How Long After the Settlement or Verdict Till You Get PAID?


Personal Injury Win - Verdict
Personal Injury Win - Verdict

Invariably, injury victims have one question up there with how much they will get paid, and that resounding question is:

  • "How long after the settlement will it take to get me paid?"

Typically, the profit-driven insurance company has to order a draft payment from its home office. This does not happen overnight. In fact, there could be a backlog. They are in no hurry to pay.

So normally, the firm or attorney won’t send a demand package until you at your point of maximum medical recovery. Also, even after the payment gets deposited into the bank by your PI lawyer, those lawyers must first resolve medical and Medical/Medicare liens, if they exist.

Also, military service-members may have Tri Care Liens. All this must get taken care of before the client gets paid. So even though the lawyer has money in the attorney-client trust account, it doesn't mean you're getting paid right away in all cases. This is the part of the case where patience is a virtue.
