Future Medical Fees And Your Settlement Claim
Many who have sustained a car accident injury will tell you that the healing timeline isn’t always clearcut. There are situations when injuries are not realized right away or when an injury requires long-term care, including physical therapy fees and regular medical appointments.
Of course, there are set periods of time in which you can file a personal injury claim or lawsuit and you do not want to delay that process. It is possible to have future expenses included in your Florida settlement following a Clearwater, Hudson, Tampa car collision or other accident. You do not have to shoulder the responsibility for future rehabilitation fees when they are connected to a negligent party.
Complex Health Issues and Insurance Claims
Even when a health issue is complicated, there are ways to streamline information. If a projected treatment plan has you perplexed about future expenses, know there are professionals who have a background in assessing and totaling these types of projections. Then, you and your attorney can use that data to show an insurance company and the lawyer of the other party why you need compensation for current and future medical payments. There are professionals who know how to calculate how much medical expenses could cost in future months and years.
Some of the medical fees that will be assessed.
- Future surgeries, treatments, or other procedures that medical professionals say is required.
- Follow-up care appointments, including rehabilitation and physical therapy.
- Medical equipment, such as mobility tools, and other forms of assistance.
- Prescriptions, medications, and other pain management tools.
The reality is the timeline of your healing process may not align with the set time frame you are required to follow when it comes to legal action or insurance claims. Because of this, there are set ways for experts to calculate expenses and produce a number that would equal a full and fair settlement for an injured party.
