5. HOW WILL I PAY MY LIVING EXPENSES?

ANSWER: If your injuries prevent you from working and you cannot afford to pay your monthly living expenses, there are several sources of money from your employer along with State and Federal assistance programs that you may be eligible to receive. They include:

Personal Injury Protection (a/k/a PIP) Insurance
Workers Compensation Insurance
Short Term Disability Insurance
Long Term Disability Insurance
Social Security Disability Insurance
Supplemental Security Income
Woman Infants & Children
Temporary Cash Assistance
Food Assistance Program

In addition, there are several companies that will lend you money based upon their estimated value of your case. The interest and fees that are assessed are very high. Accordingly, we typically counsel clients against utilizing these funding sources. However, if your circumstances necessitate borrowing money while your case is pending, we can help you select the right company to work with.
