How to Calculate Future Medical Expenses
Our legal team can help you and your family get compensation for future medical bills after a car accident.
Don’t accept quick settlement offers from insurance companies without first discussing your case with an attorney. When an insurance company jumps to offer a settlement, it is most likely because they know that the injuries you have sustained as a result of their client’s negligence are worthy of compensation for future medical care.
Compensation For Future Medical Bills
Personal injury law allows a car accident victim to pursue compensation for all of their tangible economic losses due to the car crash. This will include your medical bills and loss of wages as you recovered from your injuries. It also recognizes that future medical care may be needed and will allow you to be compensated for that as well. Since there is no absolute evidence of the amount that will be, or way to calculate it, we would have to rely on expert medical testimony to help determine what your future medical needs will be and what they will cost.
The need for on-going care after a car accident is very common. Catastrophic crashes can lead to major trauma to a person’s body, including loss of cognitive functions from brain injuries. Spinal injuries and paralysis can also result which will necessitate medical treatment for an undetermined amount of time.
If you were disabled in a car crash talk to an experienced car accident attorney in our firm about your future medical needs. They will gather the evidence needed to make sure that compensation for those needs is included in a settlement.
Factors Involved in Determining Future Medical Bills
Your age, health, and life expectancy will all be taken into consideration when determining the presumed cost of your future medical care. The severity of your disability will also be a factor along with the possible need for around the clock medical care. In addition, our lawyers will look into the cost of pain management, including therapies and medications before fixing an amount to your future medical needs.
Every victim of a car accident responds differently to their injuries and treatments. What our team of lawyers does is gather expert medical testimony that shows how your injuries will require long term care. Like the car accident itself, there are too many variables with an injury to assign a set amount for the compensation of each one. The help of an attorney can prove invaluable in making sure that yours are being considered on their own merit, not on what an insurance company believes should be the cost based on other similar cases.
Your future may have been affected as a result of the car accident, but that does not mean you should have to suffer from it forever. While a monetary compensation for future medical care won’t heal a debilitating injury it will ensure that you are able to live a more comfortable life and continue to be treated for it.
