Cons of a Structured Settlement

Payment structuring cannot be changed. There can be unforeseen circumstances that occur where some personal injury claimants suddenly need the money. But it cannot be borrowed against a structured settlement. Or it could be that inflation increases and the payments are no longer enough. Once the plan has been set up, it usually can’t be changed.  

Return may not be significant. Sometimes the return isn’t as substantial as it would be when investing a lump sum.
