"Money alone can't make up for the pain from a severe injury. But a structured settlement's guaranteed tax-free income can go a long way toward helping people put their lives back together after a tragedy."

Hon. John Lewis

New CLM Survey

CLM Advisors recently announced the release of a new Industry Study that examines claims professionals’ perceptions, utilization and understanding of structured settlements. The Study, entitled "Delivering High Value Services: Claims Professionals and Structured Settlements" was commissioned by the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA). The Study profiles the thoughts and observations of more than 100 claims professionals from a diverse group of property and casualty insurance companies. Topics covered include both the process for obtaining and the value of using structures, and also thoughts about the distinct value of using structured settlement consultants in the claim resolution process. This survey of front line claims professionals follows a March 2014 CLM Advisors’ report, which surveyed senior and chief claim officers on the same topic. This Study’s results were unveiled at the 2014 NSSTA Fall Educational Meeting in La Jolla, CA on October 30, 2014 and are now available to NSSTA Members, by clicking here.

Video of the Month

Experienced and successful personal injury attorney, Thomas M. Bond from the firm of Kaplan/Bond in Boston tells you why a structured settlement is the best choice for the longterm financial security for you and your family when your lawsuit settles for a large sum. Hear how one man made the wrong choice and tragically lost everything.

The real benefit of a structured settlement comes when the structured settlement consultant shows the variety of payment options and all the parties see how far they can make the money go.
