Piazza, Simmons, & Grant

Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers

An accident that leads to an injury can be a tragic event, made even more difficult by a stack of medical bills mounting in your mailbox. Costly emergent care expenses often include:

  • Emergency room care Depending on your insurance, a trip to the emergency room can be extremely costly. In a recent article, The Atlantic reported that a visit to the emergency room without insurance, on average, costs about as much as one month’s rent. Even with insurance, the cost can be quite expensive.
  • Overnight hospital stay If you are required to spend the night at the hospital, the expense is a quite a bit more than a night at the Marriott. In Connecticut, an overnight stay at the hospital will range from about $2,300 to $3,200 (depending on the hospital) for those who don’t have medical insurance. For those with insurance, the cost could be similar, depending on your deductible and how far you are from meeting it.
  • Lab testing Doctors and hospitals often have a separate laboratory perform tests such as ultrasounds, blood tests, and MRIs. Expect to see a separate bill show up.
  • Prescription medication Medication to treat an ongoing ailment can be one of the biggest drains on your bank account. If you are taking multiple medications to treat your injury, the cost can go up exponentially. The goal is to use medication short-term only, but in some serious injury cases, medication becomes a long-term necessity.

Who Will Pay for the Cost of Medical Treatment?

When you’re injured and unable to work, the cost of medical treatment can add up quickly. Figuring out who is responsible for paying medical bills—and getting them paid—can be challenging after an accidental injury. If you were not at fault in an accident and another party may be liable for your medical bills, it is best to obtain experienced legal representation.

Establishing fault in a car accident can be a difficult – yet necessary – task. Connecticut is an ”at-fault” state, meaning that insurance companies will pay damages based on the parties’ degree of fault. Insurance companies have attorneys who defend and try to minimize the degree of fault attributed to their insured. A successful personal injury lawyer can take on the insurance company attorneys and help you work through the process of seeking and recovering damages from all liable parties.
