Posted by Smiley & Smiley on Jun 15, 2021 11:01:09 AM

When you're injured  and feel you have a claim for a personal injury lawsuit, one of the first questions that may enter your mind is whether winning the case will create a tax liability. After all, who wants to feel like they've won such a victory just to be saddled with a new problem?

Fortunately, the short answer is no. Personal injury lawsuit winnings are not taxable.

Our goal with clients is to get everything as organized as possible when starting a suit. This ensures there are no surprises when we begin negotiating, and when an we establish an adequate burden of proof we can often reach a favorable settlement without having to go to trial.

That avoids what would be months or even years hashing out the situation in a court room.

Since those winnings are not taxable, that means you can move on with your life as expediently as possible.
