Injuries from a car accident can be devastating physically, emotionally, and financially. Each car accident has a different financial burden that depends on the amount of damage and injuries. Across the country, car accidents rack up an estimated $44 billion in medical and work loss costs each year.

The average claim for bodily injury, as reported by Verisk Analytics, is over $15,000. That might sound like a lot of money, but when it comes to medical bills, that’s relatively low. And since the costs of medical services tend to rise over time, those costs will only get larger.

No matter how low the bill may be, that doesn’t make it easier to come up with thousands of dollars for medical bills from an injury that wasn’t your fault. At Preferred Capital Funding, we can provide you with pre-settlement funding for those costs to help you stay afloat before your case settles.
