How to Recover for Medical Expenses

Prepped surgical room

When you’ve been involved in a serious accident, such as a car or truck collision, you could have catastrophic injuries that will cost thousands of dollars in long-term medical care. To make matters more complicated, you may not even know the full extent of these injuries until you’ve seen several doctors and specialists – and you could already be worried about paying your bills for these initial consultations, let alone any future treatments.

At Thorp Law, we know it can be incredibly stressful to think about medical costs when you’ve been suffering from a major injury. While you may be tempted to accept the first settlement offer you get from an insurance company, an experienced Raleigh personal injury attorney will be more likely to help you recover the full amount for all your medical expenses.

Why Should I Wait Before Accepting a Settlement?

Insurance companies are often looking to cut costs. That’s why the first offer you receive from an insurance company after a serious accident is usually extremely low compared to the lifetime costs of your injury: They may be trying to take advantage of you, and put profits before the people in their charge.

In some select cases, settling isn’t such a bad idea. However, the more serious your injuries are, the more likely it will be that you need ongoing treatment, physical therapy, and multiple surgeries. It’s extremely rare for an insurance company to offer you that kind of money on the first offer.
