The months (or years) have had emotional

The best thing you can do for yourself
is settle back and take stock of what
happened, what you have, and what to
do next.
This is important because even if you

qualified to tell you how to handle
your money …
… but she probably has a lot of
experience in seeing people receive
large sums of cash only to have

Additionally, she may know

years from now you can still have your
money while receiving interest
payments.
By following these three steps
you can make sure that you make
the most of the money you get.

What Happens After My Personal Injury Trial?

  1. 1. Some cases of personal injury settlement end quickly while others go on for extended periods of time.
  2. 2. Depending on how long it takes for you to get the money you need, there are certain actions to take so as to make the most of your money and life.
  3. 3. For those who get their settlement quickly PROPER PLANNING must be heeded.
  4. 4. If you receive $15,000 it's okay to go and take a small portion of it and enjoy yourself by going to a spa, buying some new clothes for work, or even taking a weekend getaway to someplace nearby. FOR EXAMPLE:
  5. 5. The rest should go to pay down any debt you have or be set aside for savings.
  6. 6. This is fairly simple.
  7. 7. However, for those who are in lawsuits that go on for extended periods of time there is usually much more money at stake, and, therefore, much more planning that should be considered.
  8. 8. For these cases, the following steps should be followed.
  9. 9. STEP 1
  10. 10. Anything you have ever done that has taken up an extended period of time - be it military service, college, or a job - will remain with you afterward.
  11. 11. The same is true with a court case.
