Serious Permanent Injury Q & A

What is a serious permanent injury?

A serious permanent injury is any type of physical or mental damage that affects your ability to engage in your usual activities or work-related tasks for the rest of your life. Long-term disability and/or disfigurement is the result.

Common serious permanent injuries include:

  • Limb loss
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Paralysis (partial or total)

These types of injuries can occur in an accident, negligence, malpractice, or work-related injury. As a result of a serious permanent injury, you may not be able to continue working at your present job or sustain employment at all.

A permanent injury disrupts your personal life and limits the types of physical activity you can perform safely and without pain.

If you suffer a permanent injury, Dr. BiFulco provides comprehensive services, including life care planning to give you, your family, and your attorney a clear understanding of what you’ll need medically and financially to care for your condition. These conditions are often complicated . . . but a life care plan is an important step toward improving the quality of life of the person affected.

Why do I need life care planning for a serious permanent injury?

Incapacitation by a serious permanent injury likely will require long-term medical care, including:

  • Surgeries
  • Assistive devices
  • Medications
  • Specialized therapies
  • Personal home care
  • Physical home modifications

To help you prepare financially, or in support of a personal injury or other legal claim, Dr. BiFulco creates a comprehensive outline of the services you’ll need and their costs. This life care plan is a valuable resource for yourself, your family, and your attorney to ensure you have what you need for your future. He also offers his expertise as a witness for trial if necessary.

What are the benefits of an expert witness?

As an experienced physician, Dr.BiFulco can clearly explain the nature of your injury, and the impact your condition has on your life. He works closely with you and your attorney, providing necessary information about your health.

Dr. BiFulco also creates vocational evaluations and loss of earning reports to show how your injury affects your ability to earn a living in support of your legal claims. He calculates the amount of expected lost wages as the result of your specific type of injury.
