Medical Expenses: Personal Injury Settlements & Awards
Medical expenses typically make up the majority of a personal injury settlement or jury award. This is a key part of determining the true and fair value of your claim, and your Gainesville personal injury lawyer can conduct a thorough review of your case to determine precisely what medical expenses you have already incurred as well as those that you may be expected to face in the future. This takes a complete and careful analysis of the matter and the involvement of expert witnesses in medicine to first determine and then prove the extent of medical expenses that you may face.
Hospitalization, ambulance transportation, medical treatment, medication, medical supplies, travel expenses to and from medical appointments, chiropractic care, physical therapy, surgery and assistive devices may be just a few of the medical expenses that a person may face in relation to a personal injury. Additionally, an injured party may have to pay for a live-in nurse or other person to provide continued care in performing day-to-day activities or medical care. All of this can add up to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, making it all the more important to recover complete financial compensation for any and all medical expenses.
When an injury attorney at our Gainesville law firm handles a personal injury claim, we seek monetary damages for current medical expenses and for future or continued care. We look at long-term medical care that may be required and utilize the experience of medical professionals to determine exactly what may be needed in the future. We have two primary goals here: to help you get the best medical care and to ensure this is paid for by the responsible party or parties.
