Chapter 13 and personal injury settlement


Recommended Posts

I filed Chapter 13 in December 2011 - paying creditors 60% over 60 months in Kentucky. In March 2015 I tripped and fell in retail store which resulted to a laceration on my cheek. I may be receiving a settlement from the store. Am I required to turn the settlement over to the trustee.

If you have an attorney, I would ask them this question as they should answer it for you as part of their fee.

My guess is that first, any actual expenses that you had (such as medical, lost work pay, etc.) should be paid out of the settlement, then what is left over goes to the trustee to pay on your debt. I am not a BK attorney and have never seen this situation so don't rely on what I say.
