How Is The Value Of Long-Term Care, Future Surgeries, And Treatments Calculated If We Don’t Know What The Future Might Look Like For An Injured Person?
We Although the vast majority of cases settle, we prepare every case as though it will go to trial. In my experience, I have found that a willingness and ability to take a case to trial is the best formula for obtaining a fair settlement for our clients.
The costs of future care is always something that must be considered, because no one has a crystal ball. Typically, the determination begins with the treating doctors and their professional opinions with respect to the nature and prognosis of the injury. After that, in cases where there will be considerable ongoing healthcare, we may involve certified life care planners to assess the future costs of care. These experts help us to determine what our client may need in terms of future health care and assistance. These are trained professionals that have education and training in their field. They work with the injured client and their health care providers to assess the future care needs in terms of the type of care, frequency, duration, and cost. In many cases, we also retain an economist or accountant to aid with calculating how much money will be needed to pay all of the future expenses.
In short, in consultation with our clients and other professionals, we will assess and advance claims for both the past and future healthcare expenses. This expert consultation is important to get the maximum compensation in serious injury claims.
