Life Care Planning in Traumatic Injury Lawsuits

It is one thing to calculate the losses suffered by a person who has survived a major, traumatic accident: lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, etc. But what about the additional financial burdens this person will carry as a result of the accident? How do you calculate those?

These experts are critically important in catastrophic injury cases. At the Law Offices of Mallon & Tranger, we hope you and your family never need our personal injury lawsuit services.

The Life Care Plan is a central document in a personal injury lawsuit to achieve fair compensation for a plaintiff with a major catastrophic injury. A certified life care planner interviews the plaintiff and his or her family, reviews medical records, interviews doctors and rehabilitation specialists, and then constructs the life care plan using information from those resources as well as the life care planners own professional expertise.

The life care plan contains the following information:

  • The special medical care, assistive devices, and supportive services the person will need throughout his or her life as a result of the injuries
  • The cost of each of these necessary items, along with timelines, start dates and phase-out dates for each resource

Common items in a life care plan include:

  • Home renovations to accommodate a wheelchair
  • Purchase of a specially adapted vehicle
  • Specialized nursing care
  • Home services such as housecleaning if the plaintiff is unable to perform these chores
  • Medical care, prescriptions, therapeutic treatments, etc.
  • Future diagnostic testing
