Providing for Your Loved Ones

Careful consideration and understanding of private insurance and public benefits and entitlements are essential when faced with a disability or catastrophic injury. Benefits may be available through Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Medical Assistance, State Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Workers’ Compensation Benefits, Disability Insurance, Motor Vehicle Liability and Health Insurance.

The significant financial demands that result from a disability require that all financial resources be pursued. In addition to social services at the hospital and/or rehabilitation facility, it may be necessary to consult with legal professionals to help in the areas of Social Security Law, Medicare, Medicaid, competency, guardianship, estate planning, and power of attorney.

Insurance and legal claims may need to be brought as a result of the incident that caused the injury or disability (such as motor vehicle collisions, work related injuries, falls, defective automobiles, killer roadways, defective sports and recreational vehicles). It is important that an experienced attorney be brought in early in the process to make sure that the legal rights are protected by preserving evidence, conducting an investigation and interviewing witnesses. The lawyer can analyze all benefits available under an individual’s insurance policies and through public benefits, and determine whether there are deadlines to meet to make sure that your rights to bring a claim is protected.

Damages in personal injury cases can provide additional compensation for long-term medical, residential, custodial and supportive care, as well as the loss of earnings and earning capacity – the ability to earn a living and support family. Finding a lawyer with expertise in the field of traumatic injuries is the only way that a victim and family can be certain that all aspects of their medical benefits and legal rights are properly and fully investigated and protected.
