Lump Sums

Managing a Lump Sum

Many injury victims find it very difficult to manage a lump sum settlement on their own. Implementing a sound financial plan with the right combination of investments can prevent this from happening. However, most financial products have costs associated with them and even though a physical injury recovery is tax-free, once invested the gains are taxable in nearly any product except for structured settlements. Nevertheless, there are many good options for managing your physical injury recovery and we can assist you developing a plan that is right for you. Certain financial products have less risk and can offer guarantees of principal to limit downside risk since you only get one opportunity to preserve your recovery. Our job is to give you sound advice about the options to let you make the best possible decision.

You may want to consider mutual funds, managed accounts, annuities, life insurance, college plans and long term care insurance. All of these products can be wrapped up inside trusts to protect you and your loved ones. It is important to explore the many options available and that is where we come in.


"In my business as a plaintiff’s products liability lawyer, everything begins and ends with our clients. In our firm we never handle a significant case without the assistance of Synergy. Why? Very simple: we trust Synergy with our clients. Yes, Synergy only works with plaintiffs. And yes, they are highly technically proficient and know this business cold. But what makes them different from others is that they listen to our clients, make our clients comfortable with complex issues, and always put the interests of the client first. In my opinion, because of their unique ability to handle people with sincerity and compassion in their time of crisis, they stand head and shoulders above his competition."
