How an Injury Affects your Finances
People who have been injured in an accident are suddenly faced with a range of difficult and frustrating circumstances. Especially if your accident was caused by the careless, negligent behavior of another person, you may feel as if you have been forced to face the effects of circumstances that were not your fault in the first place. While recovering from an injury takes a toll on your physical health, it can also push individuals and families deep into financial crisis.
If you have been injured in an accident, you may find yourself facing thousands of dollars in medical bills due to emergency assistance and on-going physical therapy or long-term care. Additionally, you may be forced to miss large amounts of time away from work, or may even be forced to change jobs or leave your job in order to accommodate your injuries. Even if you have a good insurance policy, you may still incur heavy debt since many insurance plans do not pay for particular treatments. For instance, many insurance companies do not pay bills related to:
- Ambulance services
- Helicopter relocation
- Out-of-network services
After an accident, you may be forced to pay these expenses out-of-pocket, amidst attempting to heal and deal with your other losses. And, if you are forced to change or quit your job, you may lose your insurance coverage from your employer altogether after a period of time.
Innocent victims should not be forced to suffer needlessly because of the negligence of another party. The Iowa personal injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. believe that the party at fault for the accident should be held responsible for your injuries and losses.
