This article describes how “structured settlements” are used in serious personal injury actions.

Anyone with a serious injury claim should consider using a structured settlement.

Mckellar Structured Settlements Inc. explains what a structured settlement is, and how they work, in this online article below.

Our firm’s Personal Injury Group has successfully concluded numerous structured settlements on behalf of seriously injured claimants.

There are many factors to consider is deciding whether a structure is right for an individual, and what form the structure should take.
