Meet Your Medical Needs
If you don’t know the medical care you’re going to need, you should find out soon.
Your lawyer will probably hire professionals to create a “Life Care Plan” that predicts your future needs and expenses. Without this, you can’t know how much money you’ll need in the settlement to cover things that insurance won’t.
Planning ahead may lead you to demand more money, to reduce taxes by delaying when you receive your money, or to place money in a “Special Needs Trust.”
We’ll help you understand your choices so that you can make an informed decision.
Here are some questions you should be asking:
How do I predict my future medical needs?
How much should I budget for them?
Will my insurance or Medicare cover some of the cost?
Will I get a tax deduction for my medical expenses?
What other expenses will I have because of my injury?
What expenses am I not thinking of?
Must I make investment decisions before settlement?
Must I agree to medical restrictions on my money?
How do I find the right medical provider?
Should I buy special types of insurance?
Who should I rely on for financial and medical advice?
