Personal Injury Lawyer Bill Tapella Answers Legal Questions on CiLiving
WCIA 3's CiLiving “Ask a Lawyer” Segment Features Bill Tapella of Charleston Law Firm, Tapella & Eberspacher
Tapella, whose firm has extensive experience litigating personal injury cases in Illinois, tackled several topics, one of which addressed drafting a will for an individual who has a child with special needs.
“Many times these children are involved in government programs like Medicaid and Medicare that assist with medical bills,” said Tapella. “If those children should come into assets by way of a life insurance policy or a lawsuit… that money could very well disqualify them from the benefits they need,” he said.
Tapella stressed that by drafting a will parents will be able to make informed decisions about the future of their child’s care even after they have passed.
Other topics from the segment included when to sign a power of attorney document with a parent in declining health, and how to handle a case of wrongful termination.
“You have a right under Illinois law to access… your personnel file that an employer would rely upon to make decisions about your employment,” Tapella said. “Know what’s in your file, and know what that employer is using to make their decisions about your employment.”
