We help attorneys and insurance providers to calculate accurate future medical costs for their catastrophic and non-catastrophic injury cases.
Calculating accurate future medical costs is critical to your clients and their personal injury or medical malpractice cases. Determining those cost when it comes to catastrophic injury or non-catastrophic injury can be very complex and time-consuming. Some of the things that have to be taken into consideration are assisted living costs, medical visits and treatments, modification of home or vehicle costs, caregiver costs or other home maintenance service costs, special transportation costs, medication costs to name just a few of the costs that possibly could be involved. Overlooking or missing an aspect of your client’s future medical care could mean hundreds of thousands of dollars could be missed.
Recently at a conference, another Life Care Planner spoke about working on Medicare Set-Asides and noticed that the attorney’s calculation for future medical costs undervalued the medical expenses by over $300,000. Not something you would want to hear after you have settled the case.
The next time you have a stack of medical records to review twenty inches high that you requested, subpoenaed or your client provided, give us a call. Reviewing medical records is monotonous, tedious, filled with acronyms, shortcodes and medical jargon making it difficult for the layperson to understand and pick out the important information.
