Until the doctors give us your prognosis or prediction about you or your family member’s future disability, we are unable to provide you with specifics about the amount of compensation you can receive.

Not until you reach maximum medical recovery will we know the extent to which residual functional loss will affect your ability to do the things which formerly gave your life rich meaning.
