Who Pays Medical Expenses After a Truck Accident

paying medical bills after truck accidentTraffic accidents involving tractor-trailers, semis, big rigs, 18-wheelers, and other large commercial trucks kill multiple people and seriously injure thousands in the state each year, according to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.

After a devastating truck crash, individuals who sustained catastrophic injuries often require extensive medical treatment, which can then lead to lost wages due to time away from work, as well as a deluge of unavoidable and insurmountable medical debt. The situation causes many truck crash victims to worry about whether they’ll ever be able to cover all of these unexpected medical expenses and get back on sure financial footing.

Fortunately, victims injured in truck accidents caused by a negligent truck driver, trucking company, or another at-fault party can pursue compensation for a wide range of damages, including crash-related medical expenses. Damages for medical expenses aren’t limited to the cost of initial treatment, but can include any loss related to the diagnosis, continued care, or cure of injuries or medical conditions suffered in the truck accident.

Examples of medical expenses in a truck crash case can include:

  • Ambulance costs
  • Emergency room care
  • Hospitalizations
  • Surgical procedures
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Diagnostic tests
  • Medications
  • Doctors’ visits
  • Specialist fees
  • Physical, occupational, and other rehabilitation therapies
  • Crutches, prosthetic limbs, wheelchairs, and other assistive medical devices
  • Assistive nursing care
  • Accident-related medical travel expenses

An experienced Georgia attorney can help truck crash victims determine which medical costs they might be able to recover in their case. The use of medical records, injury-related medical bills and receipts, and other evidence is essential to prove those losses during settlement negotiations or in court.

Moving through the personal injury litigation process takes time. However, injured individuals may be able to work out special arrangements with medical providers that allow them to delay payment until the time of settlement.
