Doctor's Bills

Doctor's Bills

Following a traumatic personal injury, patients and families will be dealing with intense physical and emotional pain. In the most severe situations, emergency medical care will need to be followed by months or years of doctor's visits, prescription drug treatments and/or various therapies.

In no time at all, the cost of doctor's bills can skyrocket, compounding the stress that injured patients and families are combating.

Compensation for Hefty Doctor Bills

However, if a patient’s injuries were caused by another person or party, he or she will likely be entitled to compensation to help pay for doctor's bills and long-term treatment needs by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party(s).

These patients should meet with a personal injury attorney, once their health is stabilized, to:

• Find out if they have a case.
• Learn more about the process of filing, compiling and winning a personal injury lawsuit.
• Get information about settlements in lawsuits similar to their own.
• Get advice on whether pursuing an individual case or joining a class action lawsuit is best for their situation and needs.

Types of Injuries Compensated Via Personal Injury Lawsuits

A variety of injuries can form the basis of personal injury claims, as long as those injuries were caused by another person's:

• intentional harm
• negligence
• recklessness

Most commonly, injuries that form the basis of personal injury lawsuits include:

• asbestos cancer, including mesothelioma
• birth injuries, including cerebral palsy
• traumatic brain injuries
• heart attack and/or stroke (typically resulting from drug side effects)
• neck and spine injuries, including erb's palsy

In most cases, the damage caused by these severe personal injuries will be incurable and will demand lifelong treatment, including:

• hospital visits
• occupational therapy
• physical therapy
• prescription drugs
• speech therapy
• surgeries
• palliative care (this treatment is aimed at improving the patient's quality of life via specialized equipment, including wheelchairs, voice-activated computer programs, etc.)
