Settlements Paid in Cash

Settlements Paid in Cash Sometimes our clients elect to take their settlements in cash. Here, a very experienced crabber/longliner suffered back problems and we resolved his case within a few months, with a cash money settlement well into the six figures. The day of receipt of his settlement he was back under contract, going back to work in the Alaska fishery, with an enormous amount of tax-free cash in his backpack. We helped him find the best medical care, obtained a settlement promptly, got him right back to work once his settlement was final and sent him on his way with money to last for a very very long time. You can’t see the smile on his face in this photo, but we will tell you, he is one very happy camper!
