Attorneys for Accident-Related Medical Bills
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you likely never expected it to happen. No one plans to be severely injured in an accident due to someone else’s actions or negligent inaction. The medical treatment you required and may continue to require for your injuries isn’t free. Receiving medical treatment, even for minor injuries, is costly. Figuring out where to get the money to pay for your treatment on top of paying all your regular expenses is stressful.
So after you’ve been injured in an accident, you’re incurring cost after cost while you’re getting the help you need to recover from those injuries. You shouldn’t have to pay those mounting medical bills when you did nothing to cause the injuries. With the help of an experienced St. Louis car accident lawyer from OnderLaw, LLC, you can pursue compensation for all of your medical expenses for your accident-related injuries.
Common Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents can cause various injuries, and those injuries can vary from mild to life-threatening or fatal. Some injuries that are commonly sustained in car accidents include:
- Brain injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Neck injuries, including whiplash
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back injuries
- Vision or hearing loss or impairment
- Organ damage
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken limbs or bones
- Muscle sprains
- Mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
The Burden of Medical Bills for Your Injuries
Whether you have medical insurance, and especially if you do not, the mounting medical bills you face after being injured in a car accident are enough to send you into financial ruin.
After an accident, you may have required emergency medical attention for your injuries. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may even have needed to stay in the hospital for an extended time. Emergency medical costs and in-patient hospital stays cost thousands of dollars and can even go into the hundreds of thousands of dollars (which is especially the case if you needed emergency surgery and/or your doctor prescribed a long hospital stay).
The total medical costs you can incur after a car accident that wasn’t your fault can be high. And you should not have to bear these unexpected costs. You would not have incurred these costs if it were not for the actions of the person who caused the car accident that injured you. Their negligence should not cause you to go into debt.
Compensation for Medical Bills
You may be compensated for the medical costs you’ve incurred through” economic damages.” Economic damages are calculable costs that you’ve had to take on as a result of your injuries from the car accident. Medical costs are the most common expenses that are reimbursed in economic damages. All of the costs associated with the treatment you’ve received for your injuries are included in the calculation of the value of your claim so that you can be reimbursed for them.
Economic damages don’t only cover medical costs for all of the treatment you’ve already received. If you need ongoing medical treatment, therapy, or prescription drugs, you may receive economic damages for those costs, too.
Economic damages may also include your loss of income as a result of your inability to work while you recover from your injuries. They can also include the loss of future income if your injury results in a disability that prevents you from returning to your job or even your usual and customary line of work.
The cost to repair or replace damaged personal property falls under economic damages, as well. This can include your car, laptop, cellphone, leather coat, or any other property that was damaged in the accident.
There are other types of compensation you may be entitled to. An experienced attorney from OnderLaw, LLC can work with you to determine an appropriate value for your claim or lawsuit that adequately compensates you for all your losses, both material and immaterial.
