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 are tempted to help him out.

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.
