how long of time does it take for some one to get settlement payment from the date of signing settlement

It depends on the circumstances. If it involves a lawsuit, then the time is usually longer. Payment to client may be further held up if Medicare, Medicaid, or health insurer is making a claim for reimbursement. Also providers under letters of protection may need to agree to reductions before the client can be paid. If you have a lawyer, talk to him about the timing. If you suspect foul play, contact another lawyer.
I agree with Roger Merrill. Sometimes it takes 2 to 4 months to get all of these things worked out. Call your lawyer, I'm sure he will tell you.
