The long hard road to getting your personal injury claim resolved has resulted in a settlement check. Instead of taking your claim to trial, your personal injury attorney negotiated a favorable settlement that gets you the compensation you deserve. Instead of waiting months, if not more than a year for compensation, you can get back to work knowing the litigation process worked for you.
Receiving a settlement check relieves the stress and anxiety that often accompanies personal injury litigation. However, you now face a completely different problem, although it is a problem you should enthusiastically embrace.
You need to learn about settlement checks and the best use for them post-accident.
The first thing on your to-do list involves educating yourself about the details of your legal settlement. You must consider several factors before you decide what you plan to do with your funds.
