If you’ve been in a car accident, expenses can start piling up fast. Even small injuries can come with lost wages and repair costs, while more serious crashes can lead to thousands of dollars in medical bills. After the pain and trauma of a car accident, the last thing you and your family want is to deal with this financial headache. A car accident attorney from the Law Offices of Evan W. Kohn can help you navigate this landscape of insurers, courts, and hospitals. Here are answers to some frequently asked post-car accident financial questions. For more specific matters relating to an individual case, contact the Law Offices of Evan W. Kohn today.
Who Will Pay My Medical Bills?
The largest expense after a car accident will likely be the medical bills. In severe cases, post-accident medical expenses can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. For those with insurance, the bulk of those costs may be covered. A car accident attorney can work with your insurance company to seek personal injury damages on behalf of the injured party and to compensate for those expenses and any out of pocket costs the injured party may have incurred. For those without insurance, we can negotiate a payment plan with the healthcare provider to help attain immediate medical attention.
What If I Lose My Job?
Even minor accidents have a ripple effect of impacts. In serious cases, accidents can sideline people for too long to retain their jobs or debilitate them in a way that makes work difficult or impossible. In cases where clients are no longer able to work, a car accident attorney will work with experts to establish lost earnings and pinpoint a number that seeks to compensate for forfeited future earnings.
What About My Car?
Compared to the other concerns, the condition of a car may seem insignificant. But, for those who have been in an accident and relied on their vehicle to get to work, it can be yet another stressful item to manage. For those who are required to stay in the hospital, a car accident attorney can help handle the car insurance claim and the repair work with minimum hassle to the injured party.
