Can I Be Compensated for the Risk of Future Surgery After a Car Accident?

Free Consultation No fee unless we win!

Calculating future treatment for car accident injuries can be tricky. Victims may appear to heal, but an injury flares up unexpectedly later on.  This type of situation may occur with any car accident injury.  However, an attorney can negotiate with the insurance company so that your future medical needs relating to the injury are covered.  The car accident lawyers at Rutter Mills protect your rights.  We can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your present injuries and future surgical risks.

Reopening a Case

After an insurance company pays the settlement and closes the case, it is almost impossible to have the claim reopened.  For this reason, it is crucial to seek legal advice after a car accident, even if the insurance company’s offer sounds reasonable– and you do not think there is a risk of future surgery.  Insurance companies want to settle quickly and for as little money as possible. Insurance adjusters know that most accident victims want their money right away, and do not realize the potential consequences of not obtaining legal counsel before signing an agreement.

Future Medical Expenses

A car accident attorney will provide the insurance company with the likely prognosis of the client and their future medical treatment. This covers not only future surgery but other potential medical costs. The lawyer will also describe the client’s pain and suffering due to the accident and their recovery. In some situations, an economic and medical expert known as a life care planner is hired to determine the individual’s long-term physical and medical needs and their costs.
