How will my compensation be paid if I win?
When a plaintiff’s case is successful, they may receive compensation in one of two ways. The first is to receive all their compensation in a single payment, or lump sum. This type of payment is much less common than what is known as a structured settlement. These payments provide compensation over a set period of time, providing payments relatively slowly, but eventually in full. Depending on how the case is completed and what agreements are made, a claimant may expect either form of payment if their claim is successful.
