Will I Be Compensated For My Medical Bills In An Injury Claim?    

Medical-Bills-300x200Injured accident victims often wonder if they will receive compensation for their hospital bills and other medical expenses. In personal injury lawsuits involving slips and falls, dog bites, or even food poisonings, tortfeasors are supposed to pay the victims. However, consulting with a highly experienced personal injury attorney is extremely important. Obtaining the right legal advice and proper guidance can make a huge difference in receiving enough compensation to cover your medical bills.  

Who Is Responsible For Paying Car Accident-Related Medical Expenses?

Suppose that you, or someone close to you, have been injured in a Buffalo, New York car accident. Regardless of who was responsible, your auto insurance company will pay your medical bills. As such, both drivers and their passengers must file claims against the no-fault insurance coverage of the vehicle that they were in. Personal injury protection coverage is intended to pay accident victims for their hospital bills and other economic damages. The minimum no-fault insurance coverage will pay up to $50,000 for medical costs, lost earnings, and certain other expenses. In severe collisions involving catastrophic injuries or fatalities, victims may be eligible to pursue additional damages against the liable driver.

Medical Costs After An Accident On Someone Else’s Property 

Correctly identifying the responsible defendant is crucial in premises liability cases, such as building collapses and supermarket accidents. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s expert team will build a strong case to prove liability and recover damages. Typically, the property owner or the party that was negligent in maintaining their property will be held responsible for paying your medical bills. Commercial liability insurance and property owner’s liability insurance policies often include specific coverage for medical payments. The medical payment provisions of these policies usually provide payments to victims for related hospital bills. 

When Your Injuries And Other Damages Exceed Insurance Coverage

Although in many cases, you might obtain compensation from the tortfeasor’s insurance policy, it may not be enough. Frequently, victims of serious accidents face further damages and significantly higher medical expenses than what the insurance policies will cover. When this occurs, a victim can pursue a personal injury claim against the individual, business, or government entity whose carelessness or negligence led to the accident. The available legal processes and available compensation are different for each type of case. Depending on the severity of your injuries, compensation for medical expenses may include hospital bills, prescription medications, medical devices, physical therapy, surgeries, and all anticipated future medical costs. Working with a trustworthy attorney will help maximize your potential financial award regardless of your situation.
