West Palm Beach Understand Long Term Care

Florida Personal Injury Attorneys Working With Victims of Serious Accident – Offices in West Palm Beach and Port St Lucie

West Palm Beach Long Term Care Lawyer

When you have been injured in an accident, the road to recovery may be long. Some injuries require weeks, months, or even years of care. The most severe injuries may require care for the rest of your life. Our long term care lawyer can help you.

When your injuries have been caused by the negligent actions of another, you may be entitled to compensation. In addition to payment for your damaged property and medical bills, such compensation may also include payment to cover your long term care needs.

If you are suffering from an injury requiring long term care, our personal injury lawyers at Fetterman & Associates, P.A. will advocate on your behalf to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

We work in many different Florida communities, including West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie. To learn more about receiving compensation for your injuries and care, send us a message online or call our team at 561-845-2510 today.

Assessing Your Long Term Care Needs

Long term care refers to the range of help you may need to meet your personal care needs while coping with or recovering from an injury. Although long term care may include medical service, most long term care includes assistance with tasks associated with everyday living, such as:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Eating
  • Moving
  • Housework
  • Shopping
  • Preparing meals
  • Taking care of children
  • Caring for pets

The quantity and duration of care you may need after an accident will depend on the nature of your injuries. As you begin to recover, your long term care needs will change. If you are left with a permanent injury, you may have care needs for the rest of your life.

Florida Law Requires Compensation for Your Care

Under Florida law, a person who has caused you injury, through their negligence, is liable to compensate you for the harm they have cause, including compensation for any long-term care you require. Such care may include payment for a nurse, a therapist, a home health aide, or the like.

However, compensation to cover the cost of paid professionals may be insufficient for your needs. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about 80 percent of care at home is given by a family member, partner, friend, or other unpaid person. In Florida, you may receive compensation for these “unpaid” services, too.

Understand that government programs, such as Medicare, will not provide for such non-professional assistance. And although additional funds for your long term support may be available through Medicaid, you may not qualify if your income is above a certain level.

Thank you for the best “first accident case” I’ve ever had… I was referred to Fetterman and Associates by a coworker from a previous job I had. Once my car was totaled out, I contacted them. Not only were they friendly and understanding - they took over the whole process which helped me. I was stressed and panicking about it all and thankfully, I didn’t have to worry as the process began. I had no idea what I was doing or going to do. I am glad I chose them because everything was a breeze for me. They are kind, respectful, responsive and great to work with!

The entire staff in the Fetterman office are available always to help. No matter what time of day I called or left a message I have always received a call back. I was made to feel like one of the family and treated with respect and dignity. The lawsuit was handled quickly, professionally, and with all bases covered. Whenever I had a question or needed help the staff was there to make sure that everything was done accurately. The positive attitude of the entire staff made me comfortable and assured me that all was done accurately.

Looking for a good team they are the way to go… I was referred from a family member to seek advice due to my accident. I was contacted back the same day I called over the weekend. I experienced great service from Fetterman and Associates and my lawyer did an awesome job with closing my case. I appreciate what they went beyond to help my case and was very professional. Thank you Mr Cavataro and Sylvia.
