Information about Lawsuit Settlements

Don’t Lose Your Eligibility for Benefits!

Did you know that receiving a settlement for a personal injury or other lawsuit may disqualify you from receiving Medicaid or Social Security benefits? Unless you are properly advised in addressing this matter, you may be at risk of losing or being ineligible to receive benefits due to a settlement received for a lawsuit. Our lead attorney, Steven Melnik, can talk to you about your options in protecting your settlement. Not only can we discuss your options in helping to ensure that you continue to receive Medicaid or Social Security benefits, but we can also talk about protecting your settlement in the event that you are required to pay for or contribute to long term nursing home or assisted living care. With the right approach, we can help ensure you and your beneficiaries have the best opportunity at a secure future.

You may have won a lawsuit involving a car accident, nursing home abuse, medical malpractice or some other situation that left you with serious injuries. The settlement you received should help you, not prevent you from receiving the Medicaid or other government benefits you were previously receiving. With a lawyer from Melnik Law Group, PLLC to advise you of your rights and options in this matter, you can make the right choices that will protect your financial security and your estate. Our elder law team represents clients in Brooklyn, Manhattan and throughout all of New York City and offer a confidential consultation to discuss your particular financial situation and goals.
