Fast Funds is Florida’s Funding Company providing financial assistance for clients since 1998. Our lawsuit cash advance program is the simplest and fairest in the non-recourse funding industry. Fast Funds does not charge compounded or simple interest on the amount advanced, no matter how long it takes for the case to resolve. Structured similar to an attorney’s contingency fee agreement, our profit is based on a small percentage of the anticipated proceeds of recovery, and does not increase due to the amount of time it takes to bring your client’s case to final resolution. Fast Funds has No application fee, No up-front charges, and No closing costs.  Our program is non-recourse, so if your client loses their case, they keep the advance and owe us nothing. Fast Funds promises to never over fund or become the obstacle to settling your client’s case. We offer both lump sum and monthly allowance payments to insure your client is financially stable during the time you’re working on their claim providing the amount of time necessary to maximize their recovery.

At Injury Funds Now (IFN), our mission is to help accident and injury victims who are represented by an attorney get the recovery they truly deserve. When someone is injured due to someone else’s negligence, the victim is entitled to financial compensation for his or her accident-related losses. Insurance companies know this, but they also know that: (i) most people do not realize the full extent of their losses (which can include future medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering); and, (ii) most accident victims need money right away, and cannot wait for a personal injury lawsuit (which could last several years) to run its course.
