Medical expenses can quickly exceed any amount you could possibly handle or pay off. Depending on the extent of your condition or injury, your need for medical treatment could be ongoing, which would result in ongoing medical expenses.

When you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, it is not just the initial trip to the hospital that you should be compensated for. The negligent person should be held financially responsible for all medical expenses. This may include the initial expenses including doctor’s bills, ER bills, X-rays, tests, surgeries, hospital stays, etc. It may also include ongoing bills, such as follow-up visits, counseling, physical or occupational therapy, future tests, surgeries, and hospital stays. Any medical expense that is directly or indirectly tied to the injury should be covered.
Depending on the hospital and the services provided, a stay in the hospital can cost a couple thousand dollars a day or more. This covers everything from overhead to specific tests and medications. The more severe your injuries are, the more it is going to cost to treat you. This is why it is important to seek compensation when your injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence.
