The Plaintiff Recovery Trust
Increasing the amount plaintiffs keep in taxable cases. Without it, plaintiffs are taxed on proceeds paid to their lawyers.
Increasing Your After-Tax Recovery
Plaintiffs often keep half of what they should, paying tax on winnings their lawyers keep. Lawyers then pay tax on the same money. The Recovery Trust avoids this "Double Tax."

The Recovery Trust at Work
If your injury claim is owned by the Recovery Trust, you're not taxed on winnings paid out in legal fees. Instead, you pay tax only on the amount you keep.
The Recovery Trust supports deferral arrangements of all kinds and durations. Once created, the Recovery Trust distributes ownership of your future payments.
Often, plaintiffs structure less in order to pay taxes on the fee portion of their settlement. The Recovery Trust avoids those taxes, allowing larger or longer payments.
