Assessing Lifetime Costs

Heavy Costs For Families Of Victims

A catastrophic injury such as a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury is nearly always devastating to the injured person as well as to family members who become caregivers overnight. A serious car accident or workplace injury typically initiates steps of recovery, including:

  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Surgery to stabilize a spine or relieve bleeding to the brain
  • Recovery from surgery
  • Lengthy hospitalization
  • Initiation of appropriate therapies, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and/or speech therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Planning for re-entry into home life

If you are dealing with arrangements for care of yourself or your loved one after a serious accident, you will most likely receive help from professionals such as social workers. You should also work closely with a personal injury lawyer with ample experience helping the seriously injured and their families. At Caesar, Napoli & Spivak PLLC, we work hard to determine the causes of serious accidents and recover compensation for our injured clients.

Preparing For Life After The Hospital

Planning for what happens when the injured person returns home is a large part of a catastrophic personal injury claim. Our attorneys work with health care professionals, life care planners and economists to determine realistic cost estimates that await the accident victim and his or her family, to cover:

  • Ongoing therapy
  • Purchase of durable medical equipment
  • Purchase and maintenance of a van equipped to handle a wheelchair for a paraplegic or quadriplegic accident victim
  • Modification of existing housing, or a move to alternative housing to allow for restrictions and use of equipment such as a wheelchair
