What Is the Process of Receiving a Settlement Check After Winning My Case?
The Brown Firm created this infographic to clearly explain the steps on a settlement check’s journey. When you know what’s involved, you’ll have a sense of where your money is, and when it will get to you.
When you’ve been injured because of someone else’s negligence, winning your case is a major cause for celebration. Of course, finally holding that compensation money in your hand is the true goal.
So how does the settlement check get from the at-fault party’s insurance company to your bank account?
The process is more involved than simply receiving a check once a settlement agreement is reached. Signing paperwork, negotiating debt balances, and waiting for the mail are all part of getting your money in your hands.
Your Settlement Check Has Work to Do Before Getting to YouYour successful personal injury case affirms how much the accident and your injuries impact your life. But of course, validation alone only does so much. You deserve fair financial compensation so you can start to rebuild.

Understanding what has to happen makes it easier to plan everything, from paying the bills to your dreams for the future. Learn about the journey of a personal injury settlement check, including:
