Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.

JD 1992 :

There is no way to advise you as to the value of this claim through this type of forum because we don't, and can't, have the ability to analyze all of your records and the expenses incurred.

JD 1992 :

However, what attorneys do when they are trying to determine the value of a particular item such as the present value of a lifetime medical benefit is they hire an economist to prepare a report on this item.

JD 1992 :

While the economist will charge you to prepare the calculation it is a worthwhile investment since spending a little can save you a lot.
