What is a life care planner?

A life-care planner is an expert who evaluates what type of medications, medical care, and expenses you will incur as a result of your catastrophic injury.  With a devastating injury, a planner can predict whether you will need 24 hour a day nursing care, frequent visits to the doctor's office, possibly future surgery, ongoing medication and medical equipment.

A life-care planner takes into account your current medical condition, looks at your medical records, and determines what type of medical care and medical needs you will have for the forseeable future.  Once this evaluation is completed, we then provide our economist with this report and the economist can then calculate the amount of money needed to provide for all of your medical care needs.  This is used to support our claim for past damages, and also for future damages.
