Settle Your Case Right

Your lawsuit may be the most valuable asset you own. 

It needs to provide for your future. 


Take care to understand what you’ll actually keep, and measure that against what you need. You can do this if you ask the right questions.


When the defendant offers a settlement, organized thinking often takes a backseat to the pressure to close the case. Don’t let it. You can get organized in just a few days if needed – but it’s only a priority if you make it a priority.


Here are some of the questions you should be asking:

  • Do I need an attorney?

  • How much will my lawyer keep?

  • What are the key steps in the claims process?

  • How will an insurance company evaluate my claim?

  • What new expenses will my injury cause?

  • How much will I pay in taxes?

  • What if I use a “structured settlement”?

  • What government benefits can I receive?

  • Do I need to think about investing before settling?

  • How do I make sure my settlement money lasts?

  • Who is asking these questions for me?

In the NextPhase Community we discuss how to answer these questions. There’s no one answer for everyone – but there is an answer for you. Become a Member for free. Benefit more as an Advanced Member.
