Helping You Rebuild Your Life
In cases involving catastrophic injuries, we work with a life-care planner. This medical professional will conduct a thorough review of the injured person’s medical, rehabilitation and personal needs to develop a personalized life-care plan. This will specify in detail the care and services the injured person will need for the remainder of his or her life.
In your case, the plan could include:
- The cost of reparative and cosmetic surgery
- The cost of care in an assisted living facility, long-term care facility or in your home
- The cost of medications, wheelchairs, medical devices, psychological counseling, alterations to your home, and other products and services that can make the injured person’s life easier
- Other types of care and services
Applebaum & Associates will then seek the financial resources that can pay for those items, as well as compensation for all other losses, including lost income and pain and suffering.
