Medical Malpractice, Personal Injury, Negligence and Nursing Home Abuse

As elder law attorneys, Elder Law Associates PA works
closely with professionals from a variety of disciplines,
such as geriatric care managers, home health professionals,
accountants, other lawyers, financial planners, insurance
agents, and others to provide our seniors and their families
with cutting-edge elder law planning strategies and guidance
and assist our clients in achieving superior results on all matters.
This expertise can be particularly pertinent in personal injury
litigation and cases that involve medical malpractice, negligence
and nursing home abuse.

An injured senior who is considering filing a lawsuit faces a wide variety of questions and challenges, such as:

  • How will this injury affect my ability to remain or become independent?
  • What kind of care do I need and where will I be able to receive that care?
  • Who will pay for the needed care?
  • Are government benefits available to pay for the care?

The senior’s selection of a lawyer to handle the personal injury litigation is a paramount decision. Elder Law Associates PA assists seniors in identifying and working with a personal injury attorney. Whether the injury occurs in a nursing home, assisted living facility or in the community, we work with many established personal injury attorneys in South Florida. We assess a case to determine whether it has merit, the likelihood of success, and make a referral to the most appropriate personal injury attorney to handle the type of injury involved.


Our services do not end with the referral. We continue to remain involved in the litigation throughout, serving as a consultant to the senior and as liaison between the senior and the personal injury attorney. Furthermore, recoveries in personal injury lawsuits may be protected from creditors and structured to allow the senior to remain qualified for government benefits or permit future eligibility for those benefits should long-term care be

With Elder Law Associates PA “quarterbacking” your personal injury lawsuit, we seek a global approach to the analysis of all issues. We also educate and counsel our seniors and their families on legal issues that may not be directly related to the personal injury litigation, but which may be greatly affected by the outcome.

For more information about how we can assist you in your personal injury litigation matter, please contact us or call 1-800-ELDERLAW or (561) 750-3850.

Having gone through an extremely difficult Medicaid application process for my father in Florida years ago and with the recent passing of my mother I desperately needed to find a competent and understanding law firm that could expedite and help me with elder care legal issues for my uncle in Boca.

— Name withheld by request

Living in NYC with nobody to take care of my sick uncle 1,400 miles away, I found the expertise and compassion of Howard Krooks and his wonderful firm to be incredible. I would highly recommend them to anyone and already have.

When my mom had a stroke -- and unfortunately due to her diabetes -- needed to be moved full time to a nursing home, I needed to qualify her for Medicaid, as the cost of proper care is prohibitive. Ellen and her team did an outstanding job, helping to reallocate my mom's assets and quickly qualifying her for Medicaid benefits. It would be almost impossible for the typical person to get through this process in such a short period of time.

I truly thank Elder Law Associates PA for making this happen.

— M.L., Syosset, NY

Very well satisfied. The service was great in communicating all documents and proceedings with us to fully understand everything. The staff was AWESOME! In the future, (if) I know anyone, I will refer you.

I want to tell you how impressed I am with your video. I love that it is not one of the run-of-the-mill sales-pitch videos. It is warm and friendly and from the heart, and makes the viewer (me) feel very welcome to be friends with both of you, although I never met Howie. The two of you seem to have a partnership made in Heaven ... Hope you get at least 25 more years together. My best wishes to you both, and thank you for the work you did for us.

I have been in the Real Estate Business for a little over 50 years and have dealt with literally thousands of attorneys over that time. Ellen Morris has handled my personal account - every time I always comment how great she is.

— D.C., Leesburg, FL

My wife had dementia and there was the eventual problem of running out of insurance coverage and the tax ramifications when she died. I had business fears from an Industrial Park that I owned and all the liabilities from a few business entities that I also owned, Ellen was recommended at least 8 or 9 years ago. This recommendation was the best recommendation that I have ever received. She not only knows all the laws, but also keeps up with all the new requirements that are here in a changing environment.

— D.C., Leesburg, FL

One of the outstanding things about her firm (Elder Law Associates PA) and especially her (Ellen Morris), is the understanding of all the fears one has, and her solving of them. Every time I have had a question, she was there, with an answer and solution before the day was over. She was over fair with her billing - I always felt it was Christmas and she was giving me a present.

— D.C., Leesburg, FL

I was running a company doing over $100 million in sales and I am over 80 years old, so I am in a position to admire super professionalism and great patience tempered with a great degree of empathy. When asked what attorney to use, there is nobody to hold a candle to Ellen Morris, Esq.
