If someone suffers an injury and needs care, the experienced and knowledgeable New York attorneys at Russo Law Group, P.C. can help you identify public assistance programs and understand eligibility requirements as well as make sure that those benefits are not lost after settlement of the case.
The Process of Disability Settlement Planning in New York
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 as a result of an injury, to continue to receive those benefits. As New York disability 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 inception of the lawsuit in the state of 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.
While the New York trial attorney’s job is to aid in the case at hand, 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 help provide a better quality of life while at the same time preserving important government benefits.
Russo Law Group, P.C. helps you and your loved ones handle Estate Planning, Elder Law, Special Needs Planning, Medicaid Planning, Trust & Estate, Guardianship, Small Business Planning, and Real Estate Law. We welcome you to contact our Garden City, Lido Beach, Islandia, or Manhattan, New York law offices to learn more about how we can help address your disability planning legal matters.
