting an application on your website or by phone call to (800) 531-4066. Once you apply, our underwriters will give you a brief interview on how your accident happened, request the appropriate documents from your attorney’s office and then let your know how much of a case advance we can offer you. In most cases, Bridgeway can provide residents of Missouri with a lawsuit cash advance within 24-48 hours from when you apply.
