Are they offering unfair structured settlements? Some companies will use internal structured settlements to look like they are offering people more money. Often the problem is that by being internal, they are keeping the money and they are not looking for the best rates on what they are selling you. I have found many cases where going to the right person to review the structured settlement can make the difference in hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Further, it gets to the bottom of whether or not a structure that is being offered is laid out in a manner that makes the most difference in helping you deal with your injuries.
