A Trusted Partner

Begley Law Group, PC has a respected history of working with personal injury attorneys on litigation involving clients who have suffered injuries. These cases are complicated and require a certain level of expertise from the initial meeting through the period following the settlement. After all, the settlement isn’t necessarily settled at your final meeting. There are many details that need to be resolved in order to protect the injured party’s settlement. Our services go far beyond document drafting. Whether a Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement is necessary, tax planning, lien resolution, special needs trust or settlement preservation trust is required, let us simplify the details for you. We will help ensure that the injured party receives a quality settlement and then some.

Public Benefits

One of the most important considerations for settlement in a personal injury case is protection of public benefits. A special needs trust allows an injured or disabled person to maintain public benefits following settlement. When injured parties receive assets, their entitlement to public resources, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Medicaid, may be lost or reduced. A Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement protects the Medicare eligibility of disabled or injured persons. At Begley Law Group, PC, we understand the stringent rules and regulations that have been imposed on special needs trusts by governmental agencies, and will help you navigate the system for optimum client results. As a member of the national, non-profit Special Needs Alliance, we are committed to assisting personal injury attorneys in resolving cases to enhance settlement results of their disabled clients and maintain the eligibility of these clients’ public benefits.

You Fight to Protect Others. Who’s protecting You?

When handling personal injury cases, there are many considerations that need to be addressed prior to or at the time of settlement. Unfortunately, too often, personal injury attorneys find this out by being sued by the very clients they fought to protect. Begley Law Group, PC can help you avoid this trend through various services such as preparing trusts, compromising potential claims or liens, and consulting on the victim’s potential need. By taking these steps together, not only will you be protected, but it will likely provide a better outcome for your client.
