NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today an immediate new focus and efficiency on cases involving "victims" of:  wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment/assault, wrongful imprisonment, police brutality and all other victim related cases.  Typically these types of cases are more complex in nature and liability is more difficult to prove, which makes approving these cases for pre-settlement funding tougher industry wide.  However, Legal-Bay has always been a leader in these cases and will increase their commitment to assisting victims with lawsuit cash advances within 24 hours of receiving case documents.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations at Legal-Bay commented, "We are seeing an increase of sexual abuse cases nationwide and wrongful termination cases.  Unfortunately for the victims, these cases drag out due to the defendant denying their actions for as long as possible.  However, we remain committed to helping the victims get financially back on their feet right now, until their cases receive the full value they deserve."  

Legal-Bay has been following several high profile sexual abuse cases such as the Penn St. sexual abuse scandal where the University recently settled 26 claims for $60MM, an average settlement amount of over $2MM per case.  This is also typical of other sexual harassment cases such as the Boys Scouts of America, Catholic Church Clergy, and Citadel University recent settlements.  Legal-Bay says the cases are now, sadly, becoming all too familiar in nature; and that Legal-Bay's underwriters have been able to quickly evaluate some of these cases and approve them faster than any other company in the legal funding industry.  To learn more about Legal-Bay's sexual harassment funding, you can log on to:

Legal-Bay has also monitored the Merrill Lynch Black Broker Discrimination (wrongful termination) Settlement, which was a record discrimination settlement of $160MM.  The company stands ready to assist victims in that case once the damages are made clear in each individual case.  Legal-Bay encourages Merrill Lynch plaintiffs that need a settlement funding, not to be considered a lawsuit loan or settlement loan by its funding partners, to contact Legal-Bay directly to begin the process on or about Dec. 5, 2013.  Actual settlement funds are not expected to be distributed until mid-2014, if the Judge approves the landmark settlement.  To learn more about Legal-Bay's wrongful termination or discrimination funding program, you may log onto:
