Are Medical Bills Considered in a Bodily Injury Claim?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

Are Medical Bills Considered in a Bodily Injury Claim?Being injured due to the negligence or malfeasance of another party is always going to be a stressful and potentially life-altering scenario. As studies continue to show that the leading cause of bankruptcy within the United States is medical bills, those that have recently been injured and are in need of treatments, medication, or therapy should understand who is obligated to pay for their medical expenses and how our personal injury attorney in Los Angeles may be able to assist them in getting the compensation that they need.

The compensation that the injured party may be entitled too can loosely be broken down into economic damages and general damages. Economic damages are the amount of money that must be spent as a result of the accident or money that could not be made due to the accident or the following injuries. This includes medical bills, lost wages, expenses for rental cars, or any financial hardship that can be quantifiably measured. General damages are much more difficult to place a monetary amount on, but they include pain, emotional suffering, and distress.

These situations can become exceedingly complex, and it is not something that a victim should ever attempt to take on alone. Even cases that appear to be relatively straightforward can quickly become convoluted and victims may find that they are not receiving the compensation that they deserve. If you have recently been injured, contact the Law Offices of Hamdam and Associates today to see what options may be available to you.
