Life Care Planning and Cost Projections
Life Care Planning
Each plan includes collaboration of the injured party, family and physicians, providing the most accurate information as possible for reasonably and medically necessary future care through life expectancy. Each plan is personal and unique to the specific injuries of the individual.
Injuries that may require a life care plan include:
Spinal cord injuries
Brain injuries (both traumatic and acquired)
Birth-related injuries (Cerebral palsy and brachial plexus injuries)
National foodborne illness (listeria. e-coli and salmonella),
Gentamicin toxicity-vestibular injuries
Post-traumatic stress disorder
Some types of Cancer
Correctional Facility Trauma
Surgical related injuries
