Some statistics suggest that half of all marriages end in divorce. Many of the people we've represented over the years have been, or became, separated or divorced. What happens when one spouse gets injured in an accident, the couple files a lawsuit, then the couple separates before the case is resolved? Who gets the money? When a couple separates or divorces after a personal injury case settles, who does the money belong to? If an individual is catastrophically injured in an accident and his or her spouse files for divorce, can the injuries affect the child custody rights of the injured spouse?
Dan recently teamed up with noted Blue Bell, PA-based family law attorney Lori Shemtob to explore the impact of separation and divorce on individuals involved in personal injury litigation. The answers to the above questions are often surprising, and application of the law does not always lead to outcomes that are expected or "fair." These issues and more were addressed by Dan and Lori in a really interesting roundtable discussion.
