What Are Pedestrian Accident Loans in California

If you’ve been injured as a pedestrian in California, you may have heard of “pedestrian accident loans”. But what are they, and how do they work?

A pedestrian accident loan is not actually a loan. Instead, it’s a form of pre-settlement funding. It’s an advance on money you might receive through a future car accident settlement.

This money can be used to cover immediate costs after your accident. These could be medical bills, loss of income, living expenses, or anything else you need.

The key feature of a pedestrian accident loan is that it is non-recourse. This means if you don’t win your case, you don’t need to pay back the advance.

So, if you’re facing financial stress while waiting for your legal case to resolve, a pedestrian accident loan might be an option to consider.

Types of Pedestrian Accident Claims in California

In California, pedestrian accident claims often involve a range of unfortunate incidents. They can include incidents involving pedestrians hit by cars, bicyclists, or even individuals on electric scooters. Regardless of the vehicle involved, these accidents are usually severe, resulting in significant injuries and even fatalities.

A common pedestrian accident scenario is an individual being struck by a car when crossing the street. This instance may occur when drivers fail to yield right-of-way to the pedestrian at crosswalks, or when drivers are not paying attention due to factors like distracted driving, intoxication, or simple negligence.

Accidents involving bicycles and electric scooters are also increasingly common. This is due to the growing use of alternative transportation methods in urban areas. In such cases, a pedestrian can be injured when a cyclist or scooter rider fails to follow traffic laws or loses control of their vehicle.

California uses a “pure comparative negligence” law, meaning that the fault for an accident can be shared. This means that even if a pedestrian is partially at fault for the accident, they may still be able to recover damages. However, their compensation will be reduced by their percentage of fault. For instance, if a pedestrian is found to be 20% at fault, their monetary recovery would be reduced by 20%.

The circumstances of each accident greatly impact the potential outcome of a lawsuit. If an accident occurs because of clear fault on part of another individual (like a speeding driver), a pedestrian is likely to have a higher chance of success in their lawsuit. Therefore, knowing how fault laws apply can be crucial to understand your potential for legal recovery.

How Much Money Can I Get From my Pedestrian Accident Pre-settlement Loan?

Lawsuit loans from can range from $500 – $1,000,000+. We can provide funds up to a maximum of 25% of your expected share of the settlement if your case is still unresolved. For settled cases, we can advance 50% of your expected share of the final settlement.

Let’s explore an example. Suppose a plaintiff in California is involved in a pedestrian accident case estimated to be worth $300,000. The case is still ongoing and won’t be settled for some time. Generally speaking, medical providers receive around 1/3 of the settlement, the attorney gets another 1/3 of the settlement. This leaves the plaintiff with an expected share of approximately $100,000. In such a case, we can advance about 25% of that amount, or $25,000, to the plaintiff.

California Pedestrian Accident Funding FAQs

This section addresses frequently asked questions (FAQs) specifically for California residents related to pedestrian accident lawsuit funding. If you’re a victim of a pedestrian accident and suing, these answers may be useful to you.

How much does it cost to get a pedestrian accident lawsuit loan?

Lawsuit funding is not like typical loans as there are no upfront costs or regular payments. You only pay back the amount if—and when—you win your case. The cost varies depending on the details of your case and the risk involved.

Do I qualify for a lawsuit loan on my pedestrian accident case?

To qualify for a pedestrian accident lawsuit loan, you must have a valid claim against another party, an attorney representing you, and sustained injuries requiring medical treatment. However, every situation is unique, and we evaluate cases individually.

Can you get a loan on a pedestrian accident settlement?

Yes, you can. After reaching a settlement agreement, but before actually receiving the funds, many plaintiffs take out a post-settlement loan. During this period, it could take months or even years before you receive your money. A post-settlement loan helps cover living expenses or medical bills until then.
