What does car accident injury compensation cover ? How do I pay for my medical bills? Is there a way to get the at-fault party to pay for my future medical bills and my pain and suffering? These are all good and important legal questions after a Western New York car accident.
While each case is unique and should be evaluated by an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you understand your rights to compensation, injury compensation is generally available for:
- Past, present and future medical bills: compensation generally includes reimbursement for past and present medical bills stemming from the accident, as well as future medical bills. If you or your doctor anticipates that you will need additional surgeries, medical treatment or rehabilitative care, your personal injury attorney will likely factor that into your future medical expenses.
- Lost wages: Another area of car accident compensation is usually lost wages. If you missed work because of injuries, you may be entitled to those wages as part of your car accident compensation.
