The Average Cost of Medical Care After a Car Accident

We all know that getting into a car accident is going to be expensive! Unfortunately, if you are injured, that cost may skyrocket. Medical care is almost always the biggest expense associated with a car accident. If you’ve been hurt in an automobile accident, you should contact us here at Rankin & Rankin for your free case evaluation so that we can assess your claim and determine if we can help you to get the money you are entitled to. While the average cost for medical care varies greatly, we at Rankin & Rankin will do everything in our power to make sure you are made as whole as possible, no matter how little or how greatly you were injured.

Average Cost

The average cost of car accident related medical care depends on factors unique to each case. Where you a pedestrian or on a motorcycle? What speed were the vehicles traveling before impact? What are the extent of your injuries? Depending on the facts of your potential case, you may have medical bills ranging from a couple hundred dollars to even a hundred thousand dollars in medical bills, or more. Many factors will influence the average medical cost of an automobile accident.

For example, one Insurance Information Association found that the average claim for bodily injury was $15,443! Unfortunately, it is all too easy to rack up thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. Without diligent representation, you may be faced with a pile of medical bills. It’s our job to make sure those responsible pay them.

Where Do These Costs Come From?

The total medical cost of an automobile accident comes from many possible sources, such as:

  • Ambulance/EMS Transportation
  • Emergency Department Visits
  • Diagnostic Tests – Such as X-rays, CT scans, etc.
  • Medications
  • Specialists
  • Follow-up Visits
  • Chiropractic Sessions

Other Considerations

Some car insurance policies may include personal injury protection (PIP) coverage which can assist you in covering any medical bills associated with an accident. However, personal injury protection coverage is not part of every car insurance contract and, even if your policy includes PIP coverage, it may not be enough to cover all your medical bills. In addition to costs related to medical care, costs associated with property damage, missed work, and pain and suffering certainly add up! Without legal representation, you may be missing out on money that you deserve as a result of your car accident. Let our firm help you to get what you deserve.
