You Will Want To Negotiate A Settlement That Will Cover Your Future Medical Treatment

For any serious injury that was caused by a car accident in DC Maryland or Virginia, there is a statute of limitation is that applies, meaning that the case will have to be filed in court by certain date. Most injury cases are settled with the other drivers insurance company but a car accident settlement is different then other cases.

Many people believe that the at fault drivers insurance company will pay for their medical treatment as they go, in other words, pay the doctors bills, hospitalization, anesthesia, surgery expenses, rehab, etc. as these are incurred. Liability insurance does not work that way however.

Instead, the insurance company will offer one lump sum amount of money to settle your case and compensate you for all of the damages. These could include medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, future medical expenses, future lost wages and damages for a permanent injury.

So it is critical to make sure that you understand the extent of your injuries, your ability to function after a serious accident, and your ability to earn a living despite your injuries.

Because the at fault drivers insurance company does not pay for your treatment as you go, you will have to settle your case or go to trial and get a verdict to compensate you for your injuries and damages. For your future medical treatment, you will need a physician to specifically state the future medical treatment you will need, cost of the future medical treatment, and when it will occur.

This can be a difficult thing to ask your doctor about. For our clients, we have developed a system. I’m working with a specialist and experts to make sure that your injuries and damages that will happen in the future are understood by the insurance company and you are compensated for those.

Many of our cases involve future medical treatment and life-changing injuries.
