Seeking Medical Treatment After an Accident

By Dianne Freed on March 13, 2018

Personal Injury Accident Attorney MarylandWhen you’re in an accident—any kind of accident—you no doubt feel overwhelmed and may not know where to turn. Always make your top priority your health and well-being. After an accident, you may feel dazed but believe that you’re otherwise fine. It’s always in your best interest, however, to err on the side of caution and seek medical attention after any significant accident. Physical injuries can develop with time, and you will only improve your prognosis with early treatment.

The Cost of Medical Treatments

If someone else’s negligence caused your injury, you may fear the exorbitant medical bills that will come. It’s true that you may face high medical costs after an accident-related injury, but your health is too important to leave to chance. Furthermore, if someone else’s negligence caused your injury, you can hold that person legally responsible for those damages, which include your medical expenses.

The extensive medical costs associated with a serious accident may include:

  • Emergency transportation from the scene of the accident and emergency care
  • Surgeries and aftercare
  • Care and treatment from your doctor, specialists, and therapists
  • Prescription medications
  • Ongoing care
  • Adaptive devices
  • Follow-up care

It’s a lot to manage on your own, but an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney at Alpert Schreyer, LLC, will help you navigate your claim toward the compensation to which you are entitled and that will adequately cover your medical expenses.

The Insurance Company

If someone else’s negligence caused your injury, you will almost always deal with an insurance company to receive your compensation. Remember, however, that your medical treatments could go on for years. Some unpredictable injuries continue to manifest with time—necessitating long-term medical treatments, care, and expenses.

Insurance companies are in the business of turning a profit, and that means paying out as little as they can manage. Your best interests are not the insurance company’s top priority. Don’t feel pressured to accept a swift insurance settlement. Instead, consult a skilled personal injury attorney who will help ensure that you’re adequately compensated for the actual injuries you’ve sustained.

Starting Your Claim

If you were in an accident that someone else’s negligence caused, seek immediate medical attention. It’s the best thing for your health—and it’s the best thing for your accident claim. Yes, medical care is expensive, but it’s too important to bypass.
