Just in case the over-sized letters in the third choice didn't make it obvious enough, the correct answer is indeed C.
That's right. I've been talking with folks about Non-Physical Injury Structured Settlements until I'm blue in the face.
The reason is simple.
After nearly 25 years in the structured settlements industry, it's become abundantly clear to me that these represent some of THE BEST money-saving settlement options available to plaintiffs today because...
- Large, non-physical injury CASH settlements typically have immediate and often severe adverse tax consequences which can erode one's settlement value quite dramatically
- Non-Physical Injury Structured Settlements can help mitigate this tax burden
Use of traditional structured settlements for personal, physical injury claims remains an excellent claim resolution tool and settlement option for many, many accident survivors.
And they will remain popular for years to come.
But for anyone anticipating a personal, non-physical injury settlement of any meaningful size, failure to structure will almost certainly result in fewer post-settlement dollars in the bank.
Or simply . . .
Settle for Cash = Likely Pay More Taxes = Probably Less Money to Plaintiff
