Also, a couple of months ago, a mother wrote into Ann Landers (or Dear Abby) complaining about her ungrateful daughter, who had received a significant settlement from having been the victim of a serious accident, and had no intention of sharing it with her parents.

I seem to remember the daughter saying that the money was needed for her future medical expenses. My roommate received a small settlement from an accident that prevents her from working in her field. By the time the lawyers got done with it, it covered about three years of medical bills. (When you lose your job, you lose your insurance, and your medical condition is now "pre-existing" at any new job.) The remaining bills for the rest of her life will have to come out of her pocket.
