What Is a Lawsuit Loan (Lawsuit Cash Advance) And How Is It Repaid?

A lawsuit cash advance is most often referred to as a lawsuit loan* in the litigation funding industry.  However, a lawsuit loan is technically not a loan. It is treated as an investment in the potential settlement proceeds of your case. Since Salvo Park is the investor, we assume the risk of loss.

When we provide you with a lawsuit loan, we file a lien on the proceeds of your case.  It is nonrecourse to you.  This means you owe us nothing unless you settle or win your case.  If your case is successful, we are entitled to be repaid only out of your settlement proceeds.

If you lose your case you owe us nothing and you keep the cash we transferred.

*A lawsuit loan is referred to in a number of ways, including: lawsuit cash advance; pre settlement funding; legal funding; lawsuit funding; litigation funding; lawsuit settlement loan; personal injury lawsuit loan; personal injury loan; pre settlement loan, lawsuit advance; and, lawsuit financing.
