Enforcement of Jury Decision (Payment)

After you go to court(with 12 man jury) and you are awarded a settlement for the crime in question is the guilty party not made to pay what the jury awards the injured party?''

Injured party was awarded $30,000 by the jury but to date the court/lawyers/no one has said how the guilty party will pay or put forth an effort to enforce the jury decision. It has been four months since the jury decision but the injured party has not received a penny of the awarded amount. How is the payment usually handled? Should the court decide - lump sum/garnished wages/ etc??? Where should we go from here??
