If you get injured in an accident, you probably already know that you can sue for compensation that would cover your medical expenses. What about your future medical expenses though? If your injuries are going to require additional treatments and leave lasting effects on your life and finances, shouldn’t your compensation cover these costs as well? Yes, your compensation should cover that, and that is why a Clinton, New Jersey personal injury lawyer from our firm is ready to help you fight for a fair settlement that helps you address your future healthcare needs.
What Kinds of Cases Would Allow Me to Sue for Future Medical Expenses?
There are many situations where you should be able to ask for future medical expenses as a part of your compensation. Our attorneys have tried many types of personal injury cases, and this is a common request when a plaintiff is going to have medical issues that they will have to deal with for life. You can ask for future medical expenses in:
- Slip and fall cases
- Product liability cases
- Auto accident cases
- Medical malpractice cases
Our personal injury lawyers will evaluate your case and help you argue for the compensation that you deserve.
When Should I Ask for Future Medical Expenses?
You should ask for future medical expenses if your accident is going to leave you with lasting problems. Sometimes people get out of an accident with scrapes and minor injuries. They get treated and they are all set. They do not have to worry about future medical bills.
People with more serious injuries do have to worry about additional visits to the doctor or hospital though, and they need to fight to make sure that these costs are considered when their compensation is awarded. Whether you will need additional surgeries or treatments, physical rehabilitation, or therapy of some kind, all of this needs to be part of the conversation around fair compensation.
How Are Future Medical Expenses Calculated?
It can be tough to guess exactly how much you will need to spend on medical expenses in the future, but there are some ways to estimate and show how your injuries could potentially affect your future finances. Your lawyer can work with your doctors to figure out what kinds of treatments you will need and how long you will need care for. If your injuries are going to affect you for life, we can consult an experienced life care planner who can more accurately gauge how much you will need to spend on future medical care.
