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.”

  • THE BENEFITS OF BLOODLINE TRUSTS
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA What is a Bloodline Trust? A Bloodline Trust is a trust for the benefit of children and/or grandchildren. Rather than leaving the monies outright to children or grandchildren, money is left in a Spendthrift Trust with no withdrawal rights. If the child or grandchild is reliable, they can be appointed trustee of their own trust under the provisions of the New Jersey Trust Code. If a lawsuit or divorce is filed against the child, that child is removed as trustee and a successor trustee replaces that child. Upon termination of the lawsuit or divorce, [...]
  • THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN ABLE ACCOUNTS AND SPECIAL NEEDS TRUSTS
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., Esquire, CELA An ABLE account is an account established for the benefit of an individual with disabilities. While most people point to the fact that the earnings on the ABLE account are tax free as the chief benefit of these accounts, I believe that a much more significant advantage is that the individual with disabilities or a family member can control the money in the account. The purpose of the ABLE Act is to permit people with disabilities to save money in and withdraw funds from their ABLE accounts to pay for disability-related expenses, in [...]
