Life Care Plan Review
A Life Care Plan Review is requested when the opposing counsel has completed a Life Care Plan in a litigated case. Attorneys and insurance carriers request a Life Care Plan Review to assess the medical value of a case. Opposing Life Care Plans may be under- or over-estimated when determining future needs and costs. There may be errors in calculation. Opposing Life Care Plans may leave out essential future needs or exclude probable complications/secondary diagnosis related to the injury/illness. A Life Care Plan Review is then appropriate in assisting the attorneys and insurance carriers in preparation for the settlement or trial process. Also, the Nurse Life Care Planner may be requested to discuss the Life Care Plan Review in court trial and be designated as an expert witness.
