Can You Recover for Your Future Medical Expenses in a Personal Injury Case?
If another party caused your injury, you have the right to hold that party liable for the losses you suffered, including all related medical expenses. If you have already completed treatment for your injuries and are fully recovered, you can prove your expenses by providing your medical bills and evidence that your treatments were appropriate for your injuries. However, what happens if you are not fully recovered and will continue to incur medical expenses in the future?
Injuries Can Require Ongoing Care
Many serious injuries may require medical care for years or perhaps even for the rest of your life. Some examples of injuries that can have long-term effects include the following:
Spinal cord injuries
If an accident victim is permanently disabled because of his or her injury, that victim may need assistance with everyday activities and may require costly medical equipment. The fact that all medical treatment has not yet happened does not mean a victim does not have the right to be compensated for it. However, accurately estimating and proving future medical expenses can be a complex and challenging task.
Proving Future Losses
The party who caused your accident will almost certainly question the claimed estimation of your future losses. However, with the help of a personal injury law firm with proper resources, you can prove that you have claimed a reasonable amount of future damages. This process can include the help of medical experts who are familiar with the regular course of ongoing treatment for your particular injuries. It is important to have a lawyer handling your case who has experience representing clients with severe and lasting injuries.
