With older clients, there are a number of issues which an experienced law firm understands have to be considered for the benefit of these clients. Injuries to senior citizens are often complicated by conditions of older age or earlier injuries that make it more difficult to attribute what specific injury occurred in the accident, or how to prove that a pre-existing condition was made worse by the accident. Moreover, an attorney must know how to use laws that are intended to benefit seniors who have been injured in a manner that will strategically benefit the client's case in court. Even the timing of when to file suit in the case of a senior citizen can have important consequences.
At Meisel & Krentsa, it has been our privilege to represent a great many senior citizen clients, some almost 100 years of age. We understand the importance that senior citizens continue to receive their benefits, such as Medicare, Medi-Cal, and social security, and to maintain their independence and mobility as much as possible. We strive to create and implement a case plan that takes all these factors into consideration such that our clients can gave a favorable outcome of their case.
