A Life Care Plan objectively documents the damages and future costs of long term medical care as well as any lost wages.

Plaintiff and Defense attorneys are using Life Care Plans more than ever before, especially when handling cases involving catastrophic injury with permanent damages. Hiring the services of an experienced Life Care Planning Expert can make a huge impact on achieving a greater result on behalf of your client.

When an individual sustains a catastrophic injury and is unable to work or perform their normal activities of daily living, it is paramount to determine the exact financial impact and cost of future medical care. When individuals are injured and require a cane, walker, or wheelchair for mobility or are in chronic pain, a comprehensive Life Care Plan will clearly define the damages and future costs.

Catastrophic impairments such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy cases have a devastating and lasting impact on the injured person and their family.  A Life Care Plan will accurately project the long-term medical care costs in their geographical area over the person’s lifetime.

In addition, Life Care Plans include loss of earnings due to an inability to be employed due to the residuals of the injuries.

Life Care Plans are used in many cases where a catastrophic injury was sustained through Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, Slip and Fall, Premises Liability, Automotive, or Workplace Accidents.
