How Can I Recover Medical Expenses After An Accident?

If you have been hurt in an accident, you are probably faced with a wide range of serious questions. How serious are my injuries? How long until I can go back to work? How will I pay for my medical bills?

The financial impact of a serious accident can be a devastating blow to a person who has already suffered enough. If you have been harmed due to another party's negligence, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke will help you recover compensation for the medical costs you have incurred. To learn more, contact us online or call 203-864-4427.

Recovering Medical Expenses After An Accident

One of our goals is to ensure that you receive the medical attention you need to build a complete understanding of your injuries and make the best possible recovery. We can connect you with skilled medical professionals who can make an effective diagnosis and put you on the road to recovery.

An appropriate diagnosis is key to any personal injury case. It is important that we understand both how your injuries affect you now and how they are likely to impact your life in the future. Your attorney will use this information to push for compensation for your past and future losses.

In the weeks and months following your injury, it is imperative that you follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Failure to actively pursue your own recovery can weaken your legal position, making it more difficult to recover fair compensation for your medical expenses.

Once you have reached the point of maximum medical recovery — the point at which your condition will no longer improve — our attorneys will move forward with legal action against the negligent parties who caused your injuries. As your law firm, we will work diligently to ensure you receive the maximum possible compensation for your losses.

Recoverable Medical Expenses

Accident victims must often face a number of costly expenses after suffering an injury. Fortunately, you can recover most of these losses by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

  • Medical bills: Medical expenses can be wide-ranging, including consultations with doctors, ambulance fees, medication expenses, surgical costs and the expenses associated with physical or cognitive therapy sessions.
  • Medical accessories: After a serious accident, you may require a number of medical devices to maintain your mobility and independence.
  • Costs associated with disability: If you have suffered a permanent disability as the result of your accident, you may need to renovate your home to make it wheelchair-accessible. You may also require the services of an in-home medical assistant.

In addition to these medical expenses, you may also be able to recover compensation for a number of non-financial losses, including disability, disfigurement, pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life. A personal injury suit can also seek compensation for lost wages and other costs associated with your employment.
