Why Use a Life Care Plan?

Why Use a Life Care Plan

Occupational Assessment Services, Inc. (OAS) has recently published an informative video detailing how and why attorneys who represent clients with serious physical injuries may choose a life care plan for their clients.

 

 

Examples of such injuries include:

  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Birth Trauma
  • Brain Damage
  • Head Trauma
  • Cognitive Limitations
  • Physical Disability

Many attorneys will often ask why they should use a life care plan for their clients who have sustained major physical injuries. To correctly answer this question, we should first ask: “What are the consequences of multi-faceted catastrophic injuries on the client’s ability to function?” To determine this, we must examine several factors:

  • Cost to prepare for employment
  • Cost of medical care & therapy
  • Cost for home renovation
  • Cost of nursing services

Placing Value on an Injury Case

How will these injuries affect the person’s educational and personal development? What effect will these injuries have on the client’s rehabilitation, employability, and earning capacity? The answers to these vital questions will help you value your case appropriately—and accurately educate a jury regarding the client’s lifetime care needs.
