An injury can make otherwise simple everyday activities difficult to perform; compounded with medical bills, an ailment can become a large burden. If your injury was caused by someone else, then you may be entitled to compensation. Here’s how a personal injury settlement can help with medical bills:
- Transportation via Ambulance
Though an ambulance may save your life in an emergency situation, this service can leave you with a bill of $1,000 or more if you don’t have insurance. If your need for an ambulance arises from another’s negligence or aggression, however, its cost can be included in your personal injury settlement.
- Hospital Stay
Without insurance, a single night in the hospital can cost $1,000 or more. If you’re in the hospital for an extended period of time and require special procedures, then you may incur a medical bill in the tens of thousands of dollars. Luckily, a personal injury settlement can reimburse your expenses.
- Treatment Costs
In addition to hospital costs, your injury could require multiple medical appointments across months. Tests, X-rays, prescription drugs—modern medical treatment is astounding, but expensive. If your injuries are a result of another’s recklessness, then you shouldn’t have to foot the bill.
- Ongoing Care
If your injury is especially severe, then you may be unable to fully recover your previous health. You may require a wheelchair or close care that can cost untold thousands of dollars. Once you consult a skilled attorney, you may be able to receive a substantial settlement that will cover all present and future medical expenses.
