About 4,500 players are involved in the concussion settlement suits with an uncapped amount of $765 million put forth by Judge Brody. Judge Brody helped NFL players by uncapping the settlement amount early this month, while also helping NFL executives, by allowing them to challenge any claimant on their case from retired players. Guidelines include the NFL must inform it's 20,000 retired players of the settlement terms by September 15th, while November 19th is the final date Brody will oversee opposing viewpoints during a fairness hearing.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations, commented on the direction of the NFL settlement, "It is widely expected that the November hearing will end with an approval of the settlement from Judge Brody. However, the process of determining claims will be difficult for players who will need to see an independent NFL doctor. The timing of getting the proper diagnosis and receiving just compensation is expected to last well into 2015. Our company and investors are committed to helping NFL's retired stars with getting a lawsuit cash advance now to pay their bills until they get their ultimate settlement check."
