Dental Life Care Plan
Dental Life Care Planning
I’m Ed Smith. We are Sacramento car accident injury attorneys. Have you been injured a car crash? Have you suffered dental injuries along with other bodily injuries? If so, you may need what is called a Dental Life Care Plan.
Dental Life Care Planning: Another Consideration for Your Personal Injury Case
If you have suffered from dental trauma due to a vehicle accident, a Dental Life Care Plan can be initiated by an experienced personal injury attorney so you will have money set aside for dental costs both now and in the future. If you have missing teeth as a result of a crash, you will probably need, not just one, but two sets of dental implants with surgery in your lifetime (if you are young). Regular dental care and replacement of existing fillings during your lifetime should also be anticipated.
Future Dental Lifetime Costs
It is not uncommon to require up to $250,000 or more for the dental lifetime of your case. While this amount may vary for each person – it is always good to have an attorney on your side that is working with an expert in Dental Life Care Planning. Together they will configure your future dental needs.
Calculating Future Dental Needs in Personal Injury Cases
When an injured party in a personal injury case claims a specific figure as compensation for a future loss or expense, the burden falls on the plaintiff to show that the amount being demanded as compensation is supported by evidence and is a reasonable amount. Calculating your future medical needs involves some measure of estimation. Usually, a reasonable amount can be calculated by looking at and considering:
- The testimony of your dentist, doctor or a medical expert who is familiar with your injuries and has determined what additional procedures or ongoing treatment that you may require;
- The current market costs for each treatment, procedure and/or medicines necessary to manage your medical condition or complete your treatment of recovery;
- Reliable estimates taking into effect things like increases in healthcare costs and inflation to ensure current values can be properly adjusted for the future.
