Dealing With the Financial Implications of Unexpected Accident Injuries
At minimum, experiencing a car accident is a stressful event that over 395,000 people have to deal with every single year here in the Sunshine State. And unfortunately, many of these accidents lead to injuries. While some personal injuries are immediately visibly serious, others result in what may simply feel like a little soreness at first but then evolve into what can become a chronic or even permanent injury. As injuries progressively worsen, these unexpected accident consequences can wreak havoc on your life in multiple ways, including financially. The good news is that you may be entitled to compensation for accumulating medical bills and other expenses related to unexpected injuries through a personal injury claim.
What Kinds of Expenses Can I Pursue Compensation For?
Depending on the circumstances of your injuries, you may be able to pursue compensation for expenses related to a variety of unexpected injuries. Because Florida is a no-fault insurance state, you may even be able to pursue a claim if you were the only person involved in your accident. Compensation may be awarded for:
- Emergency medical care
- Costs of prescription medicines
- Hospital bills
- Laboratory fees
- Surgery costs
- Therapy and rehab
- Wages due to lost time from work
- Pain and suffering
How Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help?
Obtaining the help of the right personal injury attorney will afford you the assistance of someone who has the experience to help you successfully proceed on your road to recovery. Your attorney is there as an advocate for any financial concerns you likely have due to your injuries. Additionally, your attorney can help you get the medical care you need and may even be able to refer you to a doctor or specialist who is familiar with the injuries you are dealing with. Your attorney plays many important roles such as:
- Helping you ensure that your injuries and medical expenses are thoroughly documented
- Making sure you don’t end treatment too soon so that your damages account for all future problems
