It’s inevitable. Your friends, your family and even your coworkers will, at some point learn that you have settled your New York personal injury accident lawsuit. They’re happy for you. They’re glad you were able to get compensated for your injuries.

Next thing you know, one of your friends comes to you in desperation asking to borrow money. He knows you just came into a lot of settlement money. He needs money to pay his rent. Otherwise he’s going to be evicted.

You feel bad for him. You are tempted to help him out.

Next thing you know, one of your coworkers comes to you asking for money to buy a car. Shortly after that one of your relatives comes to you and tells you a sob story and asks to borrow money.

These people are all well meaning, but they are under the impression that you have money sitting under your mattress and can loan them money like a bank.

There are tips and strategies you can use in order to avoid being inundated with requests from friends, family and coworkers to borrow your settlement money.

Remember, your settlement is designed to help you with your expenses and to pay for things like your children’s college tuition and is designed to last you for your entire lifetime. If you begin to squander it by spending it or giving it away, you will quickly learn that in a few short years you will have little or no money left.
