Catastrophic Injury Q & A

What is a catastrophic injury?

A catastrophic injury is any physical injury that permanently prevents you from performing work or engaging in your usual activities. A catastrophic injury is one that leaves you with a long-term disability, such as:

  • Limb loss
  • Serious burn
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic brain injury

Many catastrophic injuries interfere with your ability to walk, think clearly, or function normally. Because of the extent of your injury and disability, you likely will need consistent care for a lifetime.

If your catastrophic injury was the result of a work-related accident, a personal injury, or other event, you may wish to file an insurance claim or pursue legal action in court. Dr. BiFulco offers comprehensive services and support on your behalf to ensure you get the care you need.

What services are available for catastrophic injury?

As an experienced physical medicine physician, Dr. BiFulco can evaluate the severity of your condition and anticipate the level of care you’ll need throughout your lifetime. He works closely with you and your attorney to ensure you have all of the relevant information for court.

In addition to a physical assessment of your injury, Dr.BiFulco can evaluate the impact your injury has on your ability to work and the loss of income potential from your disability.

You can also request a life care plan based on your individual situation.

Why should I consider a life care plan?

A physician-authored life care plan evaluates your long-term medical needs due to your catastrophic injury, chronic pain, and disability. This information is valuable to your personal planning needs for continued medical care, including medical assistive devices, surgeries, and home care.

A life care plan isn’t only important for you as a victim of an injury, but also for your loved ones. A life care plan outlines the financial responsibility and necessary medical services needed to help you sustain a high quality of life.

If you plan to pursue an insurance claim or lawsuit, a life care plan provides you and your attorney with the vital information needed for your case.

If you or your client sustained a catastrophic injury and needs an expert physician witness, schedule a consultation at BiFulco Medical Group today by calling the office or using the online booking feature.
