The Centers for Disease Control notes that over 150,000 pedestrians received emergency treatment for non-fatal injuries related to car crashes in 2013. An additional 4,735 pedestrians died as a result of auto crashes during the same period. Pedestrian injuries can be devastating, causing life-long medical problems and disabilities. Awaiting a final settlement in a pedestrian accident case can be unsettling, since insurance companies do their best to reduce the amount of any awards due to accident victims. If you are embroiled in a legal waiting game with an insurance company, you may qualify for pedestrian accident lawsuit funding that gives you an advance on your proposed settlement to less financial worries in the meantime.
The recovery period for a pedestrian accident can be years long and involve physical therapy and surgery; some people never recover and are instead left with permanent disabilities. Common injuries involve the lower extremities, spine, pelvis, head, neck, and face, and many are quite complex. Holding down a job while recuperating is usually not an option, especially in the event of a severe accident. During this time period, insurance companies have no interest in settling for less money than they think you'll accept, and some companies offer ridiculously lowball offers in hopes of keeping their costs low. With pedestrian accident lawsuit funding, you can hold off on accepting an offer that doesn't do your injury justice. This funding advance gives you a portion of your proceeds now, so you can play the waiting game with the insurer.
Pedestrian accident funding is available regardless of your credit or employment history, since it is not a loan. The money you receive is advanced to you in anticipation of your future final settlement, so you don't repay anything until you win your case – and you pay nothing if you don't win. You can use the money for expenses you have now, whether that's mortgage payments, rent, utilities, groceries, or any other financial need you have.
