Typically, a plaintiff in a personal injury case will be awarded damages in a lump sum, unless they exceed $200,000. These payments are provided in full, paying the complete compensation sum at once. However, for any compensation over $200,000, a plaintiff and defendant can work out an agreement in which the plaintiff is awarded damages through a structured settlement. These payments occur over regular intervals until the full amount of compensation is provided to the claimant.
