Structured Settlements: What the NLCP Needs to Know

The goal of every settlement is to achieve the best claim outcome for the injured claimant and their family. While life care planners identify the needs and costs for injured individuals, settlement consultants use Structured Settlements to fund the claimant’s future needs via periodic payments. This webinar will include an explanation of what a structured settlement is, how a structured settlement can be quoted to fund a claimant’s life care plan, and how both sides (plaintiff and defense) can use a claimant’s life care plan funded with a structured settlement to negotiate a settlement that meets the claimant’s immediate and future needs.
