You have reached the end of the litigation process with a favorable outcome. Now, you want to know how long it takes for the funds awarded to settle? The answer is typically between one and six weeks after your attorney reaches a settlement or the judge hearing your case awards you monetary damages. The reason why it takes as long as it does is your lawyer receives your settlement check to take care of certain expenses before you receive just compensation. Whether you receive compensation within one week or six weeks of reaching a settlement or winning a favorable legal judgment depends on several factors.
