Thank you for your interest in our e-book, "4 Reasons to Consider a Structured Settlement." We understand that people rarely have a casual need to research a structured settlement, so it is our goal to explain the benefits structured settlements can provide to individuals who have suffered from a personal, physical injury. The e-book will help you weigh the pros and cons to make an informed decision by sharing four reasons you should consider a structured settlement as well as one good reason not to.
Let's assume you or one of your family members has suffered a personal, physical injury and, with the help of an attorney, you have filed a lawsuit seeking damages against the responsible party. After months of discovery and negotiations, the defendant wants to settle your case instead of proceeding to trial and your attorney has recommended that you consider their offer.
Prior to the negotiation, (we hope) your attorney recommended and introduced you to a structured settlement consultant who explained the differences between a lump sum settlement and a structured settlement and explained the advantages and disadvantages of each.
If you have not yet spoken to a structured settlement consultant, click here to learn about the value a structured settlement consultant can bring to the negotiation process.
As you and your advisers consider whether to settle the case, continue to negotiate, or proceed to trial, you must now also consider if a structured settlement will be the right form of settlement for you.
You only have one chance to settle your personal injury case.
Before making that life-changing decision, think carefully about the unique benefits of a structured settlement that Congress has made available exclusively for people just like you.
If you have additional questions, and have not already done so, be sure to ask your attorney to introduce you to one of Independent Life’s highly qualified professional structured settlement agents.
