The Importance of Life Care Planning

If you have been seriously injured by another person’s negligence, the attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, will aggressively pursue financial compensation for the full extent of the damages you have suffered. But how do we quantify those damages? How do you put a number on the lifetime costs of a permanent disability like a brain or spinal cord injury? How will you know if the verdict or settlement is enough to cover your future needs?

Anticipating Needs

That is where life care planning comes in. Our law firm sometimes works with certified life care planning specialists to assess your current and future needs for medical treatment, from office visits to surgeries to prescription medications. That life care plan will project your need for rehabilitation therapies, including speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy and vocational rehabilitation.

Life care planners factor in the need for assistive technologies, and adaptive and prosthetic devices. The costs of transportation, modifications to your home to make it accessible and nursing home care may all be part of the calculation.

Documenting Costs

In cases where a life care plan is appropriate, once the life care plan is complete, we work with economists to project the lifetime costs of those needs. We consider all costs related to your injury, including pain and suffering, wage loss and loss of future earning potential.

Pursuing Compensation for Damages

We aggressively pursue maximum compensation for the full extent of your damages so that you won’t have to worry about how you will pay for your medical bills and other expenses related to the injury.
