How to choose a life care planner

For our families, our birth injury attorneys have worked with several Life Care Planners throughout the years and gave us a good recommendation. If you don’t know where to look, here are a few suggestions.

Check Professional Qualifications

Your life care planner should be certified. Generally accepted certifications include:

Check Educational Degrees

Your planner should have a medical background, such as a degree in medicine, nursing or physical therapy.

Check Experience

Preferably, your planner should have experience in dealing with cerebral palsy.

Check References

Your planner should be happy to provide you with references, such as law firms or national disability organizations, where you can obtain information about the quality of their work and their reputation in the field.

Ask About Billing

Your planner should provide you with written documents about how they intend to charge you.
