Litigation Settlement Planning

Settling a case these days can raise a number of disability and elder law issues. For example:
Is the plaintiff?

  • disabled
  • a minor
  • over age 65
  • currently on Medicaid or SSI
  • under guardianship
  • now (or soon to be) in a nursing home
  • unable to handle large sums of money?

Is there a government benefits lien to resolve, or a Medicare set-aside issue to address?
