How Do I Get My Medical Bills Paid After an Injury?
After you’ve been involved in an accident, figuring out how you’ll pay your mounting stack of medical bills is sure to be at the top of your priority list. Thankfully, you have the opportunity to pursue a civil claim against whoever is responsible for causing the accident you were involved in. Below, we discuss how you’ll get the at-fault party to pay, and what types of medical bills you may be able to recoup.
Obtaining Repayment from the Liable Party
If you haven’t already reached out to a qualified personal injury lawyer in Boston, now is the time to do so. Your attorney will be responsible for gathering the evidence you need to build a powerful case against the person or persons who harmed you, among other things.
Establishing fault is important, as this is the only way the judge and jury will award you the compensation you need to move forward with your life. But, an experienced lawyer can help you gather the documentation and evidence that is needed to determine who is responsible for the accident, and for your injuries.
Obtaining repayment for medical bills requires certain types of evidence. It is also possible that the responsible party, or your own insurance company, will minimize their liability or your damages. This is why it is so important to have a lawyer on your side, fighting for your legal rights, on your behalf.
Healthcare Costs You Can Recover
The good news is that once your lawyer proves fault, you’ll have the opportunity to be awarded maximum compensation for your losses. When it comes to medical expenses, this could include ambulance fees, co-pays, costs of transportation, and prescription medications. You can also get financial recompense for medical equipment, installation fees, costs of diagnostic imaging, and even your costs of physical and occupational rehabilitation.
Your medical costs might also include anticipated costs. Many injuries or conditions can lead to ongoing medical needs, in the near or far future. But, you need a lawyer familiar with the process to calculate an appropriate value of the medical costs you can expect to incur. Our lawyers will work closely with you to ensure that we consider all your incurred costs.
Essentially, any medical cost that was accrued due to the injury you sustained in the accident should be recovered from the liable party. In some cases, you may also be eligible for other types of compensation, including property damages, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, and even pain and suffering. Pain and suffering is an important cost to consider. Some medical conditions, like broken bones, may heal within a few months. Others, however, could prevent you from enjoying the same hobbies that you once did.
