According to the International Academy of Life Care Planners, “the life care plan is a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis, and research, which provides an organized, concise plan for current and future needs with associated cost for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health care needs.
In a lawsuit, a life care plan is an extremely valuable tool when advocating and planning for an individual who has been injured. The purpose of a life care plan is to help establish and/or quantify medical damages from an injury or sickness resulting from the negligence of a health care provider. A life care plan projects these medical damages/costs over the life of the injured individual, among these costs are:
- individual’s particular needs in accordance with accepted professional standards of care;
- current and future medical and custodial care needs;
- frequency and duration of treatment;
- medical evaluations;
- diagnostic tests;
- durable medical equipment;
- prescription medications;
- home health care;
- custodial care;
- home modifications;
- automobile modifications or specialized vehicles; and transportation.
