Strong Advocacy For Seriously Injured Senior Citizens
Senior citizens are the most at risk for suffering a catastrophic injury during an accident. These events can create serious medical complications. This can lead to emotional suffering and large health care bills. It is important to know you have rights during this difficult time, and an experienced attorney can help protect them.

Impact On Supplemental Security Income And Medicare
Accidents involving seniors create additional complications for some benefits they receive. While disability and retirement benefits are generally unaffected, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may be reduced. A settlement from a personal injury lawsuit is an asset. This ultimately can affect SSI eligibility.
Medicare may impose a lien on seniors enrolled in the program. If you receive a Medicare lien, you may need to pay back any medical care that Medicare paid for.
These are important facts that you must consider before accepting a settlement. Our attorney Roy K. Lisko has the knowledge and experience needed to all aspects of these claims. He understands how to structure these settlements in a manner that adequately compensates you and better protects your long-term financial interests.
