Virginia Head Injury Lawyer: The Approach of a Life Care Planner

This month we have been talking about life care plans and life care planners – why they are important to your future health, why they are important to your Virginia head injury lawsuit, and how they can help you prepare for a fulfilling life even with a disability or ongoing medical needs.

Today, we’ll take a look at exactly how life care planners approach a case and the methodology they use to form a life care plan:
  • They review an accident victim’s medical records and medical history
  • They interview the injury victim if possible regarding medical needs and daily needs
  • They interview loved ones, caregivers, or family members to collect information about medical needs, as well as information about the patient’s pre-accident life
  • They discuss the patient’s accident and disabilities with members of the patient’s medical team, including doctors and therapists
  • They research the possible future medical and day-to-day needs of the patient, including recommended and potential needs
  • They develop a life care plan that takes all of the above information into account and considers the patient’s likely future needs, from medical treatments, to therapies, to home and transportation accessories
