Fees and expenses are rarely in balance at personal injury firms, which results in significant cash flow challenges. For years, other businesses have managed to balance their cash flow by selling their accounts receivable. Personal injury firms now have the same opportunity with RD Legal Funding’s Fee Acceleration product. Any case with a delay between settling and receiving fees is a candidate for post-settlement funding, including personal injury suits.
