Every Ringler advisor understands how to make an attorney’s job easier during settlement negotiations by adhering to the highest professional standards and providing everyone involved with prompt, objective advice. Here’s a quick overview of what you can expect from your Ringler consultant:
Step 1: Educate and Reassure
We know your client may not be familiar with settlement planning or structured settlements. So we start by listening respectfully to all parties as we gather as much information as possible about the full economic impact of the injury on your client. Then we take the time to explain our role and how we will help you and your client make an informed decision by exploring all available financial options, including a structured settlement.
Step 2: Create a Comprehensive, Flexible Settlement Plan
Your experienced Ringler consultant will use a number of financial planning tools and the latest data technologies to accurately determine the future costs associated with your client’s case. These tools include damage analysis and life care plans, sub-standard age ratings and various trusts. Experienced Ringler consultants are also well versed in multiple contingencies, including Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. As the only settlement firm with national reach, we have access to resources that are just not available to others.
Step 3: Respond Quickly and With Candor
Once a settlement conference begins, you need a quick and candid assessment of the various proposals and counter-proposals on your client’s financial interests. Ringler consultants come prepared with state-of-the-art mobile technologies that allow us to instantly assess the financial impact of a proposal on your client’s care plan while also quoting the annuities market with a push of a button. Each consultant is also supported 24-7 by local offices and staff equipped with the latest technologies.
We think our dedication to objectivity and collaboration during negotiations can help smooth the way to a successful settlement, saving you and your client time and frustration.
