Capital One Litigation Loans
Class Action Lawsuits is perhaps the most common type of Lawsuit. Class Action generally means that more than one person brought suit together, who all agree on the same facts and legal positions. The plaintiff is generally a third party who brings the suit in an effort to obtain compensation for injuries, suffering or other issues. Class actions have been very useful in the past and in the present, especially with tort law. They are not as widely used as they once were, perhaps because of recent court rulings, but they are still quite effective and popular amongst plaintiffs and their attorneys alike.
Class Action Lawsuit Capital One
Capital One is a Lawsuit funding company that specializes in Class Action lawsuit capital funding. Capital One will typically finance the entirety of a class action lawsuit, with one payment instead of numerous payments throughout the lawsuit. When a lawsuit has been resolved, whether through judgment or settlement, there is usually a set amount of money that can be retained by the winning party. This money, known as the ‘settlement cash’ in legal jargon, is given to the plaintiff or his or her attorneys, either for an upfront lump sum or monthly payments. The use of settlement cash is a common strategy used in Class Action Litigation, and Capital One’s lawsuit capital financing programs help litigants in need of money to obtain the settlement cash they need, regardless of whether they have sued or not.
In recent years, Capital One has emerged as a preferred funding source for many Class Action Lawsuit plaintiffs.
In many cases, Capital One’s lending practices have enabled clients to receive the settlement they deserve, in amounts they can afford. Capital One’s lending policies also allow clients to pay their suit out over time, rather than waiting for the entire settlement to be achieved. This gives plaintiffs the option of building a case for financial gain or focusing on sustaining their health or other life circumstances.
Capital One’s lawsuit funding business is operated by an experienced litigation funding attorney.
The company’s senior banking authority is responsible for overseeing the handling and processing of all deposits for all plaintiffs. When a lawsuit involves multiple plaintiffs who are financially intertwined, it becomes necessary for the company to have a process in place for evaluating each case. This evaluation process involves evaluating the individual case and assigning a suitable settlement funding level to each case. Once the appropriate settlement funding level has been determined for a particular case, the case is closed, and the funds are released to the plaintiffs.
As described above, Capital One allows attorneys to obtain funds on a case-by-case basis when it is not financially feasible for a client to provide all of the funds requested by the client. For example, if the client is unable to meet all of the requested funds, Capital One will review the case, and if it is unable to further settle the case, then the case is continued to another funding company. On a related note, if the attorney decides that another case is better suited for funding, Capital One will continue to work with that attorney to determine an appropriate solution. Once a case has concluded, Capital One will distribute the funds to the attorneys and plaintiffs that had their case resolved. If the case was still ongoing at the time that the lawsuit was settled, Capital One would distribute the funds to the remaining attorneys and plaintiffs on the litigation and settlement teams.
As a result of this unique ability to fund on a case-by-case basis, Capital One is very different from other litigation funding companies.
In fact, there are virtually no instances where you will find a funding company that will advance funds on a case-by-case basis. Typically, companies that provide this type of financing service are very aggressive and have little interest in providing funding to plaintiffs with a weak case or to litigants with a long trial schedule. (In addition, Capital One’s risk and investment profiles are extremely strong and most importantly, the cost of these cash advances are only a fraction of what it would cost for a case to go to trial.)
Another benefit to Capital One is that they provide support right after a successful lawsuit is resolved.
Thereafter, the company may either refer the class action lawsuit to an outside entity for additional litigation support or retain the case for further litigation. At the same time, Capital One does not commit to ongoing litigation unless requested to do so by the class action plaintiffs. This gives plaintiffs the ability to choose between pursuing further litigation or resting their case until a more convenient time.
Capital One also has experience with complex litigation such as securities class actions, collective sue loans, and commercial vehicle case resolutions. It is important to note, however, that Capital One should not be used to represent any individual plaintiff, nor should it be used by anyone who hasn’t had success in their own lawsuits or wants to pursue a case that is beyond their experience. For example, in a securities class action lawsuit, it would be ill-advised to use Capital One to mediate the dispute between competing broker-dealers. In the same vein, Capital One cannot be used by an attorney to pursue a personal injury case or a claim against a non-profit corporation. For these reasons, it is always wise to seek the representation of a trained attorney who specializes in the type of case you’re interested in.
