I was poisoned at the hospital and I'm about ready to collect my settlement
In most cases malpractice settlements are not taxable but our reportable. Discuss this matter with the attorney handling the claim for you. If you do not have an attorney handling the claim for you you may certainly wish to consider hiring an attorney to review your situation.
Most are not taxable depending on if lost wages is part of the recovery. Consult with an experienced tax attorney.
