How Much Does It Cost to Treat Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries?

That’s the million dollar question, isn’t it?

The amount it can cost to treat motor vehicle accident injuries is as varied as the types of injuries that present themselves.

Medical expenses could be as low as the cost of a single doctor visit to as much as a major surgery, an extended hospital stay, and months of rehab. The important thing is to meet with a doctor and work with a caring attorney who can help you understand the best treatment for your injuries and how to anticipate the costs.

As a personal injury lawyer in New Port Richey with more than 25 years of experience, my team and I have a thorough understanding of the various types of injuries that can be sustained in car accidents and the treatment options for those injuries. A person’s injuries may be resolved by taking muscle relaxants or anti-inflammatory medications, but this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, other types of treatment are necessary to restore a person to full health.

If prescribed medications don’t seem to be working, an injured person might benefit from therapy. If more treatment is required, sometimes steroids or epidural injections may be a good option. In some cases, surgery may be the only way to repair significant injuries. Injections and surgeries never sound appealing, and they can be very costly. Yet, if the other options aren’t enough, these expensive procedures may be necessary.

Unfortunately, in their effort to keep costs down, insurance companies are often reluctant to cover more expensive treatments. Your insurance company may deny coverage of a treatment option even if your doctor recommends it. Or it may offer a settlement that is far below the cost of the medical treatment you may eventually need.

This is why it’s important to consult with an experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer.

An attorney who has undertaken hundreds of auto accident cases over many years, understands the types of injuries that can be sustained in accidents, the medical terminology, the treatment options, and the tactics insurance companies use to try to save money.

When my team and I work with our clients, we fight for the financial compensation from their insurance company necessary so that they can receive the treatment that they will most likely need to bring about the best recovery possible.
