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.

Common serious permanent injuries include:

  • Limb loss
  • Disfigurement
  • Organ damage

These types of injuries can occur from 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.

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

Being incapacitated by a serious permanent injury likely will require long-term medical care, including services such as:

  • Surgeries
  • Assistive devices
  • Medication therapy
  • Personal home care

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.
