Judgment/Settlement Distribution

Structured settlements are lawsuit settlements involving specific payments made over a period of time. Insurance companies often buy life insurance products to pay the costs of such structured settlements. Structured settlements more often than not offer only small monthly payments. As such, many structured settlement firms try to purchase these lucrative contracts at pennies on the dollar. The structured settlement is then sold for an immediate lump sum.
