If I file bankruptcy, will they take my lawsuit settlement?

If you have a claim for personal injury or medical malpractice against a third party, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee has the right to settle your claim and use the funds to pay your creditors. If you have a claim, you should consider filing a Chapter 13 so you remain control of the claim. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, I suggest consulting with an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
