Can I Get Money for My Injury If I’m Homeless?

Yes. If you’re homeless, you’re entitled to get money from a personal injury case when you’re injured because of someone’s negligence. You may be able to get money immediately and your personal injury case could be worth $millions, even if you’re homeless, and YOU DON”T NEED MONEY TO HIRE US!

Do Personal Injury Lawyers Represent People Who Are Homeless?

Some personal injury lawyers may not be interested in your case if you’re homeless because of difficulties staying in contact. But we have obtained a lot of money for homeless clients.

One of my first personal injury clients was homeless. She was hit by a car in a pedestrian accident. It was because she was homeless that I got the phone number 1-800-HURT-911, so she could call me toll-free. I got her a lot of money that she was able to use to rent an apartment in New York City.

How Can I Get Money Right Now If I Am Homeless?

You may be able to get money right now if you were injured in an accident. The money is an advance of your personal injury settlement money. Just give us a call and we will let you know how quickly, we can get money for you.

If you want your case to move quickly because you’re homeless, we’re good at settling quickly!

If I Am Homeless, Can I Get Money for an Accident and Keep My Government Benefits?

Yes. If you receive public benefits, like Medicaid, Snap Food Stamps, or Housing, we can protect your public benefits so you can receive both your settlement money and your public benefits.

Your settlement money from your personal injury case can be deposited into a Special Needs Trust with a credit or debit card you can use to pay for things you want. Another type of trust is a Pooled Trust that you can use to pay for things you want.

If I Am Homeless, How Do I Pay for Medical Bills After a Car Accident?

If you were hit by a car, the car’s No-Fault insurance company will pay for all of your medical treatment even though you were a pedestrian, homeless, and don’t have insurance. The car’s No-Fault insurance will also pay for your transportation to doctors.

If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident by a car that left the accident scene or a car that did not have insurance, you will have No-Fault insurance from MVIAC a New York State agency.

If I Am Homeless, How Do I Pay for Medical Bills After an Accident?

If you were injured in another type of accident, like a slip and fall accident or a trip and fall accident, and need medical treatment but don’t have health insurance or Medicaid, we can get you on Medicaid retroactively. We can also obtain medical treatment for you without Medicaid. If you have Medicaid and have difficulty finding doctors that accept Medicaid, we can find good doctors who accept Medicaid.

If you need transportation, we can arrange transportation for you.

Some Accident and Personal Injury Settlements We Obtained for People Who Were Homeless

I settled a case in three months and obtained the entire insurance policy for a homeless woman in New York City who was hit by a car. This was in addition to getting her hospital and medical bills paid.

We obtained the entire $50,000 insurance policy within a few months for another homeless woman on Long Island whose foot was run over by a car. This was in addition to getting her hospital and medical bills paid.

We settled a case for $40,000 for a homeless man who was struck by a taxi in the Bronx. We could have gotten more but he needed the money and wanted to settle quickly. This was in addition to getting her hospital and medical bills paid.

We settled a case in three weeks for $25,000 for a homeless woman who was struck by a car on Long Island. This was in addition to getting her hospital and medical bills paid.
