Benefits of Choosing a Lump Sum Settlement
One of the biggest advantages of going with a lump sum settlement is accessing your settlement immediately. When you are struggling to cover your basic living expenses or are heading into considerable debt, obtaining all your settlement funds at once can help ease your financial burden.
Furthermore, if the amount of money you are awarded is not substantial, obtaining a structured settlement can afford little benefit. Generally, if your settlement is for $150,000 or less, going with a structured settlement may not be in your best interests. If you go with a lump sum settlement, you can settle your case more quickly and access the funds you need when you need the most.

What Is a Structured Settlement?
In a structured settlement, the defendant or liable insurance provider will need to pay the structured settlement to another insurance company specializing in structured settlement cases. Then, this insurance company will pay you your structured settlement over a period of time.
For this reason, before you decide to go with a structured settlement, it is important to do considerable research into the insurance company you choose. This is because your ability to obtain your structured settlement over time will rely on the success of the insurer. If the insurance company goes under, you will no longer be able to access your structured settlement.
In this way, structured settlements may be considered riskier than lump sum settlements. However, one of the benefits of structured settlements is the ability to negotiate the terms of the settlement:
- How much money are you hoping to receive regularly
- How often are you hoping to obtain payments
- How long your payments will be distributed
- If you want the option to obtain a lump sum settlement
- How do you want your structured settlement distributed if you pass away
Benefits of Structured Settlements
Unfortunately, although lump sum settlements can seem like an attractive option, for many, this is not the case. Those who opt for a structured settlement may find that they are more financially secure by going west payouts over a period of time. This way, they do not overspend and wind up in considerable financial debt.
Structured settlements also reduce the taxes you will be required to pay. Although personal injury settlements are not typically taxable, you will be required to pay taxes on any returns you generate by investing your settlement money. Structured settlements can allow for reduced tax obligations.
What About Pre-Settlement Legal Funding?
After you have made the decision to obtain a lump sum settlement or a structured settlement, you may still be in limbo while you wait for your funds to come through.
When you need access to your money now, obtaining pre-settlement legal funding may be in your best interests. Legal funding means you will not need to wait for your money to come in through the insurance company or defendant.
If you opted for a structured settlement and are waiting for your next payment to come in, legal funding can be a great way for you to get a cash advance on these funds.
