September 2007 - Structured Settlements Survey Report
The results of a consumer survey of more than 1,000 Americans illustrate the need to educate Americans on structured settlements. Without awareness, the majority of those impacted by personal injury or accidental death cases run the risk of making ill-informed choices that may jeopardize long-term financial health. The survey was conducted by Esearch.com, Inc., and was sponsored by American General Structured Settlements.
The research, conducted in September 2007, focused specifically on settlements awarded in personal injury cases. Of the respondents, 80 percent had no direct connection to a personal injury case, while the remaining 20 percent cited that they or a family member were involved in a personal injury case.
Those who had no connection to a personal injury case were asked to read two hypothetical scenarios and answer questions on how they would react. Those with a direct connection to a personal injury case were not only asked to read the hypothetical scenarios, but also answer questions on their real life experience.
The following links share the findings from the survey.
