Medical Damages for Catastrophic Injury

Medical Damages for Catastrophic Injury

Expert Medical Witness ServicesDetermining accurate medical damages for your clients after a catastrophic injury is a challenge for attorneys and paralegals.  The future medical costs, medications, medical equipment, therapy, rehabilitation and future care make up a significant part of the damages in personal injury, product liability and medical malpractice cases.  Not only will you need accurate medical damages for your claim but you need to be able to have the correct information to back up those damages.  Getting you accurate and defensible medical damages is our specialty.

Our Physician-led Life Care Services we can offer independent medical opinion related to:

  • an assessment of the cause of your client’s catastrophic injuries
  • projections and descriptions of current and future medical treatment
  • projections for needed testing, therapy services, or counseling
  • an assessment of potential complications that can arise for patients
  • rehabilitation, home, and living accommodations
  • projected life expectancy


Our Traumatic Injury Life Care Plans are created by Dr. Richard S. Kaplan, who specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) and has completed specialty residency training at the Mayo Clinic and served for over a decade as the Medical Director of the Physical Rehabilitation Department of the Uniontown hospital in Uniontown Pennsylvania.  Dr. Kaplan’s specialty in PM&R  makes him an expert in the medical and physical treatment of disabling illness and injury.
