New Brunswick Personal Injury Lawyers discuss New Startup Offers Alternative for Personal Injury Plaintiffs
For many injured people, the single biggest challenge is paying the bills until they get a settlement or a judgment. In fact, legal experts say that many plaintiffs settle for way less than they deserve because they are strapped for cash. Insurance companies, who represent most defendants in personal injury litigation, know this and employ tactics to drag out the legal process. All that may be about to change, thanks to a New York startup company.
Mighty Group, conceived and co-founded by Chief Executive Officer Joshua Schwadron, is on a mission to level the playing field for plaintiffs. Mr. Schwadron’s company, which recently raised more than $5 million in venture capital, is in the business of loaning personal injury victims money until they receive a judgment or settlement. The goal, according to Mr. Schwadron, is to allow injured people the opportunity to be “patient and wait for a fair settlement offer.” In return for the advance, injured parties would agree to pay Mighty Group a small percentage of any financial recovery.
Schwadron notes that his enterprise is not the first company to advance money to personal injury victims. Those companies that do, though, typically purchase a settlement at a discount, and have a fixed percentage for all customers. Mighty Group intends to bring qualified investors together to bid on personal injury claims, so that the beneficiaries of the loans get the advantage of competition.
