Medical Bills for Treatment of Car Accident-Related Injuries
You may not have faced expensive medical bills before your accident. Unfortunately, having to receive treatment for your accident-related injuries has likely exposed you to the grim reality of the exorbitant costs associated with getting the medical care you need.
Suffering severe injuries in a car accident requires immediate medical attention. You were likely transported by ambulance to the emergency room to receive emergency medical treatment for your injuries. The transportation and emergency room visit can be incredibly expensive, and you will likely be billed for those costs. Even if you have medical insurance, your out-of-pocket costs can be so significant that they can cause you to go into serious debt.
And the costs don’t end there. If you needed to stay in the hospital for an extended time or needed to receive continued outpatient treatment with specialized physicians, those costs may have piled up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even less obvious but still significant costs, like prescription drugs or assistive devices like canes and walkers that you may need while recovering from your injuries, can add up.
Compensation for Your Medical Bills
You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries if someone else’s actions caused the accident in which you sustained them. The amount you may be compensated is based on the financial, physical, and emotional costs you’ve incurred as a result of your injuries.
In California, you may receive compensation or damages, even if you were partly to blame for the accident. This is due to the state’s pure comparative negligence law, which states that you can recover damages for your injuries in proportion to your fault. So whether you were one percent or 99 percent responsible for the accident, you may receive 99 percent or one percent of the damages you incurred in the accident.
You may receive both economic and non-economic damages, which don’t only cover your medical bills for your accident-related injuries. These damages also cover:
- Loss of income or wages
- Loss of future earning ability
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Property damage
- Loss of enjoyment in life
- Loss in quality of life
- Loss of consortium (a decline in personal relationships)
You may also be awarded exemplary damages in court if you can prove with clear and convincing evidence that the person who injured you acted with the intent to oppress or defraud, or with malice. The award of punitive damages is a rare punishment for wrongdoers and is meant to deter future, similar actions.
