Compensable Damages Related to Medical Expenses

Blount Law Firm PLLC Jan. 10, 2019

Most people can’t afford to pay for medical care without the assistance of a good insurance policy to pay for the lion’s share of the costs. This can be a serious problem for anyone who isn’t lucky enough to have medical insurance – and that’s why the successful pursuit of a personal injury claim after an injurious car accident is particularly important for the uninsured.

If you suffered injuries in a car accident caused by another party’s negligence or wrongful behavior, and if you required expensive medical care, you could be in for a rude awakening – and several lifetimes worth of bills – after the hospital gives you its invoice. That being said, by pursuing a personal injury claim, you might be able to get the money you need.

Here’s a list of the medical expenses for which you might be able to pursue compensation:

  • Cognitive therapy after a serious brain injury

  • Ambulance fees after needing emergency medical transport

  • Consultation fees after visiting different health care practitioners

  • Accessories required for injuries like heat pads, neck braces, boots and crutches

  • In-home medical services fees

  • Hospital costs

  • Fees for rehabilitative therapy

  • Estimated future medical expenses

The cost of medical care in the United States is astronomical and unaffordable, but that doesn’t mean people should have to go without the medical care they need to heal from a serious injury. Especially if you were hurt in a car accident or any other accident due to no fault of your own, make sure to consider all the options at your disposal to hold that party financially accountable for the damages he or she caused.
