2021 Structured Settlements Poll

Aug 25, 2021

MetLife's 2021 Structured Settlements Poll reveals hidden opportunities for brokers to add more value and continue supporting both attorneys and claimants. 

Structured settlements have been a crucial part of personal injury law for decades.
However, our new poll reveals hidden opportunities for brokers to add more
value and continue supporting both attorneys and claimants.

So when do personal injury attorneys recommend structured settlements? And what can structured settlement brokers do to help attorneys in situations where a structured settlement can be the ideal course of action?

To answer these questions and more, MetLife polled over 250 personal injury attorneys to find out why and when they recommend structured settlements—and what they can use from brokers to help facilitate their clients’ settlements.

MetLife’s new Structured Settlements Poll contains both insightful data and powerful anecdotes from lawyers who know: 1) the downside to lump-sum settlements; 2) the real-life benefits of structured settlements; and, 3) how attorneys partner with their brokers to further educate claimants.

This report helps address three of the most top-of-mind questions surrounding brokers and structured settlements:       

  • Are personal injury attorneys comfortable with structured settlements?
  • Why does an attorney choose to recommend a structured settlement to a client?
  • How can brokers help attorneys ensure their clients’ settlements lasts?
