Victims of car accidents, with serious injuries, can require a significant amount of medical attention. As we all know, medical care does not come cheap, and it can be scary to see your final bill after having a surgery or other prolonged medical services provided. It can also be frustrating to receive bills for services needed due to the negligence of another person. But, that is exactly what can happen when you are in a car wreck and are not at fault. However, you are entitled to compensation for these costs and when handled properly you may never even receive the bill.
The way a car wreck matter works is that after you have been hurt, you should make a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. In order to have your bills paid in full, you need to make sure all the statements are provided, and that you are finished receiving treatment. The process is best handled by a personal injury attorney with experience negotiating settlement, and who will seek the following on your behalf:
- Payment of all of your medical bills.
- Reimbursement for lost wages.
- An amount to cover any emotional damage or trauma you have suffered.
- Compensation for any change in the quality of your life, and for any future and ongoing medical needs.
- The costs of physical therapy and prescription medications.
You have six years from the date of the accident to file your case, but you can make a claim for repayment with the insurance company well before that deadline. Our approach is to help you get the medical care you need, and to present your case to the insurance adjuster. We make aggressive arguments on your behalf, and fight for a full and fair compensation for your injuries. If the insurance company is unwilling to respond with a reasonable range of compensation, we make sure to move your matter to the next phase by filing a lawsuit prior to the expiration of the statute of limitations.
