With much of the DePuy ASR hip settlement litigation drawing to a close, now is the time to ensure your last step is the one that’s right for you.

For many, an all cash settlement will make the most sense.

But others will want to take advantage of a unique settlement opportunity not available to the general public.

Those who opt for the latter can arrange to structure all or part of their recovery in such a way that guaranteed future income – which is 100% tax-free – will be paid to them according to a schedule they choose.

Many will find this structured settlement method preferable for its safety, security, tax efficiency, competitive relative rate of return and ease of use.

IMPORTANT:   Certain tax code restrictions and limitations exist so it’s vital for clients to understand their options before taking receipt of any settlement funds.
