How long does it take to get a settlement check once an agreement is reached? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Typically, once the victim has signed the release and agreement, the insurance company will usually send the check within a week or two. If you have a personal injury attorney representing you, the check will be sent to the attorney, who will put together a settlement statement. This statement will include the total funds collected from the insurance company, minus the attorney fees, court costs, and any other necessary deductions. Once the victim signs the settlement statement, the attorney will release the funds.
