What is pre-settlement funding?

Pre-settlement funding provides cash to the plaintiff in a lawsuit before their case is finally resolved by a court decision or settlement. These funds can also help plaintiffs whose cases have been resolved but have yet to receive payments. The money allows plaintiffs to cover general living expenses, medical bills and other immediate needs while they wait for settlement. Pre-settlement funds are NOT loans. This money is for purchase of part of the recovery in a lawsuit made to qualifying plaintiffs. If the plaintiff loses his or her case, the part of recovery not purchased does not need to be transferred to us.


Types of cases eligible for pre-settlement funding

The most common types of cases for plaintiffs who may be eligible for pre-settlement funds are:

  • Personal Injury
  • Premises Liability
  • Product Liability
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • General Liability
  • Wrongful Death

Read about our process.

Since 2005, Peachtree has delivered pre-settlement funding on more than 19,000 cases. As a top pre-settlement funding company, our fees are very competitive in the industry and our fast turnaround times can provide cash in as little as 24 hours on many cases upon approval.

Step 1: We contact your attorney.

Peachtree is dedicated to delivering quality customer service to the attorneys we work with, and we have received recognition from several legal publications.

Step 2: We review your case.

Again, service is our focus. With an efficient and fast review and underwriting process, we reduce requests for additional information while learning about your unique needs.

Step 3: We send an agreement to your attorney.

Once we’ve reviewed your case and determined which options may be best for you, qualified plaintiffs receive an agreement for you and your attorney to go over.

Step 4: You send us the signed agreement.

Once your attorney receives the agreement from Peachtree, all you need to do is sign the agreement and return it to Peachtree. It’s that simple.

Step 5: We overnight the funds to your attorney’s office.

As soon as we have the signed agreement, Peachtree can usually get you your funds within 24 hours. Some larger cases involve more underwriting and could require up to three days for approval and funding.


Fees

Every individual who seeks pre-settlement funding is unique. The fees depend upon the nature of your case, the amount of funds you are requesting and the amount of time it will take for full resolution. Talk to a Peachtree representative to learn more about the fees that apply to your case and know that there are no hidden fees when you receive pre-settlement funds from Peachtree.


Documentation

In most cases, your attorney will only need to provide three key documents in order to be eligible for pre-settlement funding:

  • A completed application
  • A police report
  • All medical reports (if applicable)

In some, more involved cases we may request more documentation.

When making decisions about who to secure pre-settlement funding from, be sure to ask questions such as:

  • Are there any hidden fees involved?
  • Is the monthly compounding fee competitive with other companies?
  • Does the monthly fee change over the term of the funding?
  • How long have they been involved in pre-settlement funding?
  • Does the company have good third-party ratings?

The settlement process can be difficult to understand and take quite a bit of time to resolve. Pre-settlement funding can provide some much-needed relief. Here are some answers to common questions that arise during the pre-settlement process.

How long does this process take?

Once we receive your completed application, the funding process usually takes between 1 and 3 business days.


Will I need a lawyer?

Yes. You must have an attorney representing your case. Peachtree will work directly with your attorney to ensure that all paperwork is complete and funding is delivered as quickly as possible.


Who will I be working with at Peachtree?

You’ll work with one dedicated representative throughout the entire process. This representative will be familiar with all the ins and outs of your case, and will be available to answer any questions you and your attorney might have.


What documents will I need?

This can vary but for most cases your attorney will need to provide a completed application, a police report and any medical reports if applicable.


What types of cases does Peachtree fund?
  • Personal Injury
  • Premises Liability
  • Product Liability
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents

Are there any additional fees or costs?

No, our fees include a competitive monthly compounding fee on the amount funded which will include a one-time $75 document preparation fee.


Are pre-settlement funds the same as a loan?

No, it is the sale of a portion of the potential proceeds of the lawsuit. Unlike a loan, if the case is unsuccessful, you do not have to pay back the funding you received from Peachtree or incur any fees.


Will my attorney be required to sign any documents?

Yes, the attorney signs the “Acknowledgement by Counsel.” The attorney acknowledges the assignment of a portion of the proceeds and agrees to pay the amount due from the settlement proceeds to Peachtree upon settlement of the case.

FAQs for Attorneys

What documents does Peachtree require from my client’s file?
