Upon incurring bodily injuries in your personal injury accident, you may find a long road to recovery ahead of you. With this, you may think that you know your body, and thereby that you can make an accurate prediction of when you may fully recover. However, the truth of the matter is that your body has likely never been through such a drastic physical toll as it endured in your accident. For this reason alone, you may need to call on an expert opinion(s) to determine the magnitude of your long-term treatment plan. Continue reading to learn what kind of long-term care you might need to seek after your accident and how an experienced Ontario personal injury lawyer at Merricks Law Group, P.A. can help you calculate its extent.

What kind of long-term care might I need after a personal injury accident?

The kind of long-term care plan your doctor prescribes to you may be heavily dependent on the kind of bodily injuries you incurred in your personal injury accident. What’s more, it may depend on their level of severity, along with your medical history and other relevant factors. Nonetheless, the types of treatment plans that are generally followed by accident victims are as follows:

  • Long-term plans for surgeries.
  • Long-term use of prescription medications.
  • Long-term use of home healthcare services.
  • Long-term stays at assisted living facilities or nursing homes.
  • Long-term attendance at specialized rehabilitative centers (i.e., for physical and occupational therapies).
  • Long-term visits with mental healthcare professionals (i.e., for mental anguish and emotional suffering).

What can I do to determine the extent of my long-term care plan?

To reiterate, it is not wise to simply guess when you may reach a full recovery. Rather, it may be of more benefit to turn to expert opinions to weigh in on the expected extent of your long-term care plan.

Specifically, you may ask your primary care physician to supply a doctor’s note that touches on the severity of your bodily injuries. Then, you may also ask your medical specialists to testify on the kind of long-term care plan they have recommended to you. Lastly, you may ask your employer to provide a statement on how your recommended long-term care plan may hinder your ability to work. Similarly, you may ask your loved ones to provide a statement on how your recommended long-term care plan may restrict you from carrying out the life you once enjoyed.

Therefore, these notes, testimonies, and statements may all serve as pivotal pieces of proof in your personal injury claim. All the while, they may allow you to better calculate the amount of financial compensation to petition the court to order the defendant to.
