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.
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.
