8 months to a year, possibly longer. You need a lawyer if you want it quicker.

In the state of Illinios once you accept an settlement offer how long does it take before you should receive a check?
As long as you owe back child support, the state has any right to take a portion if not the whole amount of the settlement and apply it towards to rearage payment.
Generally they will take a portion of the settlement plus costs.
They won't take your settlement away but you should pay some of what you owe on your back taxes. This won't happen automatically.
Yes, it is better to take a lump sum rather than annuities. Lump sums allow you to invest them yourself in places you want to invest them. If you are afraid you will spend the money too fast, take the annuity.
My husband is currently on workmans comp and has been since July 2006. It took about 6 weeks before we received the first check from workmans comp. However it was back dated to the date of the injury, and paid in one lump sum. From that point we receive checks weekly.
The court should certainly take a PI settlement into account.
If a person wins a lawsuit, a settlement agreement may be reached that provides income to the plaintiff in one large lump sum, but the timing of payment may be at some time in the future. There may be appeals that take up time before the ultimate settlement occurs. Other awards, like a large lottery win, promise a future lump sum settlement. Divorces may also contain lump sum settlement agreements that are to occur in the future. These lump sum settlement agreements can be bought and sold like assets. Occasionally there is some court involvement if the settlement requires supervision to protect the interests of the settlement holder. The main reason a court might intervene in the sale of a lump sum settlement would only be to protect the person who is to receive that settlement. Perhaps a person is physically or mentally disabled for life and can no longer work. The lump sum settlement provides needed income for that person that may be expected to last for their lifetime. If a settlement holder sells their arrangement to obtain a lump sum of cash right now, instead of in the future, that is a possibility. They will pay a large fee to the company that buys out their settlement. They receive a large, but lesser amount of cash at one time, and they get it right now instead of at some future date. If a lump sum settlement is sold, the payee is no longer the person who will receive the future lump sum. The company that has loaned them the lump sum of cash will receive the large payment whenever it does materialize. The lender gets a big fee plus their money back. It is an investment for them and an immediate windfall for the person who is selling out their settlement agreement. There are many reasons for wanting to sell out a lump sum settlement agreement before it is actually paid. What a person does with their settlement is optional unless the court is supervising the settlement for the recipient.
