What Happens After My Personal Injury Trial?

Слайд 1

Some cases of personal injury settlement end quickly while others go on for extended periods of time.

Слайд 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.

Слайд 3

For those who get their settlement quickly PROPER PLANNING must be heeded.

Слайд 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:

Слайд 5

The rest should go to pay down any debt you have or be set aside for savings.

Слайд 6

This is fairly simple.

Слайд 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.

Слайд 8

For these cases, the following steps should be followed.

Слайд 9

STEP 1 Relax. The Money is in no Rush

Слайд 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.

Слайд 11

The same is true with a court case.

Слайд 12

The months (or years) have had emotional ups and downs, and now it is over.

Слайд 13

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.

Слайд 14

This is important because even if you receive a settlement in excess of $1 million it can be gone in less than a year.

Слайд 15

STEP 2 Consider the Advice You Would Give Someone Else

Слайд 16

If someone else came into the kind of money you have just received, what advice would you give them? ?

Слайд 17

Would you tell them to go to college? ?

Слайд 18

Should they start a business? ?

Слайд 19

Is it best to put half away for retirement and the rest toward a home? ?

Слайд 20

If this is your advice to them, would you take it from yourself? ?

Слайд 21

This is important because receiving a lump sum is not always as grand as we hope it to be, which is why when we receive a tax return it is usually already called for.

Слайд 22

Knowing this, it is wise to spend a portion of time planning what to do.

Слайд 23

STEP 3 Find a Personal Financial Advisor

Слайд 24

A personal injury attorney is not qualified to tell you how to handle your money …

Слайд 25

… but she probably has a lot of experience in seeing people receive large sums of cash only to have wasted it.

Слайд 26

Additionally, she may know who to refer you to.

Слайд 27

Your lawyer has been by your side helping you in ways that most people wouldn't know how.

Слайд 28

Before parting ways you should seek out who they would refer you to so that your money can be properly managed.

Слайд 29

The result will be that 5, 10, and 15 years from now you can still have your money while receiving interest payments.

Слайд 30

By following these three steps you can make sure that you make the most of the money you get.

Слайд 31
