Organized Claim Settlements
For the settlement of your injury claim, you might receive some amount from the court. However, for long term care, it is almost impossible to evaluate the right compensation. The accused person might appeal to the court for his incapability to pay the lump sum amount. In return, he might get the order to complete the settlement in installments.
Often times a court will award a flat sum to be paid to the plaintiff for the entire injury. Other times, it's impossible to know how much money will be needed for long-term care and rehabilitation. Also, sometimes defendants simply cannot pay the amount owed all at once. So, structured settlements let the defendant pay in installments over time.
