Expertise of a New Jersey Personal Injury Settlement Consultant Helps an Injured Client and Attorney Malpractice Concerns

Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) March 14, 2012 - Personal injury attorneys excel at upholding their client's rights when the person is seriously injured due to someone else's carelessness and negligence. These types of lawsuits can be very lengthy and complex, all while the injured person is trying to obtain the therapies they need to function in daily life. Instead of taking on all of the care management and specialized estate planning for the injured person, personal injury lawyers can call on a personal injury settlement consultant to address all of the special needs planning and financial considerations for the person's livelihood.

New Jersey personal injury settlement consultant and special needs attorney Thomas D. Begley, Jr.

“Many personal injury attorneys seek our advice to help create a solid financial, medical, and support plan for their client,” said Thomas D. Begley, Jr., a New Jersey personal injury settlement consultant and special needs attorney at Begley Law Group. “It not only helps to have our expertise to coordinate the proceeds of the settlement, but it helps personal injury attorneys know they have a colleague to ensure that every factor has been addressed. This, in turn, lessens malpractice issues as well.”

The best case scenario is to retain a personal injury settlement consultant early on to address all of the important aspects of the injured person's concerns. For each issue, it can take time to draft the appropriate documents, file with relevant government agencies, select a trustee, and obtain the best medical insurance.

“Settling a catastrophic injury case is often just the first action item for the injured person,” said Begley. “You want to make sure that all of the critical supports and services are in place and the assets are preserved so that your client can have the best quality of life.”

Begley Law Group's personal injury settlement consulting services include legal advice regarding:
- Special needs and estate planning
- Medical coverage, public benefits, and care management
- Investment advice and tax planning
- Special needs trust and settlement preservation trusts
- Guardianship
- Probate
- Medicare Set-Aside arrangements
- Structured settlements
- Qualified settlement funds
- Lien resolution

“We have assisted personal injury attorneys in cases involving minors, incapacitated people and many other types of clients throughout our law firm's 75 years of experience,” said Begley. “We have the skills to protect your client's settlement and to safeguard your reputation and hard work for years to come. Without a qualified personal injury settlement consultant, your client could lose essential public benefits and access to critical resources.”

  • Making Special Needs Trusts Last
    By Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA When a personal injury victim receives a settlement, one of the biggest post-settlement problems is making the money last. If the plaintiff is receiving means-tested public benefits, the monies must be put in a Special Needs Trust. How long do the beneficiary and other family members need that money to last? When the size of the settlement is significant, best practices would dictate that a three-step process be followed: Counseling Session.  A counseling session should be held with the person with disabilities, the family members, if appropriate, the trustee, the attorney drafting the Special [...]

    By Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA A Virginia State Bar Association appointed a study committee on the future of the practice of law. Perhaps New Jersey should do the same.
