1. First, you will want to download the MAV Claim Form and apply for assistance to keep you going until your insurance claim and any legal action you have going on is finished. We can help with emergency relief to do things like keep food on the table for your kids, pay utility bills so your family won’t lose your heat if it’s cold out, or keeping the lights on, or generally whatever it is that you need during that period right after an accident… When you can’t work and are trying to recover. Claim_Form2016.
We also can direct you to a support group for those with Disabilities Due To Injury.JAY HAWTHORN hosts the group on Wednesdays from 10:30 am – 12:30 at the WELL coffehouse, located at 6949 Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, DE.

Email us through our contact us page with your email and phone number and we will forward it to Jay so he can get in touch with you if you need more info.
