Disadvantages of Skipping a Life Care Plan
In the case of a serious permanent and catastrophic injury or illness or other life-altering injuries, at some point, you will be considering all of the options available to you (regardless of whether you are the injured individual, a family member, a plaintiff or defense attorney).
If litigation is happening or is on the horizon, life care planning has probably been mentioned to you as a potential asset.
Life care planning is a vital part of long-term care and treatment and has been since the 1970’s when it emerged as a preeminent case management tool. As time went on, it became clear that a well-written Life Care Plan (drafted by an experienced and well-trained medical doctor) can be a “single source of truth” for all interested parties. Dr. BiFulco is one of the leading professionals in the field.
Time and time again, we have seen clients benefit from his passion, caring, and expertise. Dr. BiFulco is not shy about passionately caring for those he treats in the exam room and then discussing or testifying his findings in the courtroom. He was taught early on in his career as a trauma physician that any physician who practices in the field of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation must be able to answer the call of responsibility both in the exam room and in the courtroom.
There are folks who do not take advantage of this crucial service. Particularly, there are plaintiff and defense attorneys who choose not to engage a Medical Doctor/Life Care Planner. There are some major disadvantages to not using a Life Care Plan, and this article will dive into three reasons why, without a life care plan, long-term care will be more difficult.
Other Options May Not Be Dynamic
With other long-term care options, it’s easy to get a plan that includes certain aspects up to a certain time. This is certainly helpful, but only a life care plan is just that—a plan for life, meaning the entire statistical life expectancy of an individual.
