Types of Structured Settlements

A structured settlement is money that’s been awarded to someone who’s won a lawsuit. However, the person can’t access the money all at once — only in installments.

Most common settlement types

Typically, a predetermined schedule will be created detailing when and how often they’ll receive a payment. The installments are an alternative to large compensatory lump sums that usually don’t offer long-term financial stability.


The most common types of structured settlements involve the following:


    Medical Malpractice

    Any act or omission by a physician during treatment of a patient that deviates from accepted norms of practice in the medical community and causes an injury to the patient. Medical malpractice is a specific subset of tort law that deals with professional negligence.


    Personal Injury

    An injury to a person’s body or mind, as the result of an accident.


    Wrongful Death

    When a person’s death is caused by a negligent or intentional act of a wrongdoer.
