Loss of Household Services

December 7, 2021

Patients who suffer catastrophic injuries because of medical malpractice are often unable to perform their normal activities of daily living. Many times, these patients can no longer care for themselves by cooking, cleaning, shopping for groceries, mowing the lawn, taking out the garbage, doing the laundry, and performing routine maintenance around their home. Attorneys refer to this as the loss of household services. At Pauley Curry, where the case warrants, we will hire experts to render opinions as to your loss of household services. The experts we retain will explain to the jury the activities that you can no longer perform and will explain to the jury the costs of purchasing these services throughout the remainder of your life.
