You won’t have any idea of your total medical expenses until you’re well on the road to recovery. If you accept a quick settlement, you can never ask for any more money, no matter how high your future medical bills might be, so don’t take the bait.

Rely on Your Attorney

Your lawyer will know how to recognize and counter any tactics to dispute or deny your claim. Your attorney will also consult with your doctors to estimate your future medical bills and to put a dollar amount on your pain and suffering in order to evaluate your claim and make a reasonable demand for compensation.

In some cases, the insurance company might utilize delay tactics, hoping that the statute of limitations will run and take away your option of filing a lawsuit in civil court to get fair compensation. Your lawyer will make sure you meet all legal deadlines and other procedural requirements.

Other Sources for Payment of Medical Bills

While the insurance claim process and negotiations play out, your lawyer can help you find ways to pay your current medical bills by filing claims with your own auto insurer or health insurer. Either or both companies should take care of your bills and recoup any money spent through a subrogation claim against your settlement from the trucking company’s insurer once your case is resolved.
