Many personal injury victims’ credit scores decrease substantially before they are able to receive their personal injury settlements. There are many reasons why this happens. First, personal injury victims are often out of work. Thus, they often have difficulty paying their bills. Their credit starts getting hit as soon as they miss a couple payments. The longer it takes to get a settlement, the more payments they miss. It doesn’t take long before their credit has taken a significant hit.

Another reason personal injury victims’ credit suffers is because they often try to make up for the loss of income by maxing out their current lines of credit. The more debt they put on credit cards, the more their credit score decreases.

Once there are no more credit cards to max out, many individuals will attempt to get new lines of credit. Individuals who try to get new credit cards will often end up will new hard inquiries on their accounts from having their credit checked. This automatically decreases the individual’s credit score. Further, many personal injury victims do not have good credit because they have missed payments while they were dealing with their injury and do not get approved for the credit cards. Loans also typically require credit checks which can decrease the individual’s credit score. Further, most loans require a consistent income which may not be available since many personal injury victims are out of work. Thus, attempts at getting new lines of credit often result in a decreased credit score and no extra money for personal injury victims.
