We have listed some of our most frequently funded cases below, however, if you do not see your specific situation contact us directly to review the details of your case. Some of our most frequently funded cases include:

While auto accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, in some cases the consequences can be felt years down the line. Whether you’re driving the car, a passenger in the vehicle or you were hit, auto accident injuries can be extremely debilitating and expensive—especially when they are not covered by insurance or insurance will not cover everything. Your recovery could be greatly impacted by the inability to get the medical or surgical care you require immediately.

Wilshire Funding is dedicated to assisting the victims of auto accidents by providing necessary funds and Concierge Services, which can assist victims with:
• Arranging medical and surgical treatments
• Coordinating transportation to/from treatments and court dates
• Delivering your advance if you are unable to physically get to our office

Wilshire Funding understands how complex, time consuming and financially stressful auto accident cases can be, which is why we work hard to alleviate you of some of the anxiety of waiting for your settlement.

Railroad employees hurt while on the job are typically covered by the Federal Employers’ Liability Act or FELA, under which railway companies are responsible for providing railroad employees with safe work environments. Should an employer fail to put into effect or enforce necessary safety measures, the railroad may be found liable for deaths or injuries that result. Some of the most common railroad injury causes include:
• Derailments
• Collisions with other trains
• Collisions with vehicles
• Exposure to toxic chemicals
• Mechanical failure

FELA was enacted to make sure that railroad workers that are injured on the job are able to receive appropriate compensation for their injuries. However, many employers and railroad companies are equipped with powerful legal counsel that may attempt to remove the burden of responsibility from their clients. As a result, it may take substantial amounts of time to reach reasonable settlements on FELA liability cases. This is often difficult for the victims while they wait.

If you are currently waiting on a pending FELA case and you require funds quickly, contact Wilshire Funding to discuss how we can assist you.

Accidents of a slip and fall or trip and fall nature occur every day. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall or trip and fall accidents are:

• Plumbing issues
• Weather conditions
• Inadequate lighting
• Uneven floors or steps
• Unnecessary clutter

No matter what the cause, accidents of this nature can result in serious injuries. Whether a victim has suffered a broken back, head injury or other type of injury, a slip and fall or trip and fall accident can have a major impact on every aspect of a victim’s life for an extended period of time. While victims of these types of injuries are often compensated, it can take some time to reach desirable settlements.

If you have personally suffered due to a slip and fall or trip and fall injury and are in need of funds immediately while your case is being settled, contact Wilshire Funding for a free case evaluation today.

The governing branch of international law that deals with personal injury cases associated with navigation at sea is referred to as Maritime Law. Some of the most common causes of accidents experienced at sea are:
• Unsafe work conditions
• Lack of appropriate equipment
• Inability to provide medical treatment after accident
• Ignored safety standards and statutes
• Inadequate training and/or safety measures

While Maritime Law encompasses a number of legislations, we would like to highlight the Jones Act, which is a federal law that was specifically passed to provide protection to seamen. A seaman is able to recover funds if he/she was injured as a direct result of his/her employer failing to provide a safe work place—under the Jones Act. This act provides some of the most comprehensive protection and can be used by seamen to hold their employers liable for any and all negligence. Injury to a seaman protected by this law does not necessarily have to occur on a vessel. While the Jones Act is certainly beneficial to those it protects, it can still take personal injury victims substantial time to reach their desired settlements.

If you have a personal injury case due to a maritime injury and need funds immediately, contact Wilshire Funding. Our comprehensive funding services provide non-recourse cash advances to plaintiffs currently waiting for settlements associated with Maritime Law.

Need a quick cash advance on your construction site accident lawsuit? Construction workers are frequently injured in construction accidents due to the often dangerous, life threatening, conditions of their worksite. These accidents can often be devastating and may result in short or long-term disability, permanent work loss, and even death. Employees involved in construction accidents can obtain workers compensation against their employer, but there may be third party liability against other responsible parties involved in the construction process. Bystanders may also be injured on construction sites and may be entitled to file a lawsuit against those responsible for their injuries. Construction accidents not only cause serious injury but may also be detrimental to your family's financial well being. That’s where Wilshire Funding can help.

One of the most common causes of personal injuries, motor vehicle accidents can vary greatly in severity and type. Some of the most common types of motor vehicle accidents include:
• Side-impact collisions
• Rear-end collisions
• Sideswipe collisions
• Flipped vehicles
• Single vehicle accidents
• Head-on collisions
• Multi-vehicle pile-ups

While you may assume it’s easy to determine fault in a motor vehicle accident, the case is quite the opposite. It can be very hard to reach a settlement in a motor vehicle accident as a result of complicated factors such as traffic infractions and the presence of multiple vehicles. Additionally, some motor vehicle accident claims may include the involvement of motor vehicle or motor vehicle part manufacturers. Even the simplest of motor vehicle accident claims can take months or years to reach resolution.

If you have been the victim of a motor vehicle accident and require funds while waiting for your personal injury settlement, contact Wilshire Funding today.
