When you are injured in an accident, the medical bills that follow can seem crippling. It is important to remember that if your injuries were caused by the negligent or reckless behavior of another, you are entitled to compensation for the medical bills that have accumulated.
Am I At Risk of Not Getting the Medical Treatment I Need?
In Texas, when dealing with injuries resulting from an accident, it is not unusual for healthcare providers in a community to provide that healthcare based on the future of your case. With that, healthcare providers and even specialists will provide the treatment you need and provide the bills for those procedures to you so you can apply those bills towards your litigation.
When consulting with your attorney, do not be afraid to address any financial concerns you may have. Your attorney is there to help you on your road to recovery, both financial and physical. They can help you get the medical care you need and may be able to refer you to a doctor or specialist who is familiar with the injuries you sustained.
What Kinds of Medical Bills Can I Recover?
Any medical expenses associated with the diagnosis and treatment of your injuries can be sought as part of your personal injury claim as well as expenses related to your long-term recovery and any physical therapy that is needed.
Some typical examples of this include:
- Hospital bills
- Laboratory fees
- Surgery costs
- Therapy and rehabilitation expenses
- Costs of prescription medicines
- Pain and suffering management
It is essential that you attend all medical appointments and therapy sessions as failure to attend these appointments may result in the defense challenging the validity of your injuries, possible lowering the damages awarded.
How Do I Prove My Medical Expenses?
Medical bills are complicated and proving your expenses will often require the help of medical experts and legal professionals. This is why it is so important that you seek the help of an experienced personal injury attorney.
Your attorney will make sure you injuries and medical expenses are thoroughly documented and that your damages are calculated and account for all future problems before submitting a request for compensation.
Your attorney will also consult with industry experts, both in the medical field and investigative field, to prove that your injuries are in fact the result of your accident.
Among the experts who may be hired for your personal injury case are:
- Medical Doctors and Physicians
- Biomechanical Engineers
- Forensic Experts
- Accident re-constructionists
- Health care administrators
- Wound care specialists
- Reconstructive surgeons
