If I win or settle my case, how quickly will I get the money?

When a case settles, both sides discuss and agree on how quickly the funds will be made available to the Plaintiff.  Generally, the parties agree that payment will be made within weeks of signing the settlement agreement.  In settlements, the parties have control of the terms of the settlement and can negotiate the deadline for paying the Plaintiff.  When a case is won at trial, payment is required to be made within weeks of the judgment.  If an appeal is filed, the payment will not likely be made until after all of the appeals are exhausted.  An appeal sometimes takes more than 1 year to complete.
