If you or someone you love suffers an injury and needs care, the experienced and knowledgeable New York disability and settlement attorneys at Russo Law Group, P.C. can help. We identify public assistance programs, explain eligibility requirements, and ensure benefits aren’t lost after the case settles.
The Process of Disability Settlement Planning in New York (Long Island and New York City)
At Russo Law Group, P.C., we also understand how important it is for a person who receives government benefits, such as SSI and Medicaid, to continue to qualify for those benefits after they sustain a personal injury. As New York disability settlement planning attorneys, we assist trial lawyers in resolving their cases in ways that protect eligibility for government benefits.
Our legal services can begin as early as the lawsuit’s inception in New York. We provide expert witness testimony, establish special needs trusts to protect the settlement from hindering the person’s public benefits, and aid in the court process to fund the trust once created.
The Difference in the Role of Trial Attorney and Settlement Planning Attorney
While the New York trial attorney’s job is to process the personal injury case, our focus is on the long-term needs of the injured person. Our goal at Russo Law Group, P.C. is to help create and implement a disability plan so that the injured person’s settlement can provide a better quality of life while preserving important government benefits. We ensure that the money from the settlement doesn’t suddenly disappear. It should provide a safety net for future medical expenses, home care, and other needs, making it possible to pursue their dreams.
