Many people often only take into account accident-related expenses immediately after their accident. But what they might not realize is that their one-time settlement or verdict can – and should – cover all their expenses for the rest of their life. Such expenses can include:
- Emergency surgery and medical care
- Follow-up medical appointments
- Physical therapy
- Additional surgical procedures
- Lost income during recovery period
- Lost future income if injury victim cannot return to work
- Transportation costs to and from medical appointments
- In-home nursing care
- Home modifications due to a permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
These are just some of the most common expenses for serious injury accidents. Each case is unique – and so is each settlement or verdict. That’s why it’s important that you talk to a lawyer as soon as possible about your specific case.
Why you need a lawyer
Even if someone clearly caused your accident, don’t simply assume you will be fairly compensated for your injury. In many cases, most people or corporations deny doing anything wrong. They might even try to claim that you are responsible for causing your own injury.
And then there are the insurance companies. They want you to believe they have your best interests at heart. But the reality is most insurance companies only care about making money. That’s why they will likely do everything they can to reduce or deny your claim.
That’s not right. That’s why we want to meet with you and develop a strategy that addresses your specific accident. Remember, you didn’t do anything wrong. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes. Make my team your team. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation right now.
