 victims throughout massachusetts i fight to make sure that each client receives all the compensation and medical treatment that they're entitled to without getting taken advantage of by insurance company well in massachusetts um after a personal injury claim whether it's a car accident personal injury claim or some other type of personal injury claim once it's been settled which means that your attorney has negotiated with the insurance adjuster or sometimes the insurance defense lawyer to settle your case sometimes that takes place in informal negotiations or sometimes it takes place in a process called mediation but once you reach a point where your attorney has negotiated the maximum amount of money that the insurance company will settle will pay to settle your personal injury claim and you've accepted the settlement off and negotiated by your attorney then you have to sign what's called a release a release is a written contract that the insurance company has agreed to pay you a certain lump sum of money amount of money in exchange for your uh promise your legal promise not to file a lawsuit against their insured against their client and against the insurance company for the injuries that you sustained in the accident the insurance company when they're making payments of 500 or more in massachusetts has to do what's called a dor check so they have to check to see if there are any unpaid child support unpaid taxes whether mass health which is the massachusetts medicaid program has paid medical treatment related to your car accident in which case there would be a lien and also they have to check cms to see whether or not there are any medicare liens once they've done that check and assuming there are no liens then the insurance company is going to send the settlement check to your attorney the check will be made payable to you and to your attorney or your attorney's law firm your attorney then will uh deposit the check in uh the law firm's ialta account which is a client uh fund account that's uh reserved separate from the law firm's operating account and once the um settlement funds have cleared then the attorney will process the settlement he'll or she will issue the payments for the fee uh for any legal expenses that were being being burst out of the settlement and uh the net amount to you the net settlement check to you and you'll either come to your lawyer's office to pick up the settlement check or if you prefer and have asked your attorney to mail it to your attorney will follow your instructions and mail you your net settlement check if you've been injured in a car accident due to someone else's fault in massachusetts and the accident occurred recently you should contact experienced car accident attorney to discuss your case see what your legal rights are if you'd like to contact me directly you can call me at the office the number appears below this video if you'd like to send me an email our email address appears in the description below this video if you prefer to visit my website you'll find contact forms that you can submit fill out and submit to us and i'll be happy to reach back i'll talk with you about how the accident happened uh what are your injuries which in medical treatment we'll discuss what available insurance coverages there are and what i'd recommend for next steps so that we can try and ensure that we maximize whatever recovery is available to you and if you found the information in this video informative and helpful please like the video subscribe to my youtube channel and click the bell icon below so that you receive notifications in my future videos and share this video with your friends and family How Are Personal Injury Settlements Paid Out? | Massachusetts Car Accident Lawyer
