The odds are high that you will, at some point in your driving career, be involved in a car crash. Sadly, there are drivers on the roadways who hold little regard for others on the road.
If you have been injured due to a car accident in Los Angeles, it is important that you seek medical care afterward. Many victims don’t seek medical care because they worry about being able to pay for the medical expenses. Fortunately, victims of a car accident can recover the cost of medical treatment through a claim. Some of the medical costs that you can recover after an auto accident in Los Angeles are:
- Doctor visits – Anytime you are injured in an accident you should see a doctor. Doctor visits can become very costly. You should seek to be compensated for all your doctor visits when filing a claim.
- Chiropractic visits – Neck and spine injuries are very common in auto accidents. A chiropractor may be a good choice to help with these injuries. The cost may also be recovered in your claim.
- Medical devices – Serious injuries and ongoing treatment sometimes require the victim to use medical devices away from the hospital. These devices may be paid for.
- ER visits – Whether your emergency room visits are from the initial accident or pain from days after, it may be recovered in a settlement.
When filing a claim for compensation, you will need to show proof of your medical expenses. Be sure to keep copies of ALL medical bills, including receipts for prescription medications.
