Personal Injury: Health Insurance May Only Pay for a Fraction of the Cost

If you have been injured due to the negligence of others, you may be experiencing many changes to your normal routine. You may be suffering from pain and adjusting to treatment for your injuries whether you were the victim of a car accident, medical malpractice, serious product defect, physical assault, or a slip and fall accident.

You may be angry and frustrated that your life has changed due to an oftentimes preventable incident. And while your greatest priority after sustaining a serious injury may be healing and returning to your normal lifestyle, the reality of your accident will continue to develop as you are also forced to focus on the finances surrounding the incident. Your medical bills may be the largest concern as you are constantly reminded of unpaid invoices.

Health insurance may not turn out to be as helpful as you contemplated. You may be left to worry you are going to suffer financially as a result of the out-of-pocket expenses that surround your medical care. These unexpected costs may include co-pays for medical visits, expensive prescriptions, and procedures that may not be covered by your health insurance. If you are suffering this level of pain both physically and financially, it is very possible you may have a strong personal injury case. You should not be bearing the troubling weight of medical expenses due to someone else’s recklessness. In addition, you may not be able to work due to your injuries, leaving your finances in further disarray.

This is a situation that should be handled by an experienced personal injury attorney, and from the beginning if possible. Adjusters are skilled at manipulating others who may not have experience with navigating an injury case. They may ask you to give information you are not comfortable with, give in to tape-recorded conversations, release medical files—and in the end, accept a settlement nowhere close to what you deserve.
