Washington, DC, United States, 2012/02/28 - The National Structured Settlements Trade Association and the law firm of Deutsch Kerrigan & Stiles present a new video, "Structured settlements & better claims resolution" - NSSTA.com.
"A structured settlement may not actually save the defendant a dollar amount. But it may make a great savings in that it may be the very vehicle that makes the settlement possible when the plaintiff learns of its availability and what it can provide."
That's Charles Leche, senior partner at the Deutsch Kerrigan & Stiles law firm, discussing one of the benefits of structured settlements for insurance claims. Named a Best Lawyer in America since 2007 and a Louisiana Super Lawyer, Mr. Leche is one of the nation's leading defense attorneys, specializing in maritime, product liability and mass tort litigation.
Recently, Mr. Leche delivered a seminar on effective claims resolution, with a significant portion of his presentation devoted to structured settlements.
The National Structured Settlements Trade Association and Deutsch Kerrigan are pleased to present excerpts in a new video,"Structured settlements & better claims resolution." Among Mr. Leche's observations:
"The services of a good structured settlement consultant are invaluable in this situation and particularly useful in a mediation environment where the benefits of a structured settlement can be explained directly to the injured person or in the case of a minor, to his or her guardian."
"Structured settlements can be extremely valuable...even though large sums of money may not be involved."
Since 1985, the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (nssta.com) has been the leading voice of the structured settlement industry. NSSTA has a membership of nearly 1,200 individual NSSTA members including licensed insurance brokers, attorneys, insurance officials and others involved in establishing structured settlements to resolve physical injury and workers' compensation claims. Recognized by Congress since 1982, structured settlements provide long-term, tax-free income for accident victims and their families.
