In the event of an accident, there is always the possibility of severe injuries that can occur to a victim. If the injuries are severe enough, then there is always the possibility of long term care. We all know that the cost of long term care is incredibly expensive and isn’t fully covered by most health plans. In the event you or a loved one or significant other is harmed in any type of accident and requires long term care, you may be able to seek legal representation for a proper settlement.
Understanding Long Term Care Needs After An Accident
Understanding long term care can be difficult. Not only is it emotionally difficult for individuals and families to deal with, it also can be difficult legally. However, having experienced, skilled, and legal expertise with Fetterman and Associates on your side can help get individuals and families what they need. Fetterman and Associates has over forty years of experience in dealing with the legal repercussions of long term care in the state of Florida.
If either you or a loved one or family member has been recently injured in an accident, particularly due to the negligence of a third party, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention and then later assess your long term care needs. This is helpful not only in the perspective of having sufficient evidence for later legal representation and expertise, but also to fully understand long term care practices.
Long term care refers to the help, care or assistance that is needed after a severe injury that may prohibit you or a family member from returning to work or disrupt his or her daily life. Long term care can also refer to the personal care needs an individual may require while coping with or recovering from a major or severe injury. Although long term care can include medical service such as a hospice, most long term care includes assistance with tasks associated with everyday living, such as:
- Preparing meals
- Taking care of children
- Caring for pets

Depending on the severity of the injury and how it has impacted an individual’s life, long term care may change as time goes on. It could refer to assistance needed during the recovering of an injury, assisting with physical therapy or relearning daily tasks and activities, or if the injury is severe enough or permanent, an individual may need long term care for the rest of his or her life. This is another reason why assessing long term care needs as early on in the legal process is important to acquiring an overall settlement.
