If you have filed a lawsuit against someone who caused you injuries, you likely want to know how long it will take to get settlement money. Some of you may want to wait for your day in court, and others may want a faster settlement negotiated out of court. All victims’ reasons for seeking compensation following an injury are varied and valid, and unique to their circumstances.
How do You Get a Settlement Check?
Getting a settlement check is not a simple or easy process. Every case filed in court has a waiting period. Just think back to when your attorney filed the complaint in your case. How long did it take from when you hired your attorney to when you filed your case in court? Did your attorney send a demand to the insurance company before the case was filed in court? How long did it take to receive a response? Ask your attorney about the court waiting times and any waiting periods specific to your case. For example, lost wages are a form of compensation often sought in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. If you have not returned to work yet, the amount of the award is yet to be determined. Any demand for such compensation will be for less than what your actual lost wages turn out to be.
Get a Pre-settlement Loan
Until the extent of your damages is determined by your attorney, you should consider seeking a pre-settlement loan to help you meet your financial obligations during the waiting period associated with your case. A pre-settlement loan is an advance against the settlement of your case. During the pendency of your lawsuit, you do not have to pay the creditor any money for the funds advanced to you. The loan proceeds are yours to spend as you see fit. When the case is finally settled, whether after trial or out of court, you must pay your advance as well as your attorneys’ fees and court costs before any remaining proceeds are disbursed to you.
