How do I Manage My Medical Bills After a Car Accident?

When you are injured in a car accident, medical bills can quickly pile up. Many Americans are financially unprepared for unforeseen medical expenses like these. In fact, CNBC reports that 137 million Americans are currently struggling with medical debt. That’s a full 41% of the population.

Medical expenses are often excessive, particularly when hospitalization is required. The average cost of a hospital stay after a motor vehicle accident is more than $55,000. Adding in the cost of rehabilitation and wages lost while unable to work, and medical debt can quickly spiral out of control – pouring over into other areas of life and impacting things like housing, food, and security.

When your medical expenses are the result of someone else’s actions, it should not be your responsibility to cover them. This is one of the most compelling reasons to hire an experienced car accident lawyer.

Damages in a Car Accident Lawsuit

Damages that are frequently sought in car accident claims include:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
  • Current and future lost wages
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering

Insurance offers may cover some of these expenses. They seldom, however, cover them all. Before accepting an insurance settlement, talk to attorney Ray Areshenko to gain a better understanding of your various rights and options.

Presettlement Advance

There are companies that offer advances on anticipated settlements. These can be helpful in some circumstances, but are not the right move for everyone. Attorney Areshenko can discuss these services as appropriate or needed while continuing to work towards the swiftest resolution possible.

No Recovery, No Fee

Mr. Areshenko works on a contingency fee basis. This means that he is paid a percentage of your final award or settlement. If you do not win your case, you pay nothing.

It is important to note that contingency agreements do not typically cover court fees and certain other charges. Continuously honest and upfront, we will provide you with information about these charges as they occur.
