Life Care Planning Q & A

What is life care planning?

A life care plan is a vital resource if you have a serious illness or have suffered a permanent, catastrophic injury. As an experienced physical medicine physician, Dr. BiFulco offers comprehensive evaluations of your injury and the long-term care you need to maintain the highest quality of life possible.

Dr. BiFulco assesses the type of medical care you’ll need for the long term, such as medication, therapy, and surgeries, based on your injury or illness. He also compiles up-to-date financial information about the anticipated cost of these life care services attuned to your geographic place of residence.

Why do I need a life care plan?

A life care plan is essential for anyone who suffers a traumatic or catastrophic injury. This customized plan is a vital step you and your loved ones need to take for your consistent medical care.

You may also need a life care plan if you plan to file a lawsuit or insurance claim when your injury is the result of a personal injury, work injury, auto accident, or if your child sustained an injury during birth or due to medical malpractice.

As a skilled physician, Dr. BiFulco creates an accurate overview of your medical status and expectations for the future to support your case. He also offers expert witness services where he presents his findings on your behalf and works closely with your attorney to ensure you have what you need for your trial.

When your injury leaves you unable to work and earn a living, Dr. BiFulco can also provide a vocational evaluation and loss of earnings assessment.

What is a vocational evaluation?

A vocational evaluation is a professional, medically backed analysis of the effect a traumatic or catastrophic injury has on your ability to earn money now and in the future.

Dr. BiFulco also creates a loss of earnings assessment, which calculates your economic losses over the course of your lifetime due to a permanent injury or disability. This information offers crucial support for litigation.
