Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries – Life After an Award or Settlement
Especially if a young child is involved, taking steps to set aside any money gained from a settlement or award is important. At Shepard, Plunkett & Hamilton, LLP, our estate planning attorneys can explain how a special needs trust or structured settlement can help you provide for current and future needs of someone suffering from traumatic brain injury or paraplegia.
In many cases, proceeds from a personal injury settlement can be set aside in a trust that is exempt from certain kinds of taxes and Medicaid eligibility calculations. As a result, establishing a trust can help an injury victim qualify for Medicaid without spending down their assets or forcing them to become impoverished.
