Permanent Disability

Receive compensation for losses sustained

At LawMD, nearly every person and family we represent have had their lives forever changed as a result of hospital or corporate negligence. When a medical mistake results in a permanent disability, especially one that requires continuing medical treatment, it is critical to have attorneys who understand not only the negligent event that caused the permanent disability, but also who has a grasp of how healthcare related to the harm will continue after the verdict or settlement resolving the case financially.

This is especially true when it comes to compensating the person and family for the permanent losses associated with the harm caused by the negligence. The Damages in a lawsuit refers to the amount of money to be paid to the person and/or family as compensation for the losses sustained. When done right, the damages should endeavor to replace, improve and/or make up for every single harm and loss that can be proven by the facts in a case. Importantly, these losses should include the future care needs of the patient as well as the cost of the accommodations required to help the patient lead as meaningful and productive a life as possible following an injury that causes a permanent disability.

Experts are often engaged to establish a life-care plan for patients whose injuries require lasting medical care. These plans are often multidisciplinary requiring inputs by physicians who are trained in several medical specialties, which may include physical medicine, neurology, cardiology, psychiatry, general or specialized surgery.  It is advantageous for the attorneys to have had medical training in the specialties that are involved in a fuller comprehension of the areas of medicine that can be implicated in forming and compensating a client’s life-care plan.
