Workers Compensation is designed to supplement your normal income that you are forced to miss due to injuries sustained while performing your job. Unfortunately, these claims normally take quite some time before you are able to receive that money and most people simply cannot wait. A pre-settlement advance or lawsuit loan acts to bridge that gap and provide essential money until you can return to work.

Workers Compensation claims differ somewhat to other personal injury claims in the way they are evaluated. In most cases, once a Workers Comp case is accepted and recognized the next step is to determine the level of impairment or disability. The level of impairment that an injured worker is found to have is a major determining factor in how much they will be compensated. Also, major factors include the age of the worker and their estimated future earnings or loss thereof due to their injury. Typically the first question your attorney will ask you is if you have been fully examined by a trusted medical expert to determine your full scope of injury. Your attorney should not and will not begin to fight for your compensation until the full spectrum of your injury is clearly determined. For some this can be relatively quick, while for others it can take years to complete treatment and return to work, if that is in even an option.
State rules governing Workers Compensation benefits differ from state to state. Accordingly the procedure for receiving compensation varies throughout the country. If you have been injured while on the job, Bridgeway can provide immediate cash assistance in the following states:
